Personal Growth Through Natal Chart Astrology with Rachel Melcher
Tuesdays, September 27th, October 25th, and November 29th, 7:00-8:30 p.m.

(NOTE:  Due to Hurricane Ian, the start of this class has been postponed to October 25th.  If you’d like to participate, please register with Rachel by Sunday, October 23rd.)

This free three-part series, held in the Sanctuary, will explore the field of natal chart astrology as a roadmap for introspection and self-empowerment.

What can your birth chart reveal about you? What are the main learning themes of this life? What abilities were you just born with? How do the elements support and guide you? How can you be, at heart, truly yourself? You are invited to come explore the magical implications of your natal astrological chart and to find gentle paths to greater wholeness and balance within yourself and discover how this new view of yourself can empower your work as a Unitarian Universalist.

Registration required. For more information or to sign up, please contact Rachel Melcher. She can be reached at or at (813) 909-3415.
