What was the journey that you took to Heretic, and to where you are now?

My father was a photographer and my mother was a model, and then a makeup artist. My earliest memory was being three years old and sitting in the dark room with my parents developing photographs. My life always very revolved around that creative process — I’m a Scorpio with a Libra rising. At the age of eight, I was given a gift of a pack of tarot cards, and it ignited something dormant within me that set me off on an astrological path, and I never stopped. Once I understood that there was this incredible, secretive, magical world out there, it opened up all sorts of possibilities in my life.
