a 6 month astrology immersion with Rakai’el

Remember the language of the stars…

The moment you took your first breath, you sealed the cosmic imprint of the stars into your cells.

In this first Ceremony of Air, you forged sacred contracts with specific planets and asteroids to act as teachers and guides along your path.  They vowed to assist you in your soul’s development through what would appear as challenges and opportunities.

Have you forgotten?

Do you dare to unlock the hidden secrets within?

How can you remember your Soul’s Purpose and the Great Mission you came here to complete as a member of the Family of Light?

The answers are already inside you.

Literally, your star map, or Astrological Birth chart, has been with you since the moment of birth. Remember: the best place to hide something is in plain sight.  This shimmering starlight map can tell you things about yourself you’ve only hoped were possible.

I believe EVERYONE should be able to read their Birth Chart on a daily basis. This is something that should be taught in schools.  Right up there with knowing how to brush your teeth, knowing how to read your astrology chart is an act of personal hygiene and self-care.

When you know how to read your chart you can:

★ Invoke specific planetary allies and call on them for support and guidance when you are going through a challenging time.

★ Have a much clearer understanding of what it is you came here to do, and how to best go about accomplishing that, utilizing your natural gifts and talents that are laid out in the stars.

★ Understand what kind of upcoming relationship/health/financial challenges you might face, and how to alchemize them so that you can navigate them gracefully and then share what you’ve learned with others.

★ Know in advance when challenges could arise, or when opportunities will present themselves so you can dance with the energies – as opposed to being trampled by them or missing them altogether.

And so much more!

All of this is available to you now. Join us for this 6-month Astrological immersion where you will learn how to unlock the hidden secrets within.

Gifting yourself with this wisdom is literally the best investment you could ever make.

Astrology doesn’t have to be complicated.

It’s simply a language that we have forgotten how to speak.


We are all astrologers.

The sounds and symbols of the stars are encoded within our bones, resonating as a luminous language of light. The planetary archetypes pluck the cords of consciousness, woven through the myths and stories that are the undercurrent of our waking life.

It’s just that we’ve forgotten.  The language has remained unspoken, whispered only by those who’ve studied with masters, down a long lineage of astrologers, but it is rising within us once more, ready to be remembered.  

Astrological information is everywhere these days.

Not a full moon goes by without my Instagram feed filling with planetary reports – and while its wonderful to look to experts to interpret the “other language” of astrology – it doesn’t have to be this way.

I believe we are all able to interpret the different planetary influences in our lives, and that your relationship with the language of light and of the stars does not have to be compartmentalized only for the full and new moons.

Everyday the planets move and shift in the heavens above us AND resonate within the very cells of your body.

What people are saying

AE – Brooke Rosenblum

There are so many amazing topics in this course; from asteroid goddesses, daily Astro weather, and fine-tuning the basics of planets, houses, and signs – and I so enjoyed our gatherings with our LIVE group in the Q&A sessions! After taking this course, I now utilize astrology to converse about the daily, weekly, and monthly happenings as it relates to Western astrology in my online work.  I check my own chart fairly consistently to understand the energy of what’s to come on a month-to-month basis. I truly feel so much more confident in reading charts and understanding the energetic subtleties of daily transits. I know that I can now serve my community in greater ways, as I have a clearer understanding of this important subject!

AE – Noelani Love

After taking the Astro Empowerment Course I feel more aligned with my purpose and have some more basic skills to understand how to read charts. I feel that I can understand how different signs interconnect and weave in relationships. Also, I loved that we could ask ANYTHING in the Q&A calls!

AE – Birgit Humphreys

The material is superb; especially the basics of signs, planets, and houses. The transits class was my favorite. They were an eye opener on life lessons, gave me a push to have more integrity and discipline within myself, and I really love how structured it was. Since taking the course I’ve taken a deeper dive into myself, I’m studying and reading daily & I’ve even started giving chart readings to others – which I have found to be the best way to learn and see how what I perceive intuitively shows up for the person in reality. I am more compassionate with myself & I understand what gifts and talents I brought into this life. This all helps me to be more confident in myself and apply what helps me to stay happy and healthy!

AE – Alise Romeiko

I saw Rakai’el’s Astro Empowerment offering I FELT it in my guts that a very deep part of me wanted to take this specific course.  I decided to go with it; I didn’t know at that time WHY I was saying YES, I took a leap of faith based on intuition and serendipity, and have not looked back. The most important take-away for me has been and continues to be the EMPOWERMENT that has revealed itself in multiple layers with the help of this course. I’m deeply aware of the fact that I am the most important person in my life & I’m the one who decides things about myself. I am really at home with how Rakai’el teaches & I loved hearing her talk about what she’s witnessed. I am grateful for the chance to witness such a wonderful customer experience.

AE – Jessica Valor

This was a powerful, fun, sacred and intensive journey through the stars and I highly recommend this program for anyone who wants to know how to read their birth chart and/or others and swim in the stars! I thought it would take me longer to understand astrology and offer readings to my clients but it just all clicked and I am blown away at how much I have learned in 6 months!

Jessica Valor, Spiritual Mentor & Master Healer
AE – Goldie Thompson

The course helped me use the natal chart to determine areas in which those energies are best integrated and embodied. Understanding the implications of our moon sign has been most useful thus far. I check the weekly Astro weather to ensure I’m working WITH the planetary energies. Studying the transits to identify patterns & gain greater insight into their effect on houses and planet activations. I’ve pulled charts for my children and husband to ensure their moon-sign needs are being met. This was a great intro course! I appreciated your approach to working with/dancing with the planetary energies.

AE – Joanne Gillard

I enjoyed learning about the myths, and I could really see how having an understanding (and building a relationship) with each, particularly understanding it’s placement in my chart, could really enhance my life. Since taking the course, I feel like I can quite confidently speak about certain pieces and parts of an Astrology Chart. I also now find it easier and more exciting to read other people’s interpretations. My biggest take away from Astro Empowerment is knowing that I’m learning a new language, it’s ok to start slowly, I don’t need to know it all now, and I can allow it to wash over me. 

Jo Gillard, Love Coach
AE –  Mallory MacTaggart

I went from not understanding how to read my natal chart to practically having it memorized now. In the past, there was static and Rakai’el’s course reminded me how to tune into my heart and listen to these frequencies loud and clear. The inner planets have taught me how to embody inner radiance, compassion, connection, creativity & action. The outer planets continue to teach me how to lean into alignment with expansion, structure, authenticity, imagination & transformation. This was one of the best investments I’ve made in self-discovery. It surpasses any personality assessment/test and awakened an ancient melody between myself and the planets that is truly heard from within. Thank you!

Mallory MacTaggart
AE – Ann Taylor

I’ve had huge insights into my own chart with the Astro Empowerment Course – being able to confidently read my own chart and others is such a game changer! What looked like a confusing web to me 6 months ago is now a crystalline compass and my confidence in Astro knowledge has grown so much.I’ve had huge insights into my own chart – being able to confidently read my own chart and others is such a game changer!

AE – Geri Wurth

The quality of information was great, and I appreciated the suggested resources for further learning! I like the way Rakai’el explained the material clearly and used examples, and how she took time with each person’s question, even if they were not able to be present live at the Q&A.  It was so inspiring to see the way Rakai’el dressed up and did a ‘look’ for each of the videos! I felt her expression really deepened the cosmic material! Learning about my natal chart and planetary influences felt spot on in understanding my personality and purpose. My main insight I came away with was feeling how special each individual is: We come into this world at the precise cosmic and planetary moment that can help us fulfill our soul destiny!

Geri Wurth
AE – Erin

Many deep transformative experiences led me on an intense regeneration for my soul’s evolution during the course. Without the guidance and support from my birth chart and Rakai’el’s wisdom, I would have been lost in the trenches. So grateful for the knowledge and grace she has shared. Divine timing at its finest. Beyond grateful for all the wisdom and love Rakai’el shared with the entire course! Thank you for guiding me on an epic journey that will continue to support the discovery of my soul’s divine design. Much love! 

AE – Julie Ong

I decided to sign up for Astro Empowerment to learn more about myself and invest in my spiritual growth. I come from a Chinese culture where children are seen but not heard. Shame was a big part of the system and rules were important to follow. I learned that I didn’t have a voice. I couldn’t express myself, who I REALLY was. This course gave me the foundation to step out into the world & express my authentic self. I discovered who I am. I now see myself as being an inspirational part of this world, where my authority comes from inside of me rather than from society’s rules. The biggest take-away from this experience was that I have a voice and I have the right to be who I am. I learned that I matter and I have a place in this world.

Julie S. Ong, Author & Spiritual Life Coach

Hi there!

If you don’t know me, I’m Rakai’el and I’ve been obsessed with the stars for as long as I can remember.

Back when I was 17 years old and living in Kentucky, I wandered into my parent’s closet and found a book on Astrology.  I promptly got to work, using the charts in the back of the book and started drawing up charts for myself and my friends.  Looking back, I don’t even know how I knew how to do that!!

Years went by and I put down Astrology to study other things, but in 2013 I was in a bookstore and knew there was a book that would change my life there on the shelf.  When I finally found the book that was clearly meant for me, I was astonished to find that it was a book on Astrology.  I was like, “Really??  This again??” But the signs were unmistakable.

Since then, I’ve been studying with some incredibly brilliant teachers, working with clients, learning the Cosmic influences and FEELING how they show up in our modern lives as archetypal energies, and I still get an astrology reading from my teacher every 3-6 months.  Through this I have learned how to resource them as collaborators and allies, and this is what I want for you.

In this course, I’m sharing everything I know about living in dynamic, devotional communion with the Cosmos.

Most Astrologers or Astrological information you find on the Internet will tell you what the current Cosmic energies are, but they won’t tell you HOW to locate these planetary influences in your own chart.

In my life, Astrology is SUCH a guiding light – it influences my every day.  

I want YOU to be empowered and EDUCATED, so that you can READ & interpret your own chart and the current Astrological weather.

I want you to KNOW how to work with the planetary energies, to collaborate with them as friends and allies.

It’s the difference between knowing a Saturn transit is coming up and getting to work ahead of time, OR being unaware and getting slammed in the face by the energies.

It’s time to get informed.  Stop looking to others to tell you what is written in the stars.  It’s time to empower yourself. 

In my sphere of existence, I tune in with astrological information at least 5 times per day, and that’s not because I’m an astrologer.

It’s because I have established a living relationship with the archetypal and planetary energies.

I feel myself lightning fast in my thinking, speaking faster, skimming information at high speeds, and I know there’s an activation with Mercury somewhere in my chart, so I honor this energy by taking time to do research or call a friend for a good session of intellectual banter.

Other days I’ll notice that I’m feeling kinda spendy and craving luxurious experiences, a quick tune in with my chart shows a Venus transit taking place. Now that I’m aware of the influence I have a choice: do I actually want to make that big purchase, or would some fresh flowers and getting all dressed up feed my Venus in a more sustainable way?

When we’re unaware of the planetary influences they can become unconscious motivations in our lives – and the results can sometimes leave more of a mess than we’d care to clean up.

Lashing out at a loved one can end up being a learning experience, but perhaps the Pluto transit that triggered the argument could have been better served by a powerful Sound Healing Gong Bath/Holotropic Breathwork/or a visit to a depth psychologist.  There are many ways to address and honor the archetypal energies. 

All of these are simply examples of what it can look like to live in harmony with the rest of our Solar System.  

I don’t call myself an Astrologer, because I feel like this knowledge is natural and innate for all of us, and it’s time we REMEMBERED the language of the stars.  

I want you to feel EMPOWERED by the Astrological energies…. 

You deserve to know.

What people are saying

AE – Melissa Kaye

My biggest takeaway from taking this course is that I now use astrology daily, I am always looking at my chart for guidance and keys. I have gained more appreciation and knowledge of the unique complexities of myself and my experiences, as well as for others.  Astrology isn’t something to just learn; it is a remembering of a language we all know & have access to but have forgotten. It is a map to help guide us home to our true selves and to live that. I will be a student of astrology always, as it is so layered and deep I will never know it all. This course helps create a good foundation to build upon, and a strong grasp of the language. I feel confident enough to and explore more deeply other realms of astrology.

Melissa Kaye
AE – Stefania

The biggest takeaway of the course was understanding people and situations better! Recognising the energy of the signs and planets in people and events, living it and letting it go without judgement. Also, understanding my birth chart and finding out that it all makes sense in the most amazing way gave me a lot more confidence in my daily activities. I also look at the chart and try to recognize transit energy in my daily life now, and try to align big decisions with positive transits (or avoid tricky ones!). Still working on all this but overall I feel more confident and at peace with the world and whatever happens in my daily life. I’m so glad that I took the course, it impacted my life in such a positive way and made me happy!

AE – Marsha Wald

The biggest insights for me are the ability to read my own chart & the deeper understanding I gained about the Celestial influences. It has given me a tool to understand my experiences & also to help my clients to get a better understanding of their experiences. I was struggling with the direction of my Business & discovering this course gave me the answers I needed to move forward in confidence. I love that we all got a chance to get questions about our charts answered & that we had a safe space to be vulnerable. Thank you!

Marsha Wald, Transformational Life Coach
AE – Katherine Gramann

I felt really empowered and safe just in the act of enrolling! My biggest insights are that the subtly of astrology is working at all times – whether we are conscious of it or not. So while we can ignore it, we can also lean in and participate with full awareness. The knowledge has enabled me to better support myself and those around me during wild times. I will make an Astro check-in part of my morning routine and help me to really deepen my intentional time management! I love and honor you, Rakai’el!

Katherine, Soul Mentor, Water Protector & Sunset-Chaser
AE – Erin McDermott

The biggest insight from the course was seeing what kinds of energy are on the horizon and to have a better understanding on why I feel certain ways at certain times. I also like to utilize the different energies with the planets and amplify what I’m calling into my life! I really enjoyed the live Q&A’s. It was helpful to get a deeper dive by looking at our specific charts to answer questions about the most recent information we’d learned. Rakai’el creates so much content with so much value in everything she does! I’m grateful for her love to learn and her wisdom! 

Erin McDermott, Sound Alchemist
AE – Lindsey Bolton

I have been drawn to Astrology since I was a child and have used it as a tool for self-awareness and when the opportunity to take this course came up I felt called to explore this interest deeper. My biggest takeaway from this experience has been to trust in my intuition and listen to the wisdom that is coming through that has been ignited through this process. I envision weaving the wisdom of the cosmos into my everyday life to have a better understanding of the energies and flow from planetary shifts. I love Rakai’el’s enthusiasm and positivity, felt the light and genuine passion for Astrology come through in the calls and the modules.

Lindsey, Community Rockstar
AE – Kylie Hanson

One of the benefits of doing Remembering Lemuria first was access to the planet meditations which I used during the first parts of this course to support initiating connections with the planets.
The connections with the planets and current weather aligned with the natal chart were my favourite topics. I had deep experiences with the energies of the triple eclipse portal through working with another lightworker which I was able to align with what I was opening up in Astro Empowerment and see very simply and clearly the connection with what specific planets are guiding me towards and healing within me as I allow it.

Kylie, Teacher
AE – Liana Russo

I love the stars, I’ve been learning about them in one way or another for years. I was so excited to take an astrology course with Rakai’el, I love that her teaching style is one of embodiment. The content is amazing, and I loved the LIVE group Q&A sessions. I wasn’t able to make it all the way through the course the first time as so much was going on for me at that time. I’m so grateful that I have forever access to the material, and that I’m able to ‘walk again’ with the current class! After watching the first few modules, I’m now able to connect with all of the planets and asteroids in new ways that feel really unique to me. It’s like I made friends with all of these different astral bodies – I love them and we’re family now!

Liana Russo, Celestial Shaman

Here’s the deal… 

This is important!  In my experience, it is so important to have the time and space to really walk with and learn from the planetary archetypes.  They have so much to teach us, and it is really through the contemplative, lived experience of them that it really begins to sink in.  That’s why I made this course 6 months long.  

REAL TALK: The amount of content offered in this course is INSANE!  This is going to be something you will return to year after year as you continue to learn and grow with the planets. 

Being able to navigate and collaborate with the astrological energies is SO EMPOWERING!  This doesn’t mean you have to start doing readings or posting about the cosmic energies every moon phase.  For me, it’s much more subtle.  I tune into the astro frequencies every morning and use them to plan my day, write my IG posts, and make big decisions.

AND… (VERY IMPORTANT): I don’t let them paralyze me. 

For example, Neptune energy can be very challenging to work with.  There can be confusion, deception, illusions… but I don’t let that stop me from taking inspired actions that come from my heart. I just make sure that I’m coming from a place that’s Divinely guided, that feels good, and that my work has plenty of art, music, and flow woven into it – kind of like this course! (I also especially love the images of nebulas).

The point is to COLLABORATE with the planetary energies – not to let them rule your life.

YOU have free choice in all of this.  The different astrological frequencies that arise each day simply offer you opportunities for more INTENTION and artistry in your life. 

This is why I am so crazy-passionate in helping you to open these star lines of communication for yourself once again. 

So my loves…

Are you Ready???

A:  Remember there are no “bad or wrong” decisions.  You can’t mess it up 😉  Sometimes when we choose to make an investment in ourselves – especially if it might bring more awareness into our lives, illuminating ways in which we’ve been holding ourselves back under the guise of playing safe – we can start to doubt our decisions and want to run away.  (Sound familiar?).  I totally know bc I’ve been there so many times.  This is why I wrote the refund policy directly on the sales page under the sign-up button.  Empowerment can be extremely threatening to the parts of ourselves that want to stay small.   The vision I hold for you is one where you trust yourself completely, knowing that whatever comes up, you are strong enough, compassionate enough, and smart enough to handle it – especially the more you begin to work with the planetary energies as loving guides and allies.  Place your hand upon your heart and feel how safe and held you are by your higher self.  You’ve got this!!  AND here is the official Refund Policy from above:  I want you to be intentional in everything you do.  Place your hand on your heart and take a deep breath before you complete your payment.  Dive in right away and watch Module 1, and if you don’t feel like this is for you, you have 24 hours from the exact date and time of your purchase to request a refund.  I honor this commitment you are making to yourself and take your intention to participate very seriously.   If you are not certain if this course is for you, please email us HERE with any questions you may have.  

Q:  I don’t understand Astrology AT ALL, can I still take the course?

A:  100% YES! This course will be the best thing that ever happened to you!  I am so excited for you to learn how to collaborate with the cosmic energies!!

Q: Do I need to purchase any software for Astro Empowerment?

A: No, you’re not required to purchase any software for the course. You can use the free website to get your charts and look at the transits.

If you want to, I do recommend getting an app for your phone so it’s much easier to look at charts anytime you want. For iPhone I recommend iPhemeris, which is currently $18.99 USD.  For Android, I recommend AstroGold, which is currently $39.99 USD. They both offer desktop versions as well, but I find that the mobile apps are more than enough.

Q:  I understand the basics of Astrology, and now I’m looking for a better way to connect with the energies so I can understand things more intuitively –  instead of feeling like I have to look everything up all the time.  Would this course be for me?

A:  YES!!! This is 100% my goal, and intention in this course – not only share foundational information around astrology, but to also help people have an intuitive, lived, felt experience and embodied relationship with the planetary frequencies where they are able to recognize the planetary archetypes in themselves, in other people, and in their environment.  This is the reason I’ve made Astro Empowerment a six-month course;  So that people can immerse themselves in the archetypical and symbolic language of the stars that are speaking to and dancing with us every single day.  Through this course, I want to get everyone to a place where they can sense and feel the planetary frequencies – and then confirm what they have been feeling and experiencing by looking at their chart.

Q:  Is the course focused on past life astrology or a general astrology and each person finds their own path?

A:  Excellent question! The Astro Empowerment course is focused on general Astrology.  Of course, we will talk about past life clues in the chart, because I love talking about past lives! We will also talk about how to find out your personal connection to the specific star families, and where they are supporting you in this life, along with so many other esoteric aspects of astrology because that is just who I am 😉 . My main intention and end goal with the course is to empower you with the wisdom of the stars so that →→ you can remember how to read and interpret your own chart, and the charts of others.

★  I want you to be informed, so that you don’t just drink down all of the information you hear on the Internet, without knowing how to filter it, taking only what is relevant to you based on how it is influencing you personally (which you will know, because you will know how to read your own chart!)

Q:  Will this course be offered again?

A: Astro Empowerment is offered twice a year, usually enrollment is open in June and December. The price of the course is subject to change.  We all learn and evolve along the way.

Q:  What astrology software do you personally use?

A:  I love the stars and tech! I use iPhemeris on my phone and Astro Gold on my laptop.

Q:  What house system do you personally use & teach in the course?

A:  I use the Placidus house system.  Throughout the astrological community, Placidus is the most widely used.  Using this style will provide you with a greater understanding of the astrology that you are seeing out in the world, and will make sense of things the quickest.

Q: I don’t know the exact time of my birth and I have no way of finding out. Will this affect my ability to do this course?

A: If you don’t know your exact time of birth, that will not affect your ability to do this course. In the first module, Rakai’el covers the Rising Sign/Ascendant and the mechanics of how it works, so that you will be able to recognise it when it manifests. Then once she goes through the module about all of the different signs, you will be able to recognise and feel their different archetypal energies in your life. When we put these two things together (the mechanics of the Rising Sign and how it presents + the characteristics and attributes of the different sign themselves), combined with your own self observation of your patterns and habits, it is possible for you to recognise and identify which sign is mot likely your Rising Sign. Although you might not be able to get the exact minute of your birth, at least you can get really close to identifying your Rising Sign and that will then designate where the rest of the houses fall for your personal chart.

Alternatively, and a much easier method that a lot of astrologers use, is to consider your birth time as midday (12 pm) for your Rising Sign. Rakai’el has also shared more information about it on her Insta TV, click here and here to watch the videos where she explores this theme.

Q:  Who did you study astrology with?

A:  When I was 17 I found an astrology book in the back of my parents’ closet and I taught myself (past life remembered) how to do charts. Since then I have done a year mentorship with Erica Sandstedt who is an incredible Shaman, Sound Healer & also an Astrologer, I worked alongside an Astrologer in my business for two years, and most recently have been mentoring with an Astrology teacher (who is also a mathematician and chemical engineer, which brings an insane level of understanding to the craft) for the last year and a half.

Q:  I would love to offer Astro readings for people at the end of this… will this course allow me to do that, and what could I roughly charge for those readings?

A: Deciding to offer readings is a very personal choice. In my opinion, is best to do this when you feel confident enough, and the astrological information vibrates within you as a living prayer.

In my personal journey, I began studying astrology when I was 17, and that continued on and off for about 3 years. At 33 I picked it up again and have done loads of self-study in addition to mentoring with three very powerful teachers. Five years later I felt confident enough to start doing my own readings.

I don’t know if you will feel confident enough to do your own readings after six months. It is 100% fully possible if you really commit yourself I think. But I cannot say how you’ll feel six months from now. Every person‘s path of integration is different.

It is my intention to share everything I know about reading charts: your personal chart, and the influencing astrological weather so that you can understand the things that happened to you in the past more fully, and be prepared for the planetary initiations that are happening and will present themselves in the future. There is so much material to cover, and six months is actually a relatively short time for something like this, especially as much depth as we’re going into. That’s why I made all of the audios for the videos downloadable so that you can listen and re-listen and re-listen again, learning and integrating more each time.

It’s really offered more as a system of personal discovery that can amplify and enhance your current offerings, and even simply the way you interact with the world on a day-to-day basis, rather than a course that teaches you how to do readings for others. When we understand the influence of planetary energies in our own lives and our collective reality, and cultivate the ability to speak to this through our offerings, this alignment will be felt by all and people resonate more with you and what you are sharing because they sense this alignment.

If, through your own research and integration process and the studying of your own chart and those of friends and family, you feel confident in your abilities to offer readings for others, then that’s amazing and I fully support that!

And as for what to charge, that’s not something that I could advise anybody about. In my opinion, how we value our time through financial exchange should not be influenced by anybody other than yourself. There are many Astrologer’s who charge $60 for readings and feel very good about that, and there are others who charge $1000 for a reading and feel really good about that too. It’s a very personal decision for everyone.
