For Episode 16, we talked about the recent and ongoing Mars and Venus opposite Saturn square Uranus trine Chiron, and Katy’s head-on collision with an unanticipated archetypal expression of Saturn: the death of a friend. We talked life and death and the ways that always spinning the brightest version of one’s life story can close off intimacy, as it did around this friend’s death. Michael Pollan’s book about psychedellic therapies for terminally ill patients made an appearance. We also talked about camping in the forest in North Carolina, Larkin’s whirlwind of friends and sightseeing in Seattle for which she was grateful but a tad overwhelmed (as a Highly Sensitive Person), plans for exploring the Olympic Peninsula and Katy’s anxiety about getting back to work while trying to hang in there with the Mars-Venus Saga currently unfolding around that issue for herself, and the weather 🙂

Jade had to reschedule our podcast conversation about shamanism and healing, but we’ll record that in a couple weeks.

Synchronistically, Michael Pollan was on Joe Rogan on the same day we recorded this…and he talks about forest bathing! Among many other very cool things.
