Change In January Schedule

Sadly, Jessica Adams won't be coming to Oxford in January. We hope she'll be able to come later in the year.

So the January meeting will just be a planning meeting for the rest of the year.

Don't forget to circle February 15 for Bernadette Brady's one-day workshop though.

Christmas Astro-gig


Next meeting is on December 18 at the North Oxford Association. We start at 7.3O and finish around 1O.

We will be playing "Guess Whose Chart", so bring along a few of your own mystery charts. They need to belong to someone reasonably well known. We put them up on the projector and have a go at guessing. First prize is a mince pie.

See you there.

The Solar Returns Workshop

Our first one-day event, a workshop on the Solar Return or birthday chart, was a great success.

Guest speaker Lynn Bell, doyenne of psychological astrology, queen of the solar return and all-round clever woman was really wonderful. She managed to make us laugh, reel in astonishment, open our minds and think again.

The participants were also splendid: good questions were asked, attention was paid and some excellent comments were made.

Trinity College is always gorgeous, of course, and the Sutro Room itself has a particular atmosphere: studious yet theatrical.

The group would like to thank everyone who came – near and far - for making the day go so well.

To give you a flavour of the day here is a short clip of Lynn Bell speaking about astrological magic and the solar returns of 2013.

Talking About Pluto

Barry Goddard twinkling
That was fun.

Barry Goddard led an insight-filled, revelatory and well-attended meeting at the North Oxford Association on Wednesday. Regulars and newbies chipped in with their own experiences of Pluto transits. Barry took us through a fascinating journey into the geography of the underworld and the potential for self-transformation that Pluto transits offer.

See you next time.
Telling the truth about Pluto
Discussing Persephone.

Lynn Bell

Lynn Bell is coming to Oxford on November 9 to give a one-day seminar on solar returns. Have a look at the events page for tickets and times.

Meanwhile here she is three years ago discussing the current Uranus-Pluto square. Very accurate and still relevant because we are still only half way through the square. Listen and take note.

Astrotabletalk Comes to Oxford

The voice of Pluto himself, Barry Goddard, author of Astrotabletalk, one of our favourite blogs, is coming to talk to the group on October 16th. 

We are quietly thrilled, if a little nervous.

He's looking forward to having an open discussion, a kind of round-table talk with Pluto as the subject. Bring your charts and your own experiences of Pluto (the ones you can bear to talk about).

We'll be at the North Oxford Association in Summertown, Oxford from 7.30pm.

Barry is a gifted interpreter of personal charts and he'll be doing readings on Thursday October 17th here in Oxford. If you'd like to book him, please get in touch.

Welcome to the all new Oxford Astrology Group website.

We're an informal group. Amateurs, professionals; passersby and the Chancellor of the University himself: you're all invited to drop in and put in your two pennies worth. 

Every month we meet to talk about astrology – now, then and in the future. Sometimes these are simply tea-&-biscuits sessions so that we can really discuss some knotty issues, but we also have an exciting programme of guest speakers starting in the autumn.

NEXT MEETING OCTOBER 16 AT THE NORTH OXFORD ASSOCIATION.

Because we've had a few years off from inviting guest speakers, we wanted to start with style. So this autumn,  Lynn Bell is coming over from Paris to give a one-day teaching seminar on solar returns, a subject on which she is an absolute authority. Some of us think her book is the bible on the subject.

In March, we'll be hosting John Frawley, yes the "Real Astrologer" himself, for a full week-end workshop on horary astrology and the fixed stars. Frawley fans should book now, because spaces are limited.

Other speakers will be announced as we confirm dates.

For the current programme, click here. Please come back and check because we will be updating these pages as we book guests.
