From discovering your astrological chart to carpentry projects, our leisure series courses cover a variety of interesting topics.
Astrology Birthchart Workshop
Explore your personalized birth chart through this interactive workshop. While you share certain personality traits with others born with the same Sun Sign, the Sun is only one of the planets in your astrological chart, and there are many other features that describe your qualities and talents. Your birth chart is unique to you. You must pre-register for this course by March 12, 2020 to allow time for your personalized materials to be prepared. Once registered, you will be contacted for the following information: date, location and time of your birth. (If you do not have the exact birth time, an approximation within 2 hours will be fine, but this information is essential to the accuracy of your chart and your participation in the workshop).
