Zodiac Signs Polarities + Lunar Cycles 

Do you ever feel like a bundle of contradictions? Within each of us is a myriad of emotions, thoughts, and ways of being and doing. We can feel an internal pull and tug in different directions – one moment feeling clear headed, going with the flow, and in other moments triggered and emotional. Learning astrology can bring insight on what is happening. In this video, we’ll explore the polarities within the zodiac.

As we look at the zodiac pairs, you may recognize some of the relationships in your life. We’ll consider the age old question, “Do opposites attract?” and if that attraction leads to struggle or finding balance in our relationships.

Then we’ll look to Mama Kia, Grandmother Moon for guidance on working with lunar cycles at the new moon and full moon in a practice that brings harmony within ourselves, our relationships, and in all areas of life (home, work, body, mind, spirit). To add a creative twist to learning astrology, Kathryn Costa’s zodiac stencils make it easy and fun to create zodiac charts to learn about astrology and study the relationships of the 12 zodiac signs. No art experience required.
