A Creative Exploration of Your Astrology
with Joness Jones

“Don’t read the Times, Read the Eternities.” – Emerson

Person/Planet, by Alex Grey & Allyson Grey

Connect your creativity to the ancient tradition of communing with the macrocosm. For generations, we have observed our neighboring planets and asteroids as they transit the solar system, and charted their subtle influences on our lives. 

Aligning with these cosmic rhythms can add a level of depth to your life & creative practice through an increased understanding of self, others, generational trends and global occurrences.
