Experiential Class:

Activating Healthy Mars Energy Within and Preparing for Mars Retrograde


In this class, you will experience your personal, healthy Mars energy in your physical body.  This includes exercises that explore what you burn for, the quality of energy of your natal Mars phase and how this gets expressed in your life through the condition of Mars in your natal chart.  Once you are connected to your natural, healthy Mars energy, then you can begin to prepare for the upcoming Mars retrograde this autumn. You will learn to create space in the expression of your natural Mars energy for the transformation of it that lies ahead.  This year, Mars goes retrograde in his own sign of Aries, which hasn't happened for 32 years.  Also on his journey this fall, Mars conjuncts the discordant asteroid Eris and squares the current stellium in Capricorn.  You will learn the meaning of these events, when they occur and how to prepare for them in your physical body.  You will also learn how this important retrograde will impact your own natal chart and receive personalized exercises that will aid you this fall. 

This class is done on Zoom.  It is not "sit and get."  Expect to be moving!

This class will answer the following questions:

  • What is the natural source of my inner drive?

  • How can I become more skillful at setting healthy boundaries?

  • How can I identify and honor my own natural way of protecting and defending what is rightfully mine?

  • How can I take care of myself during the upcoming Mars retrograde?

  • How can I link the upcoming Mars retrograde with my deepest intentions to transform how I am currently using my energy?

Due to the depth of this work and the time needed to give each person individualized attention, this class is limited to 8 participants.  

The following is a tentative schedule of the class.
