I'm Veronica Dornsmith, owner of Soul Map Mandalas. I am a professional Therapeutic Astrologer that specializes in Shadow Work and Healing. I help Divine Creatrix Beings 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' self into my so-bright-it-hurts 'Gold' self 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 an artist my whole life, and have embodied the full gamut of that Archetype.
From my early jaded, starving artist period where I was endlessly mad at all those 'sell outs' ruining art (so 'real' and edgy!), to getting over myself and in the end owning my own gallery and showing my work in galleries all over Europe.
2 - I have been a counselor and therapist my whole life (South Node, Saturn AND Pluto in my Scorpio 6th, so this life and many others 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.
3 - 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 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." -Veronica
The Rest of the Soul Map Mandala Team
Aaron Dornsmith, my husband, is a profound, modern day Renaissance Man who has studied and researched not only Astrology for half his life, but also Hermetic Wisdom, Philosophy and Tarot (to name a few) while also being a practicing Architect and Photographer.
Aaron is the instructor and creator of the newly created 'Divine Masculine Course' (which the world is so in need of right now!) as well as the host for the Sacred Physics of Astrology Lectures.
He is what is known as an 'Astrologer's Astrologer,' (aka his wisdom has evolved into the realm of philosophy and is best understood by those already well immersed in Astrological studies). Listening to one of his Astrology lectures is like getting a direct download from cosmic intelligence!
It's no less than a gift to your Soul to experience this amazing being firsthand.
Denise Clair is a master Astrologer, having studied this ancient art for 50+ years, while also being trained in Reiki, Counseling and Voyager Tarot to name a few.
Her Intuitive Readings are channeled from Higher Sources, which combining that with the beautiful human energy she radiates that wisdom through, makes her presence and gifts truly an experience.
Denise is in fact MY astrology mentor, and I am honored to have her as part of the Soul Map Mandala Team, as well as a dear friend on this journey through life.
Denise is the main East Coast facilitator of the various Astrology workshops I've created over the years, as well as continues to offer her legendary Readings through her private practice.
Mike Ryan is a recent graduate of my Astrology School, and is so impressive with his understanding of Astrology that I have recently hired him on as an assistant teacher of my Astrology classes!
Mike shares my mission of helping people heal through empowerment, deep validation and 'seen-ness,' and does this not only through giving powerful Astrology Readings, but also through his transformative Body and Movement Work.
Some of Mike's areas of expertise include yoga, yoga nidra, primal movement patterns, breath-work, Thai body-work, energy-work, as well as his recently earned expertise in evolutionary astrology.
