Are you...

Pain 1

Out of alignment with your soul purpose?

Feeling adrift without a clear sense of purpose or creative expression can be soul-crushing.

This misalignment can leave a lingering sense of disconnection.

Rediscovering your direction and purpose is paramount to reignite the passion and motivation for success.

Pain 2

Unsure what direction
to take ?

Confusion and a lack of clarity can be debilitating. They can lead you to constantly second-guess yourself and, as a result, fail to take action.

Astrology is your roadmap, and understanding what you were put on this earth to do is critical to overcoming this problem.

Pain 4

Concerned you'll break your business?

You might fear that incorporating astrology into your business strategy might deter clients and mean you are taken less seriously.

It's essential to navigate these concerns and integrate astrology in a way that enhances rather than disrupts your entrepreneurial journey. 

Pain 3

Worried about others judgement?

When we want to pivot our businesses to align with our soul work, the fear of what friends, family, or clients might think can be paralyzing.

Learning how to embrace your authentic self, irrespective of external judgments, is vital, fostering a space for genuine growth.

In today's fast-paced world of modern entrepreneurship, it's often easy to feel a profound sense of disconnection – from yourself, your business, your soul's purpose, and even your intuition. This yearning for a deeper understanding of your true path can leave you feeling lost and confused, questioning whether you're genuinely aligned with your soul's purpose.

The cost of staying stuck

the repercussions of inertia can manifest in various facets of your life and business, leading to a profound impact on your overall well-being and success.


The toll of uncertainty, fear, and feeling stuck can lead to emotional and physical exhaustion. This depletion can impact your resilience, creativity, and ability to navigate the challenges inherent in entrepreneurship.

Passion eroded

A business devoid of purpose, meaning, and creativity hampers your professional fulfillment and seeps into the core of your identity, gradually eroding the passion that fueled your entrepreneurial spirit.

Blocked Abundance

Beyond the intangible costs, the financial implications of staying stuck are missed opportunities, diminished confidence, and a lack of strategic direction. These can impact revenues and hinder a business's financial prosperity.

Strained Relationships

The fear of judgment and lack of alignment can create a disconnect, further isolating you from valuable support networks.

Stifled Growth

As you spin your wheels, opportunities for expansion, innovation, and self-discovery remain elusive.

Low confidence

Lack of confidence can become a self-fulfilling prophecy, hindering your ability to make bold decisions, seize opportunities, and lead with conviction.

Understanding the real cost of staying stuck is crucial. It's more than just missed opportunities or financial consequences; it's a dimming of the vibrant energy that propels your entrepreneurial spirit.

Not so long ago I was where you are right now.


I had an incredibly successful business, a million-dollar e-course,  and external recognition. I was held up as an example of incredible online business success.

But I felt utterly lost. My work didn’t light me up. I didn’t feel like I was genuinely helping my clients.

I felt disconnected from the core of who I was and what I was put on this earth to do.

And I didn’t know how I was going to turn this around.

I worried about what clients, colleagues, my husband, and my parents would think about my incorporating spiritual elements into my business.

But I decided that I was worth the risk.

I stepped into the unknown and did 2.5 years of study on spiritual topics  using astrology as my guide, and I completely reworked my business for true soul alignment

And the results were nothing short of life-changing.

According to Yahoo Finance,

Astrology was 1 of 4 of the fastest growing sectors in 2020.

Astrology, an ancient science, has experienced a massive resurgence in recent times. In fact... the Astrology sector has more than tripled (309%) since 2015. My Astrology business has continued to grow throughout the COVID pandemic, with my calendar generally booked out weeks in advance. I have clients that return again and again to gain insights into their astrology and how it is impacting their life.

This means that there has never been a better time to get into Astrology and it could help you start a thriving business or expand your existing business!

Why just learn Natal Astrology when you can learn Business Astrology too?

This offers your business a competitive advantage and the opportunity to weave it naturally into your existing business as a designer, artist, coach, healer, or soulful entrepreneur of any kind.

You would be able to uncover things like:

How to tune into your unique skills and talents to create a business truly in alignment with your essence.

How to work with your natural cycles and flow so that you LOVE working in your business each day.

How to deliver BOTH Natal & Business Astrology chart readings so you can start or grow a thriving business.

What the best time to launch different projects out into the world is.

How you can use astrology in your business



If you work in branding or design, you can use astrology to create a brand or design work that is in true alignment with their natal blueprint. This means that their brand and website or design will communicate the core of who they are, how they help people, and will attract their soul clients.



You can use astrology to customize your products if you have a product-based business. An example is a colleague who uses astrology to create custom perfumes. To be able to do this, you need to understand the core archetypes of the zodiac as well as someone’s broader chart.

Hunter Lowder Testie

The level 1 course is so organized and easy to follow that I was able to complete it as a self study student! The workbooks are gorgeous and practical. I had so much fun making my binders for the courses.

I have always loved business and have decades of experience running multi-million dollar companies. I also suffered a major burnout years ago causing me to leave corporate and dive into self-discovery, healing, and more esoteric concepts. I've always been interested in astrology since I was a teen and this certification allowed me to bring my 2 loves together in one.

Kathryn takes a complex subject like astrology and makes it easy to understand and apply. The added bonus of being able to apply your unique soul's blueprint to your business to make sure it aligns with who you are is a fantastic extension of astrology as a tool.

I am already enrolled in Level 2 certification with Kathryn and excited for many more learnings ahead!

"As I was getting into astrology, information was coming in fast, and I was looking for a course to go through the foundations step-by-step before I found myself going down multiple rabbit holes! Kath brings a calming, grounding presence to the lessons, making the content easily digestible."

- Charlene Mac, Healing Practitioner, Certified Student


“I am so glad I made the investment in myself to learn astrology from Kath.”

“Her training is super organized, accessible and easy to understand. What I appreciate the most is that Kath encourages us to integrate the astrological knowledge we're gaining with our own intuition when interpreting charts and placements.

I love that she gives such a strong foundation in astrological knowledge for us to build our careers on! I highly recommend training with Kath if you even have an inkling of interest in astrology as a career.”

Melissa Brisbane

Completing the Level 1 Business Astrology Certification has been such an amazing and valuable journey in my astrology practice! Kath's process, framework, and applications to business and career are second to none! Plus this training has given me a great counterbalance in modern, psychological, and evolutionary astrology that helps to broaden my perspective.

I am so excited to start formally marketing myself as a business astrologer to add deeper layers to the astrological and coaching work I do with women.

The best part was that doing the classes caused me to do deeper work with my own chart. I've really gleaned new insights into myself and my business through this process. And I'm so happy to be in the nurturing community that Kath has built to support our learning.

I cannot recommend this course enough to anyone looking to learn about Astrology in a down-to-earth, practical, and applicable way.

I had done a few short courses with Kath before signing up to level 1 so I knew going in that it was going to be a great investment for my business.

I love how Kath incorporates video, text, live calls, community groups to meet other astrologers as well as a whole heap of recommendations on books and other resources along the way. The course is intensive and covers so much information yet the pace of the course is manageable. It’s broken down step by step with quizzes, assignments and workbooks to fill in. I learnt so much and I am so happy I made the decision to commit to a daily practice of learning business astrology. I know this will help me expand my own astrology practice as well as allow me to help my clients too.

I impulsively jumped into the Business Astrology  Certification because I knew having astrology as another tool would be helpful as a Mindset Coach.  I had no idea the study would be so spiritually rich personally. It has given me a different way in which to see myself and the world. So thank you so much for your wonderful teaching and support.
