Living Room Sessions
The stars & planets can feel so far away while astrologically they reflect the undeniable intensity brewing in our world right now. Living Room Sessions bring the sky back home while connecting community members in a meaningful way.
Living Room Sessions are hosted by Dru Ish in living rooms and community spaces across the country. Each session discusses astrology in relation to current world events while also exploring where these energies are manifesting in each person’s chart.
These workshop style sessions are designed to be affordable & accessible for both the novice and those who love knowing what it all means, while bridging the gap between our individualistic world and primal need for connection.
Dru Ish is a professional astrologer who has been reading the sky for over 20 years. She has a passion for being connected to community via meaningful threads and following the leads between seemingly unrelated people and events. She offers readings online and in person while touring with Jessika Fancy and their Astro Tattoo sessions. You can read more about Dru and her practice here and read blogs and follow her on IG.
If you would like to participate in Living Room Sessions in your community, sign up below. Due to the intimate setting, numbers are limited.

If you’d like to host in your living room and create space for connection, community and learning, please be in touch!
Working with the Astrology of 2018
With Venus taking us down to the Underworld in her pentacle creating retrograde cycle, and Mercury throwing us for a loop when it retrogrades in Sagittarius & Scorpio…while the Eclipse Cycle is changing signs…
…how do we keep going forward when the planets are taking us backwards?
What is this workshop about?
In this workshop, Dru will walk you through the astrological events of each month remaining in 2018.
It will offer you tools for how to work with the planets via understanding of where they are kicking up dust in your own chart.
We will break down the meaning of retrograde cycles, eclipse seasons, what it means to have both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, and what all this intense planetary activity is building toward.
Participants who sign up will each receive a workbook tailored to their own astrological chart.
THIS EVENT HAS SOLD OUT!

Saturn in Capricorn Workshop ~ Feb 7th, 2018
VANCOUVER, BC –
Everyone has Saturn in their chart.
We all feel the effect of Saturn when we assert boundaries and take personal responsibility. Saturn moving into Capricorn at Solstice 2017 ushered in a more serious and productive energy collectively, and this also means that the generation born in 1988 -1991 are now SATURN RETURNING.
Find out where it’s kicking up dust in your chart.

- Saturn through the lens of traditional & modern astrology
- Saturn in mythology

Jessika Fancy and I are combining our magic in these Astro Tattoo sessions. Each session involves a 30 minute astrology reading followed by an intuitive custom handpoke tattoo based on your reading. Each tattoo is unique, based on the themes and issues that come up in your reading.
We’re currently touring this project so let us know where you are and if you’d like to host Astro Tattoo sessions in your city!
40 DAYS / 40 NIGHTS
VENUS RETROGRADE CYCLE
Watch this space for an online course that will walk you through the upcoming Venus Retrograde cycle in Aries, March 2017.
It will be a 40 day / 40 night process (as is the retrograde cycle), offering daily astrological guidance for you to work through this journey into, and out of, the underworld.

Rumours, by Fleetwood Mac was released February 4th, 1977, in the shadow phase of this same retrograde cycle.
This is a call out for queer identified artists who are in the process of, or who have completed, a piece of autobiographical work, who are inspired to collaborate with an Astrologer on said piece.
WHO CAN APPLY?
Queer identified artists who are in the process of creating, or have completed, a piece of autobiographical work. All artistic mediums welcome & no astrological knowledge is required on the artists’ behalf.
I am currently living in Vancouver BC. When/If the collaboration is presented (potentially at the Queer Astrology Cenference), the artist/s will be required to travel to present their work. Depending on duration & content, only one or two applicants can be selected at this time.
WHAT WILL THIS ENTAIL?
You will need to know your exact time, place and date of birth. The intention is for me (the Astrologer) to locate your experience (piece of work) in your own astrological landscape. I will look at your natal chart (birth chart), transits (the movement of the planets at the time of the events), as well as progressions (background cycles that inform our daily choices) that were occurring at the time of life your piece is set in. This will require several interviews, either in person or skype/phone, asking questions pertaining to your life and experiences. An open discourse will be required and applicants will need to be a~OK with their horoscope & transits being presented in a public space.
As this is a collaborative piece, there will be a merging of the artists’ work and the astrology present in the work. How this manifests will depend on the art itself and an exploration of the creative process, together. The intention is to merge the two disciplines into one piece; the embodiment of astrology.
