We're gettin' pregnant
Just as our understanding of astrology can only be partial, because it’s so much more than we humans can fathom all at once, so your understanding of yourself is incredibly partial. You come into Emergence Astrology because you are so brave and so curious to find out more about who you are. It takes a lot of audacity because you have to be willing to surrender expectations around what that vastness looks like. In this way, it’s a lot like getting pregnant. You don’t get to control what kind of baby you have. That’s what we’re doing in the 9-month hermitage phase of Year One. Making babies. Some facet of you knows that your perception of yourself is part bullshit.…

When I quit aestheticizing my suffering
One of the most painful things I had to surrender was my infatuation with the picture of myself as a beautiful, wounded bird. The mystical hermitage period after my separation back in 2017-2018 was utterly life-changing. I became acquainted with guidance from the other side of the visible world who were showing me my gifts as a seer and speech-artist of astrology. They showed me pictures of myself as a public astrologer, author, and business woman, a teacher and mentor to creative visionaries. This was wildly delusional at the time given that I’d only just started learning astrology and the tarot. I had only just discovered my innate capacity for ritual, ceremony, and intuitive space-holding. And I was paying bills…

It’ll be a big market with vendors and teachers. I am flying up for it and doing a free book talk Friday night and a ticketed Unshaming the Signs workshop (https://www.sideshowgallerychicago.com/classes-services/unshaming-the-signs-workshop) for up to 12 people! New episode alert: “Astrology Has a This Side & a That Side” (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/moon-to-moon/id1503553925?i=1000658482760) The first half of my adulthood, I participated from the lens of my shame. When I say participation what that looks like to me is choices. The choice to act or not act. The choice to connect or…

Emergnce is what pokes through from the other side
“This Is Emergence Astrology” Free Talk (https://brittenlarue.teachable.com/p/this-is-emergence-astrology) tonight, 6-7 pm CST, with replay available and downloadable after. $200 off at all price tiers (https://brittenlarue.com/course/emergence-astrology-year-one/) for my brand new Emergence Astrology Year One course during Early Bird starting tomorrow and Friday only, June 6-7. Mark your calendar if you know you’re a Yes. A lot of the time when we’re learning astrology, there’s this sense of “I don’t get this” or “I can’t do this.” The “this” being a set of rules and techniques and a bank of knowledge that you feel the urgency to “get your head around,” or else. In Emergence Astrology, there is no “this” to get right or wrong. It’s not to say there isn’t structure. But…

What I discovered under my mystic's robe

Hot podcast alert to disrupt pictures of mystics as all non-corporeal light and sound: “What I’ve Got Under My Mystic’s Robe” (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/moon-to-moon/id1503553925?i=1000657571350) P.S. it’s chicken feet, fangs, and a big dick! There’s this picture that I think we have that mysticism is all light and sound frequency. That it’s not corporeal. That it’s not made of the body stuff. The thing is: I didn’t know that I…

Damsel to Domme: My Top 10
The end of my marriage was the end of my Damsel Period. I said No. I also said No to finishing my PhD in the same 6 months. I had become obsessed with astrology, and I knew I could speak it in ways that would support other humans seeking rebirth. My first client came in through my intuitive healing mentor in the spring of 2018. I started my Instagram account that summer and this mailing list in the fall of that year. The way I saw it I had 3 years to get this dream rooted. Why 3 years? That’s how long I had alimony from my ex-husband to support me. In the fall of 2021, I was able to…

The wisdom of self-invalidation
What I see again and again in my role as a mentor is that the vision of the offering is already here. It’s not that you don’t think you have an offering. You know you do. You may just invalidate some part of the process of bringing it down to the planet for us to experience it. Self-invalidation is what’s behind you not sharing your offering. Hiding your genius feels like the most loving thing to do if you don’t trust yourself to stay regulated inside the possibility of being critiqued or judged. Dismissing your beautiful ideas is a logical strategy if you are terrified of the consequences of visibility. Likewise, self-invalidation is behind over-giving. It’s in the voice that…

The audacity to name what you want
Time-sensitive reminders: Today (Monday, 5/13) is the last day to get the workshop Underdog to Diva for $95 (https://brittenlarue.teachable.com/private_pages/15998128?preview=logged_out) .

Jump here to learn more and get enrolled at a lower price. (https://brittenlarue.com/course/underdog-to-diva/) Most of us humans are deeply cut off from what we want. This is not our fault. We’ve been so deeply conditioned not to trust our desires as visions, and to invalidate our dreams as delusional. We’ve been told…

3 Time-Sensitive Discounts!
This email has three announcements: The Underdog to Diva workshop was wildly expansive. Monday is the last day to grab it for $95 (https://brittenlarue.teachable.com/private_pages/15998128?preview=logged_out) . This offering has huge consequences. And every time you re-listen, you will receive it and be shifted differently. From the enormity of this project, I’m creating two brand new offerings: my first 1-on-1 mentoring container since I closed my books 6 months ago, and a new group coaching container for creative visionaries longing to grow their career in the wholeness, unshaming the wild, weird, template-less ways they do their business. More on both soon, but for now, know that Monday is the last day you can get a discount on either! This is a reward…

New Moon in Diva ♉
The 3 primary consequences of shame are lack of self-trust, compulsion to fix oneself, and feeling like you don’t have permission to set boundaries. If you struggle with any of these 3, then I invite you into my work, because unshaming is the way I teach and transform toward my larger project of love and liberation. The fixed signs support you in knowing your Yes from your No. The fixed signs root in. You are more stubborn and steadfast around what matters to the fixed signs parts of you. And so they are incredibly important at helping you navigate terrain where you might otherwise want to cave, dismiss, bend, surrender, or be confused about your values, your joys, your wisdom,…
