Dennis Flaherty: The Eastern Moon Through Western Eyes

  • Subud Center 3185 Northeast Regents Drive Portland, OR, 97212 United States (map)

Saturday Workshop

This workshop will present a comprehensive analysis of the Moon, and explain why this planet is considered the most important planet in Indian Astrology.  The Moon represents the fertile ground of consciousness upon which the drama of life is perceived.  Understanding the Moon’s sign, planetary combinations and phase of fullness, as well as its sidereal lunar mansion is to truly walk a mile in another person’s mind and perceive the potential of their destiny through their eyes.  Whether you are an eastern or a western astrologer this class will explain everything about the Moon from an east/west perspective and why it considered the primary planet of consciousness in Vedic astrology. You would have to be a lunatic to miss this class! Dennis will draw from his 1997 anthology; the Eastern Moon Through Western Eyes, published by Samuel Weiser. 

Location: 3185 NE Regents Dr., Portland, OR 97212 (SUBUD Center)
