I know a lot of people are just hanging on by a thread right now. It’s an intense time. There’s a LOT coming up that needs to be cleared ~ be it ancestral or familial, personal or collective ~ pain & trauma are asking for our attention to heal & be release. Nothing & no one is spared.
Keep hanging on, it will pass. This is a particularly intense week. The planets are having a fight in the sandbox: someone in the past left glass in there which is cutting to the core of deeper issues & everyone’s got sand in their eyes which is making it that much worse. Mars, the initiator, has been sent to his room & is having a tantrum. Saturn is attempting to reinforce outdated rules so, everyone’s either crying or trying to keep the cool hand of control. It’s a hard combination that calls for gentleness & honest self reflection.
One of the best remedies for lifting you out of your own situation is giving someone else a lift. Reach out now because everyone’s going through this – no matter what hemisphere you live in or what rock you might wanna hide under. It’s time for some deep digging & solidarity.
🏳️🌈 For those celebrating Pride: be bold, be brave & please be safe. 🏳️🌈
For those with Capricorn rising you don’t have to live in a constant state of deprivation & proving that you can DO IT. We know you can, it’s yourself you’re learning to trust. Let that softness in that others are offering you.
We are 100% heading toward a consciousness shift. The energy on the planet is increasing as the amount of people seeking, finding meaning in the mundane, and taping into nature’s wisdom has increased exponentially in the last few years.
CAN YOU FEEL IT?!
Gemini Season can render our energy scattered and directionless. The challenge amidst the capitalistic narrative is to remember that it’s OK; mutable signs are born to wander. Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces all gather facts and intuitive data to pass on to the succeeding Cardinal Signs who initiate the changes.
Destination is not always the goal. Seeking out all the options is wise to inform us of what direction to take next. Looking both ways before crossing the road is smart, just as spinning your own compass once in a while can help orient you toward what is really important, and what’s not.
Let this Gemini New Moon spin your compass. Allow all avenues of possibility to come into focus and keep your options open.
When seeking appears to be the goal it’s important to remember that there is no one to follow. There is only your own innate wisdom that can guide you and the best thing you can do for yourself and everyone else is learn to hear it, trust it and go with it.
Our last Astro Tattoo session in Victoria was with our queer elder who turns 73 when the Moon is next new & Uranus enters Taurus. To mark the change she feels coming she got her 1st ever tattoo! ✨
The more we do this project, the more profound I realise it is. To be able to sit with one of our elders, who was born when the world was a different place & look back at transits to her life & changes in the world was an honour.
Her 1st Tattoo is just for her, representing her past, present & future, laid out through the beautiful symbolism of astrology & reflected back in story & now as a beautiful reminder in her body. #blowsmeaway
🎶 Each session we listen to hits of the year you were born, as those songs were born & new in this world when you were. In this case we listened to the hits of 1945.🎶
For a world just emerging from war, the sounds were very relaxing. It was a time when people sat & listened to music, not in passing, but to a whole record, gathered round together. It was a defo change of pace from the 80’s & 90’s playlists that we often play.
We start the Salt Spring leg of our #islandtour today. The energy of the land here is palpable…& the way landscape shapes people & their energy is a welcome change to our city vibes.
• BE YOUR OWN ALGORITHM •
Taurus season is such a good reminder to get back to ourselves. Root yourself in your own personal rhythms to make sure what you’re doing, & who you’re doing it with, all align with your values & integrity.
You don’t need to carry a mountain of crystal to stay grounded if you’re connected with yourself ✨.
🌏 The Earth is not grounded on something solid. It’s a perfect rock hanging in space, containing its own rhythms & cycles which support life. 🌱🌿🌲🌳🌴🍁🍂
Chasing anything outside ourselves will only do just that: take us away from ourselves. Come home in Taurus season so you have something real to talk about in Gemini Season. #getrealwithtaurus#algorithmisnotyourrhythm#grounding#taurusseason#taurus#geminiinwaiting#geminiseason#earthfromspace
WE’RE TOURING AGAIN! 🎉🚐💓☀️MAY is shaping up to be one exciting month for us & this ever evolving Astro Tattoo adventure!!! ✨🤸🏽♀️✨
Is this Mercury retrograde over yet or WHAT?! It seems to be taking foreverrrrrrrrrrr…..
This Aries season has been driven by the force of Capricorn since it began! 😢 This retrograde period is a great example of how different Aries & Capricorn are, but also what can be achieved when they work together.
Aries is hot & fiesty, impulsive & ready to face any challenge that allows it to express courage! 💥⚡️💥
Capricorn, equally driven by a challenge, is more pragmatic in its approach, patient & persistent. 🌱🌳🍂
Put them together & you get controlled fire. 🛠🔥🔥🔥🛠
The ruler of Aries & this retrograde phase, Mars, is in slow & steady Capricorn. It’s kinda like driving up hill in a low gear; you know you’re gunna get there, but not in a hurry.
MERC PERKS: If you’re tearing your hair out waiting for something, or impatiently hurrying projects that are telling you they need more time, you can best use this energy constructively: Make plans for when the energy shifts, create strategy around obstacles & apply some patience & wisdom to anything that’s standing in your way…because there’s a LOT more energy in Capricorn right now & Grandma has been around the block more than any Aries spring chicken! #listentothelessons .
Respect your elders, yes, but also respect the fire & creativity you have inside you that is asking for dedication, guidance & care. You deserve that & the end product will have the stamp of sustainability instead of burnout.

As Mercury stations retrograde, I’m noticing a repetition of issues arising from the Venus Retrograde cycle this time last year. Are you?
Venus retrograde in Aries 2017 was a hella time. How could we forget!? The descent into the underworld of our own worth posed hard questions about the fine line between our own needs and our needs with an other: #ariesproblems. Facing our shadow, we walked the razors edge toward redemption and self-determination, meeting Chiron deep in the pool of collective pain and wounding, only to arise again with a new definition of self and initiative in relationship. PHEW!
It was a lot, and what I’m noticing with Mercury covering that same terrain right now is that unresolved issues from that time are arising…the questions that were unanswered are on the table again, and Aries’ need for space, independence & initiative is HOT!
As Saturn gets real in Capricorn, I’m offering a whole bunch of different readings to help guide you through.
I have Saturn Return readings for those who are currently in the grips, and one for those of you who are emerging from the dust clouds of Saturn in Sagittarius 💓🏹✨
I offer a Month by Month reading for everyone where I map the year ahead, a Natal Chart reading for those who want to dive in, 45 min readings for those who have a Quick Question…& my fave CYCLES OF LIFE.
