Do you have questions? That’s understandable! Let’s talk.


“I would recommend the Ancestral Patterns course because I have found it invaluable to put my own astrological journey in the contexts of the familial & generational relationships that have helped shaped who I am. I think it’s so important that critical self-reflection is anchored in relationships & communities, which helps, perhaps paradoxically, to de-center the “I” or the ego at times. Through participating in the Ancestral Patterns course, I have also found great value in hearing other people’s family stories & how they react & respond to the patterns that have emerged in their & their family’s lives because it helps build empathy and an appreciation for the diverse journeys we are all on.”

“The Astro-Erotics course was fascinating as we learned, through our natal charts and Nate’s passionate and deep knowledge of astrology and mythology, about our tendencies and desires in everything from love affairs, partnerships and the unspoken underworld. I specifically solidified the fact that having emotional connections with lovers, casual to serious, is beneficial to me and I was delighted to discover how much wildness and transformation I can experience with lovers. I also learned the archetype Virgo, that is in service to society, is the typical person I end up in partnerships with and that has held true and continues to! It’s also fun to observe Nate reading other people’s charts in the class and learning about all the signs and symbols, patterns and nuances of beautiful natal charts. Lastly it’s a lovely group to be a part of every week.”

“ The Astro-Erotics course did what religious texts & psychoanalysis & therapy could not: it gave me a language to talk about my experience, rich in metaphor & symbolism, but still grounded in real world experiences. I found that my devotion to Aphrodite grew deeper, as did my understanding of my relationships. The course gives a résumée of major astrological themes, and explains their relevant application to an erotic way of life, which is understood as appreciation of, and participation in, the desire of the world.”

“In the Ancestral Patterns course, the biggest reveal to me was learning that both my parents were “rebels” and trying to escape their constrained families of origin. That gave me a whole new window into their dance – it highlighted how their choosing to marry actually put them back into “norms” that then constrained them again. I also learned that there were very strong patterns at least on one side of the family that repressed the female,  my mother recognized on some level, but she did not have the strength or the courage or the capacity to support or champion her own daughter. The insights gained in the Ancestral Patterns course open up to patterns among humans & learning about chances to understand more deeply & give oxygen to oneself, and sometimes a demilitarized zone in a family system- that choice of words may be specific to my family because so many people were in the actual military, but also the power war between genders. It can be very freeing to have a holding space for issues with no resolution.”

“I went into the Astro-Erotics class not knowing what to expect and I was still surprised! The homework was simple but required me to really dig deep. There was no way to half ass this. This class asked for me to be vulnerable in a way I didn’t expect, and it kind of scared me, but the other participants were so warm & vulnerable that I felt safe to open up a little more than I would have otherwise. It was also evident that these were your “people,” there was already a familiarity & rapport, so even though I didn’t know anyone else, I felt a sense of belonging right away.”
