ABOUT DRU

My journey with astrology began as a youngster who was open to the curiosities of coincidence, with a deep need to know why people did the things they did.

I am a consulting astrologer hailing from Melbourne, Bunurong country of the Kulin nation, currently practising on the unceded Indigenous lands of The Kanien’kehá:ka Nation, Tiohtià:ke/Montréal.

Hi, I’m Dru, and I’m of the trees.

Born on my Dad’s birthday, I wanted to understand why he loved to stay home and read while I was always one foot out the door in search of adventure. How could we be the same sign and so different? From here, I began melding together personal points of intersection with the ancient tradition of astrology. After all these years, it continues to offer me compassion and understanding for life’s complexities and each persons specific needs throughout.

As a 19 year old busting to break free, I left Australia with the intention of seeing the world through my own eyes. I travelled & studied for 12 years; my backpack 3/4 full of astrology books. I embarked on a BA of Health Science: Naturopathy, lived close to nature and rode a motorbike by myself across India after feeling the impact of 6 deaths in 6 months.

Astrology stayed with me throughout. I learnt by testing the knowledge against lived experience, seeing how it expressed in people and situations. I asked many questions of the various people I encountered, and watched my own life unfold against the backdrop of transits, progressions & planetary cycles.

Having a deep respect for lineage and astrology as an oral tradition, I put the backpack down in 2008. I applied the previous 12 years of self-study to formal astrological education, completing a 4 year Advanced Diploma in Astrology as Personal Cosmology, Relationship Astrology, Natal Chart Delineation and Predictive Astrology. Since 2016 I have been exploring the roots of this lineage with ongoing studies in Hellenistic Astrology, and have since stepped into the magical river that is Horary.

I have a blog, a newsletter & an Instagram page which I inconsistently update. BP (before the pandemic) I travelled with Jessika Fancy and our Astro Tattoo project. We crossed North America several times, drove our van up the east coast of Australia and down the east coast of New Zealand, which was a visual ecstasy.

I offer readings covering a scope of Natal charts, looking at the Year Ahead, Saturn Return readings, Children’s charts and Horary questions. Hit me up! As my learning was initially based in experiential research, an essence of this is always present. I work from the premise that you know who you are, and astrology can act as a map, or signpost, to support you along your way.

With a queer view, it is impossible to see the world as a level playing field. Intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, geographical location and politics all influence the choices we make and the opportunities that are available to us. My experience of astrology with queerness has shown me that creating a framework with which to deconstruct capitalism, patriarchy, heteronormativity and white supremacy cannot be separate from my practice. We are the magic in everyday life. We are living embodiments of our charts and we each deserve to experience that fully.

Astrology is not separate from life. It’s a lens we can look through to give shape to meaning, and understanding to our queries. As your Astrologer, it is my intention to inspire a curiosity in you about the uniqueness that you are.
