Tali knew she should join Office Nomads because Jupiter, her ruling planet, was moving into the social house of her chart. She had been working from home and this seemed like the perfect time to find a place where she could work around others. Already, as a Sagittarius, she’s an extrovert and finds that she thrives on entrepreneurial energy and creative independent folks. “My favorite coffee shop turned into a bar so it was time to get a real desk, not just a booth. Plus, I was sick of smelling like espresso at the end of each day.”
So the Seattle half of the AstroTwins and AstroStyle found her way to Office Nomads. Tali works with her identical twin sister, Ophira, helping people style their lives by the stars. This involves one-on-one consultations and a ton of writing. Tali serves up free daily, weekly, and monthly horoscopes on her website Astrostyle.com. She is also the official astrologer for Elle.com, Victoria’s Secret Pink, and MyLifetime.com. Her approach to astrology is to “bring the stars down to Earth,” and create useful, relatable, practical advice to help people navigate their lives on THIS planet.
Creating empowering women’s media has been a common thread in Tali’s writing from the very start. At age 18, she won Sassy magazine’s Reader Produced Issue contest and was flown to NYC to help create an issue of the legendary teen publication under the direct guidance of Jane Pratt. She returned to the University of Michigan later that year and created her own magazine, HUES, which was a multicultural women’s magazine that also focused on healthy body image for women.
While working on HUES, she was introduced to astrology. “I like understanding the psychological motivations behind people; what makes them tick. Astrology is an intriguing way to get into the subconscious aspect of our own personality and understand the deeper aspects of ourselves.” Taking that passion and using her history in magazines, she has been able to build this “accidental career” in which she’s flourished.
We’re pretty happy to have Tali and her adorable dachshund, Wendell, at Office Nomads. Make sure to say hi next time you are here!
