This workshop will provide you with a basic sense of astrology—what it truly is, and what it isn’t, from the “evolutionary” perspective. Evolutionary astrology is not predictive fortune telling, but a set of multidimensional principles that incorporate free will and personal responsibility to aid us in the process of living life in a more conscious and intentional way. Through the lens of participant’s birthcharts and with special focus on the sun, moon, and ascendant, we will examine all of the signs of the zodiac, debunking the stereotypes associated with them and exploring their “evolutionary goals.”
For centuries, sailors used the heavens to chart their course. Similarly, the birthchart “map” can guide us on our own unique soul journey, illuminating the often illusive path to authenticity, growth, and happiness. No knowledge of astrology is required for this workshop! Registration includes a copy of your birth chart.
When: Mondays, January 9 – 30 at 7:15 pm
Cost: $50 for 4 week series

It’s that time again… new moon group, this Saturday at Mind Body Fitness Yoga in Greensboro, 2:00. It’s the boisterous, larger-than-life, philosophical, “all-knowing,” (he he) SAG! Come for some fun and expansion, in the spirit of the upcoming new moon energy. (And of course, we’ll also tackle Jupiter and the 9th house). We’ll wrap up our discussions of Sag, Jupiter, and the 9th house with intentions you can set for the Sag new moon ritual.
New moon itself is November 25th, (1:11 AM I believe). Hope to see you there!

“While intellectually we may know we’re all connected, how do we truly make the boundaries between inner and outer, our skin, literally and metaphorically, more porous? How do we embody what we understand intellectually? What are some ways in which we can practice forming one body?” Recorded talk given by Samantha DiRosa, July 24, 2011 at the Church of the Covenant sojourner service in Greensboro, NC.

I will be holding two small workshops at Mind Body Fitness yoga in Greensboro. On Saturday July 30th at 3:00: “Astrology, Karma, and Reincarnation”, a workshop on the north and south node of the birth chart. Knowledge of astrology is recommended, as well as reading Steven Forrest’s Yesterday’s Sky. On Saturday August 27th at 3:00: “Chart Synthesis, Putting it All Together”… reading Steven’s The Inner Sky is highly recommended for this workshop. Workshops will last approximately two hours. One hour prior to the workshop at 2:00 the New Moon group will meet, and all are welcome to attend. July 30th we will discuss the Leo new moon, and for August, the Virgo new moon.

I am presently teaching another six week Introduction to Evolutionary Astrology workshop at Mind Body Fitness yoga:
Introduction to Evolutionary Astrology, May 16–June 20
My daily horoscope (I’m a Sagittarius) tells me today that this next period is about embarking on new projects, but warns me about upcoming financial decisions. While these are often fun to read for many of us, astrology is much more than the daily newspaper horoscope would have us believe. I mean seriously, how can the entire human race be summed up in twelve signs? And I’m a little skeptical that all Sagittarians in the world today will be embarking on new projects and making worrisome financial decisions…then again, that prediction is so general, it can apply to any of us.
As someone who has studied the subject for as long as I can remember, I can testify to the usefulness of astrology as much as I can testify to the problems that can be created when it is used to predict the future or stereotype people. In my workshop, Introduction to Evolutionary Astrology, we will decode, debunk, and demystify stereotypes associated with the zodiac, and examine how astrology, from an “evolutionary perspective” can be a useful life-tool. For centuries, sailors used the heavens to chart their course. Similarly, the birth chart “map” can guide us on our own unique soul journey, illuminating the often-illusive path to authenticity, growth, and happiness.
Throughout our six weeks together, we will examine signs, planets, and houses within the birth chart, focusing on what makes you a unique and distinct person in the world, while emphasizing the soul journey and karmic challenges and lessons. No knowledge of astrology is required for this workshop! Registration includes a copy of your birth chart and the book The Inner Sky, by Steven Forrest.
