I got into Astrology in the catacombs of my University library, while accidentally chancing upon a book on Renaissance astronomy and its world of polymaths, omens, and stars. At first, it seemed quite unlike the philosophical universe I was supposed to be writing about-the one of the logical rules hung up like salty fish along reason's tight string. But I've come to see that both systems heavenly and sublunar-are governed by deep, predictable patterns. I've taken this insight into my professional Astrology and Tarot practice, third-eye fully open to the deep cosmic alignments and principles that structure our experience of time. Life seems convoluted and non-linear, but astrology can clarify one's sense of place in the greater cosmic order.
As well as astrology and tarot, I also designed a collection of Astro Americana collection of zodiac shirts which is inspired by county fairs, amusement parks, airbrush booths, and the kitsch pleasures of American cultural referents—big cars, baseball hats, Las Vegas casinos, etc. I wanted to combine these motifs with the equally outlandish and strange exuberance of the Zodiac so that when you wear these shirts you feel as cosmically large as whatever sign you choose to be.
