Meet Charlotte Lauren ~ the Astrologer, Moonologer, and Holistic Mentor
Hi, I’m Charlotte
My own holistic path began in my mid-twenties after receiving an incredible reflexology and reiki treatment that profoundly changed the course of my life. Feeling anxious, and stuck in a soul-sucking job, I’d been yearning to do something different and complementary therapy was calling me, loudly! I decided to leave my job in London to retrain as a Holistic Therapist.
Moving from a job in a city to back with my parents and studying at an FE college hadn’t been the plan, but with hindsight it was like I had to start on the wrong path to eventually end up back on the right one!
Fast forward 17 years and I haven’t looked back. I’ve met people from all walks of life and trained with some amazing practitioners. My work enabled me to build a private practice as well as working in cancer care and integrated medical settings, specialising in Ayurvedic massage, reflexology and reiki.
My journey with the cosmos…
When I reflect on it, my journey into working with the stars and the moon began with a deep interest in astrology from an early age, but it wasn’t until I spent some years managing the symptoms of post-viral Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that I noticed a correlation with my own energy levels at different points in the lunar cycle. I then began to look at the lunar connection to intuition, emotion and the divine feminine, and so began a deep personal interest in working with the moon. After studying for a diploma in moon magic and a certification in Moonology, sharing this with others has become a bit of a mission!
In 2021 I decided to take the plunge and widen my knowledge by studying Hellenistic Astrology (ancient astrology). Learning this beautiful, ancient craft continues to be a fascinating journey, and one which has been quite honestly life changing on a personal and professional level. Living in tune with nature’s cycles has always been important to me but learning Hellenistic astrology has made following the wheel of the year even more special. I love to weave the magic of the two together and this naturally infuses my work with clients.
As a practitioner I’ve got my feet both firmly on the ground and my eyes on the cosmos! This is reflected in my style of astro mentoring – grounded but always open to what treasures the universe is ready to reveal to us.
When I don’t have my head in the stars, I love being by the sea, writing poetry and spending time with my hubby and our big fluffball, Chester the cat. I live in Bristol and feel very lucky to have the West Country on my doorstep.
But, enough of me! I’d like to hear about you… And even if we never meet, I hope something in my words has sparked your imagination or interest.
With love and lunar light,
