So Divine! Podcast
Astrology and Tarot Insights with Stephanie Gailing & Megan Skinner
Spiritual Counselor Megan Skinner and I have a magical connection. Whenever we get together, we find ourselves embarking upon a rich and lively conversational journey. Our discussions seem to take on a life of their own, weaving together our mutual love of astrology and archetypes, and our backgrounds in the Tarot and wellness coaching. From this perspective, we have created two podcast series: So Divine!, a monthly astrological exploration, and Divine Wisdom, offering insights on life transitions.
So Divine! is a podcast series in which we explore the celestial vibe for the current month. We take you on a journey of the ins-and-outs and all-abouts of the time, sharing astrological insights, Tarot archetypes, and personal stories. We hope you can enjoy these conversations and they leave feeling So Divine!
If you'd like to access the podcasts via Apple Podcasts where you can also subscribe to receive them as they are released, you can do so here.
In this edition of So Divine!, Stephanie and Megan explore the astrological landscape and cosmic vibe of December, including its soulful watery undercurrents, rituals to enhance your Winter Solstice experience, and the New and Full Moons. We revisit the seemingly relentless retrogrades of the past few months, and talk about how with Mercury shifting direct in early December, we may feel like we can finally move forward (pun intended!) with more clarity and conviction. Plus, the Tarot card for the month, insight into a fiery New Year’s Eve, and lots of juicy conversation!
In November’s episode of So Divine!, Megan and I explore the astrological landscape for the month. We begin by focusing in on the week of the Scorpio New Moon when we also experience a pile-up of planetary shifts—including the Lunar Nodes, Uranus, and Jupiter moving into new signs. We zoom in on the latter, highlighting some of the themes that may emerge over the next year, while also talking about how Venus ends its retrograde cycle the day that Mercury begins its next one. Get insights into the Thanksgiving Full Moon in conversational Gemini, while also tapping into the Tarot card for the month—Temperance—as well as two flower essences that can help you navigate November with more ease.
In October’s episode of So Divine!, Megan and I discuss the astrological highlights for the month, with a special focus on Venus Retrograde. With the planet of love and beauty spending most of October retracing her steps in the deep and passionate sign of Scorpio, we talk about how turning to the past and re-evaluating what you value can lead to profound healing. We discuss how to orient to the Venus Retrograde personally, while also giving a nod to current events and what may arise for us collectively. We cover the New Moon in seeking-balance Libra, a shake-it-up Full Moon in sensually oriented Taurus, the Tarot card for the month--the wise and sensual Empress--and a flower essence for added support.
In September's episode of So Divine!, Megan and I discuss the astrological highlights for the month: most notably, how after an intense summer of eclipses, retrogrades and planetary conflicts, we have a retrograde-free September, bringing some much needed calmness to our fall landscape. That's right, all the personal planets are in direct motion, until October, and with that September may offer us a time to breathe and slowly re-enage. We'll also cover the New Moon in practical Virgo and the Full Moon is get-it-done Aries. Plus the Tarot card for the month--the quiet and introspective Hermit--and wellness tips to help you find more life balance.
