Astrology is an ancient and complex science. Its beauty lies in how it translates the mystical language of the stars for us here on Earth. It begins with an understanding of its four elements; water, air, earth and fire. We are made up of all four of these elements, but they are not always in balance within ourselves. If you are interested in unraveling the mystery of you and gaining a greater understanding on how to balance each, join Debra Silverman on one of her 4-E Retreats.

The Tarot deck is ancient tool from the 15th century using symbols to represent the evolution of consciousness. Not much is known of the Tarot’s history, however the 78 cards of the Tarot deck contain the wisdom of astrology. Carl Jung promoted the belief that symbols were access points into the collective unconscious. In this class we study the meaning of the cards and how to use these as a divination tool.
