    Episode 219: July Astrology Forecast 2024

    First and foremost, I want to thank all of you for listening and for writing a review. In this episode, I re-introduce myself and explain how I use astrology as a liberatory tool. I believe we are in a critical time right now when we all collectively feel a sense of urgency to know who we are and be in alignment with our purpose. I hope to be your monthly guide to the cosmos and translator of the stars. We begin this episode by recapping June and Gemini Season. We then do a little forecasting for the month of July continuing with Cancer Season, Saturn + Neptune Retrogrades in Pisces, the 2nd full moon in Capricorn, and Leo Season! I'm an astrologer who comes from an anti-oppression and decolonial lens so if politics and world events is not your thing I would find another astrologer who is more aligned. I'm really excited to bring in fixed stars into the monthly forecasts. Happy solar return to the Cancer and Leo babies!

    Episode 218: Astrological Midlife Transits - Crisis and Transformation With Dr Nicole Truesdell

    Are you going through a midlife crisis or are you going through your astrological middle-age transits? This episode is in collaboration with Dr Nicole Truesdell, the host of the Abolitionist Dreamscapes podcast. We share our experiences of these midlife transits as two 40 something women of color going through the thick of it. Your midlife years (36-45) can be some of the most triggering yet transformational times of your life if you surrender to the journey. During these midlife years, the outer planets which are generational planets, activate you to look deeper into yourself and to break free of the status quo. This begs the question, is it only the youth that will save us or awakened mid-lifers as well?

    Episode 216: May Astrology Forecast 2024
    In this episode, we recap the news stories that happened during April including my personal story of the April 8th eclipse. I went on a road trip to the path of totality! May is a month of integration after a month that had many conjunctions like the Jupiter + Uranus and Mars + Saturn. These cycles were simultaneous endings and the beginnings of new cycles. The biggest event happening this month is Jupiter entering the sign of Gemini and we have two sweet lunations. Happy solar return to the Taurus and Gemini babies!    Show Notes: Connect with Awaken and Align:

She is a filmmaker, producer, and writer and is currently working on bringing greater awareness of the Palestinian genocide to Western audiences. Born and raised in New York, Naley studied media and journalism at Iona College. With the rise in social media, Naley was drawn to all the perspectives traditional media fails to report on.

    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: Connect with Awaken and Align:

    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: Connect with Awaken and Align:

    Episode 209: January Astrology Forecast 2024
    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. Since the outer planets are collective, this is a shift in our collective consciousness. The North Node will still be in Aries, which signifies that the change begins with yourself. I hope you have a healthy, happy, and prosperous new year!    Full Show Notes: Connect with Awaken and Align:
