The seeds of the New Year are present in the shell of the old, and each year during the Holy Nights season, our artistic engagement with the mysteries of the zodiac of stars in relation to the human biography is as the weaving of a basket into which the fruits ripening from these seeds can be gathered, to create a sense of harmony in our engagement with the cycle of the year.
Each year since 1996 I have hosted a Holy Nights gathering and activity, to engage in the mystery of the Earth in its free and conscious relationship with the universe of stars that surrounds it. This year my program was presented entirely online, several weeks ahead of the Holy Nights themselves, with a particular emphasis on the role of the Divine Feminine in awakening this star knowledge.
The Holy Nights webinar fee includes a video recording of the live webinar that was held on December 8. It offers guidance for contemplating the human biography in relation to the stars throughout the cycle of the year. You will also receive downloadable and print-ready materials for the journey across the threshold of the new year.
This year’s program was held intentionally on December 8, Feast of the Immaculate Conception, and was especially designed in anticipation of Venus’ unveiling at Total Solar Eclipse on December 14, until her next meeting with the Sun on March 25, 2021 (the Feast of Annunciation).
