Astrology Week May 21- 28

By Golden Door

ASTROLOGY WEEK: May 21 – 28, 2017

Join us for a very special week among the stars with  California-based astrologer Alex Bunshaft.

“We are born at a given moment in a given place and like vintage years of wine we have the qualities of the year and of the season in which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.” –C.G. Jung

In addition to your full Golden Door program, join in daily talks that revolve around you and your birth chart.

 

Monday - A Look at Your Birth Chart, Your Zodiac

You are one-of-a-kind. You are unique. How many times have you been asked, “What sign are you?” You are being asked, “What is your Sun Sign?” The Sun Sign is the heart of the chart, but it’s far from the whole story. There are many components in the chart that work together to make you who you are. We will take a look at your chart.

 

Tuesday - Your Lucky Stars

Fixed stars are the earliest form of Astrology. As far back as recorded history the astrologer-astronomer priests in ancient societies looked to the heavens and studied the Fixed Stars—stars that never seem to move. From these observations, they noted that certain stars brought wealth, fame, and ease. For example, Jackie O. had Regulus, the Star of Royalty, prominent in her chart. She was America’s queen. We will look at the lucky stars in your chart.

 

Wednesday - Your Rising Sign: The First Impression You Make

The Rising Sign is the beginning of your chart. It’s how you behave when you first meet someone. Do people ever say to you, “Gee now that I’ve gotten to know you, you’re not anything like I thought you were.” People form opinions about us based on our rising sign that are just the surface of who we are. We will look at your Rising Sign and talk about how you initially present yourself.

 

The rest of the week- Private sessions with Alex may be scheduled on a limited basis
(50 minutes / $200). To book, please call ext. 4157 or stop by Guest Services.

 

 

About Alex:

Alex Bunshaft is a California-based astrologer. She believes that astrology is a tool to help people understand the cycles of growth in their lives, and should be used in a practical, down-to-earth fashion.

She is a member of the National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR), a non-profit organization dedicated to raising the standards of astrological education and research.
