The Mystique of Neptune with Richard Swatton. Astrologer and psychotherapist Richard Swatton delves into the mysterious realm of Neptune. How can we make the most of Neptune in our birth charts, particularly if it is prominent or in aspect to our personal planets? What should we expect from Neptune transits?

Looking Backwards & Forwards - Predictive Astrology Workshop with Joanna Watters & Elisabeth Brooke. Your horoscope, or natal chart, is a photograph of the heavens, a snapshot taken on the date of your birth, from your place of birth and at the exact time of your birth. It is unique to you and cannot be replicated. As above, so below. Your natal chart reflects not only your nature but also your life events. We find transits by comparing the moving picture - where the planets are at any given time - to the frozen moment of the natal chart. This constitutes a large part of how astrologers make their predictions.Learn about the cycles and symbolism of each planet and how to identify and interpret past, present and future transits. We'll also be discussing the importance of the progressed chart and how to identify and interpret key progressions for any given year. The combination of a progression, transit and lunation is crucial to accurate predictive work 11am - 5pm at Philadelphia Assocation, London. £65.00 (£55.00 per day early bird - deadline for early bird payment 7 July). email: Joanna Watters
