2-hours north of Cabo
La Ventana, Mexico
Mexico is a country of rich culture, delicious cuisine, and welcoming people. Traveling two hours north of Cabo San Lucas, you will escape the tourist-traps to find a wholesome kit-surfing town that prides itself on fresh fish, strong winds, and breathtaking views.
Casa Tara Resort & Spa
A wellness location with a heart, soul, and a story. Marcela, the owner, had a dream to create a feng-shui, eco-centric, and remarkable oasis. And since Intention Beads hosted the first ever retreat over 5 years ago, the relationship and memories built have been nothing short of wonderful.

Mars Direct in gemini
Mars has been in retrograde for months prior to this retreat, during this retreat we will cover the basics of Mars (the planet of force and fight) and dive further into your personal attachment with Mars.
Mars in Gemini reminds you of the practical magic that is your willpower and ability to make tough calls. Your efforts are too important to risk burning out.
Answering questions like:
What is your purpose? What motivates you? How do you recharge for more energy?
Each retreat has its own special talisman- a symbol of the knowledge and wisdom aquired and inspired by the astrological theme. You will unleash your creative talent (yes, it is there- we promise) and take part in every part of the creation process. We do not disclose the type of talisman until after the opening ceremony.
Temazcal & Local Market
This year you will be guided through a Temazcal from a local shaman, also known as a sweat lodge (optional). This is a very sacred ceremony that helps shed the old skin and aids the healing process. As a group, we will also visit the local market with vendors selling textiles, food, jewelry, and souvenirs. A great time to collect some local gifts to bring home!
Casa Tara Resort & Spa- La Ventana, Mexico
Welcome to Casa Tara where you shall walk onto the sacred property and immediately feel the relaxed protection of the Goddess Tara. She is undoubtedly the most powerful female deity believed to possess the ability to guide followers, like a star, on their spiritual path.
As we stay with her for one week at the beginning of a new year, we can let go and fill up. Our fuel is the blue Sea of Cortez on our own private beach, the saltwater pool and hot tub, access to stand-up paddle boards, snorkeling gear, an amazing spa, a top notch cuisine restaurant, 2 palapas (one outdoor for yoga and one indoor for workshops), personal astrology lessons and practices, and so much more. We will be full of the universe's gifts.
This retreat was so wonderful! It was transformative with astrological knowledge that completely explained key people in my life and why they are there.
- Ann M.
Every retreat I have been on with Sandy and Alex has been LIFE CHANGING! I always learn more about myself that broadens my perspective.
It never fails, each retreat has the most AMAZING group of women, all beautiful, unique and dynamic in their own right!
- Janice V.
The group was so connected and loving to each other. I’ve never left a retreat feeling so relaxed and replenished and excited for the next one! I feel so blessed to have been a part of this retreat.
- Ann M.
I peeled back the onion and gained spiritual friends.

Casa Tara Resort & Spa
On the sacred grounds of Casa Tara, eco-friendly meets luxury and seeks to live in continuous harmony with the environment. The building materials were carefully selected for low-impact alternatives: Straw bales were used as filler in the walls for insulation, the grounds are watered with recycled water, and renewable solar energy powers part of the hotel. As for the atmosphere, a Feng Shui expert led the plans.
A small, intimate resort, and no room without an ocean view. You have the choice between a single or double room equipt with: Luxurious Bedding, Ensuite Bathrooms, Desk, Patio, Wifi, Air Conditioning, & Security Box
The Sea of Cortez
A easy walk down a private staircase leads to the secluded shore where you can snorkle, SUP board, or kayak. Enjoy watching the colorful kiteboarders, energizing sun rises, and deep red sunsets.
Fresh and Local Dishes
Fresh, locally caught fish and seafood is the main menu- and is one of the major reasons we return every year! The food is delicious, fresh, and made on-site. With a pre-fixed menu that can be modified for any dietary preference, the kitchen serves up decadent surprises for early morning snacks, breakfast, lunch, dinner, and cocktail hour! Alcohol is not covered in the retreat price, but available for purchase.
Learning your Astrology
Each retreat has its own astrological theme that is either present during the retreat or a major transit happening soon. Beginners are welcome! Since the application of the astrology is meant to open your mind and help direct your personal growth- you do not need to know how to read a chart or have any previous astrology experience. All you need is a willingness to listen and learn.
Creating your own talisman
There is no other souvenir quite like it. During the astrology workshops, you will handcreate a meaningful talisman that is all your own to remember the transformative and inspiring journey. Each talisman is different and is not disclosed until after the opening ceremony.

My intentions going into the La Ventana Retreat were to continue to allow a greater clarity of my Divine Purpose through the perspective of my Natal Chart and the many personal astrological insights shared at this Retreat!
The retreat brought me closer to myself as far as learning about my character, how I shine and why I do certain things. I love knowing about my chart and future events and how I want to move forward.
- Jean W.
Unless you are coming with a friend, you go in knowing no one. You leave with a connection with each soul that attends... crazy I know! But it happens! If anyone is ever apprehensive about joining, please take the chance.
You will not regret it!
- Janice V.
The schedule was perfectly balanced with free time and activity. The physical accommodations were peaceful and nurturing to help me disconnect from my daily fast paced life.
