Katherine now even schedules her week according to her guidance, refusing to work on Mondays because she is ‘ruled by the moon’.

Now working as a full-time astrologer under the name Moon Muse, she lives her life by following her intuition and letting astrology guide her.

Katherine, who lives in Newcastle with her partner, admits she has had a “quite torturous” experience in life, not knowing what she wanted to do after studying at Sydney University.

After spending time traveling, she worked in the fashion industry in New York with big names like Vogue before deciding to study law and work in the corporate sector.

“After the first semester of law, I knew I wasn’t going to be a lawyer,” Katherine said, yet she continued to work at a national law firm for years.

When ‘corporate life kicked in’, she realized it wasn’t for her and took a further energy healing diploma.

After working as a digital content manager, she decided to quit her 9-5 job and become a full-time astrologer.

Katherine had been practicing astrology as a hobby for 15 years when she decided the corporate world was not for her.

Katherine had been a part of the mystical world for years at the time, often reading tarot cards to her friends and sharing astrology content online.

“No day looks the same,” she said of her life as a full-time astrologer, adding that she follows her intuition.

Her days include doing readings, creating content, recording her podcast, and sometimes hosting events like lunar ceremonies.

In addition to following your intuition, let astrology dictate your day to day.

“I don’t work on Mondays because they are ruled by the moon, so I let the creativity flow,” he said, explaining that each day of the week is ruled by a different planet and therefore has a different energy.

An Astrologer’s Guide to the Days of the Week:

* Mondays are ruled by the moon. The Moon rules your emotions, which is why you may feel more sensitive on Monday, making it a day for self-care rather than work.

“Actually, I didn’t believe in (astrology) when I was young,” the astrologer admitted.

She explained that learning about birth charts helped her understand the concept, after not ‘resonating’ with the typical horoscope.

Each person has a unique birth chart, which is based on the place, time, and date of birth.

“Your birth chart is a screenshot of the moment you were born, it shows the potential of the soul,” he said.

The astrologer did not believe in astrology until she learned more about the concept and began to understand her natal chart.

Katherine is an intuitive astrologer, which means she helps people interpret their astrology and answer life questions using their own intuition. Since 2018 she has also been a life coach.

She believes many people ‘dismiss’ astrology because they are only used to reading horoscopes, but says it can be used as a ‘tool for self-discovery’.

“Astrology is a beautiful tool to look at someone’s soul plane or the cosmic plane,” he said.

She’s not trying to change the minds of skeptics, but just offering her advice for interested people.

Her favorite part of the job is ‘helping people live their potential’ and step into the ‘reality of their dreams’.

‘The reality of everyone’s dreams is different. It really is about knowing what is the true reality of people and what they want, ”he said.

The astrologer said she doesn’t have a favorite part of the job because she’s living her dream.

“It’s financially viable, but it’s a commitment, to be financially successful and to have a viable business you have to show up every day,” he said.

“Saying that a lot of opportunities seem to magically come my way,” she added, explaining that she balances the line between going out and looking for what she wants and trusting the process.

Katherine’s New Astrology podcast ‘it’s a sign‘ with LiSTNR is a 90 second astrology snippet that runs Monday through Friday.

According to Katherine, the podcast can “help people demystify astrology,” charting lunar and planetary transits and explaining to listeners how these changes translate to their everyday lives.

“It offers a daily look at what’s happening in the heavens and how we can take small, practical steps to be more in tune with the cosmic rhythm,” he said.

‘By learning to align your week with the cosmos, you can get into a rhythm and flow that would otherwise go untapped. Astrological information distilled and delivered through simple practical advice can have a profound effect on people’s lives.”

“We teach people that there is more to astrology than regular Sun sign horoscopes and that they themselves are incredibly unique, just like their birth chart. With a shift in consciousness (the listener) can take steps to live their best and most aligned life.’
