Reclaiming Astrology: contemporary mysticism and its relationship to qtipoc+ communities

Astrology has surged in popularity recently, and its got everything to do with the state of global politics. From dating apps letting you filter through users by their star sign, to zodiac themed club nights; it’s clear that people are looking for answers outside of the traditional systems in place that keep failing them.
While it’s not uncommon to see a rise in alternative spiritualities during times of political unrest, astrology maintains a unique relationship to the experiences of qtipoc+ folx, who don’t always resonate with the teachings of more traditional religious institutions. Join us for a panel discussion exploring how communities of colour can reclaim astrology to resist the negative forces clogging up the news cycle.
