Testimonials

  • Donna rocks. When I saw my chart I felt a little overwhelmed since I couldn't understand it, but she simplified it for me and it was a great reading.  She gave me a great understanding of my chart and answered my questions honestly.  Donna has passion for her profession and is delightful.  I will definitely recommend my friends to Donna.

  • My girlfriend and I went to Donna for a one-hour reading of us individually and in relationship.  We both thought the experience was great and that Donna was dead on in what she saw in our charts.  There was so much great information that my brain was tired when we finished and then it was all a blur - good thing Donna sent over a recording of the session!  All in all, we loved it and can't wait to get back to her for more.  Highly recommended!

  • Donna is a bright light! Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious. She is able to translate the complexity of astrology into an understandable language (for me as a beginner), without losing any depth and meaning. I love how she teaches and honors the ancient roots of astrology, and also emphasizes how astrology is still connected to our every day lives in practical ways. She is by no means a "light and fluffy" astrologer, she has the expertise, wisdom, and clarity to lay it all out there. And she does it with humor and kindness, and I felt from her a true desire to help me move onward. I absolutely love her style! Highly recommend her.

  • My reading with Donna was profoundly inspiring and exciting. She shed new light on my chart in a reading that was spot on. As if this was not enough, it was algo great fun, a meeting that I definitely enjoyed from the beginning to the end. She is very warm, generous, inspiring and absolutely brilliant! Thank you so much for this opportunity! - Maria S.

  • "Donna has become a friend and mentor to me over the years. She's super brilliant and does a form of astrology that I'm not used to. I will be learning more with her in the next few months as part of her focus group. I've had one full reading and a PROSPERITY reading and SHE IS ON THE MONEY. I don't know if you can still take advantage of her short, but in depth prosperity readings, but if you get the chance DO IT!" - Suzi R., Holistic Entrepreneur

  • Thanks so much for my personal Prosperity Profile. I appreciate the input and you gave me quite a bit to think about. Your input about connecting spiritually and working my network is so right on. Wow - you covered a lot in a short call, and I appreciate it. Talking to you was like talking to an astrologer, a healer and a business coach all in one. Yea!

  • In addition to being a great astrologer Donna is also a great person. With this rare combination, she can lead everyone to self-realization as well as inner and external prosperity. Thank you!

  • Wow! Thank you for the insight into paths that will lead me to natural prosperity! Everything that you said resonated with what has been feeling like my 'true' path. Most inportantly, you shared 'me' with me by using a perfect blend of astrology, but combined so that your interpretation meant something real, rather than technical information. I look forward to my next session with you as you coach me to achieve prosperity.

  • Donna stretches her projections beyond the borders of time and space. She takes what they call in the tribe an “eagle’s eye view” and such vision is tremendously powerful. It is because of the extensive scope you can benefit no matter who you are or where you might be on the planet.
    Eileen 'ike' West, Author & EcoFeminist
  • Donna's sessions have been very enlightening. They have helped me to understand why I am the way I am, instead of asking myself ‘What is wrong with me?’ The annual forecasts have especially helped me to get through difficult times. Her advice to take my feelings of fear, anger and frustration and turn them into courage was immeasurably helpful.
    S.J., Entrepreneur
  • A reading with Donna helped to validate what I was feeling in my life. I felt less crazy. Listening to the recording later on was also very useful – there was so much information in the sessions.
    J.W., Acupuncturist
  • Her reading was very confirming for me. I also learned a great deal that really helped with the process of trying to see myself more holistically through astrology. So cool! And I feel more confident about understanding my purpose or special contribution (potential) to the universe in this life. This is something that is becoming very important to me now and I feel that I have a much better idea of how I can consciously flow with the unfolding of it all.
    L.C., Marketing Consultant
  • Donna Philosophica is both wise and intelligent… in a feminine, nurturing and compassionate sense. And totally spellbinding, from the short homilies to the wonderful Astrology and the Alchemical Myth essay. Donna Woodwell's website definitely needs to be on your itinerary.
    Richard Nolle, Astrologer
  • I've found my sessions to be very useful. They have given me better insight to the things going on in my life. And I love going back and listening to the readings again. When I listen to one of my forecasts from the previous year, I am amazed by how accurate it has been.
    J.G., Healer & Musician
  • When we meditated on the planets and elements, I could ‘experience’ their energies and this helped me to remember the information taught later on. I liked the mix of both meditations and information; it made astrology more accessible and meaningful to me.

5 Ways Astrology Makes Your Life Better

ways astrology makes your life better

1. Know Thyself

Ancient wisdom teaches that the moment of your birth is imprinted with your soul’s code. It is a map of your character strengths and talents that you need to express to live a happy and fulfilled life. An astrology chart is the ancient’s version of positive psychology used to help you find and follow your own bliss.

2. Cultivate Serenity

Sometimes difficulty feels never ending. Astrology can validate your experience, as well as tell you when there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. The ancient Stoics used astrology as a Serenity prayer — to accept the things you can’t change, courage to change what you can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

3. Tell Your Story

Astrology is a tool for narrating your own story. Archetypal characters and plots move through our lives at different times. Understanding this “language of the soul” can help you find the words to tell your own story in a profoundly meaningful way. This personal storytelling is a key factor in living a deeply fulfilling life.

4. Experience Flow

Nature is made of cycles of growth and release. Astrology illuminates these cycles at all levels of your life. Working in harmony with these natural rhythms, you can choose the best times for action or inaction to achieve greater success in all your endeavors. Astrology helps you experience this cosmic Flow.
