    70. Divorce as Initiation with Trauma-Informed Life Coach Molly Blue Wilder

    70. Divorce as Initiation with Trauma-Informed Life Coach Molly Blue Wilder

    Divorce is an initiation. And like all initiations, it's a death. Death brings life. Life brings death. The only sure thing is change. And divorce helps us live this truth in ways that are sometimes harrowing, often wondrous, always alive.

    Divorce is utterly thorough in its initiatory invitations. There are no parts of us that aren't asked to shift. I know this. And Molly Blue Wilder knows it. 

    Molly's bio: 28 years and 7 kids into marriage, the family-centered life I meticulously crafted fell apart at the seams.Even though it was high time, the upheaval of divorce exposed my deepest attachment wounds. Disoriented; overwhelmed; reeling with grief, uncertainty and fear, I gradually learned to hold onto myself in each moment as it unfolded, rather than getting sucked into the painful vortex of the past or the anxiety of an unknown future. Applying the salve of practical skills, somatic awareness and powerful shifts in thinking, I lovingly attended to my healing process, allowing innate power and intuition to deeply root the growth of my new family structure and relationships. Today, as a somatic and trauma informed life coach, I’m a bridge of resources and support for those on a similar hero’s journey, facing the deepest wounds for the sake of wild self-reclamation, freedom, and powerful life creation.

    I wish I had had someone like Molly to support me through my own initiation. (As I joke in the intro, astrology was my divorce recovery coach lol.)

    In this beautiful conversation we discuss: 


    breaking up with the "good girl" archetype
    the outrageousness of our cultural celebration of "selflessness" 
    not only healing shame for the "bad decisions" of our younger self but actually falling in love with their wisdom and intelligence
    the importance of individuation and differentiation in secure attachments
    releasing our children from the ego's desire to be needed (LOADS of Mom wisdom in this conversation)
    healing by letting ourselves be whatever we previously thought was off-limits for us
    how, as space holders, healing our own trauma is the most loving thing we can do for our clients

    Molly and I share how we met in one of somatic healer Luis Mojica's small group spaces for space holders who have clients working with trauma. You may be interested in checking out my conversation with Luis on his podcast here and on Moon to Moon here.

    69. This Is Who I Am Now: Emerging as a Mystic with Rebecca Padgett

    69. This Is Who I Am Now: Emerging as a Mystic with Rebecca Padgett

    Oh what a joy to be with Rebecca Padgett. This episode is a tale of 2 emergences: Rebecca's emergence as a beautiful, deeply connected astrologer and then her emergence as a full-blown psychic and seer. This episode is publishing on her solar return: Happy Birthday, Rebecca!

    Stay until the end though the outro! I share some personal things that yielded some yummy words for you. 

    Rebecca's bio: I am Rebecca Padgett - a tarot reader, astrologer, visual artist, and dedicated student of divinatory and intuitive practices. My attraction to all things mystical began in childhood. From a young age, I felt a connection to something more than what I could see and feel in this physical world. As my intuition developed, so did my sensitivity to the energy of others here and on the “other side.” Inspired by my family lineage, I undertook an intensive period of study with a variety of internationally renowned teachers, astrologers, and tarot readers to clarify my own experiences, find my voice, and refine my ability to share my intuition with others. I take great pride in being able to reflect that knowledge to each person who comes to me seeking answers and guidance.

    Book a reading with Rebecca and follow her on Instagram.

    68. I Am the Mother and the Child: Virgo Wisdom in My Field

    68. I Am the Mother and the Child: Virgo Wisdom in My Field

    Sharing some Big Virgo Wisdom coming through lately in my court and it feels so yummy to share this with you here in the Moon to Moon space. 

    This phrasing for Virgo from Esoteric Astrology feels like such a rich zone for listening and healing alchemy right now. What does it mean to be both the "mother" and vessel shaper of ourselves, of our lives? What does it mean to also be the child of ourselves, of our lives? This is not an easeful zone for contemplation because most of us have such activation when it comes to what we've been served from systemically unskillful Virgo energy. Many of us have been on the receiving end of harsh Virgo - especially to ourselves! 

    This is the zone of the Inner Critic so I understand that caregiving here is frightening to consider. 

    I feel that right now we're being asked to release how we're thinking about something that's going on in our lives. And I offer this Mother / Child medicine of Virgo as a way in. 

    Virgo invites us to attune to what's up. To learn from it. To adapt based on this new information. And then to refine as you go. 

    Attune - Learn - Adapt - Refine... This is Virgo. 

    This isn't always easeful for those of us afraid to really show up, unsure how we feel about inhabiting a body here on the planet, afraid we'll do it wrong if we try, worried we can't trust ourselves to show up the way we might want to, convinced it's easier to just not have a refining process or a practice. 

    My invitation is to gently start where you are and sit with what comes up to be witnessed and released as you listen here and live with what lands. 

    In the episode, I also offer this tarot spread for you. It's 6 cards in a pyramid shape: 

    TOP

    1 card: What is the situation? This refers to whatever part of your life where you sense you're learning the most because you're being challenged to learn and adapt: a relationship, some aspect of your work, a way you're approaching something. 

    MIDDLE

    2 cards: Left: How am I the mother of this situation? Right: How am I the child? 

    BOTTOM

    3 cards: Left: What does Mercury want me to remember? Middle: What does Mercury want me to release? Right: What else do I need to know? 

    Enjoy! Let me know how it goes. Tag me if you share! 

    For sure the "situation" in my field right now is learning how to be the co-mother and the child of Astrology as Praxis. It's expanding and challenging who I think I am in radical, unforeseen ways.

    My collaborator Jonathan Koe and I are still talking with folks interested in joining. Our curriculum explores various portals to approaching and integrating astrology into our lives - as a practice for unlocking creativity, questioning consensus reality, and remembering our participation in the cosmic body. You will be transformed at a cellular level. We begin our journey on Sep 10, 2022. 

    If you have been resonating with Astrology as Praxis, then you're likely meant to be with us. Please don't let financial concerns be the only barrier. Reach out to me at britten@brittenlarue.com and let's work it out.

    This is shaping up to be a cohort of such clear and bright resonance. It's too big an investment for anyone to sign up who only kind of wants it! If you feel called to our work, then you're going to find so many friends and colleagues in this space who resonate with you at profound spiritual, intellectual, and emotional levels. These are your covert teachers, coaches, and cheerleaders!

    67. Nicole France-Coe: Portal-Jumper, Shape-Shifter, & Mother

    67. Nicole France-Coe: Portal-Jumper, Shape-Shifter, & Mother

    In this unashamedly magical episode, my collaborator Jonathan Koe and I are joined by a dearly admired member of our community spaces - Nicole France-Coe. Nicole landed in an astrology course that we tended to last year, and this year, Nicole will be joining us as part of the community support team for our upcoming course, Astrology as Praxis along with Jaclyn Skeans, who was the guest of Episode 23. This conversation is as unapologetically mystical, profound, and grounded as Nicole's presence is.

    We discussed how Nicole found our spaces through a deep, intuitive call to learn astrology, how Nicole's life led them to the devotional path to The Great Mystery, and what she's learned about being living in the liminal as a mixed race, gender non-conforming, neurodivergent human. Nicole also spoke about her experience with astrology - trusting the stars to tell her who she is, working directly with the planets through her own embodied gnosis, and how astrology connects them to their ancestors. 

    Nicole, Jonathan, and I had such a fun time during the point of the conversation where we collectively realized that Astrology as Praxis will be a year-long dance party with the planets. I'm excited for you to experience Nicole's magic with us in Astrology as Praxis.

    Here’s Nicole’s bio:

    Nicole Providence France-Coe (she/they) is a devotee to Great Mystery and all Its beauty, pleasure, liminality, and dismantling power. She is more at home in the Unknown than the Binary and the Static. Being born onto Earth as a mixed race, gender non-conforming, neurodivergent human has provided the blood and bone blueprint for learning how to dance in the cracks.

    Nicole relates deeply to the archetypal energy of the Trickster as well as the High Priestess and delights in wedding these two energies in her body and through her oracular offerings.

    This fall, with her partner Dicky, they will be launching their business website, The Lion & the Lute. This space will hold their offerings in service to ancestral healing, oracular arts, handmade goods and flower essences.

    In the meantime, you can reach Nicole at nicoleprovidence@gmail.com or IG @nicolefrancecoe.

    In this episode, Nicole also mentioned The Lyceum - The Sacred Trust https://sacredtrust.org/workshops/pollen/ as well as Kathryn Solie's poisonous plant medicine class https://www.kathrynsolie.com/

    We also mention the work of Rachel Blodgett of Serpent & Bow. You can hear Rachel on M2M in Episode 43. And Megan Frye of Healing Wave Hypnosis. You can hear Megan on M2M Episode 56. 

    Join me and Jonathan in a year-long astrological learning container, Astrology as Praxis! Our curriculum explores various portals to approaching and integrating astrology into our lives - as a practice for unlocking creativity, questioning consensus reality, and remembering our participation in the cosmic body. We begin our journey on Sep 10, 2022, and registration will open on Aug 26-28, 2022.

    66. This Is What You Came For: Curriculum Magic with Jonathan Koe

    66. This Is What You Came For: Curriculum Magic with Jonathan Koe

    So thrilling to be getting into the real deal - the structure of what we will actually be doing in Astrology as Praxis: Remembering Your Participation in the Cosmic Body, my upcoming year-long astrology learning container. This is what you come for. 

    How can we turn curriculum-building, something potentially boring and mundane, into a magical, mystical, creative practice? How do we build learning containers that are not only sturdy, but life-giving and nourishing? How can we create a course curriculum that works through our lives, our bodies, our spirits? 

    In this conversation, Jonathan Koe and I sat for a meaty, joyful conversation on the curriculum of our upcoming course, Astrology as Praxis. As lifelong students and teachers, we geeked out over our shared love for a juicy course curriculum. So we knew that when we began speaking to the spirit of Astrology as Praxis, we wanted to also craft a robust curriculum - one that will ensure that participants will feel held, cared for, and, simultaneously, challenged during the transformative experience of the course.

    We argue that it's once you're actually inside the experience that you learn what you came for. The visible curriculum is supported by so much invisible care, and we are transparent about our process here. I had so much fun talking about it all.  

    We discussed how we weaved our mystical practices into the creation of this curriculum, how reflecting on the cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn) volunteered to help us with creating structures for the container, and finally we revealed and discussed the powerful syllabus for Astrology as Praxis.

    In the final 25 minutes, I speak to some logical and practical concerns you may have: how to afford this experience, what times are the meetups, and so. Stay until the end for answers to your questions. 

    Join me and Jonathan in a year-long astrological learning container, Astrology as Praxis!

    65. Embroidering the Cosmos with Jaclyn Skeans

    65. Embroidering the Cosmos with Jaclyn Skeans

    What a joy it is to share the story & the spirit of my student-client-collaborator Jaclyn Skeans here on Moon to Moon. Jaclyn is no stranger to the podcast. She was on episode 53 with some of the crew from The Magician's Table 2021 talking about working with Fire and elemental magic. And she joined the last episode - number 64 - on Astrology as Community Constellator, with folks from my previous astrology learning container Charting Your Course.  

    Jaclyn shares how astrology has infused her life over the last couple of years, calling her into emergence again and again as she has listened and shown up. As I share in the intro, Jaclyn is such a heart-opening presence for me and for those in the circles where I witness her. She will melt you with her honest and loving voice. In 2022, Jaclyn has become a force of inspiration for us, as she's listened to the coaxing of the planets to reclaim her identity as a creative person.  

    I swell with pride to announce that Jaclyn will be joining Astrology as Praxis - my new learning container co-facilitated with Jonathan Koe - as part of our community support team. She will be helping us hold the space and will be teaching in the second half of our time. The whole community is so lucky to have her with us!  

    Jaclyn Skeans (she/her) is an avid list maker (Virgo Rising), lover of all things magical (Pisces Sun), and always curious about how you're really doing (Scorpio Moon). Cultivating a more intimate relationship with astrology and the planets has been an ever evolving gift, one that currently has Jaclyn creating a life that inspires and excites her. In the real world you'll most likely find Jaclyn out on meandering walks with her dog, sitting in the sun, or in her sewing studio creating Astro Hoops- custom, textile creations that turn your natal chart into tangible art. Follow her @thePeachBungalow or at www.thePeachBungalow.com

    Go visit the course page and sign up to get updates and more information. Registration will be August 26-28. We begin September 10!
