Hi, I’m Vanessa Couto.
Astrological Coach and Artist.
One of my core beliefs is that we are all midwives to each others’ dreams.
I’m passionate about helping individuals who want to better understand who they are, while learning how to navigate life’s thresholds towards creating a more purposeful and meaningful life.
By weaving elements from archetypal astrology, depth psychology, storytelling, dreamwork and art in my coaching and mentoring approach, I help my clients broaden their understanding of their life’s story, and view the path ahead with more clarity and confidence.
Life is a journey, and your astrological birth chart is your road map.
Why not learn its message?
Let’s Journey Together
The Road Ahead
Understanding your Inner Landscape for 2018
2017 is wrapping up, and this is a great time to do the year in review, but also the year ahead reflection.
Every new year brings with it excitement, but also a desire to finally do what we’ve been dreaming about for quite some time. A new year is a blank page where we can rewrite our stories.
When planets move into different signs and elements, we are collectively called to – there’s no better way to say it – grow up. 2018 will push our flexibility buttons because it is a year of RECLAIMING OUR SOVEREIGNTY.
Mapping your Inner Landscape
During this session we journey together to uncover the main themes of your birth chart, your growing edges, and how to best make use of the energies of now to help your journey forward.
Not matter if this your first time, or if you have had your birth chart done many times, this session is an insightful conversation to help you gain a different perspective and clarity at this stage of your life’s heroic journey.
Reclaiming our Sovereignty
An archetypal and symbolic journey – starting January 2018
2018 is a year for us to reclaim our sovereignty.
In this course, we aim to explore the theme of sovereignty through mythology and archetypal astrology.
This course is an exploration of the planetary shifts, the stories that surround an aspect of the Goddess of Sovereignty, and how this is playing out in our own lives.
Together we will explore in more depth the planetary archetypes with the focus on understanding how we can best engage with these energies.
Diving Deeper Sessions
A deeper conversation and exploration of where you are on your life’s journey
During the Diving Deeper sessions, we will journey together for 3 sessions scheduled within a month, to explore in more depth relevant themes around your soul’s purpose and career (your livelihood).
The focus of this 3-session bundle is to help you gain perspective, pivot and take steps towards one of life’s sacred inquiries: Soul Purpose and how it weaves with our ability to birth a more meaningful livelihood that takes into account the expression of all spokes of your life’s wheel.
Bringing your Birth Chart Mandala to Life
There’s something very special about having a personalized art piece that captures the essence of your Birth Chart.
It makes it come alive with color and vibrancy. It’s also a symbolic reminder of your own heroic journey in this life.
Each piece is meticulously designed to invoke the main themes of your Birth Chart Mandala – your Temenos – the holy ground of your psyche.
This is a great package when you want a personalized art piece that is aligned with your soul’s story as represented by your Birth Chart. It’s also a wonderful gift for a loved one.
Vanessa is like the smart gal’s guide to life and the universe.
