Welcome to the Fascinating World of Astrology and Tarot…

Read on to find out more about what you can learn from Joanna Watters at The Greek Island Summer School, at the London Workshops and Seminars – and online.

Learning Astrology and Tarot with Joanna Watters

In Greece or in London, or online, my aim is always to teach you as much as I possibly can in the given time. I still remember what it was like to be a student, over 30 years ago, always thirsty for knowledge!

After every course or workshop you will go away with the information and the “how to” practical skills you need to develop your understanding of symbolism and divination. You’ll be able to continue your studies and hone your craft. Whether for your own needs and interests or for your own practice.

You will also learn about the magical and psychic nature of these ancient skills.

Greek Island Summer School

The Greek Island Summer School is based in the village of Nidri, the main resort of the idyllic Ionian island of Lefkada. All courses run for a week and are normally scheduled for May, June and September.

This Greek experience in the land of the gods is a unique opportunity for a study holiday, combining class hours with plenty of free time to relax, explore and socialize.

The Ascendant – Everything you Need to Know about the Rising Sign

This is the starting point of every horoscope, the Angle that marks the beginning to the First House. The degree and sign rising is determined purely by the time of birth, which is why your birth time is so important.

Without a birth time you can still look at all your planets but you won’t know where they’re all positioned, so it’s a bit like looking at a clock without hands. So the more precise the time of birth, the more accurate the chart.

The Ascendant sign symbolizes our appearance, how we approach the world, how others first see us and experience us, and it’s the lens through which we filter all our thoughts and actions.

Learn more about all of the 12 signs as the Ascendant and how they also lead us to the all important ruling planet of each horoscope.

We’ll also look at the opposite point of the Descendant, the beginning to the 7th House of relationships, the ruling planet of this Angle as the significator for partners and how to interpret it.

Questions, Questions – How to use the Tarot  for Answers and Guidance

The Tarot is an esoteric craft and an amazingly accurate divinatory tool. This workshop will focus on how to consult the Tarot for everything from your “card of the day” to the general picture for the next 6 months to finding answers to specific questions.

You will learn a variety of spreads that can be used to cover a whole range of subjects, from relationships to money, and you’ll also learn timing techniques. This means that you can address the what, why and when of any question.

In the morning session we’ll brush up on cards meanings, spreads and how to shuffle, deal and lay out your cards.

The afternoon session will be devoted to practicing readings, both giving and receiving, so that we can all learn from each other’s questions and see how the cards reflect our stories and journeys.
