LOVE NOTE 4 THE WKND: I have this vision of myself. I’m golden + bright, sunshine incarnate. I exude something beyond joy— ecstasy. I light up a room. I am generous, powerful, & effortlessly beautiful. my style is flawless & dazzling in its authenticity. I am wise without words, though I know how to use them with exceptional skill. I am noticed and respected, I don’t have to choose between the two. I’m wealthy and protected. I am believed & beloved. this is how I am…underneath the uncovering. I’m becoming more interested in how I am being than who I am. "who I am” identity is fluid, unpredictable, it’s change—like god. how I am being is who I am. I feel like healing has given me access to care more about the how than the solidifying who. healing is uncovering the self underneath the debris of trauma & false separation. more importantly, healing allows me to access ways of being that weren’t sustainable when I was separated from myself & the interdependent impact of behaviors (how ). I think healing is restoring & repairing through repetition, like physical therapy. maybe healing just brings us back to neutral & everything from there is evolution/growth/increase. I was raised in a spirituality that conflated healing with transcendence but I don’t think that’s true anymore. anything I’ve ever thought I transcended has resurfaced in deeper layers. any experiences I have of transcendence are a collaboration between my ability to be present & embrace temporality. this ability increases as a result of healing but is not contained by it. I’m tired of watching us struggling to heal on an eternal fucking task list without being anchored in some kinda love for ourselves, some kinda recognition of our inherent divinity. what is the vision of yourself beyond healing & underneath repair? every version of you that’s ever existed & will exist already exists. how can you access a future version now? how can you act as if it already is? that’s praxis:“a practical application of theory.” it’s the Sun in pisces +++++capricorn action. maybe this is where healing & transcendence meet but, look down at your feet. keep them here on the ground. ‘cause we need you.🔮
✨What are your plans this weekend? Are you making space for pleasure and self soothing? Do you struggle truly enjoying alone time? ✨ - Self soothing is a skill many of us struggle with, especially those of us with anxious attachment styles. We are tied to a belief that safety and pleasure can only be found in others, that we cannot possibly find it in ourselves first - we need it to be granted to us to feel like we deserve it. We might yearn for someone to come along, take us in their hands, understand us completely, wash our wounds, tuck us in, love us completely, never leave us. In the context of our relationships this can be stifling, not only to our partners who take on the job of regulating our emotions, but to ourselves as we consistently give away the responsibility of our self worth. In the context of pleasure, we cannot find it in ourselves. Creativity suffers, sexual desire suffers, relaxation suffers; all because we can't stand being alone with ourselves long enough to tap into our desire. - What happens when we really start taking our pleasure seriously is that we reclaim the responsibility of our own self worth. We learn to fill up that emptiness ourselves with the things we truly desire. Our relationships shift into a more secure position as we meet in the middle as equal individuals rather than as co-dependents. The only person that can offer us the full love, presence and security that we crave is ourselves. That reality is frightening but freeing. Jump into it. When we commit to ourselves fully we invite much healthier relationship dynamics into our lives. - Self pleasure is transformative. It's a journey that takes time. We have a relationship to ourselves and we have to treat it as such - getting to know ourselves, building trust, fostering positive communication and respect. Be patient. Treat yourself like you'd treat someone you love, even if you don't feel the love for yourself yet. Take your most romantic and erotic daydreams and fulfil them yourself. Then repeat this often enough until you realise you deserve it.
Saltwater Stars will emerge with a beautiful new structure in two weeks! here’s what you need to know for now. readings: changes will include new options for booking like short & sweet email readings for your quick questions & a 2 hour deep dive. I used to offer email readings & mini readings “back in the day” & am excited for them to return in this combined iteration. the regular readings have increased in structural clarity as well. horoscopes: what was the COMMUNE (monthly horoscope space ) has been evolving into what is basically a site membership that includes but goes beyond the benefits of monthly horoscopes. this will be reflected in new tiers & added bonuses. you can still become a member at anytime. accessibility tier: this is dissolving into a finessed strategy for offering seriously discounted sliding scale rates to my low income BIPOC & LGBTQ+ people. payment plans will still be available to everyone else. the accessibility tier currently offers $75/50 minutes & $120/80 minutes to *anyone*. regular rates will be reduced but readings of that length at those price points will no longer be available after the restructure emerges. if you would like to avail yourself of the ease of access to longer readings at those prices, you can do so until the full moon on March 9th, 3 days before the changes are implemented. Mercury rx disclaimer: details subject to change. I will be divulging how all of this emerged & answering questions sometime over the next two weeks for those who are interested in the behind-the-scenes workings of operating an enterprise like mine. plus there’s so much more happening behind the scenes & in the details that I am eager to share with yous! leave me a 💋 if you’re excited, too! as always, all the links you ever need in the bio. 💋💋💋
My astrology newsletter for March is up on my website and in your inbox. Link in bio. Next month is a change Maker but there’s still a bit more of February left. Friday, Feb 28, Venus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn. We’re invited to exploring the difference between loving passionately or possessively, richly or selfishly, deeply or obsessively. We all know the difference but sometimes it’s hard to navigate the waters when we’re in the seas of love. There’s power in this transit if you harness it towards your innermost good. Root down to rise up this weekend. #astrology #queerastrology #venus #venusinaries #marchastrology #pluto #capricorn #thewednesdaywitch
Yeah I got a question - WHO THE FUCK does The Gottman Institute think they are with this level of radical truth telling?! UGH I LLLLLOOOOVVVVEEEE IT. Venus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn today! I love how this infographic has us ask ourselves (Aries ) how responsible we are (Capricorn ) in tending to the structure that gives and receives trust. 🥰

Moon enters Taurus 1:30am CST Friday, February 28 🌙 “Allowing fluidity to be present in our healing processes doesn’t mean we forego attending to our boundaries, needs, and desires. We get to practice that discernment today when the Moon enters Taurus. Boundaries help us let go of the right things, not just everything. It helps to know what we need and what we want (not necessarily the same thing—needs and wants ). 🌙 Desire is a dance within our relationships. Needs are essential requirements. Tap into your needs with the help of this crescent Moon in Taurus. With the help of Venus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn (in square aspect ), tap into wants. Relationships are impacted by power dynamics and assertiveness. How do you want to express your desire for power and agency in your relationships? Negotiate consent for meeting those desires. 🌙 Retrograding Mercury in Pisces makes an encouraging sextile aspect to Uranus in Taurus. This is the second of three times Mercury will make this relationship with the rebel planet. (First was on Feb. 6 and the last will be Mar. 22. ) What are we missing in our activism? What liberation do we need to pursue? This connection is about challenging old ways of thinking. Stir it up. Let mystery guide you to new, radical ways of thinking and speaking.” — today’s Follow the Moon forecast from @teristar : founder of @starsdanceastrology 🌙 #queerastrology #queerwitch #queermagic #followthemoon #queer #queereye #queerlove #queerpride #queerastrologer #queerforecast #astrology #astrologyposts #astrologyforecast #boundaries #fluidity #moonmagic #taurusmoon #astrologymagic #reclaimingwitchcraft #witchesofinstagram . . 📷 credit: @rtrvsd 🌙🌙🌙 Made with photos by: Laura Vinck
Astrology for Friday, 28 February 2020: Today is a busy day in the skies. The Moon ingresses into Taurus—the sign of its exaltation, but without reception from Venus in Aries. The Moon in Taurus shifts our attention down into the felt experience of the body, our sensuous selves, that which nourishes us and connects us to pleasure. It may not feel immediately clear how to access the resources needed to shift our attention in these ways. It may take more patience and careful feeling—in many ways, strategies that are opposite from those of Venus in Aries. The Moon then makes a conjunction to Uranus and a sextile to Mercury moving retrograde in Pisces. Disruptive Uranus may unsettle our habitual ways of connecting to our bodies and emotions, daring us to feel something new or in a new way. This could leave us feeling unsteady or disoriented. The sextile to Mercury reminds us that there is information that has not yet been revealed, and we may not yet see how this story will unfold. What would it be like to become more present for yourself in this moment as well as attentive to the lessons of your past selves, without knowing what the outcome of this learning will be? Venus then makes a square to Pluto in Capricorn, likely activating power struggles in our relationships—particularly between what we want right now and what we desire in the long-term. The Moon makes a trine to Mars in Capricorn then a sextile to the Sun in Pisces, reminding us to proceed with steady, deliberate action and to move with that which is life affirming. Even if you don’t know where you are going, you know how to get there as long as you continue to connect to that which allows you to shine more brightly. Finally, Mercury makes a sextile to Uranus, signaling unexpected messages or the arrival of information that has the potential to unsettle and shake things up, potentially situations that you thought were over and complete. Don’t be surprised if a process that seemed to be finished breaks open again in ways that could not have been anticipated. #cowitchcraftofferings #michaeljmorris #astrology #dailyastrology #queerastrology #astrologersofinstagram #queerwitch #queerwitchcraft #queermagic
POWER STRUGGLE IN RELATIONSHIP? 💪🏼 Power planet pluto is an energy that most of us turn away from and project onto other people rather than own it and stand up for ourselves. It’s often the stuff that gets swept under the carpet or crammed into dark cupboards. However Pluto is your power station, so own your entire being. When someone else has the power, you’ve usually given it to them psychologically. Own it and watch the power balance change in an instant. Easier said than done but worth the effort! The square to Venus suggests this week will show up imbalance in your relationships so note who you’ve given it to, who you take it from, and set about rebalancing. The square means it’s going to feel really uncomfortable. Like icky, painful, and crap, with a side dish of shame. The longer you leave it though, the worse it gets so shine a light in there. Pluto square to Venus also means stopping at nothing to transform beauty and relationships-so use the tension wisely, step up, and take control with maturity. Look at where and how you’re trying to fit in, rather than belong. There’s an essential difference. . 💜🪐 Love you long time Starlings! ⚡️💜 . . . image altered from @godimsuchadyke #venussquarepluto #plutosquarevenus # #strongfemalelead #StarPower #starstruck #Aquariusseason #glamourscope #horoscope #astrology #zodiac #zodiacsigns #crystals #tarot #mystic #cosmic #queerzodiac #starsigns #queerastrology #piscesseason #venusinaries #feminist #astrologyicon #pisces #astrologersofinstagram #girlboss #modernmystic #mystic #horoscopes #mercuryretrograde #empoweredwomenempowerwomen .

Class Five: Planets in Aspect —> Six Week Course <— 🪐 Did you realize the planetary Godds were having a conversation about you? They are, through the aspects they make with each other. An aspect is a particular geometric distance between planets and/or points in the chart. 🪐 Each type of aspect has its own energetic tone describing the nature of the conversation. This dialog takes us beyond sign and house to another level of understanding what the Godds were saying to each other when you were born and what they have to say about you now. 🪐 Aspects are a key part of astrological interpretation. They apply to qualities in the natal chart and to the ongoing conversations the planets are having through transits, We will cover these aspects: conjunction, sextile, square, trine, quincunx, and opposition. 🪐 Students will learn how to recognize aspects quickly in a chart and to understand the concept of orbs and synodic cycles (cycles of aspects between two planets ). 🪐 #queerastrology #queerwitch #queermagic #queer #queerart #queerastrologers #queerwitches #queerartist #queereye #queerlove #queers #queercommunity #astrology101 #astrologyclass #queermysteryschool #learnastrologyonline #onlineclass #reclaimingwitches #witch #witchy #witchcraft #witchesofpittsburgh #witchesofinstagram
Have you ever thought about getting your astrological chart read or WHY the heck people do? 👇🏽 When you were born the Sun, Moon and the rest of the planets were in a specific placement in the sky. 🤓☀️ 🌙 For all you creatives out there think of the relationship between the PLANETS, ZODIAC sign in a particular planet and the HOUSES of astrology as a theatrical play or a story you can tell. All of the planets travel in an individual orbit, at a different tempo and pace. ➡️The planets are the actors. ➡️The zodiac signs are the characters. ➡️The houses in which the particular planet is in are the settings that the story takes place. Use the energy unique to each planet to express your story you want to create with less resistance.....and that my friend is how you FLOW and become more like the STAR ⭐️of your own story . Tune into Thursday’s episode of the Dreamboard Social Club to hear the amazing twin Gemini Colin Bedell of @queercosmos give us a crash course on astrology. #linkinbio #astrologyposts #astrologyreadings #spiritualityawake #queerastrology #queercosmos #breathwork #breathworkfacilitator #natalchart #sunandmoon #yinandyang #masculineandfeminine #feminineflow #authenticflow
Had the loveliest time with Dr. Holly Richmond today who - in typical Aries Sun style! - is pioneering clinical research on the recovery of sexual and relational health for survivors of assault and trauma. In my Venus in Aries video, there was a strong resonance with Holly’s work so we’ll be recording a conversation in the weeks ahead. If you have any questions you’d like me to ask this Aries trailblazer, my comment section, DMs, and email is totally open-hearted for your (queer )ies. 💗

The piscean sun is barreling into rx mercury-- our prescription for talking to ourselves before we spew logorrhetically all over our loved ones-- while both make a gentle sextile to mars, god of conflict and cock and boundless actions. My dream makes sense in light of these stars (especially the lewd parts...mmm; the sense of touch and smell in dreamtime lingers longer than when I'm awake; I could get lost in the memory of a single damp spot from a dream ). Meanwhile, the wandering venus-- still uncomfortable in her neighbor's apartment-- is battling everything but herself in my own chart, and I am uncomfortable and broke and single. +++ As a wise man once told me, "boys are a distraction; when you die, make sure you keep going to the end" +++ Nothing but fire and air and big ideals in the cards. You don't need to feel it to do it, so get to it; you've already got what you need. There are only so many times Universe can show you the way; you still have to travel the path yourself. +++ It was twilight in my dream, and although you weren't there, your energy was. Your energy is everywhere. Am I more afraid that you don't know how I feel or that you do? Would it be better or worse to know you feel the same way, too? +++ sigh.... I've never been so ready for March. #mercuryretrograde #queerastrology #queertarot #nouvellevague
Moon in Aries February 27—Crescent Moon: Germinating 🌙 “Notice your surroundings, right now. What do they—the land, sky, waters, and non-human creatures of place—tell you about letting go? Astrological wisdom doesn’t just come from the stars. It comes through our relationships with our environments, too. The stars hold the stories that we see around us through the seasons that live within us. This lunar cycle, seeded in Pisces, tells a story of healing. The Earth shows us how. 🌙 Where I live, the snow is beginning to melt but it doesn’t do it all at once. There will be periods of flow and freeze and more snow before we are entirely done with winter. This process of thaw shows me one way that Pisces makes healing possible. It is a process of back and forth, becoming fluid for a while and then becoming solid again. It is a process that happens over time, seeming to retreat for a bit, but steadily moving towards renewal, a new beginning. I am thinking about tapping into this magic at this phase of the Moon. What do I want to melt away? How can I let that melting happen in me? I want to be patient with this process and apply my intention for cultivating healing to it. 🌙 Recognizing that patience with the process is part of the process, it is important to notice the contrasting energy coming from the Moon in Aries. Aries is perhaps the least patient of signs. There is a desire to speed up. This phase of the Moon also encourages that. This crescent Moon is also gifted with a kiss from Venus in Aries today. Fires are sparked. Water begins to flow. Venus isn’t supposed to like being in Aries, but it isn’t that simple. If Venus is love, then every sign Venus moves through shows us a particular way to love. The Aries way is to dare to love even when it frightens us, even when we don’t feel loveable. At sunset today, we see the crescent Moon and Venus sharing an intimate moment. What healing are you seeking for your relationships? Embracing discomfort can become courage.” 🌙 Follow the Moon daily forecast from our own @teristar of @starsdanceastrology #queerwitch #queermagic #queerastrology #queerastrologer #queerforecast #queermysteryschool #followthemoon
Astrology for Thursday, 27 February 2020: Recovering from the superior square from Mars yesterday, today the Moon in Aries moves through a square from Jupiter in Capricorn, a conjunction with Venus in Aries, then squares from Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn. In Aries, we may be moving through waves of rage and the drive to channel our rage into action. The superior square from Jupiter, a condition of bonification, encourages us to consider how the frustration or anger we are experiencing now is perhaps part of a larger and longer process, covering over both what has come before as well as possibilities yet to come. As the Moon conjoins Venus, we may reconnect to our desires and the erotic as a source of power. Venus is in antithesis or detriment in Aries, so we may be more aware of the dissonance between our longings for both connection and independence. The squares from Pluto and Saturn bring me back to the ways in which rage emerges from loss and grief. Judith Butler writes, “Speaking from rage does not always let us see how rage carries sorrow and covers it over … How often is sorrow effectively shouted down by rage? How does it happen that sorrow can bring about the collapse of rage? Is there something to be learn about the sources of nonviolence from this particular power of grief to deflate rage of its destructiveness?” As you encounter your own rage, get curious about how this rage covers over and obscures grief and sorrow. What is this grief so unbearable that it becomes transformed into rage, and how might connecting and even resurrecting that grief, allowing yourself to feel what may seem unbearable, be a process of transforming destructive impulse into nonviolence? #cowitchcraftofferings #michaeljmorris #astrology #dailyastrology #queerastrology #astrologersofinstagram #queerwitch #queerwitchcraft #queermagic #witchesofinstagram #columbusohio #thursday #judithbutler #moon #aries #jupiter #capricorn #venus #pluto #saturn
These days especially, it feels like such a true blessing to be doing work in astrology. It was such an exciting and grounding experience to chat with Kipp of The Basement Astrologers Podcast. One of my goals this year was to be able to talk to people more about the nature of my work. Our main focus was to talk about Locational Astrology. But of course, we digressed into conversations about learning astrology, marginality, queerness, estrangement from family, collaboration, and of course #DignityBabes community dream work. Also shout out to my first teacher @locallyfamous - she offers such affordable and valuable one and one mentorship and I will forever be grateful 🙏🏽❤️! Anyways, give it a listen if you like - link in bio. Let me know what you think!
Queer magic affirms the authentic self rooted in relationship. 🌑 Queer magic dares to embrace fluidity to dismantle oppressions. 🌘 The Moon’s fluidity of phases shows us how to embrace our fluid selves to create change. Moon-based magic is based on the Moon’s rhythms of change. 🌗 We begin with the setting of intention at the new Moon, and follow the Moon through phases of challenge, illumination, and harvest. 🌖 We will explore the scaffolding upon which to build our queer magic—the eight phases of the Moon. 🌕 These eight phases describe the primal cycle of birth, life, death, and rebirth. This cycle is the plant’s cycle, which is the pattern that magic takes to manifest change and rooted relationship. 🌔 The Moon has been teaching these things since the dawn of time. 🌓 In this class, we set a spell of intention following the Moon through the signs and phases. 🌒 All our classes include at least one webinar that students will be able to attend live or view later, instructional materials, portions of the Starsdance Mystery School workbook, and online discussion 🌑 #queerastrology #queerwitch #queermagic #queermoon #moon #moonmagic #lunar #lunarmagic #queerastrologer #queerlove #queermoonmagic #astrology101 #astrologywitch #astrologywitches #learnwitchcraftathome #learnwitchcraft #witchy #witchythings #onlinewitch #witchesofpittsburgh #witchesofinstagram

Astrology for Wednesday, 26 February 2020: Today Mercury in Pisces makes a sextile to Mars in Capricorn. Mercury is currently retrograde, so this is an aspect that will repeat once Mercury goes direct. Whatever this aspect describes today may foreshadow events in mid-April, when Mercury in Aries again makes this sextile to Mars in Aquarius. There are injuries that need to be addressed and redressed. There is harm that needs to be examined in order to facilitate accountability. What are the wounds that you are tending, and what would it require to move toward healing? How might you ask for the processes you need in order to come back into connection? The Moon in Aries is then overcome by a superior square from Mars in Capricorn. Mars is exalted in Capricorn, elevated and powerful, and rules the Moon in Aries. This may describe intense emotional or even physical harm, conflict, or separation. If it feels like you are under attack or being struck down by those in positions of authority, seek solace in the places and people who remind you that you are loved, that you are enough, that you belong, and that you are already connected to a vast world of others. #cowitchcraftofferings #michaeljmorris #astrology #dailyastrology #queerastrology #astrologersofinstagram #queerwitch #queerwitchcraft #queermagic #witchesofinstagram #columbusohio #wednesday #moon #pisces #aries #mars #mercury #mercuryretrograde #capricorn
political resistance is trauma recovery. trauma recovery is political resistance.[image] whiteness is traumatizing. capitalism is traumatizing. ableism is traumatizing. sexism is traumatizing. the patriarchy is traumatizing. heteronormativity is traumatizing. classism is traumatizing. xenophobia is traumatizing. climate change is traumatizing. etc. etc. etc. this is why I offer emoceanal support for apocalypse. we’re not only UNCOVERING but deconstructing all this shit and it’s overwhelming and exhausting and necessary and fucking beautiful and excruciatingly painful. personal apocalypse happens, too—outer planet transits, anyone? PLUS collective apocalypse becomes personal apocalypse, especially when you’re engaged in the uncovering & deconstructing. this is part of why trauma informed astrological counseling & spiritual services are important. if you’re working with folx 1:1 about their personal lives, understanding trauma will inevitability come up is critical. and then, equipping yourself to navigate that with your client even if it means referring them elsewhere. to speak specifically to astrological practice: it also means your suggestions, advice, delineations, EVERYTHING is filtered through a respect & basic understanding of trauma & how that may impact a persons capacity to engage/respond. this means readings/consultations are relationship based rather than outcome based. it also means knowing that often what is in between someone & where they want to be isn’t a difficult placement or transit, but years/generations of trauma. this presences the more spiritual aspects of astrological counseling work. it also presents the questions: can we see trauma in the chart? can we see intergenerational inheritances? yes & yes. but that’s not going to be as useful as being able to honor what’s coming up for a client. how does an astrologer/spiritual practitioner become trauma informed? to start (emphasis on start ): engage in ethical/trauma counseling courses or programs, read/listen to books, get to know your own trauma/recovery. access to these resources are more available than ever.✨
Third, we have: Conjuring Signs —> Five Week Course <— 🌙 Astrology’s 12 signs are the seasons of soul -12 expressions of the Sun’s purpose, the Moon’s need, Mercury’s thought, Venus’ beauty, Mars’ desire, Jupiter’s belief, and Saturn’s mastery. The signs are the conjuring of intention. Working with the signs, we learn how to align our magic with the season. We learn how to work with the energy of the moment. 🌙 In this class, we follow the Moon in real time through each sign over the course of one lunar cycle to enhance your understanding of each sign’s power and energy. This class covers the Queer elements of astrology and the genetics of a sign. With an understanding of the signs, we conjure deeper relationship with the Cosmos.

“One of my favorite parts of the #reclaimingwitchcraft tradition is that priestesses have never told me what to believe. Instead, they created the space for me to discover what I believe. Over and over. I owe deep gratitude to every single one for that. ✨ I would say that I’m very lucky to have found my spiritual home, but this is magic: so I’ll just say that I’m glad I Listened when the Universe sent me The Signal that it was time to Get To Work loving myself.” ✨ @aurorathewitch : Starsdance Mystery School co-facilitator and Reclaiming Priestess #queerwitch #queermagic #queerastrology #queermysteryschool #queerlove #queerness #reclaimingwitch #whyidothis #magic #whatismagic #lovethyself #messagesfromtheuniverse #universe #spirituality #allowspace #anticodependency #witchesofpittsburgh #witchesofinstagram

#Mercury is #cazimi with the Sun at 6 #Pisces on Tuesday, Feb 25, at the mid-way point of their retrograde cycle. Mercury is most commonly associated with the mind, + as the God of Communication who gifted language to humans, we feel the impact of their retrograde cycle when speech doesn’t flow as usual. But a mixed up email is just an external indication of a deeper process. During Mercury Rx we are invited to explore the relationship between external events + internal reactions. It is an opportunity to gain insight into our true nature. Mercury is a complex deity + the mind is a complex concept. Popular psychology defines the mind as the seat of human consciousness. The sense of “I” or the ego that personalizes experiences + makes sense of our surroundings. The brain is an organ of measurable parameters that hosts the mind, but consciousness itself is vast + mysterious. Our senses are bombarded with a constant influx of information, data that the mind sorts, analyzes + stores. Meditation explores the relationship between the “I” + mind. I am often so identified with what is happening to me, but when I sit in stillness I can watch the thoughts arise + the emotional reactions they trigger. Who is it that is observing these movements of the mind? The eternal soul that resides within our heart can only be glimpsed when we have achieved an amount of peace in the mind. Many ancient spiritual practices are devoted to facilitating this process + have offered us elaborate blueprints to follow. The Upanishads, a series of sacred Hindu Sanskrit texts, distinguishes between consciousness, higher intellect, + the mind. Mercury as the God of liminal space travels between all of these realms. We have the opportunity when Mercury is cazimi, in the heart of the Sun, our soul, to receive a drop of wisdom from pure consciousness that our higher intellect can put to use for our greatest good. Witness the mind today, + in doing so, notice who it is that thinks, feels, reactions, + speaks. This is a day of great illumination. #astrology #thewednesdaywitch #queerastrology
#mercurioretrogrado se encuentra con el sol en #PISCIS • Durante la retrogradación de mercurio hay un momento en el cual este planeta se funde y encuentra con la energía solar. Esto representa un momento de iluminación y conciencia en el cual la retrogradación de este planeta nos pone en contacto con aquellos aspectos, noticias y situaciones que no habíamos visto en el plano racional y que ahora vuelven a nosotros para mostrarnos el camino y dirección a seguir en la reformulación de nuestros proyectos y procesos evolutivos. • During Mercury rev- there is a time when this planet melts and meets solar energy. This represents a moment of enlightenment and awareness in which the retrogradation of this planet puts us in touch with those aspects, news and situations that we had not seen on the rational plane and now return to us to show us the way and direction to follow in the reformulation of our projects and evolutionary processes. • ♈♉♊♋♌♍♎♏♐♑♒♓ ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Online attention: DM - whatsapp +590690229259 | . . . . . . #astrologia #astrology #astrologyart #astrologysigns #queerastrology #astrologypost #astrologer #spirituality #spiritualityart #zodiacpost #dailyastrology #uranus #zodiacpost #astrologersofinstagram #queer #gender #genderfluid #gayculture #queerastrology #queerastrolger #karmicastrology #evolutionaryastrology .
Astrology for Tuesday, 25 February 2020: Today the Moon in Pisces makes sextiles to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn before ingressing into Aries. So often it is the places where we’ve been wounded and the parts of ourselves that have been abandoned that hold the deepest sources of power for creating change in our lives. This is not accidental because it is the parts of us that present the greatest threat to existing systems, structures, and operations of power—the parts of us that are most different or divergent, farthest from that which is centered in our culture or elevated within the current hierarchies—that endure the most forceful repression, restriction, or punishment. As the Moon completes its time in Pisces and moves into Aries, how might you begin to feel for those broken and abandoned places within yourself, then take up the charge to defend and protect those precious places, beginning to access their power? Today we also experience a moment of clarity within Mercury’s retrograde through Pisces. As Mercury makes its first conjunction to the Sun—a condition called “cazimi”—we may glimpse a pathway through the fog, and catch a glimmer of understanding of what this period of reflection and review might be teaching us. This is not the end of the retrograde, but a moment of insight, inspiration, or intuition to guide us as we continue to retrace our strokes to learn what we perhaps missed the first time we swam across these waters. #cowitchcraftofferings #michaeljmorris #astrology #dailyastrology #queerastrology #astrologersofinstagram #queerwitch #queerwitchcraft #queermagic #witchesofinstagram #columbusohio #tuesday #moon #pluto #saturn #pisces #capricorn #aries #mercurycazimi #mercuryretrograde #suninpisces
after receiving my diploma from the Academy of AstroPsychology in ‘15, my political & healing justice education became more important than any other learning curve. as a counseling astrologer, I think having a radical analysis of whiteness & a thorough socio-political critique allows me to go places with my clients (especiallly QT/BIPOC ) that the kyriarchy would usually prevent. the personal is political. through a healing justice framework informed by queer radical Black/Indigenous praxis, this means personal healing is collective healing & they happen simultaneously rather than in hyper-individualistic isolation. to clarify, by “go places” I mean explore questions through anti-kyriarchal lens (anti-capitalism, anti-racist, anti-ableist, etc ) which allows for more freedom & possibility. this all happens in collaboration, in mutual learning, & by meeting the querent where they’re at in their political praxis of resistance. this shit (revolution ) takes lifetimes. I will be developing a decolonial astrological pedagogy for the rest of my life. but I already know that healing justice can happen with astrology, too. 🖤
for a long time I rejected hellenistic & traditional astrology because I didn’t really understand it but more-so, having to contend with the questions of fate & free-will scared me. coming from my context of abuse & lack of agency, I refuted anything that seemed to remind me of that powerlessness. I also was running away from how whiteness imposes structure & hyper-intellectualism even as I was running into how whiteness as hyper-individualism informed my spiritual & political praxis. I also recognize where my religious & patriarchal conditioning of false responsibility for other people & everything around me was prohibiting me from accepting that sometimes shit is just shitty. enter concept: it’s not my fault. this doesn’t mean it can’t be composted or transmuted but that possibility also doesn’t change that it just exists as is. the concept of essential dignities (what’s available to a planets needs based on the sign it is in ) is a brilliant example of how accepting nuance & challenges can be generative rather than limiting. it also presences the questions: how do we maintain our dignity while interacting with the ways oppressive constructs sneak into our practices (no matter the school of thought )? how do we integrate ancient wisdom while updating it with decolonial preferences? how do we maintain our dignity while interacting with the complexity of fate & free-will? I think we maintain our dignity by accepting the response-ability to be aware & inquisitive about how we’ve internalized binaries, hierarchies, & supremacies. we maintain our dignity by understanding the origins of schools of thought & letting time talk to us through history. we maintain our dignity by questioning, discerning, & disseminating aged wisdoms. we maintain our dignity through an accountability of care that makes room for growth, truth, & the willingness to learn. we maintain our dignity by choosing to honor lineages & choosing curiosity over control. we maintain our dignity by reclaiming our power, sovereignty, & humility as cultivators and students. I’m joining the discourse w @charmastrology @ddamascenaa @astrologywithcello & many more brilliant #dignitybabes . check comment ↓

Am I in my swimming deep in my own feelings or is it Pisces season?! Be not afraid. Dip into the waters, it's safe here. 💕🌊 Let the waves guide you to inner peace. However you got here, you're here. Embrace it. Embrace yourself. You owe it only to your own self.✨ . . . . . . #pisces #yeg #yegger #queer #latinx #qtpoc #gay #astrology #queerastrology
we need anti-capitalist and anti-ableist frameworks in our horoscopes too! it all matters. I don’t write horoscopes with the aim of encouraging readers towards productivity, “success”, or action. horoscopes are by nature so general that I believe they’re best utilized as tiny guides towards acceptance, affirmation, & micro astro-strategy tips. I want to encourage contemplation, not another measure of comparison for readers to self-judge with.☀️
understanding transits helps me accept the inevitability of change & the potency of my attention shifting from area to area. it’s such a relief from the pressure to remain consistent or well rounded. getting ready for 2020 feels more accessible when it means I’m looking at the luminaries & planets for guidance on where to expect the unexpected, invest my attention, & give it a break. part of this process is also reflecting on how transits this year showed up in expectation vs. reality. I’ll be going live on IG Friday to share my Jupiter in sagittarius journey & what Jupiter in capricorn is already bringing me. we can go through this process (Jupiter reflections or 2020 prep ) with your chart, too. there’s still some space left in December though you can book up to 90 days in the future. there’s an accessibility tier as well. the stars speak, it’s never too late to listen.🔮✨ #imisssummer #sagittariusseason #jupiter #transits #queerastrology #brujx #astrothots
I’ve been drawing these for @sheshredsmag every month and this is my favorite one so far. Some of my favorite people are sags (and also at least 1 enemy... ) I made this babe looking out on an uncertain future - but she ready. . . . . . . #illustration #astrology #sagseason #sagittarius #sagittariusseason #torontoart #torontoartist #queerart #queerartist #queerastrology #tarot

THE GLORY OF THE GROWTH WORK COMES LATER. this shit sounds cool but it’s really fucking tough. giving yourself this kind of love is not easy. it is no longer enough to be aware. we must implement awareness. THE GUARANTEE if you do nothing else but attend to this, you will have made wise moves. if you do nothing but create support structures for the grief of not being able to hold onto what isn’t good for you right now, you will be on time. if you do nothing but detach to remember your agency, you will transform suffering into generative challenge. if you do nothing but reach out to ancestors or intimates when it’s hard & lonely, you will have made spiritual practice. if you do nothing but maintain gentleness for the excruciating pain of choosing growth, you will create powerful outcomes.
