    Topic: Synastry - The Astrology of Intimacy

    No one exists without relationships of some sort. Humans are an inter-dependent species. Even a hermit in a cave probably has a teacher. She or he certainly had a mother. Committed monogamous bonds are one form of relationship, perhaps the most ultimately transformative. But then there is the dance that single folks do, and the life-changing "encounters" that unfold in almost everyone's life from time to time. Right at the heart of the matter are those astonishing moments when souls touch and our faith in the Eternal Mysteries becomes as palpable as the force of gravity.

    What light can astrology shed on these precious connections? Can it help us sort out lasting truth from the hormonal fog? In this workshop, we honor the fact that there are many good paths available, each of which can serve a soul-purpose. We will celebrate friendship, that human masterpiece. We’ll respect sexual diversity. We will rejoice in the fact that humanity is moving beyond narrow definitions of marriage. We will celebrate everything except exploitation.

    Technically, the seminar will explore intimacy from three perspectives. First, the intimate message of the individual birthchart. Second, how charts interact through interaspects. And third, the composite chart. The language of the workshop is psychological. The background is unabashedly metaphysical – reincarnational language is used where appropriate, and techniques for seeing the prior-life dynamics of the couple are analyzed. Overshadowing everything is a core commitment to extolling and supporting the power of human freedom, imagination and creativity to shape our responses to the intimate questions the planets ask.

    Cost: $500 includes full lunch and breakfast snacks all four days and dinner celebration Saturday night.

    Workshop Times: 9:00-5:00pm all four days.

    Astrology Apprenticeship Program
    June 22-25, 2017

    Topic: The Moon Workshop

    This program counts towards certification through Steven's astrology apprenticeship program.

    To follow the Moon down into our hearts is a journey into that second reality we all inhabit: the interior psychic world. Commonly, astrologers teach us not to expect “rationality” from the Moon, and yet in actuality the lunar realm does have its own patterns and laws which are ultimately as valid and reliable as the outward “Solar” laws governing gravity, the stock market, and traffic lights. Going further, in our daily waking lives, the Moon is always there, coloring our interpretations of what we call “reality.” And in sleep, we surrender utterly to it. Thus all human beings actually spend more of the hours of their lives navigating the lunar world than the solar one. Yet our culture systematically de-values, ignores, and trivializes the Moon. Why? The clues to this riddle unfold against a shifting backdrop of epochal changes in our cultural relationship to what we were taught to call “the Feminine,” forgetting that men have Moons too!

    One of the experiences we have in the lunar realm is that our souls collide with ghosts from our past—and that includes the ghosts of our collective history as well as those of our individual pasts, both developmentally and karmically. Please join us as we reclaim the half of the sky and the half of ourselves that we have all been trained to forget.

    Taking care of the Moon in ourselves is the same as taking care of our hearts and souls. It is the secret of happiness. Unraveling its messages requires that we release ourselves from the strictures of reason and instead learn its mysterious, nonlinear, trans-logical language. “Being in touch with our feelings” is only one part of it. Creativity, dreams, healing and being healed—these are all lunar topics too, as are intuition, family, and “the Mother,” both literally and archetypally.

    In this workshop, we will deeply and technically consider the Moon from the common perspective of signs, houses, and aspects. Based on Steven’s work, “The Book of the Moon,” we will explore in depth the mostly forgotten mystery of the Moon’s eight phases. We will do this both in the context of the natal chart and in terms of progressions. We will introduce major, usually overlooked pieces of the astrological puzzle, as well as the natal Moon’s speed, its declination, and the so-called “Out of Bounds” Moon, which can exist natally or by progression.

    WHEN: Thursday–Sunday, June 22–25, 2017
    9 a.m. – 5 p.m. each day

    COST: $550

    Topic: Framing the Astrological Picture: Mastering the Four Angles

    Join Steven at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY for a special weekend astrology workshop.

    Ascendant, Midheaven, Descendant and Astrological Nadir are the "Four Angles" of the chart.. Metaphysical astrologers of days gone by often thought of them as the "cross of matter upon which spirit was crucified.” Our view will be cheerier! But we do understand that the successful manifestation of one's soul intentions is critically dependent upon a strong, conscious response to these four elemental points. Our first step is to ask a question about the "anthropology" of modern astrological practice: why is there so much emphasis on the Ascendant and the Midheaven, with so little on the 4th and the 7th cusps? The valuing of "style" and "career" over one’s inner life and human relationship is the cultural error here. We astrologers must not be swept into it. In this class, we explore an integrated, inter-dependent view of these four critical functions.

    COST: $295

    This workshop is worth 2 Credits towards Level 1 certification.

    Topic: Aspects Intensive

    Aspects are astrological bedrock. But like so much else in the system we’ve inherited, there is a need to find new language for them. What are the words that speak truly and effectively to humans in an age of psychology, quantum mechanics, and revolution in almost every category of experience? Surely it goes beyond Saturn squares your Venus so you will be unlucky in love.

    Aspects are one way that we weave the chart together. In this meeting of the Apprenticeship Program, we will concentrate on deepening our skills in understanding them. These critical geometric relationships help us remember that, while you have many planets, you have only one head between your ears. In this intensive, our guiding principle will be that all aspects are about integration. With this idea in view, we will attempt to replace the outdated notion of “good” and “bad” aspects with a more sophisticated perspective.

    Fellowships of the SpiritAfter an introduction of the theory for the weekend, we will spend the rest of our time pulling the charts of class members out of our "sorting hat" and diving into the roll-up-your-sleeves world of actual, practical chart interpretation.

    Steven Forrest Progressions Workshop

    Astrological Timing: Progressions

    In this weekend workshop Steven will introduce the theory and practice of progressions.

    A couple have a baby. They ask me to make some predictions. I say, “For the next 18 years or so, she will get taller each day. Then she will begin to get rounder. Around age 30, we will begin to see some gray in her hair.” We may laugh, but those are very reliable statements. Those physical processes are hard-wired into our organisms, like a biological clock. Progressions work exactly the same way. They are the DNA of your birthchart, predicting the timing of developmental themes – and sometimes of developmental crises. Unlike transits, which we all share – Pluto is Capricorn for everybody - the progressions are purely personal, unique and internal. But, just like transits, in practice they are simply points that move around the chart, forming aspects, triggering development and precipitating biographical events.
