Workshop summaries


  • DEBORAH HOULDING,UK: 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 its core principles are properly understood. This workshop demonstrates a systematic approach to horary judgment, illustrated by a variety of recent case histories. It will show horary technique to be a necessary tool for every modern astrologer, simple enough to be of immediate practical value, yet powerful enough to change the lives of people who are trapped in cycles of despair. This lecture is suitable for all levels of experience.

  • MAURICE CHARVET, France: Looking for the winner in sport and political contests

Besides personal astrology who deals with individuals, there are tools to forecast what will happen to many people involved in a special event, such as sport contests, horse races or… political elections. Instead of personal and natal charts, event charts are used, which requires a different point of view. During this workshop, we will see how to analyse an event chart according to the kind of contest that is to be forcasted, and how to use the symbolism of planets and signs to choose the winner. Then, we will study in a similar way how to predict the result of political

elections. Incidentally, we will use lunar astrology, a not well known but very efficient and simple predictive method.

Numerous cases will be used to illustrate these astrological tools, which can as well be interesting for those who are interested in sports betting.

  • ONER DOSER, Turkey: Hints on Solar Return Charts

A solar return chart is a chart erected for the time that the transiting Sun returns to the position of the natal Sun (degree, minute and second.).  As a predictive tool, the solar return is a powerful technique for examining the events of the year ahead, the opportunities and challenges, the themes and issues that will arise during the next solar year, from this birthday to the next.  In this workshop, Öner Doser will focus on the most important methodes of interpretation for Solar return charts and will be demonstrating how the rules of this technique work magnificently by using his own chart as an example.

  • BENJAMIN DYKES, USA: Traditional Predictive Astrology: Distributions through the Bounds

This special workshop will teach you how to use “distributions,” an ancient and powerful predictive technique, in both natal and solar return charts. Distributions (sometimes called directing through the bounds/terms) divide the life up into chapters, in which various issues will arise in life. Special rules govern when these affairs will be more intensified. When applied in a solar return, they can yield a year-long story with events that are accurately predicted to within a week or a day.

Note: This workshop also works best if attendees submit their birth data to the organizer, so Ben Dykes can provide everyone with their own personal printouts and charts adapted to these techniques. Attendees are also encouraged to bring a scientific calculator.
