A New Astrological Revolution for Kepler Join us online for a Key Concept Lecture from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. Johannes Kepler is one of the most influential figures in western astrology. He advised some of the most powerful people in early 17th century Europe, worked towards a reform of astrology and emphasised aspects in horoscope interpretation. The horoscopes have been obtained from the archives in St Petersburg, and have never before been available. In this online Key Concept Lecture we will look at how Kepler actually did astrology. The cost of this lecture is £30 and the income from the lecture will support the publication costs. By signing up you will support a unique scholarly project in the history of astrology.

Monday Night Talks at the Astrological Lodge of London 7:00pm: Long lost medieval techniques (1) with Chris Mitchell. Horary astrology seems like a clear-cut case of answering a client's question - but medieval astrologers liked to know the REAL reason the client was asking the question. This talk will look at some of these long-lost techniques, with a handy worked example from a 12th-century astrologer. Can you make use of these techniques in your own practice? Followed by 8:30pm: Long lost astrological techniques (2) with Chris Mitchell. Now that we've looked at the techniques, let's put them into practice. Also: Chart discussion.
