    Venus Cazimi in LEO

    Venus Cazimi in LEO

    In this episode, Jasmine, Kestrel, and Eliza dive into the magic behind our pre-natal Venus cazimi's (that is: conjunctions with the Sun). Together, we explore this season’s Venus retrograde and cazimi in Leo, Venus’ synodic cycle, and what the Venus cazimi that predates your birth says about you. To do so, we unpack Arielle Guttman’s theory of Venus star points and share personal stories about how we resonate with our own star points… as well as what this most recent visit to the underworld has yielded. We had so much fun recording this episode, and we hope that you enjoy tuning in too. As ever, it would mean the world if you could share our podcast with a friend and/or leave us a 5* rating on your fave podcast app. Thanks for listening!

    Antiscia with KATE PETTY

    Antiscia with KATE PETTY

    In this episode, we dig into the theory and technique of antiscia — a concept in traditional astrology that is all about reflections of light. Our guest Kate Petty is an artist, astrologer, mentor, and all-round antiscia virtuoso. In this episode, Kate guides us through 1. What Antiscia is, 2. Why it’s something to watch for, and 3. How to track it in your chart, in your synastry with other people, as well as the ways it can be activated by transit. We learned so much in this episode, and we know you will too. Please share with all your favorite astro-nerds! 
    Topics we touch on include:
    - The definitions of antiscia and contra-antiscia 
    - the antiscia and contra-antiscia sign pairs — and how it complicates traditional astrology’s conception of “aversion” (aka signs that don’t witness each other through a traditional Ptolemaic aspect)
    - The cardinal cross, with emphasis on the equinox and solstice points 
    - Planetary declination

    The Astrology of 2023

    The Astrology of 2023

    That’s a wrap on 2022. Happy New Year! In this episode, Jasmine, Kestrel, and Eliza unpack the astrology of 2023. With Mercury and Mars both retrograde at the top of the year, we begin on a slow note. But this year has a few huge changes in store. Like, generationally huge. In March, Saturn enters Pisces for the first time in 30 years. (That means if you have Saturn in Pisces, you’re entering your Saturn return. And if you have Saturn in Aquarius, your return is officially ending.) Then Pluto enters Aquarius for the first time since the 18th century. 2023 is all about cultivating supple boundaries with yourself and others and co-creating the reality you want to exist in. Tune in for a detailed breakdown of these transits and more.

    Astrology + Human Design with KELSEY ROSE TORTORICE

    Astrology + Human Design with KELSEY ROSE TORTORICE

    We are thrilled to welcome astrologer, artist, and teacher Kelsey Rose Tortorice to the podcast to discuss human design. Human design draws from several distinct traditions of knowledge, including astrology, the Qabalah, the chakra system, and the I’Ching. The result? A system that offers eerily concrete information on your natural tendencies, patterns, and the ways you can live in greater alignment with yourself. 
    In this episode, we go over the main components of human design, including how to live by your specific “strategy” and “authority."  
    We talk about what happens when you subscribe to the rules, morals, and projections of other people, and the process of de-conditioning from those conventions. We also explore different patterns of shame and judgment and how to transmute them. 
    Kelsey is also offering a discount code to Kosmic Tonic listeners: use the code “kosmictonic” to receive 20% off their course, “Fundamentals of Human Design for the Astrologically Minded."

Do you want to believe?

When I was a young girl I went into my basement with a Ouija board and attempted to summon the ghost of Tupac with my best friends. It was a little bit scary and a ton of fun, exactly like this show. I’m a fan!

Maren Morgan ,

Informative, fun, and poetic

This podcast is fantastic and all of these women have such an evocative way with words. Listening to this show has been invaluable in my exploration with astrology.
