Uncovering the Sweetness of Life

In 2023-24, with Pluto slipping from Capricorn to Aquarius and back three times (Revolution on the most foundational level), and Jupiter conjoining Uranus in Taurus in the Spring, (Visionary Sweetness) the cosmic weather is calling us to dismantle the machinery of self-negation and uncover the sweetness of life.

The 20-year period begun with Pluto entering Aquarius in the Spring of 2023 is a wake-up call for our species to break out of the delusion that anything's more important than love. When we banish anti-love forces from our psychic space, the sweetness of being a spirit in a body in the physical plane blooms up from the ashes of the past, and renews your soul's contract with incarnation.

This year's College of Visionaries & Wizards' programs are designed to help you dissolve whatever stands between you and the depth magic of your unique nature and fuller arrival here during this crossroads of the ages.

Join our team of spiritual outlaws for a journey through love and revolution beginning this Autumn.

Monthly Class: Sun Signs for our Times with Mark Borax

Last Saturdays. Begins September 30th to Aug 31st: 3:30 - 5 pm Eastern

This year-long course meets on the final Saturday of every month. Soul Level Astrologer Mark Borax will introduces each sign as a rigorous journey from self-ignorance to self-actualization.

Drawing upon thirty years of depth counseling others through his astrology of the soul, Mark explodes sun-
sign clichés to present a wholly original take on the zodiac.

Join Mark and his band of spiritual outlaws as we explore the twelve-part art of being human.  Based on his new book The Ruby Heart of the Dragon: Sun Signs for our Times, this class allows participants to ask questions and apply his take on the 3 Points of the Dragon in your own life: your Ruby Heart, which is your Sun Sign, the Dragon’s Tail, which is the sign you’re leaving behind, and the Dragon’s Head, the sign you’re heading towards.

Dismantling the Machine of Self Negation to Uncover the Sweetness of Life with Mark Borax

6 week course March 2nd - 23 & April 6 -13  on Saturdays: 3:30 - 5 pm Eastern

Beneath the strange changes and perplexing challenges of our time lies the realm of the soul, or core nature, of human beings. In modern times we've gotten stranded in lives led far from the soul. Commercial civilization has done everything in its power to turn each of us against ourselves, which makes excellent consumers but incomplete human beings.

The extent to which humanity has turned against itself is so prevalent that it's become invisible.
When you awaken to the ways you've gotten inadvertently turned against yourself, and untwist that twist, life's basic sweetness arises from within you and all around you.

Soul Level Astrologer Mark Borax will dismantle the machinery of self-negation, using a method he calls StarJazz, which combines his original songs with lecture and dialogue.

Mystic Rapture & French Fries with Marcella, Mark and Special Guests

First Fridays. Begins Nov 3 to Oct 4, 2024 at 2:30 pm Eastern (no circle in July & August)

This year-long circle meets on the first Friday of every month. Soul Level Astrologer Marcella Eversole will open a space for Star Crossed Lovers (and the lover in all of us) to Talk Truth.  In addition to themes that punctuate all Star Crossed Loves -- Transgression, Destiny, Secrecy, Intensity, Sacrifice and Tragedy -- we'll delve into some of the astrological aspects that can help untangle ongoing conflict and support modern 21st century loverships.

Come to this exciting "Love on the Rocks" space ready to be with vulnerability, divinity, naughty language and conventional and unconventional ways of holding love unbound.


Venus in Leo: Radiate Your Creative Fire Monthly Video with Mireya Alejo and Lily Swan

From the Heart: Testimonials


Since the world doesn't function on 'we're all one', it's not easy to create a harmonious bridge between our mundane experience and spirituality. But what I've experienced with Marcella and Mark's teaching is something else. There's a true sense of belonging in the spaces they hold. There's a deep respect and recognition for each and every human being, and their journey. It's a path in which superiority seizes to exist, where we are encouraged to incarnate all that we are. I've never felt foreign in this space. I experience what it feels like to be part of the human tribe, where we're all one.
