Howdy Everyone!
The name's Aquarius! I am a blue fox residing down in Texas.

Since 2010, the furry community has been an amazing family to me and an avenue to explore and grow my passions - dancing, music, drawing, and anything that's fun and exciting! Some of my favorite parts of the community have been the dance and rave scene, so you may have seen me in dance competitions at conventions such as Anthrocon (AC), Biggest Little Fur Con (BLFC), Furry Week Atlanta (FWA), Midwest Fur Fest (MFF), and Texas Furry Fiesta (TFF) or just enjoying myself at a convention rave.

Having moved so much, I never felt like I had a physical "home". And my subconscious latched onto something abstract as my "home" - and that was music. It's one of the main things in my life that makes me feel like I belong, I'm understood, I'm safe. It is also a beautiful form of therapy and a powerful method of grounding ourselves that is often overlooked. It is what drives me to dance, what drives me to create. I really wanted to share that with others in hopes that maybe I can inspire even one person to find that they too can resonate with music on that level and be able to find comfort and strength in the immense power of music. There are many things that language itself cannot express - so many of the feelings are unable to be put into words - but art can express those feelings, and in my opinion can be even more powerful of means of communication. 

There is so much hurt and darkness in the world and with the rapid globalization there is so much change that it can often times be overwhelming and suffocating. Unfortunately, there is also a huge lack of discussion regarding keeping ourselves mentally healthy in these turbulent times in order to counteract the volatile movement of modern society. Having been through much darkness myself, one of the fundamental pillars that guide me in life is that I would like to shed even a sliver of light into this world by sharing my experiences and the methods that have helped me push through. Going forward, I would like to use YouTube as an avenue to share music that really impacted or helped me and comment on how we can go deeper in our appreciation of music and art in general and use it as a way to ground and heal ourselves. 

I want to be authentic and genuine in my videos, so the direction that comes most naturally to me will be mostly curating and reviewing albums that have been very special to me. I would like to bring music therapy to furries moreso than over-hyping albums or talking-down on albums just because that's the popular thing to do (there's plenty of other channels that do that :P). I am not a licensed music therapist; however, I also firmly believe that experience itself is many times more valuable than following a standard coursework and getting a piece of paper that certifies you. I believe through the journey of my life, interlaced with the intimacy I have had with music throughout it, I can offer valuable insight, guidance, and inspiration in a more authentic and less clinical / impersonal way. Of course, you can be the judge of that as different styles work for different folks :) I fully respect it either way.

I decided to create a Patreon because I would love to make YouTube my full-time if I am able, but I cannot do it without the support of all of you lovely furs. Every dollar that is donated will be spent in elevating my content even further by freeing up time and resources for me to fully immerse in the creative process. I also believe that my content should be available to all and so am deciding to not follow the standard "multi-tier" pricing structure, but rather have one "tier" that allows for choosing your own amount that you desire. So please think of it as a tip jar to support me in this dream of mine rather than the traditional Patreon tiers with multiple awards and offerings. I understand how hard everyone works to sustain themselves in this world and so I do not take anything lightly and I do not want to make you feel pressured in any way. If you would like to support me with an amount that is comfortable to you - I will be forever grateful and it would help propel this vision forward at an accelerated pace. Otherwise, I am greatly honored regardless that you have chosen to support my vision, my passion, and my art with your time.

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for being so amazing and supportive and I look forward to making magic together!

Love,
Aquarius Crystalwave

*** NOTE TO FUTURE PATRONS ***
Patreon accounts are set to charge upfront and then the first of the month thereafter. So if this is a concern, please be sure to wait towards the beginning of the month to become a patron in order to avoid being double charged by Patreon (for example if you are charged on the 27th of the month after pledging, Patreon has this weird methodology of charging the 1st of the following month as well). So this would only be an issue for new patrons who sign up towards the middle or end of the month as it will be a regular pattern after that initial point. I just wanted to give y'all a heads up to make sure that no problem arises! Thank you so much once again for your love and support!
