Eclipse Season Grand Finale – This Wednesday
“it is our ignorance of the dark, which is the gateway between death and birth, that gives rise to our fears and contributes to our pain.”
– Demetra George, Mysteries of the Dark Moon
We’re nearing the grand finale of this summer’s Eclipse Season — the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on August 5. A Lunar Eclipse is a super-potent Full Moon, featuring a rising tide of emotional energy, high pressure, and opportunities for revelation and breakthrough.
At the Lunar Eclipse — when the Earth’s shadow blocks out the light of the Moon — we are confronted with our fear of the dark. The Full Moon that typically lights up the night sky turns a bloody red and darkens, leaving us in the shadows. Even if the Eclipse isn’t visible where you live, the influence is still palpable.

Re-Writing the Wounds of the Spirit
a women’s astrology and Sacred Story workshop
with Emily & Dawn
SAT 8/15 10am-2pm
in Multnomah Village
2009 features a rare conjunction of Chiron, Neptune and Jupiter, offering opportunities for healing wounds of the Spirit. These “Neptunian” wounds often take the form of addictions, victimization, illusions and fantasies – ways that we unconsciously remain stuck in our limited beliefs and perspectives.
In this workshop, we will use astrology to explore these wounded places from an archetypal perspective and within a larger framework of collective transformation. We’ll also look at where this “Super Conjunction” is happening in your personal birth chart, identifying which areas of your life are calling for healing and growth.
We will use Sacred Story work – a technique involving guided visualization and writing to recreate our lives – to rewrite these old stories of our wounded self and to call in a more liberating story of our inner power and connection with Spirit.
All women are welcome; no previous writing or astrology experience needed.

Women’s Writing & Astrology Retreat
Archetypes of Feminine Power:
Reclaiming the Dark
with Emily & Dawn
at Silver Falls
In the magical forest of Silver Falls, we meet at the Dark of the Moon – traditionally a time for healing, renewal and regeneration.
Looking at the Moon in our individual birth charts, we’ll explore how feminine archetypes appear and operate in our own lives, and identify the “shadow” aspects of our own expression of the feminine. We’ll use Sacred Story work – a technique using guided visualization and writing to recreate our lives – to reclaim our power from these denied and unconscious parts of ourselves.
We’ll also examine the significance of the Dark Goddess in the context of collective transformation. Approaching the end-date of the 26,000-year Mayan Calendar, we are all now in a “Dark Moon” phase – a time for releasing and transforming structures, systems and ways of being that no longer serve us. In this time of ever-quickening growth and change, how do our individual stories intersect with the unfolding collective drama?
All women are welcome – no previous astrology or writing experience is needed.
