About Marina Ormes
I’m Marina Ormes and I've been using astrology as a tool for transformation for over 30 years.
I love how the natural cycles and rhythms of astrology provide us with a template for getting the most out of each day and manifesting the things we want.
When I first learned astrology I was shocked to discover that it includes cycles that support our healing.
It helps us consciously create the outcomes we want in health, finances, relationships, social and political causes, creative work and projects, and more.
The deepening self-awareness and empowerment that comes from knowing the bigger picture awakens our ability to have experiences in alignment with our soul’s deepest desires.
We are far more powerful than we realize, and astrology is a wonderful tool for helping us achieve our most brilliant, limitless potential.
