MAURICE FERNANDEZ

The Snake, The Eagle, and the Lion Cycles – Pluto/Jupiter, Pluto/Saturn, Pluto/Uranus, Pluto/Neptune cycles

Pluto’s cycle with the outer planets affects the most fundamental forces of our existence – existence, creation, freewill, and enlightenment. We destroy and rebuild our vessel of consciousness as our soul evolves through these passages.

The End of Illusions – Neptune in your Chart

Neptune represents our fundamental relationship with existence – How we cope with the contrast of pain and suffering alongside incredible beauty and wonder in life. Finding peace in the eye of the storm of existence depends on our endeavor to embrace Truth and relinquish all illusions. Maurice will discuss how Neptune in different chart positions describes how we can attain timeless existential peace.

LAURA NALBANDIAN

The Reclamation Project: Retrogrades and Karmic Astrology

As with so many other areas in astrology, natal retrogrades planets have too many stereotypes to count. Laura will examine and explore retrograde Mercury through Saturn in the natal chart from an evolutionary/karmic point of view.

The Seeds of Unworthiness and the Pathway Out

We all want to feel that we are of worth . . . that our life has value. We struggle, we strive and try to prove our worth to others, hoping that a measure of that will come back to us. The four signs of the Fixed Cross are symbolic representations of four areas or ways we seek value, worth, and love. Laura will explore these basic and primal needs; ultimately offering a pathway to what it is we seek the most ~ to feel our worth.

RICK LEVINE

Peering into the Mind of God

Albert Einstein once said, “I want to know God’s thoughts; the rest are details.” How do cosmology, science and spirituality weave a magic carpet tapestry that supports astrology? What is life? Is our fate written in stone in our horoscopes? What is the relationship between the cosmos and the individual? Big questions. And not the answers you’d expect.

Explorations into the Astrology of Beauty: Venus, Neptune and the Magic Dance of Spirals

Dante Alighieri wrote, “Beauty awakens the soul to act.” But what is beauty? And what’s its relationship to this mysterious thing we call love? How does nature manifest beauty in so many forms? And what does this have to do with “The Da Vinci Code,” the shape of flowers, the rose, the orbit of Venus, Kepler’s quintiles and the Spiral of Life?

KARI NOREN HOSHAL

The Venus Star Points and Conservation Activism

Prominent conservationists such as Linda Tucker, Keeper of the White Lions, Cynthia Hart Button, Keeper of the White Bison, Patricia Cori who works worldwide to preserve dolphins and whales and Prince William whose charity, Tusk, works to save rhinos and elephants in Africa, have strong aspects between their Venus Star Points and important planetary configurations in their birth charts. The Venus Star Point, brought to consciousness by astrologer Arielle Guttman, is the focal point of an eight-year cycle of conjunctions between Venus and the Sun that form a 5-pointed star within the birth chart.

By determining the pre-natal Sun/Venus conjunction, and four remaining star-points, we can see the ways in which these brave individuals were called to service to preserve the earth and her increasingly threatened species. Transits directly related to the VSP indicate the timing in which these conservationists were able to make important breakthroughs in their work. Find out about your own VSP and the unique qualities you can bring to help support the health of the planet.

GALI LIVNEH

Crossing the Threshold – Natal and Pre- Natal Eclipses

What does it mean to be born at the time of an Eclipse and what are the pre- natal Eclipses? In this lecture we will explore the meaning and influence of those personal Eclipses on our lives, and how can we use them to understand ourselves and our evolutionary purpose better.

LINDA TUCKER (Guest of Honor)

White Lions and the Mysteries of Zep Tepi

The sacred meridian of Zep Tepi, located 31 degrees East, passes through the African rift valley and the Egyptian pyramids of Giza. This meridian is considered by ancient traditions to be the line through which life was first created on Earth. On the Southern end of the Meridian, just below the Tropic of Capricorn, emerged the most rare animal on the planet: The White Lion of Timbavati. Documented for the first time only in 1975, the White Lion returned to the planet after having existed mostly in African Legends beforehand.

Zep Tepi Meridian covers the most landmass, but as it crosses the pole to the other side of the globe, it covers the most water and comes closest to the Big Island of Hawaii, where the newest earth on the planet is created through the meeting of fire, water, air, and earth. Linda Tucker discusses the cosmology of this manifestation, the meeting of 4 directions and the significance of the 4 prophetic animals of the zodiac: The lion, the Bull, the Eagle, and the Human.

The Age of Leo/Aquarius and the Prophetic Return of the White Lions

The rarest animal on the planet, and the holiest in Africa, the White Lions returned to the planet only recently after centuries of living in oral legends only. What is the significance of their return in the times we are in, crossing of Ages as the precession of the Equinoxes will soon align with the constellations of Leo and Aquarius in the Spring of the Southern and Northern hemispheres of the planet? Linda will provide greater explanations about these extraordinary cosmic alignments.

MARTY LEEDS (Special Guest)

The Great Zodiacal Pi in the Sky 

This presentation will be looking at the mathematical structure for the English Alphabet and how this structure can be understood through spiritual and esoteric symbolism. We will take a journey through Astrology and other ancient arts: kabbalah, numerology and what is known as English Gematria. We will explore how the Jewish Menorah, the Tetragrammaton, the Emblem of Israel, the Freemasonic Square and Compasses, Dice and the chromatic music scale can all be used to find the numbers to the letters of the English Alphabet. We will then take this number to letter cipher over to the 12 ages of our zodiac and find its relationship to the mathematical constant of pi.  A fascinating perspective!

Death and Resurrection  

The Rising of the Lamb, Passover and the True Meaning of Easter will be an exploration of the zodiac and the 3 month time frame between Christmas, or Dec. 25th to the spring equinox, or Easter. We will be using the English cipher as described above to examine this period of our solar year, as well as the myths, legends and the numbers surrounding this seasonal event. We will be exploring the spiritual, esoteric and mystical deeper meanings within this phenomenon and its relationship to human gestation, death and rebirth and the great cycles both above and below.

We will walk the most beautiful road on the American continent: The magical Red Road, swim in the lava-heated warm ponds, perform ceremony at the Green Lake Crater, walk the newest land on dried lava, and take time for a swim in the womb of Kehena Beach!

Activities will greatly depend on weather patterns and if we are blessed with a Lava entry to the Ocean for a perfect convergence of the four elements: fire, water, air, earth.

See the full schedule below for activities in greater detail.

mauna loa observatory

Reach out to the heavens through this deep immersion post-conference program. Maurice and Special Guest (TBA) are sharing cutting edge knowledge through their special workshops.

See details and scheduled below.

We will close The River of Stars journey in celebration for Astrology Day (March 20), Spring Equinox – a SOLAR ECLIPSE! An auspicious eclipse alignment to honor the star cycles and the sacred practice of astrology through artistic expression: Poetry, Painting (canvas and body), and Ceremony, combined with lava walks on the newest land on the earth.

Join us on this incredible initiation!

Each day of study will be combined with Kundalini Yoga and outings to balance our mental and spiritual work with body and earth.

Workshops

Part 1 – (Special Guest) Marty Leeds: The Astrological Story of Creation (New Take) – (March 16)

How do the cycles in the heavens really relate to our lives on earth? This workshop will be a detailed and exhaustive look at the correlations we may make to the death and birth of the sun every year, human gestation and a geometric story of the creation of our universe. This lecture will focus on how we may come to understand myriad aspects of our creation by understanding that all stories of growth reflect one another. Why has the myth of death and resurrection been so universal? Can we understand the birth of our universe, the Astrology Zodiac, and its inherent sacredness, through simple principles inherent in geometry? Using pi as our lens, can we make sense of our myths, spiritual ideologies and esoteric symbols? We will be using the English number to letter cipher throughout this lecture and explore the implications of how the universal, natural language of mathematics allows us to connect to levels of intelligence higher than our own.

Part 2 – Maurice Fernandez: Vocational Orientation in Astrology (March 17- 19)

During these three days, Maurice will share his new perspective on identifying vocational orientation in the chart. From the 9 to 5 jobs, to the greater calling of destiny, we will identify the primary direction for vocation and career in the chart. This information is essential for Astrology Counseling practice and self-knowledge.

This workshop is part of the Complete Course taught by Maurice Fernandez. It is open to anyone with basic Astrology background.

Tom Kaypacha Lescher: the Sacred Masculine in the Chart (March 19)

“Redefining the Masculine: A Close Look at the Archetype of the Warrior”  We are now creating a new paradigm by leaving old, patriarchal beliefs behind and reintegrating the masculine/feminine in a more balanced way.  As the powerful feminine energy is rising (particularly with Pele in Hawaii), the masculine aspect of our nature also needs to evolve.  This talk will take the planet Mars through the signs discussing it’s expression through the three main evolutionary stages for both men and women.  Please bring your chart and know the sign, house and aspects to your Mars prior to the event.

Part 3 – Celebration of Astrology Day on Solar Eclipse Equinox (March 20)
