Mercury Retrograde, What to Do? w/Bill
Approximately three times a year the planet Mercury moves in a retrograde fashion. All planets go through a retrograde time, but
Mercury in particular has very manifested results. During a retrograde Mercury, lines of communication are affected, usually, but not
always, in an adverse way.  You may be speaking English, and although your audience is speaking English, the two forms don’t
necessarily match up, thereby complicating communications. If left unattended, these miscommunications will leave a wake of “Oops’s”
that may have dire and disastrous consequences. So when are these retrograde cycles? Why do we get approximately three a year?
And, most importantly, what can be done about it?  Communication is one of the largest facets of the human experience, and this class
will cover what to do to maximize the true potential that is there and minimalize any problems that may arise. This class is intended to
offer tools and tips, wit and wisdom, and helpful handouts that can assist us all during these opportunities. 7-9 pm, $25

Saturday, August 27

Elements & Astrology w/Bill

reality? This class is meant to address the many different facets of each element, and how an understanding of this can produce a better
understanding of the world around us, and how to synthesize this into our spiritual path and growth. 2 hrs, 7 – 9 pm, $25
