Presenters: Alex Trenoweth, Bruce Scofield, Dorothy Oja, Adam Elenbaas, and Celeste Brooks
What You’ll Learn:
What’s in store for 2024? Check out this forecast to hear from five astrologers on what you can expect next year… and beyond.
- Alex Trenoweth – Zeus on the Loose
For the first half of 2024, transiting Jupiter in Taurus will be within orb of conjunction with Uranus and it will finish the year in the sign of Gemini. What could this mean for the economy and perhaps more importantly, as the educational field continues to recover from Lockdown, how can we support our children in times of instability?
- Bruce Scofield – Astro-Climatology and the Climate Crisis
The global climate system is sensitive to weak forces at great distances—mostly those from the solar system. Today, the dominant animal species, H. sapiens, is amplifying and accelerating the normal fluctuations and cycles of our planet’s climate and this is reflected in extreme weather conditions that are becoming more frequent. I will describe the known effects on climate of orbital cycles, solar cycles, and cosmic ray cycles—both long and short. The role that planets play in climate, and their past and future role in climate change, will be a focus of this presentation.
- Dorothy Oja – Wild Wind: Pluto in Aquarius
Pluto is slow, systematic, and relentless. We are on the edge, pivoting as culture and society integrates Pluto’s entry into air-sign Aquarius. Pluto’s last sign change was 2008. We’ll look back first, to get our bearings and gather the tools that might help us thrive in the strange and uniquely creative realm of Aquarius. Fasten your seat belts, the winds of accelerated change are here. Pluto remains in Aquarius for the next 20 years.
- Adam Elenbaas – The Journey of the Nodes of the Moon in 2024
In this talk, we will explore the annual eclipses and the meaning of the nodes of the Moon in Libra and Aries in the year ahead. Students of all schools of astrology will have something to take from this talk, as we consider both ancient Hellenistic and Indian points of view, as well as the modern, evolutionary perspective on the meaning of the nodes in 2024. We will explore the archetypal meaning of the south node in Libra and the north node in Aries, from several different perspectives, while also looking at the unique signatures surrounding the major eclipses of 2024.
- Celeste Brooks – Eclipses and Retrogrades of 2024
Eclipses are intensified new and full moons. These evolutionary cycles bring significant change on the personal and collective levels. In 2024, the work continues on the axis of relationships. Planetary retrogrades are an optical illusion where planets appear to reverse through the zodiac. These cycles are associated with delays, miscommunication, repetition of previous events, and the collapse of plans. Individually, they offer an opportunity to reflect, reassess, and reconsider the approach to the topics the planet rules. This talk will provide insights on the eclipses and retrogrades of 2024 so that participants can personally prepare for the upcoming energetic shifts and predictions on what may surface collectively.
