Introduction to Astrology - Planet Meanings
Date: Monday, 4th October 2021
Time: 11:00 am
Venue: At a member's home in Onerahi
Address: Address will be given upon booking
Contact: Carolyn 021 1859589

We know what the planet symbols look like but what do they mean? 

Did you know the Moon represents your moods?  Or the placement of the Sun in your chart is where you want to shine?  Or that Mars is where you want to be a warrior?

In this class we look more in-depth at the meanings of the planets, what zodiac sign they rule and their exaltation.

* Having done previous classes is an advantage but not necessary.

A Game of Mahjong
Date: Monday, 18th October 2021
Time: 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Venue: At a member's house - address will be given upon booking

This is getting quite addictive! We love our Mahjong and we think you should try it too. Join us for a game of strategy and wit, and experience this old traditional game of Mahjong.

Mahjong is a strategy game that originated in China. It's similar to rummy, but it's played with tiles instead of cards. Generally, you play with 4 people. The goal is to form 4 sets or sequences and a pair, creating Mahjong!
Bring your thinking hats :)
