Straight away at the top, I want to acknowledge, honor, and refer the people who have taught and guided me the most with my own healing.
Deborah Kremins is an intuitive healer, clairvoyant, and teacher. Through her coursework, I have gained the central tools of intuitive healing and energy work that I now consider essential to my daily life. I have also worked with her many times as her client, and her healing sessions are truly amazing. She lives on Maui, and can work with you over the phone or in person. See her website for more information: http://intuitionmed.com.
Lindsay Mack is an intuitive coach, medium, and Tarot reader. I am so privileged to call her my teacher. Her soul-centered approach to the Tarot has been transformative. Her leadership style is a model for inclusivity, authenticity, and grace. Her podcast is also brilliant and brings so much medicine.
Sarah Faith Gottessdiener is a Tarot reader, graphic designer, and moon guide. She is also my teacher. Her Many Moons Workbook has a cult following, but it feels like it was written just for me. Through her guidance, I have learned to live my life through the spiral, to stop seeing time as linear, by living in intention and in gratitude through each phase of the moon. I stand deep in respect for her work and her words. Instagram: @gottesss.
Achintya Devi is the founder and leader of Goddess Rising Global Sisterhood and Mystery School. Through her 3-month moon cycle sessions, I have learned so much about myself and my connection to Goddess wisdom. She has an incredible channel to Divine and it’s an honor to witness and experience her leadership. http://www.goddessrising.org. Instagram: @goddess_rising.
Caroline Casey's book Visionary Activist Astrology is the central text from which I work in the field of astrology, but her work is about so much more than just astrology. She blends myth, symbolism, linguistics, and playful humor into ruminations on the connections between the stars and our power. I cannot recommend her book and her podcast with more ardent enthusiasm. This woman would definitely be the chief guest at my fantasy dinner party.
Demetra George is one of the most important astrologers out there and I am in deep gratitude for her writings and scholarship. Astrology for Yourself, Asteroid Goddesses, and Astrology and the Authentic Self (the first two co-written with Douglas Bloch) are core texts for me. Other astrologers whose texts I admire are Howard Sasportas, Liz Greene, Swami Kriyananda, and Jan Spiller.
Layla Saad is a great leader in the spiritual sphere of activism and conversation. Her podcast has informed much of my approach to the spiritual world and introduced to me to the work of countless incredible thinkers and healers, many of whom are POC. As a woman, I crave Layla's discussions about power and sovereignty. As a white woman, I turn to Layla to keep my eyes wide open regarding the myriad ways white supremacy suffuses the world of spirituality so that I can do this work in integrity. I fiercely recommend her words. Instagram: @wildmysticwoman.
Chani Nicholas is one of the most innovative astrologers working right now. I regularly subscribe to her monthly transit discussions and new moon rituals. I get a lot out of her meditations, and feel she asks all the right questions for the journaling practice. I align with and honor her point of view grounded in social justice issues, as my own academic background was heavily determined by feminist, queer, and post-colonialist writers and theorists. Instagram: @chaninicholas.
Jessica Snow leads creative, playful, and imaginative meditations. I am a subscriber to her site and regularly work with her material. Many breakthrough 'aha' moments with her guidance. Instagram: @meditation_jess.
Debra Silverman is a wonderful source of information on astrology. She is extremely generous with her knowledge, offering free webinars and YouTube videos all of the time. She offers astrology courses you can take online and has a list of Debra Silverman Certified Astrologers on her website. Instagram: @debrasilverman_astrology
Malika Semper is a wonderful astrologer that I recommend if you are looking for someone to do a reading. She is especially skilled at helping you understand your child's chart. Check out her website here.
Roshan Sylvia does monthly readings for each Sun sign on Youtube. I love her, and always feel her insights turn out to be true. If you want to buy me a gift, please book me a reading with her. Ha!
My favorite source for meditation music: PowerThoughts Meditation Club.
