I was first exposed to astrology when I was eight years old. I was reading through a newspaper, and I saw the horoscope section. I saw all these little pictures and asked my mom what the pictures meant. She explained that it was the horoscope section. She explained that every person has their own sign, and I wanted to know what sign I was. She told me that I am a Virgo. Those words, "You are a Virgo" was the biggest mystery to me ever. I had to know what it meant. From 8 years old I started reading astrology books. At the age of 16, I had easily read about 30 astrology books from start to finish. At the age of 18, I had basically memorized all the traits of all the signs and memorized the entire working of reading a natal chart. I was incredibly passionate about astrology, but growing up in a conservative family everyone told me that I should not pursue astrology as a career. They told me it would most likely not work out and I would be a failure. They said people who pursue things like astrology in careers never make anything of themselves. So obviously, listening to this, I decided not to pursue astrology as a career because I was way too fearful due to what everybody was telling me. I just started working in the workforce. In my spare time, I would still research everything I can about astrology. I then started to apply astrology to my day-to-day life. When I started meeting people I would be able to guess their signs and people were shocked by this. I started going even deeper, I started to guess people's rising signs, Moon signs, Mars's, and their Venus's. I started to notice the traits in specific people that are in relation to astrology from what I have learned. I could see it all around me all the time. After a while, even though I was working a full-time job, I was still applying astrology for every single interaction I had with every person. I think that I actually irritated so many people because all I would talk about to them is astrology. I started doing casual readings for people when I was 16 years old, but I never charged people for these readings as I felt that my level and my skill was not really on par yet to be able to charge people. I then worked a crazy demanding corporate job where I sat behind a desk behind a computer screen typing all day working for a corporate company. It really started to destroy my soul. The reason for this is because I don't believe in the concept of capitalism and corporate greed. It was so painful for me to work in a corporate industry and in the system because I don't really believe in the system. I am very against the regime. I believe that we need to work for ourselves, and we shouldn't be forced by rules and regulations that are set out by corporate companies that restrict us. So after a point when I was working, I realized that this is not what I want to be doing for the rest of my life. I cannot work for someone else. I cannot work in an office, and I cannot also work in the corporate industry that basically just feeds off of greed and taking people's money. I saw a lot of unethical things, and I did not want to be part of it. I reached a point where I was extremely depressed. I was depressed every single day, and I did not know what to do. I spoke to a friend of mine, and he asked me why I am so upset, I explained to him that my passion is astrology. I love astrology; it is my entire universe, but I do not think that I could actually make a career out of it. My biggest fear was that I would have to keep working in this corporate industry for the rest of my life, and I would never really be able to pursue my passion. On that day this friend of mine said to me, but you will make it work why don't you just do it. At that moment, I realized well why don't I just try. A few days after I had that conversation with my friend. I created my first Fiverr gig, where I would do natal chart video readings, and it took about three months for me to get my first order. I lost all hope I was like no, it's not going to work. No one's going to be interested in buying readings, and I just basically gave up hope. Then I got my first Fiverr order, and because I hadn't set up my notifications on my phone, I had an hour left to deliver a reading. I don't know if you guys know how Fiverr works, it works on a timer, and when your time runs out and the delivery is late, you get penalized. So, I had one hour to deliver this reading. I literally filmed my entire reading in one hour and delivered it to this person. After that, I started seeing an influx of people ordering readings and actual opportunities being created for me to pursue my passion. For about a year and a half, I was working a full-time corporate job and doing astrology on the side. I was pleased to be able to do part-time astrology work. However, it got to a point where the amount of work that came in for me on the astrology side was so much that I could no longer focus on my corporate job. I then decided to leave my corporate job and take the dive and go straight into astrology headfirst. I did that, and now I am swimming. The reason I started in Ellastrology is because years ago, I was incredibly unhappy. I had no answers. I didn't know what to do, and I had no people actually motivating me to pursue my dream and my goal. The feeling of not knowing what to do and not having answers and not having anyone to talk to and to encourage me was one of the worst feelings that I've ever felt in my life. Through these feelings, I decided that I wanted to pursue astrology as my life path and help people find themselves. I want to help people know themselves and understand themselves so that they can find the answers to the questions that they have. I had a lot of questions. I was very confused until I started practicing astrology. I started looking into astrology, and a lot of things started making sense to me. The purpose of Ellastrology is to help people become aware of themselves and to help them move towards their destiny and life path. Ellastrology creates content for professional astrologers, including written content, horoscopes, blog posts, and video production. On the personal side of Ellastrology we do natal chart readings, and the focus of these natal chart readings is on your life path and on your destiny. Ellastrology readings focus on helping you understand yourself and your inner emotional nature and also coming to understand and realize what your actual destiny and your life path is. My vision was for Ellastrology to be incredibly versatile. Although I do focus a lot on the life path in readings, I also do focus on synastry, progressed, transit astrology, and solar return. Astrology has also been a fantastic creative avenue for me. I am a writer and I love writing, and it's always been difficult for me to write about the things I love. Ever since I started writing about astrology for myself and for clients, I found an avenue where I can freely express my creative writing.
