Vibration Magazine — educational journal on flower essences – is one of the hosts of a web-based event called a Blogathon to celebrate International Astrology Day, 2010.
The focus of the event is on a difficult triangle of astrological influences called a cardinal t-square that Pluto, Saturn, and Uranus are forming in the sky for many months this year and next.
We at Vibration believe that the combination of astrology and flower essences is outstanding in helping people understand and address difficulties that arise during tough transits.
This collection of articles by astrologers who are essence practitioners will remain online as a permanent resource for people who want to learn more about the ways astrology and flower essences can enhance one another.
