Chinese Astrology: 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep @ Joyce Beers Community Center (between Panera and Aladdin's)
Mar 13 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Note: Due to illness, our previously scheduled speaker, Arielle Guttman, is unable to be with us in March. We wish her a speedy recovery and hope she will be able to join us at a later date.

dstellhornSheep? Goat? Ram? What is 2015 all about? Our March speaker, Donna Stellhorn, will show how the energy of these three animals blend to give us the update for the year. And how, through stories, myth and sayings, we can see how this energy will unfold in the world and for ourselves individually.

Donna will also be looking at each sign and giving predictions for 2015. Chinese Astrology is made up of 12 signs and five elements. How your natal animal signs interact with the transiting signs tells us how your year will go. And then, through simple changes in your environment using Feng Shui principles, you can change periods of negative luck into positive. Donna will discuss what 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep has in store for each sign and which signs will fare well. She will also help those having a harder time and describe what to do to turn luck to positive.

Fifth House: Karmic Dates and Momentary Mates @ Joyce Beers Community Center (between Panera and Aladdin's)
Apr 10 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

jessica-shepherdThe one-night stand, the fling, the one that got away, the unrequited love affair… all are common expressions of the astrological fifth house. What is the purpose of these short-term relationships? Is there one – besides having your socks knocked off, your world spun upside down and your heart blown open?

Karmic Dates and Momentary Mates sheds light on your favorite “time of life” relationships, their joys, drama, and karma (hint: it’s hidden behind all that fun) as well as the key to its resolution. In this lecture, using celebrity and client examples, we’ll explore planets in the fifth house. Learn how to spot the key signs that you’re dating your mate of the moment, not a life partner, and when to love and when to let go.

Jessica Shepherd has studied and practiced modern astrology since 1992. She specializes in applying her astrological knowledge to counseling people through transition, personal growth & awakening.
