Saturn in Pisces: Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
Video recording of lecture given for NCGR in Philadelphia on 20 November 2022. 138 minutes in length. DESCRIPTION: Saturn’s entrance into Pisces on March 7, 2023 will bring a sea change in collective and personal events, as the star of Kronos will begin sharing the same mutable water as Neptune. Marking the end of the Saturn and Neptune cycle that began in 1989, Saturn will spend an extended period of time in close proximity with Neptune in Pisces before eventually forming an exact conjunction with Neptune in the first degree of Aries on February 20, 2026. This talk explores the meaning of Saturn transiting Pisces as well as Saturn’s cyclical relationship with Neptune that has correlated with dissolution of old orders and the emergence of idealistic movements. We discuss the potential of Saturn sailing through the oceanic expanse of Pisces and what we may discover washed up on shore from its tides.

Planets in Fall and the Spirit of the Depths
Webinar on planets in fall created for the Nightlight Astrology 2020 Spring Speaker Series. The Greek term for a planet being in its fall has been translated as a low lying place, like being brought down into a depression in the ground. Planets in fall have also been associated with states of depression and depressing circumstances, in contrast to the ideal heights associated with planets in exaltation. We will explore the essential balance between planets in fall and exaltation, what it means to be born with a planet in fall in your natal chart, and imagine together how to work with the descent into depths we can experience with a planet in fall. What wisdom and self realization can we gather from the dark places that planets in fall bring us to? Included in purchase: MP3 video recording of webinar which is three hours in length, as well as a PDF copy of the slideshow.
Pan’s Return: Jupiter in Capricorn
Video recording of webinar on the meaning of Jupiter’s transit through the dark forests of Capricorn from 2 December 2019 through 19 December 2020 (3 hours in length). As there has been a collective panic around the alignment of Saturn and Pluto in January 2020, we will draw meaning from Pan, the divine source of panic and a deity rooted in the living image of Capricorn. In a previous turning of the ages, Pan caused panic to aid the victory of the Olympians and formed the Capricorn constellation through fluidly escaping the onslaught of the Typhon. 2020 brings another turning of the ages and fears of other monstrosities we must face, as Jupiter comes to the end of its cycle with Saturn while being in the home of Saturn. Pan as well as other images of Capricorn will help guide us to discover the meaning of Jupiter being in its fall in Capricorn, as well as Jupiter forming three conjunctions with Pluto, a trine with Uranus, a sextile with Neptune, and a square with Mars retrograde in Aries during the year ahead. We will consider ways we can work effectively with Jupiter in Capricorn as well as its pitfalls we need to be aware of.
