Hi, I'm Veronica Dornsmith, a Therapeutic Astrologer that specializes in Shadow Work and healing through validation of your Soul's mission. I help Truth Seekers like yourself find clarity on their life's purpose and strengthen their personal power through my astrological and empathic abilities.
I am here to help guide you into embracing your most powerfully vulnerable and authentic Self, as well as help free you from the heavy shackles of victim-hood, shame and shoulds keeping you from this true self expression.
Why am I able to do this? Because I've lived it. Transforming my heavy, stuck 'Lead' into shiny 'Gold' over and over again, has been the name of the game for me in this life. To give you a taste, here are a few of my many Alchemic Rebirths:
1 - I have been a healer / counselor my whole life (South Node, Saturn AND Pluto in my Scorpio 6th, so this life and many others too no less), and have embodied the full gamut of that Archetype too.
From my early days of befriending (and sometimes dating) every stray Soul who was completely enmeshed in their own victim story (because I was too - life is only and ever a hall of mirrors after all), and being completely overwhelmed by literally everyone, to learning how to have BOUNDARIES with people and channel my natural gifts into a business that helps only the most highly evolved Souls who are genuinely ready to put in the work to heal.
2 - I have been a professional astrologer for over a decade, and have embodied the full gamut of that Archetype too.
From the early days of giving anyone who wanted one a full reading for pocket change (see previous lack of boundaries and bleeding heart tenancies), to finally one day owning the fact that my skills are far more profound and rare than your average bear.
(This was a thought that was very hard for my Pisces Self to own - 'No no! We're all equal! I'm no one special' my 'selfless' ego wailed - until I realized that the TRUE selfless act was to claim my power and magic already so that I could help a larger audience).

Because of these (and many other) transformations, my growth has allowed me the honor and privilege of teaching my hard won wisdom to clients and students from around the world so as to help them on their unique, individual journeys into wholeness.
"Every once in a while something will come into your life, and forever after you are transformed by it. For me, this something was Astrology.
I feel like the knowledge and understanding I have of this medium was Divinely given to me, but the trade off was I was meant to share it. And not just with others, but also with myself. The depths of knowledge I have found from analyzing my own chart, has healed me in ways I didn't even know were broken.
There are very few things that bring me more joy than to see this same transformation in others. What a gift that I get to share this powerful, healing tool with the world."
Meet the Rest of the Soul Map Mandala Team!
Kim is a FANTASTIC Astrologer (as well as a Holistic Therapist, Psychic Medium, and Tarot Reader). Since I (Veronica) am taking a break from teaching, Kim is stepping up as Lead Teacher, and I couldn't be more excited!
With her Masters degree in teaching, background in theater, and phenomenal understanding of Astrology, she was a natural for the job. Plus, she's a previous graduate of the Astrology School! So you know she's coming prepared :)
Kim will be teaching the Soul Map Mandalas' Astrology School, along with some of the weekend Workshops.
I'm so excited to have Kim as a part of the SMM team!
