International Women's Day

International Women's Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women's Day is a national holiday.

Suffragettes campaigned for women's right to vote. The word 'Suffragette' is derived from the word "suffrage" meaning the right to vote. International Women's Day honors the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women's success, and reminds of inequities still to be redressed. The first International Women's Day event was run in 1911.

Women and the Astrology of 2012 with astrologer Rhea Wolf

How can astrology be used as a tool to find greater harmony with yourself and the planets? What is the emergence of the dark feminine in 2012, why must we listen to her and understand what she wants? How do we connect with our own inner genus, and how will our perceptions of gender be affected by Venus and Mars in Retrograde this year?

Portland based astrologer, writer and teacher, Rhea Wolf, will discuss these themes in the context of 2012's astrological events. Both feminine and masculine archetypes will be examined as Rhea reveals helpful tips for creating cosmic alignment, connecting with the rising feminine energies of the time, and deepening the power and awareness in each and every one of us.
