Sounds like it’s time for a field trip!
Organization for Professional Astrology (OPA) now has an Eastbay chapter, and we are holding this free event — an exploration of the Caesar E. Chavez Memorial Solar Calendar — on the evening of Saturday, June 15th. You don’t have to be a member of OPA to attend our events, although we highly recommend you check out our organization for all the amazing benefits, quarterly magazine, free lectures and professional support we offer.
The rising of a near-full Moon at 7:30 pm and the setting of a near-solstice Sun an hour later will help Astronomy-for-Astrologers expert Gemini Brett show you how the site works. You will also learn practices for embodying the energies of the cardinal directions and of the phases of the Moon and have a chance to see Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter in the sky with your eyes. OPA is excited to invite you to celebrate the marriage of Heaven and Earth with our cosmic East Bay community.

Who is Gemini Brett??
As a certifiable StarryTeller, Gemini Brett devotes his now as a living vow to the Marriage of Heaven and Earth. He began his formal study with the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School, but has since synthesized his own terrestrially-tuned celestial stew by integrating ingredients from many ancient and modern paradigms. Brett's principle intention is to retrieve the Star Songs heard in times before the written word. He transmits the mysteries he finds in sacred sites and living sky through a system of embodied exercise he calls Earthstrology and through the sacred sciences of the Quadrivium: Geometry, Musical Harmony, Astronomy, and Number in Nature. Gemini Brett is best known throughout cosmic circles as an astronomy-for-astrology expert and mystic mythologist, but the truth you'll find when you get to know this fiery Scorpio is that his techniques are designed to water the heart through re-membering Signs of the Messenger's Mind.
