New Monthly Workshop: A Look at the Month Ahead

Diane Trimbath

Diane Trimbath

Join Diane Trimbath to learn about new opportunities or “shifts-of-focus” in store for us each month, as she reviews the energies coming in from our sky in IAA’s new monthly series, “A Look at the Month Ahead.” Find out “how,” “when,” and “where” these changes may influence YOUR life (based on your Sun sign). Includes the monthly astrological forecast of significant planetary and zodiacal changes, retrogrades, alignments, and “energetic shifts” throughout the month. Also includes the New Moon chart analysis and its anticipated expression unfolding. Learn of key dates and significant transits to watch for, and how “the stars” may influence YOUR weeks ahead (based on your Sun sign).

Diane will be holding these meetings once a month, but registration for each meeting is separate — you do not need to sign up for the entire series or make any long-term commitment. Everyone is welcome, you do not need any astrological background to participate. Visit the registration page to see the scheduled dates.
