The Ancestral Astrology Course

A 4-week online program to explore your family lineage through astrology, Oct 31 - Nov 21.

ENROLL NOW

An invitation to embrace your ancestry

Scorpio season is the time of year when the veil between worlds appears to be the thinnest, and our connection to the past becomes more poignant.

We're entering the Season of the Ancestors.

The Great Consciousness Shifts in recent years has seen a beautiful emergence of ancestral acknowledgment and reverence in the collective. The ancestors are present and are speaking to us and through us now.

Whether intentional or not, we are living their legacy.

When we're haunted by unknown shadows and toxic patterns that seem ancient, there's often an ancestral connection. A story at the root of our origins that needs telling.

The program begins with an opening ceremony on October 31, the celebration of the ancestors through Halloween, Samhain and the Day of the Dead.

Join us during this transformative time as we explore the past so that you can be empowered to heal your past and impact your destiny, with the wisdom of astrology as your guide.

Let's nourish your roots, and illuminate your family stories so that you can create a legacy worth leaving.

What is Ancestral Astrology? 

The Natal Chart contains a wealth of information about who we are, our potentials and challenges, but it also contains clues as to family patterns that are often embedded in our soul journey.

Ancestral Astrology provides perspective on how our natal chart is connected to the greater whole of our ancestral astrological tree, providing deep insights into our role in a larger family dynamic. These insights can reshape our awareness of what is possible in our daily lives, empowering us to evolve and grow the family tree in an entirely different way.


As we compare our own astrological signatures with those of our relatives, patterns emerge that synchronize with the stories, memories and energetic imprints we carry.

When integrated with ancestral healing modalities, these stories can provide an entryway into a profound self-awareness.

for the best outcomes in my life.

Meet Your Instructor

Fern Vuchinich (she/her), Wisestars Astrology

Fern Vuchinich has 30 years of experience as an astrologer, teacher, healer and guide. She's attained a Master's level certification from Steven Forrest's Evolutionary Astrology apprenticeship program. Her path was also shaped by the mentorship of artist, astrologer and all-around wise woman, Asata Gabriel, who taught her over the course of 25 years about astrology, intuition, plant medicine and so much more.

She has been practicing Earth-based pagan traditions since 1990 and holds advanced training and degrees in many modalities of healing including ancestral healing, acupressure, herbalism, energy healing, and massage. 

"My great grandmother Maria Souza was born in Sao Paulo Brazil where they have a celebration very similar to Day of the Dead called Dia de Finados. These ancient ancestral traditions have always been an integral part of my spiritual life, and I spend half of each year in Mexico, often engaging in the annual  Dia de Los Muertos festivals, celebrating and honoring the dead.

As an ancestral practitioner, I’ve greatly benefitted from training with Daniel Foor’s Ancestral Medicine have spent the last several years delving deeper into my own ancestral healing work. I’m coming at this work from the perspective that it serves us all to do ancestral healing work. One of the doorways into healing toxic patterns is by healing your ancestral lineage, and astrology can be a powerful way to access the wounds, and gifts, of your ancestral line. 

I believe in fate and free will. Some experiences in our life are fated, like my congenital hearing loss. But how we respond to our fate is up to us I am fortunate to be able to hear enough to enjoy music, dance and conversations with my hearing friends, but also grateful for living in an age where I have assistance from the Uranian realm of modern technology, so that I can effectively teach and consult with clients.

Which brings me to the free will part of my astrological philosophy: I think that one of our most important human rights is our free will. It allows us to get creative, it's where our power lies, and when combined with the insight of the stars and planets, can help us to create a life that is rich and meaningful." -FV


 

Experiencing Fern's presence and wisdom is such a gift.

Praise for Our Instructors

Praise for Fern Vuchinich

I am a psychotherapist and have been so since the 1980's. I've been referring friends and even clients to Fern for about 2 decades now. She is a true gem... talented in reading a chart and quickly grasping the core issues of her clients and best of all, she always gives tips and recipes of how to work with the issues at hand. And, she's been uncannily right about when love/work/money will flow into people's lives.

 Deborah Cooper, Marriage and Family Therapist

I want to tell you what a joy it has been taking this class from you [Fern]. I’ve started studying Astrology several times, but never really got past the initial information. Looking at transits last week was a breakthrough. You got me farther than I ever expected to be and I’m so grateful.

— Jessica Strange

Fern is such a brilliant and loving astrologer. She is a wealth of knowledge, not just of the stars, but also the magical intersection of the stars, herbalism, and even tarot. Working with her, you feel seen immediately. She has a way of teaching that’s grounded and anchored in the heart. When I first started seriously getting into astrology, I was looking for a teacher who made the complex tangible and down to earth, while still holding onto the mystical and magical side of the art. Fern does exactly this. Her classes and sessions are dynamic, fun, so informative, and truly brings out the wisdom of her students. She’s a total gem and she brings so much to the field. Experiencing her presence and wisdom is such a gift.

Praise for Christina Caudill

It was slightly unnerving to have someone see my personality and soul so effortlessly - but Christina didn't ever act judgemental. I would recommend Christina because I have followed her for years and gravitate to her style that is both caring and fierce, that is deeply knowledgeable yet curious.

— Kirsten Harris


I absolutely loved my soul astrology reading for its depth of perception, extraordinary insight and how it so accurately described exactly what I am currently experiencing, as well as my overall personality, soul character and past. The guidance Christina offered was perfect.

— Helen Cameron


I felt at ease immediately with Christina and could sense the depth of her listening. She said something so empowering to me that I began to change the attitude I had towards myself! She affirmed what has been a lifetime of working on myself to understand.

— Teresa Ramsey


I really appreciated the space Christina created that felt safe for opening up with some of my most sensitive inquiries. The session felt grounded in sincerity and authenticity, and Christina brings genuine warmth and compassion to her sessions. She gives client inquiries the respect and reverence they deserve.
