    The Lunar Mansions Part 1 with THEA ANDERSON

    The Lunar Mansions Part 1 with THEA ANDERSON

    In this episode, we are thrilled to welcome Thea Anderson on the show for an episode on the lunar mansions.
    What are the lunar mansions, you ask?
    You can think of them as a sort of lunar zodiac. While the Sun passes through 12 signs in a year, the Moon passes through 28 lunar mansions every month. Medieval astrologers and mages used the lunar mansions to time certain events, as well as rites of magic. 
    Thea has studied astrology and magic with Sam Reynolds, Austin Coppock, Nina Gryphon, and Jack Grayle (among others!) Along with being a practiced astro mage, astrologer, and writer, she’s also the Director of Production at @chani.app. We couldn’t ask for a more knowledgeable and ideal guide for our journey into the Mansions of the Moon. 
    Note that this episode covers material that’s a little more advanced… but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t tune in if you’re a beginner! We all have to start somewhere. 
    Thanks for listening! Please share profusely! We hope you enjoy!

    Neptune with STEPHANIE WARNER

    Neptune with STEPHANIE WARNER

    As Neptune stations direct in Pisces, it feels timely that we drop an episode on this planet of dream, delusion, murk, poetry, music, inspiration, intoxication, and escape (among other themes — Neptune is notoriously hard to "pin down.”)
    Joining us is our friend and colleague, Stephanie Warner, a poet, astrologer, scholar, and Astrology Writer for @CHANI.app.
    Together, we explore: dreams, astral projection, the myths of Neptune and Poseidon, midlife transits, Neptune’s influence on art and culture, past Neptune-Jupiter conjunctions, and their once-in-a-lifetime (or several lifetimes) conjunction in Pisces, which happens in April 2022. It’s a packed episode, and we hope you enjoy (and share with all your friends!)

    Dreams + Astrology with STEVEN KAMPMANN

    Dreams + Astrology with STEVEN KAMPMANN

    In this episode, we speak to writer, educator and dream coach Steven Kampmann. 
    This chat was a wild and wending ride… we cover such topics as Carl Jung, healing through dreams, Steven’s journey with Parkinson’s (and how it’s impacted his dreams), the anima vs. the animus, archetypes and shadow. (And so much more, honestly!)

    The Signs: LIBRA

    The Signs: LIBRA

    Happy Libra Season! 

    We started these chats on the signs last Scorpio season, which means this is our last episode of the series. (Haven’t checked out the others? Go back and give a listen!) 

    In this episode, we explore the archetype of Libra (with our own resident Libra Sun, Jasmine.) Yes, it gets the reputation for being the “nice” sign, but Lady Justice also wields a sword. We explore the complexities of this sign as well as discuss the upcoming lunations, which include some major cazimi moments (we explain what that means in the episode) and some probing investigation courtesy of Pluto. 

    Also, here’s some exciting news: Kosmic Tonic is working with Constellation Coffee to release a line of Kosmic Tonic Teas! The first one, for Libra season, is designed to help cleanse the kidneys (the organ that Libra rules.)

    Horary & Planetary Magic with NINA GRYPHON

    Horary & Planetary Magic with NINA GRYPHON

    We are so thrilled to release this episode with traditional astrologer and astro mage, Nina Gryphon! Together, we explore the ancient branch of horary astrology, in which a chart is drawn for the moment a question is asked. This is astrology at its most divinatory, if not downright magical in its logic (while at the same time complex and rigorous.) We also discuss the practice of astrological magic, including the construction of magical talismans. Other topics include: theology, finding lost pets, the fixed stars, reincarnation, dreams, and much more.

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!

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.
