Alan draws the connection between Sedna and the centaur, Pholus, because they both have a ‘space weathering’ process that turns the surface of each red, so they both have to do with growth and illumination. And he links it with Ceres, because they both likely have internal oceans, so they both speak of a nurturing process. And with Saturn, because their daily rate of spin is the same, so they have the same day to day practical perspective and both speak of limits.
Discover the evolutionary spiritual power of Sedna, the new esoteric outer limit of our solar system.
Alan Clay is a New Zealand astrologer, and an award winning film director and novelist.
For over 30 years he has conducted a deep research into people through his extensive work as a clown teacher.
For the past two years he has been researching a book on Sedna, which includes a comprehensive aspect analysis using all the new dwarf planets. Titled ‘Sedna Consciousness, the Soul’s Path of Destiny’, his book was launched this year at UAC in Chicago.

Fay’s investigation and subsequent findings led to the writing of her Astro*Synthesis Thesis. As part of her thesis, Fay explored the image of ‘mother’ in the birth chart, and whether it mirrored the relationship with both mothers. She also interviewed a cross section of adopted people and incorporated their personal stories, significant planetary findings, and of course the Moon in their charts.
Fay’s presentation covers all of this and more.
Astrology has been part of Fay Reynolds’ life for over 30 years. Her passion has always been working with people. In astrology consultations, Fay allows the chart’s imagery to gently guide the direction of a client’s self exploration, knowledge and reflection towards healing and growth.
Fay is a qualified Astrologer with an Advanced Diploma of Applied Astrology (Astro*Synthesis), and is a member of the APA and the FAA.
Fay lives in Fawkner.

The partial solar eclipse on 13 July 2018 was at 20⁰ 41’ Cancer, conjunct the fixed star Castor. It was followed by a total lunar eclipse on July 28 at 4⁰ 44’ Aquarius, and another partial solar eclipse two weeks later, on August 11, this time at 18⁰ 41’ Leo. Peter enlightens us with his take on them all.

The 36 Year Hebrew Cycle starts on the 21st of March of each year, and Pisces, the 12th sign of the zodiac, marks the end of the cycle. As recently as 2016, the end of a Sun in Pisces cycle occurred (1981-2016). Therefore, a completely new cycle began on the 21st March 2017. This new cycle is Aries-ruled-by-Saturn for 36 years, and the last time Saturn in Aries ruled the 36 Year period was in 1008 BCE, 3024 years ago. Note that 7 planets x 12 signs x 36 Years (Decans) = 3024 years = the completion of the whole cycle!

Solar Returns were one of the techniques that classical astrologers used to predict future events, but their methodology differed somewhat from modern methods. Almost every astrologer has tried to use solar returns. However, there have been so many methods proposed, that the beginner in this technique is often bewildered about how to get the core meanings out of this system.

Mercury is the inner planet that acts like an outer planet, and nobody notices. He has always been a tricky and somewhat mysterious member of our cosmic family. Mercury was the original maverick of the chart, going his own way and abiding by his own rules. His close position to the Sun, his unique cycle, his ever-changing speed and direction makes Mercury elusive and hard to keep up with. This fascinating and enigmatic little planet is often overlooked.

One of astrology’s great offerings is reflecting on time through diverse techniques. Each cycle, no matter its length, has a beginning, a middle and an end, renewing itself in the birth of another cycle. There is a past and a future in every present moment marked on the path of every celestial orbit.
Time is also considered from the perspective of the unconscious and how it shapes the way we foresee transits and transitions. As astrologers, do we consider the mysteries of time enough? Have we sufficiently contemplated the intricacies of time to hold our own views on prediction, predictive techniques, ageing and recurrence?
