Hello All,

I thought some members might be interested to know that the Scottish Astrological Association have organised a one day workshop with Deborah Houlding and Bernard Eccles taking place on June 9th in Edinburgh. The day consists of two talks by Deborah Houlding followed by a presentation by Bernard Eccles.


Saturday 9th June - Deborah Houlding and Bernard Eccles
Main Hall , The Theosophical Society, 28 Great King Street, EH3 6QH
£25 Scottish Astrological Association members £30 non-members 10am – 5pm

Deborah Houlding

'Ploughs, Bears and Burials: the Wheel of Fortune in the Pole Stars'
Star knowledge is best learned ‘by heart’ so this talk takes a visually rich tour through a host of information that helps astrologers understand the way constellations have been charted historically and put to use astrologically. Focusing on the polar constellation Ursa Major, it demonstrates key principles which build depth and breadth into constellation meanings and secure our knowledge of celestial movements. Concluding with a comparative chart study, it also demonstrates the value of including prominent stars in chart work and the extent to which it is useful to do this.

'Connections in Time: the Horary Resolution Chart'
A reliable assessment of timing is considered an advanced element of horary. This presentation looks at how the symbolism of time reveals itself quite naturally, so long as it is a pertinent issue in the question and we know what we are looking for. Exploring several chart examples, we see how connections between moments of horary enquiry and resolution are often quite stunning. Understanding the issues involved allows us to identify the best method for horary timing techniques, whilst affirming the value of horary and the wider astrological principle of how celestial cycles unfold meaning over time.

Bernard Eccles

'Watching the Dance of the Planets'
Why are there so few myths about Mars? Why so many about Venus? Why is your eighty-third birthday so good? Why isn’t your Saturn return exact on your birthday? Why does Ptolemy say the Moon governs your first four years? Why not the first two, or six? The answers to all of these provide fragments of a different sort of astrology, based on the observation of the night sky at the rising and setting of the Sun. Eclipsed, if that’s the right word, over the centuries by ephemeris-based astrology, it’s ripe for revival.


Deborah is an acclaimed expert on traditional astrology. Her workshops are always lively and immensely useful. Editor of the pioneering Traditional Astrologer Magazine, host of Skyscript, and founder of Ascella publications. Deborah is the author of the book 'The Houses: Temples of the Sky' which is widely regarded as an essential text for anyone seeking a truly informed knowledge of the development and use of astrological houses. She has also authored a variety of articles on the history and techniques of traditional astrology in publications as varied as The Mountain Astrologer and Culture and Cosmos. Deborah is the Head of the School of Traditional Astrology (STA) which tutors astrologers to a professional level of horary practice by correspondence and residential workshops.

Deborah was awarded the Charles Harvey Award for her services to astrology at the 2010 by UK Astrological Association (AA). Deborah is multi-talented and busy, so its a real pleasure that she has created the time in her schedule to come up to Edinburgh.

Bernard is a renowned teacher of astrology and practitioner of the craft. His talks are invariably fascinating. For many years he was President of the Astrological Lodge in London and at the 2011 AA conference was awarded the Charles Harvey Award for his services to Astrology, which are simply too lengthy to mention!
