Maurice will be presenting the following workshops at the Astrology Rising Conference:

Keynote – the 12th house Demystified

Maurice releases the second edition of his classic book: Neptune, the 12th house and Pisces: The Timelessness of Truth (Fall 2016), providing for the first time perhaps a clear and most profound understanding of this mysterious corner of the zodiac. The 12th house is associated with very a wide range of seemingly unrelated things, from prisons to illusions or the oceans – Join this talk to understand how these associations are actually part of a unified theory of everything.

Advanced Track- Identify Past Lives in the Birth Chart

Join this fascinating research with Maurice. We may know that the soul evolves through numerous incarnations and that the astrology chart can reflect past life themes, however, have we ever gather evidence of this phenomena? Maurice will discuss confirmed reincarnation cases, and look at the charts of the same soul in the current and preceding life. This is a rare peak into this phenomenon and will provide participants with tangible tools to use in their practice—a most compelling study.

Advanced Track- The YOD – Configuration for the Masterful.  

Composed of two quincunxes and a sextile, the Yod is often referred to as “The Finger of God.” This pointed-shaped configuration requires the highest of a person’s integrity; it deflates arrogance and can only be mastered through sincere humility. Maurice goes through all possible Yod placements in the chart, detailing the different evolutionary lessons in each case.

Cermonial Day- Connecting with your Animal Spirit

The Zodiac, or Zoo Dial, and many of the sky constellations are represented by animals who each capture a fundamental life force. We each have an animal force within us, and animal Totems, who provide us with a message for now, and for our whole life journey. On the celebration day of the North Node in Leo, position on the heart of the lion star Regulus, we will call upon our animal guide and understand its message.
