Episode 25: Using Astrology to Gain Perspective with Tati Petkovic

Astrology means a lot of different things to many people but for those you go deep into what it all means they agree that it allows a level of introspection that many of us wouldn’t do daily in the same way. Tati Petkovic founded her astrology line Moon Sign Supplies to connect people to their signs in a way that was easy to incorporate into every day life. From totes to phone cases, there’s a playful nature that Tati explores with each design and she describes the process as revisiting play with crayons and energetic colours.

In this conversation we talk about getting to know your sign and what that means about how you perceive yourself, the people pleasing nature of certain signs such as Libra but on a more complex level something that seems to apply to most women and whether it’s really a good idea to look at sign compatibility when you’re now starting dating someone new.
