George Ward
The Year 2002
Seeking Clarity, Purpose and Peaceful Resolution with Astrology

Interpreting astrological cycles and their influence on our lives and the world can be a complex process. This is especially true during challenging times, when we as humans tend to focus on reacting to problems and placing blame before looking to understand the greater context and significance of the events which appear to shape our lives. Astrology provides tools to help us make choices that are more informed, more conscious, and ultimately, more evolved. It is up to us to ask the bigger questions about the lessons at hand,
rather than accepting our difficulties as blind and random fate.

In this talk we will discuss the astrological 'landscape' for 2002 on both a personal and collective level. We will clarify the surface themes as well as the hidden messages within the planetary archetypes. For example, the current planetary cycle of Saturn opposing Pluto acts as a symbolic catalyst to help us look at issues of fear and power in order to better understand the recent events of 2001 and to prepare for the year ahead. We will also look at the historical context for the Saturn/Pluto cycle and the process of stagnation, destruction and reconstruction currently affecting many of the foundations of our lives. The potential now exists to creatively resolve conflicts.
The flexibility of our perceptions when looking at that which we could not, or would not see before is the key to rebuilding trust, faith and courage in 2002 and beyond.
