2020 Year Ahead Workshop

Start 2020 armed with all the astrological know-how you can cram into a one-day workshop. With some momentous astrology right at the start of 2020, you’ll want to start your year armed with the best information and insight.

So this year we're holding our ever popular annual Year Ahead workshop on the very first Saturday in January.

We’re very excited that journalist and astrologer Neil Spencer, Observer columnist and author of True As The Stars Above, Adventures in Modern Astrology will be joining Israel Ajose and Christina Rodenbeck, our regular speakers, to present a one-day workshop looking at the year ahead.

Israel Ajose is one of the leading lights in London’s Astrological Lodge with a thriving private practice. He’s become a fixture in our annual calendar since he first started presenting these Year Ahead workshops a few years ago, helping us to start our year in an enthusiastic and optimistic mood.

We’re proud to count Christina Rodenbeck as one of our own. Many of you will probably be familiar with her work at The Oxford Astrologer as well as from our workshops. As usual she’ll be organising the content of the day — and we have high expectations!

Gods of War – Reclaiming the Mars Warrior with John Green

23rd November 2019
Drive, will, aggression, masculinity; these words often have negative connotations in our modern world. Mars is in crisis right now as we struggle with criminality, patriarchy and high rates of male suicide. The warrior has been demoted to a safe fictional character or demonised in war, gang violence or as the sexual predator. Have we forgotten how to honour him?

In this re-evaluation of Mars, our driving force in life, we will look at why Mars is so important to every one of us and the terrible problems he can cause in life if we try and ignore him. How can we restore him to a noble figure? Join John Green in reclaiming this important god in all his forms throughout our charts. Please bring your chart data and full battle armour. Tickets are on sale on Eventbrite.

John Green D.Psych.Astrol has been an astrologer for over 25 years. He is the director of the Mercury Internet School of Psychological Astrology (MISPA) which offers a diploma course in psychological astrology. He also teaches for the CPA (Centre for Psychological Astrology). He is the author of the synastry book Do You Love Me? The Astrology of Relationships and was the editor of the Astrological Journal from 2008-13.

Love: Profane and Sacred with Priscilla Costello

1st June 2019
Sutro Room, Trinity College Oxford 10am-5pm

Come and explore the mystery of human relationship - to oneself, to others, and to the Divine, in a full day with Priscilla Costello, an astrologer from North America. We are delighted to be able to welcome her to Oxford on a rare visit to the UK.

An extremely useful astrological technique for revealing the dynamics of our interactions with others. Given the different levels of human beings, how can we better achieve harmony with each other? Some sample charts will offer suggestions for analysis and interpretation.

Commonly associated with confusion and delusion, can we discover more positive aspects of Neptune, as in an attunement with nature, gifts of creativity and heightened intuition, and a profound love of the Divine? After looking at the astrological world view, we will explore the journey of the soul into incarnation and the finding of a spiritual path.

Astrology, the Soul and the Water Houses with Clare Martin

27th April 2019 at Trinity College, Oxford

In this seminar we will explore the water houses as realms of the soul. It was Jung’s lifelong task to rescue the soul from the obscurity and neglect into which it had fallen in our culture, and his Red Book demonstrates that the influence of the soul is as relevant and powerful as ever.

Planets in the water houses and their planetary rulers describe the nature of our personal, ancestral and collective inheritance. They describe our psychic vocation, where and how we are affected by the residues of the past, find ourselves blamed and scapegoated, or become catalysts for change. The water houses also describe our sense of being deeply connected to, and supported by, the eternal flow of life.

Early bird tickets at £45 available until 13th April, £55 full price.

The Goddess Weekend

Hittite goddess 13th-14th century BC

September 29-30, 2018
Trinity College, Oxford

We are thrilled to be hosting a weekend devoted to the asteroid goddesses -- Juno, Ceres, Pallas and Vesta. And we are even more thrilled that we have some veritable astrological Olympians to help guide us through the labyrinth of myth and herstory; truth, lies; illusion and actuality.

Juno -- queen, wife, mother, protector.
Ceres -- goddess of the corn, mother of girls, traveller, rescuer.
Pallas -- warrior, thinker, weaver, wise woman
Vesta -- domestic goddess, keeper of the eternal flame

Lynn Bell is one of our greatest living astrologers, with a mind for myth and an eye for the archetypal manifesting in reality. This year she gave the Carter Memorial Lecture at the Astrological Association (again!). She's been to Oxford several times before, but we keep inviting her back, because the contents of her mind need to be shared and disseminated.

Lynn has made special studies of Juno and Vesta -- the Queen and the Priestess, public and private goddesses.

Faye Blake-Cossar, of the Amsterdam School of Astrology, is probably the leading expert on astrological Ceres. She has been tracking the effects of Ceres since 2006, when the asteroid was recognised by astronomers as a minor planet as important as Pluto. Faye has studied in-depth the effects of Ceres transits in the mundane world and in the lives of clients. To read more about Faye, click here.

Like a thought turned into action, Pallas Athena was born from the skull of the Lord of the Olympians, Zeus himself. She is a wise counsellor, a steady voice in the storm, a call to action, a conscience -- wisdom. Christina Rodenbeck, who writes the Oxford Astrologer, will describe how Pallas works for the individual and the collective. She's shown that Pallas is especially important for astrologers.

To read more about her, click here.

We're planning a short meet and greet on Friday, September 28, and perhaps a dinner on Saturday. We will be able to offer one day only if that's more convenient for you.

We will be provide a list of accommodation. There is some available at Trinity College, but you may need to look elsewhere too. Let us know if we can help -- theoxfordastrologygroup @
