***Only one spot left!***
Join Kelly Surtees and Tony Howard for a special desert retreat that will help you make the most of 2019. You’ll learn how to use progressions and transits to understand and align with the powerful energies unfolding in this momentous year. And you’ll leave with practical tools for working with these planetary processes in your own chart.
Pre-workshop bonus recording: Why Should We Make Predictions?
Kelly prepares us for the weekend by sharing some thoughts about why predictive astrology techniques can be useful. You’ll discover why using transits and progressions can help you make informed choices, plan for good timing, and set goals for the coming year.
Friday 7-9pm: Informal meet and greet with Kelly and Tony at a classic mid-century modern home.
Saturday 9:00am to 5:00pm: Progressions – Harmonizing with Natural Cycles of Growth
Your cycles of growth are unique and originate from deep within your psyche. We can track profound inner shifts through the symbolic timing tool of secondary progressions. Today we’ll explore the power of progressions, and learn how to use them in predictive work.
In the morning session, you’ll learn how progressed planets correlate with the timing of permanent shifts as Kelly introduces the core technique. We’ll look at the progressed planets through the signs and by aspect to discover some of specific dreams and desires that can manifest.
In the afternoon session, you’ll apply these tools to your own chart for the year ahead. We will provide a print-out of your progressions for 2019. You’ll have space to ask questions and to begin thinking about how to incorporate these energies into your upcoming plans.
Sunday 9:00am to 5:00pm: 2019 Transits – Highlights, Trends and Opportunities
2019 represents the end for two longer trends while simultaneously holding an energetic tug of war, as Jupiter in Sagittarius vies for adventure while Uranus and Saturn in earth signs look for necessary change and new ways to build security.
How will the major transits of 2019 influence you? What happens when your inner needs, as described by your progressions, meet with the 2019 celestial landscape, as shown by the transits of the year? Will you achieve your goals in 2019, or are distracting events likely?
In the afternoon session, we’ll include a creative vision board exercise to help you visualize your year ahead through your chart.
We’ll close the day with some powerful resilience-building practices led by Tony where you’ll learn a simple gratitude journaling process that can revolutionize your day-to-day experience. We’ll also learn some practical tools to balance our brain’s natural tendency towards negativity bias so that we can face the year ahead with hope, curiosity and openness to whatever comes our way.
We’ll start each day with a short meditation and gratitude practice.
