Finding Peace on Earth & Mind The holidays follow the same astrological pattern each year, in varying degrees: A mad rush, followed by the need to pull back. Sometimes we buy too much, or discover our hopes are too high; the following crash of failed expectations can be painful. T

(written for the Tarosophy Tarot Association Magazine, April 2015) A few months ago, I asked the members of the Tarot Association’s Facebook group what they thought of astrology. While some Tarot-sophists are already astrology-lovers too, others were less enthusiastic about the “Cosmi
The Archangel Raphael is a fitting choice for the angel of Mercury. Let’s explore why ancient scholars such as Averroes and books like the Heptameron also made the association. Much of our lore about the Archangel Raphael comes from the Book of Tobit. The text refers to Raphael
Built into astrology are ancient practices for turning even difficult times to your advantage. By harnessing the power of these time-tested rituals, as well as your active imagination, you too can make lemonade out of the lemons of life. Astrology inspires creative, out-of-this-world thinking.
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.

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.
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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
