“A Masked Figure Performs Ritualistic Acts In A Mystery Play” ~ Sabian Symbol 5º Aquarius ~
Welcome! You belong.
I am Emma the creatrix behind this online space. A meeting place for cosmic mystery; for astrological self-discovery through the lenses of magic, mysticism, and the occult.
Astrology is one of the tools I work with. I am a Capricorn Sun, Taurus Rising, Aries Moon, North Node in Aquarius and Pluto in Scorpio.
My Astrology Journey
Some of my first paintings ever were images of the night sky, stars, and anthropomorphized versions of the Sun and Moon. Deep down a part of me always knew I was being called by Spirit to read the celestial signs of the Zodiac.
Drawn in by astrology and the occult I began my journey as a teenager on a spiritual quest into the zodiac. Obsessed with astrology I structured my worldview around people’s signs and my vision of astrology as a gateway to self-knowledge.
I began formally studying astrology in 2013/4 at the Portland School of Astrology and began synthesizing some of the many branches of astrology into my own intuitive chart interpretation style. I am inspired by Evolutionary Astrologers Jeffrey Wolf Green and Steven Forrest and I love the work of transpersonal astrologer Dane Rudhyar. With my degree in psychology and community mental health, I am very interested in how depth psychology and astrology come together in helping us live better within our bodies and minds.
My astrological approach incorporates knowledge learned in my studies, world travels, time in nature, and my personal experiences with mysticism, paganism, and the weavings of spirit and divinity. I also integrate the many teachings I have learned from my Mentors at the Portland School of Astrology and workshops taken with Mark Jones through the Astrology University in order to create a dynamic approach to understanding the cosmos. Utilizing a mix of traditional and modern astrological techniques, I explore, use, and challenge the symbolic language of the zodiac to help me reach a deep and intuitive level of interpretation.
By looking at the nodal placements in my own chart, the North Node in Aquarius and the South Node in Leo, I have come to sense the waters my soul is treading through. I feel we move between different states of being and time, residing beyond and within the paradox of whatever this existence is; allowing me to remain open, curious, and questioning to cosmologies and the nature of reality, beliefs, and the divine; which is what informs my spiritual practices and experiences. My relationship with divinity and spirit is explored on my art website, Emerald Visions.
I was born with Pluto in Scorpio, a placement I share with other people born during my Pluto generation approximately 1983-1995 (Jupiter & the Pluto in Scorpio Generation). My natal Sun is at 14 degrees Capricorn with mystical Neptune on one side and Saturn, planet of mastery on the other side. I feel these energies relate strongly to my desire to constantly be putting effort towards spiritual exploration, study, and a search for truth.
I am just now making it through the transit of Pluto conjunct my natal sun in Capricorn. I have been experiencing Pluto’s transit through Capricorn since I was 18 and will continue to have Pluto moving over my Capricorn stellium until approximately 2023. Some lessons that have come out of this slow and long evolutionary transit are a deeper relationship with my power and sovereignty, accessing the shadows, and honoring my true form. During this transit I have been brought to some very difficult but ultimately deep places of self discovery and self acceptance.
As my relationship with astrology continues to evolve I use this webspace as a container to write and share my thoughts on mysticism, spirituality, paganism, and psychology in relation to astrology.
This is also an online space where you can contact me for an in-depth, soul focused chart reading or inquire about my writing services…
