Our mission is to create tools that support social transformation through the layers of self-awareness, harmonious community, and global abundance.
The Personal Astrological Almanac is our first offering towards this aim, and we welcome your feedback and suggestions.
Honeycomb Collective is founded and operated by Madeline DeCotes and Colin Hawkett, with support by Amy Marie Truax. The three of us met while studying at Portland School of Astrology in Portland, OR, USA, in 2017–2019. Madeline, with a background in graphic and information design, and Colin, with a background in technology infrastructure and software engineering, wanted to collaborate and innovate something for the astrological community.
The idea for the personal almanac occurred one day in October 2018, when Colin observed Madeline manually transcribing all her personal astrological transits for the month into her journal. "We should automate this," he said. And together they embarked on a journey of development, prototyping, and finding print-on-demand suppliers.
Version 1.0 of the personal almanac was released in May 2019 at NORWAC in Seattle, WA, USA. Version 2.0 was released the following year at the virtual NORWAC event.
Over time, we plan to continue improving and expanding our offerings, and we appreciate you for joining us in this journey.
