LIVE EVENTS with Demetra George
Join Demetra for live astrology workshops and conference appearances.
May 28-29, 2021
Demetra will be presenting two lectures at NORWAC
The Six House
Ancient astrologers referred to the sixth house as the place of bad fortune – the location of the difficult experiences of life such as accidents, illnesses and servitude. Explore their thinking and learn which astrological indications suggest the possibility of unfortunate sixth house potentials being transformed into more positive outcomes.
The Hellenistic Condition of a House
Why are some houses strong or weak, some favorable or unfavorable, and yet others happy or sad? How does testimony enhance or diminishes the positive outcomes of the various house topics? Learn the Hellenistic approach to evaluating the baseline condition of a house as a preliminary step to interpreting a planet in that house.
June 4-6, 2021
Demetra will be presenting a full weekend intensive at Astrology Toronto.
Friday June 4th 2021, 7:30-9:30pm EDT:
Origins of Hellenistic House Meanings
The meanings of the twelve house topics of life are derived not only from the sub-structures of Hellenistic astrology itself, but also influenced by the myths, religions, philosophy, and literature of the ancient cultures that shaped Western astrology. Discover the various threads that are woven into the names and significations of the houses.
Saturday June 5th 2021, 11-6pm EDT:
The Eighth House: The Primordial Deep
Penetrating the hidden dimensions and multiple transformations of eighth house meanings and the charts of people who had to use eighth house topics to actualize their lives.
Sunday June 6th 2021, 11-6pm EDT:
The Twelfth House: The Luminosity in the Dark
Suffering, confinement, enmity, and spiritual liberation are fused into the foundation of twelfth house meanings. Discover how the nature and condition of planets in the twelfth house provide lampposts along the path of the soul’s most challenging journey.
Advanced Hellenistic Planetary Condition
This course presents the advanced Hellenistic principles of planetary condition that will enable you to fully understand how a person experiences the strengths, challenges and various outcomes indicated by each of the traditional planets in terms of modern sensibilities.
Topics covered include: Sect-rejoicing; triplicity and bound rulerships; solar phases, helical and morning/evening rise and set; and special lunar phenomena. Aspect bonification and maltreatment are covered in detail, illustrated with example charts.
Each lesson includes homework to help you integrate what you’re learning as you go. Demetra reviews the homework answers at the beginning of the next lesson.
This course aims to teach you how to synthesize the various Hellenistic criteria and arrive at a judgement about each planet. The course focuses on the traditional planets from Sun through Saturn and does not include the outer planets.
This course follows the Hellenistic Astrology Primer course. Those already familiar with the basics of traditional methods can jump into this one. If you’re unsure, review the description of the Primer course.
Prior knowledge of planets, signs, houses, aspect meanings, and basic interpretation skills is essential.

Mysteries of the Dark Moon
This year marks the 29th anniversary of the publication of Mysteries of the Dark Moon, and we are excited to announce the first online course about this timeless and timely teaching. The dark phase of the Moon’s cycle is a metaphor for the closure phase of any cyclic process when the life force seems to withdraw and disappear. However, it is during this secret dark time that life is renewed and once again emerges with vibrant potency. This is the great mystery held by the dark goddess in all her names.
Demetra will present an overview of the historical, mythological, psychological and spiritual perspectives regarding the dark moon phase mysteries. This will be followed by teachings on the eight lunation phases as well as the lifetime progressed lunation cycle, with special attention to the progressed dark moon phase that everyone passes through several times during the course of their lives. Reflecting upon your life as a whole, discover how what seemed like extended dark periods of loss, failure, lack of vision, or depression were actually a restoration of soul that preceded beginnings of new cycles of evolving life purpose. Natal and progressed chart data will be provided to all participants.
Course includes 4 live 90 minute lessons with time for Q&A, suggested reading and optional homework, and discussion forum.
Dates: August 14-Sept 4th
Time: 11-12:30 pm PST (convert to your timezone)
Running Time: Approximately 90 min.
