Chiron and the Minor Planets: Then and Now – ERIC FRANCIS
Astrological consideration of minor planets is different than at its origin decades ago. Astrology went from four asteroids in the ‘60s to about a million minor bodies orbiting our Sun in 2023. We are nearly one Chiron cycle (50-ish years) into the minor planet era. How does astrology work with this? Astrological author and podcaster Eric Francis will provide a framework of ideas and a basic approach in this discussion. For pre-reading, see his article “Beyond the Veil” in The Mountain Astrologer, http://planetwaves.net/pdf/1012TMAcoppolino.pdf.  Via Zoom only. Contact: (860) 568-8617, info@myasc.org, https://myasc.org/
Time: 6:15 p.m. pre-lecture; 7 p.m. lecture    Cost: Free for ASC members, $10 for non-members (use Donation button at https://myasc.org)

AVON – Beloved Companions
Pet Loss Grief Group – DORY DZINSKI, LPC
Our pets are our hearts. They are an indelible part of the fabric of our lives. When they leave us, the hole is nearly unbearable. However, the loss of a companion animal is a marginalized loss. Unless one has been lucky enough to experience the love of an animal, it is difficult to understand this loss. We may hear comments and questions that don’t match our feelings and we cannot find many places that will hold space for our pain. Come be with others who have sustained the loss of a beloved companion. I have been been facilitating grief support groups for over 14 years. For this group, there is simple sharing and holding space for one another. The topics are open-ended and respected. All levels of participation are honored. **We will not meet if there is a snow storm – call me by 6pm if you’d like to doublecheck. You can also find out by looking at the FB post, which will be updated with “CANCELLED” if that is the case. There is no charge but registration is requested – please call me at (860) 693-2840 or email at dorydzinski@comcast.net. Second and Fourth Wednesdays of the month.
