"The Void-of-Course Moon: Dead Zone, or Moment of Truth?" -
VOC Moon periods as often dismissed as "dead" times when nothing
productive can be initiated. But in this lecture, we take a look at the
charts of surprising and enduring events and connections that began when
the Moon was VOC - and challenge the way modern astrologers have come to
understand the VOC Moon. Members/Non-Members $10/15. All welcome.
Saturday, September 12th, 1:00 - 5:00 PM -
"I'll Follow the Sun: An Astrological Happiness Project" -
How did you find your way to astrology? Most likely, you followed the
Sun. The characteristics of our Sun Signs offered most of us our toehold
onto astrology’s rich and varied path. As we travel further along that
road, it’s fashionable to distance ourselves from the Sun – or rather,
from the misconception that Sun Signs are all astrology has to offer.
But turning our backs on the Sun may be hazardous to our spiritual
vitality and happiness, in the same way being deprived of sunlight saps
our physical energy.
In this workshop, we’ll explore how the transiting Sun’s pilgrimage
through your chart regulates the tempo of your days and years as
reassuringly as the seasons themselves. And we’ll look at some examples
of how the Progressed Sun’s much less frequent entry into a new sign or
house can signal truly life-changing transitions. Members/Non-Members
$20/25. All welcome.
Both of these events take place at the Ramada Inn, 6944 E. Tanque Verde Rd.
October 9 & 10 - to be announced soon here
November 13 & 14 - Erik Roth on Saturn
December 11 - Annual Holiday Potluck Party
Details on these & more events here soon.
