Cosmos + Cocktails; Shaking It Up: An Astrological Exploration of 2017
Thursday, May 25th 6pm
This year seems quite r/evolutionary and intense, filled with both immense chaos and creativity. Whether personally or collectively, we're experiencing shake-ups, twists and turns, and the need to extricate ourselves from the things that have kept us from connecting to a deeper sense of personal freedom. It's a time of stressful unknowns while also being one dotted with peaks of stellar possibilities.
Want to gain a better understanding as to just what's going on, and how to navigate the opportunities and challenges that this year carries with it?
Then join wellness astrologer Stephanie Gailing at E. Smith Mercantile for this Cosmos + Cocktails AstroSalon. In this gathering, we'll explore the powerful astrological happenings that are infusing the year, notably the alignments between the planets Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto as well as the Lunar Nodes shifting into Leo and Aquarius. You'll learn insights, key dates, and wellness strategies that will leave you aware and empowered to make the most of this year.
To further inspire you in this shake-it-up year, in the cocktails portion of our Cocktails + Cosmos workshop we'll learn how to infuse our cocktails with plants and botanicals to enhance the powerfully shifting aspects of the year's astrology. Burn off steam by learning shaken cocktail techniques that will leave you feeling empowered and satisfied in your cocktail sorcery.
Get frisky with our favorite drink du jour! Babeland’s friendly sex educators will be serving up tips to keep things tingly in the boudoir.
