Hellenistic Astrology Retreat

Time Lords

Five-Day Intensive October 5-9, 2017 in Portland Oregon

Hellenistic Astrology Retreat 2017Discover the host of ancient timing techniques that have been recently revealed due to the translations of primary source Greek and Latin astrological texts. During this five-day retreat, we will delve into the toolbox of the ancient astrologer and learn how to use the timing procedures of:

  • Circumambulations through the Bounds
  • Planetary Periods and Ascensional Times of the Signs
  • Zodiacal Releasing from the Lots of Fortune and Spirit
  • Annual Profections with the Solar Return

These methods will enable you to look at the timing and alternation of better and difficult periods over the course of the life as well as the timing for the activation of topics such as such as vitality, marriage, children, profession, health, and wealth.

In the daily morning session, Demetra will explain each method and illustrate it with an example chart. The afternoons will be devoted to small group work practicing the technique on another chart, followed by the opportunity to apply the time lord procedure to your own chart with supervision and help from the instructors.

Positive Feedback from the 2016 Retreat

"Demetra George possesses a tongue touched silver by Mercury - she has the ability to clearly break down any complex astrological procedure into manageable, easy-to-understand pieces, articulating her instruction in a way that makes the rich wealth of the Hellenistic tradition easily accessible for even a novice astrologer. Her intimate relationship to the source material imbues her vast accumulations of wisdom with an authority delivered with the patience, warmth and humour that only the greatest teachers posses. McMenamin's Kennedy School in the lavish heart of Portland's Arts District, under Demetra George's tutelage became an astrological Hogwarts - a truly a magical environment!" - K. Murray

"I left the retreat with a more profound understanding of astrology's misty origins and its early techniques. Hellenistic astrology encompasses far more than whole sign houses. I left the retreat with a practical to-do list about how use ancient techniques in my day-to-day client work. I left the retreat with a new ability to read and understand old texts that had puzzled and baffled me just the week before. Since Demetra's intensive, and expanding my approach to honor the wisdom of my ancestors, I have attracted more clients. And even more critically, I have booked more second and third follow up visits. As we all know, that first consultation only scratches the surface but not everyone comes back. My clients are excited to learn about this ancient viewpoint, to see the sky through this Hellenistic lens, and are committing for the long haul." - D. Larkin
