Quite legitimately indulge in two (two!) whole days of thinking about yourself - without feeling guilty. No matter whether you just want to dip your toe into your very own personal Astrology, or dive deep, there’ll be plenty of time to absorb, comment, question and ponder without being overwhelmed. No previous astrology experience or knowledge is needed.

Over the weekend, you will...

  • learn to navigate your way around your birth chart (and because it’s a circle, it’s easy),
  • find out what parts of your life are most impacted by the planets - and what those influences are;
  • uncover what your chart says about the Big Four - your Health, Career, Love Life and Money;
  • hear how astrology easily explains things like the Terrible Twos, why life seems so complicated around age 28 - 30 and again around 60, and the dissatisfaction and questioning of your purpose around age 40;
  • discover once and for all how to make that old chestnut, the Mercury retrograde, work for you; and
  • laugh at how well your birth chart really does reflect you!

Written notes, and morning and afternoon teas, supplied. You will need to bring, or buy, your lunch.

Cost: $153 (can be paid in 2 equal payments of $76.50). Please call me or email me (andreapickford@gmail.com) to register your interest and for further details.

Email Address/Website:  auricmagnetichealing@gmail.com / www.magnetichealers.org.nz

“Golden Touch Healers” are a group of people who are trained in and practice Auric Magnetic Healing; and based in Palmerston North.

Our aim is to educate people, to understand how we can help alleviate pain and suffering for both people and animals.

We don’t need to know what is wrong with a patient, as our hands are drawn to the affected area in their energy field, clearing the blocks and repairing areas of the auric layers and physical body.

Patients often experience tingling, coolness, warmth, waves, pulling or drawing sensations. They also report having a sense of feeling lighter as a result of a session.

It is a complementary modality and works well alongside medical treatment.

Bring something to lie on (yoga mat or similar), warm socks, blanket and pillow for a restorative sound meditation at the end.
