Is our faith written in the stars? Astrology is the study of the influence of the stars and the planets on human lives. One day Anne-Belle reached out and offered me a birth chart reading. I had zero expectations, but after the reading my mind was blown. My birth chart confirmed pretty much my thoughts and shined a light on some past events in my life. I’ve always been fascinated by the magic of the cosmos, but this is next level. The birth chart reading sparked my curiosity, so I’ve sat down with Anne-Belle to talk about her journey.
How did you become an astrologer and what do you want to accomplish?
A year ago I followed an astrology course and gathered a lot of knowledge about this subject. I started out by casually giving birth chart readings, but I never thought it was good enough to take it to a professional level. I kept getting very good feedback from others and it encouraged me to pursue astrology even more. I used Instagram as a tool to spread the word about my services to practise some more. One day I gave a reading to a girl who has a lot of Instagram followers. When she shared her review after the reading on her account — my number of followers instantly increased. I saw the demand for my readings grow and it really boosted my confidence. For me this was a perfect time to start my own business in astrology.
Birth chart readings are a great tool to get to know yourself better. Mostly it’s a confirmation of the things you already know deep down. It helps you find clarity and explore why certain events took place in your life. The most common thing I hear after my readings is that people get confirmation that they are on the right track. For example, if you are a multi-passionate and people around you tell you to focus on one thing, it’s not always an advice you should blindly trust. I encourage people to follow their intuition. Based on the birth chart I notice and bring out the possible struggles into the conversation with my client. I provide valuable explanation and advice on why certain things happened in someone’s life and how to deal with it. The clarity my birth chart readings provide help people with their transformation and (personal) growth.
What inspires you about your work? What drives you?
It’s very rewarding to see how my birth chart readings guide people to self-acceptance. I aim to create a safe and comfortable space for my clients to share their story without having the feeling of being judged. It’s inspiring to see people glow up after a reading and receive kind words. It’s so meaningful to empower others to use their full potential to grow.
What went well and what did not work out since you’ve started? What were your valuable lessons?
The feedback I receive helps me improve my services. Everything that happens is a lesson. Once I forgot to free up the storage of my laptop before the readings. I always send a recorded version of the reading to clients, so that they can reflect on it anytime. But it wasn’t recorded, because my storage was full. Now I’ve ordered an external hard drive and I hope that I will never encounter this problem again. In the end we are all humans and stuff like this can happen.
I’ve also learned a lot about managing expectations. One time a client expected me to tell the future. I think it was a misconception about the birth chart readings I offer. The website is a work in progress, so now I’ve defined my offerings and shared it on my Instagram. Every astrologer has a different approach to readings. I’ve learned that it’s best to provide as much as possible clarity on what I do and how I do it. Doing it in my own way is what makes me stand out.
What does sustainability mean to you and how do you implement it in your work?
To me sustainability is something that you can keep up with for a long time or something that never runs out. Exploring who you are will bring you closer to authenticity. It’s important to have the confidence to show up as yourself and set healthy boundaries. Whether you are an entrepreneur or working on your career. When you are aware of your traits and accept who you are, it will help you sustain a healthy and successful growth.
What advice would you give starting entrepreneurs in your industry?
If you have an interest in Astrology I would recommend researching the different forms of it first. It’s important to know where it originated from and how other cultures approach astrology. Being an astrologer is a commitment, because the amount of information can be overwhelming. Instead of jumping into a course, I recommend exploring which approach of astrology speaks the most to you. Take it from there. It will be easier to gather the knowledge and practice once you know what direction you want to go.
