Maria DeSimone

Astrology expert and contributing writer

Through her teachings, Astrology expert Maria DeSimone helps her clients manifest their greatest positive qualities and potential, while also addressing some of the deeper psychological obstacles that might currently prevent soul growth.

As a certified astrologer with a B.A. in psychology, Maria is able to blend Insightful Astrology in a humanistic and practical manner -- addressing real life concerns -- while also encouraging clients to embrace the more metaphysical teachings and influences of Astrology.

"I’ve always been drawn to the often buried, inner realm of the human mind and the mysteries of our universe.," DeSimone said. "From a young age, I also developed a love for expressing my thoughts on paper -- especially the buried ones."

DeSimone has always been certain she would have a career as a writer or a psychologist, but when a series of life events pulled her into Astrology she was awakened to embrace her true life direction. Now it all fits, and her background in psychology and love of communication are natural complements to her unique profession as a counseling astrologer.

DeSimone's work is geared toward teaching others how Astrology can be a rich tool used for self development and empowerment. By interpreting what she calls “the blueprint of your soul” she is able to help people manifest their greatest positive qualities and potential, while also addressing some of the deeper psychological obstacles that might prevent soul growth.

In addition to writing for DailyHoroscope.com, DeSimone has a private practice in New York, she runs the website InsightfulAstrology.com and she serves as the Vice President for the Long Island, New York chapter of the National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR), one of the leading professional astrology organizations.

"Every day I wake up with this amazing sense of joy and enthusiasm for what I do," she said. "I’m blessed to have found my calling in life and I know I’m one of the few people on this Earth who can honestly say that my work is my passion."

Within the first 10 minutes of a session I usually uncover at least one deep short circuit that somehow blocks my client from moving forward in his or her personal development. continued »

As the Sun moves into Sagittarius on November 22, we'll enter the final month of fall and begin preparing for winter -- but first comes Thanksgiving. Sagittarius rules travel and religion, and represents freedom. It is highly appropriate Thanksgiving falls during Sagittarius Sun time, as it celebrates the culmination of the ultimate travel to unknown territory by people seeking freedom -- freedom to fulfill their religious beliefs without fear of retribution. And, of course, it's a time of feasting, giving thanks and gathering with friends and family. ... continued »
