2023 Year of the Water Rabbit: The Year of Rest, Recovery and Preparations for the Storm Ahead.
2023 brings the healing and restful energy of the Water Rabbit. This year there is an emphasis on home, family, and community (which, in this case, means "people you already know"). There's a desire to sit back and lick the wounds from the previous year. 2023 will be about self-expression, creativity, spirituality, and stockpiling the necessary supplies and skills for the storm that's just visible on the horizon (2025 and 2026). In this lecture, we will take a look at the water Rabbit year combined with Western astrology to see what opportunities 2023 brings for each sign. And we'll talk about what you do in 2023 and 2024 set yourself up for success in 2025 and 2026.

Astrological magic as a practice of healing
Description: In this introductory talk, we will discuss what astrological magic is and how it can be used for growth, healing, and for attracting something we desire. Participants will be introduced to the basic principles of astrological magic: elections and ritual. While a vast subject, special emphasis in this talk will be how magic can become a healing practice for the practitioner.

“Comments on the Cosmos 2023.” with Mount Shasta Astrologer Glenn Arthur Kaufmann
Glenn has always loved transits and has spent over four decades analyzing and understanding how they play out in our lives - correlating them to events that happened to his family and friends, community, and the world at large. Chalk it up to 5 planets in his 3rd house. The perpetual student. From traditional interpretations to the mystical, come sit with him, as He tells you much of what He has learned, and observed, about astrological transits and what we can expect from them in 2023 and beyond.
A double Scorpio with Uranus Rising, Glenn was drawn early on to the Arcane Arts. Transiting Pluto truly tells Glenn’s story. At 17, when Pluto entered his 3rd, Glenn delved into the world of Psychology and Music. When Pluto conjunct his Mars in 1979, he moved across the country to Los Angeles, and was immediately immersed in what would turn out to be a 5-year long initiation into the Astrological Arts and Sciences. By the time Pluto passed over his natal Jupiter and conjunct his Sun, Mercury, Neptune stellium in Scorpio in 1984, he had studied with a number of the world’s best Astrology teachers; Liz Greene, Richard Idemon, Jim Lewis, Jayj Jacobs, and many more. He became a public advocate for Astrology, serving as Vice-President of NCGR in Northern California, an AFAN Coordinator, AFAN Steering Committee member, and getting quoted in the San Francisco Chronicle. His free astrology hotline, The Astrologer’s Referral, information, & Events Service, or A.R.I.E.S. Network, was the to-go place for all things Astrology in the San Francisco Bay Area. Then, as Pluto hit his Moon, North Node, & Nadir in Scorpio, Glenn packed it all up, and moved to remote, other-worldly, mystical Mount Shasta, California, where he has now lived since 1988, teaching classes, and consulting with clients across four continents.
