Meeting “The One”: Charts of Important First Meetings @ Joyce Beers Community Center (between Panera and Aladdin's)
Mar 10 @ 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm

april elliott kentWill you recognize the love of your life the moment you meet? Have you already met them without knowing it? And what if you were born on opposite sides of the world—what mighty astrological forces will it take to bring you together?

For years, clients have asked me when they might meet The One. I’ve never been fully convinced that there is one single person in all the world that’s meant for each of us, let alone one perfect moment when we’re destined to meet. But I’ll admit that I’m fascinated by the cosmic mechanics that somehow, against all odds, place two human beings in one another’s paths at just the right moment so that they can meet, and their story together can begin.

So, I asked people about their relationships. I looked at many, many charts of lovers and their first meetings, searching for common threads and reliable answers. And in this lecture, I incur the wrath of the relationship gods by trying to decode their wily methods of throwing two people together. What does it look like, in our birth charts and in the chart of that momentous first encounter, when worlds collide and we meet The One?

Chiron: Key to Our Careers with guest speaker Aubrie DeClerck @ Joyce Beers Community Center (between Panera and Aladdin's)
Apr 14 @ 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us. ― David Richo

When looking at a chart for the root cause of pain at work, we might first investigate Saturn in the natal chart or by transit, or look at the 2nd, 6th and 10th houses for clues. But whether the pain is associated with a layoff, conflict on the job, or lack of direction for a career change, I invite you to expand your search just a little bit beyond Saturn - to Chiron. Its natal placement and transiting journey through the birthchart symbolize a powerful pathway to motivation, confidence and right action.

In this interactive talk, we will:

  • explore Chiron’s telltale characteristics as applied to our work lives.
  • look at practical actions we can take in response.
  • learn how to actively use Chiron energy to identify our gifts and work with our inner challenges.

Starting with the Greek myth, and then moving into modern day archetypes and client examples, we will gain context for how Chiron operates as a catalyst, an invitation for positive change.  From the big picture of purpose at work to job search activities such as answering interview questions, Chiron can help.  Bring your questions and experience, and take practical ideas home with you!
