Meet the poet
I’m Cristina (Libra Sun, Cancer rising, 2/4 Manifestor), and I’m glad you found your way to this space.
A lunar being in a solar world, I was born five minutes before midnight, with both the Sun in Libra, and Luna as the ruler of my nativity, sitting on the Imum Coeli, the lowest point of the chart. I've always been an achingly sensitive nocturnal creature ever since I can remember.
Astrology claimed me in late 2009 and it’s been quite the journey ever since.
After studying a contemporary, mostly person-centered iteration of Astrology for a decade, I felt the need to reinvent my approach to this sacred language. Nowadays, the way I practice Astrology is heavily rooted in the Hellenistic tradition, while still retaining humanistic and psychological elements.
My practice is in service of creatives, visionaries and artists. I believe that the reason why you feel compelled to share your vision is because the vision itself wants to move through you. I'm glad I spent a good three decades of my life complicating things for myself so that I can make them easy for you : )
As an astrologer, I am mostly self-taught, even though I was lucky enough to meet an incredible, amazing mentor on my path in the person of Jason Fleming of Sagittarian Mind. I routinely supplement my ongoing study and research with materials from Demetra George and Kelly Surtees; I never truly stopped being a student of Astrology, and at this point I doubt I ever will.
As a musician, I taught myself to play guitar and bass. I received some formal Belcanto training and it appears that I'm a coloratura soprano. I probably like to scream and growl more than I like to sing, though. Maybe. I'm not sure.
I also hold a M. A. in Cultural Anthropology and Ethnology from the University of Bologna, Italy. When I’m not studying, daydreaming, reading or hiking on the mountains surrounding my home near Lake Como, I’m either listening to music, playing music, recording music in my living room or writing songs. Social life? I don't know her.
