Astrology, I believe, is a way of building self-awareness and illuminating an ancient road map. I love how it reveals a kaleidoscope of characteristics and contradictions in the human psyche and gives us a sense of being connected to something greater. We are all made of star stuff and this discipline can be fun, completely accessible and help us live into our potential.
The History Of Everything
It all started with those bygone 99-cent "Starscrolls" that I bought religiously with my best friend every week, hungry for answers about adolescent life-or-death situations like if that Gemini was going to ask me out. It got more interesting (and more meaningful) when my mom gifted me a personalized birth chart reading with a talented astrologer as a graduation gift from high school. I was floored that these celestial bodies looming in the Milky Way could somehow attune to inner realities that I thought I was pretty good at keeping under wraps - from the sensitivity inherent in my Pisces Moon to my fascination with humor and language, and even my rebellious streak!
He recommended the foundational book "The Inner Sky" by the preeminent Evolutionary Astrologer Steven Forrest which gifted me a deep and grounded understanding of the signs, planets and houses and their role in the chart. Steven Forrest ended up becoming my lifelong mentor and friend, his wise voice reverberating in my ear as I endeavor to untangle the mysteries of the soul through looking at the distribution of planets across the sky at the time of birth, or how the symbols of the Tarot tell a story about this snapshot of time.
Cosmic Labor of Love
Being an astrologer was never a profession I never set out to do or how I planned to use my degree in Communication Studies (sorry, U.C.L.A.!) It was a language I enjoyed which helped me sort out what I felt were competing aspects of my personality. Exchanging tarot readings for haircuts in New York City, writing blogs for Astrology.com, radio show appearances, my own radio show; all building blocks which led me to providing a platform where I can connect with others and share what I’m passionate about.
The best kind of reading, I believe, is one that confirms your deep inner knowing. While we all have access to this information on some level, Astrology and Tarot can offer timely information that gives us permission to trust ourselves, see our experiences in a more meaningful context, and take action on that still, small voice we may have been resisting. It can also help us laugh at ourselves and how ridiculous we’ve been in perpetuating our blindspots through repetition of self-defeating patterns. Can you think of a better gift to friend? :)
