Our Invitation

This first gathering in this five-part series, “Animism, Ancestors, and…” will focus on our relationships with the celestial bodies as they speak through our everyday lives and the unfolding of our specific destinies here on Earth. Astrology will be explored as a body of teachings and practices that can support Earth connection, psychological and cultural wellness, and greater connection with vastness and awe.

Amidst the catastrophe of our times, the Earth still sings through and around us with ancient wisdom and magic. This innate belonging and joy is fundamentally good and also our nature as human beings. In this series, we’ll ask how animist ethics—respect and love for our greater web of kinship—can help us to navigate accelerated Earth changes and bring fresh perspective and energy to the traditions that already nourish our path.

This event will be hosted by Pallas Augustine with the Ancestral Medicine Practitioner Network and two esteemed guests Diana Rose and Renee Sills. Pallas is co-founder of Idola Stellarum, creating devotional and educational resources and community for the practice of relational astrological magic. Diana is the author of the guidebook for The Rosebud Tarot, relational astrologer and writer. Renee is the founder of Embodied Astrology and second generation astrologer, intuitive, and somatic educator. See below for more on their work in the world.

We’ll explore topics like:

Our time will include:

We are made of vastness and old magic, fashioned in the very specific shape of our one precious body, life, and destiny.

Our time will be held in a kind and culturally inclusive spirit for participants of all backgrounds. Those new to the material as well as seasoned astrologers are likely to find something of benefit.

This event is part of a larger series that includes four other teachings on Animism, Ancestors and…Herbalism, Activism, Psychedelics, and Yoga. This series also serves to highlight two of our foundational courses, Ancestral Lineage Healing and Practical Animism. Thousands have taken these courses since 2017 and have gone on to take the teachings into their practices, professions, families, and activism.
