May 3rd: Political astrology – The Election, EU, UK union etc.
A Talk by Robyn Ray
In this world of rapid change and uncertainty, as we move from the Great Age of Pisces into the new Age of Aquarius, what sort of World will we now create? What do the coming months offer us and are we able to see the possibilities of the future?
Do we, mankind, hold the key or are we simply flotsam, being pushed along by the current of world events? What with Brexit, Trump and possibly Le Pen, what more can we expect, in the coming few years and is there something positive to be gained from all this disruption?
Robyn Ray’s interest in astrology began in the eighties. She spent many years studying with various astrological bodies, gaining her Diploma from the Faculty of Astrological Studies in 1990.
She is one of just a handful of experienced astrologers who also completed a two year Counselling Diploma course with the Faculty of Astrological Studies based on humanistic and transpersonal psychology. The F.A.S. is widely regarded as one of the foremost teaching bodies for astrologers in the world.
Besides private astrological consultations and ongoing counselling work, Robyn also teaches and runs workshops. She particularly enjoys supervising regular interpretation groups where the participants bring their own selection of charts. Robyn believes that most people can benefit from learning enough astrology to be able to use their own charts, as a guide to dealing with some of life’s challenges. In this respect, regular mini courses are arranged for this purpose.
Back in the early nineties, Robyn was one of the first members of the renowned Association of Professional Astrologers International, where she worked for several years as a Council Member and Treasurer.
The APAI awarded Robyn a Fellowship in 2005 in recognition of her contribution to the field of astrology.

June 7th: As we head towards Pluto in Aquarius
A Talk by Roy Gillett
As Saturn and then Jupiter join Pluto in Capricorn the world faces a major confrontation with reality. Roy’s talk will show we are at a key point in the broad sweep of history.

A Talk by Sue Merlyn Farebrother, DFAstrolS, MA

July 5th: The Quincunxes of Love
A Talk by Phoebe Wyss
Seeing aspect lines in the horoscope as pathways, our quincunxes appear as narrow, twisted paths that are easily overlooked, and which lead to places we don’t expect. Phoebe will discuss this often neglected but important astrological aspect using the examples of the zodiac quincunxes between the Venus signs of Libra, Taurus and Pisces. She will show how these can be used as keys to some of the most troublesome patterns in our love-life.

July 19th: The August Solar Eclipse and the Royal Star Regulus
An Illustrated Presentation by Pam Carruthers
Solar Eclipses mark endings and beginnings. The Moon’s nodes change sign this year and begin their 18 month journey through Leo and Aquarius. The total Solar Eclipse on 21st August is the first eclipse in this new cycle. It occurs at 28 degrees Leo on the Royal star Regulus, which happens to be on the ascendant of President Trump.
“The August 2017 eclipse will be the first with a path of totality crossing the USA’s Pacific coast and Atlantic coast since 1918. Also, its path of totality makes landfall exclusively within the United States, making it the first such eclipse since the country’s independence in 1776.” Wikipedia
