Dying to be Me:
Musings on Death and Near-Death Charts


From studying charts of those passing on—or nearly passing on—I have begun to question the hegemony of the birth chart in the astrological natal tradition. In this talk I discuss examples of deaths and near deaths, including ones from my own practice, that encourage me to move beyond the fixed nature of the nativity and come to a more fluid astrology.

Cutting through the Chaos:
Honing Housekeeping in your Horoscopy
with Graham Ibell


 
Psychologically-oriented astrologers are often excellent at approaching a chart from an archetypal, internal and dynamic perspective. But we often fall down when trying to meet our client’s real-world needs. Today we will explore ways of using the houses and house rulers to engage more specifically, externally and personally with a natal chart.

Class with Colleen 
Chain Reaction: the Astrology of Cycles and Returns

 
The most fundamental, and certainly the most predictable aspect to astrology is unquestionably the carefully choreographed path each planet follows.They dance alone, partner and change partners as they systematically spin their way through a preordained cosmic dance.Our natal chart initiates our relationship with each and every planet, and as time passes day by day, year after year, cycle upon cycle, a complex mix of planetary relationships weaves its way into the tapestry of our life.
 
Cycles are not random and returns are not isolated, as with all things astrological they are simply a part of the whole, each is independent of, but inter-dependent on the next. This class will look at returns; explain their generic meanings, and concentrating on those from Jupiter out, we will investigate how each one impacts on our life.The main focus of the class, however, will be on how the return (or cycle), of one planet dovetails into the return of another, and how this builds into a chain reaction of cause and effect.
 
As we grow up and then grow old we do so via a ladder of planetary movement, sometimes progressions and sometimes transit—all of which are part of the cycles we were born into.This class is about putting order into these stages of growth and personal development, and how to best take advantage of the inevitable chain reaction.

New Zealand Astrology Conference: Making of the One Thing
December 7 to 9, 2018

Auckland AFI and ASNZ will host this not-for-profit event, at Bella Rakha, a beautiful 30 acre Retreat Centre in expansive green Oratia, near Auckland’s West Coast. This offers comfortable accommodation for delegates and travellers, plus the potential to commute for those in Auckland.

Why a conference?
· A chance to gather the New Zealand and Australian astrology clans into one place, to share ideas, network, extend intellectual horizons.
· An opportunity to attract some of the wider astrological world to our shores.
· It is over 20 years since an international astrology conference was held here – it’s time!
· Astrology is at a very exciting point in its history, and this event celebrates that, also demonstrating why this is so.

Our arrival night, December 7, 2018, hosts a very special Sagittarius New Moon conjoined Jupiter. The perfect symbol for learning, conviviality, and the quest for knowledge. Timely indeed, with the Opening Ceremony at exact New Moon…
 
Theme: Making of the One Thing: Astrology, where imagination and intellect meet.
Inspired by that astrological classic, the Emerald Tablet: As it is above, so it is below. And as it is below, so it is above…for the making of the One Thing. The One Thing could be paraphrased as the Uniting Principle, The All, the X factor…the unnameable. What this conference can do is explore those margins where the magic and the logic of astrology meet. Traditional astrology, modern astrology, and even mundane astrology, all exist on that margin. Let’s celebrate this.

Are you interested in presenting a paper? If so, please consider topics that come from the wide variety of astrological domains, which demonstrate the interface of the magical and the logical ways of thinking, “for the making of the One Thing.”
Are you interested in attending this event?  A show of genuine interest would be much appreciated as we are currently immersed in the birthing process of this conference. We aim to have a few options for affordability.
We also need you to wish us well…please email us sharing ideas, comments, questions.

Christine Broadbent and Kath Tutill are co-conveners, Colleen Coffey is the treasurer, part of a team of eight people willing to give the time to make this wonderful event happen. If you feel you too would like to help, let us know. Many thanks!
