“I hope everything is going well! I have been thinking about you and all of the things you told me when we last saw each other often. Moving to this city has been a big change, but your words and wisdom have helped to ground me through it all. Also, a lot of your predictions have been dead-on in ways I would never have imagined! I would love to tell you all about it!” — Bo

“Thank you for giving it to me straight and for giving me so much to think about.”
“The next day after speaking to you I felt so much lighter and freer. I don’t know how you did it exactly but you made it possible for me to look at my feelings, handle them, think about them and then put them away in box. Up until then I just felt swamped by them. Now I’m working on my new plan and feeling very happy.”
“Wonderful meeting you Anne, thank you for a fantastic reading, can’t wait to get my recording and report. See you again soon!” All my best — Jonathon

WELLLLLLL it all happened!! Anywho, you are a star and you are an amazing astrologer. Thanks again. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE .”— Lori M
“I found myself in an unforgiving situation regarding work, and all I wanted to do was harmonize with the Universe’s plan instead of trying to change it…but I needed verification.
You blew me away with your ability to see the course I’d plotted for myself, and you explained my situation in astonishing detail. At one point, I remember saying, “I feel like you’re reading my mind!” To which you replied, “I’m reading your chart!” We laughed a lot during our session.
But your reading covered so much more than just my job. You also explained things that have perplexed me my entire life. I have clarity on so many levels about things that I never understood until now.
One issue you helped immensely with was finances. My husband and I were in the process of refinancing our home, and I asked you if it looked like it would go through. You said, “yes – but you’ll probably have to re-do some paperwork.” It was good to know that, because as the do-overs began, we didn’t stress. Over the course of the next 30 days, however, the amount of do-overs became surprising, then alarming, then just flat-out laughable. We were asked to verify things that clearly made no sense.
You helped us through the grueling process, and yesterday we went to sign the papers.
We got such great terms on this loan that I asked the title company officer how the process would have gone if we had had one black mark on our credit. In other words, “if this is how it goes for people with perfect credit – how does it go for everyone else?” His reply was interesting: “It would have been much shorter,” he said, “we would have denied you long ago.”
When we were ready to give up, your words kept us on course. I’m sure we would have lost our way, had you not given us such a clear picture of how it would unfold. Thank you again and again for your unique talents in Astrology. Your service truly is priceless!” — Deb F.
“I have done a couple of readings with you in the past, and in one of them you told me that I would get married again, and that this would be the ‘kid wife’. At the time I was going through a divorce and getting married again was not on my radar.
Well, fast forward a few years, and here we are. I’m engaged, and my fiancee and I are planning our wedding. Good call Anne! Which leads me to the reason for my email: can you help me determine which day would be most fortuitous for our upcoming wedding day? Hope all is well in your world! Thanks again, Anne.”
“If you ask a person: Who do people go to in order to help them understand the mental and behavioral cycles effecting the decisions they make? Most would probably answer a Psychologist before an Astrologer. Which is why when I heard Anne Ortelee refer to herself as a “watcher of cycles” she caught my attention. Yes, Psychologists do study and interpret the patterns of human behaviors, but maybe an Astrologer is able to take it one step further. By going straight to the source, and observing the Governors of human cycles, the planets themselves. Don’t believe the planets are the one’s in charge of humanity? Have Anne do a reading for you. Her accuracy will stir your emotions as she reveals personality traits and significant events that have defined who you are. And unlike a psychologist, she can do this before ever even meeting you, because it’s already been written in our astrological charts.
Every week Anne reports on the “aspects from the sky” and how we can “align ourselves with them instead of fighting against it”. She often uses examples in the patterns unfolding within the nature closer to home: earth’s fruits, trees, flowers, water, vegetables, seasons. These analogies reminded me of the wisdom in eastern philosophies that uses references to nature as a means for gaining insight into Self and Life. These kind of connections can be especially useful, for the moments when we think spiritual knowledge is beyond us, low and behold, there it is playing out in the very environment we live in.
This week I was finally able to do a phone session with Anne, and it was everything I hoped it would be. One thing I’ve noticed about the indications that a person can have spiritual significance for you, is when what they say happens to answer a question that you haven’t asked anyone but God. I wasn’t surprised that this happened for me as I talked with Anne about my astrological chart. What’s interesting though, is right after my session with Anne I found myself suddenly wanting to listen to “Pink Moon” by Nick Drake. I know this sounds random, but if you know that everything happens for a reason, you become curious when these internal suggestions surface. So I did a quick google search of the symbolism of a Pink Moon and found out that it connected to everything Anne had told me about the role of my sun sign Scorpio being here to help people with endings, death, and transformation. Pink Moons are a sign of the Apocalypse which I can’t think of any larger event known for death, endings, and transformation. I am still marinating on the significance of many of things she saw in my chart.
People say, “God works in mysterious ways” but maybe God’s wit is just above our heads. Astrologers like Anne Ortelee are right there keeping up with God’s wit, watching and interpreting the planets as they spin mysteriously in synchronicity with the cycles we’re living in. For me all the alignments within my phone session were comforting. They were a reminder of our innate connection to that bigger plan, God’s plan. I think if more Astrologers were like Anne, they could even transform the role of psychologists into a “Cycle-Ologists” – someone who instead of earning a master degree from the still evolving human Universities, masters their understanding of the planetary degrees influencing us in the largest school of all, the universe of Life. This can get even deeper if we look at our solar system, as being directly connected to the karma of our souls, especially if we spell it soular system, and see it as a dial for the time given to work out the actions we have or haven’t taken in our Life.” — Mali
“It was awesome seeing you yesterday. Your insights are really valued by Dan and I. I am sure we will be chatting soon.” — Michael V.
“During our last consultation, you pointed out that I had a very strong past life connection with my boyfriend. We have a finger of god in our synastry and it has something to do with his fear of me leaving him for academic exchange, as well as my fear of losing him if I left for exchange. You suggested that I dig deeper into the past life stuff and ask the guides for a dream. I took your advice and had a past life regression done. It was pretty amazing. I didn’t exactly see who we were. But the regression took me to a pivotal point in our relationship in a past life. It was during the middle ages and we had a secret affair. We had planned to elope together during the night by boat but were caught. I saw us kneeling in front of the king in a dungeon and surrounded by friars. Later he was executed by hanging on the gallows but he sacrificed his life for me to live. I’m thinking it had a lot of religious overtones because of the friars, and it was kept very hush hush because of the dungeon. I find that fascinating because one leg of our finger of god is in sagittarius which rules religion, and the apex (his chiron) is in taurus which rules the neck right? Anyways, the emotions i experienced were extremely powerful right before the execution took place and the guards were trying to separate us and I started sobbing during the session. Take care.” — Luyi

This week was particularly potent and encouraging. I actually had tears of relief streaming down my face as I read… (not the first time one of your forecasts has made me cry!)
The last year of my life has been extremely challenging and FULL of lessons from the Universe. Without even knowing it, you have been an enormous source of comfort, clarity, and inspiration to me…
Anyway, just wanted to say thank you so much for doing what you do.”

“Your weekly weather has given me the strength to go on. I have been feeling quite unable to go on caring for my beloved, deserving and wonderful, but also elderly and needy, parents in the last week, and this week the feeling has got unbearable. Now I know why (the culmination of the cardinal cross) and I can let the guilt and negative feelings go, because this too will pass. Thanks for all the advice and direction your columns have given me over the years.” — Judy C.
“I just want to thank you for what you do for free for us ‘out here’ in cyberspace. I love your images and metaphors and good plain old-fashioned advice. My life circumstances – as those of many others, I suspect have been so well delineated in your weeklies, I feel like I have a psychic friend who is helping me to traverse my path. And your upbeat tone, when possible! and little funnies really make a positive difference. And your examples, like poor Mel (Gibson) help too. Compassion and humor will get us through a helluva lot.” — Sabina
“Thanks for the laugh this morning. After reading the section in your weekly weather about Neptune invoking the energy of February 8, I looked back in my journal to refresh my memory. I was buried under the snowpocalypse dreamscape! There was an epiphany, though, that I recorded in my journal then and I’m very glad your column prompted me to look back. None of my usual people showed up to dig me out, eventually I had to come to the realization that no one was coming to rescue me, and that “I was the one I was waiting for.” — Cath P.
“I wanted to take a minute to tell you how very much I enjoy your column. I’ve been reading it for a couple of years now but I’ve never written before.

I like to read it on Sunday to get an idea of what the week could hold. Your time and effort is very much appreciated.” — Deb
“I came across your newsletter through the Linda Goodman Forum, and I just wanted to say that rarely have I read such a useful tool.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience!” — Erika
