The Moon & You: Astrology as Self-Care Workshop

Friday, April 7 from 2-3pm at Eclectic (200 High St.)

Interested in astrology and want to know how to use it to take care of yourself and be in touch with your emotional needs? Join WesWell and CAPS to learn more about the moon in astrology, do some journal prompts, and to engage in discussion and experiential activities. Please know your moon sign ahead of time ( you can try astro.com or astro-seek.com to find out your moon sign by generating your natal chart.) PS – it’s happening the day after the Full Moon in Libra, so you’ll be in your feelings anyway — you might as well come along…
