David Hamblin,  Harmonics in Practice

This workshop will be concerned with demonstrating the practical value of harmonics in interpreting the birth chart.  Examples will be taken from the charts of famous people, and there will also be an opportunity for workshop attendees to look at the harmonic aspects in their own charts and to discuss their significance.


Bio: David Hamblin is a former Chairman of the Astrological Association of Great Britain, and is the author of Harmonic Charts (1983) and of The Spirit of Numbers, a New Exploration of Harmonic Astrology (2011).  His new book, Harmonic Astrology in Practice, will be published early in 2019.

Harmonic astrology enables a far more detailed understanding of the relationship between planets in the birth chart.  Whereas conventional astrology deals only with aspects that are multiples of 2 and 3 (squares, trines, sextiles etc), harmonic astrology looks also at quintiles (5), septiles (7), and all the numbers up to 32.

Robert Hand,  Astrology and the Soul in Medieval Astrology

Contrary to widespread belief, Medieval astrology did have methods for doing psychological analysis. Although different from modern ones, they are based on a sophisticated model of the soul.  Instead of deriving psychological types from the signs, it was done according to planets. These methods are no longer in modern usage, but they are documented in later astrological writings.  This is an updated, in-depth workshop exploring these methods.  It expands on a popular lecture that Rob gave at A.S.P. 12 years ago.  Charts of selected participants will be examined -- please bring your chart.

Bruce Scofield,  Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions Past and Present


The movements of Jupiter and Saturn relative to each other have long been used in astrology as a dynamic grid against which historical trends are compared and analyzed. The conjunctions and oppositions in particular show strong correlations with economic trends that impact political events. Charts calculated for the precise times of Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions provide a methodology for evaluating global trends for the 20-year time period between them. In this lecture Bruce will first present an overview of the astronomy and traditional applications of astrological information derived from the synodic cycle of the two largest planets in the solar system. This will be followed by a detailed analysis of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions of 2000 and 2020 using traditional and Uranian astrology. Correlations to historical trends in the United States will be noted and interpreted and some forecasts for the decade beginning in 2020 will be made.
