Leslie Mcguirk’s story is simply unique and remarkable. Her journey begins with people telling her that she doesn’t have the talent for art. Fast forward, she became a well known artist in Japan, an author and illustrator for children’s books, and an astrologer who helps people through natal chart readings.
Truly an inspiring woman whose self-reinvention opened up doors of opportunities for her. Her gifts of art, intuition, astrology, and her character all worked together into making her the person she is today.
In this episode, Leslie shares with us her journey of how embracing what comes her way and how being wrong led her to her destiny. And how she has found a way to merge art and astrology together, and use that to help other people.
