Greg Bogart - Astrology and Dreams

In this workshop you'll experience how astrology and dreamwork can be combined into a transformative spiritual practice. Dream symbols closely reflect our natal and transiting planets. We'll consider the meaning of dreams occurring during particular transits and progressions, and how planetary and dream archetypes manifest in waking life. Decoding the messages of dreams and transits together generates a potent broth of upsurgent feelings, pressing tasks, and energies rising within us in conscious response to change.

Arielle Guttman - The Venus Star Point
