In ZORA. More on Medium.


This week’s tarot spread shows that you don’t need a title to thank the ancestors and make things happen.

Some of us don’t have the passion to lead because we haven’t had the privilege to sit in the presence of a triumphant leader. How can we know how to show up as a role model if we haven’t had a nearby example of it? Plus, we’ve seen the consequences…

Don’t you deserve some peace this weekend?

Hi ZORA fam,

October is in full swing, Mercury retrograde is kicking butt and the changing of the seasons is beautiful to behold. …

No more Merc RX histrionics please. It’s going to be okay.

I am not a Mercury retrograde (RX) doomsayer. So much of the narrative around this thrice annual event is a bit dramatic. When you account for Mercury’s shadow phases, where the events and topics of your specific retrograde start…

The tarot cards say stability and celebration meet desire and joy in your life this week.

Sometimes when I pull the messages for the week ahead multiple cards fly out of the deck, but this time around two cards stuck together, which felt like a sign to read them as a pair. The pair got me giddy just seeing them! Four of staffs and the 10…


Using astrology to understand Doja Cat’s rise in stardom

When Doja Cat released the behind-the-scenes footage for her You Right music video this past summer, she calls her mother to ask for her birth time in order to use the app, The Pattern. What was just cute filler footage for some was a quiet win for the astrological community…


You did hard work over the summer. For fall? Apply the lessons.

Virgo season did what it came to do! It gave us the time to mold these energetic caves for each of us to find safety, solace and a peace of mind as we tuned out the outside world, while getting to to know ourselves a little better. …


This week’s medicine: “True healing begins once we hold ourselves accountable for the power we’ve given others, our fears, or our trauma.”

I’m so tired, family. And I know you are too. Each week there’s a new battle to face and whether it’s impacting us directly or indirectly, we still feel it. And when we focus on all of the negativity around us, peace can start to feel unattainable.

Collectively, we’re facing…


Amber the Alchemist: ‘This week practice radical acceptance’

“Uhambo” (or the Chariot) meaning “the journey” or “traveling forward” in the Xhosa language serves as a wake-up call to zoom past our fears and worries, trusting that we are not only divinely guided but divinely protected. …


Amber the Alchemist says this week’s message is to answer the call. It can feel good to stop putting things off.

When you are struck by the bow of divine inspiration this week, you’re called to hit the pedal and push through! The real magick happens when you are able to feed your desires, and curiosities, through pursuit and stepping out of your comfort zone. Your heart may be swelling with…


Amber the Alchemist reminds us to slow down and take it all in. A full calendar will not enhance our worth.

As new beginnings greet us at our doorstep, we must trust the intense transformation impacting our day-to-day and future. This week’s guidance is a continuation of last week’s message, emphasizing shedding skin and releasing anything that feels burdensome.

Most people are fearful of death because of the uncertainty of what’s…
