Prescription vs Prediction with rachel lang 9 12 22As we move into a new paradigm, we’re more aware of how our thoughts and perceptions shape our lives. Each astrological transit represents a whole spectrum of possibilities. We can help shape the future by how we interpret these symbols and perceive the possibilities they suggest. One way to do this is to look at the overall soul growth themes of our outer planet transits. This course outlines these concepts and provides ways you can work with astrology to help shape your future. You don’t need to have any astrological background for this course — just a willingness to learn and grow. Designed as an interactive course, participants have the opportunity to join in discussions. See below for the course syllabus.
