Styling with the Stars Vol. III: An Astrological Guide to the Fashion and Style of Venus Through the Decans

–––
121 p.
Digital PDF

May 2024

In my third installment of “Styling with the Stars,” I present a sartorial exploration of Venus through the decans. By focusing on the decan of your natal Venus, we learn the stories, archetypes, processes, desires and magic that fuel how you get dressed. This exploration goes beyond dignity and debility to find beauty, glamour and iconic style in each and every part of the zodiac.

In addition to an essay on Venus through the 36 faces, for each decan I include:
  • The degree range and decanic ruler
  • Images and significations associated with each decan
  • Famous icons who embody the style of the decan
  • Quotes from real people about their style

Drawing from my years of decanic study, the traditional images and planetary rules of the decans as well as plenty of research, I have presented a unified theory of decanic style. 

This volume is for novices and experts alike and is designed for accessibility.

May this guide inspire and enliven you; give you new ideas and projects, help you feel seen and, perhaps most importantly, have fun with your fashion.

To Take Root Among the Stars: Astrology as Healing and Destiny, Class.

–––
November 3rd, 2020

This course integrates my spiritual, astrological and literary lineages and explicitly draws upon intersectional feminist ideas of Audre Lorde, adrienne maree brown, Anne Boyer, and Octavia Butler. While all of these women know the power of collective movement, they do not neglect the power of individual transformation and destiny. By the time you finish this course, you, too will have a deeper understanding of what your individual healing destiny looks like and the transformative potential/revolutionary implications of this self-knowledge. This course does not ask you to change who you are to show up, but, rather, change the parameters of action and healing to reflect your specific journey.
