Workshops 2020-2021

As part of our educational efforts, we offer full-day workshops with the opportunity to delve into a topic, roll up your sleeves and get hands-on experience. When meeting in person, we typically take a nice lunch break together at a nearby restaurant (what you select is at your own expense), giving us time to get to know one another and exchange ideas stimulated by the workshop.

Linea Van Horn: Aspect Patterns


Sunday, November 22, 2020. 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM, via Zoom
Eileen McCabe

The Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius is a twenty-year cycle that will impact both the individual and the collective. Dane Rudhyar called Jupiter and Saturn the planets of socialization, saying that these two planets contribute to how we give our existence a sense of meaning and life purpose. While Jupiter symbolizes our potential for social expansion, Saturn shows how we define and crystallize our identity in the outer world. How will this special conjunction change your life and what will be your own personal contribution to the evolution of consciousness? In this workshop, we will explore the overall meaning of a Jupiter/Saturn conjunction, the significance of Saturn and Jupiter moving into an Air sign, and how the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius will affect all the signs of the zodiac. This workshop will be interactive with the attendees and Eileen, so bring your charts and questions!

Forecasting Techniques that Really Work

Many of us have favorite techniques for forecasting that work better than others. In this workshop, Ronnie will share those that really work, culled from more than 30 years as a practicing astrologer, using sample celebrity and client charts to illustrate these techniques. These include, but are not limited to, eclipses, retrograde stations, transits and Indian planetary periods (dashas). These techniques will work with Eastern and Western charts and are suitable for all levels of expertise. That is what makes them so valuable.

Ronnie Gale Dreyer is an internationally known consultant, lecturer, and teacher based in NYC. She has lectured throughout the world, conducts ongoing classes/webinars, and wrote numerous books including Venus, Healing Signs, and Vedic Astrology.  Ronnie co-authored, with Nick Campion, a chapter in Religious Transformation in Modern Asia.

The Rhythms of Your Life: Honing Your Forecasting Skills

As astrologers, rather than using forecasting tools to make firm predictions, we do our best work when we articulate the processes that can take place under various transits, progressions or directions. In doing so, students and clients recognize the “season” they’re in and become aware of personal celestial cycles. This talk will offer several tools, including “Define and Connect,” to simplify the process of interpretation.

Solar Arc Directions: An Interactive Session

Frank will demonstrate how Solar Arcs are among the most powerful and reliable of astrological measurements. He’ll show how to pinpoint landmark periods in your life. Then, he’ll work with some horoscopes from the audience to spot, define and articulate a range of Directions that will (hopefully!) amaze everyone with their simplicity and accuracy. If you want to enhance your forecasting skills, this is the talk to come to! Solar Arcs provide information about past and present circumstances, as well as future possibilities. Starting a consultation with Solar Arcs can help to break the ice and gain a client’s trust. Join Frank to learn how to use and decode a remarkable tool that reminds us that every moment is fascinating and full of meaning.
