About Dru

I am a consulting astrologer hailing from Melbourne, Bunurong country, currently living on unceded Coast Salish territories in British Columbia, Canada. My passion for 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.

Being Sagittarian, raised by two Sagittarian parents, I devoured my mother’s astrology books for an understanding of why they loved to stay home and read while I was always one foot out the door in search of adventure. How could we all be the same sign yet so different? Here, I began to incorporate the way in which I view the world with the ancient tradition of astrology. It spoke to me in a very clear and gentle way, and offered me compassion and understanding for life’s complexities and each persons specific needs.

As a 19 year old who was busting to break free, I left Australia with the intention of seeing the world through my own eyes. I traveled for 12 years with a backpack 3/4 full of astrology books, because the internet did not yet exist! I lived in a tree, hitch-hiked almost everywhere, busked for money and rode a motorbike by myself across the top of India after feeling the impact of 6 deaths in 6 months. I asked as many questions as I could of the many and varied people I encountered, and watched my own life unfold against the backdrop of transits and progressions in my own chart.

In 2008 I put the back pack down in order to pursue formal astrological study. I completed a 4 year Advanced Diploma in Astrology as Personal Cosmology, Relationship Astrology, Natal Chart Delineation and Predictive Astrology. I am currently devouring the deep roots of my lineage with ongoing studies in Hellenistic Astrology.

With a queer view, it is impossible to see the world as a level playing field. Intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality all influence the choices we make and the opportunities that are available to us. The fusion of queer theory and astrology is not new; Queer Astrology gives us a framework with which to deconstruct the oppressive confines of capitalism, patriarchy, heteronormativity and white supremacy. In this, it is available to everyone and encourages us to remember that we are the magic in everyday life. Carving out space to dream in a busy world is not only o.k., it’s imperative to survival.

Astrology is my cosmology. It’s the lens through which I view the world. As an astrologer, it is my intention to inspire a curiosity in you about the uniqueness that you are, and to lay out a map through the often mysterious terrain of life. I offer a range of consultations and am available in person and via Skype.

Astrology is not separate from life.
