Astrology has been following me for most of my life. I have an early memory (sometime in early elementary school) sitting with my mom and a few friends looking at her astrology books and charts together. At that time, I didn’t know what they meant, but there was a part of me that knew that what we were looking at was special.
When I was more able to read, I remember going through her copy of Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs, completely fascinated.
As I hit middle and high school, I’d track the horoscopes, and what I knew of the charts of my friends and family–and crushes of course–often sharing impromptu astrological insights or secretly playing astrological matchmaker with myself and the boy in class.
On and off I’d study more seriously, always being pulled like a magnet to astrology books and imagery, or gobbling up information where I could.
When I worked at a movie theater, I loved working the projection booth because I’d be able to sneak in my favorite astrology books and read them under the soft light.
It wasn’t until around my Saturn Return, and in my Master’s studies with Jungian Depth Psychology that the archetypes took on a new weight, and new aliveness for me. I really started to feel in my bones that this work was so much more than a cool party trick.
It was an archetypal language that’s been passed down from our ancestors. It reflects our place in a larger divine consciousness. It’s something to hold with reverence. A tool to go inward, to grow, and expand our own inner knowing. A tool to help us be more whole and aligned in the world.
- As I wrestled with the normal questions of who am I, what’s my purpose, how can I best be of service, and how can I feel more integrated and whole, astrology helped me find the answers.
- As a writer and creative, astrology helped me build a practice that was sustainable and nourishing to me.
- When I felt lost, confused, or in the depths, astrology provided some guiding light.
- When I was in work that wasn’t lighting me up, astrology gave me clarity and direction.
I committed to take my studies seriously and surrender to the work that had been working me. I sought out apprenticeship, teachers and mentors. I committed myself to honor this knowledge with deep reverence.
This language is so beautiful. I can feel my heart opening just writing this.
I believe astrology has a way of helping us see ourselves clearly. Helping us reclaim what’s been cast off.
It helps us align with the natural cycles of our being.
Astrology helps us see, as the ancients said, our sliver of the divine mind.
It’s with pure love, joy, and a deep sense of honor and respect, that I do this work.
A little more about me:
- Pisces sun, Scorpio moon and rising.
- Projector in Human Design
- I live in beautiful Northern California with my partner and our fur babies.
- I just love cooking. Veganizing my favorite comfort foods is my favorite.
- My partner nicknamed me Spud because of how many potatoes I eat.
Creativity. Personal and spiritual growth. Alignment. Compassion. Depth. Simplicity.
A note on integrity:
With the democratization of astrology online (and anyone being able to pop-up and call themselves an astrologer), I feel it’s more important than ever to be fully transparent about my studies and where I’m at on the astrologer’s journey. Although, astrology has been following me since I was a little girl, I started a more serious self-directed apprenticeship the end of 2016. This has included a combination of weekly group classes taught by well-respected astrologer, Rio Olesky, university courses, online classes and teachings, readings, and self-study. I’m currently under the mentorship of Fern Vuchinich from Wisestars astrology, in the evolutionary tradition, as taught by her direct teacher, Steven Forrest. I regularly learn from amazing folks such as Chris Brennan, Kelly Surtees, Kaypacha, Eugenia Krok, and others. I naturally bring in my training in Jungian depth psychology. I take my work seriously. I’m learning everyday as new understandings of the archetypes, and their dance between each other, continue to unfold. As Saturn teaches, we mature with time and focus. As I’m in my first decade of serious practice, I price appropriately, commit to always learn along with you, and approach this work with curiosity and an open heart. <3
