6-PArt Series: Astrology for Collective Resilience in Times of Upheaval

  • Hillman City Collaboratory (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

A deep dive into the astrology of the summer and its connection with the revolutionary astrology of 2020.  2020 is a year of major planetary cycles ending, heralding major structural shifts in power. This is all stuff we are already feeling, organizing around, and preparing for. This is a space to be in collective conversation about these important changes, calling on the guidance of the ancient energetic GPS system that is astrology.  There are beacons in the sky we can look toward to unify.

There will also be space and time to reflect on how this epic planetary shift is activating your own birth chart, i.e. your life.  We are all also going through this in a very personal way, and astrology can shed a lot of light on how to move through it with forethought .

For lovers of astrology who want to learn more. For organizers, healers, and change agents needing some cosmic guidance in times of escalating violence.  All levels of astrology are welcome.

Astrology for Collective Resilience

1:00 PM13:00

Astrology for Collective Resilience

We are all feeling the immense structural changes that are looming and already happening to our earth, our governments, our borders, and our own personal trajectories in the face of these upheavals.  

There are important messages from the planets above that are bringing forth these new realities. 2019-2020 mark the endings of 3 major planetary cycles that will have a profound effect on the systems of power that we put our faith in.

This is a workshop in anticipation of one of the most important planetary alignments of our life time happening through the rest of 2019 and culminating in January 2020. Saturn, planet that rules our structural material reality is meeting Pluto, bringer of deep change and transformation in the sign of Capricorn.  Along with a few other major players, this event will have major implications for the globe and especially the United States.

We will use embodied practices to explore the meaning of this planetary alignment and have the chance to track significant dates in our own lives to move through the rest of 2019 and into 2020 with greater awareness and intention. We will dream collectively for the future we hope for and are willing to work toward, and see how our own paths can weave into the wellbeing of all.   

These are times to come together as never before.  These are time to look upward and outward for guidance from our community, our elders, and our oldest ancestors, the wandering planets above.

Revelations: An Astro Cabaret for Uranus in Taurus

Join Dorothy's Piano Bar & Cabaret on May 4th for an astrologically inspired cabaret featuring local artists Kataka Corn, Duncan Menzies, Aaron Norman, and Marilyn Vigil-Harris.

After 84 years, the rebellious planet Uranus is once more paying a visit to the fertile, abundant sign of Taurus. Uranus likes to create by revolution, and this radical is ready to break down Taurus' door, challenging us to reflect and change the way we relate to the resouces around us.

Created in collaboration with spiritual astrologer Giselle Castaño, this evening of song explores Uranus' disruptive journey through Taurus and the revelations that emerge.

Taurus Astrology Workshop- By Donation

  • 725 24th Avenue South Seattle, WA, 98144 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We will focus on the revelations, disruptions, and evolutions that Uranus in Taurus has in store for us for the next 7 years. Uranus is like a lightning rod that brings inevitable and sometimes shocking change into the area of the chart that is ruled by Taurus in your birth chart. These changes are also impacting us as a collective, bringing into the light the ways that we value the resources we have access to and the kind of security we desire. Obvious connections to this period are climate change, national “security” issues, and women’s role in the work force.

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.

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!

This month is all about Libra and Venus Retrograde. Yes that’s right, Venus, planet of love, relationships, and sensuality is going retrograde in the two signs most associated with partnership, Scorpio and Libra.  You can make this Venus Retrograde work for you by getting attuned to the energy and meaning of this cycle. It can be a season of deeper honesty, courage, and transformation in your relationships.

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 here! You'll receive instructions on how to pull up your birth chart once you RSVP.

WOC in the Wilderness Retreat

to Oct 7

WOC in the Wilderness Retreat

I will be co-facilitating an astrology workshop to awaken us to our connection to the stars above and our own intuitive knowing of how celestial bodies influence our lives.

Deeping our Connection to nature and each other.

This is an intentional space for women of color to connect with the earth, one of our most powerful healing forces. A space where we can gather as our Ancestors did to learn, laugh, heal, move, grow and commune with each other.  There will be a lot of time for swimming, laying by the river and connecting in many ways. This gathering will be simple, rootsy and organic, with some structured yoga and movement classes and workshops throughout.
