Rio Olesky's Annual Astrological Evening

The recent United States’ election sent shock waves throughout the world. How and why was this the outcome? What is likely to happen as a result? Was this event a reaction to the planetary alignments of the mid-1960’s? How can we, individually and collectively, respond creatively to these events? To answer these questions Rio will discuss:

  • The ongoing influence of the Uranus-Pluto square
  • Pluto opposing the United States’ Sun and squaring US Saturn
  • The winter T-square involving Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto Saturn completing its journey through Sagittarius
  • Uranus contra-parallel (opposition) Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto
  • The second year of Saturn trine UranusVenus retrograde in Aries and Pisces

Join Rio as he delineates these and other important energy patterns. The focus of the talk will be on understanding the nature of these energies and learning how to work with them to enhance personal growth and consciousness development. He will also discuss how these energetic influences will affect us politically, economically and globally.
