I hope this makes it easier for you to digest. I recently had the pleasure of being invited on the The Magic Spark podcast (hosted by my new friend "wellness witch" Tandy Gutierrez).

If you are interested in learning more about this placement and her recent ingress into Cancer, I highly encourage you to check this podcast episode out!

We chat about our relationship to magic and our tarot practice, as well as dive into the upcoming eclipse charts for both the Taurus New Moon and Scorpio Full Moon. This conversation is available both on YouTube and as a Podcast. Updates: I have had a few people ask me if I am offering readings in person in Portland, Oregon. Right now, I do not currently have a space set up for in person readings. Hopefully, at some point in the near future, I may team up with a healing center here in Portland to offer readings in person. If and when that ever happens, I will be sure to announce it in a newsletter and on the podcast. In the meantime, I am offering both astrology or tarot readings over Zoom video. It would be an honor to connect with you in that way. In addition, there are a few spots open for one-on-one Summer mentorships.

Pisces New Moon Portal I dream. I surrender. I release. Here on this Pisces New Moon we find ourselves at the end of a massive karmic cycle. On this episode, Jeff Hinshaw offers you ways in which to connect to the energy of Pisces and the New Moon. ____________________________________________________________ Podcast Season Finale Dear Cosmic Cousins, After three and a half years of podcasting, it is with the utmost mixed feelings of gratitude and sadness that I have decided to put this sacred offering on an indefinite pause. Launching the podcast during the Virgo New Moon of 2017 (Virgo Sun – Virgo Moon) and closing out on the Pisces New Moon of 2021 (Pisces Sun – Pisces Moon) feels like a deep honoring and poetic close out to what has been a truly rewarding and fulfilling experience. This decision comes with a great deal of surrender and trust in the Unknown. In order to grow in new ways, I know I need extra space to rest and reflect. This certainly isn’t a goodbye. It's very likely the podcast will continue on in new ways in the future — perhaps this Autumn I will be ready to relaunch with a whole new vision— but for now it is uncertain. On this Pisces New Moon, it’s my hopes that we all gift ourself permission to eb and flow with the tides of our soul, even if that feels scary or unknown. With this new space created in my life I am hoping to immerse myself in writing. There are a number of books inside me on both tarot and astrology that are ready to be birthed – and spirit is starting to get loud! So, I must heed the calling. I am also looking forward to spending extra time bonding with my new puppy Biji Cazimi and cultivating new relationships in my life. This Pisces New Moon is reminding us all to connect with the more emotional realms of this human existence. In addition, I am not going away – just putting a pause on podcasting. if you’d still like to learn from me in 2021, I am still offering one-on-one deep-dive astrology readings all year – and I am also hosting a monthly gathering live on Zoom called COSMIC SHIFT on the first Saturday of each month. If you'd like to stay in touch: follow me on Instagram, and stay subscribed to my newsletter and the podcast. I will keep you up-to-date on what’s going on with me through these platforms. And it is likely I will release an episode here-and-there when I feel the call. Again, thank you for your support. It means the world to me. It has truly been an honor to be of service for you in this way. If you are a Patreon supporter, THANK YOU so much for your generous support. Without you, the podcast would not have been possible. Your monthly donation has been put on pause for the time being, and I will be reaching out to you personally with more information in the coming weeks. Wising for you all a magical and restful Pisces New Moon. Love, Jeff & Biji

Because of this, I am unfortunately unable to offer mentorships or courses in 2021. I know this may be disappointing to quite a number of you who I have been in communication with about this potential, and I do hope you understand.However, I plan to continue to release the podcast so that I can offer you support, and I, of course, will still be offering both astrology and tarot readings. If you are hoping to work with me more regularly, I encourage you to book follow-up readings.

I feel. I nurture. I cradle. The Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse this weekend is special, as it is the last Eclipse of a series in the sign of Cancer – fateful realignments with home and family. In order to fully understand the invitation of this eclipse portal, it is important to connect with the Gemini North Node 29° and it’s relationship to the Cancer New Moon 0°.
This podcast episode is dedicated to the 'Black Lives Matter' Global Protests occurring in our world. For those of you protesting, I hope you are staying safe. For those of you who are not, I hope the information provided allows you deeper insight into the energy of these times. Due to the wrongful murder of George Floyd and many others, it's important to say right out that the Cosmic Cousins Community supports 'Black Lives Matters' and stands in solidarity against racial injustice and police violence. In accordance with 'Amplify Melanated Voices', I am not posting any original content to instagram: June 1 - 7. Instead, I am sharing work and information from Black + BIPOC activists and healers who are speaking directly from their lived experience. If you are seeking resources on ways to be more involved, I encourage you to visit the Story Archives on my instagram for more information. _____________________________________ Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse Fires of Great Change Eclipse energy offers a time of heightened emotional awareness with opportunities for exponential growth and evolution. During this portal, life can feel like it is moving at a more rapid pace. Sudden new insights into the world around us come flooding through, gifting us the extra encouragement to release outdated modes of existence no longer in alignment with the evolution of our planet. Simultaneously, the energy available to us offers us an equal opportunity to push us toward expanding beyond our comfort zone. During Gemini Season we become very conscious of contradictions within our immediate surroundings. The Sagittarius Full Moon seeks to balance the duality of Gemini by expanding our perception of reality to include the entire global stratosphere through collective vision. What started out as a protest in the Twin Cities (Gemini the twins) has now sparked a revolution around the world (Sagittarius the world traveler). So far, all 50 states plus 18 countries have participated in the 'Black Lives Matter' protests making it the largest Civil Rights Movement in the world to date. This particular Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse starts off a year and a half cycle of Eclipses along the Gemini/Sagittarius Axis. The last time we experienced this axis was during the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center: The Twin Towers (Gemini) – World Trade (Sagittarius). This invites us back to themes of this time period. For instance, the United States' police force acquired military grade equipment because of the terrorist attacks of 9-11. Now, we are revisiting this theme, with much discussion around how arming our police with more powerful weapons has led to more violence against Americans. As the first Sagittarius Eclipse in a series, this eclipse offers us a clue into the themes that will carry us through 2021. Fateful realignments occur along the Sagittarius-Gemini axis. This shifts the "usual" invitation of the Sagittarius Full Moon. Instead of a focus on the big picture vision, it indicates a major opportunity to release outdated Sagittarian energy. With the South Node in Sagittarius, we may experience a pull toward the shadow of this archetype.
Gemini New Moon I ponder. I process. I write. Can you cradle Darkness with Light? The Gemini New Moon is upon us. Today and this weekend offers us a time to recover and restore. We are invited inward into a place of adaptability. As the world around us continues to take new shape, simply notice what emotions this has brought up for you. Gemini energy may have us wanting to socially scatter, yet the New Moon beckons us to use this time to ponder.What movement and changes have been brought into your life? What synchronicities and chance happenings have you encountered? Do you feel a certain charge of alignment with those individuals who have come into your life? Have you met your other Self? What new you is emerging at this time? Gift yourself space to process your ever changing reality through writing, journaling, lyricism, or spoken-word.Gemini connects us to polarities. The contradictions in the world are illuminated over these 30 days. This New Moon is the time to get really clear on your own Truth within duality. Beyond the buzzing information and misinformation, what are you left with? Be mindful of the podcasts, media, and news sources you are engaging with. Be curiously discerning with who you interact with socially and intellectually. What starts out as an innocent conversation, can spin around into a space of confusion. Remember, Gemini can be a trickster.Gemini asks, "should we go this way? or that way?" Gemini responds to its own question, "I think...both ways?" In a lower-form, we may find ourselves becoming split, traveling in entirely two different directions. We may say something untruthful to subconsciously create division of the Heart. Or perhaps we agree to something out of alignment, and as soon as the coast is clear, we run off! "Now you see me, now you don't".Gemini the Twins – the Divine Messengers – often bring us new information. As our Mutable Air sign, the messages can often be surprising, contradicting, and even life changing. In my own life, I have received disheartening news, and there is nothing I can do with this information but to simply be. I have also met new neighbors (Gemini rules over the neighborhood) who also traveled up to Mount Shasta from Los Angeles. There are two of them, like twins, and they are younger, inviting me into a place of innocent presence and play. Tonight we are playing a board game, and they are the first people I have hung out with since before the pandemic. I feel heavy. I feel light. Gemini is duality. How can we hold them both?"Poverty stole your golden shoes, But it didn't steal your laughter, And heartache came to visit me, But I knew it wasn't ever after” – Jewel (Gemini Sun + Moon).Go on a walk with your contradictions. Play patty-cake with your Truth. Dance with all of the information and messaging you are receiving both from within and without. Then bring it into harmony. Gemini rules the hands – an extension of our Heart. Bring both sides of yourself together in a prayer position. Propose a marriage between Yin & Yang. When you bring together the contradiction of Self, a loving presence and understanding of Truth emerges. On this Gemini New Moon, anchor in your uncertainty. Reach out and embrace the world from a place of Truth. Open yourself up to being a loving channel of Divine Communication – build bridges between duality.I ponder. I process. I write.Gemini New Moon Blessing to you all!
Scorpio Full Moon I harness. I release. I transform. Heightened emotion and psychic receptivity. Long kept secrets revealed. This Scorpio Full Moon will likely dig up some Deeper Truths. If these new discoveries are painful or bring up uncomfortable emotions, trust that whatever arises is meant to be illuminated for the evolution and realignment of you.In the world around us, this Scorpio Full Moon may have us all feeling a bit more intense or sensitive, as we are highly attuned to unseen forces at play. This makes us quite adept in our ability to peer into the mysteries of it all. New information is likely to emerge around themes of sexuality and power, particularly as it relates to government, authority, career, and the environment (Scorpio's ruling planet Pluto is in Capricorn). Be mindful of who you interact and engage with around these topics. You may be more magnetically drawn toward outdated patterns: self-sabotage, drugs and alcohol, power dynamics, sexual compulsion, co-dependency, obsession, conspiracy, secrecy and even manipulation. With sharp discernment and precision, consciously focus your energy on healing. By doing so, you hold space (Fixed) for the emotional transformation (Water) to occur. *Use the 'King of Cups' in the tarot to meditate on the Fixed Water embodiment.The Fixed Water modality of the Scorpio Full Moon can have of us holding on to emotion. This lower vibration of Fixed Water manifests as depression, repressed rage, jealousy, holding grudges, seeking revenge, or trying to gain control or power over our emotions. If this is the case, spend time with or around water to help you release any stagnation. We may also be more susceptible to storing other people's emotions or energies. Be weary of "energy vampires" or toxic individuals or environments. Practice spiritual hygiene. Set clear boundaries. Be sure to cleanse your space and call upon assistance from your guides.What parts of yourself are ready to die? Tune in and acknowledge these parts. But be gentle. Death is a slow and sensual process. Find a healthy outlet for processing the grief of this death-rebirth cycle. Ritual, ancestral work, altar building, tarot reading, journaling, therapy, deep conversations with a trusted friend, sexual healing, and ceremonial expression like painting, poetry, chanting, or music are all highly recommended at this time.This is also a great time to be alone. Scorpio energy invites us into a more internal landscape. What would Georgia O'Keeffe do? (Cosmic Cousin's 'Queen of Scorpio'). O'Keeffe left New York City and moved to the middle of the desert where she transformed her grief into beautiful portraits of bones, landscapes, and flowers–reflecting on themes of Life & Death. Allow her life to be a metaphor of how to navigate the energies of the Full Moon. Deepen your esoteric studies or creative pursuits. Engage with and honor the four elements. Light a candle. Take a bath. Massage your body. Take deep breathes. If able, spend time in nature. She is here to help us with this transformation. Blessed be!________________________________________ NEW WORKSHOP DOWNLOAD“SATURN LESSONS: COMMIT TO YOUR HIGHER-SELF” PRE-ENROLLMENT OPEN In my own practice, I refer to Saturn as the “Planet of Spiritual Adult-ing”.

Hey Cosmic Cousins! In my own tarot practice, I use music to awaken a deeper connection to my intuition. In honor of Beltane, I present to you a multi-media tarot meditation collaboration with two incredibly gifted artists, both from different mediums. Enjoy the music of Michael Anticoli (@michael.anticoli) paired with the art of Claire Burgess (@the.word.witch) from Fifth Spirit Tarot. How does the music deepen your connection to the tarot? I would love to hear from you. Michael Anticoli is an incredible musician and is very prolific with his composing. He’s releasing an album for each of the four elements: Air, Water, Fire, and Earth. Michael always wanted to create his own Tarot deck, but he’s not as much as a visual artist as he is a sonic creator. So he thought to himself, "Why not make a sonic Tarot deck?" Michael is a Taurus Sun, Gemini Moon, Scorpio Rising, and he says this about his work, “This is a meditation, a journey, the fruits of investigating my own inner archetypes, my own stories, my own experiences. Not having lyrics attached to the work helps others listen to it and paint their own stories onto it, use it for their own divination and meditation.” Claire Burgess is a queer and non-binary tarot reader, educator, illustrator, writer, podcaster, and witch. Claire is an Aquarius Sun, Gemini Moon, and Scorpio Rising. They're the person behind The Word Witch Tarot and the host of The Word Witch Podcast, and now of course, the Fifth Spirit, which is a modern and inclusive tarot deck for a world beyond binaries. This deck is truly remarkable. It’s images are vast and really speak to my queer heart, so I wanted to share it with you on today’s episode in an effort to support the kickstarter for Fifth Spirit Tarot. You can check out my website, as well as my instagram @cosmic.cousins, where I will also be posting the images of Fifth Spirit Tarot as a video with Michael’s music in the background. ________________________ Sign-up for Mailing List – Newsletter.

Taurus New Moon I ground. I nourish. I share. Earth Day brings us a beautiful Taurus New Moon. This offers us a time to go within and express gratitude for the practical and reliable in our lives. Some of the themes Taurus connects us to, include: agriculture, service occupations, manual labor, and anything else that we consistently rely on (but often overlook and take for granted because of Taurus' unwavering Fixed Earth dependability). This feels particularly resonant for us all right now. In my own life, because of the precautions we are being asked to make due to COVID-19, I have (for the first time in my life) cooked all of my meals at home for over a month. This has slowed me down considerably. A new sense of awareness is emerging. I feel much more connected and grateful for all of the farmers and workers that help me stay nourished and grounded. Without them, I would not be able to support you through astrology. We are all so interconnected.
Libra Full Moon Justice Will be Served I balance. I relate. I recalibrate. Under the light of this Libra Full Moon, remember: everything happening in and around you is a balancing act bringing you and our planet into a deeper state of peace and harmony. If you resist the natural rhythms of this process, you may encounter frustration or irritation. Instead, how might you soften? Invite beauty into your life. You can first start with yourself. Breathe the lunar light of the moon into your body. Visualize yourself in loving balance with both the Masculine + Feminine principles within and without. Take inventory. Have you been pushing yourself too hard? Do you need deeper rest and relaxation? Have you been holding yourself back? Or do you need to activate and stand-up in your life? Either way, this Libra Full Moon gifts you the opportunity to recalibrate. In what ways can you bring greater balance to your life? Be gentle with yourself. Slow-down and listen. Create space for a more harmonious relationship between the Active + Passive, Yin + Yang energies in your life. Aries Season inspires us to focus on our individual self. The Libra Full Moon is here to remind us that we cannot do this alone. Once you’ve recalibrated yourself, you’re ready to consider the Other. Reflect on your relationships and connections. Perhaps you write a list of the most sacred relationships in your life. How do they bring you a deeper sense of love and joy? Are your relationships balanced? This Libra Full Moon may bring hidden emotion up to the surface, shining a light to your interpersonal connections. If something needs to be communicated in relationship, the Full Moon is here to illuminate. If an opportunity naturally arises, trust in the eb and flow. However, you may find this is not the time to reach out or initiate conversation around these themes, as emotions may be heightened. Instead, it might be wise to simply witness the surge of energy arising within you. Pause, wait, reflect — feel into it all — what wants to be revealed? This is a great time to journal your deeper thoughts and emotions around relationships in your life. Do you need more space in relationship? Do you desire more intimacy, support, and connection? What Truths needs to be communicated in order to bring a more loving balance to your relationships? For those of us not in loving partnerships, this is the Full Moon to connect with your desire for deeper love and connection. Open yourself up to receiving. Allow the feeling of mutual respect, intimacy, and adoration to permeate your auric field. Connect with the love you feel for yourself. Feel the love of Spirit wash over you. Take time to reflect on the shifts you’ve made in your own life and how this is creating space for you to receive deeper love. If physical traits arise, let them go. Instead, focus on the desires and emotions underneath. Once you’ve spent time with relationships, you’re ready to expand once more. The Libra Full Moon gifts us a bigger, more objective perspective. Aries Season hits the light switch on to our Conscious Awareness. Sometimes this can have us very intent on the immediate response, the here-and-now. Libra is here to remind us to take a more logical and detached approach. In its highest, Libra activates and awakens Peace, Justice and Liberation for All. Reflect on and visualize a world that is balanced and fair, where Justice is served at all costs. Invite greater clarity and discernment around these themes into your life. Connect with principals of Universal Truth. How are you using your life force to ensure equality for others? In what ways can you help bring greater balance to your community? Are you being called to take more action? Or are you being asked to slow down and reduce harm through quiet stillness? If you are unsure, that is totally okay and actually quite aligned in Libra energy. Connect to Spirit instead. Open yourself up to messages from birds, particularly: the dove, owl, egret, swan or stork. Call upon the peaceful union of God and Goddess within and without. Place your Justice and Empress tarot cards out. Visualize a healing + harmonious world. Light a candle. Say this to yourself three times: “I am a conduit for Universal Peace and Love. Allow this energy to flow through me like pure water and white light.” To learn more about the Libra Full Moon check out the latest 'Cosmic Cousins' podcast episode, released this morning. Libra Full Moon blessings to you all! ____________________ Sign-up for Mailing List – Newsletter. Astrology Reading Tarot Healing Session Patreon for Cosmic Cousins. Instagram for Cosmic Cousins.

Pisces New Moon Portal I believe. I forgive. I release. We find ourselves here at the end of a karmic cycle. You’ve most likely been feeling this shift, perhaps in ways you are unable to articulate. Pisces plummets us into the depth of emotion, while simultaneously expands us into super-consciousness – the deep well of the ocean meets the power of Spirit realms. Here, under the energy of the New Moon – the dark night – during Mercury Retrograde, we are reminded to soften – a gentle pause – a surrender to the Unknown. Whether through song, prayer, meditation, or writing, reach out to the Spirit world to assist you in this time of transformation and release. Keep hope and faith alive. "You are ten thousands reasons to rejoice".There is a rainbow at the end of the storm.☔️

Cancer Full Moon Eclipse I remember. I nurture. I feel. The world is moving through structural transformations. You are likely sensing this both within and without. Major shifts and outdated patriarchal constructs are being worked through at this time. Our collective relationship to government, authority, responsibility, business, and the environment is changing. You may feel the pendulum swing from "fear and contraction" as you cling on to old modes....with an equal swing toward "expansion and release" as you surrender to the new and unknown. This Cancer Full Moon brings to the surface the emotional undercurrents taking place underneath the surface of the structural changes. Dreams or thoughts are likely to be very heightened this week, particularly ones that connect you to your grandmother or the matriarchal line of your family. Be open to messages from the subconscious realms. Invite peace into your heart around themes of family, home, mother, and ancestral healing. If your body is achey, ask yourself, "is this mine or am I holding on to ancestral pain?"Either way, both serve as an invitation to drop in with self-care and breathe deeply.Cancer teaches us to love the pain of the past and present with all our heart.The oyster transforms an irritant into a magnificent pearl. And so it is....On this week's episode we explore the invitation of the Cancer Full Moon Eclipse by connecting with the tarot cards associated with Cancer: the Knight of Cups, The Chariot, and the High Priestess. We also go in deep on the Saturn-Pluto conjunction taking place this Sunday, January 12, 2020. This planetary alignment occurs only once every 36 years, starting us off on a brand new cycle around Capricorn themes. ✨
