January 6th: Life Time Astrology: Who initiated your conception?
A Talk by Tad Mann

From there, life is a process in time.

Astrology Day January 9th with Tad Mann
Why Time Flies — Using Life Time Astrology
We often ignore the fact that our life begins at conception. During Gestation we are imprinted with our genetic inheritance while inside our mother. From conception, the events and psychological developments of our life unfold in a logarithmic sequence around the horoscope circle from conception to old age.
The earlier they occur, the more energy they carry.
What seems chaotic carries an order that unfolds in time, so learn how to utilize this process.
As we age, time passes faster and faster and you can experience this as you age. Learn why time flies, and how to decode your earliest important influences in your horoscope as they directly affect your creativity, sexuality and relationships for the rest of your life, including the present.
Every participant will receive a chart and list of Life Time dates, so include birth information when you sign up to attend.
January 20th: A Very Scorpio January
A Talk by Jessica Adams
It might surprise you to know that January 2016 is dominated by the sign of Scorpio. Mars moves there on the 3rd and joins the asteroids Panacea, Cupido, Aesculapia and Juno. What do these asteroids mean in your horoscope and why is Scorpio the sign associated with sex and death? Come along and see for yourself how the Scorpio stellium has an impact as 2016 begins.

February 3rd: Planets in Dialogue
An Evening with John Wadsworth & Andreea Bradu
John and Andreea will perform a series of seven dialogues from their repertoire of astrological theatre pieces. Each short performance carries an evocative power to awaken the planetary archetypes and can open up a deep enquiry into how the planets operate astrologically in our lives.
These rhyming dialogues are frequently described as being Shakespearian in style. They draw on the planets mythic and astrological symbolism and illustrate the dynamic tensions that exist between the archetypes. The dialogues offer a powerful medicine which can help elucidate how these relationships are experienced in people’s lives.
John Wadsworth is a professional astrologer, teacher, writer and pioneer of astrological theatre. He runs the Kairos School of Astrology in Glastonbury and is the founder of The Alchemical Journey.
Andreea is an empathic healer, writer and performer, working with music, dance and drama to foster connection, dialogue and understanding. For the past twelve months, they have been co-facilitating meditation evenings, workshops and pilgrimages in the landscape. They began writing the planetary dialogues together in December 2014.
February 17th: Mars Retrograde
A Talk by Pam Carruthers
Mars only goes retrograde every 2 years, 2 months so it can catch us unawares. In 2016 this retrograde period lasts for approx. 80 days and it will have an important effect on all zodiac signs, especially Aries and Scorpio who are ruled by Mars.
Mars is the god of war, so can cause trouble when retrograde. New plans may backfire or we can lose our drive to succeed. We can become tetchy and lose our temper if we aren’t aware of the implications of this period.
What needs to come into conscious awareness? Be prepared and find out the key dates when anger issues can boil over.

March 2nd: The Moon’s Nodes, West and East
A Talk by Adam Smith
Many astrologers today are unsure of how to interpret the Moon’s nodes in their natal practice. The Western ‘karmic’ view is a modern innovation that is assumed to have been borrowed from India, but what does Jyotish actually say about Rahu and Ketu?
Adam explores the notion of karmic inheritance in the chart and what can we learn by integrating these vital points into our astrology.
Adam Smith has a background in Yoga meditation and has studied both Western and Vedic astrology for 25 years. Past editor of Astrology Quarterly and The AA Journal, Adam’s work has appeared in The Daily Mail, BBC magazines, The Sydney Sun Herald and Harper’s Bazaar, and his book Saturn, Fatal Attraction was published in 2007. Adam offers consultations and traditional Vedic remedies through his website www.astrovedas.com
March 16th: The Birth Chart as a LifeClock
A talk by Marilyn Burnett
Using the Huber Method of Astrological Psychology Marilyn will show how the Birth Chart can be used as a means of Age Progression – it is in fact a Time Clock of our Life.
As an extremely valuable tool it can be used as a map, pinpointing our significant life experiences. It can also show exactly where we are on life’s journey, what we might currently be undergoing and offer new meaning. It provides insight into our psychological growth, the phases we pass through from birth through childhood, adolescence, adulthood and into maturity and is therefore a invaluable aid to personal understanding and self-development.
Marilyn Burnett has studied astrology for nearly fifteen years and holds an Astrological Psychology Association diploma. Following a successful career in retail holding an executive position, she now practices the Huber Method of astrology professionally. Having discovered the invaluable healing tool of astrological psychology, she now seeks to impart this knowledge at seminars and in groups and workshops. She is also a natural energy healer with the Sussex Healers’ Association. For more information visit: www.astrofocus.co.uk
