I’ve been an astrology student since I was a child. My Abuela taught me the basics of astrology at the age of eleven: sign keywords, archetypes and how to read a natal chart. My astrology practice comes out of this familial tradition, as well as a belief in its practicality as a tool for emotional growth and nourishment.
I am committed to uncovering the ways astrological ideas can be used to reinforce oppression through misogyny, heterosexism, cissexism, Eurocentricism, ableism, and capitalist ideas of success. Astrology doesn’t have to be governed by stereotypes — it can open up the question of who we are instead of closing it down. Natal charts can help us understand the fluidity and contradictions within us. Astrology can help us embrace uncertainty and complexity with courage. I aim to help people come to their own understandings of who they are in their context.
I would like to acknowledge that I am on the lands of the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora Nation in the settler colonial city of Sydney, and acknowledge the many traditional custodians of the lands comprising what is known as Australia who are suffering a continual violent dispossession. Sovereignty has never been ceded. I pay my respects to elders past and present.
