This Week’s Horoscope

    Whether you celebrate Halloween, Day of the Dead or Samhain, this week continues to align with yesterday’s powerful New Moon in Scorpio reminding us to take a moment in the darkness to remember those who came before, honor the shifting of the season, and plant new seeds that will germinate over the winter and bloom in the spring.

    This week be sure to notice how the sun lies low in the sky, how the shadows deepen and what looks different right now. Perspective can lead to great wisdom.

    About the Artist

    We are so excited to feature the work of Sydney based illustrator Fionna Fernandes! Her colorful and energetic style immediately caught our attention. Many of Fionna’s pieces feature strong females with an influence of 90s, Japanese culture, and the artists Laura Callaghan, Hattie Stewart, Kelly Smith, and Kelly Thompsonby. Each work has a touch of fun to it as she selects a key detail to highlight, such as the lips on a model, or her eyelashes. At the moment, her dream is to go to the original Disneyland in California. We can’t wait to see what amazingness she creates after her visit. Follow Fionna on Instagram.
