We are excited to offer you a wonderfully diverse schedule of lectures, from classical to psychological, evolutionary and even a bit of magic – all within the theme of Wealth and Wellbeing! We offer you a schedule of speakers that provides for a ride that will challenge you, broaden your horizons and send you exploring new ideas and concepts.
With only one stream of lectures, the conference schedule enables you to be exposed to methods and interpretations that may not fit your usual mindset. Often talks which you might not have attended had the schedule allowed, turn out to be pure gold, providing a flash of understanding that you hadn’t expected! And if you find that five lectures in one day is too much, you can take time out, because with 30 days to watch the recordings, you won’t miss out on anything!

Lecture Title: Rewilding Astrology: The Zodiac as a Mandala for Shapeshifting
A deep ecological perspective asks us to approach the many creatures in the sky of our birth and their many relationships with wonder, rather than agenda.

Lecture Title: Living as an astrologer
Astrology is a lifestyle. It may begin as a hobby or a curiosity, but for those of us that stay with astrology, it becomes a lifestyle. There are, however, many different forms of astrology and different ways that astrologers use the heavens. The bottom line is that astrologers choose to bring purpose to their lives by living in a dialogue with the heavens. Are we thus dictated by fate or are we living in rapport with the natural world?
