Don’t forget to sign up for this live class on Business, Finance and Astrology with Eric Francis. This four-hour session will take place by teleconference; you’ll get permanent access afterwards to the full recording and the class materials.
Here is what former students have said about Eric’s classes:
Eric was able to convey how he uses retrogrades in a way that wasn’t limited by technique; he never loses sight of the whole person. This is incredibly rare with skilled astrologers in practice and to be able to deliver this to people in class is no easy feat. — Suzana Da Costa
Thanks again for this booster rocket on the houses. So many good images and ideas. — Cheryl Corson
I really love and admire Eric’s ability to deliver deeply insightful explanations. — Ann Roddy
Whether you’re a beginner or a more advanced student, this class will have something for you. You may sign up here. If you need assistance or have any questions, please email email@example.com. See you there!

If Your Birthday is June 1
(The Day of the Popular Eye) | Gemini Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You’ve reached an important turning point in your life, where being emotionally honest with yourself is all that matters. This is a big step, and you’re ready to take it. If you’re ever trying to convince yourself of something, stop and ask yourself what you’re really feeling. Don’t be afraid to do what intimidates you, or the people around you.
Written in the Planets
Chiron’s long square to Pholus is one of the defining aspects of this year. Eric has previously suggested that any event with centaurs involved is going to relate to healing past difficulties in some way, because this is the broad theme of the centaur mythology. This particular iteration speaks of habits, and how to break patterns that make us feel stuck. The first point is to understand what needs to change and why. The second is to foster determination. That includes being willing to seek help if you need it. Finally, we may still be wild animals in many ways despite self-consciousness, but we do have the ability to master our impulses, though it takes practice and effort. You can get to where you need to be, if you want to.
My goodness me. Marilyn Monroe would have been 91 today. Candles. Wind.
Apparently when on set she was never without a book. I loved finding that out.
