Astrology with Michael Pendragon - 
Saturday, November 1, 2014 - 5:00 p.m. - $100 per person - THIS IS A LIMITED SEATING FIRST COME-FIRST SERVE WORKSHOP
Anyone who wishes to seriously study the Western Magical Tradition, will at some point find that they need to attain a deeper understanding of Astrology. Fortunately, there has been recently a recovery of many lost techniques from Hellenic sources from 2000 years ago. Astrology is the study, and interpretation of the flow of time, and its effects on our lives using the changing Seasons, Stars, and Planetary positions as indicators. Coupled with the Tarot, as a pictorial version of Astrology, we shall cover the basic areas a student will need to master in the Art of Astrology and Magick. In this class you will learn practical applications for astrology, such as the best aspects and times for performing Magickal operations and rituals.

Cleansing & Clearing Class with Mark
Sunday, November 9, 2014 - 12:00 noon - Free
Mark conducts these classes several times a year and we are the only shoppe that offers this class free of charge. Many other business require a substantial fee to perform a cleansing at your residence or place of business. Since cleansing/smudging is something that should be done on a regular basis, we would rather give you instruction on how to perform cleansing yourself.  The proper techniques for cleansing and smudging will be discussed as well as the use of various resins, herbs, incense and oils. This class runs approximately 90 minutes. These classes fill quickly.  Please call the shoppe to reserve your seat.

Our authors travel from out of state to present their classes and workshops and we commit to a certain number of attendees.  Effigy is limited in seating space and we have had a huge response to our classes.  Unfortunately, we have had last minute cancellations for unpaid classes which leave unfilled space for people we have turned away.  Therefore, we are now requiring payment for classes upon sign-up and there are no refunds for classes, workshops or events.
