This past year redefined who I am, what my values are, and where I want to focus my energy.
The Universe, in its infinite wisdom, decided to use my Saturn Return* and the pandemic to support me through a year-long Tower moment** in which important relationships, habits, and beliefs fell apart and either came back stronger, or didn't come back at all.
One of the magnificent results of this year was a shift in my values in life. I chose magic, wonder, and belonging over shame and keeping myself small to fit in.
The name Heidi Khrone represents a phoenix-like reemergence from the rubble of what my life used to be. Heidi is the spelling of my name that fits the best, and Khrone is a variation of the word 'Crone' (a wise woman past childbearing age that focuses her time in witchery, healthy mischief, and being a source of wisdom and power to those around her).
May this next chapter bring authentic and nurturing connections, a thorough embrace of our collective divinity and magic, and a deeper dive into our full selves.
