THE WHOLE STORY
My astrological practice was born out of pure curiosity for my birth chart. My skill in graphic design and aesthetic in general, finds its genesis in a pure love for making things look good. I have always known that I was Sagittarius Sun but it wasn't until I saw my birth chart for the first time that I realized there was way more to astrology than just zodiac signs. I was always into creative expression across various mediums but it wasn’t until astrology that I found an outlet and container for me to explore my creativity. After learning about the nuances of my birth chart, I was completely overtaken by this new and interesting study that I thought I already knew so much about. After finally teaching myself photoshop, making content for Instagram, and learning about “social media marketing strategy” I realized I found another true love - graphic design and social media marketing.
I started to seek more knowledge from every source I could get my hands on. I listened to podcasts and followed astrologers on social media. Learning from Kirah Tabourn, Kelly Surtees, Austin Coppock, and Chris Brennan and the Astrology Podcast, I started to understand the power of this special kind of knowledge.
In January 2020, after years of private study, I announced to my online community that I would be offering free birth-chart readings. As a child of Windows 95 and Al Gore’s internet, it was intuitive for me to introduce my work on my various social platforms. I taught myself graphic design and committed to creating astrological content. It was through Tumblr, Twitter, and Instagram that I was able to freely explore my interests in art, social justice, and the occult without the fear of judgment from people I knew in my physical communities. The internet has opened the door for me to feel comfortable and confident in my authenticity and it’s never been more important for me to share my journey to inspire others in my digital sphere.
When I am not practicing astrology and creating content for the world wide web, I'm surfing the internet for inspiration for new creative projects, wandering through my neighborhood with my film camera, or binge watching Naruto or the Office. Recently, I have gotten back into knitting!
