What our clients say

I received so much clarity from my reading with Penny. It has given me a renewed sense of understanding about my life, my journey, what I’m here to do and what I’m here to overcome and learn. I feel like I have a road map for my life through understanding myself via Penny’s astrology reading. Highly recommend it for anyone wanting to navigate a more purposeful path.

Sonja, Melbourne

I had an insightful birth chart reading with Penny. She is passionate and clear in her communication and has a very calming influence. She gave me insights into motherhood (including knowing exactly the day my twins would be born), my business and relationships. I found it really helpful and beneficial. I would definitely recommend Penny to anyone looking for clarity and momentum for the future.

Laura, Sydney

If you’ve ever doubted the relevance of astrology, you have to get a reading with Penny! My reading was full of ‘ah-ha’ moments as she led me through my birth chart, giving me insights into my most entrenched patterns and behaviours. Loads of laughs and a few cringes! I came away with pages of notes and a checklist of really tangible things that I can (and need to) do to let go of habits that have been holding me back, and move towards my goals. Thanks, Penny!!
