“2020 Astrological Forecast” with Pro-Witch Sarah Paasch

“2020 Astrological Forecast” with Pro-Witch Sarah Paasch

January 15, 2020

Witches! You won't need 20/20 hindsight this year, because we've got the foresight into 2020! Astrologer and intuitive life-coach Sarah Paasch is back in the studio and she's not holding back! Sarah looked to the stars and told us like it is - 2019 was hard AF and while 2020 isn't "lightening up", it will bring much growth and major manifestations. We chat about alignment, re-shaping the "mask-uline", conscious uncoupling, and how to "put the book down" to go within. And in true #Basic fashion, we also go through the astrological signs of all the "Friends" characters. In closing, Leah and Rachel give this Goddess (@Sarah_Paasch) a very spot-on Goddess Oracle Card reading.

Molly Tarlov of MTV's "Awkward" joins us for an episode that is anything but awkward. Life's a ride and timing - or rather the surrender to timing - is everything.

It's all about motion and e-motion as Leah, Rach, and Molly chat about how to ease anxiety, organic cosmic love stories, "failures" leading to better things, psychic dreams, and magic classes.
