Latinas in spirituality

This year has barely started and we have already gone through a few spiritual portals. The most recent one 2/22/22 was a day packed with undeniable energy and it has left us wanting to create a deeper connection with our spirits. During the last year many of you might have gotten in touch with your inner bruja in uncertain times, reading up on your horoscope or googling why the number 1111 keeps showing up.


However, we know that spirituality is much more than a quick internet search. As astrology gains popularity, we are reminded that the Latinx community has always had strong spiritual and wellness practices. Oftentimes these are passed on from our indigenous and African ancestral lines, making them a ritual that feels more like coming home than a new practice.

For these reasons and more, we’re giving you a list of 6 Latinx spiritual and wellness mujeres to follow.

Jasmin Alejandrez-Prasad

Astrology plays a large role in some spiritual practices, so if you’re looking for an expert that is serving real knowledge on the stars and numerology, Jasmine Alejandrez-Prasad (known as Esoteric Esa on social) is your go-to. From providing knowledge about astrological cycles to better understand your life, to numerology resources, Esa is a great practitioner to help you uncover your best self.

Brujas of Brooklyn

Dr. Miguelina Rodriguez and Dr. Griselda Rodriguez-Solomon are some of the most well-known names in the Latinx spiritual community as they strive to educate and heal women using indigenous techniques.
