When you meet the muse, look her square in the eyes and dictate what she tells you.
my inspiration comes through writing, wilderness, long conversations about art and life, the exploration in all things, secret swimming holes, repurposing scraps and “waste,” the Road, the Beats, the dreamworld, color palettes, old Russian writers, music music music, discovery walks, the sun at high altitudes, astrology, metaphysics, handwritten letters, mind mapping, film, motels, crystals in the dirt, pens and markers at my disposal, the intersection of lowbrow and highbrow, connecting with people, meditation, dance.
Lauren LaRocca is a writer, astrologer, and folk herbalist living in the high desert of Northern New Mexico, though she spent most of her life on the East Coast—Pittsburgh to Western Maryland to Asheville to West Virginia. She combines her interests in art, design, writing, the healing arts, and metaphysics to create zines and songs and herbal formulas and other medicinal things.
What people are saying . . .
“Her wisdom is invaluable.”
“This could be so helpful to many, whatever their strength or struggle might be. It filled me with hope … and guidance.”
“It’s kind of alarming how spot on the latest horoscope email was. Everyone. Everything.”
“My response to this is … wow. I want to ‘sit at the feet of a master’ and hear these truths you have tapped into. I have been playing it over in my head throughout this day and marvel how the heavens and heavenly bodies can be so precise. Truly remarkable. It makes me wonder why everyone and especially every mother should have their children’s charts so they can better raise and guide them.”
“So insightful and applicable.”
“Lauren’s Astro readings are spot on.”
“This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.”
“Let me tell you, the Astro Map was a time. I was thrilled at how bang on it was!”
