7:00 Karmic Aspects and Configurations                                        Szusanna Griga                                                  

Aspects are the electric wiring of the chart, and whenever they form configurations the sum total is exponentially larger as they are the driving force behind everything in karmic astrology.

Biography: Zsuzsanna Griga has been practicing karmic astrology for 25 years. She teaches and works with clients in Budapest and in London. In Budapest she opened a healing centre in 2000, and also manages Clear Brook College of Parapsychology since 2003. She has named her astrological concept “Transcendental Karmic Astrology” as it uncovers the hidden karmic layers of the natal chart with the help of the asteroids, Trans-Neptunians, and fixed stars. The discovery and naming of the new celestial objects, the dwellers of the Asteroid Belt and the Kuiper Belt, is an ongoing process; as soon as another one is spotted and named mankind becomes aware of its workings. When you name something you give it a destiny, which will reflect back to you – a well-known psychological fact. Why is it important to uncover the hidden layers of a birth chart, you may wonder. Because the past influences the present, and by bringing it to the surface, by understanding and tackling it, the present incarnation can become a better, happier, healthier one. As a karmic astrologer, this is Zsuzsanna’s creed.

7:00 The Astrology of a New Vision of Capitalism                                  Roy Gillett

A lot has happened to the world economy since Roy last spoke on it to the Lodge in 2010. Earth stelliums bringing speculative obsessions ‘down to earth’ will dominate from 2018 through 2020. Present financial policies are unrealistic attempts to sustain a system past its sell-by date. Will Pluto-in-Aquarius period that will follow be worse or better? Does astrology suggest that the changes we now face are as, if not more, radical than those at the end of the neolithic period, five to six thousand years ago?

Biography: Roy is President of The Astrological Association and an international speaker. He has been publishing mundane projections since 1979 and writing The Astrological Journal’s “Working with the Planets” column since 2002.
