my name is janelle belgrave. i’m an astrologer, a licensed acupuncturist, herbalist, clairvoyant intuitive, and meditation instructor.
My healing journey began with my mother’s mythical childhood stories of Panama. My mind was alight with her tales of growing up on my great-grandmother’s farm, where she churned butter, fed pigs, and stole fruit from the neighbors’ trees. Most intriguing were the tidbits of herbal lore and everyday curandera magic she’d sneak into her stories: how brews from certain bushes cured coughs, how special baths of bay rum and lemon obliterated fevers, and, of course, how Vicks Vapor Rub is a magic balm that heals everything from bronchitis to bug bites (I use essential oils now, but in a pinch, vapor rub remains the business!).
As a child, exploring New York City street markets with Mama was another great education in botany and seasonal eating. She instilled in me a deep knowledge of the timing of the natural world; her comments rooted themselves in my mind, like how a big, yellow moon means rain and how the perfect mixture of aromatic plants and herbs will cleanse and freshen the home. Her worldview also left me open to exploring occult studies, like astrology, numerology, palmistry, and clairvoyance – anything that helped me see the magic that exists in the seemingly ordinary.
At age twelve, I discovered the newspaper astrology column, and my passing fancy with celestial activities became an unending fascination. Astrology revealed that life is a grand play, one in which the entire cosmos is participating, with a plot we Earthlings seem to have forgotten. Astrology helps us remember our direction, in order to clarify our relationships, craft our futures, and decipher and heal our maladies.
In 2008, after receiving my B.S. in Child & Family Studies from Syracuse University, I started my Traditional Chinese Medicine education at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. It didn’t take long to realize that the ancient knowledge I was learning reflected the same philosophy that originally drew me to astrology: we’re all inter-connected and impacted by the world that surrounds us; and health and harmony are available to each of us if we can simply flow with the current of existence, instead of against it. Since graduating in 2012, I’ve successfully treated thousands of acupuncture cases, ranging from insomnia, depression, pain syndromes, and autoimmune and gynecological disorders, as well as pre- and postnatal care.
Miraculous change is possible, and the potential to realize our dreams is one of the greatest aspects of this entire human trip. True transformation takes time, courage, and support. Becoming who you’re meant to be and listening to your heart’s calling is no small endeavor, and it’s my mission to assist in guiding you toward living the inspired, authentic life that’s in alignment with your greatest joys and desires. I’m honored and overjoyed to able to use all my tools to help you become your most amazing physical, emotional, and spiritual self.
I look forward to working with you!
