The extended version;
Currently, I’m the resident Astrologer at Glamour U.S with a weekly horoscope (since mid-2019), launched a horoscope column for News.com.au, former resident astrologer for Whimn Magazine (which closed in June, you can find some of those articles housed in Body+Soul Magazine) – and have been featured in Vogue U.S, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Time Out London, Refinery29, Vice Broadly, The Fashion Journal, Traveller (Easy Jet inflight Magazine), The Kit C.A, Bloom Mag and more.
I’m proud to say my books Star Power and nowCosmic Power, Published by Quadrille, have generated over a million dollars in sales internationally. They’ve been sold by Art Museums like the Guggenheim N.Y, MoMA London – And by stores from boutiques to Anthropologie to Urban Outfitters and more. I’m currently working through the editing process with my Publisher on the third addition to the Power series. Illustrations by Giulia Garbin are looking gorgeous. Stay tuned for the big reveal.

Over the last few years, I’ve been honored to present at astrology summits, conferences, and meetups IRL and online.
My formal studies include Astrology, Graphic design, Fashion & Textile Design Hons, Creative & Script Writing, Transpersonal Counselling, and various effective yet gentle psychotherapist. With five planets in Sagittarius, I’m a multi-passionate-multi-hyphen lover of casting the net wide and then connecting the dots. With mystical Neptune conjunct my Sag Sun & Mars in psychic Pisces, I identify as a creative person who’s been obsessed with the numinous my entire life. When not stargazing, I can be found researching, reading, doing yoga, listening to my inner voice, and raising consciousness.
I teach, write, podcast, and counsel clients, to pass on the gifts of astrology, eastern philosophies, and change strategies that have helped me so much in my own personal evolution and immeasurably in understanding, appreciating, and accepting both myself and others.
Australian by birth, gypset by nature, I LOVE traveling: the 3rd eye-opening experiences & inspiring people met when I’m out of daily routines are essential to growth and life! Currently living by the beach in Burleigh, Queensland, known as the Sunshine State, I’ve been getting into the ocean to stay grounded.
Empowering astrology starts here. My mission is to drag astrology out of the dark ages, shake off the misogyny, deepen and rebrand for the modern mystic.
To say I have a feminist agenda would be an understatement. Let’s ditch the gender bias/gender roles and language in astrology and life already – or mix them up because representation is everything! Most people have to see it to be it or to recognize quality or trait, like the image you see when you think of a professor, beauty blogger, boss, or caretaker. Planets, like job titles, colors, or any other thing or concept, don’t have a gender. So let’s get creative rather than roll out and perpetuate tired old sexist stereotypes. The current wave of women rising, power shifting, fluidity, and transcending binary roles based on gender constructs have me LIT. My work and LIFE are aimed at enlightenment, liberation, and moving past labels that separate to the oneness that unites us all.
We all have a Sun in our birth chart, the central Queen or Monarch, a lifeforce we’re gifted with, so we must all own our shine and glow our own way. We’re all a unique blend of interests and strengths. I’m passionate about opening up your innate gifts and getting you into alignment so you can run your world to match your vision. Who runs your world?…(*hint*YOU)!
Let’s get to it.
