…And what if all of animated nature
Be but organic Harps diversely framed,
That tremble into thought, as o’er them sweeps
Plastic and vast, one intellectual breeze,
At once the Soul of each, and God of all?…
-Aeolian Harp by Samuel Taylor Coleridge (lines 44–48)
My job as a reader is to help you to unite your love, will and desire…
Hello! My name is Rachel! I started writing under the name Aeolian Heart in late summer of 2015. With this project, I knew that I wanted to offer unique astrology articles that would nurture and inspire the artists and healers of the world. As a student, teacher, and writer of astrology, my work is oriented towards supporting people who need their spirits refreshed and their talents genuinely appreciated. I know that any creative or spiritual path in life takes great courage and lots of integrity. Thus people who follow these callings are often plagued by fear, self-doubt and many many questions…That’s where I can help!
Astrology and tarot are the perfect tools to enable artists and healers to ask deep questions about themselves, becoming re-invigorated to devote themselves to their inspiration and their passions. When people book a reading with me, they will find that our conversation will prompt them to clarify their intentions and to realize their highest potentials for creative self-expression.
I first discovered the Tarot during my teens, when it was still a forbidden fruit for according to my cultural conditioning. The taboo did not fully break until the onset of my Saturn Return, when I had a semi-mystical experience during a bout with a high fever. Up until that point, my academic background in cultural anthropology had long acquainted me with many categories of mystical experiences, but my education did nothing to help gain any insight into what they meant.
When I revisited Tarot and astrology during this time, I discovered a rich symbolic language that offered profound insight into the unknown. My years of immersion in mythology, literature and art laid the foundation upon which I could build an inner temple to the intuitive arts.
Astrology and tarot are profoundly useful symbolic and metaphoric frameworks through which I develop rich therapeutic conversations with my clients. In my mind, divination is a form of envisioning, not too different from the process of reminiscing. With the symbolic languages of astrology and Tarot, it is possible to fluidly discuss the past, present and future with special clarity.
I will never tell you what is for certain, but I will describe to you what can be if your love, will and desire merge into manifestation.
