Aries Workshop Seatlle

We will be diving deep into the energy and significations of the first fire sign Aries!  You’ll get to explore which part of your life you approach with Aries energy, in other words, which house contains the sign of Aries in your birth chart.  We’ll also consider what changes are in store for us as revolutionary Uranus begins its 7 year journey through the Taurus territory in our chart. That’s right, we all contain all the signs in some part of our chart, aka, our life.

 We will use embodied techniques inspired by Interplay, Theatre of the Oppressed, and other modalities that open us to our own body wisdom and intuitive intelligence. We will also call on the spirit of flower and gem essences to aid us. No previous knowledge of astrology required.  Come ready to play and move in whatever way feels good. You can check out some testimonials on my website!

Scorpio Workshop

Venus Retrograde ends November 16th everybody. Wow. And we just had a whole lot of Scorpio season. We’ll have space and time to explore what this retrograde meant for us and how best to integrate the lessons. We will also unpack some of that big bad Scorpio energy! Possibly one of the signs that gets thrown the most shade and least valued by our general society. There are reasons. Why? Mostly I’d say patriarchy and misogyny. Come. This isn’t just for Scorpios! This is for all lovers of astrology, folks who want to learn more about their own charts and align with the current movements of the stars! That’s right, the planets are always moving and activating all kinds of vibes.

We will use embodied techniques inspired by Interplay, Theatre of the Oppressed, and other modalities that open us to our own body wisdom and intuitive intelligence. No previous knowledge of astrology required.  Come ready to play and move in whatever way feels good. You can check out some testimonials on my website!
