What you'll learn in this lecture class:

One of the first things to know when looking at the world through an astrological lens is that timing is everything. By reviewing when the planets align and create specific cosmic patterns, we can see when certain events will transpire in our own lives.

The most notable alignment in 2020, which will set the tone for the entire year, is the upcoming Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn (featuring Jupiter) in mid-January. This is an incredibly rare and important event for America, as well as for the world.

In this lecture we’ll cover this once-in-a-lifetime event, as well as all other planetary alignments and shifts for the year. We will go into what these will mean for the world-at-large, as well as on an individual basis. We’ll also look at the planetary retrogrades to help discern when is the best time for our own advancement.

And perhaps most compellingly, we’ll take an in-depth look at the upcoming presidential election, the leading contenders in the race and the impact of what this might do for the country. 

We will not have the opportunity to go through individual charts but you’re welcome to bring yours along for reference. To get a copy of your chart please submit your birth info here: therussross.com/submission and a copy will be emailed to you before the lecture.

This lecture is designed for both novices and astro-obsessed minds alike. Basically, all are welcome!

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
