THE FUNDAMENTALS OF HUMAN DESIGN
FOR THE ASTROLOGICALLY MINDED
sunday, february 27th, 2022 | 11am PST / 2pm EST
human design is creeping into the mainstream and into the astrologer scene as well. just like astrology, it can be quite challenging to understand the system’s complexity and nuance from the surface level material that is easily accessible. unlike astrology, human design has very specific and somewhat controversial origins.
as an astrologer of seven+ years who has been experimenting with human design for nearly three years and formally studying for one, i see a lot of value in what it has to offer and i’d love to introduce any of my astrology-peers (& fellow astrology enthusiasts) who feel called to learn to the fundamental concepts of the system. i will offer an orientation
to human design that will support you in relating to the framework from a personal and organic place. with a natal disseminating sag moon and chart ruler jupiter in gemini, i feel particularly called to and skilled at sharing systems like astrology and human design in a way that helps others to really grasp it at it’s root.
i believe that human design is a very powerful tool for deconditioning, divesting from the currently collapsing systems, and investing in your own nature and your own knowing.
i believe that human design can help us re-orient to relationality and interdependence.
i believe that human design is a framework very aligned with these times, re chiron in aries, uranus in taurus, pluto in capricorn, etc.
human design may not be for you at all, or not for you right now. please trust your own body and your own judgement when reading below and considering whether you’d like to join this workshop.
participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of human design, including:
human design’s origins
how your natal chart informs your design
orientation to the bodygraph
the concept of definition & conditioning/deconditioning
the 9 centers
the 4 energy types, strategies, and themes
the profile lines
this workshop is for you if:
you want to understand your friends’ & peers’ basic human design lingo
you know your type and maybe your strategy, but don’t quite understand what it really means or why/how it applies to you
you are interested in human design but have been turned off by a framing of it that feels hierarchal or capitalistic to you, and would like to hear about it from the lens of an ecto-capitalist practitioner
you want to “trust yourself” but you don’t know which of the many parts of your “self” to trust
you are done living your life in accordance with the metric and values of the dying systems but you don’t know what to replace them with
you want to be attuned to your energy body and begin a process of deconditioning that is all your own self-verifiable
this workshop is not for you if:
you would like proof from an external authority that human design is valid, useful, or morally sound
you require definitive answers in regards human design’s origins or its channel/founder in order to consider it’s potential
human design is an experiment that over time and with embodied practice can change you on a cellular level. please note that this workshop is meant to offer an accessible and clear introduction to the framework for potential integration into one's personal practice, not for immediate incorporation into a profressional practice.
this workshop doesn’t require astrology literacy but is specifically designed with astrologers in mind.
the session does not have a definitive end time. it will likely run 3-4 hours. we will take at least one break. please take care of yourself - if this is too long for you to be in front of the screen, note that you can attend as much of the live session as you’d like, and catch the rest on the recording in the days to follow.
this offering is recorded & all registrants will receive access to the recording along with a download of all class materials.
automated closed captioning will be on during the live session and included in the recording. transcription will be available at some point, but not immediately (likely a couple of months later.)
i use the same sliding scale pricing structure for workshops that i do for one on one sessions. see my economic justice framework & discount codes here.

APPROACHING COMMUNITY & RELATIONALITY THROUGH AN EXPLORATION OF THE ASTROLOGICAL HOUSES
we are in relationship upheaval! the process of examining and rewriting our understanding of self in the context of family, partnership, friendship, community, and society at large is well underway. for the parts of us that are most oriented to relationship, this feels deeply unsettling, but for the sake of the interdependent future that we seek, it is exactly perfectly timed.
learning to discern between the types of relationships that exist and the context surrounding relationality and connection in both the most intimate and personal aspects of our lives as well as the “professional” or more public facing aspects is a crucial and potentially deeply liberating step in working within the parameters of our current consciousness-curriculum. in this workshop, kelsey offers a comprehensive orientation to the houses overall and then facilitates a deep dive into the houses that most obviously are home to relational dynamics and experiences.

THE ASTROLOGY OF WHY WE FEEL "STUCK" & HOW TO EXIST, CONSIDERING
if you’re feeling like you’re living between two worlds, like the old world is dead but the new world isn’t quite here yet and you’re not sure how to exist in the overlapping realities, you’re not alone.
how is one person supposed to determine how/where they fit into the larger puzzle when the big picture is so unclear and unpredictable?
you can’t. right now isn’t for pushing forward in regards to our external circumstances, but we do each have a great amount of agency available to us in regard to how we use this in-between time in order prepare our selves and our bodies for what is next.
this workshop is focused primarily on the transit of saturn in aquarius square uranus in taurus which has been a major player in our experience for all of 2021 and will continue to be so throughout 2022... Read More
UNDERSTANDING THE HOUSES IN ASTROLOGY: 360° of Sky
Originally referred to as the 12 Places, the houses in astrology show us territory of our lives in which the planetary and sign energies most directly play out.
It’s typical for the astrology student to feel a sense of confusion about why certain topics belong together in certain houses, or to have difficulty grasping the rooted meaning behind each house. This workshop presents a combination of history, astronomy, and psychology to clarify the house delineations, supporting the participants to arrive to a more grounded and intuitive approach to interpreting the houses.
In addition to strengthening the foundational understanding of the meaning of the houses, this class also focuses on introducing a number of more intermediate and advanced... Read More
EMBRACING LUNAR RHYTHMS:
Working with the Moon
Ditch the gregorian calendar and get with the moon! Or at least refine your blend of the two.
Embracing Lunar Rhythms is an offering designed to support the beginner to intermediate+ level astrologer in better understanding the lunar cycle and how to apply it to their daily, weekly, and moon-thly, life.
The moon in astrology represents our reflected emotional experiences. When we tune into the phases of the moon, we can more deeply tune into our own internal landscape. When we know how to align our lives with the changes of the moon, we can tap into a more harmonious flow. Read More
