Astrology Intensive

also Oct 2017

Join us to learn the basic building blocks of Astrology

and how they relate to your own personal map of the stars at the time of your birth!
We'll start with the story of the Signs. This simple story will help you to remember the signs
and establish their relationship to the planets & houses, which is the crux of Astrological understanding. Next we'll explore the meaning of the astronomical position of the planets in relation to each other. Then we'll move on to what the Symbols in Astrology mean, how the Elements & Modes are influential, the Cardinal Cross & Quadrants of the chart (plus their deeper connections), Aspects of the planets in relation to each other in your chart, the Moon's Nodes (including the significance of the dragon's tale), and cover several key Asteroids... all while applying these principles to your own natal charts.

Lastly we will interpret our own charts and those of public figures. 
By the end of the workshop you will have the tools you need to be able to start interpreting your chart, and the charts of your friends & loved ones. You will posses all you need to start your own personal journey into the world of Astrology, including deepening your connection to the Universe, and the personal alchemical transformation that comes with the understanding of this wisdom. 

•Natal Chart included. Message Laurelle with your birth date, place, and the exact time if you have it•

*Seating limited to 10*

Saturday 9/15/18 & Sunday 9/16/18 • 12-6pm

$175 by 9/14 • $200 for installments or for after 9/14  • $100 for one day only

"For many people, their knowledge of astrology starts with knowing their Sun sign and reading

newspaper, magazine, and internet horoscopes based solely on the placement of the sun in their charts.

This is similar to asking someone what time it is and hearing either "morning, afternoon, or evening."
A stronger understanding of Astrology aids one in having a fuller understanding of their strengths, their weaknesses,

and their soul's path upon incarnating in this lifetime. Understanding how the planets can influence

personal and societal events helps us to plan our lives in a more energetically efficient way.
To get there, we must understand our natal charts and what signs and houses the planets (and asteroids)

were in at the time of our birth. Once we have an archetypal understanding of the signs, the houses, and the planets,

we can see how these energies interplay with our daily lives. Laurelle's class will help to do just that.
I took this class with her last year. Even though I had a decent understanding of astrology before, it helped to give me

a refresher of the fundamentals of astrology and to tie the different parts of it together in an easy to comprehend fashion.
Whether you are a newcomer to astrology, or you know the basics and just need a refresher,

I highly recommend this class to you.” -Peter, NYC

Guided Chakra and Earth Healing Meditation

We have all been evolving to be more conscious of our actions so that we can be what we seek

in this world, and we are beginning to understand that we are a part of a deeper, bigger picture. 

The Earth itself is a living being. We are embedded into nature, mother earth, and we've come to

realize that there is no-inherent separate self. Mindfulness helps expand our senses of identity and meditation allows us to access stillness so that we can tune in to the vibrant, alive pulsating world

so we can live the path of radical deep interconnectedness.

Join Krystal Perkins, Michael Jay, Lester Loving & Laurelle Rethke for an evening celebraing Earth Day.

Let us protect and honor Mother Earth, and remove ourselves from the divisiveness, as we are all one. Let us come together to experience energetic alchemy to ignite our 6 senses with sound, guided visualizations and positive intentions.  Let us quiet our minds to balance and harmonize with our true divine nature! ♥

Thursday 4/21/16, 7-10pm ~ Energy exchange $40
There is limited seating, so please reserve your tickets below
