What to do when Progressed Mercury Changes Signs or Houses, Turns Retrograde or Goes Direct[/b]

"What did you say? What do you mean?"

This is an exploration of what happens when we begin to think, talk, observe and develop a new perspective as a result of a progressed Mercury change. It can be awkward, frustrating and even downright embarrassing as we try to express ourselves in a way that is unfamiliar. This lecture is chock-full of real-life stories (both famous and not; names will be changed when necessary to protect an identity) that bring this shift vividly to life. It will help attendees learn to both identify the evolving Mercury needs of their clients, friends and themselves. My goal is to help them learn how to optimize all aspects of the experience.

About the speaker: Joyce Van Horn:

"When I was a kid growing up in nearby Burlingame, I used to gaze at the night sky for hours. I knew that it was speaking to me but couldn't yet understand its language. I knew that the cosmos had meaning. Once I began studying astrology at the age of 12, it became a grand obsession and undying love.

"I've been a full-time, professional astrologer in San Francisco since 1984. I am an second-level certified Evolutionary Astrologer (as trained by Steven Forrest) with active clientele in the United States and Canada. One of my greatest loves is teaching all levels of Evolutionary Astrology: beginning, intermediate and advanced. Additionally, I lecture to professional organizations and offer astrological workshops. Since September 2006, I have co-facilitated the ongoing Northern California Steven Forrest Apprenticeship Retreat twice yearly. Over the years I've authored several astrology columns and articles. One of my articles was accepted and published by The Mountain Astrologer. I am a member of NCGR, AFAN and SFAS."
