* professional intuitive astrologer
* healing arts practitioner
Born after a tornado during the Via Combusta, I grew up on a cattle ranch on the Saskatchewan prairie and have since lived and worked in many locations across four provinces and a territory.
I practise Western tropical astrology as a navigational tool and spiritual art, gleaning and sharing some of the advice, guidance, and wisdom it has to offer us. A humbling task.
I began my self-taught astrological studies in 2003 and started doing my first paid astrology readings in 2006. I've written a soulful, sociopolitical astrology blog since 2008 that is known for its honesty and willingness to go where others fear to tread. I also write longer, more in-depth astrology articles for paid patrons.
I work with many suppressed truth subjects and have coined myself an anarchist astro-reporter. Freedom and protecting people from harm are key themes. I believe we have to go to the roots of the dynamics that are harming us on Earth before we can achieve true healing and well-being. Otherwise, we are continually treating symptoms, rather than getting to the source of what ails us.
I work with the healing power of words and intuitive understanding.
Combining an intuitive, spiritual approach with precise and practical application of the astrological symbols, I have developed a readership and customer base hailing from many locations around the world, but primarily centred in the United States and Canada.
My writing has been published in the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix, Regina Leader-Post, National Post, Briarpatch Magazine, Prairie Dog Magazine, Yukon News, Aquarian Newspaper, Roblin Review, Country Grind, Hexagon Astrology Magazine, Ripe with Rage zine, and more. I've also appeared on many podcasts and community radio shows.
My zines are available in the University of Victoria (Victoria, British Columbia) and Mount Royal University (Calgary, Alberta) zine collections.
I worked for two years as an in-house bead jewellery designer and maker at Art of My Heart, TD Square Mall, Calgary, Alberta. I made hundreds of pieces of unique jewellery during my time with the store, creating a successful jewellery line that specialized in semi-precious stone, freshwater pearl, and Bali silver combinations. Some of my designs can be found here: Weeping Willow Designs, and I still have a few items for sale at my Etsy shop.
I'm also a long-time activist with multiple independent activist and public education campaigns under my belt. My most recent work has involved opposition to the 5G wireless rollout and cell tower densification and to forced artificial water fluoridation in Regina, Saskatchewan.

"Brilliant writing, poignant reminders and truth telling. I am grateful that you continually offer your time, observations and talent. Your leadership is strong and you shine bright in the night. Thank you for being here."
"you're a gift to us for these times and i can't thank you enough for your indomitable spirit and your encouragement to keep believing that a better world is being birthed."
"I can't thank you enough for the work you do; you are a tremendous writer."
"You are an island of sanity in a sea of bullshit!"
"Willow, I love reading your stuff. You kick ass. You are wonderfully intelligent and articulate and I detect the most compassionate nature. Thank-you for sharing your ideas, your articles are priceless."
"Thank you for being down-to-the-bone real. So rare. Like a jewel!"
"I really appreciate your perspective and all the deep research that goes into your writing; you are truly courageous in tracking and exposing so many hidden truths about the world we live in."
"You are such a blessing in my life. You never fail to come through when I am feeling lost, confused, as if I don't truly belong here. Someday I hope to be able to afford you a truly fair exchange for the value that you bring to my life. Thank you so much for being!"
"Another tremendously helpful article, the kind I know I won't find anywhere else. Good thing I have excellent taste in astrologers!"
"Thanks, Willow, for promoting values and virtues that go underrated in today’s culture: justice, compassion, courage, and basic love and caring for the earth and for each other. The world is lucky to have you in it!"
"Willow! Wow! You have thrown a spotlight/searchlight over a minefield covered with barbed wire that I will now have consciousness to pick my way through in the coming days and weeks."
"I read and reread your analysis many times. The accuracy, intuitive understanding and clarity found within is simply "otherworldly". I was profoundly struck by your ability to "see" and articulate the very complex and fuzzy issues I am intentionally working on. I cried while reading your words of medicine because you touched my soul in such a profound and spiritually kind manner. You have an innate gift of sharp intellect, "wordsmithing", and startling wit! You are an instrument of the Divine. Thank you for providing a road map and spiritual sustenance for the journey ahead."
"This was the most insightful, detailed, and helpful astrology reading I have ever had done (I once had a reading from the Dalai Lama's astrologist). I cannot recommend Willow more highly. Her guidance and expertise are incomparable and invaluable for anyone needing some extra tools to aid in navigating these extraordinary times."
"Thank you for the in-depth and insightful reading. So timely and spot on! Never has anyone put into words what so aptly describes me. Not only do I feel empowered, but also witnessed. The gratitude I feel for your insight is beyond words."
"This was an amazing reading. Willow's extremely perceptive in how she delivers the information she's gathered about your chart. I value a straightforward approach, and she recognized this quite naturally and didn't give me a lot of 'spin.' Most important, she had insights that made me start changing my approach to many areas of my life. And guess what? Things started to get less difficult. She didn't say the Chiron return I'm experiencing was going to be easy, but she did give me a new perspective on how to weather it. Phew! So glad I consulted her, and I highly recommend her services!"
