The 12 Healers in Medical Astrology
featuring Kira Sutherland
Many forms of natural medicine come in the number 12. Dr. Edward Bach originally created 12 flower essences referred to as the 12 healers. Dr. Schussler coined the term cell salts or tissue salts which are the 12 mineral combinations that the body needs to maintain homeostasis. In this lecture, naturopath and medical astrologer Kira Sutherland will take you on a journey around the 12 astrological signs and their corresonding rulerships in energetic medicine. This is a practical workshop where you will learn to apply these remedies to the natal, progressed chart and much more.
Kira Sutherland is a highly experienced, award-winning naturopath, nutritionist, herbalist and
medical astrologer living in Australia. She divides her time between clinical practice and
writing/lecturing on these subjects and is known for her vibrant, straightforward teaching
style. She has lectured around the world and uses her 25 years of clinical experience and vast
knowledge of healing in combination with her passion for medical astrology into a beautiful mix of mind/body medicine. Visit her website at kirasutherland.com.au.

Cultivating Intentional Relationships with the Davison Chart
featuring Mo Olufemi
Davison Relationship Charts present unique advantages to synastry and midpoint composite charts, making them useful for contextualizing the purpose of relationships. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to interpretive principles for these charts. We will work through case studies of romantic, familial, professional and adversarial relationships to see these principles in practice.
Mo is a North American traditional astrologer specializing in Hellenistic and Medieval timing techniques. She began her journey with Jyotish. She is also versed in the combination of tarot with astrological correspondences via the Golden Dawn traditions. In particular, she focuses on utilizing the “lesser” dignities such as triplicity, bounds and decans to provide extra nuance when delineating charts. She also has a vested interest in using these nuances within essential dignity to understand key themes within relationships, since she is also a big proponent of using the Davison Relationship Chart.

Fixed Signs: Staying, Generating and Growing Power
featuring Tara Aal
The fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) want value, meaning and purpose. They show us where and how we need more staying, generating and growing power. When working with fixed energy (by sign or house), things aren’t always stuck, and sometimes the habits, patterns and realities we are stuck in seem quite free or flexible. Anything can turn rigid, even our addictions to freedom. If you have strongly fixed signatures in your birth chart or are going through a significant fixed-type transit or progression, what does it mean and what can you do to move with evolutionary intention? Join Tara to explore how to get your fixed energy working for you.
Tara Aal is an evolutionary astrologer, writer, educator, artist and tarot reader. She is the co-author of “Astrology by Moonlight” and “Natural Astrology.” Tara has been practicing since 2011 and sees clients, teaches and speaks (including at NORWAC, UAC, Kepler College and ISAR). She’s passionate about experiential astrology, including the practice called Living Planets 1st, and currently serves on the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR) Board as Vice-President. Connect with her at TaraAal.com.

Navigating Zodiacal Difference
featuring Mat Dragonstone
The diversity of signification between astrologies can be baffling, especially given the ways in which any one astrological system can (if applied correctly) seemingly explain everything. We expect at least similarity in descriptions of discrete parts of the sky, and yet we are often thwarted in our attempts to make sense of other astrologies from within our own. Rather than presenting a radical unifying theory of astrology, this webinar seeks to provide the intrepid astrological wayfarer with a guide to understanding diverse astrological systems by way of translation.
