We have two events in September by Astrologer and teacher Anne Ortelee


Friday, September 23 7-8:30 pm Lund’s Community Room, Uptown, Minneapolis

Uranus and Eris are joining in the sky. Eris is a newly discovered planet, and will be making her way into our consciousness as she meets up with creative Uranus in fiery passionate Aries. We’ll explore how these two primeval energies combine, joining to start us on a new cycle of consciousness. Similar to the eighteenth-century Enlightenment – life will never be the same!

Suggested Donation: $10 members/$15 non-members



Mapping Your Life

Saturday, September 24 10 am – 5 pm

*Fountain Woods Condominium Party Room, 2nd floor, 6670 Vernon Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55436, USA* 

A day long hands on Astrology Workshop/Funshop learning and working with various astrology techniques to Map Your Life. Students will first work with the chart of a famous person to learn a technique. After understanding a technique, Students will work with the chart supplied at registration. Students can work with their own chart (suggested) or the chart of a person close to them.

Techniques covered will include Transits, Secondary Progressions, Lunar Phases, Nodes, Planetary Returns, Solar Arcs, Midpoints, Pinball, and Lifespan Declination. At the conclusion of the Workshop/Funshop, each Student will leave with an integrated Map of their Life as well as suggestions and ideas on how to work with their natal potential and upcoming life events.

Often Astrology is taught transit by transit to the natal chart. In this Workshop/Funshop, we’ll endeavor to see each and every life as a whole, integrated, soul experience. You’ll come to understand how the events of your life combine to create the beautiful kaleidoscope and shimmering tapestry of you. As we fly over your life at 20,000 feet, you’ll integrate the life events, turning points and pivotal moments of your life in a new way.
