In celebration of the new moon in Aquarius: A performance and new moon reading by renowned astrologer and longtime artist-participant of the (stillness) collective, Andrea Goodman. Andrea will be joined by Susan Bickford, activating a sculptural gesture of the chart frozen into a three-foot disc of ice, while cellist Robin Lane improvises sounds of the moment.

This event takes place within the (stillness) collective installation in the 534 Congress Gallery and lasts two hours and is free and open to the public. Late attendees are welcome to drop by and can enter through the 538 Congress venue entrance once the event has begun.


Andrea Goodman has been offering astrological insights as an integral part of the process of “stillness” for the last eight years. Priestess, vocalist/composer, sound-healer, mythic astrologer, poet, spiritual teacher and counselor, she has been part of a groundswell of innovative women’s creative and spiritual emergence throughout her life. She was an original member of the Meredith Monk Vocal Ensemble, performing, recording and touring worldwide, 1974-1991, singing without words in the universal, timeless language of sound. Andrea’s unique vocal skill combined with intuitive improvisation developed her original sound-healing practice, Cosmic Harmony, facilitating others to sing intuitively, freely, and with healing intention. She is a co-founder, with Ione and Pauline Oliveros, of the Ministry of Maåt in 1997. She lives and works on Barter’s Island in Maine.
