About O! Lightning: the Job, the Blog, and the Girl
Hey y’all, my name is Omie Kate Johnson, and I really love my job! I grew up doing palmistry and face reading which I learned from my father at an early age. As an adult I became entranced with the infinite maps and intricate symbolism of western astrology. I learned to use it as a lens for absolutely everything, from the movie I watched, to the weather outside, and naturally human development and behavior.
One of the joys of my life is that through the brilliance of the internet, I am able to make far flung connections, and work with people from all over the world! I love encountering the magic and spark of each individual and the reflection as it springs to life in their charts.
Discovering, untangling, getting to the heart of what is happening, and connecting people to their own power and possibilities is at the core of what I do.
I live in New Orleans, with my sweetheart and my three teenage children. I love the thrill of discovery, the ocean, plants, music, art of every sort, reading, & writing, maybe in that order.
Working to bring clarity, relief, hope, guidance, and above all, to reconnect you to yourself on a deep level brings me joy.
About the Blog,
The O! Lightning Astrology blog is abstract, experimental, associative, informal, informative & rich with imagery and sound. The compositions come from my heart, and I hope they go straight to yours.
If you enjoy reading my posts, please consider supporting your writer!
Here are some things people have written in regard to my posts on the O! Lightning Astrology Blog:
About 2 months ago, I realized how awesome you are.
I had been reading your blog for like 3 or 4 days only and
you posted a video about some Pisces stuff. I don’t recall what it was
but you said something that just really struck me as being so insightful and
accurate and I was just amazed…Keep doing what you are doing.
I wouldn’t change a thing. I love the pics, your taste
in music is impeccable, you have a killer sense of humor, and I love your writing style.
When I read your posts its like I’m listening to a dream….
Somehow you can manage to say nothing and say everything at the same time, and quite accurately.
I feel like you obviously have a gift, you have this sensitivity and intuition that goes way beyond the astro.
Its perfect…I read a few other blogs but I always save yours for last.
I don’t feel like you are trying to write for anybody, but you just write from your heart and put all of your self into it.
Your advice is always caring and loving, it helps me to interpret things
and to go about my day with a soft open heart no matter what is happening around me. I really appreciate that. -Ruby
Your blog posts aren’t just writing; they’re works of art, they’re multimedia poetry.
I’m going to have to start liking your links before I read them because they’re so amazing that afterward I wander away on an intense mind trip of wonder and never make it back. <3 -Satori
Religiously read your posts! Love love love them! Thanks again for your weather forecasts, they do make the storms a little lighter. – Jenn
O! you have just been rocking my world with your posts lately. I think my facebook friends are sick of my comments and posts (since a lot of them are the same as yours, hehehe) Thank you so much for because of your sweet and slick words I am able to understand a bit more of what I am feeling and looking at the happenings of others with a clearer vision. Well done. -Beck
Wonderful post. You write with the energy of the planets you are describing – creating a poetic, visual and aural language which goes beyond mere literal description – it is felt.
I hope you never underestimate what you can do with words. You just nailed it!
It’s always surprising, new and inspiring. … Maybe this blog is Neptunian in essence and that’s why I like it, always lots of culture, poetry and amazing images and new bands which help explain the energy of the current astrological moment. I often download the pictures or save the videos in my bookmarks..just amazing finds. As a ‘feeler’ lol I find your way of expressing astrology suits me because you aim to capture the vibes/energies/feelings and I prefer that to a lot of technical info as I can then relate it to what I find in the world. But nice to know what is moving around up there, but feeling it is the main thing. I really like your own videos too and sometimes when you talk about your life – like the day you shot hoops and drove around, that was a special post….I must catch up on the recent posts!! xoxo Sophiepiscesmoon
Yes more videos! You have great energy -Tam
Cuz you’re doin it again… that thing where your thoughts directly relate to something I was just thinking, or saying… also for cool songs! -M
Virgo sun here, so I like analysis of the current transits and aspects, the “astro-weather” as you call it. I like your insights into how multiple aspects going on at the same time interact, there’s more layers than your typical daily horoscope provides and I think that’s great…. I really like the intuitive way you link different things and the unique ways you describe what’s going on, the more outrageous sounding the better! -Michael
love YOU!! Frickin’ awesome, very concise, imaginative and funny analysis as always. and p.s., I love yer face. You are ridiculously adorable, O! Keep on keeping on. xx – arriettyclock
I’m so glad you exist. You share these words and I remember I’m part of something much greater than myself:)
… I can’t fully describe how awesome your site is. Other sites may provide similar astro highlights but you have so many glittering insights and a poetic voice that tells a story I would have missed if you hadn’t mentioned it.
So much love and appreciation to you!-Charlotte
It does feel exactly like that! .. a joy to read you once again -Louise
…I really really like it when you psychically write about exactly what is going on in my life and how to understand and navigate it better. So please keep that up. Other things I like are when you post a song by a band that I love…..Mostly I feel that your daily blog is simply the best astrology blog in existence. -Astrocat
Excellent, Omie. Just excellent. Thank you.-Josi
Awesomely insightful, humorous and supportive during these Saturn in Scorpio times -Tasha
Your blog is a pure pleasure. Thanks for all the great work you do and all the awesome clips/pix/songs you post…always enlightening and a lot of fun to boot. xxx – Y
Dead on & on point, as usual. <3 -M
Lovely; always beautifully but not ‘prettily’ written which i respect and feel more comfortable with – and with the best images. something, or often everything, speaks to me in your astro-prose-poetry-journal, of the times, mine, yours, whatever is going on just beyond. I want to say that it comes across shamanically but that is too too an overused word and so will just puff it up into the clouds as a thought not to be dwelt on! …
…rarely have I read anything that gets close to how it relates to me, me-in-the-world, and to the world/the universal in such a striking and original/Uranian way (spot on with your name there too), BUT with something akin to the magic dark gungy action of the compost heap, wherein the worm is midden-world-king and helps earthly life grow wings – so always more than a pungent whiff of Scorpio/Pluto – as your pages do, and with such balanced loving wisdom.
I’m sure you can tell, appreciate your posts. I don’t know how you press the buttons on the astro-zeitgeist so well, visually and word-wise, but you do for me especially this year – I have a feeling the fingers of the fires will reach into Feb/March next year, at least for me personally – and I look forward to your deep light illuminating underworldly insights whenever they ‘present’ (and they are gifts) and for many thunderstorms, those thrilling matters of the gods, to come…
…Every time I read one of your posting insights (and there are many within each), and see how the visuals pair so brilliantly – how do you find them?! little fizz-bombs of (de)light go off in me – I try to give praise where due and am only being honest in wanting to pass that on as feel we all need to know when we are doing good – in all senses of the meaning – work, inspired work, that inspires others. Thank you. Please keep on keeping on! x -Janet
Your word art is so exceptionally beautiful and moving. I love to read you and am always freshly admiring of your talent to bring ideas to life and new perspective in such lyrical ways.
Thank you.-Cp Griffin
Gorgeously illuminatingly written. Thanks AGAIN!
Omie this has been truly a crrrazzzy friggin time – you’ve been pulling me through it with your worded wisdoms and super-meaningful internet procurements that amount to nothing less than sacred sorcery. Thank you so much – so grateful for this remarkable help. – Sibyl K
Gorgeous. And just what I needed to hear.-kr
I can’t stop laughing! You have such amazing angles and have so much fun with it. Love love it!
Thanx for the loveliness!- ditisjenn
This is fantastic writing, and true to the energetics to a shocking degree. Thanks! – Tasha
Your posts are inspiring and I love the images. – Katherine
Thank you for posting my favorite song on my bday, & for writing the exact right words for what I’m feeling. x -Y
Beautifully put together Omie. You blow me away with your insight. -jtgirl
