In this time of unprecedented change (which is saying something after the intense years that we have just had!!),

how you navigate the waters and how you ride the dragons, is what will make the difference. 


2024 is a Dragon Year, and it will give us what we never knew was possible, curve balls and big surprises. 


It will change us deeply.

(Yes, we know. More. Still.)


And it will change how we relate to life.

It will be impactful and exciting.

The good news is that you can come prepared!

Combining the wisdom from the 2024 astrology, and the power of Soul-based Coaching, we can give you access to a skillset that will help you ride the dragons with as much ease and grace as possible!

  • Learn to align with the power that matters most - your own power, and how to stay with that even when you are feeling challenged.
  • Make it a habit to break set and be open to change so that you can become what Nassim Nicholas Thaleb calls 'antifragile', and learn to become¬†stronger from adversity.
  • Cultivate an attitude of curiosity¬†and openness to change that helps you move beyond the boxes of what was known to you, and helps you access the deepest wisdom possible for us humans.
  • Learn to dance with monsters and dragons in ways that give you access to medicine that has been shut out before.
  • And¬†claim your co-creative power by resourcing within. Make space for what you want to come alive inside yourself first. Don‚Äôt do a thing until you‚Äôve actually felt the outcome you desire ‚ÄĒ at any level of your life ‚ÄĒ already present within your heart, mind, and body.

The beauty of Soul-based Coaching is that we help you develop and deepen this skillset, so that you embody and integrate it during our time together, ready to use the skills in your every day life.

Marcia Wade


Marcia Wade grew up in the Deep South of the 1950s and 60s, a world whose ground was shaking from the truth that was speaking to power. As a graduate student exploring the connections between ancient myths and a changing world, she discovered astrology. Forty years later, writing, teaching, and working with clients as the star-gazer at Star Sister Astrology, she’s still listening and looking at the ways the Universe lives inside of us
