Kay Taylor

Kay Taylor

LEVEL: Mixed Level Mentorship Group

Whether launching a new practice, or expanding as a professional, I have a proven track record leading annual mentoring programs through my Soul Path School and with the OPA program. I love supporting astrologers to be more successful than they’d ever imagined. My focus for mentoring is to help you find your unique strengths, develop authentic branding, website and social media presence, develop clientele, and cultivate a habit of organized business planning.

I have an MBA in Finance, had a successful corporate career, and have launched several successful entrepreneurial businesses over the years. For astrologers who are more experienced I will guide you on the path of becoming an author, teacher, or lecturer. I believe cultivating a balance between work, relationships, self-care and living a conscious life are also part of success, so we’ll also explore the full picture of your life. As a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, I will offer powerful guided meditative processes (live and recorded) to help you break through unconscious blockages to success. Together we will create an encouraging, nurturing environment to support you in creating the astrology business uniquely suited to your gifts and goals.

Learning how to construct your astrology business based on understanding yourself, your chart, and your mission.

Ideally, participants can attend live and add to the mentorship dynamic, but classes are recorded and can be sent to participants. There’s homework with feedback, no grades. The homework is to ensure that key concepts and ideas are being grasped. No way to know if the mentee is making progress if they don’t do the homework.

Maurice Fernandez Bio
Maurice’s approach unites the spiritual with the material, using astrology holistically to address practical and existential questions. My practice has extended across all continents and diverse cultures. This exposure has given me a wide understanding of human nature and the nuances and challenges we share. It makes me a better human and a better astrologer. Being involved with The Organization for Professional Astrology since 2010 and serving as president for 3 terms (2014-2020), took me from the more personal, self-employed practice, to the concerns of the larger community. This wider perspective is helpful for the purposes of this mentorship program.

I’m the author of two books (aside from collaborative book projects): Astrology and the Evolution of Consciousness – Volume One Neptune, the 12th house, and Pisces

General Outline of Meetings
Because I can offer such a broad range of activities, the emphasis of the specific areas covered will be established by everyone’s requirements. If you think I have the experience to help your needs, please indicate those needs when you enroll. In addition, I will have some email interaction with you, before the first session. At that first session we will introduce ourselves. Then another round briefly explaining our particular needs which you will have already started to explain in your prior emails. In the subsequent two or three sessions we will read group members and/or client’s charts in turn – possibly in sub-groups, with report backs for further discussion.

The aim will be to provide in-depth support by myself and the group. By the fifth session, we will have touched on most if not all the areas outlined above. So, in the remaining two sessions, we will concentrate in greater depth on priority-needs areas determined by the group.

Together we will create a safe, nurturing space for personal development and business development. Discussions will include reputation and ethics, how to build and keep a client base, branding and advertising, how to begin, continue and conclude a client session, getting feedback and engagement from clients, and how to integrate self-care into your practice.

Moon Zlotnick Bio
I began my astrological studies in 1975 after having a profound spiritual experience. In 1978 I completed the training program created by Zipporah Dobyns through CCRS, after which I opened my first office and began my professional astrology practice. I have been practicing full time since then. I began teaching astrology in 1981 and in 1987, began a three-year training program for students in Minneapolis, MN. I have attended numerous conferences and taken many courses but consider myself self-taught after looking at thousands of horoscopes and working with some clients for 30+ years. I am very psychological and spiritually oriented and practice modern astrology. In 2019 I published my first book: Star Sisters: An Astrologers’ Memoir of Twin Loss. I am currently working on my second book, “Death Charts: Using Astrology to Help those Recovering from Loss.” https://AstrologyByMoonRabbit.com/
