Though this summer’s eclipses have garnered a lot more attention recently, two other noteworthy celestial events will dominate astrological discussion this fall: Both Jupiter and Saturn will change signs. We want to hear what you think and offer some insights into these important shifts! At our October meeting, SDAS will present mini-lectures by President April Elliott Kent (on Saturn in Capricorn) and Vice-President Loda Shaw (on Jupiter in Scorpio), who will then lead a group discussion about what these planetary sign changes will mean for you and for the world.

The Moon represents our deepest needs and instincts. We have all been trained to judge and resist these impulses. We generally do not trust the validity of what we desire, and may even doubt our sanity when irrationally drawn to certain things or people. In some cases, we’re wise to steer clear. But much of what we perceive as dark or twisted (in ourselves or others) is actually a cry for help from the parts of us that have long been repressed, denied or shamed.
