Let me introduce myself
Astrologer, author, meditation teacher and ceremony host. Josie effortlessly combines her love of spirituality with a touch of humor and down-to-earthness.
I can help you with my astrological knowledge to unlock your potential and your strengths. By understanding your natal chart you can break free from limiting beliefs. Past experiences show us that we often unconsciously keep ourselves small. Just think about it: how would you be if you got rid of all the blockages in your life?
I have always admired astrology. As I got older, I got more into it. I did that because I had a desire to understand myself better, because I know that life isn’t always a walk in the park. It brought me so many insights. As I started to share more, I noticed that many people around me also became very curious.
I wanted to help them with what I’ve learned so I decided to dedicate myself to this higher knowledge and I will keep studying and practicing astrology on a professional level.
I’ve always been very sensitive to the outer world. As a young girl I would cry myself to sleep because the questions I’ve had about life and death were too overwhelming. Even though I had a lot of friends to play with growing up, I often felt more connected to my pets and other animals. I did not grow up alone, but I felt very lonely and isolated.
This loneliness never really went away. When I was twelve I developed an eating disorder to gain some sense of (false) control over all the things I could not control: my grades in school, other people’s opinions, relationships that were falling apart, the passing of loved ones etc. To the outside world I looked happy and popular, but inside I was struggling with depression and insecurities. Even though I have beautiful memories when I think back to my teenage years, I also see a lot of pain, abandonment and trauma.
Fortunately I healed my eating disorder and was able to focus on school and career. I graduated and I got into a very abusive relationship that changed my life forever. After a lot of talking and EMDR therapy this is where my own healing process began. At a young age I was introduced to reiki and other holistic modalities and I got in touch with this side of myself again. I changed my diet, friendships and focussed on rest and artistic talents. When I get out of the abusive relationship, I started to question everything in my life: who am I? What do I stand for? what is my purpose? I found my way back to astrology and my love for this language and beautiful tool grew bigger and stronger.
When I got diagnosed with a very stigmatised disorder in 2021 everything fell into place. My whole life turned upside down but somehow also made more sense. There was a lot of grief, shame and pain but also a lot of beauty and new found freedom. With this new sense of purpose I dove even deeper into the art of astrology and got certifications in energy work, reiki and Kundalini.
We experience darkness and beauty in our lives, sometimes simultaneously. The way I see it, is that we get the opportunity to change these darker parts into something valuable and special. I share my story because I want you to know you are not alone, even when it feels like you are. My purpose with astrology and healing is to help you to get out of your freeze state. There is a fire in each and every one of us, just waiting to be awakened.
You've might have seen me here:
I hear you
Working 1:1 with an astrologer or space-holder can get quite intimate. There needs to be a sense of trust. I always tell clients: finding an astrologer, sometimes can feel like finding a right doctor or practitioner. You want to feel comfortable, safe, heard and seen.
With a lot of life experience and healed trauma myself – I will try my absolute best to hold a safe space for you. I spent a lot of time with a lot of different people during this work. From famous musicians and actors, successful business (wo)men to pro athletes and caregivers. I’ve learnt that everybody who comes to me wants one or two things: personal evolution through healing and acknowledgement and a peace of mind.
I’ll provide an anchor that will support you to connect to your greatest power and potential while also giving you the space you deserve and need.
My mission is to create more softness in the world of emotional healing, to reach you a warm cup of tea on a dark day
Working with me
As a typical gemini I have a lot of interests and it’s hard for me to sit still. In 2014 I graduated as a graphic designer and in 2015 I got my diploma as a make-up artist at Mieke Petiet. In the meantime my curiosity in astrology grew bigger and bigger. I started to take it more seriously and couldn’t stop reading about different natal chart placements. Learning more about the birth chart opened a whole new world that I needed to explore.
4 years ago I started to work as a professional astrologer. I’ve followed different courses, webinars, read and wrote different books, interpreted over 500 natal charts. But, as an astrologer you’re a student for life and every time I sit down with a new client I learn something new.
My sun in gemini helps me translate.
My moon in pisces helps me relate.
My Capricorn rising helps me to keep a clear overview.
Peanut butter, my corgi (Brioche), sunsets, palm trees, chai tea lattes, meditation, astrology (no way), cinema, the desert, psychology, hiking, experiencing synchronicities, reading poetry, when it’s sunny but cold outside.
Gemini sun, Pisces moon and Capricorn rising!
I love Sagittarius risings and moons, they are so often people that are so easy to be around with and talk to. I also have a soft spot for Pisces (especially Moons and Venus). I am sure my future husband has a Capricorn Venus, I can’t help myself with my Capricorn rising.
I am never done learning. With a North Node in sagittarius I am always looking for things to expand my horizons. I just finished a study about chakra healing and became a certified meditation teacher. I am currently studying stress regulation (to make mental coaching part of my job).
Live life for yourself, that’s when you’ll be the happiest and feel most fulfilled. When you live life according to you, the people around you and your relationships will thrive. Living a life for yourself means you live an authentic life and you’ll more easily attract the things you are in alignment with.
