Welcome to the Smart Art Business Podcast hosted by art business coach Rachel Wilkins. The Smart Art Business Podcast aims to help visual artists and creative entrepreneurs grow and sustain a successful business. Featuring tangible advice and inspiring interviews with artists and industry experts, you will learn how to brand, market, and sell your art the smart way.


In this first episode to kick off the New Year, our host speaks with artist, witch and astrologer Lydia Knox to give us astrological insights and help us understand what it represents in all areas of life. She gives insight on 2022 readings month on month to help you plan ahead and manage the events that may occur all around. Keep a notepad next to you, you may want to remember dates. 



My great grandmother read tarot cards, and at the age of 10 I found her deck when I was visiting relatives in Prague and I was hooked. I’ve been reading tarot ever since. I was on TV, radio and also was mentioned in Toronto Life Magazine. I managed an online Psychic site called Psychicrealm from 2000-2008. I’ve written daily astrology that had over 10,000 subscribers. I took a bit of a hiatus from the psychic world to recharge, but I’m back again ready to read clients.


My approach is that of an evolutionary one; I feel that the tarot guides us to find the right solutions. It won’t grant wishes, but it will help us find the best path to take and highlight the lessons we need to learn. Astrology does the same thing. I’ve been learning about astrology for about 20 years; and love the detailed reading you can get from an astrology casting! I’m also a medium, and can speak to the dead, if they are willing to say something. Often times they will give us insight into something that we can not see.


Currently I work as an artist as well, and from time to time tackle the major arcana through art, or I paint something that spirit has whispered in my ear. Being a Gemini myself I like to multitask when comes to vocation. I find the two; art and psychic reader compliment each other well.



In this episode we discuss:

  • Astrology, how it works and what it means on a deeper level
  • Readings into the year 2022 and what to expect in each month
  • How to plan your days ahead
  • Signs which should avoid each other, if any
  • Easiest signs to recognise
  • What shadow work is
  • Things you can do to manage events
