As both astrologer and wellness consultant, Stephanie Gailing blends her star studies with her longstanding health expertise to guide clients towards clarity, self-awareness and holistic healing. For years, we've admired her soulful approach to the wellness world, and we're thrilled to welcome her to The Fold, where she'll share her "stellar insights" with us all. Below, Stephanie introduces us to her new monthly horoscope column and clues us in to what's to come. 

I love synchronicity, and I really pay attention to it in my life.

For years, I have been wanting to create a monthly horoscope column. Yet, either the timing wasn't right, or the opportunity that presented itself just didn't align. That was, until a series of synchronicities occurred…with all roads leading to The Fold.

After numerous discussions with Amanda, The Fold's founder, I realized how aligned we were regarding our visions of how we want to inform and inspire others. And with that, I saw how The Fold could be a stellar home for my monthly horoscope column. Know that I am beyond honored to be offering you astrological insights that I hope will provide you with stellar guidance each month.

"We’re both intentional about centering our parenting around justice and creativity and are also big believers in always being a work in progress."

So, let me tell you about the wellness-scopes I'll be sharing. 

The "Stellar Fold" column reflects how I view astrology, as a language that allows us to better know ourselves and the world around us. Through this, we gain a framework for to access a greater level of self-awareness — and the empowerment and compassion that go along with this. I believe that astrology, as a language of archetypes and time, can help us better navigate the invitations for personal development and consciousness that life offers each of us, and fold more ease, happiness and well-being into our lives.

Each month, I'll provide you with a Stellar Playbook, pointing out several key astrological alignments that color our lives personally and collectively. For each, I'll share several themes that they may inspire, arenas upon which we can turn our attention. This way you'll have a general calendar-view of the month ahead and the themes that may cast their hue among us all.

For each of the twelve signs, I'll share some key periods of time throughout the month and what to pay attention to. I'll suggest things to consider, ways to orient, what to look out for, and how to architect an understanding of what may be unfolding in your life. I'll also offer you three awareness-inspiring takeaways: a wellness tip, a question to ask yourself and an area about which to be mindful.

I hope you find these wellness-scopes inspiring and encouraging, and that these monthly astrological insights help you to fold more ease, happiness and well-being into your life.
