An antidote to becoming cold, bitter, and brittle.
There will be two videos posted each month outlining the thEach week we will post video content that you can access in the member's area. We intend for the weekly material to be concise and under 25 minutes. However, we are allowing 2-hours for the Sharing Our Stories live event in the fourth week.
Week 1 - The Current Astrological Themes
The first week's video is an update on the current astrological themes that are significant for the members. You might think of this as an intellectual, or left-brain, understanding of the cosmic song, archetypes and influence on us as a collective.
This video will include the necessary guidance to help you identify important transits happening in your birth chart. Further discussion on these transits will occur in the Small Group Sessions, Group SOS Session, and private consults (Royal Star Member's only).
Week 2 - Mythology
We will consider the cosmic song from another perspective, our right-brain! Vanessa will draw upon ancient myths, stories, & personal reflections to help you feel the current cosmic messages and awaken you to aspects previously denied.
“The business of stories is not enchantment. The business of stories is not escape. The business of stories is waking up.”
- Martin Shaw
Week 3 - Small Group Meetings
These monthly meetings are the perfect place to discuss your chart, your experiences & perspectives, reflect on other's experiences, and how you can best navigate forward through these tumultuous times.
Week 4 - "Sharing-Our-Stories Saving-Our-Soulskins" (SOS2)
This is a live event where we share our real-life experiences, our stories, our feelings, and our hearts. As we grow together as a group, we will unlock our voices and learn to communicate our experiences with more confidence and meaning. We will practice listening and experience being heard (many of you for the first time). It is through our personal sharing that we can begin to see ourselves in each other's reflections. Think of Indra's web, when any jewel in the web is touched; all other jewel's are affected. This metaphor speaks to the hidden interconnectedness of everything and everyone in the Universe.
Our forum is the thread in the mala bead that keeps us all connected. It is where Vanessa can keep you updated on the current transits and teach you how to leverage the cosmos for your advantage. The forum is a real-time conversation that is happening between Vanessa and members. You can ask questions, share your experiences, be in connection with others on the path, and be energised by Vanessa's enthusiasm for the heavenly abode.
Our forum is a communications hub that is encrypted to ensure everyone's personal information is kept secure from prying eyes. The forum app is downloadable on any smartphone, tablet device, and computer.

Private consultations with Vanessa enables a more intimate membership that extends to individualised guidance, coaching and chart readings. She can offer you medical advice, based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, and draw upon medical astrology to assist you with your health concerns.
Monthly private consultations with Vanessa are included in the Royal Stars Membership. This membership will enable Vanessa to become more familiar with your circumstances and assist your evolutionary growth during challenging transits.
There are five principles to embrace in the Aquarian Age, which is the time we are transiting into now. This membership breathes life into these sutras and ushers them into an active practice.
Many people are feeling the pressure of these times right now. Whether it's financial constraints, relationship or family difficulties, a health crisis, socio-economic-environmental fears, or an uninspiring and stressful job; there is no doubt, that we are living in a time of immense pressure.
Astrological speaking, 2020 is gearing up to increase this pressure at the personal and societal levels. But with these immense pressures, we are offered a path for substantial spiritual growth. However, we must start doing the internal processing work required to enable this growth.
We officially launch the full membership program on the Aquarius New Moon of 25 January 2020. This membership will encourage you to do the necessary work to relieve the internal pressure associated with these times. Be guided to see the bigger picture and feel the community support as you step forward in the purposeful navigation of your life.
This membership will teach you how to embody your natal chart. We use astrology as a compass to navigate through challenges and life lessons. We keep an eye on the current cosmic transits and explore their influence at the individual level in our real-time forum. We align our spiritual practices to work in harmony with the cosmic rhythms.
This is how you Vibrate the Cosmos.
We are One. We echo this core philosophy through our interactions in this membership. It provides the foundation for the Sharing-Our-Stories Saving-Our-Soulskins (SOS2) event. It offers us a clearer perspective in our real-time forum.
Sometimes our challenges seem too big to resolve, especially if we are facing it alone without higher-guidance. Many of our blocks stem from our subconscious traumas and beliefs, and it is almost impossible to find solutions when standing in the mud.
This membership is here to support you through your blocks by helping you see the concealed light.
As we reconcile our hurts, resolve negative ego imbalances, employ seeing the other person as you, and practice honest sharing; we heal our heart, the organ of compassion.
It is only when we truly heal that we can be compassionate to ourselves and the world around.

Do you offer a refund or can I transfer a 12 month upfront purchases if I can't complete the duration due to unforeseen circumstances?
No, we do not offer refunds and you can't transfer your 12-month membership to another person. Through many years of experience, we've found that those who do not personally pay for a personal development program, very rarely fully participate in the service. We want to ensure that each member has gone through the research and decision making process themselves so they are willing to do the work on themselves.
Our philosophy is grounded in we are all One, and that each person is a reflection of You. Therefore, it is important that each member is invested with a pure intent to participate and heal.
