Featured | Empathy-Pathos: 2018 Autumn Reading by Eric Francis Coppolino
Mars retrograde has now ended, and Venus retrograde is about to begin. Spanning from Oct. 5 through Nov. 15, the retrograde will be in Scorpio (where Venus is supposedly not so happy) into Libra (where she is supposedly thrilled). This might describe many shades of empathy (the ability to resonate with another) and pathos (suffering, or passion, which come from the same root).


In your 2018 Autumn Reading, Empathy-Pathos, Eric will review Mars retrograde and the recent eclipses, and open up the territory of Venus and its unusual way of resonating and emoting.
We’ll explore approaches to the masculine and feminine attributes of Venus, as well as the introspective and expressive aspects of Venus through the retrograde process.
The retrograde begins with Venus square Mars, describing the prevailing tension and struggle with inhibition that characterize our time in history. From there, the journey is inward, to the source of whatever feelings you may be experiencing.
These will be audio readings, featuring music by Vision Quest. With apologies to those who were planning on video, Eric feels he will be better able to deliver this reading in spoken word format, without the distraction of visuals.
The readings apply to Sun and rising sign, and will be 30 to 40 minutes each. Pre-order here to get all 12 signs for just $88. The price will increase soon.
Note: If you’re a Backstage or Galaxy Pass holder, this reading is included with your membership. If you would like to make a token contribution toward the project, you may use this form. This is not a purchase — it’s a donation. Thank you for your generosity.

Seasonal 12-Sign Readings by Eric Francis
The Art of Becoming: 2018 Annual Reading
The Sacred Space of Self: 2018 Spring Reading
Eric’s annual readings provide not only insight but spiritual and psychological leverage. He is not here to predict the future, but rather to help you design your future. Even by contemporary standards, 2018 is a distinctive year astrologically. The Art of Becoming offers in-depth, valuable guidance for navigating it in 12 chapter-length readings. Eric brings all of his talent and experience to this work. Chiron is now in Aries, for the first time since 1977. This is about the quest for individuality in the most deeply personal way: the cultivation and growth of your soul. There are challenges associated with doing this, which Eric addresses eloquently and in a way that you will find reassuring and helpful. Chiron in Aries is good news for those who love learning about themselves.

Astrology and More — Classes with Eric Francis
I have recently become more inspired to pursue and study astrology more seriously. When I saw Eric would be teaching a class on retrogrades, I knew that he would more than likely be the best source for this knowledge. [And he was!!] Thank you Eric for continuing to have these classes! They are wonderful. — Stacey Katz

You can now order any of Eric’s classes, past or present, using the links below — either as bundles or by themselves. The most recent class was Business, Finance and Astrology. You may order that here.

All classes include a full recording of the session, a thorough and informative resources page, and an opportunity to continue the discussion once the class is over.
