The Wheel of the Year

Hero Image WOY.jpeg

Join Paetra for an immersive journey with planets and plants, through the Wheel of the Year.

The year-long syllabus follows the path of the Sun through the Zodiac and is tailored to suit the needs of both beginner and intermediate students. As you explore each class, you'll benefit from astrology, ayurveda, mythology, herbalism, and group discussions on current events. Each class includes a monthly downloadable pdf workbook, a curated playlist, and homework of a plant-based-ritual nature to complete independently in the month.


Astrology has been used for over 1000 years to guide and understand our human lives, loves, gifts, and challenges. It can be used on a daily, weekly, monthly basis to track the giant clock in the heavens and how it correlates with our lives here on Earth, in order to live better and more meaningful lives.

Plants give us clothes, food, shelter & medicine, we couldn't do it without them. Plant lore and herbal preparations are an enriching part of this course.



Folk rituals have been practiced by people observing the same cycles of light and dark that we do, for millenia. Although we live in post-modern times, these rituals are as sacred and meaningful as they always have been, which is why they have been handed down through the ages.

No matter your level of knowledge, you'll leave each session enriched with understanding, excited to try something new, and inspired by nature, astrology, and magic in our weird and unpredictable era.

"Paetra's class was not only informative and interesting, but also taught with a depth that has been able to percolate through my life and understand a little bit more what makes us who we are and what we are made of. I'm in awe of her ability to explain in simple English the world of the celestial realms and how connected we are to them more than I ever thought."

I love Paetra's style of teaching because she explains complicated concepts in a manner that is easy to understand. She has a breadth of knowledge that supports the subject matter, and I particularly like how she incorporates esoteric meaning into her lessons. One truly gets a left and right brain experience when taking one of her classes. She has a gift for finding the most compelling images to bring everything to life on the screen during our Zoom meetings, and this enlivens the experience even more!
