Two eclipses will be taking place during the month of August – a partial lunar eclipse during the Full Moon on August 7th, and a total solar eclipse on the New Moon of August 21st. This upcoming Solar Eclipse, happening in the sign of Leo, belongs to Saros eclipse series 145 and has been dubbed the “Great American Eclipse”. It will be visible from coast to coast to coast across the US and likely viewed by more people than any other eclipse in human history, due to its path, which will cut through the midsection of the United States and include several major urban centers.
In this talk, we will discuss the basic astronomical setup of eclipses, but will mainly focus on their astrological symbolism – in particular, some noteworthy links between the August 21 eclipse, and the charts of the USA and world leaders (Leo – the sign of the Lion – is a traditional signifier for royalty, heads of state, and related issues regarding the governance of nations). Following this presentation, we will have an opportunity to briefly study participants’ natal charts to see what area of their lives the energy of this solar eclipse might affect.
$5.00 per person (including light refreshments)

“Merging mirrored images of ice seems to open a window to a hidden dimension where other worldly creatures and deities emerge to tell their tale. As the two halves integrate, new worlds formulate. When I find one I want to visit, I freeze that moment so the window can remain open forever, beckoning a viewer to climb in and explore.” – Brendan Mullally
Visit RosenSpace in August to discover a unique photography collection created by local artist Brendan Mullally!
A wintry walk in Minnewaska State Park, and a friend’s chance discovery of evocative patterns within a frozen puddle, inspired Brendan to start chasing ice and manipulating the reflected images into photo art. The final products are the result of merging mirrored images in Photoshop.These images are organic – all of the colors are already hidden in the ice; Brendan simply pulls them out.
The August 6th exhibit will open right after the Rosendale Mermaid parade that’s taking place from 1-2 pm (in keeping with the day’s aquatic theme 😉 )
Brendan himself will be present to discuss his work at the exhibit closing on Sunday, August 20th, from 1-5 pm.
