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 now Cosmic Power, Published by Quadrille/Hardie Grant 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.

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. And, because I’m an astrologer as well as intuitive I knew this time would be best spent focused on reloading astrology and updating the language and symbolism to be empowering and inclusive. My mission is to drag astrology out of the dark ages, shake off the dust (and 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! Planets, like job titles, colors, or any other thing or concept don’t have a gender. As Dr. Demartini, a recent guest on my podcast noted, no astronomer to date has found the Sun to have a gender or sex expression, no matter how advanced the telescope! 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 has me LIT. My work and LIFE are aimed at enlightenment, liberation, and seeing 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.
