Russell Ohlhausen

Russell Ohlhausen

The mathematical language spoken by the Universe is the basic structure, "the cosmological simplex”, which defines all aspects and expressions of the Zodiac. The energetic “fundamental force” of nature that creates particles, sunflowers, people, planets, solar systems and galaxies is singular in pattern, yet infinite in its variety. It’s functions are scalable and self-organizing, providing an energetic framework that can be found in all structure and form. Once you understand how to ‘see’ our reality through numbers, you can peer into hidden mysteries – including Astrology. Russ von Ohlhausen will discuss his original research on how the “presence of the fundamental force" can be understood through the language of numbers, primarily in the Fibonacci Sequence, one of the basic patterns found in the cosmos. Finally he’ll show how this essential blueprint is the foundational pattern for the creation of our astrological language.

Gemini Brett

Gemini Brett

As a certifiable StarryTeller, Gemini Brett devotes his now as a living vow to the Marriage of Heaven and Earth. He began his formal study with the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School, but has since synthesized his own terrestrially-tuned celestial stew by integrating ingredients of many astro kung fus (from Hellenistic to Evolutionary). Brett's principle intention is to retrieve the Star Songs we heard in times before the written word. He transmits the mysteries he finds in sacred sites and living sky through a system of embodied exercise he calls Earthstrology and through the sacred sciences of the Quadrivium: Geometry, Musical Harmony, Astronomy, and Number in Nature. Gemini Brett is best known throughout cosmic circles as an astronomy-for-astrology expert and mystic mythologist, but the truth you'll find when you get to know this fiery Scorpio is that his techniques are designed to water the heart through re-membering Signs of the Messenger's Mind.
