Saturday 25 March: SkyPortal – The Big Transits of 2023

Brighton Astrology Circle would like to invite you to join us on 25 March 2023 for our in person workshop “SkyPortal – The Big Transits of 2023”


Part One: 10am – 12.30 am (with a coffee break)

Pluto in Aquarius: from Breakdown to Breakthrough

Historically the Pluto in Aquarius times have been periods of tumult and radical change, involving the collapse of long-standing social structures and values. But they were also times when ingenious inventions and discoveries created new social forms and brought material progress. However on this occasion the transit coincides with a looming  crisis that’s unprecedented in history. We must either reverse the galloping climate change our modern life style has created or face extinction. We astrologers realise that the next 20 years while Pluto is in Aquarius are crucial if we wish to turn things round and emerge reborn into a brave new world in 2043?

In this workshop we will examine the collective crisis from a personal point of view as reflected in our charts. Different experiential structures will be used to gain in a playful way a deeper understanding of the meaning the Pluto in Aquarius transit has for us as individuals. The central question we will ask is what deeply engrained patterns of thinking, feeling and acting that keep us attached to the past must now die so that new attitudes to living on this planet can be born, bringing an increase in happiness, love and togetherness into our lives and contributing to transform breakdown into breakthrough

Phoebe Wyss is a Hove astrologer with 40 years experience in giving consultations, courses and workshops and is an experienced public speaker. She also trained to be a past-life therapist back in the 1980s in Germany, and for many years combined regression work with natal astrology in her practice.  She’s published an astrological board game, two books on the astrological archetypes and her latest book – Inside the Cosmic Mind: Archetypal Astrology and the New Cosmology – was published in 2014.


Part Two: 1.30pm – 4.00pm (with a tea break)

Saturn Enters Pisces – When the Structure Begins to Shift and Change

Saturn moves into Pisces on the 7th March 2023 and begins a three year transit of this most sensitive and fluctuating water sign of feelings. Saturn is known as a taskmaster of consolidation, of making things real, and its purpose is to embody the world of rules, boundaries and tests. What will happen when the planet of limitation enters the boundless ocean of being? A new spiritual structure for humanity?

Saturn spends approximately 3 years in each zodiac sign and makes a complete orbit around the zodiac in 29.6 years. The last time it entered Pisces was the 22nd May 1993 until the 7th April 1996 (also the 1960’s cycle of  25th March 1964 through to 3rd march 1967). Julian will review this cycle historically with regards to what we are about to experience; we will look at the Saturn transits, and play around with some empowering and creative metaphors.

Be sure to bring your chart along with you, and Julian will review your Saturn experience and provide some useful predictions for your next three years…
