Your natal chart is like an illustration on a seed packet, showing the ravishing flower you could potentially become. But just as harsh weather or poor cultivation affect a garden, planetary transits track the external forces that impact your development. To reach your full potential requires that you respond to these forces with creativity and heart. Secondary progressions trace the inner journey of your soul’s unfolding toward your potential and offer guidance for handling the toughest transits.

The Way of the Dragon – Eclipse and Eclipse Cycle Workshop with Gemini Brett
Discover new light in the shadow of eclipses and eclipse cycles. Tune into the mysteries of the prenatal eclipse and prenatal syzygy and learn how those power point alignments of Sun, Moon, and Earth are stimulated through Metonic Cycle and Saros Series reactivations. Investigate the power of eclipse paths and deepen your understanding of the Lunar Nodes, Black Moon Lilith, and Nodal Returns and Reversals through live chart examples. All aboard for a magical mystery tour with the Dragons who consume the Sun and Moon. 
The workshop will be from 3- 6 pm followed by eating and visiting time (BYO dinner or something to share), and at approx. 7:15 pm Brett will conduct the “Night Sky Training” session, weather permitting.
Night Sky Training with Gemini Brett
Our night sky session will begin with the Full Moon rising at Sunset. As Sun sinks deeper into the sixth house and the stars come out to play, we’ll spend some time with evening star Mercury who (clouds allowing) will be at absolute maximum visibility. (more…)

November 17 – Gemini Brett: What in the Heavens is the Zodiac?

What in the Heavens is the Zodiac?

Sunday, November 17, 2019
2 – 5 pm

Sylvan Community Center
7521 Community Drive, Citrus Heights

Many astronomers say astrology is nonsense because the tropical Signs do not align to the constellations as they did in Hellenistic times. Astrologers often respond by claiming the tropical archetypes are about seasonal energies, not about constellations, but if this is so we should flip the Signs for the southern hemisphere and we don’t. If the Tropical Zodiac is not of the Stars and not of the Seasons, then just what in the Heaven’s is it? In this ground-fixing presentation, Gemini Brett solves this riddle by presenting the Directional Zodiac. You will leave this talk with knowledge that will not only assist you in defending the Tropical Zodiac from astronomer’s attacks, but will empower you with the knowledge of the beautiful astronomical concepts it seems they have chosen to forgot. Most importantly, a deeper connection to the sacred astronomy of astrology will expand your archetypal awareness, deepen your delineations, and offer an antenna that will allow you to receive direct transmissions from the ancient wisdom traditions.

“Wow, just wow! Gemini is a powerful speaker, storryteller, weaver of myths, legends, lore, and science. His talk was spellbinding and really made me understand and feel my connections to the stars and planets. Wonderful presentation!” – Suzanne A., Denver, CO (more…)
