Join Demetra for live astrology workshops and conference appearances.
SEPTEMBER 21 – OCTOBER 16, 2022
The History of Astrology
Discover astrology’s rich history and tradition beginning with ancient Babylonia, its consolidation in Egypt, the diffusion of astrology through the Roman Empire and sojourn into the Persian and Islamic Republics, to its 12th Century reintroduction into Medieval Europe.
In this engaging and enlightening seminar the interface between astrology and ancient philosophy, religion, myth, and politics is deeply explored. How the Gnostic, Hermetic, Neoplatonic, Christian, and Jewish traditions regarded one’s life through the reflection of the stars and the concept of fate and free will is brilliantly articulated.
Includes breakout session on the unique history of astrology in the US in the 19th and 20th Centuries.
This course will leave you in awe with a rich context for astrology’s place in our history, and a new awareness of the profundity of the astrological tradition and its legacy to the human imagination.

October 26 – November 20, 2022
Intro to Hellenistic Astrology
Learn the Hellenistic approach to natal chart reading. Demetra introduces the concept of “planetary condition” as practiced by ancient astrologers. You’ll learn the first steps towards making a judgment about a planet’s relative ease or difficulty in expressing its significations. Includes the first set of tools including: sect, traditional planetary rulership, the use of whole sign houses, solar phase, intro to aspect configurations, and making a judgment. This course prepares students to pursue further studies to learn a more complete set of Hellenistic techniques for evaluating planetary condition, either through self study or advanced courses with Demetra.

October 8-12, 2022 Egyptian Star Decans
This talk will elaborate upon what I did last year about the Egyptian decans, where I will turn the focus to the stellar mythology of Isis and Osiris as the prototype for decan astronomy. You can receive a 15% conference registration discount before June 24 with the code OSIRIS.
The story of Isis and Osiris, one of ancient Egypt’s foundation myths, mirrored the astronomy of the decan stars as early as 2400 BCE, which, in turn, became the basis for timing the soul’s journey through the netherworld and its rebirth. Fifteen hundred years later images of decanic gods were inscribed upon gemstone amulets for protection against disease and by the Hellenistic era were incorporated into astrology and astral magic.
