I’m very excited to share with you a conversation I had about astrology with my dear friend Cole Imperi on her podcast called Life, Death, & Tarot. She is a dual-certified thanatologist and one of America’s leading experts on death, dying and grief.
Astrology, like tarot, is another old tradition that still exists in modern day. How can astrology fit into modern life? In this episode we talk about eastern vs. western astrology, implications for modern life, and how death can show up in your birth chart! We also share how often astrology shows up at end of life….it’s quite often a surprise to a dying person’s loved ones!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of our wonderful listeners. We hope your holiday is filled with gratitude and love.
