STATEMENT ON PRIVILEGE & ACCOUNTABILITY
I recognize that I am a soul born into a body that has been given immense privilege at the expense and safety of other bodies. I am committed to the lifelong process of dismantling oppressive systems in all areas of life, both internally and externally, and I am committed to using my privilege to engage this process. As a teacher and as an entrepreneur, I am committed to creating a system of transparency and accountability around my work so that I can continue finding alignment with the greater movement for justice (more details on this coming in early 2021).
As a reader, my deepest promise is to hold you in your own autonomy as we explore your psychic landscape together. I am here to create a healthy, protected container, introduce you to the territory in astrological terms, and help you lean into ways to heal and transform it. I recognize that the cultural blindspots of white supremacy and my other privileges will at times filter through in my readings, and my prayer is to continue to awaken to them as they arise, and to receive feedback with humility. What I know for sure is this: you are the only one who knows your own truth.
