Heather Eland is a Professional Astrologer and Educator with a huge passion for teaching her students to use astrology as a tool for self-understanding and strategizing for success!
Heather has been studying astrology for roughly a decade and has had the honor of working with some highly talented and well-respected teachers, including Master Astrologer and Radio Host, Robert Phoenix, and Medical Astrologer and Astrology Researcher, Lynn Koiner. Heather’s background is in psychology and she hold a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. She is also certified as a Yoga Teacher and Trauma Informed Yoga Therapist. Heather has always been fascinated with the connection between mind, body and spirit, and this connection is what informs her work as a Medical Astrologer.

Throughout her career as a Professional Astrologer, Heather has had the pleasure of collaborating with many talented astrologers, including the beautiful and talented Lada Duncheva on her YouTube channel and website, Her writing has been featured on the Conscious Life News website, as well as on the website of her teacher and mentor, Robert Phoenix. More recently, she hosted a series called Astrology 101 on Ickonic Alternative Media, with the aim of shedding light on this ancient and often misunderstood technical art form. Heather also runs her own popular YouTube Channel where she deliver Weekly Astrology Forecasts and Astrology Education to hundreds of thousands of viewers each week!
Heather’s work is centered on Western astrology, combining both modern, psychological astrology and traditional Hellenistic techniques. Integrating her astrology expertise with her psychology background, Heather uses astrology as a tool for self-exploration and discovery. Heather’s unique approach to teaching and practicing astrology integrates practical knowledge with intuitive insight and offers a deep sense of relief, as re-discovering oneself through the birth chart provides the permission and guidance to live more authentically. Through exploring past, present and future influences to the birth chart, it is possible to find order in seemingly chaotic life events by pairing a deeper meaning, purpose and context with difficult life experiences and to create a concrete strategy to help deal with future planetary influences. This is what Heather aims to teach and empower all of her students to learn how to do for themselves in her webinars, tutorials and courses.

Meet Heather's Team



Sun in Libra, Moon in Sagittarius, Leo Rising

I was raised in a health food store, which my mother owned and operated for 24 years. Growing up in a health conscious environment taught me a lot about natural medicine and, as a result, I haven’t taken any prescription drugs in decades. I've raised two amazing daughters who now own a farm in upper Michigan with many different animals. I’m very proud of them for working toward living a self-sufficient lifestyle! Once I settle down in my travels, I’ll likely plant myself (and a pinball table) on their land.

As a part of Heather’s team, one of my jobs is to answer your questions and to provide customer support to Heather’s students and clients, but I pretty much do a little bit of everything around here!

Fun Facts:

  • I’m currently a traveling gypsy nomad visiting friends, family, and places I’ve never been all while finding locations to play pinball during my travels.  
  • I absolutely find joy in cooking for others and once worked as a lunch lady cooking for over 1000 kids a day.  

What I love most about being Heather’s Virtual Assistant & Student Support Specialist:

“I love working for Heather, her team, and being here to help people in their astrological journeys!  I may not know much about astrology, but I truly love being able to support the customers and help Heather with all the behind the scenes work, essentially the “wizard gypsy” behind the curtain!”



Sun in Cancer, Moon in Pisces, Leo Rising

My name is Shanna, I have been studying astrology since 2012 taking notes from all the free videos out there and looking at my and my husbands charts to find the deeper meaning of our lives.  The formal structured courses I have taken are with Heather Eland through her live in person and at your own pace foundational courses and all her outer planets and extras that she puts out.  I have also studied through Robert Phoenix's 11th house Astrology online course, several of Astrolada and her other Astrologer courses and recently started studying both Vibrational and Helenistic astrology.  Working as a TA with Heather is both an honor and a pleasure and I look forward to also deepening and sharpening my skills and knowledge with everyone on his journey. 

Fun Facts:

  • I try to love plants, but I usually kill them.
  • I’m a total space nerd—like ALL things outer space. 

What I love most about being a Teaching Assistant in the Cosmic Academy of Astrology:

“I enjoy watching the lightbulb moments, when something clicks for the student and they get it and get excited to start looking at charts to put the newfound knowledge to use. I also like when they realize those “scary” placements in their birth charts aren’t that scary.”

Yelena is a previous student of Heathers and has since gone on to study more in-depth in the fields of Yoga, Philosophy, Numerology, Modern and Ancient Hellenistic Astrology which she uses in her Intuitive Soul Coaching business. She is 100% dedicated to being of service and making these esoteric and spiritual modalities a more common thread in modern-day society!

Fun Facts:

  • I have a knack for creating magic in the kitchen! Cooking is my therapy and I love to share that with others.
  • I’m totally in tune in a weird way with animals and can communicate with them without words!

What I love most about being a Teaching Assistant in the Cosmic Academy of Astrology:

“Being a TA is AWESOME because of the life-long connection I get to build with other budding Astrologers from all over the globe. We are all learning and growing together and it’s so amazing to watch a lot of them fall even more in love with this Ancient practice as they progress in the course!”

Sun in Pisces, Moon in Pisces, Gemini Rising

I am a mom and self-taught acrylic painter. As such, I am eternally in awe of the beauty and intelligence of the cosmos. As my little show of gratitude in this life, the subject matter of the stars is a theme constantly intertwined with all the creative work I do. In addition to the work I do with Heather, I run an Etsy store where I sell crystals, prints, and original paintings.

As a part of Heather’s team, I design beautiful, eye-catching images to accompany her astrology content and manage her social media accounts.

Fun Facts:

  • I'm a really good juggler, but only because my mother sent my brother and I to a clown college (yes there's such a thing) in 7th grade so we would "come out of our shells." Who does this? But yes, I'm a freaking good juggler now!
  • I was prom queen. I was new to school, terribly awkward and shy, and so I legit thought it was a Carrie-esque practical joke or something, but it turns out they just liked me.

What I love most about being Heather’s Social Media Manager:

“What is not to love about creativity and astrology every day? I pinch myself sometimes because I have fairly random mix of talents and gifts and the work I do for Heather utilizes them all in such a way that I feel like this position is tailor made for me by the Universe itself. I love that Heather recognizes what we (the team) all do well and yet she also seems to know exactly where to push each of us to grow. It inspires me and and makes me feel good about myself and the passions I've pursued.”
