I am a web designer by day and a plant lover, a hermit-introvert, a writer, a breathwork facilitator, an aspiring herbalist, a tarot reader and a queer self-care champion by night. When I grow up I will live in the woods in a tiny witch house, grow vegetables and host retreats.
Daydreaming Wolves is about tarot magic, feminist perspectives on ritual and pleasure, journaling, self- and community care and folk herbalism – all the things I love wildly. I particularly care about helping survivors and marginalised folks built resilience because I deeply believe that healing is political.
Do you want to know what the stars say about me? I am a Scorpio with a Libra moon, Venus in Scorpio and Leo rising – definitely the kind of person that emotionally unavailable dates would consider “too much”. Talking about feelings is my jam.
I bought my first book on witchcraft and healing on my 11th birthday. Despite this fortunate early life event my teenage-self decided to be sensible and train for a “real” job – unpaid overtime, sexist bosses and dehumanising air conditioned offices included. At 24 I was an HR manager until I spent a night out crying into my blackberry because the emails just would not stop coming in. I knew life needed to be radically different, but I was broke and I had no idea how to make it happen.
I remembered the magic of reconnecting with nature, journaling and asking for guidance I had first come across on my 11th birthday, but it felt very abstract and I could not manage to ground myself in it. Intellectually I wanted to learn, get better quickly and be super productive, but really the years since then have been a slow process of un-learning and remembering the things that feel magical. I most definitely already wanted to smash the patriarchy back then, but I was having trouble getting out of bed so that seemed like a lofty idea. What made most sense to me in the end was to nurture my resistance against oppressive ideas around our worth as humans and to remember our deep interconnectedness as well as the possibility of collective and individual healing.
My little dog, who has similar ideas, is called Orlando. He luckily joined me on this path and together we are some kind of nap/self-care dream team. Other than napping I am really into autumn, trauma sensitive bodywork, exploring my intuition with tarot, reading weird books till 2am, drinking herbal tea, coming home to stillness and colour coordination, wearing velvet and having introvert adventures.
My work celebrates queers, trans people, working class babes, people of colour, folks with disabilities and survivors. You are welcome here and it matters to me that this space is accessible to you.
If you have any feedback do send me a message here, I would love to hear from you!
