For anyone local to Ulster County, NY, I’m excited to announce that I will be giving a talk on eclipses at RosenSpace (402 Main Street, Rosendale NY 12472) at 5 pm on Saturday, August 19th – just two days before the “Great American Eclipse” of August 21 sweeps over the USA’s heartland. If you’ve been following my blog over the last few weeks, you’ll know that this event caps an eventful lunar cycle that kicked off with a New Moon in Leo on July 23rd, followed by a Lunar (=Full Moon) Eclipse in Aquarius , on August 7th. I’m giving it a rather lofty title: “Letting the Lion Roar! An Astrological Perspective on the Great American Eclipse – Aug. 21, 2017” – but I’m designing the content and charging a modest fee that should hopefully make it accessible to anyone who wishes to attend.
During this talk, we will discuss the basic astronomical setup of eclipses, but will mainly focus on their astrological symbolism – in particular, some noteworthy links between the August 21 eclipse, and the charts of the USA and world leaders (Leo – the sign of the Lion – is a traditional signifier for royalty, heads of state, and related issues regarding the governance of nations). Following this presentation, we will have an opportunity to briefly study participants’ natal charts to see what area of their lives the energy of this solar eclipse might affect. Note: Birth date & time needed for natal chart analysis.
See you there!
