Wednesdays // October 14 - November 11 // 8:00-9:10 pm (5 sessions)
Do you accept that the moon pulls the tides of the oceans and affects the water on this planet? Of course you do.
And yet many people have trouble believing that when much larger planets align, they have a similar, if not greater pull on the earth and, in turn, human events.
Who Can Benefit:
Anyone who believes in the fact that we are spiritual beings having a material existence.
• 10/14: Lecture 1
Astrology the missing link. Re learning the language of the heavens. What is our connection to the Cosmos and how can we re-establish this vital link? The magic of astrology is to unlock who we are.
In this lecture you will learn the basic concepts of Astrology, through the planetary archetypes. We will constantly be applying this knowledge to the world today so we can better understand this time of transition that we are in.
• 10/21: Lecture 2
In this lecture we will learn what the 12 Zodiac signs are and what their meaning is and how each sign has a unique connection with the planets. What is the connection between the signs and the planets and why does each planet have different zodiacal preferences? We will also look at the principle of element, mode and season, which define the characteristics of the sign.
• 10/28: Lecture 3
What are the four angles and why they play an important role in the analysis and understanding of the chart? We will learn about the ascendent, descendant, midheaven and nadir. In this lecture we will also introduce the principles of the houses, as a method for dividing up the sky at the moment of birth. What does each house represent?
• 11/04: Lecture 4
In this lecture we will look at the aspects that planets make and how they impact not only our individual birth story but the collective field as well. We will look at the idea of how the outer planet alignments during the year of our birth are mirrored in the political developments of that year. Carl Jung, the depth psychologist, said "We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season in which we are born."
We will delve into the current global transits and offer remarks on the US election.each house represent?
• 11/11: Lecture 5
Did the timeline shift in 2016? How relevant is Plato’s Allegory of the Cave? How does it pertain to our current crisis or opportunity depending on one’s perspective and inner reality? We will look at the Saturn/Pluto conjunction of 2020 and see how these alignments now mirror events in the past. What does the future look like as we undergo this epochal change? The end of the Age of Pisces, and the beginning of Aquarius. We will discuss the concept of “freedom” as so many humans up until this point had all but forgotten its true meaning. What is the connection between ‘freedom’ and the ‘collective’ in the new paradigm?

There are many wonderful master teachers of astrology who can enlighten us. But few can call upon so many polymathic skills, talents and lush life experiences to paint such a complete and colorful picture of the art and practice of Astrology as George H. Lewis.
After a classical education in Britain, Lewis set off on a life’s journey to discover and learn from the wealth of human spirituality on display across the globe. In his twenties, he spent many years in the Middle East where for a period he painted for the Royal Court and the Sultan of Oman. George also spent several months living with Bedouins in the deserts of Arabia, learning from their special relationship with the stars. As George, points out, “nighttime, is the daytime of the desert.” And you can see and feel this in Lewis’s masterfully poetic photographs of Middle-Eastern landscapes and his no-less magical Mid-East paintings.
George is an ambassador-at large representing the Kingdom of Bhutan’s policy of “gross national happiness,” a practice now studied and accepted by mainstream Western economists. For a visual tour of George’s time in the Kingdom, see the brilliant photos of that period in his life. Whether it’s ancient temples clinging to a cliff or monks shrouded by a cloud, these are images not to be missed.
George studied under a number of different mentors. Studying the archetypes with Carolyne Myss and holotropic breath work with Jessica Dibb and Stan Grof, among others. His practice, based in New York City, London and at his healing center in upstate New York has counseled hundreds of grateful patients.
Now, in addition to his art, lectures and healing, Lewis has authored and illustrated “The Boy and the Boy King,” published by American University in Cairo Press and available on Amazon, Bookshop.org and other sites and bookstores. According to George, this book — about the majesty of childhood imagination— encapsulates his feelings and ideas about the necessity of spiritual evolution and advancing humanity’s connection to the cosmos. George tells us: “Though you could call it a children’s book, it’s actually a summing up of all my converging ideas and practices. It might better be called a children’s book for all of us.” The illustrations in the book were the basis of a popular exhibition called “May We All Grow Up to be Children” which was extended by popular demand at the Westchester Children’s Museum and Sands Point Preserve Conservancy.
George has also ventured into the decorative arts. Steinway & Sons will soon announce that George’s long-awaited seascape art case piano will go on sale soon.
