Astrology Trends for 2018: The Redefining-Ourselves Year (and the Year of the Retrogrades, so that will be fun, too)

Presented by Christopher Largent

Christopher Largent, Astrology workshop, Autumn Goddess Retreat FestivalIn Earth’s Great Transformation, 2018 stands out. It represents (1) redefining our deepest senses of identity (the retrogrades of spring and summer) and (2) rethinking our relationships (the retrogrades of autumn). It’s also the year that we can claim the power of the Great Transformation: our inner lives, which reflect the power of the whole of reality itself. Just in case this sounds too serious, there’s a great celebration at the end of the year — with lots of fun-potential.

Christopher Largent taught university-level philosophy and comparative religion for forty years and has lectured widely in the United States and Canada, including at the New York Open Center and the Omega Institute. He’s also been a book editor, marketing manager, bank branch manager, and business and government consultant.

Chris co-authored The Soul of Economies, The Paradigm Conspiracy, and Love, Soul, and Freedom (on the mystic path) — books praised by the Dalai Lama, Stephen Covey, and Marianne Williamson — and contributed to From the Ashes, A Spiritual Response to the Attack on America: Experience, Strength, and Hope from Spiritual Leaders and Extraordinary Citizens. He is the author of the 11th-Century historical novel, Tapestry, and The Best Advice in History: Epictetus’ Manual for Living.  Chris has his transformative-psychological astrology practice in Kennett Square, PA and teaches there at his own Seventh Academy
