Samhain / Halloween Webinar 2012 – free to listen! ( for a limited time)

Samhain Webinar 2012

Here is a special 75 minute (edited) replay of last year’s popular Samhain Webinar!

Follow this link to listen to the Samhain-Halloween Webinar with slideshow. 

I  talk extensively about Samhain, and also covers introductions to Paganism, Wicca, Altars, outdoor rituals..and answers questions from listeners. I hope you enjoy this informative webinar. If you have new questions, e-mail them to me (via my website contact point) and I will personally get back to you.

What’s a webinar?     Well, it’ an online seminar, with a slide show, and a soundtrack (live talk). It can be accessed by a website (watched on a screen in a web page, with volume turned up), or it can be listened to via a phone-in (participants phone a pre-publicised local number, and put a pin number in and get their call connected to the webinar …and listen in.   These used to be called `Teleseminars’ (telephone seminars), but now we have slides to go with them on websites…so they are more evolved and called `Webinars’.   Various hosting companies provide the online services for registering & running webinars.  (bit like website hosting). Webinars are highly evolved online communication, promotion & teaching tools…used for internet ventures & marketing.

Background to my first (Samhain 2011) webinar:

This webinar  was originally facilitated on 31st Oct’2011.  It originally came about because I was invited to appear in an internet radio show, to talk about Samhain, and also participate in a religious discussion about Halloween (in October 2011). However I was quite disappointed by the way my side of things (on Paganism) was warped by one of the other guests on the show – a Christian Priest. So, I made a big decision to start putting out the `uncensored’ version of my views… and my sister helped me set up this webinar. It was the first ever webinar I had done.. (and I had a very bad cold when I was doing it).

Bright Blessings

How Mercury retrograde showed up last night


The Astrology webinar last night (Venus trines & transits) went …well, almost 🙂

I had been planning the slides all day (previous day) and yesterday started creating them on my graphics package.. The art & creative process is enjoyable and rewarding in it self for me.

All was well, till the evening, when at one point I picked up a sudden energy.. I shook it away and continued, but then things started to get frantic, and a bit disruptive with technology. I think that culminated much later – suddenly – when my phone-link (and the phone-link of webinar tech /host) both got cut off …just about 1 hr into the webinar.  Luckily we had covered all the basics relevant to the webinar, and were doing last sections and future topics.  My partner who was listening in live in north london via website also said she had experienced tech problems.

We did manage to recover..  I think the Hostess Ivy was off aiar for 30 seconds. She came online and explained some features, and texted me to re-log in. And I was online within 2 minutes and covered the missing bit before progressing with further 25+ minutes!

I could get all upset about this technical glitch (Ivy had never had one in 6 yrs she has been running webinars. This was the first it seem).

But thing is, I am actually smiling to myself.  Yesterday was when mercury started retrograde. While I had been pre-occupied with the trines, I had not paid much attention to this, so the universe reminded me in a sharp way. But more importantly, it was a real live `evidence’ of the mishaps that mercury retrograde can bring..  So in a way, during  an astrology webinar,  we actually got a bit of `real live demo’ of the astrology influence!

Okay jubilation of proof aside, we do have the next 3 weeks of mercury retrograde. So it’s good to double check agreements, plans, contracts, appointments, transport time tables, and ..back-up computer files etc.

Stellar wishes to all.

Astrology webinar: Venus trines & transits

Invitation to : Astrology Webinar on 12th March’12.

Venus trine & transit

February started with a Mars-opposition-Venus. On the 15th Feb, Venus-squared-Pluto!! That energy overshadowed Valentine’s day.. Guess what? 14th March is looking brilliant. Venus-trines-Mars! (good) Venus-conjuncts-Jupiter (auspicious). ..and Venus-trines-pluto (Hot n intense!)..and and..Mars-tines-Jupiter.. (project and expand!)…and following day (15th Match), Mars-trine-pluto (more heat and passion..and raw sex!!) That’s not all. We are building up the expectations of the Venus-transit of the Sun, due to take place on 6th June!

On the other hand, we have got an intense aspect of Uranus-square-Pluto and Jupiter-square-Neptune , taking place on 24th/ 25th of June. Squares in astrology are the most excruciating ones that agitate us into taking action on pain of internal stress (not even oppositions are that challenging. They just require compromises and balances).

I’ve been exploring western astrology for over 2 decades. I’ve written weekly forecasts for AgeNet in the mid-90’s, provided private Chart & interpretations, and have freely given transit advise for close family & pagan friends for many years. My personal interests are in forecasting, and in what I call Astro-magic (using charts and transits to do personal magical work – not quite chart-correcting, but similar in a magical way).

The upcoming *double-grand trines is one not to be missed for personal work… especially when beneficial planets are involved. Let’ be honest- we can all do with more fortunes, wealth, luck and love. (*grand trine happens between 3 planets, and a double-grand-trine is when 2 of these happening at the `same time’).

So I like to share my insights on these, on how you can tune into these stellar energies and benefit from them in your lives.
Join me in a special webinar – totally ** free! Post questions beforehand. Log-in, tune in, phone in ..and listen.. watch…and even interact via chat with other

listeners! (Why Free? because astrology is a private calling, and these very trines are compelling me to share them. There is plenty of energies and good fortunes in the known universe to benefit all lives – we don’t need to hog, hide or hijack any of it).

Here’s the link for the Webinar.. Just go take a look now..
And on the night, click in to `listen to webinar’ and …listen. It’s that easy.
So, I hope to speak to you on the night in the net or via phone / skype.In case some of you are thinking that you don’t know astrology, transits, aspects.. Don’t panic. The webinar page has a link to an astrology article that gives all a simple beginners guide. In addition, I will spend a little but important time covering the basics of astrology in the webinar itself. Besides which, knowledge of astrology is not required at all, for you to benefit from it. Most of us drive a car but not all know how the machines work under the bonnet. Same with astrology. You can use it, without knowing the details of its mechanics.

Bright Blessings & great fortunes
