Hello, I am Donna Ellis, and I am trained in western astrology.
As a teenager, I began to explore meditation, yoga, and esoteric subjects. In 1973, a mentor gave me my first natal astrology chart session.
Over the years, I refined my studies into practices and sought others who shared my enthusiasm. I also knew a number of astrologers and absorbed more knowledge in the field than I had realized.
My young working years were filled with jobs in media and entertainment, including on stage as a musician, on radio as a news broadcaster, behind the scenes in film and television, and as bookkeeper in a metaphysical bookstore.
I studied studio art in college as well as English literature and writing. I had an unfortunate relationship with algebra that put me off all advanced math. If not for that, I may have taken up astrology in the very early days.
A career change dilemma brought me to another astrology mentor. She suggested that I, myself, become an astrologer. Her advice was to learn from the beginning so I would cover anything missing from my inadvertent lessons.
Today, like many of you, I work online. I live in America but my clients are from all parts of the world, and range in age from teens to well into their 70s.
I am a member of and adhere to the code of ethics of the American Federation of Astrologers.
Read a few of my clients’ comments, here.
I have immersed myself in my enthusiasm for esoteric subjects–and the garden–for more than forty-five years. From this I have developed practices and methods that work meaningfully for me. I share this experience, along with many of my stories of discovery and mishap, in my online live workshops, and videos and publications. I have blogged on the garden and astrology and will eventually merge much of that material to some format in my new 2020 website. Although I am writing online a little less at this point because I’m so busy talking online.
Clients come to me in many ways, including referral or chance. I am honored when someone mentions I was recommended by a client or a professional from my community.
I am greatly interested to learn how you found me and how we might work together. As a person who values the origin of all good mysteries, I look forward to hearing the inspiration that brought you to astrology or to plants.
I hope to see you soon in a live online group, or in an online consultation.
Wishing you all good things,
