There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and I hope you come away with seeing that your greatest Soul growth usually comes after the age of 40 and then again, in a different way, after the age of 60! I hope you enjoy this site and take a moment to drop a line...
The astrology of aging can be defined by the transits of the Third Act of Life. Each transit, each passage of aging, in mid-life and our Elder years can be explored astrologically. By combining astrology, Jungian psychology and memoir, Elizabeth shows how mid-life or the "Third Act" gives us a chance to deepen and connect with our Soul. But when are the best times to make changes? When is the time to pare down, turn inward and draw the threads of your life into a tapestry? When do we have new beginnings in mid-life? You may be forty, sixty or eighty but it's time to become re-enthused about your next chapter of life.
Jungian astrologer, Elizabeth Spring MA, has written a book describing the life passages the baby boomers are living through now-- transits that we all experience in aging. Starting with the Uranus Opposition at age 41, to the Chiron Return at age 51, the Second Saturn Return at age 59, to the Uranus Square at 63 and the Uranus Return at 84. Each age-each transit-embodies wisdom that can help us navigate these potentially rich times.
Elizabeth has a Master's degree in psychology with an emphasis in the work of Carl Jung. She's been a professional astrologer since 1992 and has written 3 astrology books and a memoir. At the age of 71 she became passionate about learning how to age well, and how to use this time to ponder the Mystery that is us.
She has found the metaphors and symbolism of astrology to offer profound clues as to how to age with grace and wisdom.

"I found this book to be extremely helpful in focusing on what is important in my "Third Act of Life' (age 70.) Elizabeth shows us the imperative of connecting to our souls, especially later in life. To quote from the book: "As the writer George Eliot once said, 'It's never too late to be who you might have been."
Finally she writes, "We are the generation that has the potential to remake the terrain of aging--to reimagine and to realize the re-enchantment that can exist alongside the losses of aging."

Workshop on Astrology for the Third Act of Life
From the age of 40 to the age of 88 there are symbolic movements of the planets that mark times of significant life transitions. By understanding the challenges and gifts of each transit-age we see all the times of opportunity. Planets are archetypal energies and will be explored at each life passage. We will delve into the meanings of the Uranus Opposition at age 40, the Chiron Return at age 50, the Saturn Return at age 59, the Uranus Square at age 63, the Jupiter Return at age 72, the Saturn Opposition at age 73, the Uranus Return at age 84, and the Third Saturn Return at age 88. A simple understanding of astrology is helpful but not necessary.
