Hello, my name is Maya and I am a lover darker hues of life and a shadow worker who uses astrology, human design and gene key maps and the language of archetypes to do my Soul Work.
I am here to inspire you – and support you if you choose to work with me – to do the same.
The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are. (Carl Jung)
THE GENESIS STORY OF DARKER MATERIALS
Please note: I speak only of astrology readings in this video because I recorded it before I integrated Human Design and Hologenetic profile (Gene Keys) into them.
I have attended a couple of Evolutionary Astrology courses with one of my favourite astrologers, Sabrina Monarch My other great teachers are Tom Jacobs , Tara Aal, and Sonja Francis to name just a few. Also, an amazing free educational platform, where I learnt so much, is the EA Zoom Meetings youtube channel.
But essentially I am an autodidact. A well self-taught astrologer.
Over the last 30 years – and particularly deeply and intensely over the last 10, since my Uranus opposition – astrology has been my primary language for making sense of the world and my place in it.
Also, as a 5th house Pluto in Virgo square 8th house Mars in Sagittarius (both retrograde), I lived a life of a relentless push&pull of deepest desires – some darker than others, some mine some others’. But despite popular belief, this push&pull is not about fulfilling the actual desire (there’s no such destination); instead it’s about understanding its nature and in the process seeing who we are and what we are made of.
Also, opposing this stelium is another cluster of archetypes hanging off my North Node – all in Aries and full of *undesirable* desires: Chiron, Venus, Lucifer and Eris. And all in my 12th house. Living mythically, even if I had no clue at the time, was – and still is – the order of many of my days.
I also have a First Class Honours degree in English Literature (obtained in the United Kingdom) earned by demonstrating a talent for deep listening and laser sharp analysing of language to hear the subtlest nuances of meaning, intended or not.
This is in fact one of my superpowers – to listen deeply and to hear clearly all that is said, as well as omitted. And from that, discern what best guidance I can offer.
As for Human Design and Gene Keys I discovered both modalities in early 2019 and have been obsessed with them since. I bought all the key books and read them like a woman possessed. I have also been living my own design since then and have noticed my life improving dramatically by just knowing how I’m designed to make decisions. Also, both have been an amazingly effective tools for deconditioning (another word for shadow work). They are filling the gaps and adding new signposts to my astrology chart – my personal hero’s mythic journey. And that has been invaluable.
AND THIS IS ME, UP CLOSE & PERSONAL:
For me it’s a matter of professional integrity to be transparent about my own charts. It is important that you know my biases, my filters but also my strengths – it’s another way of helping you decide if I am the right reader, teacher & mentor for you.
