Creating lifestyle magic with our stars, this is what Cosmo Muse is here to passionately pursue. There is infinite inspiration available through astrology to inform our lives and we think this is a fantastic way to add intention and playfulness to ‘lifestyle’. Going far and beyond the Sun sign horoscope (although we do provide this coveted tradition on our horoscope page) what most people don’t realize is that we all contain aspects of each sign in our astrological makeup. We hope to show and collaborate with others in an experiment on how to use the energy and patterns of our cosmos, to our advantage, with fun and style in tow. Living in season with the planets is actual magic!

THE YOGI MUSE
Training as a classical ballerina till she was 18, Brooke enjoyed finding ways to communicate stories and emotions through movement.

Brooke received her 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2010. Recognizing both the healing powers and communicative abilities of yoga, Brooke focused her Masters research on teaching individuals about place through the art of yoga. An Aquarius at heart, Brooke is always looking for ways to inject creativity into her yoga practice. For Cosmo Muse, she enjoys customizing yoga sequences for the different astrological signs. When she’s not practicing yoga Brooke, enjoys recreating in the mountains of Utah with her fiancé and black lab Harley.

THE NATURE MUSE
Raised on a small organic farm in rural Virginia, Katie developed a deep love and reverence for the Natural World from her first barefoot step onto soil. The emotional connection to the turning of the seasons and skies is a cornerstone on which she was raised, and continues to move through the world.
Katie moved to California in 2011 after a career in advertising to live in a remote cabin and farm in Santa Cruz as a way to reconnect with the earth. Through a series of fortunate connections and a strong amount of manifesting, Katie founded her floral design company, Eothen. Eothen, Greek translation for "from the East," honors and celebrates Mother Nature and the immense amount of beauty she brings.
Her work has been called kinetic, spiritual and evocative. Big energies, loud music, holding ritual and seeing the signs all strongly influence her art. She is eternally grateful for all the love and guidance that's brought her to where she is today.
