19:00 A new look at some old houses Penny Thornton

Over the past few years, I have had reason to look at the twelve houses with a new pair of eyes. In large part, this has been inspired by my work with students for whom the “old” labels no longer made a lot of sense. What do work and health have in common? Why are these two totally different aspects of existence properties of the sixth house? And what do we do about planets in the twelfth house? How can planets that have just risen over the Ascendant be watered down somehow? Bit by bit, house by house, I came up with a matrix that fits contemporary times.

Biography: Penny Thornton was trained by the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London, and was awarded its Diploma in 1977. Over the years, she has taught and lectured in the UK, Europe, Australia, and North America, and she now offers her own introductory course on astrology. Her clients come from all over the world and all walks of life. In 2019 she began a weekly video series on YouTube, bringing real astrology to the masses.

20:00 The Life of Alan Leo Ted Capstick

We will look at the life and work of Alan Leo, highlighting the spiritual aspects of his work as a Theosophist and Esoteric Astrologer. We will further consider the challenges and opportunities offered by his natal chart, particularly with respect to his karma.

Biography: Ted Capstick, by his early thirties he was studying the Esoteric Philosophy of Alice Bailey and in later years joined the Arcane School to complete his formal study of her work. In 1997, he was introduced to Dr. Douglas Baker, writer of over one hundred books on all aspects of esoteric science, and fifteen thousand lectures world- wide, and Ted became a member of his group, joined him and lectured on several of his tours in England, Italy and South Africa. Ted was taught Esoteric Astrology by Dr. Baker to a professional standard and has practised this since, along with teaching the subject through workshops and courses. Ted has been a member of the Theosophical Society in England for twenty years, and spoken at the summer schools every year continuously since 2006, and is a regular speaker around the country at individual lodges. Ted started out life as a mathematician from University, but decided on a career in finance, became a qualified accountant and worked in the NHS for 32 years, leaving his final post as Head of Finance for North Wales in 2007 in order to concentrate on disseminating the Wisdom.
