This is your opportunity to explore astrology as a tool to better understand life, death, and evolution with five expert voices of modern astrology.

We are living through a revolution of consciousness that is pushing experts in diverse fields to break with contemporary mechanistic models, as they reclaim the validity of magical ancient spiritual traditions. Astrology is at the forefront of this revolution, having served humanity through the centuries across all indigenous cultures of the globe.

Today, astrology is not only a tool to track future cycles, but also one of the most profound bodies of knowledge for self-realization. Knowing about your own chart can be catalytic, helping you resolve karmic tangles, manifest your true potential, and harmonize with the highest of your soul purposes.

In this special weekend conference, join five experts of modern astrology on an intellectual and spiritual adventure in consciousness as they share a grounded approach to timeless star knowledge. Together, they weave their individual threads of thought into a beautiful cosmic tapestry. 

Whatever your level of astrological knowledge, you emerge from this weekend with a clear perspective of astrology, how it affects your own life, and the significant role it is playing in the great shift we are experiencing here on planet Earth.

Please note: Teachers are subject to change.


Things to Bring

Please note that Omega will not be providing yoga mats to borrow, so you must bring one with you or purchase a mat at the Omega Store.

You are invited to bring your own sacred objects to build the altar.


Please note there is a special schedule for this course:


4:00 p.m.–7:00 p.m.
Check In (Rooms available after 5:00 p.m.)

8:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m.
The Venus Star, Our Connection to a Heart-Centered Cosmos with Arielle Guttman

Many of us are aware of our own personal (natal) Venus position, but few are aware that she, together with Earth, form a beautiful heart-shaped pentagonal pattern as they orbit around the sun. Arielle demonstrates the five star points on the world chart and how they are relevant to the current timeline.

The Venus-Neptune Octave with Maurice Fernandez
Venus, a personal planet, rules two signs, Taurus and Libra. Its higher octave, the transpersonal Neptune, rules Pisces. We explore how these three signs working together represent the natural expression of divine harmony, gratitude, and love.

Astrology for Parents with Magali Morales
The natal chart is a map with valuable information about our gifts, lessons, and purpose in this lifetime. Interpreting a child's chart for their parents increases empathy, removes judgment, and allows for greater understanding. How does a child learn? What are their greatest talents that need developing? How can we best teach a child to cope with adversity, to rest and recover, to nurture their intellect and imagination? We can begin to answer these questions with the help of the natal chart.

Healing Force of Jupiter in Your Chart with Anne Ortelee
Using your natal Jupiter Placement, we'll talk about how to access Jupiter as a healer to your soul!

The Astrology of Spiritual Awakening with Kay Taylor
The astrology chart shows your personal path of integration and wholeness, even the “how” and “when” of spiritual growth, whether it’s major shift potential, or practical ways to be in tune with your need for annual retreat or spiritual study. We’ll explore how this deeper meaning of the chart’s potential may support your higher path.



7:00 a.m.–7:40 a.m.
Optional Hatha Yoga with Kay Taylor
From cosmos to earth, we’ll move with the breath in a gentle, invigorating hatha yoga practice designed to be accessible for all body types and levels of experience. Optional. Bring a yoga mat.

9:00 a.m.–10:30 a.m.
Conscious Love Through Relationships with Kay Taylor

Relationships are an important part of our life path and can be a source of conscious love—or karmically habitual. As we take responsibility for understanding and integrating the gifts and challenges clearly defined in the chart, rather than endlessly seeking the perfect mate or trying to change those around us, relationships transform. We’ll look at both natal charts and the composite relationship chart.

10:35 a.m.–12:05 p.m. 
Jupiter and Neptune: Our Spiritual Guides with Anne Ortelee

Jupiter and Neptune met up in Pisces on April 12, 2022. Both rule Pisces, so their union is particularly auspicious for hopes, dreams, and spiritual work. The last time Jupiter and Neptune met in Pisces was March 17, 1856.  We explore the worldwide meaning of these two teachers and what they say about our next 13 and 166 years.

2:00 p.m.–3:45 p.m. 
The Love Force in the Astrology Chart with Maurice Fernandez

Most scriptures agree, the meaning of life is centered in the force of love—it heals all and frees the soul from bondage. Yet there are distinct expressions and meanings to the force of love, each captured in astrology by different planets, including the moon, the sun, Venus, or Neptune. Maurice describes how each expression of love is integral to our own enlightenment code.

3:55 p.m.–5:30 p.m. 
Connecting to Your Venus Star with Arielle Guttman

The Star of Venus contains five points and slowly moves through time as the cosmic heartbeat of our solar system. Discover how you are connected to this cosmic heartbeat by locating your own Venus star point and how to enhance your personal life by knowing how to use it for self-expression and joy.

8:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m.
Astrology Ceremony for Grieving and Healing with Magali Morales and faculty

Our astrologer ancestors and indigenous people of all traditions have used the power of ceremony to align themselves with the highest intentions and divine purpose. We gather under the stars to perform a powerful ritual to support our personal and collective transformation in these times of great transition.

During the ritual, we express our gratitude for the blessings that are present in our lives (water), grieve and release what we no longer need (fire), invite in what we want to create in our lives (air), and make a commitment to share our best gifts with the world (earth).

You are invited to bring your own sacred objects to build the altar


7:00 a.m.–7:40 a.m.
Optional Kundalini Yoga with Maurice Fernandez

Aligning body with spirit with the sacred practice of Kundalini yoga is the perfect way to commence a special day exploring the vastness of cosmic riddles.

Our faculty equips us with prescient insights as the cosmic clock marks its upcoming cycles for 2022 and 2023. We return to the world empowered and inspired.

9:00 a.m.–9:30 a.m.
Saturn in Pisces: The Taskmaster Floats In with Kay Taylor

Saturn moves into the sign of Pisces in March 2023. What will this mean for the world? What will it mean in your life? We’ll explore how the planet of structure and accomplishment in the sign of oneness and compassion will affect key areas of life over the next three years.

9:30 a.m.–10:00 a.m.
Pluto in Aquarius 2022-2043 with Magali Morales

From 1532-1553, Pluto in Aquarius saw the Protestant and Anglican churches end Catholic hegemony in Western Europe, and the beginning of colonization and the transatlantic slave trade. From 1777-1797, Pluto in Aquarius saw the French Revolution, the start of the Industrial Revolution, and Herschel’s discovery of Uranus.

What will the next Pluto journey through the sign of the water bearer bring? Will we act together to mitigate the climate crisis—a result of the ages of colonization and industrialism?

10:05 a.m.–10:35 a.m.
Jupiter/Uranus/North Node with Maurice Fernandez

Heaven meets earth as the two mind-expanding planets travel the sign of matter. What does this mean for us, our economy, the times to come, and ability to thrive in our lives?

10:45 a.m.–11:15 a.m.
Mars Retrograde in Gemini with Anne Ortelee

We explore the Mars retrograde in Gemini to understand what actions the Lord of Action wants us to take.

11:15 a.m.–11:45 a.m.
The Dawning of a New Era with the Venus Star Shift with Arielle Guttman

In October 2022, the Venus star will enter the air element of Libra for the first time in 150 years. During the 2020s, there is a shifting of world priorities that needs to match the qualities of this transition between Scorpio and Libra. What can we expect from this new Libra energy—and how do we move forward?

11:45 a.m.–Noon 

1:00 p.m.

The above schedule is subject to change at the discretion of the faculty.
