Topic: The Water Family - Healers and Regenerators
***SOLD OUT WITH WAITLIST***
Become an astrologer and work towards certification with Steven Forrest in this unique and intimate astrology intensive program. All levels welcome*.
Steven will guide students into an in-depth understanding of his unique approach to Evolutionary Astrology. Students spend 4 days immersed in study, with lecture and step-by-step instruction in methodology with birth charts drawn from the pool of attendees.
In the previous three programs, we explored the elemental families of Fire, Air and Earth. In the upcoming November program, we complete our in-depth tour of the astrological Elements. This time, we encounter the far more subtle and subjective mysteries of the Water Family. We begin our exploration with Cancer, the Moon, and the Fourth House, continue onward through Scorpio, the Eighth House and their dual (and dueling!) Rulers, Pluto and Mars. Finally the Water processes culminate with Pisces and the Twelfth House, along with the planets Jupiter and Neptune which rule them.
To say that Water represents “feelings” is accurate in so far as it goes. All the Water energies are concerned with emotions. But the realm of Water is far more complex. Raw, direct contact with the inner realm occurs in the domain of Cancer. But then there are those slippery feelings and drives we hesitate to own and have difficulty seeing clearly and honestly. Staying real with those kinds of processes brings us into the terrain of the Scorpion. And topping it off, we all have “intimations of immortality” -- psychic and spiritual impressions that remind us that the boundaries of “the inner world” extend far, far beyond the walls of a conventional psychotherapist’s office.
Life is hard sometimes. How do we endure it? How do we bounce back from hurt and adversity? In the face of our wounding experiences, how do we restore our faith, our ability to love and to trust? A right relationship with the Water realm is the answer. It is the essence of the process of self-healing and self-regeneration.
As with the previous Fire, Air and Earth programs, this teaching will bring us to a sophisticated understanding of a piece of astrological bedrock. We will come to know the Water Family, both in its natal manifestations and in terms of transits, progressions, and solar arcs.
In our usual custom, the first half of the seminar revolves around Steven presenting Water theory, while the second half involves the practical application of it to the analysis of randomly-drawn charts of class members.
Cost: $500 includes full lunch and breakfast snacks all four days and dinner celebration Saturday night.
