“Whenever you check for a new post on Instagram or whenever you go on The New York Times to see if there’s a new thing, it’s not even about the content. It’s just about seeing a new thing. You get addicted to that feeling. You’re not going to be able to control yourself. So the only way to fight that is to take yourself out of the equation and remove all these things. What happens is, eventually you forget about it. You don’t care anymore.” — Aziz Ansari quit the internet

The Power of Me Too

“It doesn’t matter whether you have a huge group of friends and go out every weekend or if you’re in a “perfect” romantic relationship (as if those exist). It’s the quality of the relationships–how much vulnerability and depth exists within them; how safe you feel sharing with one another; the extent to which you can relax and be seen for who you truly are, and truly see another.” [A 75-year Harvard study on living a fulfilling life]

Speaking of tarot, my new course, In Our Element, is now open for enrollment!

I’ve been asked many times if I do tarot readings for other people and my answer is always no, I don’t. Instead, I prefer to teach you how to use the cards yourself to connect more deeply with your own intuition. In Our Element is my third tarot-related course but this time we’re using just four cards to inspire our personal excavations. Out of the 78 cards in a tarot deck it’s the four Queen cards I search for most often when in need of inspiration. These four archetypes have become invaluable guides for me as they represent the absolute embodiment of each of the four elements — Fire, Water, Air and Earth. The Queens have SO much to teach us about sensuality and creativity, emotions and empathy, logic and wisdom and being grounded in our own bodies.

In this 4-week course we’ll study the light and shadow aspects of each element, journey to meet the Queens within us in guided visualisations, create personal practices to bring more elemental balance into our every day lives and learn what to do when the elements are out of balance. It’s not unusual to instinctively identify with one element over the others and being able to recognise when you’re too “in your head” or “drowning” in your emotions helps you maintain balance internally so you can navigate the external with more ease.

You don’t need to know anything about the tarot to take this class as I’ll be introducing you to the Queens in weekly videos. If you’re keen to understand more about your own elemental nature and learn new ways to harness and use this powerful energy in your daily life, this is the course for you.

Class starts on Monday May 8th and registration is happening over HERE.

Come play with us! x

“We’re still pretty traumatised about our periods, even though we’re now 40. Being a woman doesn’t make “being a woman” any easier. All that womb-shit is nuts. It’s like having an exploding, insane blood-bag of pain up in your business end — nothing really prepares you for when it all kicks off. One day, you’re just a kid on your bike. The next, you’re suddenly having to wedge a tiny Barbie mattress in your knickers, crying while you watch Bergerac, and eating Nurofen Plus like they’re Tic Tacs.” — I love Caitlin Moran
