s5 ep3: Surviving Venus Retrograde Season

Greetings friends! I’m so excited to share this week’s episode, a sneak peek of what we’re working on for our new Healers community coming later this year. One of the very exciting perks of joining us will be exclusive astrowellness insights from our resident astrologer Stephanie Gailing. You might remember her from the very first episode of this show when she predicted the rollercoaster ride we’d be in for in 2017. So glad that’s over! Today I’m handing over the mic to Stephanie to help us navigate Venus Retrograde season, a six-week journey which is in effect through November 16. Venus only goes retro every 18 months so she’s won’t be leaving any of us alone! What I love about Stephanie is that she has a gift for helping us work WITH the energies of the Universe and find opportunities in the shifting tides instead of dreading them.

Powerful Dates

Oct 5 – Venus goes retrograde

Oct 8 – New Moon

Oct 10 – Focus on dreams and any insights (ask for guidance the night before to better understand how to craft my life with more beauty and value.)

Oct 10 – Venus and Mars square, creating tension between your inner and outer worlds. Re-evaluate what fuels and lights you up.

Oct 15 – Mercury the planet of communication aligns with Venus, helping you find the words to better express yourself.

Oct 24 – Full Moon

Nov 16 – Mercury goes retrograde

Flower Essences for Venus Retro
Holly – to cope with jealousy, anger, shame
Basil – to connect to with your sexuality and release any shame
Scarlet Monkeyflower – to help express feelings that you may be avoiding

s5 ep2: Bri Seely on Taking Leaps & Living Your Truth

Bri Seeley helps people unapologetically live their truth. And live their soul’s path. The life coach, author and hypnotherapist is here to help us to align our inner world with our outer world. Because when our reality doesn’t match our soul’s path, we get stuck. With depression, anger, or the sneakiest of them all: autopilot. When I sat down with Bri she was unpacking 20 years of grief from her father’s suicide. Only then was she to give herself permission to leap into her next chapter. After this inspiring episode you’ll want to do the same.

Fall Sale Finds from Shopbop!

My mind might still be in summer mode but my closet is begging for a fall upgrade. Nothing crazy, but a few key statement pieces that I can wear again and again are definitely in order. Shopbop always inspires, especially when it’s stock-up sale time! Now through September 29, take 20% off orders under $500 and 25% off orders of $500 or more. Use code STOCKUP18 at checkout! A few finds I have my eye on:

Never have I felt more compelled to get out the vote. It’s our greatest Amercian privilege and responsibility no matter who you cast yours for. I love the optimistic palette of this Tory Burch Vote Tee ($68), which I’d pull together with a blazer. See you November 6!

I’m so digging the proportions and contrast here, such perfect way to transition seasons! Shop your closet for a midi or maxi summer skirt and pair it with one of Shopbop’s chunky sweaters, like here, here and here.

Speaking of chunky, how about this rich orange Tibi track jacket ($395)? Pretty sure I would wear this coat nonstop and not care what was underneath it. How great is the length too?

Isabel Marant Etoils is new to Shopbop this season and I predict we’re going to be seeing her eponymous pullovers and track pants with the fashion set. I’m not big on designer labels, but it’s one comfy way to have a touch of Parisian glamour in your wardrobe!

Bring on the jewel tones! Living in NYC, there’s only so much black I can wear before it starts affecting my M O O D. You’d have this Paul Smith fitted trousers ($295) and blazer ($595) in fuschia forever.

S5 ep1: Mimi Young of Ceremonie

Mimi Young is a witch. Then again, according to her, most of us have cast a spell or two in our lives without even realizing it. Mimi is also a mother, a shaman and plant spirit medicine practitioner who’s here to help you embrace your inner jezebel. That divine feminine within that you’ve hidden away or forgotten. Because when you do, the real you will step forward.
