Episode 212: February Astrology Forecast 2024

In this episode, I share the major Aquarius and Pisces stelliums and conjunctions. We have a new moon in Aquarius that also signifies the Lunar New Year. Happy Year of the Dragon! and the full moon in Virgo. I also go through the 12 rising signs and share what the Pluto in Aquarius transit will mean for your life since I forgot to do that in episode 211: Pluto in Aquarius. This month's forecast is shorter not because it's the shortest month, even though this  February, there are 29 days but because I'm super busy thanks to my Aquarius placements. Also, Happy Black History Month!    Show Notes: <a href= "https://www.amazon.com/How-Manifest-Make-Dreams-Reality/dp/1454946415" target="_blank" rel="noopener" data-saferedirecturl= "https:/

Episode 211: Pluto in Aquarius - The Age of Revolution

In this episode, I talk about the transition from Pluto in the sign of Capricorn into the sign of Aquarius. Astrology is the study of cycles and patterns, so the best way for us to predict what might happen when Pluto is in the sign of Aquarius is to look back at what happened the last time in our history when Pluto was in Aquarius. This time was known as the Age of Revolution because concurrent revolutions were happening all over the world. Some of the same themes are appearing today as Pluto moved into Aquarius on January 20th of this year.    Show Notes: <a href= "https://www.amazon.com/How-Manifest-Make-Dreams-Reality/dp/1454

Happy New Year! In this episode, I go through the planetary transits of January 2024. Some major highlights are, Mercury goes direct and Pluto enters the sign of Aquarius. 2024 is going to be a transitional year when all the outer planets, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are finishing up their journeys before moving into new signs in 2025.

Episode 133: June Energies and Retrogrades With Laura Chung

I'm back with another solo episode. I wanted to show up, again, as I recorded this on the first day of June; the halfway point of 2021. In this episode, I wanted to share my intentions with this community and how I want to show up going forward. This last lunar eclipse was a doozy. It really illuminated my limiting beliefs about myself and fears that have been simmering in my subconscious. Doing shadow work and going inward can be a very lonely place. It's not for the faint of heart. This is why it's so important to me to remind you that you're not alone. Going through more difficult times in our lives is divinely orchestrated by our Higher Selves and our Spiritual team - I truly believe we are divinely protected and guided. I go more in-depth about this in the episode so hopefully, you'll meet me there.    In This Episode: I have an announcement!

Episode 45: Laura on How Finding Her Purpose Was From Pain and How the Journey is Messy, Scary and Beautiful

Today's episode is inspired by Elizabeth Gilbert's Super Soul Sunday podcast episode where she talks about finding your purpose. If you haven't found it yet, you can feel like a failure. There's so much pressure to find your purpose. Elizabeth instead offers, to follow your curiosity. I would concur with that advice. I kept doing the things I loved to do e.g. Traveling, photography, connecting with people, creating art, and sharing experiences. Years of not knowing what I was doing and thinking that these experiences were random were not. I can now connect the dots of my past and feel immense gratitude for every experience both beautiful and painful to have shaped me into the person I am today. Each heartbreak and venture off the path has prepared me for my purpose. The journey towards finding your purpose is oftentimes from pain, it's messy, it's really scary but ultimately beautiful.
