Episode 31: October Business Energy Reading

 

It’s October! BEST MONTH. This Libra is biased, but October is a powerful month for letting go of old stories and connecting into our deeper truths. The liminality of fall dredges up all kinds of crap for us to sort through, review, and release.

As business owners and creative folk, that means money. Specifically fear of not having it, and how that fear drives us to make decisions in our businesses that are not necessarily in alignment with our vision.

October’s Business Energy Reading is all about approaching that fear and finding ways to work through it. Are we really broke, or just afraid of it? If we are, can we move through any shame to ask for help? And what does help look like in a month when we are invited to face the deepest fear of most business owners: failure?

It’s not all doom and gloom I assure you, but October is a big ask for us to step the fuck up. If September was about doing the work, October asks us to make sure that work is what we’re meant to be doing.

Episode 30: Natha Perkins Campanella

This week on So You Wanna Be A Witch we’re chatting astrology! Natha Perkins Campanella is an intuitive counselor and astrologer, and joins the show to share how we can look to our astrological chart to help understand ourselves as business owners.

In this episode, Natha tells you where to look in your chart to learn about your business acumen, and uses me as an example (all of you astrology stalker folk who just love hearing about other people’s charts will enjoy this). Natha also explains some critical transits, and helps your astrology-ignorant host understand how the stars can clarify our gifts and challenges in our business and creative lives.

We also talk about her path to astrology (it was a winding road!) and how she works with people today. There’s some mild ranting about rude comments on Instagram, and a lot of vulnerability around what it takes to grow a business.

Episode 28: Grumpisode with Yarrow Magdalena

Yarrow Magdalena Love

Welcome to the Grumpisode! That’s right, my friends – this week is all about allowing ourselves to be grumpy sometimes because owning a business is hard and catharsis is healing. I’m joined today by a dear friend and brilliant soul-centered entrepreneur, Yarrow Magdalena. Yarrow and I have been internet buds for a while, and it was such a blast to grump it out together.

We dive into all sorts of things that make us grumpy:

  • Being sick when you’re the only person in your business
  • Having to constantly try to outsmart social media algorithms
  • Wanting the security of owning a home
  • Trying and failing to not work all the time
  • Being multifaceted, multitude-containing humans who can grump and be grateful at the same time
  • and more!

Yarrow Magdalena is a tarot reader and ritual maker who helps soft folks reclaim embodiment, intuition, a connection to nature and everyday magic through the Daydreaming Wolves project. Their practices around folk herbalism, journaling, tarot, movement and creative expression are trauma sensitive, queer and body positive and as inclusive and accessible as possible.

Yarrow also runs a web design + tech studio called Yarrow Digital which supports small businesses in building heartfelt, sustainable online platforms made to hold big dreams and beautiful communities. They specialize in custom made WordPress sites as well as easy to understand tech support and run a low cost DIY business training.

In this episode, Sandy offers a crash course in astrology, and shares how her longtime passion became her career.

Sandy also opens up about finding her voice as an astrologer, and the critical role of Saturn in pushing her forward.

Sandy dives deeply into Saturn because she has an upcoming course in April 2018 all about navigating your Saturn Return. Sandy built this course with Dana Balicki, the coach who changed her life.
