We have two events in August by classical Astrologer and teacher Andrea Gehrz

The Art of Making a Useful Prognosis

Friday, August 19th 7-8:30 pm Lund’s Community Room, Uptown, Minneapolis

Do you believe that astrologers can see the future? Is there any benefit to making predictions? Tonight, we will look to the great thinkers on the subject. Is there a theory behind crafting a useful prognosis? What are the components of a good prediction? Can we apply these theories to our personal transits? Astrologers, bring charts for discussion!

Astral Somatica Andrea Gehrz


Astral Somatica: A Deep Introduction to Physical Astrology

Saturday, August 20th 10 am – 4 pm

Holistic Gateway, 1415 6th St NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413

This class takes medical astrology to an exacting level. Did you know that you can map your chart to your spine? In this workshop, participants will learn to draw their “Astral Spine”. Also, we will hone in on the special effects of our Mars and Saturn placements. We will look into how our Astral Spine leads to a bodily distribution. We will extrapolate the Astral Spine to the rest of our vessel. We will look at patterns of growth, how we hold our weight, the outline of our face, and more. Participants will examine excesses and deficiencies, hard aspects, tendencies towards inflammation and constriction, etc.Topics will include dermatomes, body systems, nerve pathways, tendons, organs, and more.

**We will be having pot luck for lunch. STARS will provide sandwiches and some veggies. If you can, bring a little something to share. **
