Casting Signs:
A Magical Online Course following the Moon through the Zodiac

NEWIG advertisement for Casting Signs

WHEN:  April 15th – June 16th
WHERE:  Online
COST:   Sliding scale $150 – $70. You decide where you slide.

A Witch pays attention. A Witch works with natural cycles and crafts Magic in relationship to the Earth. Witches have always had a natural affinity with the Moon. The Moon is core to our Magic. The Moon guides the way into magical and spiritual relationship with life.

This online course taught by Teri Parsley Starnes and Vasalisa TheWitch provides the opportunity to pay attention and form deeper relationship to Earth and Sky through following the Moon through two lunar cycles. The first cycle, we pay attention to each sign of the zodiac as the Moon moves through that sign for 2 ½ days. The following lunar cycle we will set intention and be guided by the Moon as our intention evolves through the wisdom provided by the 8 phases of the Moon.

Through these practices, participants will acquire a deeper understanding of the framework of the zodiac and the power of the lunar cycle for setting and manifesting intention. Magic requires intention. Intention requires action. Astrology’s framework helps us to align our actions with the energy present in the moment. Guided by the Moon we become aware of deeper patterns in our souls and deeper desires for our journeys. This framework helps us become part of the web of interconnection.
We join with rather than fight against the things life offers us.
