Arianrhod of the Silver Wheel, by Jane Brideson
“Hear ye, the Words of the Star Goddess, She in the dusts of whose feet are the hosts of Heaven, whose body encircleth the Universe…..”
In this Two Spiral, Two Year training we will enter the Silver Spiral of the Cosmic Mother. We will sit in Her celestial womb, suspended between worlds as we reclaim the lost fragments of our soul, heal the wounds of the past and embrace our fullest expression of self. We will walk the land as our astrologer/astronomer ancestors did, tracking the pathways of the constellations, connecting with the ancient Star Mother who is older than time itself.
During this course you will learn how to read and actualise your own birth chart, and that of others. Through discussion, meditation and ceremony you will discover how to understand and embody the 12 divine feminine archetypes of the Astrological wheel and apply your understanding in practical ways. You will receive written files, techniques and resources that you will be able to refer to as needed.
Through the gift of Astrology we will come to know our true soul essence. We see the karmic web we have woven through this incarnation and many others. We will remember who we were, who we are and who we can be.
To become a Priestess/Priest of the Stars is to stare into the starry black obsidian void unafraid of transformation. It is to be able to continually die to the old self and to be renewed, just as galaxies collide and birth new life. It is to be one who recognises that life is a constant dance of destruction and creation, endings and beginnings.
Both Spirals One and Two offer an online option: you would need to attend in person for the first weekend, the weekend in September and the Dedication weekend. Dates for Spiral One can be found here, and for Spiral Two here.
Between each in-person circle you would receive a variety of recorded and printed material with which to work, and have an online tutorial with Maria. More information will be provided on request.
Silver Spiral Year One
This 8 circle weekends training will take you on a journey of self-healing and transformation through understanding the celestial blueprint that is the Birth Chart Mandala. We will learn how to access the wisdom of Goddess based astrology to harmonise with the seasons and cycles of the cosmos to create alchemy in our lives. We will walk the Sacred Land of Avalon and journey to other Star Stone Temples of the Ancestors to observe the pathways of the constellations.
During this Training you will learn how to read and embody your own Birth Chart, and that of others, as you learn how to become your own best Oracle. Through discussion, meditation and ceremony you will discover how to understand and embody the 12 divine feminine archetypes of the Astrological wheel and apply your understanding in practical ways. You will receive written files, techniques and resources that you will be able to refer to as needed.
At the end of the First Spiral, you will dedicate as Sister or Brother of the Stars in a special Initiation ceremony.
Silver Spiral Year Two
During the second year of training, we will dive ever deeper into the mysteries of the Birth Chart, as we begin to work with understanding the predictive techniques of transits and progressions, the celestial cycles of transformation that offer us insight into the karmic rites of passages we experience on our soul’s journey.
You will learn to hold ceremonies to honour these powerful personal transitions, and be guided to create sacred rituals to mark the turning of the Astrological Wheel for your own community and clients.
At the end of this year, you will dedicate as a Star Priestess/Priest, one who is devoted to the Cosmic Mother, fully aligned with the movements of the stars and seasons, able to work with the eternal cycles of the Planets and the Constellations as the Ancestors did.
