The stars are calling you.
Hi, I'm Sara (she/her),your cosmic guide to finding your path through the forest of your soul. I believe that astrology is more than knowing what's coming our way; it's a tool for slowing down, aligning with the wheel of the year, and, most importantly, uncovering more about who we are.
Align your heart
The name "Bella deLuna" doesn't have a ton of significance, even though interestingly it translates to 'beautiful moon'. I came up with the name in 2006, long before I began a career in astrology. The logo I use, however, does have significance.
Although the design has changed over the years, my logo has always been an owl.
Owls have been seen as messengers of wisdom throughout the ages. In Roman society, Owls were seen as harbingers of death when they hooted perched on a roof. It was also believed that if you placed an owl feather near someone while the slept, that person would speak and reveal their secrets.
In Greek mythology, Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom & War, had an owl called Glaux, which means 'the little owl.' The little owl represents hindsight, the source of Athena's wisdom. German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel said that "the owl of Minerva spreads its wings only with the falling of the dusk' (Minerva is the Roman equivalent of Athena).
Just like we only have the complete picture and understanding of the situation in hindsight, we can only look back and see the pieces of ourselves that we've lost after we've traveled down our road for some time. We come into this world whole and with knowledge of who we are. But we lose that knowledge over time as society and family mold and shape us. Our true life's goal, beyond the 9 to 5 and house with a picket fence, is to retrace our steps, align with our soul's true desires, claim our power, and find our path.
Claim your power
I view astrology as a framework for giving ourselves the permission we seek to slow down, live more in tune with nature, and nourish our souls with indulgent self-care. My mission in life is to turn practical tools into magical guidance for deepening your relationship with yourself, like my Soul Care Planner.
Find your path
Just like the little owl, we have the gift of hindsight. We can look back at our path, reflect and integrate, and then decide where we want to go from here. As your cosmic guide to finding your path through the forest of your soul, I'm here to guide you and give you all the tools you need to rediscover what you came into this world knowing: who you are.
Astrology has always been a love of mine, and I have forever been fascinated by the stars and planets and their cosmic dance in the sky.
