What is Earth Inspired Astrology?

Great Question! Here is the down-low + the high vibes!vintage-zodiac-constellation-of-northen-stars_fk0Vm9___L

Astrology is a study of the cosmos from the perspective of earth, used as a map to guide us through our earth bound human experiences.  Astrology is a vast sea of interpersonal knowledge + exploration. The study has transformed with humanity – yet it has always been a study of cosmic patterns in relationship with human behavior patterns. Just to give you a clear understanding of how old this practice is,  the Babylonians developed their form of horoscopes around 2,400 years ago! Today there are multiple ways of extracting + integrating the cosmic patterning into our daily lives, and there is so much information to be extracted. Techniques range from studied historical practices, multiple cultural interpretations, new developments + discoveries of patterning found within our relationship to the cosmos, and my personal favorite a deep respect for ‘gnosis’- a knowledge + reverence for spiritual mysteries. Astrology has stood the test of time and when used with respect + from a well-informed space it can be one of the most  transformational tools illuminating personalized direction for healing + self-awareness.

I believe that at its core, astrology has withstood the test of time because it has honored and recognized the depth of the evolutionary process of consciousness and diverse cultural perspectives. The study of astrology is the study of our most intimate personal and collective psyches; it is a space holder for archetypes that will prevail for as long as humanity exists.

Astrology can be used as a powerful and fun way to assist us in understanding earths patterning, others and ourselves from a more holistic perspective. As a society, we use many different tools and languages to understand the world around us. Physiological pathways such as Freud’s inkblots, play therapy, brain spotting, or psychoactive drug therapy treatments all give us a variable array of insights to our inner workings. Similarly, astrology gives us a lens into our human character; allowing us a language for communicating our celestial and earthly observations.

Just as the moon affects the tides in the ocean, it too has an impact on our environment and affects us. I strive for balance while practicing astrology; I do not take astrology on as dogma but as a blend of philosophical and archetypal methodologies. I strive to use astrology as an anthropologist uses ethnography; as a way to communicate a world removed from the old patterns + stories we all have created. My ambition is to channel my knowledge and insights to assist you in understanding yourself and your loved ones on a deeper soulful space of acceptance in order to generate high vibe soul growth.

Astrology illuminates the theory- as above, so below and allows one to learn of the world without deep attachment to an outcome. Using ones birth chart + the current transits to understand life patterns, you are able to be an observer of your life, just as you are an observer of weather patterns in the world. I encourage everyone to see astrology as a tool to understand patterns of the internal world; and as a guiding force allowing you to have tangible understandings of what vibrational awareness is available to you. Once the awareness has become illuminated I am then able to share with you practical skills unique to you + your chart that you can use in your daily life to cultivate healthy + high vibrational patterning.

Warmth-

Episode 2: Living a Bohemian Life Externally and Internally

A bohemian lifestyle is about living how you feel with radical self love both internally an externally.

One reason we knew we made a good team for this podcast is because Ashley really focuses on external self love (styling your life with a look better, feel better mentality) while Ash has the internal (using cosmic tools, intuition and the energy flow around you) on lock. So we hope bringing you expertise on both halfs is helpful. Episode two dives into both sides, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

A few things we cover on episode two…

Styling Your Life: Dress Better, Feel Better

Growing up, I remember

  • The majority of women, or 96%, “believed that what they wear affects how confident they feel,” according to
  • the news release. – GoodTherapy.org
  • • “The strong link between clothing and mood state suggests we should put on clothes that we associate with
  • happiness, even when feeling low,” according to the news release. – GoodTherapy.org
  • • Professor Pine said: “This finding shows that clothing doesn’t just influence others, it reflects and influences
  • the wearer’s mood too. Many of the women in this study felt they could alter their mood by changing what
  • they wore. This demonstrates the psychological power of clothing and how the right choices could influence
  • a person’s happiness.“ – Science Daily
  • • A report published in Qualitative Research In Psychology in 2008 found even just thinking of certain items
  • from their wardrobe gave individuals a boost in confidence. – Body and Soul
  • • fMRI neuro-imagery shows that when evaluating brands, consumers primarily use emotions (personal
  • feelings and experiences) rather than information (brand attributes, features, and facts). – Psychology Today

Our Bohemian Manifeto

  • Live and Love Hard, everyday
  • Embrace the cosmos
  • Express Yourself. Find your style, then dress how you feel, decorate how you feel, write how you feel, paint how your feel and live how you feel
  • All aspects of your life are an expression of your artistic self – from the clothes you put on your body to the decor in your home, to your daily rituals to your job – don’t mold to the norm, instead blaze your own path
  • Support local makers and shakers – we all have to participate in and encourage one anothers bohemian lives to keep them going
  • Overall, know this – as Laren Stover said in her book Bohemian Manifesto “Giving up security takes guts” and to be a bohemian you must “wrestle with self doubt, take risks, revolutionize, dismantle and shock, endure criticism and rejection”
