Summer Astrology Retreat
Hellenistic Astrology Applied: A Practical Guide to Interpretation
Five-Day Intensive July 11-15, 2016 in Portland Oregon
Each astrological symbol has a range of expressions from beneficial to problematic. The challenge is discerning how and where within the range of ways a symbol will likely manifest in a particular chart. Why does Mars in the 2nd house in one person’s chart point to an enterprising and successful pursuit of wealth while in another chart it indicates conflict over money resulting in financial loss? The genius of traditional astrology lies in its specific guidelines that help the astrologer understand which factors incline a planet's expression toward its best outcome for the individual and which factors undermine its agenda.
Join us for a rare interactive hands-on learning intensive focused upon applying the first principles of traditional astrology – sect, zodiacal rulerships, solar phase, aspects and maltreatment – to chart interpretation of planets in houses, including your own. Each day of the workshop will include a morning lecture and an afternoon of group study and participant presentations interpreting the meaning of the principles in actual charts. The last hour of each day will be devoted to working through the concepts in your own chart with the opportunity for personal coaching, evaluation of your work, and questions and answers. Demetra and her team of TA’s will review everyone’s work to insure that the participants understand the correct applications of the principles. Our goal is to train you in how to make the final judgment according to the chart on what can be expected from each planet relative to the house it occupies and rules.
