By merging astrology, plant wisdom, ceremony, traditional magic and folklore, this course empowers you to heal, transform, and experience the harmony that exists between the celestial and earthly realms. We will meet on some Thursday evenings and one Saturday a month for six months. Beginning our journey with Autumnal Equinox Sept 21st and traveling through the dark half of the year, we complete our passage at Brigid’s hearth on Saturday, February 10th. Please review the dates before you register.
Embark on a Journey of Transformation:
As we move into the dark half of the year, we enter a time of internal transformation, the end of the year and a gestation period before spring. In this dark half of the year, we will be using the tools of astrology, plant medicine and magic to dream the coming rebirth of spring and ourselves. Brigid’s day is February 1st, when the signs of earliest spring make themselves clear. In this way, she is a goddess of rebirth, light returning, healing, and the blessings of spring. Like the priestesses which kept an undying flame at her temple, we will tend to our own inner flame through ritual, dialogue with planets, ancestral connection, and plant magic. Join us in this journey and step onto the bridge that links the winter to the spring, the dark to the light, the earth to the stars, and discover the power within you to release, renew and rebirth.
۞ Celestial Insights: Through the lens of astrology, we will explore the relationship between earth and its celestial counterparts. Learning about the planets reveals things about ourselves. Experiencing their energies through ceremony can be a powerful facilitator of understanding. We will focus on discovering the link between our inner selves and the planets and stars. Doing so will deepen our relationship with the planets so that they become friends and allies.
Ꚛ Ancient Wisdom, Modern Healing: Immerse yourself in the fusion of age-old magical practices and contemporary healing techniques. While some of the astrological techniques we will be using are quite ancient, we will be approaching them from a very modern lens. Similarly, while we will also be drawing on traditional Irish and Scottish folk magic, we will bring these traditions into a modern context of ritual and healing.
🌿 Plant Magic and Healing: Delve into the world of herbalism, as June and Karin share their extensive knowledge of plants and their therapeutic properties. Discover how the natural world can enhance your magical and healing practices. Learn how the plants have always been associated with stars and planets since the inception of astrology.
🔮 Nurturing Soul Connections: Tap into the collective wisdom of your soul guides as Karin and June facilitate your connection with your ancestors, spirits, and guardians. Learn how to direct their energies to facilitate healing and personal transformation.
🌙 Ritual Craftsmanship: Master the art of crafting rituals that bridge the gap between your inner world and the outer realm. Create meaningful connections with your natal chart and healing spirits through symbolic actions and transformative ceremonies. Learn how to craft and care for astrological talismans.
