 Mars, the warrior planet of action and energy, is retrograde from April 17 to June 30, 2016. Think of this as the Mars renewal cycle, which happens every two years. In this period Mars will hover over the first one-third of the sign Sagittarius and the last two-thirds of the sign Scorpio, a unique part of the zodiac that houses the archetype of the serpent-bearing healer Ophiuchus. Arielle will discuss the mythological imagery of this sign as well as the astrological implications of how it affects us all. How we will access and use this powerful Martian energy involves an inward journey of courage and strength.

During this program, Tony will be setting the tone for the Mars retrograde cycle through Vedic Mantra offerings rhythmic drumming. Audience members are invited to move to the rhythms. Mars is an archetype of movement and action. Let's embody the the impulses received during this special evening of discussion, music, movement, meditation and ceremony.
