Tracking the Relationship Evolution in Your Birth Chart

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2023, 3pm - 6:30pm PST/6pm - 9:30pm EST/

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2023, 8am AEST - 11:30am AEST


The workshop will be recorded, so you do NOT need to be there live, although we would love to have you there live!

Did you know that there are asteroids in astrology related to Shiva, Parvati, Lalita, and more?

Would you like to explore how your natal chart can help you to understand and transform in your personal dance and evolution of relationship?

We often think of Venus and Mars being a primary way to explore the dynamics of masculine and feminine and relationship in astrology.

However, the journey can be so much deeper, more nuanced, and transformative when we dive into the chart from Venus and Mars to Shiva and Shakti.

This approach to the birth chart offers an alternative pathway to the Greco-Roman model and one that is more inclusive of our spiritual, yogic, and Tantric orientations and practices.

In this workshop, we will explore the positions of:

  • Hygeia/Lalita
  • Shiva and Parvati
  • Kali and Durga/Black Moon

**All Participants in the workshop will also receive their natal chart placements of these asteroids.**

This workshop will guide you through exploring each of these archetypes in your own birth chart and in your life.

We will explore the birth charts of volunteers in the workshop while using a question and answer format to deepen and enrich the use of these archetypes in our understanding of ourselves and our relationships.

We will then conclude with a brief meditation and a taste of the magic of experiential astrology.

Daniel Sowelu has been pioneering the integration of the Shiva Shakti archetypes into the Western astrology chart for many years. His work is an enriching addition to understanding the unique and multilayered aspects of our relationship evolution ultimately aimed at experiencing the sacred marriage within and without.

Martha Alter Hines has a deep relationship with the exploration of the masculine and feminine in the birth chart, in the personal transformational journey, and in life.

If you are wanting to deepen your understanding of your own relationship journey, your own relationship evolution, and if you want new tools for healing and thriving in your own life, please join us!

People of all genders and sexual orientations are welcome and celebrated.

In addition, people of all levels of astrological knowledge or experience are welcome as well, from beginners to practicing astrologers, and in between.

We would love to have you as part of this beautiful community healing and learning space!
