PSI: Adventures in Consciousness

July 2014 Program

“Zodiac Energy and How It Works: Humanistic Astrology in Action”
Mary Jane Staudenmann
Friday, July 18, 2014 @ 7:30 p.m. Unity Temple on the Plaza

Author Mary Jane Staudenmann will present her new book Desire and Design: A Look at Venus and Mars in Action. Desire and design—our two greatest driving forces. How does astrology have a hand in the things we desire and how we design to achieve them? Mary Jane, a Geneva, Switzerland-based astrology teacher, consultant, and now author, will explain the roles that Venus (influencing desire) and Mars (our actions) play in our two most basic drives.

What planetary influences are behind artists’ (and our own) madness and brilliance? How can some people achieve what they desire while others are bent on self-destruction, taking others down with them?

Desire and Design spotlights the changing personalities of Venus and Mars as they pass through the zodiac—their possibilities and problems in each sign, and how they play out in our lives. Mary Jane weaves together the stories of such notable luminaries as Greek and Roman deities and famous authors, political figures, actors, and writers—with full-color natal charts—into her narrative on the planets, truly bringing the subject to life. Art reproductions, movie stills, and excerpts from songs and literature also serve as visible examples of what is at work.

Mary Jane has been teaching and consulting in astrology since 1982. An American living in Geneva, she has studied astrology and the tarot in Geneva. There will be a book signing after the program. To schedule an astrology reading, send an email to Visit Mary Jane’s website at
