Mystic Scholar Rumi and the Divine Tarot Connection.
The symbolism in Tarot depicts the journey of the spirit towards liberation and awareness. Sufism and Tarot point towards the same truth
‘We belong to God and to God we are returning.’
We will see how the poet Rumi and the Sufi master Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi have had an influence on how we can interpret the deep, spiritual meanings of the archetypal realm in Tarot.
Each of the 22 Major Arcana cards has one of the 99 names of God attributed to it!
Homeopathy & Astrology: The Importance of the Whole – Sue Tompkins
Astrology and homeopathy have quite a bit in common. In this lively talk Sue will explain what Homeopathy is and what the similarities are. She will also show some cured cases from both an astrological and homeopathic point of view.
Sue Tompkins has been a professional astrologer (consultant, teacher, and writer) for nearly forty years. Also a registered homeopath for more than twenty.
Mars or Mangala: His Strength and Challenges – Vijaya Subramanian
Mars is called Mangala which means “the Auspicious One”, and yet he is feared and blamed for discord as he lacks the softer skills that Venus naturally possess.
Mars represents the strength in any horoscope – strength of the body and of the intellect – that is why he is a master strategist and loves a challenge.
We will examine the impact of Mars in various houses including the dreaded Mangal Dosha, the mitigating factors and remedies with some examples.
Vijaya Subramanian is a Vedic Astrologer and a speaker based in London. She obtained her certificate of Jyotisha Pandita, after studying the Parasara Hora Sastra with her Guru Pt Sanjay Rath. She is undergoing further studies in Jaimini Sutras.
Saturn or Shani the feared one yet we have to ‘manage’ the Lord of Karma and time – Sonal Sachdeva
Without Shani there would be no enlightenment and illumination of consciousness. Yet, it is a one of the dire malefics and pretty much coloured in everything we do.
