Introduction to Astrology

What's your sign? What does it mean? There are 12 -- and we can give you some insights about your own sign, and the other 11. Astrology is as old as human history, and every culture developed their own interpretation of planetary movements. We demystify the signs, and walk you through the basics of understanding the principles of astrology (the first science, as early practitioners used it for purposes of medical assistance, agricultural guidance, public works and civic discourse and marital prospects!). Sally love teaching this because everyone in the room has an "Aha!" moment.

Sally is a professional teacher and writer (see bio below) that will be teaching this workshop.  Cost will be determine by number of ladies that signed up but should be between $15-$250  As Sally has set aside this time for us and so we can determine the per person price  prior to the event this is NON REFUNABLE.  Please only RSVP if you can attend. Please mail a $10 check payable to Sally Cragan me by 9/28/2013.

Sally Cragin teaches history and writing in the ALFA program at Fitchburg State University.  She is also the author of The Astrological Elements, and Astrology on the Cusp (Llewellyn Worldwide ). She is a columnist for the Boston Phoenix and arts reviews and features have appeared in the Boston Globe, St. Louis Riverfont Times, Yankee Magazine and many other magazines. Her short plays have been produced in New York City (Love Creek Productions), Provincetown and throughout Massachusetts. She has also worked as a script doctor for writer/performers who have presented at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and American Repertory Theatre. She has also taught writing at Harvard Extension School, Webster University (St. Louis) and can be heard every Thursday on WCRN-830 AM at 12:50 commenting on arts/entertainment.

    Many apologies for missing tonight's event. I completely forgot and just realized my emails have been bouncing. Does anyone know how to prevent the bouncing emails? It happens a couple times a month. Arghhh!

    Presenter was very knowledgeable, friendly, and had a great presence. Loved the metaphysical subject matter and hope for more stuff like this that's "new age" or "metaphysical". :)

    We can order dinner or just drinks- that will be up to each person. Please remember that the waitstaff will be serving us and should be compensated for their time and effort even if you don't order off the menu.

  • Judi D

    Sorry- $250 was a big typo. As of right now with the number of people who RSVP the cost should be around $15.

    September 9, 2013

  • Mary J.

    I would like to attend but need to know what the cost will be before I send a non refundable deposit. It says $15 - $250 and $250 would be much higher than I am willing to pay.

      I think that's a typo?? I hope!
