jupiter in sagittarius

Jupiter in Sagittarius

I had this great idea for Jupiter in Sagittarius. Publishing a sample chapter of “Growing Pains”. I mean, after all, Jupiter is associated with publishing. I thought this would be a very straightforward cut and paste job. After checking it was OK with my publisher (The Wessex Astrologer), I realised it might not be so easy. Just for starters, those pesky ingress dates (the ones that just about drove us insane in the second edit), could not be simply cut and pasted. So I had to do a screen grab and hope it is clear enough to be read. And […]

Sun in Scorpio

A Very Scorpio Tale: Psycho

Sun in Scorpio: a time to examine the mysteries of life or a time to crack out the sexual innuendos and toilet humour? Joking about Scorpio probably stems from the need to defend oneself against such dark and heavy themes. Not even the master of horror himself, Alfred Hitchcock, was immune to a bit of toilet humour. To many horror movie fans, Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho is a film that stands out in their minds. The scene when poor Janet Leigh is innocently taking a shower only to be stabbed to death by an “old lady” whilst screeching music plays is surely one […]

Nakshatras

A Nakshatra Story

Nakshatras. I mean, what on earth does that mean? When I was doing the FAS diploma, I forbade myself from taking any other astrology course until I finished the diploma. It nearly drove me crazy but since completing the course a couple of years ago, I’ve done a course on Hellenistic astrology and took Deb Houlding’s horary and electional courses. Still thirsty, I’ve been eyeing up Vedic astrology. I don’t think we live in a world where astrologers can afford to be separated. We need to understand each other in order to endure the slings and arrows of outrageous scepticism. […]

SOTA

Astrology Conference Review: SOTA

The SOTA (State of the Art Astrology) conference takes place in the autumn in Buffalo (or the vicinity) each year. It is described as a small, friendly conference. SOTA hosts popular speakers lecturing about hot topics. The wonderful Donna Van Toen is the organiser. I often say SOTA is the reason I left a full time teaching position! I couldn’t get time off from school so I could lecture at SOTA so I decided to take an extended sabbatical. (It didn’t really last all that long before I was back in the classroom). I’ve never regretted that decision. SOTA also […]

Astrology Restored

Astrology Conference Reviews: Cape Town

“Astrology Restored: Bridging Epochs and Traditions” was the name of the conference held in Cape Town South Africa from 6-11th November 2015. Set in Shamballah Tea House, a beautiful farm across from the Cape Point Nature Reserve, the conference was 100% adventure. Astrology Restored was organised by Ana Carrapichano and Richard Fidler with advice and assistance from Michelle Gould and Nancy Massing, Rod Suskin and many other brilliant Cape Town astrologers. The perfect team to bring a dream to life. The story behind the conference is an interesting one. The intention to organise a conference was solemnly set during the […]

UAC Chicago Alex Trenoweth

Astrology Conference Review: UAC Chicago

UAC Chicago in 2018 was nothing short of amazing. How many astrologers can fit on a boat? (The answer is 750). And how many astrologers can you fit into a hotel? I think the final count on astrologers in a hotel was 1500. To be honest, I don’t mind too much. This was a highly successful conference for me (as well as many others) and it gets my “Jupiter Award” for bringing together so many people, for providing so many opportunities and for getting me to church on a Sunday morning with a hangover. Expensive? Yes but I (eventually) recovered […]

Alex Trenoweth in Perugia

Astrology Conference Review: Perugia Italy

If you ever think to yourself “Gosh, I’d really like to go to an astrology conference that is steeped in history” then Perugia, Italy is your place. The Associazione Cultural Jayavidya holds its annual conference in June every year. It’s a one day conference, leaving you with plenty of time to explore magnificent and near by Rome. Or to just spend time exploring Perugia. Or to just soak in the culture and eat glorious food. Aside from astrology, Perugia is a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in a different culture. Beautifully organised by Nunzia Meskalila Coppola, this is a conference I […]

astrology and education: transition edition

Back to School with Astrology: Transition Edition

Pupils born between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2007 will be gearing up to start secondary school in September. The transition process from primary school to secondary school is exciting but can be a worry for teachers, parents and especially the pupils. Welcome to Back to School: Transition Edition! I’m a real teacher. I’m also a real astrologer. And this is my real advice for parents and teachers who are preparing their children/pupils for the first year of secondary school. That Transition Gap Studies show that pupils who are new to secondary school experience a dip in academic performance. […]

ISAR 2016

Astrology Conference Review: ISAR 2016

Been going to the same Astrology Conferences year after year? It’s time to get out of the same old routine! ISAR 2016 wins my prize for “Best Connections” and it’s a conference well worth attending if you are just starting to branch out as an astrologer. Best Connections, ISAR I first attended ISAR’s biennial conference in 2014. It marked the very start of my career as an international astrologer (I had spoken at UAC in 2008 but was working full time as a teacher so wan’t able to travel much). My book “Growing Pains” had come out the year before […]
