An Afternoon With The Stars
by Psychotherapist and Astrologer, Dana Darrow
Have you ever wanted to learn more about Astrology and how it can be used to enlighten and guide you through your life journey?
Did you know that where the planets were positioned at the time of your birth can provide a blueprint for your progression through this life?
Greetings, my name is Dana Darrow and I am a licensed, clinical psychotherapist who has been practicing for 25 years. About 9 years ago, I began working with a Jungian analyst and astrologer. This deep, personal work was the beginning of my immersion in astrology and eventually incorporating this ancient tradition into my own practice with clients. I have found that using astrology as a tool in psychotherapy can provide valuable information and deep understanding of one’s inner processes and life patterns.
Now, I am excited to be able to offer a class for those who are interested in learning more about astrology, and I would love for you to join me for an afternoon of lively discussion and exploration. Some of the topics we will be covering include:
1) Origins of Astrology.
2) Sun Sign definitions and personality characteristics. Getting to know a little more about yourself and others.
3) How the House System works in collaboration with the astrological signs.
4) Understanding the Natal Chart.
5) The psychology of the planets. Introduction to Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Pluto and Jupiter.
"I recently participated in the Astrology 101 class offered by Dana Darrow, LISW which started June 18 and recently ended. Although I had learned a few things about Astrology from Dana prior to the class, attending the class put a complete different perspective about astrology and how profound it can be in our life’s journey. I had no idea how complex astrology was and how it has been scientifically used for centuries throughout the world in a variety of ways. What was most profound for me is that I am currently experiencing my 2nd Saturn Return of which I had never even heard about Saturn Return. I am currently experiencing a very difficult time in my life and having this knowledge helps me tremendously in understanding my journey and how it correlates perfectly with what is in ‘my stars’. The timing and circumstances are uncanny to what I am going through as was my first Saturn Return when I was also going through a difficult time.
Dana does and outstanding job in presenting the information in a way that is easy to understand, along with the corresponding materials/handouts. She also provides personal natal charts (birth chart from your birth date) and ongoing charts during the class. What was exceptionally profound was ending the course doing a Astrology Constellation which really helped put everything in perspective in a very personal and experiential way. It was incredibly moving for me and other classmates.
I really encourage this class for anyone that may or may not have any interest in astrology. Knowing how vast the universe is, and the true wisdom that is in the stars can be a very exciting and moving experience."

"If you go to just one class this year for personal growth—or just for fun—take Astrology 101 with Dana Darrow! It is profoundly life-changing and you will walk out of Dana’s class with a better sense of self and life direction. Dana explains the house system, the Sun signs, the planets and teaches you to read and interpret your own birth chart. This class gives you hands on experience deciphering your birth chart with the soul constellation—this is an incredibly powerful tool as you stand in as your own Sun sign and have others represent your planets in their respective houses. This gives you an amazing visual to work with as the energy flows. Dana is so intuitive and she will empower you and guide you on your life’s journey! Life makes so much more sense to me now that I’m studying Astrology. Life’s battles, I know now, are serving a greater purpose, and I’m learning to trust. Give yourself the gift of Self and take Dana’s life affirming Astrology 101 class! You couldn’t ask for a better teacher and Albuquerque is truly blessed to have Dana at the helm!"
