September:

Sunday, September 30, 2018: 1:00 pm-4:00 pm 

Presenter:

Dr. Marianne Johnson

Title:    Jung, Astrology and Archetypes

Astrology was very important—personally and professionally—to Dr. Carl Jung, and Jungian psychology has been and is very important to astrology.  Dr. Jung, with a Leo Sun and a Taurus Moon, was a Swiss psychiatrist known for his work on dreams, archetypes, individuation, and synchronicity.  This workshop will be in two parts:  a brief introduction to Jung’s work and key terms, and how he used astrology in his personal life and professional practice, followed by a consideration of zodiac signs as archetypal patterns, and Sun and Moon as psychological functions.

Recommended:  Know your Sun and Moon signs.

Bio:

Dr. Marianne Johnson is a psychologist in private practice.  She has long-standing interests in Jungian psychology (including training at the Jung Institute in Kusnacht, Switzerland) and in astrology.  Formative influences on her approach to astrology are Jeffrey Wolfe Green’s Evolutionary Astrology and Tibetan Buddhism reincarnation.  For this workshop, she will be drawing on the work.

 

 

 

October:

Sunday, October 28, 2018, 1:00 pm-4:00 pm

Presenter:

Shannon Jennissen

Title: Chiron: Weaving & Healing

Often expressed and misrepresented simply as the wound, we will explore how Chiron can be used alchemically to heal and be healed by others. Chiron orbits between the ultimate bastion of reality (Saturn) and the wild maverick who breaks free from traditional constraints (Uranus), between the visible and invisible, the inner and the outer.

In your natal birth chart Chiron’s position and aspects can point to how you grow through the deep integration of these ideas as you travel along the spiral towards wholeness.

Presenter:

Douglas Staley

Title:  Is Winnipeg a Spiritual Power Center?

Situated in the heart of the continent, Winnipeg is one of the most unique cities in the world,
yet largely unnoticed and unappreciated.  However, psychics and sensitives have long recognized the deeply spiritual qualities of our city.  In this multi-media presentation, we will examine some of the geographic, climate, astronomical, ecological, social and cultural evidence that contributes to the spiritual energy of Winnipeg.  We will also discuss the astrological chart of the incorporation of Winnipeg as a city on November 8, 1873.

(PLEASE NOTE: ONE TIME ONLY LOCATION CHANGE TO 1050 HENDERSON HWY/HENDERSON LIBRARY)

Presenter:

Malcolm Wall  

Title: Juno as an Indicator of Partnership

What type of person are you going to marry? What type of person did you marry? Our look at the asteroid Juno will provide some compelling clues to these questions. Juno in the horoscope gives a good indication of the kind of marriage partner that we need and will get. Not the partner we think we want (those are ruled by Venus and Mars), or the type we are generally attracted to (seventh house cusp) but the one we need and actually wind up with.

Juno in the natal chart, by sign, house and aspect, shows the nature of the partner you seek. It is reflected in what you seek to balance of your own nature in other areas of life. It’s not so much “You complete me” as it is “You bring out the issues in me that I must address in order to feel whole.”

March:

Sunday, March 31, 2019, 1:00 pm-4:00 pm

Presenter:

Sharon Wiseman

Title:

Preparing For a Consultation

Using chart examples, Sharon will show how she prepares for an Astrology session using the techniques she learned from her course with Noel Tyl, a well known Astrologer and author. She will demonstrate how she zeros in on the important natal themes and combines that with the themes of the current transits and solar arcs. From this a dialog begins with the client which cuts through to what is relevant now. This approach is powerful for both client and astrologer.
