Do you believe in astrology? 

Once upon a time most people observed the heavens as a way of daily life. Today, while not everyone depends upon astrology as we once did, most of us can agree that it has the potential to offer tailored guidance, a better understanding of unique personality traits and insight regarding relationship cycles. 

This week on INSIDE THE WOONIVERSE, I’m speaking with astrologer, psychotherapist, spiritual guide, climate change activist and host of the I Don’t Believe in Astrology podcast Debra Silverman! 

For Debra, astrology is medicine. She’s the author of ‘The Missing Element: Inspiring Compassion for the Human Condition’ and has even developed a unique psychological-spiritual model of astrology that she teaches in her school.

In this conversation we speak about past life gifts, astrology as medicine and how ancient elements appear in our charts and personalities.
