Ze Marie has been a student of the Tarot, astrology and metaphysics for over 25 years. Through her extensive use of various oracle cards, she has tapped into the realms of inner workings of the mind. She is a firm believer, however, that you don't need to use cards to read the messages that the Universe sends to us. In our everyday lives, we have messages all the time to help guide us, whether it is a song on the radio or a passage from a book. If we are open to it, the Universe is always showing us the way to move to a more positive future. Her truest passion however is the use of astrology. Her use of astrology goes way beyond the newspaper columns most people associate horoscopes with. Through her studies she has found a way to unlock some of the mysteries of why life's rocky spots seem to be part of a bigger cycle. She believes if a person can go back to the true beginning of a situation, an event hidden in our psyche, you can open the door to true healing and transformation. In the late 90's she started Ze's Oracle Parties which allowed people to have readings done in their own homes and explore different Oracles with friends. For a while during this time period she created and facilitated a group called Different Paths which gathered people from many different religious backgrounds to explore different beliefs. While she does walk the solitary path in her belief system, she does belong to the magical eclectic group called the Circle of 42. When looking to attend a retreat set up around the Divine Feminine and the Goddess Energies, Ze Marie could not find anything within driving distance that was affordable. So she decided to do it herself. She set up her first retreat in 2009 at a beautiful nature sanctuary called Lothlorien near Bloomington Indiana. Since the first INVOKING THE INNER GODDESS, she has held four more with the last one being attended by over 35 women. In 2011, she started a local woman's group called Within Every Woman is a Goddess. Listed on meetup.com, she looks to bring women together from all walks of life to honor their own inner divinity by studying the Goddess Archetypal energies and bringing them into their daily lives.
