EVOLUTIONARY ASTROLOGY IMMERSIONS:
CHIRON: Embodied Astrological Immersion – June 10, 2023 at Yoga Sanctuary Minneapolis
CHIRON: Embodied Astrological Immersion
We will explore the mythic origins of Chiron, the “wounded healer,” a centaur born half-horse, half-human, who was rejected and abandoned by his parents at birth and later wounded by a poisoned arrow, which could never fully heal. The story of Chiron centers around this wounding and how he was able to source profound empathy for himself and others, as well as great healing power from the process of compassionately, gently tending these wounds over time. Chiron became a great teacher, seer and healer, known by many throughout the land.
Our time together will include:
If you wish to purchase a Chiron reading, please add the fee for the reading ($75) onto the amount you send for the Chiron Immersion via Zelle, Venmo or PayPal and please write me a little note to let me know your payment includes the Chiron reading. Thank you! And, if you are doing a payment plan, the amount for the reading can be added to that and paid over time.
LILITH: Embodied Astrological Immersion – Sept 30 + Oct 1, 2022
LILITH: Embodied Astrological Immersion
We explore Lilith’s potentiality in our birth charts and in our lives as represented uniquely in astrology by Asteroid Lilith, Dark Moon Lilith and True Black Moon Lilith. These Lilith symbols guide us in a 3-fold spiral journey of freeing ourselves layer by layer of patriarchal conditioning, manipulation and pain and of equipping ourselves to effectively disrupt systems of oppression that we may collectively create realities beyond.
–Asteroid Lilith = the function of CRITICALLY EXAMINING how patriarchy operates, coming to CLEARLY RECOGNIZE and UNDERSTAND PATRIARCHY’S PLAYBOOK inside and out that we may effectively CONFRONT and DISRUPT its destructive, insidious abuses of power.
–Dark Moon Lilith = the function of METABOLIZING PATRIARCHY’S IMPACT upon us. PROCESSING through patriarchal WOUNDING and TRANSMUTING our GRIEF and RAGE at all that has been distorted, demonized and lost.
–True Black Moon Lilith = represents the NONDUAL, NONBINARY CONSCIOUSNESS within us where we REMEMBER who we are and what we know (PRE-PATRIARCHY). From this place, we have the capacity to EMBODY OUR WHOLENESS and COLLECTIVELY BIRTH NEW REALITIES and CHOICES into being BEYOND imperialist, white supremacist, capitalist hetero-patriarchy (bell hooks).
OUR TIME TOGETHER INCLUDES:
–Historical Exploration: Pre-Patriarchy + Origins of Patriarchy
–Mythological Exploration: Lilith
–Astrological Exploration: Asteroid Lilith, Dark Moon Lilith + True Black Moon Lilith
–Organic Movement to Music
–Healing Circle (which can involve physical touch or the option for no touch)
Please bring your own dinner to have on Saturday evening. We’ll have a 45-minute dinner time together before moving into our evening ritual.
Each participant will receive a copy of their birth chart with the 3 Lilith symbols included.
You will also receive a handout with descriptions of the signs and houses from an evolutionary astrological lens. As we unpack the 3 Lilith symbols, you may apply the sign and house descriptions to the Lilith placements in your own birth chart.
Please make sure to read through the details below (cancellation policy + covid-19 policy).

REAL TALK: Relationships + Sexuality – An Astrological Immersion for Womxn Jan 18-19, 2020
REAL TALK: Relationships + Sexuality – An Astrological Immersion for Womxn
In this evening + daylong immersion, we dedicate our time together to REAL TALK about relationships and sexuality. We explore platonic love, casual dating/sex, longterm commitment, monogamy, forms of polyamory, open relationship (and much more) – honoring all sexualities.
We engage astrology as a tool to stimulate expansion and possibility beyond the severely limiting heteronormative, patriarchal scripts we’ve been given. This cultural conditioning can blind us to our own deepest desires for honest, authentic connection and expression. It also limits what forms of love are recognized and celebrated in our culture.
Human love varies in its objects and expressions. Love exists on a beautiful, sprawling spectrum. –Kathryn Ormsbee
Woven throughout our astrological study and discussion will be music, movement, poetry, time for reflection and individual sharing on relationship/sexuality. Please wear clothing in which you feel most comfortable (layers).
6–WEEK EVOLUTIONARY ASTROLOGY SERIES:
If you are interested in deepening your astrological exploration within an intimate setting with individuals 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 circle (deep sharing, intentional held space, ritual) + evolutionary astrological study and exploration of each person’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. Beginners to astrology are completely welcome! The only pre-requisite is having had a birth chart reading with Jessa prior to the series.
PLEASE NOTE: Currently, no in-person series are scheduled. Watch for online group experiences coming soon! You may view a couple of past series descriptions below:
MARS: HEARTS ABLAZE – SERIES IS FULL (Thurs nights)
MARS: Hearts Ablaze
Each week, we will have structured time for check-in/sharing. During our first evening together, I will give a talk on Mars. In weeks 2–5, we will dive into individual chart analysis and discussion. Our last evening together will culminate in a Courage-Building Ritual.
Prerequisite to a series: You must have had an Evolutionary Astrology Birth Chart Reading with Jessa prior to the series.
LILITH & SAPPHO – SERIES IS FULL (Monday nights)
LILITH & SAPPHO
Each week, we will begin by grounding/centering, followed by 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 Lilith & Sappho. Our last evening together will culminate in ritual.
Typically, you begin a circle as strangers but very quickly become so much more than friends. We laugh and cry together and share intimacies that we may have never shared with anyone else, knowing it is held in the utmost confidence, without judgment. This is true healing. Jessa is a master at creating space to explore our vulnerability. There are no words to describe what I’ve received from being a part of these women’s circles. The experience is truly magical. We need more of these circles to heal ourselves and heal the world. The bonus is you get to learn about astrology, ritual and a bunch of other really cool things, but the main thing is you learn about yourself!
