Perspectives for 2018

Rio Olesky's Annual Astrological Evening

Wildfires and hurricanes. Threats of nuclear war. The cultural wars are more extreme. Sexual harassment abounds. Welcome to 2018! The planetary alignments for the year provide clues about what to expect as well as ways to respond in order to promote peace and well being for all.

In this year's talk, Rio will provide perspective about these astrological issues:

  • The continued affects of the Uranus-Pluto square
  • The transit of Saturn into Capricorn
  • The transit of Uranus into Taurus
  • The five outer planets all transiting through yin signs
  • Venus and Mars transiting retrograde
  • The solar eclipse in February opposing the eclipse point of August 2017

Join Rio as he delineates these and other important energy patterns. The focus of the talk will be on understanding the nature of these influences and learning how to work with them to enhance personal growth and consciousness development. He will also discuss how the transits could affect us politically, economically and globally.
