FAQ (ASTROLOGY READINGS)
What exactly is Astrology?
Astrology is an ancient art form and divination tool that uses the position of the stars to help you discover more about the journey of your soul. From the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus, is the maxim: "That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracle of the One Thing.” Essentially, As Above, So Below. Whatever happens on any level of reality also affects every other level.
What kind of Astrology do you offer?
Though I've delved into many different studies, I mainly use Western Tropical Astrology and use the Placidus house system. During a reading, I ask to channel your guides of the Highest Order and allow whatever wants to come through to come through. I also always offer practical advice with my readings to help you remain in alignment with your Highest Good.
Is Astrology actually real?
Yes. The stars have never been separate from us. The same elements within the stars also exist within us. Quantum mechanics, the study of the micro-world, shows us that though the world appears very solid, it’s actually not so “physical” at all. Though we appear to be separate beings, at the quantum level, we truly are all connected.
Common, it’s not real science, is it?
Google’s definition of science: “The intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.”
Ancient Astrologers looked to the sky and used math constantly to calculate the exact movements of the stars the same way astronomers did and still do. Then they observed the world around them and compared their experiences to the stars above. Experiments were often involved. Now we have computers to do all the math for us, which gives us Astrologers a lot more time to sit and observe the natural world and do experiments. So yes, I consider Astrology to be an ancient science, but because it does involve the intuition, it’s also an art form and divination tool.
So you’re telling me that the stars actually control what’s going on down here on Earth?
No, not exactly. Knowing what’s going on within the stars is like getting an energetic forecast that tells you when it’s a beneficial time to make certain choices with your free will. The stars have never taken you away from your free will nor have they affected your ability to choose love over fear. They merely serve as a reflection of what internal energetic shifts are occurring within you as an individual, and within the collective and the planet itself. The configurations of the stars produce specific energetic vortexes that send you energetic upgrades that your DNA uses to re-write the program that manifests the world you see.
The path a soul chooses determines what energetic signature the person carries with them. If many lifetimes are spent within one specific area of the cosmos, certain archetypes will then be embedded into the consciousness, which will be evident when reading a natal chart.
Okay, that was pretty esoteric. Can Astrology actually help me?
“Millionaires don’t use Astrology, billionaires do.” - J. Pierpont Morgan, an American financier and banker who dominated corporate finance and industrial consolidation in late 19th and early 20th Century United States.
Essentially, YES! Astrology can show you your strengths and weaknesses, and what themes will be very common in your life, and in future or past ones too. This knowledge makes navigating in the physical much easier. Think logically about it. If you knew that sailing in one direction would lead you into a storm, would you still sail that way, or would you choose something less likely to harm you? Astrology explains to you what path your soul yearns to take, along with what storms are likely to arise. But when you know your strengths and weaknesses, the storms don’t seem that bad. When you understand WHY certain themes are occurring in your life, your fear dissipates, and you step into the truth that all is well.
Can you give me an example of how you learn about your weaknesses and talents please?
The trines and sextiles in your natal chart can point to your talents from previous lifetimes. Trines being very focused areas of study, and sextiles being latent gifts waiting to be expressed in a current lifetime. Squares and oppositions can point to areas ignored, suppressed or rejected by you in a previous lifetime, and so could be areas of concentration in a current lifetime. The path of the soul is one that spirals until it finds equal proportions of all elements within the Self, centred within the eye of the storm, immovable, impervious to the cycles of time or the sway of emotional or mental debris.
Do you have special gifts that enable you to read birth charts?
My energy healing practices have helped me open up my channelling abilities and psychic sight, but everyone has the ability to do this. So no, I’m not special, just obsessed with Astrology. I love thinking about the stars, communing with them, painting them, and especially talking about them to people like you! It’s my greatest joy to help people reconnect to their own souls so they can start manifesting the life they’ve always dreamed of.
What do you need from me to do a reading?
Just your birth date, birth time, birth city, along with any questions you want answered. If you book a private one-on-one reading, you'll need an internet connection and a mic or webcam too.
Will this reading actually make my life better?
That part will be up to you. I can only point you in the direction of your True Soul Path. It will be you who chooses to take that first step in the direction of your dreams. I can assure you, however, that I put my heart and soul into every reading I do and enter every live session from a place of unconditional love and acceptance.
You seem really confident in what you’re doing.
I am, and that confidence has arisen naturally as a result of me following the will of my soul that has urged me to do these readings. When I offer my heart in service to you, we both benefit. While my readings help you personally feel good, it is my wish that you take your illuminations and offer your light to others. You have the power to completely shift this world with your choice to take responsibility for your life and live as an awakened and empowered Being of Light.

FAQ (INTUITIVE COACHING)
What exactly is Intuitive Coaching?
It’s essentially talk therapy where I use my intuition and knowledge of holistic health to guide you to make decisions in alignment with your Highest Good. Before any session, I ask to connect to your Highest Guides and Angels and allow whatever messages that want to come through, to come through. Each session starts off with me asking you a series of questions about your life. Some examples are: “How’s your love life? What do you do for work? Do you like your job? What do you want more than anything right now? Why do you want that thing?” I focus on the why, because if you know the why, the what becomes effortless and fun!
After getting to know you, I take you through some safe and fun exercises to help you release mental, emotional, physical or spiritual blockages. The exercises range from writing to guided meditations or chanting. I use my Qigong and Reiki energy healing background to see exactly where you need to release toxic energy. Then I teach you how to channel healing energy so you can choose to empower yourself.
Do I have to answer your questions or do your exercises?
You never have to answer any questions you don’t want to or do any exercises that don’t feel comfortable or beneficial to you. I enter every session from a space of unconditional love and acceptance and all of your information is kept private. Ultimately, you can your time to talk about anything you'd like.
Do I have to prepare at all for a session?
Not really, but it is a good idea to write down some questions to ask beforehand so you get the most out of your session. A good question to ask yourself, before booking a session with me is, “I’m a ready to change?” If you’re not ready to heal, my healing services aren’t going to benefit you. If you remain closed off and don’t answer any of my questions, or book a reading just to test my psychic abilities, you probably won’t benefit from my services. I can only tune into your energy if you allow me to. This is an energetic exchange that requires both of us to be open-hearted.
Do you have special healing powers?
While yes, I have spent a long time opening my spiritual channels to enable Divine Light to flow through me and consider myself a Divine Channel, no, I am not special. We all have the same ability to connect to Source, and heal our lives. In a session with me, I’m not going to heal you. I’m simply going to act as a catalyst so you make the choice to heal yourself. All I can do is point you in the right direction and offer you all the tips and tools I’ve pick up throughout many lifetimes of doing exactly what I’m doing now.
What do I need for a session? What if I'm camera shy?
All sessions are hosted through a private chat room so all you’ll need is an internet connection and some way to communicate with me, a mic or webcam, your choice. We can talk over the phone if you're camera shy.
You seem really confident in what you’re doing.
I am, and that confidence has arisen naturally as a result of me following the will of my soul that has urged me to do these sessions. When I offer my heart in service to you, we both benefit. While my sessions help you personally feel good, it is my wish that you take your illuminations and offer your light to others. You have the power to completely shift this world with your choice to take responsibility for your life and live as an awakened and empowered Being of Light.
