Oh those neglected asteroids, floating around in the Kuiper belt wastes, ignored and even derided (as a bunch of rubble behind Mars).
Well, no longer. The Oxford Astrology Group will be devoting an entire weekend to Ceres, Pallas, Vesta and Juno this September (29-30) — and you are cordially invited.
I’m very excited to be participating. I feel privileged — and a little awed — to be working with Lynn Bell and Faye Cossar, two of the smartest astrologers teaching today. If you have never heard either of them speak, you are in for a treat (and some serious brain gym). If you’re already an aficionado, well then, buy your ticket now!
Lynn has been making a special study of Juno, the protectress, and Vesta, goddess of the hearth, for several years now. Note that on the day, Vesta conjuncts Saturn and Juno conjuncts the Moon in Taurus. Interesting.
Faye is — as far as I know — the expert on astrological Ceres. She has focused just on this asteroid for more than a decade, tracking her effects both personal and collective. Ceres is, of course, as big as Pluto — and just as important, so we’ll be devoting quite a bit of the weekend to her. She’s in a Mercury-Sun sandwich on that weekend.
Finally, Pallas and I will be picking up the slack — and perhaps weaving the whole show together! Since she’ll be in Virgo, there will be quite a detailed stitching together of ideas, themes and future strategies.
BRING YOUR OWN CHART! We will certainly make time to do some astrology slam readings.
Tickets are available here. Earlybird prices until September 1 (I think).
If you need help with accommodation, try Trinity College first. They usually have a few rooms at this time of year (+44 1865 279900) and Conference Oxford has a list of college rooms available that you can book on-line. These are in some ways the most fun option since they put you right in the heart of the university.
