Book your personal natal astrology chart reading with Ellen Nguyen, the founder and creator of United Other . Ellen has an incredible story behind her hand-crafted, Tibetan style incense that enable people to create rituals for themselves to call in what they need and release what they don’t.

Her natal astrology chart readings are an extension of her continued and deeply valued work to help clients unlock clues that the universe is guiding individuals towards. The chart reading helps you to understand who you are, your tendencies and strengths. Ellen is there to put together what sometimes may seem like a puzzle of information. She clarifies what the planets in your chart and positions mean so you can get a practical and spiritual sense of who you are in this lifetime to enable your life’s work.

I learned about the Chiron, and hence named the gallery and healing space, Chiron House, shortly after my Natal Astrology Workshop with Ellen. There, she unpacked everything from our 12th house in Jupiter to what our ascending sign tendencies are. It’s a dense amount of “information” that can be confusing on several sheets of paper, an app, or in a one day class. So, we decided that a one-on-one, supported chart reading is a more intimate way to truly navigate all this data, with her as your visionary, heart-led guide to receive a clearer picture of who you are.

Seats are limited so sign up in advance.

$44 - 30 minute reading

$88 - one full hour reading

$111 - 90 minutes extensive deep dive


United Other ritual kits will be available at the gallery

Limited Edition Poster "Leah Cutting Thistles"

Limited Edition Poster "Leah Cutting Thistles"

Ilka Hartmann’s photography captures rare moments of people doing incredible actions. Whether its protesting, building or celebrating, and in this case farming, she knows when it’s the right moment to pick up her camera. “When I saw Leah cutting with such power, I put down my baby that I was holding in my arms and started to photograph her immediately. I went through three rolls of film which I could easily make its own book from, but I remember waiting again for precisely this moment when she wielded the scythe, this instrument of death and swung it with all her might all the way back across her shoulder, and this was the one.”

To make this powerful photograph accessible, we have decided to produce a limited edition poster available for pre-orders only. Available to order today, on the occasion of the last week of her exhibition “Community / Humanity” at Chiron-House. Pick ups on Friday, August 23rd the last day to view her show. Shipping optional for a $15 fee (materials to either flatpack or tube plus shipping fee).

Artist Talk with Cara Bonewitz

Artist Talk with Cara Bonewitz

A chance to hear first-hand from local Ojai artist Cara Bonewitz about her process and connection to these mysterious and delightful sculptures, she titles “Seaweavings”.

Cara forages the plants and processes them in her downtown studio, carefully hanging, drying and then weaving them together to bring the outdoors indoors. Beautiful to behold, the works suspended in the air give new life to these otherwise unregarded “weeds” of the ocean.

Three “Seaweavings” and four photography works of seaweed are currently on view at Chiron-House through til the end of August. Come share an intimate evening with this talented Ojai artist to learn more about her and these wonderful art pieces.

Gallery opens at 6pm for viewing. Artist talk commences at 7pm.

Wine and snacks will be served.
