Jasmine Richardson

In 2010, I saw my natal chart for the first time when an astrologer handed me a detailed report tracing my life experiences to the planetary archetypes.  The accuracy of it sparked my interest to develop my own daily astrological practice. With an eye for detail and research from the skill set I acquired through my degree in Journalism (University of Houston), I embarked on assimilating the vast astrological landscape.

My passion for astrology led me to complete the Exploring Astrology Apprenticeship Program in 2017.  By 2018, I accepted the dual responsibility of managing the program and teaching as an assistant to the program director.  This new accreditation and experience prompted the start of an astrology-centered enterprise: Kosmic Tonic.

My mission is to serve the greater good of humanity, with an emphasis on the empowerment of aligning with one’s higher self through astrology.  I believe in personal growth from an inner strength and use a balance of counseling techniques along with astrological knowledge to guide my clients.

Astrological awareness helps us access our full potential.  We aim to provide the proper tools to turn this awareness into practical daily action.  Astrology is a powerful tool for understanding the psyche.
