Why does this mysterious set of cards hold such fascination for us?

We will do this through interactive teaching, lectures, discussions, learning card layouts, and  story telling. In addition, we will work to develop your intuition through guided imagery.

What differences are there is the astrologer’s approach to the parents of child’s chart, as opposed to the astrological approach to an adult’s chart? Using examples, I will explore this topic in some depth.

Recent work:

2 x astrology workshops for the Faculty of Astrological Studies:

http://www.astrology.org.uk/

Online webinar: Intermediate Interpretation on 11 June 2016

Expand and consolidate your astrological interpretation skills. A case study birth chart will be explored from the point of view of both exploring and identifying the chart’s MAIN THEMES, and putting the upcoming cycles of development into context. Looking at current transits, secondary progressions, solar arc directions and the Solar Return chart, and how these influence the birth chart’s key points.

The Astrological Sun on 24 July 2016

The Sun occupies the central place in the Solar System, of course. In the chart, it symbolizes your core personality and sense of identity and purpose. We will explore the Sun’s meaning over the course of the day, through myth and associations, zodiac signs and the body.

‘What do circuses, gold coins, lions and sunflowers have in common? They are all mysteriously associated with the astrological Sun…’

  • Planetary Magic course: description below

I plan to hold a new Planetary Magic course at Treadwells in 2017 (dates not yet finalised.) If you are interested or want to go on my mailing list for this, please email me on info@suemerlyn.com

Explore the magical meaning of the seven planets from Sun to Saturn

The course covers the symbolic meaning of each of the planets in depth; their myths, associated angels, a variety of magical practises, and is lots of fun while learning. Learn about planetary hours, colours and incenses, sympathetic magic, and the Western Mystery tradition.

This workshop immerses you in planetary magic. Working with the seven traditional planets, from Sun to Saturn, has been at the core of Western magic for over a thousand years. We will explore the mythological, astrological and psychological meanings of each planet as used in magical thinking and magical practice. There will be opportunities for active participation, and students will be encouraged to bring corresponding objects to build an altar to each planetary power. It can be seen as a journey of the imagination, and of learning different kinds of magical ritual.

Testimonial from a student on a previous Planetary Magic Course:

‘I loved every minute. I was a little nervous at the beginning but really enjoyed exchanging thoughts, feelings etc. with the group. I gained a good insight into the workings of planetary magic and how to apply it’ CB

A selection of previous talks/workshops/courses:

A Tarot Intermediate Day Seminar was  held at the LSA on Saturday 30 June 2013 :   Tarot Story Journeys

This Intermediate seminar was intended for those who already have studied the basic meanings of the tarot cards, and wished to recap and expand on their previous knowledge.

One creative way to approach tarot readings is to view them like progressive life stories. We explored ways to expand your understanding and build your confidence in doing readings for yourself and for others. In the process we  revisited the journey of the Fool – your own individual journey  –  through the 22 Major cards, gain more experience of combining cards, and learnt a new astrologically based layout. This was a day packed with exciting new insights and information about the tarot.

Recent International lectures/workshops

Two astrology lectures were given in Melbourne, Australia, in March 2015 for the TS Bookshop (Theosophical Society), and the VAA (Victoria Astrology Association.)

A Tarot workshop was held at the Riviera Reiki Centre, in Villefranche, near Nice in France, in October 2014, evening, (in English): The Fool’s Journey.

Using the timeless magical system of the tarot, I considered some universal questions, such as

  • Where are you going in your life?
  • What is your purpose?
  • Who are you really anyway?

A workshop to find out more about what the tarot can teach us, and how you can learn more about using this ancient deck of cards to begin finding answers to these questions. This workshop was interactive, with exercises and a guided meditation.

Other workshops in the south of France are planned for February 2016, details to be announced. Watch this site!
