*****

Maggie Shepherd is a lunar astrologer, tarot reader, space holder, mother, medicine maker and store manager for Lush Cosmetics. Born under a new moon, she is a sun in Pisces, moon in Aries, Sagittarius Rising, and member of the Earth Speak Collective. In our interview, Maggie shares how the Collective has supported her to ground into and connect with the Earth, after feeling like a Starseed and not of this planet.

Through her co-created and intuitively led business, Source Mother, Maggie offers tarot readings, moon chart readings, handcrafted vibrational medicines, ritual workshops, and sacred ceremonies. For the new moon of August, Maggie will also be hosting a Moon Magic workshop in collaboration with Earth Speak. In this workshop, we will create a personalised moon magic ritual, be guided on a vision guest to connect with cosmic energies, dive into the players of the cosmos and how they interrelate with the Earth, and with our mind, body and spirit.
