Medical Astrology- Introduction to DecumbitureA Talk by Marcos Patchett. Traditional medical astrology enables the astrologer to predict and/or retrospectively analyse medical problems and treatment. With careful consideration it's possible to identify the source, course and nature of any problems and potentials, whether they lie with the medical practitioner, the treatment, or the patient themselves. Medical herbalist Marcos Patchett illustrates some time honoured iatromathematical (medical astrology) techniques with consultation charts and case histories from his own client files. At The Cornerstone Community Centre, Hove BN3 2FL. Arrive 7.30pm for a 7.45pm start until 9.15pm. All are welcome. You can pay cash on the door. Cost 8 and 5 for members.

Tough Love: The Meaning of Saturn Transits With Saturn entering its home sign of Capricorn just before the Winter Solstice, astrologer Richard Swatton makes a welcome return to Aquarius Severn to present an evening engaging with this down-to-earth planet as it transits through our birth charts. Every person defines who he is by separating himself out from others and "the world" about him - a process astrologically shown by transiting Saturn. Taken to an extreme Saturn brings isolation and loneliness; without enough Saturn we become prey to co-dependency, self doubt and intimidation. If we accept him, then Saturn teaches us self-sufficiency and personal autonomy; if we deny him, we are destined to live in fear. Saturn will be conjunct Mercury on Thursday, so a good time to be mulling over Saturn. A meeting of the Aquarius Severn Astrology group. Location: Cheltenham

Moon Cycles: Seasons, Light & Fire A talk by Anna Estaroth. This lecture will appeal to anyone who likes fire. If the 2017 American eclipse gave you an appetite for understanding the dance of the Sun, Moon and Earth this talk feeds your curiosity by considering the Great Lunar cycle. We all know the Moon waxes and wanes every month but few realise the large waxing and waning cycle lasts nineteen years, influencing generations. Based on her research among ancient Scottish monuments, Anna explores the Great Moon cycles and how they played a role in traditional bonfires. Find out whether you were born during a great wax or a great wane. At the The Basement, The Arthur Conan Doyle Centre, 25 Palmerston Place, Edinburgh. EH12 5AP. Entry Fee: £3.00 members, £5.00 non-members. Scottish Astrological Association
