Finding Your Joy – Heather Roan Robbins @ Lunds & Byerlys - Uptown (Community Room)
Mar 16 @ 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM

Finding Your Joy: How to find resources in the astrological chart to live a full life. We will look to the Nodes, Jupiter placement and condition, and the conditions of all planets in a chart to mine it for clues for resilience and to bring joy to your life that can increase over time. When we know what works for us, we have more energy to tackle all our challenges.

Experiential Astrology – Heather Roan Robbins & Saleem Adam Wolter @ Holistic Gateway
Mar 18 @ 11:15 AM – 4:45 PM

Be a planet, act out a chart, and watch astrology breathe and come alive. We’ll start with a walking meditation based on the Sufi walks of the planets and embody each to warm up. Then, working on a zodiac on the floor, participants become Sun, Moon or planet (or stay as observer if they prefer) we’ll pick a handful of charts to work on, let the planets channel through us and interview each character to find out what it feels like to square Saturn, trine Pluto, or dangle out there lonely and un-aspected. Get a visceral feel for the interaction of aspects. Come with a question! The chart holder can ask questions of their planets and brainstorm with them to solve dilemmas. We can deepen our understanding of the charts dynamics whatever our level of astrological understanding. 

*** Note: Bring a lunch! This workshop includes a lunch break. Holistic Gateway has a kitchen, including a fridge for storing your lunch, and a stove for heating it up.

*** Note: Acting out a chart is on a volunteer basis. All are welcome to participate and learn.
