About the facilitators
Candace Kita is an astrologer and cultural worker committed to elevating the stories of people of color. She has been reading since 2017 and is a graduate of the Portland School of Astrology, whose teachings examine astrology through the lenses of race, class, body, age, gender, sexuality, and ability and seek to infuse astrology with liberation and empathy. She has presented on astrology and wellness at the U.S. Department of Arts & Culture’s CULTURE/SHIFT convening and is the author of the zine Astrology and Wellness for Radicals, which is currently sold by Kindred Post, The Future, and Seagrape Soap. Candace believes first and foremost in astrology as an interpretative storytelling and relationship-building technique, allowing us to redefine and retell our personal stories and explore our own innate power. Her astrological approach weaves within it her eclectic background in visual art, writing, community organizing, and nonprofit arts administration. Alongside her astrological practice, Candace serves as Cultural Strategy Director at the Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon (APANO). She is a proud alumna of Scripps College, and in her spare time, she dabbles in ecstatic dance and reads voraciously.
