Women's Astrological Series

WOMEN’S 6–WEEK EVOLUTIONARY ASTROLOGY SERIES

If you are interested in deepening your astrological exploration within an intimate setting (my home) with a small group of women who are all on a path of self-understanding and soul growth, this is an opportunity that is available. No astrological experience is necessary, except having had a birth chart reading with me before the series begins.

These series are a blending of sacred women’s circle (deep sharing, intentional held space, ritual) + evolutionary astrological study and exploration of each woman’s birth chart.

Each series is a closed group (no drop-ins) to create as safe, predictable and cohesive a container as possible to facilitate depth of connection, continuity and capacity for vulnerability. Space is limited in each series to 8 women.

Prerequisite to a series: You must have had an Evolutionary Astrology Birth Chart Reading with Jessa prior to the series. No other astrological knowledge/experience is necessary. Beginners to astrology are completely welcome!

SATURN: The Wise Elder

Thursdays, January 4–February 8, 2018 in Uptown Minneapolis
 
7pm–9/9:30pm (end time between 9-9:30pm)
 
Make it real.“ –Saturn
 

In this 6-week Women’s Evolutionary Astrology Series, we explore the grounded, hard won wisdom of Saturn (Earth element, Ruler of Capricorn and the 10th house).


Saturn seeks concrete manifestation, bringing dreams into reality. Two feet on the ground. When we invoke our inner Saturn, we commit to climbing the mountain all the way to the top, to wrestle demons of self-doubt, self-defeat and exhaustion on the way up, and goddammit, no way turning back, come hell or high water! Deep Commitment. Eye on the Prize. Mastery. Great Work. This is the territory of Saturn.
The positive development of Saturnian energy leads to a sense of dignity and self-respect. We study Saturn in our birth charts to understand where and how this aspect within our psyches wants to develop in this lifetime. This also leads us to examine where we might be up against feelings of lack, defeat, loneliness, self-pity, freeze-response, pessimism and impossibility.
When we skillfully develop our Saturn energy, we embody a healthy sense of realism, grounded practicality, follow-through, unshakable integrity and the capacity to make grounded choices that enable us to bring our ideals into form. We learn how to digest our life experience, thereby becoming wise. Through this wisdom, we come to hold a torch worthy of passing to others.

Fee for the 6–week series: $250
(which breaks down to approx $40/session)

MOON MYSTERIES: Phases of the Moon

Mondays, January 8–February 12, 2018 in Uptown Minneapolis
 
7pm–9/9:30pm (end time between 9-9:30pm)

In this 6-week Women’s Evolutionary Astrology Series, we enter into the mysteries of the waxing and waning cycles of the Moon. The Moon in our birth charts represents the heart and soul within us; realm of feeling, emotion, intuition and dreams (the kind we have when our eyes are closed). The Moon represents our inner world. The phase of the Moon one is born under illuminates the feeling tone or mood averaged over the course of a lifetime, like the backdrop of one’s inner life. Each phase has its unique high potential and shadow, as well as specific keys to happiness.


In this series, you will learn how to determine the phase of the Moon in a birth chart, and we will explore in-depth the phase of the Moon in each woman’s chart in the group. The 8 phases are as follows: New Moon, Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Last Quarter and Waning Crescent. We will also connect the Pagan/Earth holy days that have affinity with the phase of each woman’s Moon, such as Winter Solstice and the New Moon phase.
 
Each week, there will be structured time for check-in/sharing, then we will move into chart analysis and discussion. During our first evening together, I will give a talk on the waxing and waning cycles of the Moon, as well as the Dark half and the Bright half of the Lunar cycle. Our last evening together will culminate in a Moon/Soul ritual.
 
Poem by 14th century female poet, Lalla (born in Kashmir):
 

“The soul, like the moon,
is new, and always new again.

 And, I have seen the ocean
continuously creating.
Since I scoured my mind
and my body, I too am new,
each moment anew.
My teacher told me one thing,
‘Live in the soul.’
When that was so,
I began to go naked,
and dance.”

There’s so much I could say about the truly transformational nature of Jessa’s planetary series, but what keeps standing out is the joy that comes from the experience of engaging in self-inquiry within the context of community. Often our spiritual paths can feel so personal and, at times, a bit lonely. Yet, Jessa’s series allowed me the opportunity to find greater clarity about my own path within the embrace of circle of women. Such an embrace allowed for an upsurge of acceptance and love. It allowed for strength to face life’s challenges and move toward the greatest gifts I can manifest in this lifetime.  To have a community recognize and lift up those gifts is truly a magical feeling.
