There are many fields of astrology and ways to generate charts. Our eclectic team is here to share their practice with you so that you can shape your own.
Everything our team offers is available online. You’ll meet other star-loving queers, trans folx, witches, and allies safely from home during Covid-19 and beyond.
Yes! We’re around! And we love hanging out on Discord to gab about astrology in real time. Ask your questions or get help navigating Discord from our Tech Witch.
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.
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!

A Queer Perspective on
May 11, 2021 –
Jun 1, 2021
In this class we turn our queer eyes to the houses of modern, psychological astrology and traditional astrology. We will walk between the worlds of Placidus and Whole Sign systems to explore the core places of our lives—the 12 houses of astrology.
Students may use the house system they prefer, as we ask these questions: What is the difference between these systems? How does each system change the flavor of your astrology? How do you choose which to use? Can we use more than one, and why?
Tere has used Placidus for 25 years and this system works really well for them. At Starsdance Mystery School, we support diverse interpretations and uses of astrology. We will continue that value in this class.
Sometimes it seems like house system is where most astrologers disagree. What is the queer perspective to the challenge of house systems? What is the third path?
What You’ll Learn:
– Meanings of houses
– Differences in Placidus and Whole Sign
– Magical, spiritual, and psychological approaches to houses

I am a queer, hedge-witch astrologer, who turns toward the Earth and the elements to seek right relationship and wisdom. I love paradox and a multiplicity of perspectives.
