Welcome!

I am a web designer by day and a plant lover, a neurodivergent hermit-introvert, a writer, 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. 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. There was a lot of unpaid overtime, sexist bosses and dehumanising air conditioned offices –  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 folks, working class babes, people of colour, people 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!

So much love,

Yarrow

Inspiration and qualifications

I have an MA in creative media and a BA in social science and creative writing, but honestly growing a small business has taught me much more.

I have also trained in several body work and healing modalities such as yoga, breath work and massage and I am a big believer in self-study and the magic of going into the forest at night to figure things out.

There are many, many people that have inspired me, so I will name just a few here – I have studied with Vanessa Sage for some years which has taught me a lot about the intuitive use of tarot for big and small decisions; I have been mentored by Nancy Antenucci which really helped me be my weird self and I love the writing of Clarissa Pinkola Estès.

Currently I am also studying with the Herbal Academy as well as Ren Zatopek and I am training as a celebrant. My heart beats fast for people who care for the earth and are working to dismantle systems of oppression in creative and healing ways – some that come to mind are Asali EarthworkDori MidnightBeth MaidenSean DonahueJennifer Patterson, Julia Cameron, Natalie GoldbergSarah Faith Gottesdiener, and Travis Alabanza.
