Demetra George presents the 8th of a 12-part webinar series on the twelve astrological houses. Each program focuses 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 includes live Q&A with Demetra.
Why did ancient astrologers call the 8th house the "Idle Inactive Place"? Historically, its primary concern has been the nature of one’s own death and inheriting the goods of the deceased; but over time the meaning changed to include fears, anxieties, the occult, and spiritualism. By the modern period the eighth house has come to symbolize transformation, regeneration, and deep sexuality. Did the modern insights foreshadow the emergence of AIDS, where sex and death intertwine?
Demetra presents at the FEDERATION OF AUSTRALIAN ASTROLOGERS Conference in Sydney in January 2016.
