The Temple of the Living Sky

TOPIC: Where can the source material of our sacred science be found: in the ancient scriptures or further underground? Perhaps we should seek the cosmic keys in the archetypal language of our dreams. Or perhaps astrology is the poetic breath of nature and we will re-member the roots of the rules and the proofs of the equations we use by entering the temple of the living sky. Gemini Brett is here to offer some “how” to that “why” of the sacred astronomical art by transmitting embodied techniques that will teach you to see the chart in the sky and the sky in the chart…

BIO: Gemini Brett is a shamanic starry-teller and inspiring educator best known for his devotion to reconnecting astrologers with the sacred astronomy of the living sky. His terrestrial translations of the celestial conversation expressed through the ancient arts of sacred geometry, musical harmony, embodied astronomy, and number magic activate seasoned sages as much as they initiate students new to the cosmic curriculum.

Brett’s passion, dedication, and innovation were recently honored by the Organization for Professional Astrology, who presented him with the 2020 Orion Award for Outstanding Contribution to Astrology. Learn more about Brett at and @gemini_brett on Instagram and Facebook.

The Saturn-Uranus Squares of 2021: Rapid-Fire Maturity & Liberation

TOPIC: Saturn and Uranus square off throughout the year—the key transits of 2021, sparking tremendous change and liberation. The energies of restraint and instant liberation, maturity and rebellion, are sandpapering each other, creating the perfect circumstances for fast-paced growth and maturity. Working together, these planets are even speeding up our timeline. Saturn is Lord of Time, while Uranus operates outside the bounds of space-time. We are quickening our pace, breaking out of impossible ruts and outworn patterns. How will this affect us personally and collectively? How can we best harness these energies so that we can experience more freedom and less difficulty? Join Astrologer Juliana McCarthy of Ethereal Culture and learn about these life-changing transits. Looking forward!

By mapping out your Local Space Lines, you will be able to pick the best place in your living area to set up your altar, meditation, or healing space.
