About

The Midheaven has been lifting the veil between worlds since 2013. Originally, it was an online home for my personal spiritual inquiry, but since then it's grown into a unique voice in the metaphysical industry and a meeting place for modern day mystics.

These days, I'm a regular horoscope columnist for Rookie, Coveteur, and MyDomaine, and my work has been featured in Glamour, Teen Vogue, and Nylon, among others. 

My goal is to bring the occult arts into the present day without sacrificing their original rigor or integrity. In keeping with this theme, we use the Whole Sign method of astrology and read tarot with with an eye towards history and cultural relevance.


One last thing: what does The Midheaven mean? 

In astrology, the midheaven is another name for the tenth house of the horoscope, which is perched at the top of the chart—in the middle of the heavens. So, over time, it became mid-heaven.

Still, the midheaven is more than a word. The tenth house is your career sector, where your vocation and public persona dwell. People ask me all the time, "What's my highest calling?" It's a tough one to answer, because ultimately, you have to answer that for yourself; however, the midheaven is the closest you can get astrologically to finding an answer to that question. It's that whole shoot-for-the-moon-and-you'll-land-among-the-stars principle.

That's why I chose The Midheaven as the name for this site. Underlying everything else is the hope that my work will inspire others to strive for the highest in what they choose to do. That it will inspire you to strive for the highest in what you choose to do.

I'm so glad you're here. Have a look around, and stay for a spell. If you have any questions, hop over to our Contact page (on the left, or you can click here!) and we'll get back to you in two shakes of a lamb's tail. 

In spirit! xx
