As an astrology fanatic myself, I’ve been dying to bring you an episode where creativity and meets the stars. In this episode, astrologer, writer and artist, Emmalea Russo, shares how she sees astrology as an art in and of itself. We also discuss how she approaches astrology through a lens of divination, and the areas of the birth chart that are particularly ripe with creative fodder (my favorite!). I’m hoping this conversation can serve as inspiration for your explorations--there’s tons to jump off of here!

-- Emmalea's journey to astrology
-- Ancient astrology vs Modern astrology
