Find Right

We are mindful of the personal and collective work we need to do to get in right relationship with the land, histories of oppression, and cultural appropriation present in astrology and magic.

Modern Mystics

Queer Astrology is the lens that we use as educators, allies and channels of the divine. We believe that by challenging normativity and embracing radical self expression, we become more in tune with the mysteries of our Universe.

It is our intention to empower members to explore various methods of astrological interpretation while also questioning how culture and bias have influenced its principles.

“Queer Astrology is a tool to build a world where queer humans can thrive.”

Cabra Woodwell, Starsdance Team Member

The Starsdance Mystery School team encourages students to add their own unique flavor when analyzing the mysteries above us: we do not claim to have all the answers. We are responsive to the kind of astrology our students ask to be taught while also refusing to teach ideas we know are tools of oppression.

We aim to make knowledge accessible and view queerphobia, transphobia, ableism, racism and classism in all their forms as a barrier to access.

Join us and we will do our best to help you connect with the stars from your own center!

Our Values

Accountability: holding ourselves and others responsible for actions taken or not taken

Anti-Racism: unpacking our privilege and the threads of white supremacy in our culture

Courage: consciously living in alignment with our truth even when we are afraid

Our sigil and logo: a black and white line drawing of a large eye enclosed within a triangle pointing downward. On the top left of the triangle is a comet and two eight pointed stars. On the top right point of the triangle is are the rings of saturn. On the bottom of the triangle is a crescent moon opening upwards. Each point also has a small sun glyph with three dots moving out from the center.

Diversity: including and welcoming all backgrounds and life experiences

Empathy: feeling with others as a means of authentic connection and intimacy

Equity: eliminating barriers of access and offering what is needed based on each individual

Liberation: reclaiming power from those who seek to diminish us as well as others

Social Justice: committing to direct action against inequality, ableism, and oppression.
