As Above, So Below with Dragana Van de moortel-Ilić (2 Sessions)
How does astrology illuminate history and our own lives? The ancients attributed specific characteristics to the planets and stars, which they embodied in their art, mythologies and belief systems. Technically they became advanced astronomers and were able to read the patterns in the sky – abilities which blossomed in ancient Mesopotamia and Sumeria, where the roots of modern astrology were established. Today astrologers are still refining the Science and Art of Astrology, perfecting their ability to delineate the Above in the Below, providing valuable insights into the world and into our personal lives, often explaining them in the context of events in history. These two sessions will concentrate on the outer planets, Saturn and Neptune, and their influence on current world events.
NB: The sessions are specifically designed for non-astrologers, using limited astrological terminology.

Saturn in Aquarius: What does freedom mean to you?
The 2020 pandemic generated fear, but it also created the chance for something new. Technology and online interaction came into their own, drawing us together by our similar interests. Saturn entered Aquarius in March and December 2020 and will transit this sign until 2023. It returns to the same position every 29 years, so we will review the world events over the last 100 years when Saturn was in Aquarius, tracing the common patterns and reflecting on how we can benefit both as individuals and as a society from such a step-change.

Neptune and Jupiter in Pisces: Can we fulfil our dreams?
In 2021 Neptune and Jupiter will be in Pisces from May to July, and twice again in 2022. What can we expect from this transition? Historically, most periods when Neptune has transited Pisces have been about the nature of beliefs, the creation or refinement of belief systems, giving us an opportunity to look at the world through a less materialistic lens.
