This writing session will focus on the words “consider” and “disaster,” both of which have etymological roots back to the word “star.” As we consider the current planetary placements, we will reflect on what is moving in our personal lives so as to avoid “disaster.” This workshop will include a mix of quiet, solo writing time and collaborative, playful writing activities.

In this workshop, we will pay special attention to (or: consider!) the planetary energies specific to the Full Moon in Capricorn (July 21, 2024) and discuss how writers are influenced by the Moon. As well, the writing prompts will be inspired by Mercury’s transit through the sign of Leo (July 2 - 25th and August 14 - September 9, 2024) and discuss how writers are influenced by Mercury.

This workshop is designed for people who are brand new to astrology as well as those who consider themselves advanced astrology practitioners. And the writing portion of this workshop is open to all types of writers -- poetry, prose, the experienced, and the excited. The energy of this workshop is full of curiosity, play, wonder, and open dialogue.

By the end of this workshop, you will have a greater understanding of the influence of Full Moons, your own moon sign in your birth chart, and where the signs of Capricorn and Leo are in your birth chart and how it influences writing in your life. Be ready to share your birth place, date, and time – if you so choose — in order to participate fully in some of the writing prompts.
