The workshop will take place as a webinar, so that you can attend wherever you are. And if you cannot be present, or you can only do part of the workshop, you will receive an audio-visual presentation, audio MP3, and extensive handouts. 

This class is appropriate for those who are starting at the beginning, or for those who have studied with me, or have learned in the past, and want to refresh your knowledge. We will start with the basics of the chart, so that you have all the tools you need to begin to tackle chart interpretation.

    Webinar on the Second Half of 2020.

    Held on Sunday, June 7, 11 am-12:30 pm EDT and included a quick review of the astrology ahead. I will talk about the next five eclipses, Venus and Mars retrograde, Jupiter-Pluto, and finally the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction. And how we connect the dots of all these back to that Saturn-Pluto conjunction. This will be conducted in Western and Indian astrology. This will not be political nor am I going to speak about personal charts or necessarily make finite predictions, especially about when the pandemic will end, and when the economy will recover, since that will continue well into 2021 in my opinion. Recordings and handouts will be sent within 48 hours of payment.
