Hi, I’m Vanessa Couto.

Astrological Coach and Artist.


I believe we are all midwives to each others’ dreams.

I’m passionate about my work with individuals who want to better understand who they are, while learning how to navigate the thresholds in their journey towards birthing a richer and more purposeful life.

By weaving elements from astrology, depth psychology, dreamwork, mythology and art into my coaching approach, I help my clients broaden their understanding of their life’s story, and view the path ahead with clarity and confidence.

Life is a journey, and your astrological chart is your road map.

Why not learn its message?

Let’s Work Together


By the Light of the Moon

Navigating your emotional landscape


This is a 30-minute recorded session, where we explore your MOON SIGN and your LUNAR PHASE at birth and now. A perfect choice for understanding how the moon cycles affect your emotional ebb and flow, what are your unique emotional needs and how you can best nurture yourself through self-care.

Mapping your Inner Landscape

The Power Session


During this session we journey 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 you on your journey forward. This is a great session for when you need a new perspective, clarity and action items for this moment in your life. Typically, we focus on a presenting issue (i.e. career, business, relationships, etc.) and journey through the birth chart to help you gain clarity, feel empowered and aligned with yourself.

This is also a great session for returning clients who want a semester or annual update.

Birthing your Business

Your heroic journey as an entrepreneur


Did you also know that your business can have its own birth chart?

Your business is its own entity.

It has needs, a personality and a purpose too.

During our sessions, we will work with your own birth chart to tap into its ‘inner marketing committee’.

We will also work on your own business chart to see its potentials, and what is being called forth by it.

This package is ideal if you are starting out on your entrepreneurial journey and you need some clarity on your business ideas, but also how to best finesse and align them with what feels in alignment with you.

But it’s also a great package if you already have started your business, but you feel that something isn’t in alignment, and that you are lacking resonance.

In our work together, we will use astrology to help you delineate a clear and aligned branding and marketing strategy for your own business.

Deep Dive

Astro wisdom to illuminate the threshold crossing


During the Deep Dive, we will journey together for 3 months (90 days), to help you cross your own transformative threshold, and birth a NEW YOU.

A threshold experience often isn’t a clear cut experience.

More often than not, it’s a slow brew, where events around us point to a change in the air. Other times, we may find ourselves looking in the mirror and not recognizing our ‘old’ selves, while the ‘new’ hasn’t quite arrived yet.

At times like this, astrology, dream work and a reframing of our story are tools that help us gain new footing, see events from a wider perspective, and it is also a major confidence booster.

The Deep Dive journey is about gaining a deeper understanding of your story, and how you can best navigate moving from the ‘old’ you to the ‘new’.

During these sessions, astrology will light our pathway, as we weave in psychology, dream work and art.

Art by Nessa

Symbolic astrological art to brighten your home


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. And it’s a symbolic reminder of your own heroic journey in this life.

Each chart design in meticulously designed to invoke the main themes of your birth mandala.

Liminal Forecast


My Liminal Forecast Newsletter is where I weave my musings about the moon’s journey in the skies and other important astrological patterns.

The Moon is a master storyteller and as we follow her ever changing face in the skies, we learn how her story is weaved into our own. Her journey teaches us to reconnect and remember our own natural rhythms.
