The practice of Astrology is both a science and an art. The science involves the precise plotting of the heavens at the time of birth to see the individual life experience through the meanings of planetary placements. There is so much information contained in a birth chart that a reading might go on forever and not touch all that can be seen about the life—or the past, present and future probabilities. And so there is the need for a reader’s intuition to select the pertinent information and deliver their interpretation in a clear and relevant way for the client. That is the art.
Types of Astrological Readings include the interpretation of the birth chart with current indications, relationship compatibility, exploring messages of the Centaurs, election of the best timing for a desired outcome (marriage, opening a business, buying a home, etc.), finding the best location to live or find work, and answering an important ‘yes’ or ‘no’ question.
A reading with Shellie answers questions, creates greater understanding about life’s direction, defines when certain things are supported or best left alone, and describes how relationships work and what lessons are being learned. They may also include suggestions for supportive Bach Flower Remedies or Essential Oils.
Ultimately, Shellie intends for each reading to be an experience of trustworthy guidance, validation and self- empowerment for her client. Readings are done in person, via SKYPE or telephone. An mp3 of telephone readings can be sent. Some types of readings are emailed reports. See the Menu section below to order a reading.

Shellie began her training in traditional Western Astrology with a personal tutor in 1976. After several years of weekly lessons, her private practice began. Knowledge increased through reading and attending lectures. More formal training came in 1999, when she attended Jeffrey Wolf Green’s London School of Evolutionary Astrology. She began to incorporate this powerful way to see both the background and current path of the Soul to give greater validation and meaning to the events and experiences in the client’s life.
Study (and conversations) with Melanie Reinhart (author of Chiron and the Healing Journey)in 2017 expanded Shellie's awareness of Chiron and the Centaurs. These messengers, relatively new to the astrological world, reveal the source of our wound, the way toward our personal path of healing and gift us with a new dimension to our life's purpose.
Shellie has also studied and incorporated the philosophy contained in Spiritual Astrology. This came through individual study, and seminars with Alan Oken and others. Shellie also gains insight through Sabian Symbols, Fixed Stars, and the use of Tarot, or other card decks.
Shellie has lectured for both the South Florida Astrological Association and the Asheville Friends of Astrology. She has been published in The Mountain Astrologer and her daily forecasts can be found on the Facebook Astralessence page. Shellie hosts the Weekly Astro-Forecast published on the Blog page where you also can find posts about current lunar events and more.
