A WORKSHOP ON SOLAR ECLIPSES - Priscilla Costello 1.45 PM Sept 30th 2017



Much modern research correlates eclipses with mundane events through history, like earthquakes, important battles, and changes of leadership.  But what do they mean to YOU?  How do they operate in your chart?  You’ll be shown an easy way to plot the sequence of solar eclipses in your horoscope over many years, considering their type, degree emphases, and hits to natal planets and sensitive points.


We’ll look especially at the recent “Great American” eclipse of August 21st, 2017 (and its upcoming companion eclipse in February of 2018).  Why has the recent one received so much publicity?  And do we already see events correlating with it?  We may also look at how the lunar eclipse cycles mesh with the current solar ones. 

You’ll get the most from this workshop if you have some knowledge of the meanings of houses in the horoscope and of key planets.

Priscilla Costello - 'Shakespeare and the Stars'

Shakespeare and the Stars

The Hidden Astrological Keys to Understanding the World's Greatest Playwright by Priscilla Costello, M.A.Honouringthe 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, this book offers fresh and exciting insights into the ever-popular works of the world's greatest playwright. It shows that Shakespeare used astrological symbolism in both obvious and subtle ways. The first half of the book describes the Elizabethan worldview and reveals that the seven known planets were considered an integral part of the cosmos and instrumental in shaping human character. The second half of the book examines six of Shakespeare's best-loved plays in the light of astrological symbolism, showing how they are entirely keyed to a specific zodiacal sign and its associated (or ruling) planet. The chosen plays are A Midsummer Night's Dream, Romeo and Juliet, The Merchant of Venice, Macbeth, The Tempest, and King Lear. Each chapter incorporates information and examples from astrological tradition, classical and Renaissance philosophy, Greek and Roman mythology, esoteric wisdom, modern psychology (especially that of C.G. Jung), and great literature. Thoroughly researched and wellillustrated, this book illuminates the plays from a fresh perspective that will deepen and profoundly transform how we understand them.
