Originally delivered live 2014-2015, this playful powerful exploration of astrology is a collaboration between Mary Swanson, Laura Tabet and Jenafer Owen. Register now to receive access to the Spring Quarter Archetypes. Each week, starting Monday March 26th, you'll find a prerecorded lesson available including Introductions to the Archetype with Mary Swanson, Art Journaling on the themes with Jenafer Joy, and Go Deeper Exploration and Meditation with Laura Tabet.
If you want to work through the archetype in step with the astrological year, expect to spend an hour a week. Or engage in the lessons in your own timing! All audios, video, and handouts are available indefinitely.
Spring Quarter includes explorations of Mars, our most Sacred Selfishness, our deepest most true Desires. Venus, our capacity for thorough enjoyment and satisfaction. And Mercury, our need for stimulation, new information and cross-pollination...
"I was drawn to the SkyMagic experience to gain a deeper understanding of astrological archetypes of my tarot deck. In the way these things often play out, my life has had a curious synchronicity with each of the archetypes explored. Having the container of the course to offer meaning and symbolism to the unfolding, as well as to understand what has been and what will be, has been deeply supportive to me... I love the synergy of the three wise women teachers, Mary, Jena and Laura, with the art, ritual, astrology and archetypal genius of each of them bringing the themes of the astrological archetypes to my different learning areas. It is working for me! I would love for more of my friends and community to be taking this course with me, so I can geek out on archetypes, astrology, images (and tarot) with them. I'm so grateful for Sky Magic. ~ Heidi"
"I appreciate the framework Sky Magic's archetypes provide for delving in to different aspects of being human, both in a general sense and as one particular individual. At the end of each month long journey of meditation, art, and sharing, I feel like I have glimpsed some hidden or forgotten truth. ~ Kimberly"
"Sky Magic is a well-balanced exploration of the mythical underpinnings of astrology. There is much to choose from here--guided meditations, art projects, altar-making, ritual and just good information. What is not to like? As a result, I am learning to be more comfortable being myself instead of what I think I am "supposed" to be. I look forward to each week and some delicious surprise!"
"Off and on I have tried to learn about astrology, picking up a book here or there. But honestly, astrology has been befuddling and bewildering. Until now! The pace of the Sky Magic classes are perfect for both busy daily life and to allow sufficient time to savor, study, and really learn about each archetype. The weekly lessons and the structure break down astrology into meaningful components. Instead of having to grasp the entire picture, we can take little slices, understand them conceptually, and relate it to our own life, our own circumstances, growth & evolution. Each teacher's perspective is unique and is an individual invitation to explore each archetype in a rich, meaningful manner. I am so delighted to participate in this program!"
I love talking Astrology. I first started studying Astrology when I was 13 years old and have never stopped. It's such a rich way to look at life! In SkyMagic, we have a whole month to invoke and investigate the energies of each particular astrological character. Each step along the path, each week of the month we get a whole new awareness of how that energy operates in our life and what our relationship to it is all about.
After years of graduate studies in astrology, myth, psychology, the arts, mysticism, the energy-body and human imagination, I know the true power of evoking the archetypes. I also know that the MOST FUN way is by meeting them inside of your own imagination. When we connect to these energies in an embodied way they truly alter our experience of life from the inside out. These aspects of the psyche are available to guide you and are standing by simply waiting for you to ask.
I LOVE this series. Laura & Mary are my favorites conspirators when it comes to exploring the wild and playful terrain of astrology! I could listen to either of them talk about any given topic all day long and am always excited for the twice monthly talks. It's been so satisfying to create art journaling prompts and add them to the juicy mix of meditations, dares and joyful explorations. I've found each week is truly exactly what I need. And I know the same will be true for you. Do join us.
