Stellar Synergy [a core teaching in Wild Presence] with Ixchel is mind-blowing. In it, they share their synthesis of Flow activators, neurochemicals, and the energy of the luminaries (planets, Sun and moon) and help us see ways to apply that knowledge to our creativity, Flow cycles, and body of work, honing our awareness of where colonial time derails us and helping us protect Flow Time (hint: daily composting helps!). Just brilliant.
The course connected so many dots for me. Ixchel’s resources are vast and they share generously. The music they gathered for the luminaries is WOW. The astro apps and archetypes, and the vast wisdom from lived experience and practice, are so helpful.
A tangible and immediate result for me is that this is the first time in years of classes and readings with both western and vedic astrologers that I’ve been inspired to actually meet my astrology chart. To print it, look at it, learn it, and hear what it has to say to me. In that way, I learned that a key piece of my work - the wild feminine - is right there in my chart! And the learnings continue.
While before, I was waiting and hoping that someone else would tell me what my chart says (and by extension who I am), this course with Ixchel opened my capacity for a direct relationship with the luminaries. I’m so excited now to be learning my chart for the first time and reflecting on how it’s played out in my life. Of course guidance helps - what’s a yod? - but Ixchel’s wealth of wisdom, intuition, and guidance in this course opened the door for me to apply myself to understanding it without an intermediary.
That personal relationship is HUGE. I’m going slow and letting slowness be okay. I feel a friendliness with Time and the luminaries. Just as years ago I expanded my capacity for a relationship with nature and the Earth, now I’m feeling the expansion of a relationship with the luminaries, too. I’ve always loved starlight, moonlight, and water. Now I can FEEL them in my life. How could we be lonely, with so many friends? Such a beautiful course, and it’s still working me. Thank you, Ixchel!
