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!
★ 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
★ 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.
We know that life can be hectic. All of our offerings can be viewed, stored, and studied at your own pace. Customize your notification settings too!
The agreements of our space allow for safe and healthy community discussions. We welcome all races, genders, and life experiences.
We honor that the source of our tradition is non white and offer gratitude to ancestors of color who have helped us connect with the stars.
Queer astrology reveals the mysteries of the Universe, moments in time and our own unique spirit. Decode and embrace yours with us!
Astrology Book Club
Jul 13, 2021 –
Sept 28, 2021
Our first book group is going to read and discuss together Postcolonial Astrology by Alice Sparkly Kat.
The book begins this way: “ASTROLOGY IS OFTEN compared to race. Both are exercises in imagination, pattern making, and the making of types. Both astrology and race are types of magical thinking and are not rational. Both astrology and race are social constructs and are rooted in the circulations of culture.“
As a lover and a critic of astrology, I can’t wait to discuss the wonderful ideas in this book with other folk who want to question the colonizing roots of astrology and re-imagine an astrology more in alignment with the values of shared and accountable relationships. Would you like to do that too? The book group will be limited to 12 people. We will meet via Zoom every two weeks on these dates:
Tues, Jul 13
Tues, Jul 27
Tues, Aug 10
Wed, Aug 25 (note day of week change)
Tues. Sep 14
Tues Sep 28
For one hour starting at 7 pm CDT Participation will be open to people who are signed up for the $5-a-month tier on Patreon. However, you can still register if that fee is prohibitive for you. Everyone who wants to participate must fill out this registration form. https://forms.gle/Y2wmNgFubhi2c3Yo6. Limited to the first 12 people who register. In addition to the Zoom discussion meetings, we will have a channel on our Discord server to post about the book and how it is impacting you.
This book group is not affiliated with Alice Sparkly Kat or the publisher of Postcolonial Astrology.
