Life in Your Stars is run by seasoned astrologer & writer, me- Courtney Witt.
As someone who has been amazed with and totally captured by the amazement and wonder of things like astrology, numerology, tarot, and all other types of "magic," I have dedicated quite a lot of my life and energy to learning as much on these topics as I possibly can. I have spent over 20 years watching how the celestial events happening above influenced and direct not just my day to day life, but the lives of everyone else who's birthday I knew, allowing life itself to provide all of the information I didn't even realize I was looking and asking for. This is one of the many ways Astrology amazes me and is why I've focused my efforts in the area of astrological science.
This is the approach I tend to take when it comes to astrological readings and reports, I like to view astrology as a simple science requiring a good bit of intuition to simply decode that which is actually nothing more than our own personal copy of the proverbial "How to live your best life instruction manual" that people are always saying we aren't born with.
Too often people look for solid, concrete literature--the kind you find in the self help section at Books A Million--try to make some "changes" that never seem to really take root, realize this isn't working and proclaim with certainty that it would be so much easier if only they'd been born with an instruction manual for life. We each are born under very specific cosmic and vibrational conditions, these are the conditions that shape the path of our life and the volumes of information and guidance on how to live the best life possible for you are stored in the energy and patterns of the planetary energies and written in your natal chart the moment you are born into this lifetime.
Through the years I have worked primarily as an astrologer for a large online astrology website, providing readings for large numbers of clients daily with the "pot" from which readers could draw customers from never running low, many of which were return clients who had more points left to continue with an extended report. Many of these clients became more like friends as we worked through their tough life issues and calls to seek next-level guidance at whatever point in life they were currently at, by utilizing all of the inherent guidance held within the stars. For a young astrologer wanting to work from home, this was the ultimate "holy grail' of freelancing, and at points it felt like accepting a great responsibility and honor being placed in the position to help people AND fine tune my skills in an environment full of really skilled and knowledgeable astrologers, most of whom I still have mad respect for.
I mention this because this "About" page isn't intended to really be all about me. It's kind of like an informal resume, and it's where you can decide whether or not you plan on reading my astrological musings and opinions of fact.
The experience I got working online with an up and coming company with such a high demand for readings was invaluable to my skill level now. It did not come easy to complete readings with enough quickness to warrant making this my full time job (moving from a really good job...you know, the super stable and satisfying kind with good benefits), but being the hard-core Virgo that I am, I figured out how to excel and learn everything I needed to learn to make the job work. So I did that & it was great. My knowledge and skill level really improved LOTS during this 18 months.
After a few months, I suppose after I became a bit faster with readings, and after expressing the point that I was really a writer, not so much an "online psychic," I started writing some really killer astrology articles and lengthy year long horoscopes that people really, really loved. Here I am, new kid on the block, and people like my readings and my articles and horoscopes more than was expected and after some good old fashioned "virtual office drama" it became clear that I wasn't where I needed to be any longer and so I moved on. Sun square Uranus and BOOM! Time to move on.
Since all of that (2016) I have worked as a ghost writer on a series of astrological compatibility books which was an amazing opportunity to utilize my skills and knowledge to supplement at home income and still allow me to learn TONS while working on the project. During this time my readings became much more intensive and detailed, and my level of astrological knowledge increased.
It is around this time, too, that I began to receive inquiries through social media looking for a reading from me, personally....I still remember sitting in the lobby of the gym, waiting for my youngest son to finish up with his gymnastics class--thinking about changing my plan because I wasn't sure how to maintain my writing with the other life changes that were thrust upon us when my grandmother died--when I got the first message from a stranger asking if I gave astrology readings...This was one of those moments in life where you simply cannot ignore the message being hurled your way!
It has taken a lot of time to get to the point where I think I'll actually keep up with a blog and getting back into offering readings and reports, but here we are!
I'll be setting up and fixing social media connections and getting the blog filled more with astrological information...Working on setting aside time for horoscopes, as well. My main focus at present is going to be content and connecting with readers seeking astrological guidance.
