More details to follow. Space is limited.

The Great American Eclipse

Great American Eclipse

This is what the upcoming August 21st eclipse is being referred to—and for good reason. This eclipse will traverse the United States, entering at the NW corner in Oregon and leaving at the SE corner in South Carolina. It will be a total eclipse of the Sun, visible in thirteen states. All thirteen of these states are already anticipating millions of people arriving to bear witness to this very unusual and spectacular event.

Astrologers are abuzz with this eclipse for many reasons. One is that there is a body of knowledge, written by ancient astrologers, that a solar eclipse over the land can have severe consequences for the land and its King (or leader). Furthermore, in the chart of the President, this eclipse is tightly conjunct both his natal Mars (warrior energy) and his natal Ascendant (physical body).

In Santa Fe, the eclipse will not be total, but viewers will be able to enjoy approximately 80% coverage. Four days prior to the August 21st event, I will be hosting an Eclipse Workshop with visiting astrologer, Alexandra Karacostas (Chico, CA).

Join us for a lively discussion of the eclipse and how it will impact our country, our president and ourselves. For each participant who registers early, your chart will be drawn up and we will highlight for you the area of the eclipse’s impact in your life.

Here is the flyer for the event

Embracing Venus And Her Star


What Is The Venus Star Point®? It is a powerful and ground-breaking tool, never before utilized in astrology. Your Venus Star Point reveals the secrets of your heart as defined by Venus, planet of love, in combination with the Sun, giver of life and light. No prior knowledge of astrology is necessary to gain meaningful and life-changing insights from the Venus Star and your personal connection to it.

Embracing Venus and her Star
We will learn how this important energy—the Venus Star—affects Earth and how we can embrace the energy personally, connecting ourselves to the rhythm of Venus, planet of love. We will also gain an understanding of how the planet Venus is intricately connected to the Mayan calendar date of 2012.
Discovering Your Venus Star Point
This workshop will introduce the Venus Star theory, which examines the influence of Venus and her five-pointed star. We will look at the dynamics of this star, its timeline and impact on historical cycles, how it affects our present timeline of world events and how it reflects the very transitional period we are presently experiencing.

We will also identify our own personal relationship to the Venus Star and what that means for us individually, our relationships and our life’s motivating principles.

We will close with the Venus Star posture, a mudra that allows us to link directly to Venus’ five-fold rhythm.
