Astrology: Mapping out your inner blueprint

Teacher: Corinna Botoulas and Margarita Celeste
Cost: 2 days’ accommodation + R250 surcharge
Dates: Friday 16 November 2018 - Sunday 18 November 2018

corrinamargarita-celesteDiscover your intrinsic Nature and Nurture through the planets and stars in this informative Astrological workshop. Learn how the cycles of the celestial world affect you personally, and how your unique blueprint – your Astrological birth chart - can help you live to your fullest potential. Find your strengths, challenges and which areas of life to empower and enable us and live with greater equanimity and awareness. Astrology is an ancient, powerful, well-tested and insightful tool to foster emotional and mental growth and transformation. The retreat will focus on the role of fate and free will, the planets in their signs and houses, the aspects they make to each other, the elements and modalities they represent and the importance of the position of the sun and moon in conjunction with the cycles of life. There will be stargazing sessions and sunrise yoga.

Corinna Botoulas trained as a horticulturist and has always worked closely with nature and the environmemt. So it was a natural progression for her to study astrology, to understand the effects the cosmos has on our lives and nature around us. She studied modern astrology with the Cynthia Thorburn School of Astrology, and after completing her certification with the Rod Suskin School of Astrology, she opened her astrological practice.

Margarita Celeste was intuitively drawn to the starry skies from a young age. In 2013, she enrolled for Rod Suskin's three year Diploma course, receiving a scholarship for her final year, after which she studied formally with the School of Intuition and Healing. Her passion is to help and guide others towards a more conscious state of being. She has a deep interest in alternative healing such as reiki, crystal therapy, kinesiology, chakra balance, tachyon healing and life alignment.
