The Traditional Mundane Course

The purpose of this course is to introduce you to the fundamentals of this very important facet of astrology. You will learn how to approach the various phenomena and their charts through the conjunctions of 1981 and 2000, and then apply that theory to the 2020 conjunction and its satellite charts; culminating in an examination of the connections with the coronation of Charles III. We shall use the charts of the conjunctions, eclipses, lunations, and ingresses as appropriate to achieve our results. The traditional methods used differ from what you might expect but produce accurate results when properly applied.

All charts are provided along with some study material. This is an advanced course using traditional methods, students should be able to use an ephemeris and handle more than one chart at a time.

The course is of 6 live consecutive weekly classes of 1.5 to 2 hours’ duration, all begin at 2.30pm BST and recordings made available after each class.

Saturday, 3 June 2023 Class 1: how to judge the Saturn-Jupiter conjunction;

New book by Sue Ward!

The traditional art of astrology applied through the horary lens to some of the most traumatic events in our society. These sixteen cases, chronologically ordered, offer students of astrology an informal insight into how to use the astrological figure in these matters, applying the horary perspective to the most common event times available.

Sue Ward began working on crimes such as these in the 1990s when her results were passed over to the police in America via a colleague. Since then she has become more informed about the nature of these terrible crimes and those who carry them out. Her knowledge of these matters is shared here in informal style in the hope that one day we will be expert enough to be taken seriously by the police. This may simply be so that we might help to find the victims and provide some solace to the families and loved ones.

Chart Mentoring

These ‘pop up’ single mentoring sessions are primarily intended for those who understand the processes of traditional horary practice. However, if anyone else is interested, you should contact me in the first instance and we’ll see what we can arrange. The sessions last for about 2 hours.

Bring the charts that have puzzled you or have caused you a problem; we can discuss them in these sessions with some charts that I will provide. Or come along just to join in the discussion. The purpose of these sessions is to provide some extra experience in chart judgement and are not intended as formal tuition; these are practice sessions.

Session dates are as follows:
Sunday 4 June 2023 at 2.30 pm BST
Sunday 2 July 2023 at 2.30 pm BST
Sunday 6 August 2023 at 2.30 pm BST
Sunday 3 September 2023 at 2.30 pm BST
Sunday 1 October 2023 at 2.30 pm BST

Sue Ward Talking Horary I & II

A year ago, in these two workshops, I showed a few hints and tips for judging horary questions in varying contexts. Questions about marriage, inheritance, love, career, health, buying land, lost animals, theft, politics, absent husbands, moving house, fugitives, war, and death were examined with participants. These recordings are now available to purchase.

Each workshop was of two hours’ duration. The recordings are £15.00 each, or £25.00 for both.

Now available Sue Ward’s Collected Essays: Reflections on Traditional Astrology

Written primarily to support Sue Ward’s Traditional Horary Course, this volume presents 21 essays on Traditional Astrology. These essays represent some 40 years of study and practise, and the deep and prolonged thought always required in the study of astrology. However, for a working astrologer and teacher, this understanding cannot remain as meditations; they must become manifest and be put to good use. In this collection, those reflections are explained and applied in order to assist others who might want to develop a deeper understanding of the traditional astrological system and the early modern method as espoused by William Lilly (1602-1681).

Book Launch

This short video offers a presentation to the new book by Sue Ward:
Sue Ward’s Collected Essays. Reflections on Traditional Astrology.



Newly released textbook now available at Amazon

For the first time since its inception in 1993, the Traditional Horary Course is in book form as a foundational text for students. It contains twenty lessons teaching the entire traditional system as it applies to horary astrology, the art of interrogations, for beginning and advanced students. Sue Ward explains the astrological system as it stood in the early modern period and as it was articulated by William Lilly (1602-1681) in his Christian Astrology. He studied widely and in great depth, and was the foremost astrologer of the mid-seventeenth century. His study of astrology was filtered through his wide practice and disseminated through his textbook and other writings. The result of his work is presented here through the lens of one of his students.

This book is an encyclopaedic explanation of the techniques of William Lilly’s teaching and practice with lots of example charts, it is therefore an excellent reference work for all astrologers. ISBN: 9798477494156
