Aries & The Dragon
In this episode, we explore the archetype of Aries, outlining the Aries propensity for fiery enthusiasm and independence, but going beyond the stereotype of Aries as just a pure ball of energy, as we discuss how Aries may carry a bold yet bruised heart, harbor feelings of being Too Much, and how they may struggle with channeling their energy into outlets that are deemed "acceptable" or "unacceptable" by society, as illustrated in the myth of the Knight and the Dragon.

Pisces: The Season of the Wise Baby
Wise and childlike, insightful and scattered, sensitive to emotions and the energy of the collective. It's not easy to be a Pisces! In this episode, we explore the yearning that Pisces has to be a part of something bigger than themselves, and we chat about how "selflessness" is a thoroughly neutral trait that manifests in ways both bad and good. 🔗 mentioned in the episode--a video by narcissism expert and clinical psychologist Dr. Ramani on "communal narcissists," aka philanthropic narcissists: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aF8fiHTbGtY 🎧 side note: please forgive the audio quality on this one--since it was channeled live and I didn't want to interrupt the flow of it, I plowed through even with the usual Los Angeles background noise throughout, and editing that out left the vocals a lil bit warped 🌊

Aquarius Season: Know the System to Fight the System
Eccentric genius, mad scientist, free spirit, rebel. Is that what Aquarius actually is? Not so fast. This futuristic air sign also ruled by Saturn, planet of rules, restrictions, and convention—there’s more to Aquarius than horoscopes and memes may have you think. In this episode, we explore both the water bearer’s traditional ruler (Saturn) and modern ruler (Uranus), two planets which have clashed in the sky for the past year or more, and whose energies combine in interesting ways to forge the complex archetype of Aquarius.

Ever wonder why the end of the year is a time of joy and excess as well as guilt and future-focused planning? Well, there’s an astrological explanation for it! In this episode, which is the first to feature live channeling rather than a scripted format, we explore the archetype of Capricorn—both its shadow and its highest expression—and the ways in which Capricornian themes color our understanding of how we should properly end and begin a new year.

Sagittarius Season: Colonizers, Gratitude, and the Spirituality of Consumerism
Welcome to Sagittarius season! This is a time of holiday shopping and celebrating historic genocide. Sorry, Sag listeners—we get real serious, real fast, in this episode. We think you can take it! After all, you’re the sign of expansion, learning, and growth. It’s time we all broaden the horizons of the Sagittarius archetype, one brutally honest theme at a time. 🔗 note: In the episode, I mention that I’m gonna put a link here in the show notes for a blog post I wrote on Jupiter, but I believe that that post got lost in the shuffle recently as I moved my website from one platform to another 😔 RIP
