About Kathryn Andren
Kathryn Andren “The Love Astrologer” passionately shares her consulting and holistic healing practice from a deep connection to to land, sea and sky. Kathryn empowers others to life a life they love. She integrates astrology and energy healing bodywork for unique healing sessions for individuals, groups, couples and families.
My professional practice is informed by years of ecstatic experiences communing with the natural elements: early morning hours of stargazing, swimming with dolphins and whales, magical hikes in the woods and mountains.
I fascinate myself exploring the mystical tradition of Kabbalah and I integrate years of training as a color consultant and teacher into my specialized healing practice. Experiences over the years studying various styles of healing arts, martial arts, mediation, yoga and dance supports a grounded strength and grace in both my life and work.
I hold a BA in Psychology with a fine art minor from SUNY StonyBrook. I’m a 1997 graduate of the Holistic Healer Practitioner Program with a focus in massage therapy from New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts in Santa Fe, NM. My current healing practice is based in the Hudson Valley in Poughkeepsie New York.

Astrology Consultant & Teacher
Astrology serves as a grounded foundation and a springboard for intuition in soulful consulting sessions. I have years training cultivating intuition, so I have learned to compassionately integrate the most supportive information in response to my clients specific needs.
Once upon a time, in 1999, an astrologer in Santa Fe, New Mexico looked at my chart exclaimed, “YOU could be an astrologer!”
“Really?” I questioned with my voice and eyebrows raised. The idea was a seed that grew when I moved to Hawaii in April of 2000. For the first few years, I nurtured my early interest in astrology by sharing the current astrology transits for my massage and bodywork clients. I began offering full private consultations in 2003, supported by my first Saturn return and after years of experience with a mentor. I created curriculums for Interactive Astrology classes and designed the AstroActivator collage cards in 2001 & 2002.
Recently, I have been developing online training programs, while writing artilces and horoscopes for Astrology Hub and Brides magazine. I have presented "Astrology and the Mystical Kabbalah" online for Kepler College in 2016 and at the astrologers retreat in 2015 for the Organization of Professional Astrologers.
The process of creating the AstroActivator cards in early 2002 was a deep personal initiation in my learning process of astrology. Since a picture is a thousand words, I downloaded volumes of ancient wisdom within a few weeks while preparing to teach the first series of Interactive Astrology classes.
In 2007, I began writing scripts for monthly astrology podcasts.. For over a decade during 2003 - 2013 as co-founder of Gemini Awakening, I shared consultations and classes in Hawaii, across the USA, Canada, and Japan “Empowering Lives Though the Mystery of the Sky”.
As Bodyworker & Massage Therapist
Hawaii Lomilomi massage & Hot Stone massage
Heaven & Earth Healing Sessions
Cranio Sacral Therapy & Energy Healing Bodywork
As early as age 19 I knew I wanted to be a massage therapist. Early on, I felt a deep desire to share meaningful service, work with my hands and own my own business. I patiently finished my college degree with honors in 1995 from the State University of New York at Stony Brook with a BA in psychology and fine art minor. Then, in 1996 I moved to Santa Fe for massage school at the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts.
My formal training and additional education includes various modalities which I continue to integrate to this day. These include: Medical massage, Thai massage, Amma Shiatsu, Ortho Bionomy, Reflexology, Polarity Theory, and a former Doula Certification.
In recent years, I have developed my very own Heaven and Earth Healing Sessions, combining astrology and massage with energy healing bodywork for a specialized session. This is a true mind, body, spirit experience starting with a full astrology consultation followed by an integrative energy healing specialized just for you.
Cosmic Collage & Heavenly Haiku
I have been creating art and writing experiences of my world for as long as I can remember. Drawing and painting at the university level really taught me how to see, put things together and keep proper perspective in life and art. These days, I love to paint for the pure pleasure of playing with color. I have always loved creating collage.
Collage means "to assemble". I cut myself up and put my self back together. I find a part of me and reintroduce myself in a new environment. My images are inspired primarily by ancient archetypes, the mystical Hebrew letters and magical meditation experiences. I create worlds.
I am writing more and more these days, reflecting on the cycles of soul individually and collectively. The night sky and ecstatic experiences in nature inspires heavenly haiku. Writing supports a deeper appreciation of myself and the world.
