About The Event
This workshop will be an investigation into the various ancient and modern astrological techniques that are available to us to help us to understand what will reward us and give us satisfaction in life. Our society tells us this has to be through work (‘I know I am born for some deep purpose. God, tell me my job title!’). Wisdom teaches a much broader view. We might need to work to survive, but our joy might be our family, or the violets we grown in the potting shed as a hobby. Astrology has an unparalleled toolkit for exploring these questions.
During the day we will move from more secular to the more sacred techniques. In detail we will look at:
• Money in the birth chart. Is your chart wealthy or poor as a church mouse? Is money important in the chart or merely a means to an end?
• Career, ambition and where you want to be in the world. What sort of work does the chart indicate you are pulled towards? Does your chart want to express itself in a mainstream or a non-mainstream way? What qualities will the world recognise in you?
• Paths of growth and expansion. What qualities do we bring with us to Earth School already developed, and what does the astrology suggest we want to develop this time around? What might be the activities that truly bring us joy? What is the path like? Is it easy or hazardous and difficult?
We will explore these themes interactively, using some well-known examples, and also the birth charts of workshop participants.
Who is the workshop for?
Anyone who wants to explore. No previous knowledge of astrology is required, although the content will be of interest to more experienced astrologers too, since as well as familiar modern techniques (mid heaven, lunar nodes etc), it will include several medieval astrological techniques for exploring vocation and life purpose, such as the part of fortune and part of spirit and the pre-birth lunation.
What is needed from participants?
Your birth details: exact time, place and date of birth. If you don’t know and can’t find out your birth time, though, don’t worry, there are plenty of ways round this issue. Please send birth details by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, please confirm that you are happy for your birth chart to be discussed during the workshop, or if you’d prefer to keep it private.
MATTHEW WYMAN is an experienced educator, astrologer, and essence practitioner who lives in Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom. He works at Keele University, and has received several institutional and national awards for his teaching activities. He has been a practicing astrologer since 2010, working with clients across Europe and the Americas and running several workshops and training programmes. Since he trained with Astro Logos, the astrology school run by Bernadette Brady and Darrelyn Gunzburg, he describes his approach to horoscope work as part modern, part ancient. Modern astrology works for in-depth exploration of psychological issues, but, he says, you can’t beat medieval astrology for accurate work on the outer world of money, status and power and the inner world of spirit. Both approaches help us to appreciate our strengths, become aware of and more accepting of the areas in which we struggle, and to make sense of what is happening to us in the present.
