Meet the poet

I’m Cristina, and I’m glad you found your way to this space.

I always struggle with coming up with words or anecdotes to describe myself — I usually sum it up by saying that I’m a lunar being in a solar world, born during the hour of the Moon five minutes before midnight, with Luna as the ruler of my nativity sitting on the Imum Coeli, the lowest point of the chart. And while being visible is not my strong suit, making others feel seen and witnessed is.

Astrology claimed me in late 2009 and it’s been quite the journey ever since. I have healed with and through Astrology, and I consider it nothing short of a honor and a privilege to assist folks on their healing journey using the tools at my disposal.

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.

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.

I also hold a M. A. in Cultural Anthropology and Ethnology from the University of Bologna, Italy. When I’m not stargazing, studying, divining, daydreaming or walking in the woods surrounding my home in the mountains near Lake Como, Italy, I’m either listening to music, playing music, or writing songs.
