Words by Lauren Marasco

Alternative Aquarius is an Adelaide, Australia and online based community for people interested in spirituality and mindfulness.

In a nutshell; you can use this platform as a tool for your own personal and spiritual growth.

Everyone is on their own journey and whatever makes you feel alive in life – you should chase that!

Here you’ll find an abundance of resources, tips and little nudges of guidance here and there.

Someone recently said to me that it’s not about finding likeminded people, it’s about finding likehearted people.
I 100% agree with that statement. We don't have to all share the same beliefs (that'd be boring otherwise!) but we can encourage and hold a safe space for others to find whatever makes them happy.

If you find something on here that inspires you or resonates with you – awesome.

I invite you to grab a cuppa and have a little looksy around. But don’t be a stranger!

A little more about the Owner, Lauren Marasco…

Hello! My name is Lauren and I am the owner of Alternative Aquarius.

My brain does a little happy dance knowing there are other people out there just as curious and passionate about spiritual and mindful living. 

I thought I’d start off by sharing a little bit about me…

Well, I love cups of tea, naps and cats!

I enjoy finding inspirational quotes in both the books I read and online (is that even a hobby?)

I also enjoy my weekly dose of yoga and connecting with my family and friends.

As well as running Alternative Aquarius, I’m also employed as the Marketing Coordinator for Riverdell Spiritual Centre and Meditation Teacher for Universal Balance. I have previously run workshops including Yoga Nidra, Loving-Kindness Meditations, Group Energy Healing Sessions, Chakra Meditations and Vision Board Workshops to name a few, as well as seeing clients 1 on 1 for Energy Healing sessions. These moments give me a deep sense of satisfaction knowing I’m holding space for people to relax, unwind and reconnect with themselves.


A life (so far) well lived, a continuing deep spiritual journey and exploration of oneself….

If you’ve read this far – thank you! Chuck me a message if you’d like to have a chat or potentially collaborate on a project, workshop or a freelance gig! Ah, all the possibilities…

Have a splendid day!

“At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought, but what we built;

not what we got, but what we shared; not our competence, but our character; and not our success, but our significance. Live a life that matters. Live a life of love."
