People ask about what it is that I do and people often struggle to define it. I usually say Astrology (and I often do).
Then people say
“You need to be more clear and actually what I am offering is more than only horoscope compatibility”.
So with that in mind, let me muse a little:
Imagine it somewhat like this:
A well studied Astrologer, mixed with a spiritual life coach and someone with plenty of experience in business and marketing. I like helping people if I am honest.
I wouldn’t call myself a certified coach, but I do like to help people, and I have a lot of experience in doing so, both professional and personal life.
Life coaching or spiritual life coaching is something that seems to have fallen into my lap, and I’ve merely packaged it in a way that clients have responded positively. Although I’ve never proclaimed to call myself a life coach or a spiritual life coach, it seems to have stuck.
To be honest, with the clients I have worked with, they usually go with Astrologer.
As we get into the coaching process, phrases and terms from both astrology and coaching worlds fly around like summer bees.
Over 12 weeks, I offer a series of spiritual life coaching sessions that help people identify REAL life goals and understand their motivations and then help them to get there.
Why Do We Want Spiritual Coaching
As people, especially in western civilisation, we live in a rat race world.
There are millions of us NOT leading a fulfilling life. We are going through the motions. We have lost our understanding of our role in the world.
Why the fuck am I here?
It’s powerful. When it gets to that point, that’s when something needs to happen.
We dream of having a new life. We want to live a meaningful life, fulfil a lifelong dream, have a good spiritual life or to have spiritual fulfilment.
If religion helps you do that, that is great and there nothing wrong or right with that. That said, this article is not a religion post.
However, underneath all of the “real world shit”, there is something a lot deeper going on.
We’re trying to have a fulfilling life. We’re trying to get to the right place in our lives, understand who we are little better. People can “wake up” and realise they are not content with how the world presented to us in its form and they want something more
This lack of contentment is often the first step.
When people look at their personal growth, certainly on a spiritual level, they decide to dig deeper into their own lives; they usually are looking for several things.
- Healing techniques or practices that can help them understand themselves better.
- We start to recognise that the secrets that we keep from the world and ourselves hold us back. We notice repeating patterns and how they serve us (or don’t)
- We look towards spiritual development and spiritual fulfilment which makes us feel emotional or spiritually “full”.
- We want to know ourselves, know our purpose.
When we start down this path, it leads to spiritual awareness. We start to examine our beliefs, our bodies, our diets, our daily practices.
Then people look at spiritual growth as something like a destination that you need to arrive at, rather than noticing when it is just a journey.
Often yoga, meditation, self-prayer, self-reflection, healing work and astrology will form a part of that journey.
It is important to remember that we are all just a spark.
A life force, driving around in these “body” vehicles.
The Law Of Attraction
There are many different areas and different methods of spiritual growth. One of which is using the law of attraction. What we are consciously and subconsciously putting out into the world. There is an old saying:
- thoughts become words
- words become actions
- actions become habits
- habits come character
- character becomes destiny
I see this, and it resonates with me. Especially as someone who has struggled with addictions in the past.
In a lousy mindset and negative place of understanding who we are
“I’m an idiot”
“I’m bad news, stay away from me.”
“I do not deserve this.”
Little things like this that we tell others and affirm to ourselves and these things subconsciously “stain” if we are not careful to clean up after ourselves.
But we are manifesting that energy.
On the flip side, we can powerfully manifest energy and a mindset that can help create action steps that help people to lead a fulfilling life.
What is a spiritual life?
Often we are all looking for a fulfilling life purpose but will ignore out intuitive inner guidance which is screaming at our minds and egos to pay attention to what is going on in our lives, ignore our minds and get in touch with our higher self.
Astrology can help give a spiritual perspective on who we are, our subconscious needs and how we can understand those needs better so that we can make our actions and thinking processes accountable.
Spiritual Coaching is NOT
I am not like a fitness coach training you at a gym who is instructing you to follow their advice.
I do not have “ideal clients”. I only have “clients”. Humans. People like you and me. We are all equal.
I do not coach clients to be more spiritual.
Spiritual Coaching Practice
Astrology for me always has been a spiritual practice and an intuitive understanding of how we are, subconsciously and how we manifest things in the world. The style in which we love, express anger and have focus in our lives, in all areas.
We have all these challenges in our charts. I merely like helping people understand those challenges and what they might look like in the real world.
It’s about remembering that we are spiritual beings.
We’re these fantastic sparks, living in great bodies in a place filled with real beauty and joy.
Spiritual Life Coaching Sessions vs Astrology
So what is the difference between the two?
I do not see a difference now that I use the two together in unison on a daily basis.
I think I could break it down into the following:
- Astrology is about understanding birth charts and the astrological happenings in space and their supposed effects on our lives.
- Coaching is more about helping people
- The Spiritual Life coaching bit is about connecting Astrology and the coaching together.
The Spiritual Coaching Process
The coaching program that I offer is more to help people understand themselves better, define their life goals and help them create the steps necessary to get there.
Any personal development that we do as humans from physical things like diet and exercise to more mental and spiritual things like meditation and self-study and reflection.
It is at times like this in our lives that a coach helps.
- If you are going through relationship issues, a relationship coach helps.
- If you are going to the gym, a fitness coach helps.
- If you are struggling with launching your dream business, a business coach helps.
- If you are trying to figure out who you are, a life coach helps.
The Astrology part of all of this process is us looking at your birth or natal chart, looking at your subconscious needs and desires.
Once we can understand your chart, we can look at specific areas like:
- Healing your pain through others
- Find real true happiness (not connected with anything or anyone)
- Your soul’s lessons in this time
- Energetic challenges in your chart
- Understanding your default reactions to people and situations.
Wants to learn and achieve in this lifetime, combined with your personalities default responses in expressing that.

Otherwise, you can just have a regular Astrology session.
Note: I have never claimed to be a certified life coach, and I do not preach about God or religion.
What I am trying to do is more about understanding the energetic spiritual principles that we are bound to, according to our birth charts.
Then we look at your ideas, dreams and goals for your “new life” and we see how we can make this happen, aligned with who you are.
