This workshop will primarily focus on effective use of the dial techniques of symmetrical astrology, and how dials offer a fast track toward identifying the crux of any chart—the key configuration(s). Once you have the crux, you’ll see how it is consistently activated by solar arc and transits for important life events. We’ll begin with a demonstration of the use of both 90° and 360° dials for finding key configurations in charts of well-known people and events. Then, together we’ll examine a few additional charts, with workshop participants encouraged to take the lead in identifying the most significant configurations and what they might mean. Finally, in whatever remaining time we have, we’ll work with dial charts of workshop participants who have volunteered in advance to offer their charts, as well as feedback, for our collective investigation.
