Moon in a misty sky: Introduction to mystical pursuits 2018

Moon Sign & Rising Sign

Horoscope Popularity

Horoscopes have become incredibly popular in the last few years. Have you noticed too? In addition to seeing constellations and words like “Capricorn” and “Gemini”  printed on everything from shirts to plates, I think this trend of astrological exploration is going to continue to expand. Here are a few such avenues, along with some great resources for learning about each.

I bet you know your “sign.” Awesome! Well, there is so much more the zodiac can help you understand about yourself (and it’s amazing)!

Moon sign

Your moon sign is where the moon was when you were born. Knowing the sign of your moon is just like knowing your type of subconsciousness. It helps you listen to your intuition by understanding how it communicates. Check out your moon sign to gain insight into how you mentally process things, how you deal with past hurts, your relationship to your dreams, and how you choose to use your intuition. It is pretty cool!

Here are a few astrologers dedicated to the craft of communicating the planets’ effect on us, whose predictions are spot-on.

Chani Nicholas

Omg. She’s JUST. SO. GOOD! Chani explains why reading your rising sign is super helpful. She offers WOKE horoscopes touching on current political and social issues. And she makes her own imagery (which is AMAZING). Hop on her newsletter and regret it never.

The Astrotwins

Literally, twins who read horoscopes. They are hilarious. And comprehensive. I have their app, which offers daily, weekly, and monthly horoscopes. But they also have so many amazingly revealing articles on their site. These two also love to cover unconventional horoscope topics (such as fashion, hair, and wellness trends). Check out their amazing and prolific perspective.

What is Tarot?

This is a fun predictive card game that helps you listen to your intuition. Each card has a life theme on it. You ask an open-ended question, draw a card using your intuition, then look up the meaning of your card for some insight. I find it a stress-free way of gaining new perspectives on issues in my life that are foggy. Its one of the mystical pursuits that anyone can do, because there’s always an instruction manual to help you interpret the cards.

Fun ways to Tarot
  • Gift yourself a deck
  • Get a professional reading
  • Draw one Tarot card for yourself every day
  • Incorporate Tarot into your next bff gathering
The Wild Unknown Tarot Deck

Palm Reading


Ever had your palm read?  Most professional readers will give you lots of insightful information about yourself and your life. This may be a year you decide to get a palm reading just for fun!


Learn to listen to your intuiton by learning to read your own palm. Here are the 3 basic lines.

Love line
The most popular of lines for a reason, your love line stretches from underneath your pinkie finger over toward your pointer and middle fingers. My favorite thing to read on the love line? Which finger does it point to?
Middle finger: You tend to care most about making the other person happy in the relationship.
Pointer finger: You don’t see the point of relationships that don’t bring you joy.

Line split or in the middle: You’re flexible.

Head Line

The line of mental strength, stability, and change. The beginning of your life starts under your pointer finger, then moves toward the side of your hand (under the pinkie). Most head lines extend to underneath the ring finger, which is toward your later life years. Check out variations in depth. This helps show when you get most interested in mental activities in your life. You can also track lines off-shooting from your head line to other lines to see things you might be thinking about!

Life Line
This one wraps widely around your thumb! Excitingly, this line won’t tell you how long you’ll live. Sigh. Rather, it indicates the quality of your life. (Deeper is higher quality, more balanced.) The beginning of life is in between your thumb and pointer finger, and the line extends in time down toward your wrist.

There you go! You’re a beginner palm reader!

Palm reading for beginners

Lauren Conrad has an excellent article on palm reading for beginners. If this piques your interest a little, I invite you to check it out!

As with all mystical pursuits, there is a lot of variety in interpretation. Everyone agrees about the basics. But the deeper interpretation is in the mind of the beholder. So, if you’re reading your own palm, then go with what feels right in your gut. Discard what feels fake.

The ultimate guide to palmistry

For palm reading, the only thing I truly trust is what I call THE TEXTBOOK (because it is 500+ pages and written by two lifetime professional palm readers). The Art and Science of Hand Reading by Ellen Goldberg and Dorian Bergen was just published in 2016 and I’m obsessed.


Listen to your intuition: Be a little mystical!

So go ahead and try something here that resonates with you! I hope you find some inspiration in your own mystical pursuits.

Lots of Celestial Love,
