The extended version;
Currently, I’m the resident Astrologer at Glamour U.S with a weekly horoscope (since mid-2019), recently launched a horoscope column for News.com.au (May 2021), 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, and more.
Tune into The Astro All-Starz Podcast and The Cosmic Eye Monthly forecast for the Astrology University podcast + Check my blog or Instagram for updates and sign up for my newsletter to keep up with the Cosmos. Over the last few years, I’ve been honored to present at astrology summits and conferences. I miss IRL group astro geeking but love connecting across the globe even if it’s virtual for now.
I’m proud to say my books Star Power, and now Cosmic power have found their place across the world and given me FOMO as they’ve traveled further than me! 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.
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 multi-passionate-multi-hyphenated and love casting my net wide then connecting the dots. I also have mystical Neptune conjunct my Sag Sun & Mars in Pisces, so tend to identify as a creative person who’s been obsessed with the numinous my entire life. When not astrologizing I can be found doing yoga, listening to my inner voice, and dreaming up new creative ideas to help save the world and contribute to raising consciousness.
I authored the books Star Power and Cosmic Power, teach, write, and counsel clients, because astrology, eastern philosophies, and change strategies have helped me so much in my own personal evolution. And immeasurably in understanding, appreciating, and accepting others+dropping the judgment!
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. Since we are grounded by 2020/1! 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 while celebrating difference. It’s high time for a re-brand Starlings, lets do this together.
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 stereotypes. The current wave of women rising, power shifting, fluidity, and transcending binary roles based on duality/polarity 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.
