Demetra will give a half-day presentation on Hellenistic Time LordsRegister for Conference
Demetra George presents the first of a 12-part webinar series on the twelve astrological houses. Each program will focus in depth on one house, applying traditional astrological theory viewed through the lens of modern astrology. Demetra shares personal thoughts and insights gained over years of study. Each program will include live Q&A with Demetra.
Join Demetra for the first of 12 webinars exploring each of the 12 houses in depth.
Each planet expresses its nature through the topics of the house in which it is located, as well as having responsibility for the houses it rules. But in addition, certain planets also have a more global and universal function. Hellenistic astrology contains a number of techniques that indicate which planets rule the life as a whole in addition to a particular house topic. These planets speak to a person’s destiny, the path that leads to the destination, as well as the overall success, accidental good fortune, and eminence that a person is likely to encounter along the way.
October 5: Asteroid Goddesses: Integrating Asteroids into Chart Delineation
This day-long seminar will introduce the mythology, psychology and astrology behind the four major asteroids Ceres, Pallas, Juno, and Vesta who illuminate the feminine principle. It will also touch upon what to do with the thousands of other minor asteroids. Then Demetra will present a step-by-step procedure for gradually adding the asteroids into your practice – which asteroids are most important in any particular chart, how to research and interpret their meanings, setting orbs, synthesizing their principles with planets they aspect; and recognizing themes. The presentation will also cover resources such as computer software, ephemerides, books, websites, and newsletters.
Hellenistic Aspect Theory and Identifying Trauma
Ancient astrologers, like modern ones, interpreted planetary aspects as an easy or challenging blend of their respective natures. However Hellenistic and Medieval astrologers also looked to how one planet’s aspect rays could enhance or obstruct the significations of another planet, and most importantly, in certain circumstances could injure and render the other planet incapable of bringing forth the matters it represents in beneficial ways.
