A Beautiful Death:
Jupiter Enters Scorpio



Join Intuitive Astrologer Virginia Rosenberg and Green Cemetarian/Death Activist Cassie Barrett for a ceremony on conscious death to honor Jupiter's transition from Libra into Scorpio.

Death is not just something that happens to the body - we experience death as a part of life constantly. Death of a relationship. Death of a part of our self or our identity. Death of a habit or behavior. Death of a belief. Death of a culture. Death is the end that makes way for something new. It is an important and necessary aspect of growth. But letting things die is HARD.

What does Death mean for Jupiter in Scorpio? We offer tools and techniques to help let things die. To help let go and make way for the new.

Jupiter remains in a sign for approximately one year. The planet's entrance into a new sign (Scorpio) indicates a major shift for the collective and how we will be learning and growing for the next 13 months.

This course and ceremony includes:

  • An invocation and understanding of Jupiter
  • A reflection on Jupiter's recent journey through Libra September 9, 2017-October 10, 2017
  • Research on Jupiter's last journey through Scorpio fall 2005-2006
  • A divination on Jupiter's upcoming journey through Scorpio October 10, 2017 - November 8, 2018
  • A special teaching on How To Let Things Die by Cassie Barrett
  • Practicum

Many challenges await us ahead, but these challenges present a wonderful opportunity to consciously let things die in order to call in the new, grow, and expand.

Price for this class is $35

Space is limited. Pre-Register Here or Contact Us to discover if space still remains.
