January 19- Penning the Stars

Astrology has been around for hundreds of years, and it’s only now that many – especially writers – are tapping into it as an established wisdom to better create and write. Does astrology influence your writing style, routine and writing habits? How can you better tap into your writing strengths and weaknesses using astrology as a guide? Workshop attendees will learn more about their planet placements, such as Mercury, the Sun and Moon, and how these influence their writing and living flow. Attendees are encouraged to either bring a natal chart to the workshop, or contact the workshop organizers to provide them with one prior to the workshop.
