Today we’d like to introduce you to Martha Clarke.
Martha , let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started astrology out of the blue. I had moved to Italy to develop my career as a photographer and contacted my business coach as after eight months; photography still was not working the way I intended. I had been studying astrology formally for several months and she suggested I put a free mini offer in a women’s Facebook group. I did and was booked out within half an hour. 50% of the clients booked paid consultations and it went from there!
From the start, thanks to the internet, my business was international, with clients in Australia, Europe and the USA and Canada. I moved back to Ireland in October 2016 to develop and put more structure around my practice and start teaching.
In October 2017 I moved to Boston where Mars trines my Midheaven, which is all about getting things done! Your Midheaven is the highest point of aspiration in your chart and refers to your true vocation.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Juggling time zones. Often a one or a five hour time difference can be much more challenging than eight hours!
In Australia, SKYPE and the internet are often of poor quality so at the beginning I had many hair raising consultations! Thankfully ZOOM is much better and I now use ZOOM all the time.
In Ireland people are quite private about having been to an astrologer, whereas in the USA clients tell to tell everyone, which is much better for me!
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Martha Clarke Astrology – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I interpret client’s natal birth charts. Your natal birth chart is a snapshot of what your souls came into this lifetime to experience and learn. I specialize in family charts and love more than anything helping parents understand their children more through having a deeper understanding of their birth chart.
I am most proud of having had the courage to cross the Atlantic seven months ago to develop my face to face client base in the USA!
What sets me apart is the depth of my own life experience, which I draw on heavily to help clients struggling with changes in their own life. I help them see what their soul came into this lifetime to learn and experience and help them share this knowledge of themselves with others, to help them maintain a deeper connection.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I am looking forward to doing embodiment workshops which is where you literally step into your own astrological birth chart and intuitively learn more about the planetary patterns in your natal chart.
It is profound, deep, and intensely and immediately healing.
I am also looking forward to working more online and to running online seminars and running a monthly astrology Facebook group called Astrology Souls which will delve into current planetary patterns and energies.
