As this podcast goes to air, we are moving through the last of the  eclipse portal and integrating the energies. The light of the moon is growing as we move into a powerful Full Moon in Scorpio next week.

There has been a lot of shifting that will lead to growth.  Many have felt unsettled with lots of emotional energy coming forward.  It is a time to slow down, not rush through this. Notice what feels uncomfortable and find ways to shine light on the darkness.  It can feel vulnerable and lonely, but remember; you are never alone. You are always connected to source, your guides and higher self to help find the answers.

If you need help understanding how to connect to your higher self or even create a spiritual practice, my private mentoring Empowered Spirit Program has a few openings for Spring.  It’s a program where I help you re-pattern and learn tools and techniques to break free and create a new path to empower your body, mind, emotions, and Spirit. Schedule a Spiritual Makeover Breakthrough Call\ with me and let’s see what the #1 thing is that you can do to break these old patterns. Click here to schedule.

On today’s episode, we explore the idea of shadows and shadow work with my guest, Maja D’Aoust, with her latest book, Astrology of the Shadow Self – Working with Oppositions in Your Natal Chart. In this episode we talk about astrology, shadows and what they are, natal charts, the Dark Light Mother, Black Madonna, looking at both the shadow and the light and how important it is to get the complete picture to expand our consciousness.

Maja D’Aoust is a professional astrologer with more than 20 years’ experience integrating her master’s degree in transformational psychology into the interpretation of thousands of natal charts. A practicing Witch and scholar of alchemy and occult lore, she is the author of Familiars in WitchcraftThe Occult I Ching, and A Witch’s Bestiary, coauthor of The Secret Source, and creator of a Tarot deck, The White Witch Tarot.

The shadow self was recognized in ancient teachings as an inseparable part of the human being, a vital portion of who we are. In this practical guide to shadow astrology, Maja D’Aoust explains how to determine the shadow polarities of your natal chart and explore the hidden wisdom and challenges of the oppositional identity within. 

Dark – Divine Feminine:

  • Kali
  • Dark Witch Mother
  • Black Modona
  • Dark matter
  • The womb

Use your natal chart to create an Inverted chart, an oppositional chart that allows you to see the shadows.

Shadows have to get projected. Every planet casts a shadow in real-life. Earth Shadow – every night – creates energy. 

Sit with the discomfort.  Breathe.  Expand and have insights.

It’s not that bad. You are still good. We are still ok. 😍

We need shadow work.  Allow it to be a tool for your growth.

Thanks again for listening.

To your Spirit,
