Welcome to The Luminessence……..
I am an Astrologer who has studied the Secret Language of Birthdays, Western Astrology, Vedic Astrology, and Babylonian Astrology. I have many mentors who have taught me the methods of these systems alongside the greatest teacher of all…life.
I consider myself to be a self-taught Astrologer because I have learned the most about the cosmos through my own studying, experiences, spiritual awakening, and everyday interactions with the heavens above. Some of my favourite Astrologers such as Lea Whitehorse and Nadia Gilchrist are both self-taught Astrologers, so no harm in that!
I currently do not offer Astrology Chart Analyses because I am more interested in teaching through my blogs and making all of this mystical stuff realistic. I am extremely passionate about practical spirituality because too often it can be extremely difficult to understand complex spiritual information. You will find that I like to use metaphors from popular culture and history to explain Astrological energies. I am obsessed with symbols, and it is my hope that by using metaphors the information is easier to digest.
Even though I have studied many different Astrological systems, Western Tropical is my favourite system to use. I find Vedic Astrology to be too superstitious and cultural so I have opted to only study it casually. Most Babylonian Astrology is only starting to be translated and practiced thus I’ve noticed some inaccuracies with it which is why I have also opted to only study it casually.
I like to call myself a “therapeutic” or “emotional” Astrologer because I tend to place a lot of emphasis on how someone will feel during different planetary transits and so forth. It’s my hope and wish that one day I can offer Astrological Counselling services in combination with other healing modalities….stay tuned!

What’s in a Name?
The name of this blog came through in a meditation but also through a need to want my blog to be a place of light.
The name is a play on the word ‘luminescence’ which is “the emission of light from a substance that has not been heated.” It was also voted as being one of the most beautiful words in the English language.
Lumi means light in Latin, so Luminessence means the ‘essence of light.’
So join me in turning on your mystical lights, and experience The Luminessence!
And so it is.
