10. A Course in Miracles & Divine Assignments with Colin Bedell

Ep. 10

I spoke with Colin Bedell of QueerCosmos about A Course in Miracles and navigating divine assignments and soul connections. Colin is a horoscope writer at Cosmopolitan magazine and has a recently published book called A Little Bit of Astrology: An Introduction to the Zodiac as well as a forthcoming book called Queer Cosmos: The Astrology of Queer Identities and Relationships. Colin was a speaker at the 2017 Sister Giant in Washington D.C and at a recent online summit called Fresh Voices in Astrology. Besides being an astrologer, Colin works intimately with A Course in Miracles, and I invited him on the show to learn more about miracles and how we can develop a deeper connection to them. We talked about A Course in Miracles, and of course, astrology!

As promised, the review I wrote about A Little Bit of Astrology!


"I am stunned and proud of Colin Bedell's lyric reverie in his new book, A Little Bit of Astrology: An Introduction to the Zodiac. As I read through the pages of his book, I felt taken on an aesthetic journey where facets of reality were named and brightened - the personality and essences all around me. It felt like learning astrology again to read his writing and I got this feeling that I was going to be distinctly reanimated with astrology from these moments forward - the way I felt when I first began learning and started to see archetypes living in people and the world. It is the remarkably vibrant way that reality itself begins to take on more complex textures; brightens — and as though the soul of the cosmos becomes aware its finer details are being observed and it begins to reveal more of its beauty to the one whose vision courts it. I think that is one of astrology’s secrets that keeps me coming back to it every day - when approached as though a lover endlessly full of mysteries the study of astrology doesn’t reduce or put things into categories but rather opens up complex and novel forms of poetic understanding. Colin did this. His language is light and fluid and sparkling but the realities he points to are solid and robust. Reading him, my world became brighter.


Not only did I get to become absorbed in the lyric beauty of Colin’s writing but I got to fall in love with the zodiac all over again through Colin’s vision. Each description contains clues into how to love people of those signs and I saw my own reality beginning to become more illuminated with appreciation because little beautiful details of the people in my life bloomed forward in my consciousness. I think Colin opens universes of love in his vision of astrology - he creates invitations to love more, after having carefully considered the unique realities of the archetypes and what they stand for. I have adored Colin’s use of language since the first time (literally) I heard him speak, and reading his book deepened my knowing that Colin’s words playfully transform and uplift the realities he engages with. I feel inspired and grateful that this compassionate magician is among us. 🌞


As someone who began learning astrology in the astrology section at Barnes and Noble my heart delights in knowing that Colin is now a guide for many astrological initiates, imbuing new generations of readers with the radiant solar light of these archetypes. Colin, you truly make my heart expand! Thank you for your beautiful words which are portals into an enhanced and loving relationship to life & and for shining as brightly and generously as you do.


Obviously I recommend his new book! ❤ Do yourself and your friends who don't know astrology yet a favor and get a copy!"

63. The Pluto in Scorpio Generation & Social Change with Jaliessa Sipress

Ep. 63
I had astrologer Jaliessa Sipress on to discuss the Pluto in Scorpio generation and this generation’s relationship with social change. You’ll need to look up any given natal chart to be sure of where Pluto is, but the Pluto in Scorpio generation is born roughly between 1983 - 1995. We discussed some major themes of this generation, how this generation influences the social fabric, and how this generation (and other generations) are involved with the current racial justice movement.Jaliessa Sipress is an Astrologer, writer and artist committed to expanding people's minds and helping them love themselves and their lives more. She uses Astrology as a catalyst to talk about broader spiritual topics, love and relationships, manifestation, and more. You can find out more about her and her work at jaliessasipress.com.I’ve left every conversation with Jaliessa palpably with more knowledge and insight. I took her course that she produced with Collin Bedell - her Love and Relationships course - and got so much out of it. Jaliessa brings a luminescent depth toward the topics she explores and I’m so glad to have had her on the show. Jaliessa also has a podcast called Fun But Heavy that I’d suggest checking out!Connect with Jaliessa on IG: @jaliessasipressSupport the Kickstarter to fund the year ahead of astrology forecasts and Magic of the Spheres podcast episodes!✨🎓✨Learn more about the Online Presence as Performance Art Course.✨🎓✨Learn more about the Evolutionary Astrology Intensive.✨🔮✨ Visit my website and read the astrology forecasts:http://www.monarchastrology.com✨💌✨ Sign up for my mailing list:http://eepurl.com/b2U6bP✨🖥✨ Watch the astrology forecasts on YouTube:http://www.youtube.com/c/sabrinamonarch✨🔮✨ Book an evolutionary astrology reading with me:https://monarchastrology.com/product/astrology-reading-2/IG: @sabrinamonarchTwitter: @Sabrina_monarchMusic by Danny Lampton ofThe Light & The Weight

62. Performance, Magic & Charisma with Nate Speare

Ep. 62
I had a fascinating conversation with fellow astrologer Nate Speare about performance, and performance’s connections to psychological/emotional range, magic, and charisma. I wanted to talk to Nate because when I see his astrology updates on social media, they are transmission-like, where he uses different sounds, and voices, and theatric elements essentially, to convey the feeling tone of the transits he is describing. I felt that there was probably something really interesting and thoughtful behind that process and how he developed that theatric vocabulary, and I wasn’t wrong :)Nate Speare is an astrologer, vocal artist, storyteller, mythologist, and educator. He comes from a line of astrologers and sound/music composers who used natural environmental sounds and the connection between sound, the natural environment, and the characters within the earth and sky. He offers consulting sessions, writes essays, tells stories and uses his voice in videos and live performance as an active representative of the world to re-ignite a sense of magic in every client. It is his aim to connect each person to the idea that they are not blank slates, but that they entered the world with their own "daimon" and irreplaceable style of talented genius with inspiring and definite directions in life. As an astrologer, Nate has studied under Jungian psychological and evolutionary astrologer Montgomery Taylor, and is influenced by Archetypal, Shamanic and Renaissance schools of astrology. Nate directs Mythopoetic Astrology, a consulting practice that integrates experiential therapy of astrology through Astro-Drama, voice, sonic art and client consulting. His teaching credits include Salem Summer Symposium (Massachusetts) Myth and Theatre Festival (France), and Jung Institute NYC. Nate is a collaborator of PanTheatre, the France-based cultural organization that researches the relationship between contemporary performance, mythology, and the archetypal psychology of James Hillman, the company's Honorary President. He lives and works in Brooklyn, NY, where he is also the co-artistic director of Nekyia Theatre.Find Nate onIG: mythopoetic_astrologyhttp://www.mythopoeticastrology.comFB: Mythopoetic Astrology Primordials, Nate Speare, Mythopoetic AstrologyTwitter:https://mobile.twitter.com/SpeareNateSupport the Kickstarter to fund the year ahead of astrology forecasts and Magic of the Spheres podcast episodes!✨🎓✨Learn more about the Online Presence as Performance Art Course.✨🎓✨Learn more about the Evolutionary Astrology Intensive.✨🔮✨ Visit my website and read the astrology forecasts:http://www.monarchastrology.com✨💌✨ Sign up for my mailing list:http://eepurl.com/b2U6bP✨🖥✨ Watch the astrology forecasts on YouTube:http://www.youtube.com/c/sabrinamonarch✨🔮✨ Book an evolutionary astrology reading with me:https://monarchastrology.com/product/astrology-reading-2/IG: @sabrinamonarchTwitter: @Sabrina_monarchMusic by Danny Lampton ofThe Light & The Weight
