What we're about

Are you interested in Astrology or other esoteric arts but are overwhelmed by the amount of information out there? Would you like some guidance on where to start, or how to continue your studies? This meetup is for you! I want to bring together folks who are interested in learning and/or are currently studying Astrology or anything esoteric, to learn and grow from your peers. I have found that the community opportunities for Astrologers in Chicago proper are few, and I'd love to provide a space where aspiring Astrologers can get together and learn about reading natal charts. I am hoping for each meeting to have a learning component and a reading component. So we will learn a new aspect of reading natal charts and then put it to practice. Most of these meetings will be classes, but there will be social events from time to time.

During the pandemic I began offering classes online, and I've grown to enjoy the platform. Although I am Chicago based, having online classes allows me to interact with folks everywhere, so I've decided to change my focus to offering mostly online classes. Hope you decide to join me!

21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card Study Group

Link visible for attendees

$10.00

I have been wanting to take a deep dive into Mary K. Greer's 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card for quite some time, but I'm terrible about staying motivated when I try to do things by myself. So join me!

In this meeting, we will be working through Mary K. Greer's book chapter by chapter. It's ok if you miss any of these meetings; the activities in each chapter can stand alone. So feel free to drop in and out if you'd like. The goal will be to meet once a month

You can find this book at Alchemy Arts or any local occult bookstore. In our first meeting, we will be looking at the first chapter (through page 6). Read this chapter, do the exercises, and we'll come together and share what we've learned and experienced.

Since this is more of a collaborative experience than a class, I'm only charging $10 for this meeting. The price helps me offset the cost of having the Meetup group and a subscription to Zoom, both of which make it possible for me to do this with you!

Looking forward to working with you!!

Let's Get Fem! Asteroids in the Natal Chart

Needs a location

$20.00

Let's face it. It's a man's world. Even in astrology. Most of the planets are male gods, representing male archetypes. Female archetypes are relegated to Lunar and Venus placements, and that's about it.

Well, it's about time to meet the Asteroid goddesses. Vesta, Ceres, Juno and Pallas are asteroids that you can place in your chart that represent the feminine spectrum of our earthly experience.

In this class, we will look at how to interpret asteroids in general and then take a deep dive into each of the 4 main asteroid goddesses. Then, we'll find these asteroids in our own charts, and see how this feminine spectrum manifests in each of us.

This class is $20. Please pull up your natal chart for free on astro.com. If you have trouble, let me know and I'll give you a hand. We'll do a demonstration in class on how to insert the asteroids into your chart, but if you already know how, feel free to throw those on before class.

See you there!

Intro to Astrology: the Building Blocks of the Zodiac - Online!

Link visible for attendees

$10.00

I will be offering an Astrology Basics class a couple of times a year. This class will cover the absolute fundamentals that you need to know about the Zodiac in order to begin your study of Astrology. We will be taking a look at the structure of the zodiac; breaking out the elements and modalities that operate within it, and then putting those back together to explore how combining elements and modalities create the unique energies of each of the zodiac signs. This class is an excellent way to start your study of Astrology. It's also great if you've already been studying Astrology, but would like to review the fundamentals. Class will be online from 7 - 9 p.m. and will be $10. I can take payment online through Venmo, PayPal or Quickpay on the day of the class. Hope to see you there!

The Power of Solar Conjunctions: Under the Beams, Combust & Cazimi

Link visible for attendees

$25.00

The Sun has an enormous amount of power, both in our natal charts and in transits. It's the largest object in our solar system, and what holds all of the other planets in place. So of course solar aspects, in and of themselves, are incredibly powerful.

But none moreso than the conjunction to the Sun. Because the Sun is so powerful and large, it's sphere of influence differs from other planets. There are phases to a solar conjunction that are a little more nuanced in nature. The Sun, in most cases, does tend to overpower planets that it comes into contact with. But not always.

In this class, we will discuss the power of the solar conjunction, both natally and through transit. Then we'll take a look at the phases of a solar conjunction, and the nature of those phases. Finally, we'll work through each of the planets, to see how each respond to these types of solar conjunctive phases.

This class is $25.

See you there!
