Beyond the 13th Zodiac Forum at Yuchengco Museum

Beyond the 13th Zodiac Forum
on January 28 at Yuchengco Museum

Astrologers Resti Santiago, Henry Palacios, and museum curator Jeannie Javelosa discuss recent findings on Ophiuchus the 13th sign, the zodiac, and how it affects our personality and daily life.

The Yuchengco Museum’s theme of Bridging Cultures has always fostered exchange. Culture and its many expressions, such as dynamic and evolving worldviews, have always been a bridge to foster a deeper understanding between peoples. In all its exhibits and events, the Yuchengco Museum has defined itself not only as a place that showcases art and design, but also as a forum of exchange, debate, and education.

The Yuchengco Museum kicks off the year with a special lineup of quarterly talks and fora, the BRIDGING CULTURES: The World Views Forum Series. The first forum focuses on the recent media hype that dominated social media and garnered international news mentions—Ophiuchus, the “13th zodiac sign.” Earlier in January, American astronomer Parke Kunkle told NBC News that there is a 13th astrological sign, sending many into an astrological identity crisis. This pronouncement has also brought up more questions which only astrologers could answer.

On January 28, 2011, Friday, at 5 p.m., the science of astrology will be highlighted in Beyond the 13th Zodiac Sign: Making Astrology Work for You. Three astrologers—Resti Santiago, Henry Palacios, and museum curator Jeannie Javelosa—come together to discuss and share their views on this recent astronomical finding vis-à-vis astrological practice, the zodiac signs, and its implications on our personality and daily life. Other topics to be touched on include a brief history of astrology, things to focus on for one’s personality, and how astrology can help in today’s changing spiritual evolution.
