INSPIRE Me: Danielle Paige
Anyone who has ever known me, knows how much I love my friends. Not just because they fill my life with joy and fun (and the occasional bottomless mimosa), but because they all inspire me on so many different levels.
I really believe that the energy we put out into the world comes back to us. Well… I guess I must be doing SOMETHING right to have so many wonderful, talented, generous people to brighten my world, enliven my spirit, and make me a better person for knowing them. SO. In an effort to “pay it forward”, I am going to pass my good fortune on to YOU, and create a blog series called “INSPIRE me” to introduce you to one of these incredible people each installment. I hope you enjoy their talents and gifts and spirit as much as I have!
Up first: Danielle Paige. Astrologer.
I met Danielle about a year ago now, and we became friends of friends who would see each other at big group events and holiday parties. then about 6 months ago…. we sat down next to each other at a bar that was far too loud, and far too crowded, and we started to talk. Really talk. Above the noise, and the music. And we realized that we had so much more in common than we ever may have thought. We are both independent woman creating our own businesses. We are both healers. Both transitioned from a different career to find our current path, and we both feel that we have finally found our life’s purpose…. no matter how bumpy & rocky the road to get here. from that night on… we started taking walks together, practicing yoga together, and discussing our passion for healing. We both feel very in tune with the energy around us, and Danielle quickly became one of the few people I would turn to when I needed an understanding of what & how I was feeling. And it’s no wonder she was able to help, as she is a phenomenally gifted astrologer.
Until recently, I’d never given much thought to the stars, or how mercury in retrograde, or Saturn square to Mars could POSSIBLY affect me, here on Earth. But then I began to learn more & more about this ancient practice, and it became fascinating to me. So about a month ago, I consulted Danielle for a chart reading. It ended up being an epic 2 hour adventure through the course of my life so far, and the trajectory of my future. It was almost scary at times, how accurate her analysis was, and how adeptly she helped me navigate some of the inexplicable feelings of connection I had always experienced. It was more like a therapy session than most therapy sessions I’ve attended. She helped open my eyes to some of my internal struggles, while giving me ways to continue on my highest path, so that I could be the best & most joyful version of myself possible. And that…. Is the greatest gift of all. The journey to self awareness, and self LOVE.
So . Get to know Danielle Paige.
How did you first become interested in astrology?
A coworker from an old job (see everything happens for a reason!) read my chart one night and I was blown away with how accurate it was. He barely knew me, yet he was able to tell me personal things about myself. I went home that night and literally read everything I could about Astrology until the sun came up! No joke!! That was the beginning and the passion hasn’t stopped since. Several classes later and a bookshelf full of astrology books I’m smitten!
What drives your passion?
Knowing that I can help people on their path and I can make a difference in their lives. That fills my heart with so much joy!
What inspires you?
Living a life filled with purpose and meaning. It sounds cliché but it’s the truth. If I’m not passionate about what I do, I just can’t do it. That saying, fake it till you make it does not apply to me. I have to truly feel it from within.
5 of your favorite things:
In no particular order: lululemon yoga pants, Olive oil (Spanish olive oil is the best and it’s a great beauty treatment as well), laughter (I laugh at myself all the time!), sushi, sunsets on the beach.
How would you define your chart reading style?
The first thing people should know about me is I am as real as can be! I’ve been told I have a way of putting people at ease and making them feel comfortable. So I make the chart reading like a conversation between friends, I never judge anything that I see. We all have stuff we need to work on, that’s why we’re human! And I try to deliver the messages in the most compassionate way possible…and a little laughter along the way is also healthy for the soul.
What sets you apart in your field?
Great question! I not only use my logical side and my trained astrological background but I also use my intuition and clairvoyance as well to receive messages when doing chart readings. This combination allows me to get to the heart of the most pressing issues that their soul needs to know and transform.
What are your greatest challenges?
Currently it’s starting my own business. I left the corporate world behind to follow my dreams and heart. Although I have been blessed with clients thus far, starting a business is always a leap of faith and I literally jumped into the unknown!
What are you manifesting in your life right now?
My twinflame! Yup, leave it up to me to not even settle for my soulmate, of course I always have to step it up a notch True love; mind, body, soul connection is what I came here to experience.
What’s your roadmap for finding your “Bliss”?
I always follow my heart and listen to my gut even if it’s different from the norm. I don’t worry if people will think it’s weird because when I’m honest with myself and follow my heart I find I shine even greater than I could have imagined. When you truly look inside and follow your heart the universe supports you in every way.
5 things that make you happy:
Using my gifts to help people, game nights, my friends & family, traveling, being in nature.
One thing you could not live without:
High thread count sheets. Heaven! (This is my Taurus sun talking)
If you could share ONE thing about yourself with the world, what would it be?
I’m working on strengthening my connection with spirit so I can help people connect to those who have passed over. It’s part of my destiny and I’m here to show people we all have these gifts, it’s just energy – which we all are.
