Art + Journaling + Astrology
A guided program to learn about your own astrological birth chart, while exploring its holistic messages and nuances through reflective journaling and creative practice.
All who register before December 29, 2017, will be automatically entered in a giveaway drawing to WIN one of two prizes: a personal or transit chart reading, OR two intuitive birth chart mandalas from Hali (3 winners will be announced in January 2018)
In The Stars will invite you to explore your natal chart beyond character trait definitions, moving into an inner world of layers and beauty, ripe for transformative self-awareness. You will learn how to interpret key focal points from multiple angles, take what is resonant and pertinent for your life, and bring it into your art+journaling creative practice for further discovery, insight and relativity.
Over the course of the program, you will begin to see connections that take time to reveal, and that no outside interpreter could possibly make for you – because the power of astrology is as a personal, living relationship with the miracle of creation, your psyche and unique story, and our inherent interconnection as a collective human family.
Guided by monthly themes, you will mindfully, intuitively and visually explore the
archetypal significance of key celestial bodies and where they fall in
your personal birth chart, learning about the intricacies of
relationships between them.
In The Stars includes:
• Lessons on the astrological symbols: planets, zodiac signs & houses
• Rich journaling prompts for personal reflection, inviting you to dive deep
• Creative practice invitations and demos to further explore your curiosities and awareness about your chart placements
Your creative journal - and 'Book of Stars' - will be custom to you, your
chart placements and your intuitive + creative process – meaningful in a way that only you
could gift yourself by coming along for this creative journey.
I am confident you will feel a little more centered and seen, with clarity of how to nurture and support what you may have always thought of as personal weaknesses or flaws – while celebrating and shining forth your inherent strengths and callings, with more confidence and love.
It is my deepest intent that this journey of discovery be both fun and meaningful, and that what you learn and discover feels inspiring, encouraging and practically relative for your life and relationships.

"Not sure if I have already expressed my absolute love of how this course material is offered as a beautiful mixture of still images, text, videos and audio recordings. Love It! I especially love the audio recordings (and videos once watched become "audios" too) since I love both the freedom to do other things in my studio and my own learning style is best suited with this type of oral tradition. Many thanks Hali Karla for creating a beautiful "container" of yummy morsels for us to enjoy.

You do not need to consider yourself an artist to enjoy this program or a creative practice!
Please understand that this is not necessarily a technique oriented class. It is about mixed-media experimentation, working with what you have, and activating your unique stylistic relationship to your creative energy, curiosity and intuitive process. I will share with you about my approach and process, including tips that may enhance your skills, technique and knowledge – but only to inspire and enhance the development of your practice. Everyone’s journal will look beautifully different. Emphasis is on liberating *your* creative process and intuition through practice, not necessarily on technique.
Supplies will not be excessive – an art practice can easily be an affordable, and priceless, gift to yourself. All of the invitations can be altered and adjusted to work with very basic supplies and substitutions – much of which you likely already have on hand.
You are never required to share work from your process, but will be supported if/when you do. I always encourage mindfulness around sharing, particularly when working with such personal expression. It is most important that your creative explorations be an uninhibited, safe practice for you to explore, release, honor, heal and express your dynamic feelings, stories, challenges, questions, visions and joys.
The foundation of astrology has room for both intuitively creative and orderly approaches, as well as paradoxes with multitudes of context and possibility – this is precisely why I am hooked!
I have focused on western approaches to astrological interpretation in my studies and practice – applying my holistic lens and love of creative process, psychology, evolutionary consciousness and healing. This weaving is how I will share the astrological language with you.
While I continue to deepen + expand my own studies and practice, I can’t wait to share basic application and creative exploration with you – so that you can discover and de-mystify some of the beauty of your unique birth chart as a companion to your life and experiences.
For me, the true gift of our birth chart is about ways we relate to ourselves, our world and one another.
The knowledge I will share with you, and how you can apply it to your own chart and life, is totally accessible regardless of your previous experience with astrology.
I am passionate about creative practice and astrology equally, and so looking forward to exploring possibilities, discoveries and questions with you along the way!
You may find that you lean more toward the creative practice aspect of the program, or the astrological exploration – but either way, and regardless of experience, I am certain you will learn something new and find inspiration for your creative process and personal development.
"I am loving the class and the creativity piece is one of the reasons I take one course each year to frame my creativity and help me stay with it. Thank you so much for the reading and the beautiful way you guide your classes."

M. RUTH McCANTS, PhD
I am drawn to inner guidance and intuitive arts through astrology, numerology and the various other oracle and tarot systems. My work as an astrologer is about sharing, encouraging and empowering others to learn and gain understanding of this ancient wisdom that offers powerful guidance for our contemporary lives. My own life direction and expression is enhanced by using my astrological "star map" to guide my insights as a musician. I have a fascination with how energy states can be changed through vibration and frequency, while using sound and music for healing, well-being, creativity and for bringing joy into our lives.
