The Next Event: Grand Conjunctions and Shadow Planets

Joseph Cotton and Alida Valli in The Third Man

We are very pleased that Bernard Eccles and Adam Smith will be sharing the day on May 20.

Bernard will discuss these Grand Conjunctions and how they are working for us today.
"Everybody knows that the seven traditional planets were together in Aquarius in 1962, though we seem to have forgotten the one that took place in 2000. Yet to have two of these events within forty years is extraordinarily rare: there were only three in the preceding two thousand years, centuries apart, and there won’t be any more until at least 2400. Each one seems to change the course of history significantly, not just in Western Europe but in other parts of the world as well. And do all the planets have to be in the same sign? Or will just being within 30 degrees of arc do? And what about the outer planets? These horoscopes, far-reaching in every sense, are well worth looking at.”

Bernard has been teaching and writing about astrology since well before the last Grand Conjunction — and maybe as far back as the previous one.

Adam Smith will discuss the Lunar Nodes in Vedic Astrology
"Rahu and Ketu are essential parts of Jyotish, rising to the status of ‘shadow planets’. Yet their interpretation differs radically to that of Western natal astrology. How has this difference come about? With techniques and traditions East and West, Adam explores some of the myths that surround our understanding of the all-important nodal axis.”

Adam is an astrologer with a background in yoga meditation, whose work has been published in magazines around the world. After studying Western astrology for many years his practice is now based in Jyotish. www.astrovedas.com
