What is your soul journey in this lifetime?

How can we free ourselves from the fear that blocks us from our highest purpose?

And what tools can we use during the healing process to accelerate our evolution?

These are the kind of deep, insightful questions that Lily Ashwell excels at answering. An intuitive artist, author and astrologer, Lily joins me on the show for a wide-ranging conversation on the spiritual wisdom and healing medicine that can help us live the life we’ve always dreamed of and fulfill our highest potential.

Press play for a deep-dive exploration into how astrology can be a practical tool for self evolution, using the creative process as a powerful portal into healing, how your birth chart can reveal your soul contract, Lily’s eye-opening journey with Lyme Disease and the surprising way she eradicated it from her body, simple daily rituals for somatic anchoring, and how to radically transform your relationship with fear so that it no longer stops you from achieving your dreams.

About Lily Ashwell

Lily Ashwell is the intuitive artist, author and astrologer behind Heavenly Bodies Astrology.

Ashwell studied at London’s renowned Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and her cult following began soon thereafter. In 2012, she launched a collection of vintage-inspired dresses, which evolved into a full lifestyle brand and the opening of her much-loved shop in Venice, California. In 2018, a healing journey moved her away from fashion and deeper into spirituality. She spent three years channeling, studying and creating her most recent offering, the Heavenly Bodies Astrology Deck and Little Guidebook.

With her skilled artistry and discerning eye, every creative project born by Ashwell emanates her distinct aesthetic — soulful and nostalgic, yet modern and refined. Her online platform offers a curated selection of devotional tools, fine art and the inspired essentials one needs to learn astrology and build an at-home altar.
