26 Dec

Holiday Greetings, dear Astro~News Friends!

As 2017 is nearing, and MERCURY retro in CAP gives an incentive to be organized – here’s the no-frills overview of DATES for Eclipses, New Moons, and significant motions, by planet.
For a more ‘fleshed out’ version, check out the New Year’s blog, or come to the 2017 Parlour on Dec 29 where we check out significant 2017 transits for all participants. 🙂

Maybe you’d like to learn the Foundations of Astrology in 2017? We have space for you in our 5-week class that starts on Jan 5 (participation in person or via skype / messenger)!
