Empowerment Series: Astrologer & Psychic Seen in Cosmopolitan, E! News, Popsugar and US Weekly, Esoteric Esa Shares Love Predictions with AW
Growing up, reading the daily horoscope was always a fun part of my morning. I looked forward to seeing how much of what I read, really happened. I think watching my mother do it, inspired me to do the same. Do you believe that your star sign predicts what happens in your life? Are you familiar with Astrology or the characteristics of your Zodiac sign?
Astrology has been around since the 18th century. Originally, the purpose of it was to foresee a person’s journey in life. Some of the predictions were based on the positions of the planets and the star sign he/she was born under. Over time, it evolved to include the perception that personalities are based on the energy represented in our birth chart, too. Zodiac signs have also been tied to the relationships and experiences in our lives. While many people are incredulous, others swear by this fascinating pseudoscience.
Esoteric Esa is an Astrologist and Psychic with bylines in Cosmopolitan, Popsugar, and Hip Latina. The expert has been featured in E! News and US Weekly. Now, she has teamed up with Chispa, the #1 dating app for Latino singles which has received over 7 million downloads to bring us the 2023 Love Predictions.
AW sat down with the Astrologer to discuss her journey and the story behind this work. We also talked about zodiac compatibility and characteristics, a collaboration with Chispa, and how to use her guide to help us understand ourselves better.
I had the opportunity to review your zodiac help guide. I am an Aries and wow! It was on point but it is still a mystery to many. Can you briefly share with us how you began your journey to becoming an Astrologist? For those not familiar with it, maybe, explain briefly what is Astrology. I love my Aries brothers and sisters. It is a good year for Aries in love! You are going to meet your soulmate this year. Astrology is energy, language, art, and science. Your astrology is about understanding the energy that is sitting in your aura and who doesn’t like learning about themselves? Would love for you to read these horoscope predictions we wrote for Chispa. Astrology is helpful in getting to know yourself and increasing self-awareness and self-examination. As sexual beings, we need to know what makes us tick, and turns us on. This way when swiping, we know our compatibility. The horoscope stickers help steer you when looking for a partner.
There is a large community looking for different ways to connect with that special someone but finding that “right” fit is not easy! What role do you think zodiac signs play in our lives and the romantic partners we choose? Beautiful question – love that! We want our “Solteros” (Singles) to find love on Chispa this year. This was the point of these horoscopes. This process can be overwhelming, but we wanted to do this collaboration, in hopes that your needs are met while meeting people online.
How can we best use this guide to find new love? If you are not familiar with zodiac signs, this will be a good resource. First and foremost, you should use it to understand yourself better. We can learn more about what makes us amazing. If you have matched with someone on Chispa and they happen to have their zodiac sign posted, then the guide should offer a bit of a heads-up. You can go to the blog post and read about their sign. I suggest gaining familiarity with who you are going into this experience with. Are they sociable? How do you make them comfortable in this environment? Respectfully, these tips can help ensure you don’t waste your time and they don’t either.
I want to talk about your collaboration with Chispa, the #1 dating app for Latino singles that has over 7 million downloads! You are bringing us your 2023 Love Predictions. Tell us what that is about and how it can help singles in our community. One of the best parts of this partnership is how Chispa has honored my authenticity and been open to my work. I was so excited when Chispa connected with me because whether we are familiar with astrology or not, a lot of us in the Latinx community grew up watching Walter Mercado. The O.G. of Astrology. He was such a part of our culture, this is an ideal collaboration. I do many readings on love compatibility. I’m a huge advocate of understanding the affinity of different signs with our loved ones and those we interact with.
I can’t let you go without sharing some of your magic. So, in your opinion, what are the two most compatible and least compatible signs of the zodiac? This is a fun question, one I am asked all the time. I love that you are asking. There are lots of nuances to astrology. When it comes to love in particular, we want to look at the Moon and Venus signs for compatibility but at the very least, you want to know your Sun sign and someone else’s. I recommend trying your own element, first. Zodiac signs are categorized by elements, Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. For example, for Aries, I’d say interacting with other Fire signs like Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius is a good way to approach astrology with your dating. Pisces are introverts, more homebodies, and would put out Aries’ fire. Aries enjoy adventure and are spicy!
In terms of signs that mesh, Virgo, and Sagittarius are deep thinkers, philosophical, intelligent, and grounded in each other. Usually, these couples will have lots to talk about and kick it, really well.
In terms of signs that don’t do well together, Leo and Cancer are like Fire and Water. We have Cancers, who are so empathetic and giving. Leos are self-focused and command presence. Cancers would be energetically drained by someone who generates a lot of energy, demanding much attention.
I like to end AW interviews with a quote, mantra, tip, or advice to encourage readers, listeners, and viewers. I believe finding love starts within. It is important to learn to love yourself before finding the right partner to complement. How can your zodiac guide be an aid in understanding ourselves better and improving self-love? Thank you for seeing it from that perspective because it’s not only about toxic positivity and optimism, optimism, optimism. The reality is that we all have unhealthy and shadow traits that need work.
This was something else, I appreciated about this project, and how we wrote predictions. We made sure to season it very lightly and delicately with every sign’s flaws. I view these weaknesses as opportunities to improve.
Lastly, be yourself and stay authentic. Sometimes, when we really like someone we want to do whatever it takes to be liked, and show only the best version of ourselves. There is a desire to be loved but we are doing a disservice. In the long run, this will not create a healthy relationship. If you have to convince someone to see your worth then you are dimming your light, therefore hurting yourself.
You can find the zodiac predictions on Chispa.com. Remember these are not only for romantic partners. Readings can assist the understanding of friends and family and all around improve the interpersonal relationships in your life.
It is important to strengthen self-awareness, as you grow into the person you are meant to be. Whether seeking self-improvement, a love connection or just believing in the celestial, these predictions can be entertaining, and sometimes useful. They can serve as a learning tool to get in tune with who you are and your relationships.
