THEME: Astronomy & Astrology: What we observe and what we experience


Often we see the stars in a materialistic way and miss the depth of meaning implicit in the universe. The ancients saw the same sky much as we see it now, but their interpretation of the heavens was full of inner significance. Let’s enquire together into the relationship between science and spirit and how the two have connections that ultimately bring meaning to our lives.
