 10:30-10:45 Hande KAZANOVA Introduction

10:45-11:45 Öner DÖŞER Our Natal Chart and realizing the ideal destiny

When we examine our natal charts, we may both see our limitations, the conditions and the situations we may face which express our fated plan and also our destiny which we may realize through our free will and choices. We are given the power to influence some conditions within our fated plan to a certain extent, to avoid certain situations, to lighten some affects and to activate our potentials as seen in our charts and as a result to reach our ideal destiny!

11:45-12:45 Dr. Barış ÖZKIRIŞ What Really Matters is the Reaction

Each soul that desires to excel in its journey of evolution and to reach the divine love finds a physical body for passing the numerous exams of the worldly life. Even if he comes to the Earth for many times as the reincarnation theory proposes or if this is his one and only life on Earth, he is always in interaction with the cosmic plan through his willpower which is gifted him by the Creator. The natal chart, which is based on the moment that he gets his first breath, manifests his basic personality and his tendencies that he is to display and his interaction with the Earth. However, we should never forget that the soul is always superior to the birth chart because when the native reaches awareness about the positive and negative traits of his natal chart and uses his willpower effectively, he may activate the positive potentials that were already promised and even reach transcendence. In short, what really matters is the native’s “attitude” towards the promises of his chart and his “reactions” to their affects.           

12:45-13:15 Lunch

13:15-14:15 Dr. Glenn PERRY Karma, Fate, and Free Will in Astrology

Astrology illuminates the inner world of psyche, which we experience as free, and the outer world of events that we experience as fate. In this lecture, we will examine how every variable of the birth chart simultaneously symbolizes an internal factor and external condition. The implication is that inner and outer are mirror images of one another; fate is the psyche turned inside out. When karma is conceptualized as feedback set in motion by the psyche’s own internal processes, the false dichotomy of fate versus free will is resolved.

14:15-14:30 Coffee Break

14:30-15:30 Benjamin N. DYKES Determinism and Freewill in Astrology

Many people think it is obvious that we have free will. But where did this idea come from, and are there any reasons not to believe in it? In this talk, I will discuss where the idea of free will came from, why it might not be such a good thing, and why some kind of strong determinism is both responsible and important for astrological work.

15:30-16:30 Deborah HOULDİNG Providence, Prophecy, and the Divinational Role of Judicial Astrology

Astrology has played a role in all world cultures, and for most of its history, a fine line has preserved the legally accepted and theologically approved practice of 'natural astrology' from the harsh consequences attached to the practice of 'judicial astrology' when it "transgresses its limits" and blasphemously claims to know the Will of God. This presentation explores what astrologers have had to say about the philosophical issues at stake, and the stance they have taken towards the thorny issue of fate and free will in traditional predictive practice.

16:30-16:45 Öner DÖŞER-Hande KAZANOVA Closing Speech, Fomalhaut Award ceremony

Öner DÖŞER and Hande KAZANOVA will be making the closing speech where he will thank all lecturers and will also announce the owner of this year’s Fomalhaut Award.


WORKSHOPS (For Astrology Professionals and Students – payment is required)

March 21st, 2014, Friday

Time               : 10:30-16:30

Place              : Istanbul Mercure Hotel, Altunizade

Lecturer        : Dr. Glenn PERRY

Subject          : The Developmental Age Method: “Unfolding the Lotus”

Zodiacal signs can be understood as developmental stages of specific quality and duration. In this workshop, we will examine how houses represent the same 12-stage process, while also revealing the native’s actual experience during particular periods. Planets in houses signal when that planetary process will be most acute, as well as the purpose of challenges that occur at precise phases of development. Each sequential house-stage is like the opening of a petal in the lotus, symbolizing the gradual unfolding of consciousness across the life span.

10:30-13:30 The Developmental Age Method: “Unfolding the Lotus”-1

13:30-14:30 Lunch

14:30-16:30 The Developmental Age Method: “Unfolding the Lotus”-2


March 22nd, 2014, Saturday

Time               : 10:30-16:30

Place              : Istanbul Mercure Hotel, Altunizade

Lecturer        : Deborah HOULDING

Subject          : The Horary Consultation

Horary astrology has a rightful place in every astrologer's practice, being one of the most incisive techniques for offering guidance through problems and crisis. It has greater scope and flexibility than most astrologers realize with the added advantage that its techniques are easy to master once a few core principles are understood. This workshop demonstrates a systematic approach to horary judgment, illustrated by a variety of proven case histories. It will show horary technique to be a necessary tool for every modern astrologer, simple enough to be of immediate practical value, whilst powerful enough to change the lives of people who are trapped in cycles of despair. 

This lecture is suitable for all levels of experience.

10:30-13:30 The Horary Consultation 1

13:30-14:30 Lunch

14:30-16:30 The Horary Consultation 2


March 23rd, 2014, Sunday

Time               : 10:30-16:30

Place              : Istanbul Mercure Hotel, Altunizade

Lecturer        : Dr. Benjamin N. DYKES

Subject          : Fundamentals of Delineation, the Victor of the Chart

This workshop will introduce participants to key ideas in traditional chart interpretation, and prepare them for reading a chart from start to finish. First, we will look at basic rules for interpreting houses and planets, focusing on how a planet’s location connects two houses together. Second, we will study the four main dignities and counter-dignities: rulership by house, exaltation, detriment, and fall. Third, we will practice with a very important concept, “aversion”: when two planets or a planet and sign do not aspect each other, especially when a planet does not aspect its own sign. This will lead to important insights when reading charts. Fourth, we will look at some basic annual predictive techniques: profections, transits, and (if there is time) the solar return chart. Finally, we will learn about and practice several medieval and Renaissance methods of finding the ruling planet in the chart, sometimes called its “victor.” Participants will redraw their charts in Whole Sign and practice on their own charts to see how these techniques work in their own lives.
