Presenter:         Nancy Gill

Topic: The Mystery of the Moon

Planets in aspect to your Moon can have a strong or subtle impact on the Moon’s energy and how you feel. Have you ever read a statement about your Moon sign and thought, “That’s not me.” This session will shine a light on the mystery and explain why this happens. In this session we will be looking at what to expect when each of the planetary energies combine with that of the receptive Moon. Bring your charts and come create a new picture of yourself as seen through Luna’s lens.

Sunday, November 24, 2019, 1:00 pm-4:00pm

Presenter:          Shannon Rae

Topic: Aspects: Cycles of Unfoldment 

The mathematical angles between celestial bodies at our birth provide insight into how two or more parts of our psyche provide support and challenge towards integration. As we naturally unfold through life the planets in the sky make their conjunctions, squares, oppositions and other aspects to points in our birth chart, mirroring the story of this cyclical process of becoming. Please bring along your charts so you can apply the ideas explored during the workshop to your own self-understanding!

In this workshop, we will explore our aptitudes and potential talents from our natal charts to put to the world.

Sunday, May 31, 2020

Location:            Online

Presenter:         VERONIKA ELIASOVA

Topic:    Your true “Mercurial” and “Venusian” nature: Are you a Mercury / Venus morning or evening star?

In this workshop, we will look more closely at two of our personal planets, Mercury and Venus. We will discuss the archetypal energies represented by them and add another layer to our understanding of our “Mercurial” and “Venusian” nature by looking at their cyclical relationship to the Sun.

Most of us are aware of how the “flavour” of these two personals changes with each zodiac sign, but did you know their expression further changes depending on where in their cycle they were located at the time of your birth?

Bring your natal chart and be prepared for a more intimate understanding of the workings of your mind and your feeling nature.

Bio:
Veronika’s drive to understand the complexities of the human psyche and the context within which each human being is born, shaped, and ultimately called upon to undertake the hero’s journey has led her to the study of psychology, sociology, astrology, past lives, and everything spiritual and obscure. Her readings in astrology always take her deeper down the rabbit hole and yield a wealth of information that shed light upon the enigma of the self and signal the way to personal transformation and unfoldment.

 

 

 

June Workshop

Sat and Sun, June 6th and 7th (9am-1pm: 3.5 hours each day)

Location: Online

Presenter: Kim Marie

Topic: Appreciating the Cycle of Phases and Aspects

One of the most challenging yet fulfilling components of Evolutionary Astrology is integrating a holistic understanding of phases and aspects. This underpinning creates the essence of chart interpretation, and reveals layers and repeating themes to the chart. Evolutionary Astrology has always employed the Cycle of Phases and Aspects to eliminate confusion and offer clarity on blending planetary archetypes, signs and houses. Core to this is the mantra that “every planet is in relationship to every other planet.” This exists through a phasal relationship first, and then perhaps a specific aspect. This webinar will look at the cycle of aspects from 0 to 360 degrees through the eight phases of the circle. Specific chart examples will be shown throughout.

Bio: Kim Marie is the Director of the Evolutionary Astrology Network. She has practiced Evolutionary Astrology for 35+ years and counsels an international clientele. Her background includes experience in alternative healing and environmental politics. Kim Marie is a Deep Memory Processing past-life regression therapist. She resides on a beautiful piece of paradise in the Black Hills of South Dakota with her husband LeRoy – Media Manager for EAN.

Past Meetings 2018-2019

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 Rae

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.

November:

Sunday, November 25, 2018, 1:00 pm-4:00pm

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.

Bio:

Douglas Staley has studied and practiced astrology for more than 40 years and is the founder and president of LIGHT (Learning Institute for Growth, Healing and Transformation).

January:

Sunday, January 27, 2018, 1:00 pm-4:00 pm

(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.”

Bio: 

Malcolm Wall is a writer, poet, speaker and self-described astrology enthusiast who lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba. His career has been the front lines of child welfare as well as having spent many years as a foster parent to high needs children. He has worked in the fields of addictions, mental health and crisis intervention. Wear Red, his first book of poetry was published in 2017. He has two adult children.

 

 

 

 

 

 

FEBRUARY 24, 2019: 1:00 PM-4:00 PM

PRESENTER:

SHELLY CHLAN

TITLE: RETROGRADE: WHAT DO YOU INTERNALIZE?

Have you ever wondered how retrograde planets influence your natal chart?

We will explore the phenomenon of retrograde motion.

You will learn what it is, how it affects the planets, and the energies of your chart.

Please make sure you have your natal chart with you as there will be time to explore what planets you may have retrograde in your chart.

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.

Bio:

Sharon was one of the original members of the Manitoba Association of Astrologers. She has been a professional astrologer for over 30 years in addition to a social work career. She has taught Astrology and given many workshops over the years.

She and her husband retired to the Yukon in 2009 where they moved into a cabin on the Takhini River outside of Whitehorse. In addition to Astrology, she spends her time hiking and canoeing, reading mysteries and making jewellery for the local Farmers Market.

While in the Yukon she completed Noel Tyl’s Masters Level Astrology Course with highest honours. She consults with clients by phone and once a year in person in Winnipeg.

 

 

April:

Sunday, April 28, 2019, 1:00 pm-4:00 pm

Presenter:

Julie C.

Title: The science and art of locational astrology

Have you been drawn to or experience unpleasantness with a different city/country when you travel or relocate there? Perhaps aside from a transit that you were experiencing at the time, there could be an influence of locational astrology. Are you curious where on earth you can emphasize specific planet(s) in your chart, aka power line(s)?

We will go over different approaches to examine locational astrology: Astro*Carto*Graphy, relocated chart, local space chart and synastry chart with the city/country. We will also discuss the influence of emphasizing different planets.

To get the most out of the meeting, please feel free to generate your relocation charts before the meeting (instructions).
