As a Scorpio, I’m a natural empath, using my watery emotional side to bring you the astrology answers you need to find abundance. My favorite tools of choice are the stars, as it was my grandmother who first told me many moons ago that’s where all the answers were. And my Scorpio side favors writing as my medium of choice to express those answers. When I’m not pondering life’s big questions, it is my dream to one day be the crazy cat lady on my street.
