The Times They are A’Changing

with Darby Costello

Pluto went into Capricorn in 2008 as many of our taken-for-granted collective structures began to collapse.   Neptune went into Pisces in 2011 and who knows what dreams began to fade away as new dreams were seeded in the dark. 

These two planets have been sextile in these signs six times in the last 3000 years. In this webinar we shall look at each of the earlier historical periods to see what we might find in common with our own times and to explore how we might personally and collectively work with these energies for the future of our species and our planet.

At The Crossroads – When Planets Hit The Ascendant

with Steven Forrest

The journey of a thousand miles famously starts with the first step – and the journey through the twelve astrological houses starts with the Ascendant. It is literally the beginning of the beginning. When a planet hits it by transit, progression, or solar arc, the reality that crystalizes in your life is that you have arrived at a crossroads

Join Steven for a careful look at how astrology helps you navigate these “mini-reincarnations” in a way that works well for you in the long run.
