Astrological Association of Great Britain 2020 Conference

It is an honour to be speaking at the 52nd Astrological Association conference, originally to be held in Bedfordshire but now taking place online at the end of this month, 26th-28th June.

The theme of the conference is Serving The Future.

A rich and diverse programme, with 45 great international speakers! Access to all conference webinars for 21 days.

Speakers include: Bill Meridian, Christian König, Wendy Stacey, Lynn Bell, Wade Caves, Benjamin Dykes, Amanda Bradbury, Maria Blaquier, Tim Burness, Rod Chang, Frances Clynes, Jadranka Coic, Jodey Collorick, Mark Cullen, Kieron Devlin, Gill Dorren, Anna Estaroth, Crystal Eves, Kim Farnell, David Hamblin, Stephanie Johnson, Ryuji Kagami, Jupiter Lai, Jane Lewis, Susan Lionti, Ray Liu, Omari Martin, João Medeiros, Martin Sebastian Moritz, Fernanda Paiva, Giulio Rocco Pellegrini, Izabela Podlaska-Konkel, Robyn Ray, Christina Rodenbeck, Gali Sat Puran Livneh, Anne Schneider, Henry Seltzer, Jan Seward, Richard Smoot, Tom Stedall, Cathy Stronach, Aswin Balaji Subramanyan, Richard Swatton, Mark Urban-Lurain, Lara van Zuydam, Leigh Westin.

I will be talking at 5.30pm to 6.30pm on the Saturday evening, 27th June. Having attended the AA conference in 2018, I know it can be an exhilarating but exhausting experience taking in so much high quality astrology in such a short space of time – I hope enough people have enough space left in their brains for me by Saturday night! From the programme:

Total Transformation – Tim Burness. As we continue to experience the seismic shifts of the 2020 triple conjunctions, where are we headed? Total transformation is required. Using a wide range of charts to explore the interconnected crises of capitalism, ecology and democracy, this talk will explore possible ways forward.

Brighton astrologer Tim Burness – 30 years experience, available for consultations and readings

Tim Burness – astrologer based in Brighton, UK

Based in Brighton (UK), Tim has run a busy astrological consultation and teaching practice at several points over the last thirty years, working with people from all walks of life.

There have been many appearances in local and national media and also some celebrity clients. Mostly however, Tim has interpreted birth charts for thousands of individuals with more ordinary lives!

With or without a face-to-face consultation, a careful in-depth analysis of the birth chart can be used as a guide to help us understand our psychological patterns and life choices. In keeping with other modern Western astrologers, the approach is to help empower the individual to become more fully responsible for his or her actions – “The stars incline, they do not compel.”

Brief astrological biography

After being surprised by the extraordinary accuracy of a computer forecast in 1986, Tim began intensive study, drawing on a very wide range of sources. These included seminars by the respected psychological astrologers Liz Greene and Howard Sasportas in London, coursework with the Faculty of Astrological Studies and the books of internationally acclaimed American astrologer Stephen Arroyo.

Tim gained massive experience in a short time from several years working regularly at Mind-Body-Spirit festivals and psychic fairs. Hundreds of face-to-face astrological consultations and personal feedback gave Tim a great opportunity to refine what works and what doesn’t. Client work gradually expanded in many directions, from advising on several business start-ups to work as a consultant for MIND, the mental health organisation.

In 1995 there were several local radio appearances under the name of Telepathic Tim, a path which he decided not to pursue further… ahem.

Since his teens, Tim has also explored a wide number of other related spiritual interests. These have included courses in Shamanic Consciousness and Therapeutic Intervention at the University of Sussex, a large number of intensive self-awareness courses and involvement with various forms of Buddhism. For over twenty years, Tim’s main day job was as a care and support worker across a wide variety of fields.

Astrology is a huge subject. Tim believes it really comes into its own when natal astrology (from the time, date and place of birth) is used as a guide to help us understand our life choices, psychological patterns and ongoing changes. This goes a lot, lot deeper than newspaper Sun sign horoscopes.

Bowie Astrological Association article

Drawing on his background as a musician, Tim’s article on “The Aquarian, Uranian nature of progressive rock” was included in The Book of Music Horoscopes, published by Flare Publications in 2018. There have been many recent contributions to both IAM Infinity astrological magazine and Journal, magazine of the UK Astrological Association. These have included a major essay on David Bowie’s birth chart, a piece on the life and chart of old friend Sir Harry Kroto, (the Nobel Prize-winning scientist) and an astrological perspective on the murder of Stephen Lawrence. For a brief period, Tim was Vice-Chairman of the Brighton Astrology Circle in East Sussex.

Tim continues to work towards raising the profile of accessible and intelligent astrology as a tool for personal, social and spiritual transformation. For more details, please see An introduction to the astrological birth chart and other blogs here.
