During this two-day workshop, the second of four foundational modules on archetypal astrology, we will explore the place of the planetary archetype Neptune in human life. Neptune is the universal principle associated with myth and dream, transcendence and dissolution, mystery and magic. It manifests in fantasies and projections, images and illusions, giving rise to the yearning for paradise and the quest for the ideal. It is that principle that moves us to seek connection to the eternal and to rediscover a sense of enchantment. Using film clips, music, and text, the lecture presentation by Keiron Le Grice will draw on a range of examples from the arts. philosophy, and psychology to help you recognize and understand Neptune’s role in your own life. Over the weekend, you will learn the fundamental techniques and principles needed to work with astrology for yourself mediated through a close engagement with your own chart. There will also be opportunities for group discussion and informal conversation with instructors and classmates. Subsequent workshops will focus in turn on Pluto (September 2018) and Uranus (March 2019). We hope you can join us!
