Lecture Title
What is the Heavens is Going On?

Lecture Description
Join me in this mini-lecture is about the connection between the heavens above and their use in understanding our lives on planet Earth.

Your path in life tells a story; a story which can be altered by your own choices, actions or inactions. Astrology is a way, a method, to understand your story and your intimate involvement with your life. This personal storytelling is a key factor in living a deeply fulfilling life. Understanding the cycles in your life is a key in unfolding your story, meeting your challenges and initiating your intentions.

Astrology, though firmly seated in modern therapeutic traditions, has its roots in divination and over 4,000 years of history. I like to think it falls somewhere between the oracles of the ancient world and contemporary psychological counseling.
