Studyshops

A sure way to expand your knowledge

Studyshops are classic audio workshops or tutorials from great astrologers, designed to place you in the front row of the workshop and provide you with an image-rich, textually vibrant environment in which to learn. They lend themselves to self-study, as well as forming your own Studyshop group to listen and learn together. 

Studyshops for everyone

Scroll down this page to view our range of Studyshops. You can also use the buttons on the right to jump down to the section you are interested in.

About Studyshops

Each Studyshop contains many hours of lectures, with accompanying pages, articles and background information. 

The core of each Studyshop is always an audio workshop or set of tutorials. This is then supported by textual material which either expands the ideas put forward in the workshop or enhances and extends those ideas with background or historical information, as well as images, photographs and paintings which contain or symbolise those ideas.

Each Studyshop is designed to open automatically in your PC (Windows 98 or later) MAC or Unix platforms.  

Once you have downloaded the studyshop make sure you unzip it into its own folder somewhere on your computer then open the folder and double click on the file named ‘index’ . Your browser will open the title page of the Studyshop. To open the main page click on the name of the workshop, in the same way as you surf the web. You will see all the audio files listed along with descriptions of the workshop or tutorial sessions. By clicking Part 1 or Part 2, and so on, you will automatically open your computer’s sound system which will play the audio file. As you move your mouse across the different links on the page, you will find Bonus gateways or portals into other articles, images and background information which you can open while you are listening to the audio files. You can also open your word processor and take notes as you listen, as the audio files will run in the background.

All audio files are placed into a clearly marked folder so you can, if you wish, move the MP3 files onto any other audio playing device you may have. 

The images above are from Liz Greene’s Astrology, Myth and Fairy Tales Studyshop, Bernadette Brady’s Relationship Astrology as well as her Studyshop on Predictive Astrology. There is also an image is from Charles Harvey’s Studyshop on Mercury.

The Zodiac: Urban Tribes
Bernadette Brady

So often taken for granted and never really encountered, this studyshop introduces you to the zodiac as a living pulsing concept in your every day life, one that has emerged from the journey of our social development. The Cardinal signs, tied to the seasonal rhythm, mirror the components of the hunter-gatherer tribe. Mutable signs show our ability to learn, conquer fears and explore our world. Finally, the Fixed signs emerged with the agrarian age, where planting, growing and dependence on seasonal cycles allowed us to create tradition and reliability. All three approaches combine in the horoscope to produce the 21st century citizen who lives in an urban tribe.  A BROWSER studyshop.

The Horoscope’s Angles

Darrelyn Gunzburg

The angles of the horoscope are formed by the Ascendant, Descendant, Midheaven and the Bottom of the Sky. These angles are also called the Cross of Matter, not only from the shape they create in the chart, but also because this is where the energy of the luminaries and planets lock into the material plane of earth. In so doing, they create the basic building blocks of your horoscope. They are also the most sensitive points in a chart to predictive work. This studyshop looks at the meaning of these angles in your chart and how they function in your life, from their expression in childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, and into maturity. A BROWSER studyshop.

Delineation, the unfolding story within a chart

Darrelyn Gunzburg

A chart is formed of parts and learning to read those parts is a function of good technique. But you, as a reflection of the chart, are more than the parts that created you. You live your life in story, and into your life you weave and grapple different issues at different time of your life. These issues form themselves into themes that interact to give ease or tension, and as you grow and mature, so those themes grow and mature with you. This studyshop shows you how to find those themes in your chart, how to handle them more effectively, and thus how to integrate them more productively in your life. A BROWSER studyshop.

An Advanced Guide to Chart Reading

Darrelyn Gunzburg

The first point Gunzburg covers is finding out what it is we think we are doing when we read charts, whether for friends and family or for clients. Knowing the answer to this points to how we proceed. She then considers how we make choices in life, for our choices are shaped by our biography. By understanding how we have faced previous dilemmas, we start to gain an understanding of the three-to-five issues that are alive in our chart and why we are drawn to certain stories time and time again at the cinema, on television, and in books to help solve those dilemmas. These stories can be read in your chart. Knowing your own stories helps you work to with them and help them when faced with choice. This is advanced delineation. A FLASH studyshop.

Rethinking Aspects

Bernadette Brady

Bernadette Brady is one of today’s most inspiring astrologers. In this studyshop she shows you how aspects are more than just geometry. They have likes and dislikes of certain ‘places’ in the zodiac and thus, as they form relationships between planets in those signs, they bring attitudes to it. They can turn a trine into trouble, a sextile into a trap of deceit, and put the least likely planet in a conjunction in charge. Understanding these dynamics enables you to see which aspects in your chart are ‘hot’ and which are not. This studyshop contains over four hours of Flash presentations. A FLASH studyshop.
