Stephen Poplin and I are happy to invite you to our new workshop series.

What do the stars reveal about the great artists’ lives and their approach to art?

Sun. Feb. 27

2 pm – 3:30 pm Eastern

optional Q&A time after


In these monthly Zoom workshop presentations, artist-author Meryl Ann Butler and astrologer-author Stephen Poplin are your guides as you:

* discover how astrological factors influence an artist’s creative style

* explore how celestial influences impact subject matter, color, composition and style.

* learn how famous artists’ zodiacs reveal the innermost workings of their creative processes

* uncover juicy secrets about the artists’ lives that may not be fully revealed in history but which cannot be hidden in their charts

This series of explorations with artist Meryl Ann Butler and astrologer Stephen Poplin will illuminate art and artists in ways you have not encountered before!

The first session focuses on two iconic Impressionists: Edgar Degas and Mary Cassatt. Both of them began as realists, what do their charts reveal about why they took a radical path? How do their astrological influences show up in their artwork? And, were they lovers or not?

Workshops are scheduled for the last Sunday of the month, each month through November 2022. Enrollment enables you to attend live, or get the recording, or both. The 90-minute workshop begins at 2 pm EASTERN time, and Stephen and Meryl Ann will entertain comments and questions afterwards for another 20-30 minutes from those who wish to participate. 

Meryl Ann and Stephen are the creators of the popular online workshop, “Decoding your Horoscope:  Edgar Cayce’s Mystic Vision.”
