Astrology is a medium for connecting with others. It's a community practice. It constellates us together while we remember who we are. The root of constellation means "together with the stars" - of course astrology brings us together with the stars! Tears!
In this special episode, my collaborator Jonathan Koe and I host a conversation with five beautiful humans who participated in our 2021-22 astrological learning space Charting Your Course.

- What trepidations they experienced in terms of learning together and being in a long-term learning container.
- What they learned about being with yourself and being in community since learning astrology within the community.
