Stressed when: My to-do list is overwhelming which is LITERALLY ALWAYS.
Impressed when: Someone gets my aesthetic, whether it be sending me a song they know I’d like, or picking out a gift that fits me perfectly.Anything new you’ve been working on or excited to see come to life in 2021 you wanna share? The Strology School is launching March 1st! That includes my new Fundamentals Course, The Eleventh House which is a membership community, and more to come. I’m also writing a book to be released in 2022, and hoping to bring my magazine, NFLUX back next year too.
When did you know you were meant to practice astrology and share it with others? I was practicing and sharing it from as long as I can remember (in middle school I was telling girls who they’d be most compatible with), but it was when I was working in advertising (and hating it) that I realized what I really needed to be doing was serving people with astrology.
What takeaways do you hope your clients and followers take away from your work in the astro space? I hope my work makes people excited about astrology and the potential for good it can ignite in their lives. It is a tool that can be used in so many different ways, and engaging with it can make life richer and slightly more manageable to navigate.
You recently relocated to LA from NYC, how has it impacted your life and practice? It’s been incredible! Having my own space for the first time in my life, and so much of it at that, has really changed my life for the better. Everything I do is very non-linear, so having the time and space to explore what work schedule is best for me has been a true blessing.
Tell us why you picked The Loveland Foundation as your non-profit? Adequate healthcare for Black Women is so desperately needed! While its beginning to be less stigmatized, access is still a barrier for a lot of women. Loveland is an incredible organization helping to provide care to more Black women, and I’m all about it!
How can we book a reading with you? What would you consider your astro specialty? You can get on my mailing list! We send an email out every month when my schedule opens up for the following month. I may or may not be taking readings over the next few months, depending on how busy I am! In terms of specialty, I’m definitely a forecaster! I love looking into someone’s past and future to help them orient themselves on their path. I also love teaching and helping folks make better sense of their chart and lives.Where can we find you on the internet and beyond? www.thestrology.com, www.freshvoicesinastrology.com, @thestrology on IG and Clubhouse and @thestrology_ on Twitter. @nfluxmag on IG and twitter…. That’s it for now!
