Neptune as the Key to Understanding Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ – Priscilla Costello

8:30 pm 26th June 2017

Remarkably many of Shakespeare’s beloved works have an astrological
signature.  “The Tempest” is undoubtedly keyed to Pisces and its
traditional ruler Jupiter (plus its modern ruler Neptune).  We’ll explore
how to determine the keys to the play and discover ideas in it that tell
us much about the positive use of Neptune and the profound spiritual
philosophy that underlies the work.  We’ll discover how the action of the
play as well as the characters and important themes are entirely in accord
with its astrological symbolism. This will give you a greater
understanding and appreciation of the play as well as elucidate the
elusive Neptune!
