Open Evening – Free Admission

Astrolodge8th September 2014 — 7pm

Ever wondered what we do at the Lodge? Come to our Open Evening and find out. Open Evening is geared towards new and recent members, and provides an opportunity to meet like-minded astrologers and find out more about the lodge. The evening begins with a welcome address from the President, Kim Farnell, who will tell you about what’s coming up for the lodge and answer any questions you might have. But instead of simply telling you what we do, we’d like to show you. So we’ll start off with a brief chart discussion for everyone to join in – that includes absolute beginners. Then it’s up to you. You can have a short reading from one of our astrologers. Or if you fancy something different, how about a tarot reading, palm reading or having your fortune told with traditional methods? Lodge members will be available to discuss astrology and Lodge activities. Or you can get to know some of the other people attending. We’ll stop for a short refreshment break at 8 pm and then reconvene for further readings and a final short chart discussion. Entry is free for those who simply want to attend and chat to like-minded people. A small charge will be made for readings. We look forward to meeting you!
