"Simply the best. I had my first ever chart reading with Stella on my solar return last year, and it inspired me so much that I have since signed up for a mentorship to delve deeper into astrology. What inspires me about Stella: such a warm presence, holds lovingly safe space, incredibly intuitive, and a delicious way with her words that make you feel instantly soothed and understood. Basically, Stella is the bomb diggity! I'm so glad I booked that initial session and stoked to have her as a mentor/astrologer!" -Naya A.
"My most valued coach! Stella's reflections and insights help me process my thoughts and feelings and relationships. Over the years, she's given me new tools for stepping outside my own experience to see the world in a fresh light, and helped me find routes to self-care." -Sadie
"Please allow this incredible healer to touch your life. Stella is a force of nature and secret that is not best kept to oneself. The deep blessing that is her work, is an experience and piece of humanity that needs to be shared. Weaving story, mythology/archetypes and an ability to see beyond common astrology stereotypes, Stella has the ability to give guidance without "advice", which made me personally feel seen and supported. Her reading was multi-layered and so compassionate. She's funny, extremely accommodating and beyond knowledgeable." -Clarissa Doutherd
"Words do not do justice to the skill level and intuitive gifts that Stella brings to her craft. She has also read charts for my partner and I on our anniversary which was more helpful than any therapy session to help us understand our relationship and bring us closer together. I recommend Stella highly to anyone who is seeking to increase their awareness about themselves, their relationships, and how they approach life in general. She is truly gifted! Truly a pragmatic mystic." -C.C.
"Stella is an incredible resource in my life. Most recently she has been helping me prepare for my initiation into motherhood. Using an astrological reading as the basis for our conversation, Stella helps me identify the challenges ahead as well as the work I need to do to be most successful. I always leave Stella feeling more in touch with my authentic self and ready to face what lies ahead. She calls on my best self." -E.M.
"Stella is excellent at what she does. She spends an incredible amount of time researching the astrological information. She is gifted in her explanations and very thorough. It was wonderful to get a recording so that I could really spend some dedicated time re-visiting the information I received. I highly recommend Stella. Thank you." - Debi Byrnes
"I went in for a 90 min astrology reading. Wow I had no idea how much information could be packed in one session. Stella is full of knowledge and she has a certain grace and ease when sharing it with me. She painted a beautiful picture in my mind about the depths of my potential and characteristics and how they can best be used when aligned in certain time periods. It was very insightful and it will continue to help me with my own intuition. Thank you Stella! Insightful session." -Denise D.
"Stella is an astrologer who really brings it. Stella is one of those rare practitioners that really seems to "get it". Or to get me, more specifically. She is fully compassionate and knows her craft very well, and I was impressed with her extra knowledge of the asteroids in astrology, something I have a very limited experience of despite having an amateur interest in astrology myself. There were some new and big insights for me that came from that. I look forward to working with her on a continued basis!" -Ankke Orryn

"I can hardly believe how much my astrological reading has helped me to plan the next part of my life, the transition between employment and young retirement. In her empathetic reading Stella didn't throw out random predictions for the far flung future. Instead, she guided me in how to change how I deal with people and events, using the tools my unique astrological being has already given me. Stella's experience and wisdom helped me to understand who I am astrologically, both my strengths and weaknesses, and how to use my singular tools to shape the next, and I think best, part of my life." -Elizabeth G., Retired Technical Writer

I highly, highly recommended it for anyone who thinks they could gain some benefit from an astrological reading.
