Astrologer Belinda's Bio
Belinda has got over 10 years of chart-reading experience and holds four university degrees. Before becoming a professional astrologer, she was doing a highly stable and well-paid job. She switched careers because astrology had simply changed her life.
Based in Hong Kong, she completed her secondary education at the prestigious Diocesan Girls' School and used to be interested in the Sun sign columns in newspapers and magazines as a child. After obtaining her first degree in Psychology (1st Class Honours) from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, she became a civil servant. At that time thinking job security was the most important thing in life, Belinda joined the government's Information Services Department and served as a press officer for well over a decade.
While working full-time, Belinda also obtained a master's degree in New Media from the Chinese University and another masters in Public Administration (with Distinction) from the University of Hong Kong.
Despite job security and career opportunities, she still felt something important was missing, but could not quite say what. The turning point came when she started studying serious astrology. The insights from the discipline were so revelatory that her outlook on life was totally transformed, so much so that eventually, she quit her stable government job to pursue a career in Western counselling astrology to help others lead a more fulfilling life.
Aiming to integrate psychotherapy techniques into her astrological work with clients, Belinda is particularly interested in Ericksonian hypnotherapy and Existential psychotherapy. She also holds a master’s degree in Counselling from the University of Hong Kong and took her professional astrological studies with the Faculty of Astrological Studies, London.
Belinda enjoys writing. In addition to writing for her various blogs, she has also published astrology articles in both Chinese and English on a number of platforms, including the Bastille Post, VJ Media, The Faculty of Astrological Studies, London, Medium and U Blog. She has published an ebook in Chinese, helping readers to learn more about their potential from their birth charts.
From personal experience, Belinda understands what it's like to create a unique and fulfilling life path, starting from ground zero and all on one's own. As being an astrologer is usually considered not a "mainstream" or even a "proper" job in Hong Kong, she knows from first-hand experience what it feels like to be misunderstood and under-appreciated by society at large. She can tell how tough it is for individuals trying to carve out their own paths while being so often misunderstood and unsupported by other people.
Belinda has named the company "Astro Pastures" because when people are having a hard time or at cross-roads, they need time and space to re-discover or re-assess their own needs and potential, helped along by tips from someone experienced and supportive, so that they can find their inspiration and strength again to walk on a life path that truly belongs to them.
