discover an alchemy of ancient and modern astrological teachings for your cosmic clarity

with ra ma

artist, astrologer, cosmic priestess, and the creator of the podcast Stars, Stones, and Stories

welcome aspiring astrologer,

Like the Ancients who have come before, you have an instinctual urge to know the positions and relationships of the Sun, Moon, stars, and planets and how this relates to your daily life on Earth. 

I imagine that you wish to make sense of your place in the cosmos.

Perhaps you wish to be able to help others claim their own unique magic. Perhaps you know that through the art and science of astrology you can create horoscopes, make talismans and forecast future events.

To be able to do this you must know the building blocks of astrology and the basics of how to decipher a chart.

I know sometimes the language of astrology feels out of reach and totally overwhelming. There are seemingly infinite layers of technique with astrology and it may feel like the concepts will never gel into cohesion.

Due to its rising popularity, it’s easy to find a saturation of information floating all over the internet in regards to this starry craft. The many voices create endless jargon, and at times contradiction and a myriad of opinions, that it can feel like wading through a marsh and you find yourself lost.

astrology is timeless and vast. you are made of stardust and a compound of elemental wisdom. 

An intelligent foundation is essential to learning astrology so that it takes form in your consciousness. Breaking down this rich language requires an intentional container, clarity, and a solid practice to learn the complexities with elegance. I know that it is possible to experience astrology as simple and straightforward, where the merging of traditional and modern techniques crystallize.

the ancient language of astrology lives within you and it is time to consciously awaken this eternal wisdom.

this is why i created skywalkers.

within your essence you already are an astrologer. 

This Foundations in Astrology course will help you decipher the art and science in a clear and grounded container so that you may flourish with your practice. You will be confident that you are building the blocks step by step that will nurture a lifelong learning path if you so desire.

In addition, these basics will help you master their connection to self knowledge and enrich your confidence, your health, your connection to money, your relationships, community and to your literal and physical place on Earth.

astrology is a gateway to know your soul purpose in this universe.

By the end of this course you will:

  • Realize your place within the history of Astrology
  • Know the fundamentals of astrology
  • Have experienced the four elements and three modalities
  • Have fully embodied the energy and archetypes of the planets, signs, and houses
  • Be able to offer a basic natal chart interpretation with grace
  • Decipher the dominant energies in your natal chart and the charts of others
  • Be ready to expand out into the majestic realm of astrology with confidence

master the basics so that you may become fluent in the language of the aquarian age.


my relationship with astrology began in 1994 as parker’s astrology magnetically drew me back into this portal of starry remembrance.

I arrived home from the bookstore in Goldsboro, North Carolina with this thick book that I immersed myself within for endless hours during my teenage years. To be honest, the technical sections felt incredibly intimidating and out of my league. Regardless, I fell in love with the language of astrology.

When I discovered I was pregnant with my daughter during my Saturn Return, astrology knocked at my door with an invitation to dive deeper. I began an intensive Soul Mastery Program with my first astrology mentor DK Brainard. This journey cracked me wide open to be able to interpret my chart in ways I had never imagined.

By the year 2014 as I was rebirthing my work in the world after three years of dedicated mothering, I began to weave astrology into all aspects of my offerings ranging from yoga classes, my apothecary, women’s circles and other events. While attending a workshop in 2016, I found myself surrounded by a group of women, and there I was in the midst of giving each of them chart interpretations. 

The realization hit me like a bolt of Uranian lighting (my South Node is in Aquarius), I am an astrologer! 

It was a profound moment of claiming my medicine from deep within my bones. I began offering professional readings in 2017 and since then have offered over a thousand 1:1 readings with people all over the world. Each offering through EarthSeed Temple Arts whether it is a simple yoga class or multifaceted pilgrimage is curated with from a deep listening and knowing of the celestial realm. 

In my thirst for more knowledge I received a MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology from the Sophia Centre at the University of Wales with Merit in 2022. Truth be told, I will always consider myself a student astrologer; I am always learning new techniques to enrich my practice.

My journey with astrology is as vast as the stars and has lead me to pilgrim in sacred lands like Egypt and Avalon where I have come to embody the connection between the heavens, sacred sites like the Great Pyramid and Stonehenge, our Earth’s iron rich core, and our own human bodies. 

When life becomes totally wild, I lean upon starlore to gain insight and inspiration.

The birth of this foundational course has been years in the making. I know we are going to learn so much together as my strong Virgo planets in the 12th house are here to deliver, and my 9th house chart rulership is a vast resource of divinatory comprehension.

Let's traverse the cosmos together in Skywalkers.
