Bringing Oracular Insights In A Language You Can Understand
As a happy lifelong student of Astrology and History, Nissa entertains different schools of thought from around the world. She utilizes both Western and Eastern perspectives in astrological readings and can do both Tropical and Sidereal Calculations as well as Whole Sign and Placidus House Systems. Swiss Ephemeris, SolarFire, Astrograph and Astrodienst charts are all welcome!
Nissa formally started her studies in 2014 with Traditional Chinese Astrology and currently works a lot with Ancient Traditional techniques.
Thank you to Project Hindsight, Nissa was able to weave The Classical Thema Mundi Schema into the Modern Archetypal Astrology as the anatomical foundation of her interpretation protocol. Now in 2019, Nissa brings ALL that she has cultivated to her service.
Cosmology is the study of the Universe in its totality.
Nissa studied Philosophy, Divination, Mythology, History, Science, Astronomy, Psychology, Physiology and Art, both in Western and Eastern Schools. She earned a Bachelor in Fine Arts degree, from AAU in San Francisco, at age 19. That is when she found Renaissance in the works of Leonardo DaVinci, Joseph Campbell, and C.G Jung. She continues to be a lifetime student of these brilliant minds.
Since January 2016, Life Coaching has been an on-going piece of Nissa's life. She took courses from Marie Forleo, Brendon Burchard and lives Wholehearted Living taught by Dr. Brene Brown. She takes Transformational work to heart!
Nissa credits Caroline Myss' Anatomy of the Spirit in her coaching approach. By using her own life's journey and half a decade of candid talk therapy with Sara Feley, MFT, Nissa strategizes deployment of her traumas and rages into healing for the Collective. All emotions are instructive.

Life Events of Nissa:
Pluto Ingressed to 0 degrees Scorpio
Little Nissa, during the rising hour of Leo, along the Equator in Jakarta Indonesia, was born into a dominion of powerful women. She spent her childhood years in her family's Fashion empire with her beautiful Mother and 8 aunts.
Nissa Finds Her First True Loves
Her first loves were mystery, detective and espionage Books - she read every single forensic book the local library had to offer. Mata Hari was her spirit animal! A few years later she found her second true love: Linguistics and Etymology. After studying French she moved to Paris at age 15 to study and help her family's fashion business expand.
Her Heart Finds San Francisco
Freedom to a free spirit like Nissa means "no condemnation whatsoever to what you see inside of yourself."
Nissa blooms and is her happiest in California, the glorious Bay Area that celebrates, nurtures and loves. She went to Art School, dated artists, had a major Rockabilly period during her film years, and lived at the old Haight-Ashbury due to a boy, vintage clothes and the proximity of Amoeba Music. Only in San Francisco one can do all of the above. Here, Nissa gained access to sovereignty in her life, with minimal interruptions.
Best Food Culture also. Nuff said.
The World of Wine
The Hospitality Industry swept Nissa away into the world of Michelin Stars, Grapes, Vintages, and Terroirs. She started as a Bartender in her early 20's and one thing led to another...
In 2010, Nissa became a Sommelier...shortly after she found Rudolph Steiner! She wouldn't have become an Astrologer if she wasn't a Sommelier first.
Mount Etna, Sicily, Italy is a favorite topic both in Wine and Astrology. #hadesandpersephone #ariannaocchipinti

Nissa Embarks on her Astrology Journey
Nissa's astrological studies started when she met Teacher Liu Ming from the Da Yuan Circle. Ming taught Nissa about Imperial China's Astrological Geomancy Department, which led Nissa to study Polestar Astrology, also known as the Zi Wei Dou Shu. She studied Zuo Yan's School of Naturalists philosophies of Yin and Yang, the Five Elements theory, Nine Star Ki Astrology, the Ba Gua system, the 12 Animals Archetypes, The Chinese Almanac and the 28 Lunar Mansions. She became a Born-Again-Chinese in Berkeley California!
Cosmology, Feng Shui & Ayurveda
In 2015 Nissa got certified as a Feng Shui Practitioner from the Golden Gate School of Feng Shui. After years of Chinese Divination Traditions, Nissa delved to the Vedic System and Ayurveda.The Vedic terms were in Sanskrit, which is also the root of Indonesian language, her Mother Tongue. Nissa had a lot of fun uncovering the profound meanings behind words she had taken for granted while growing up. Astrology, once again, connected her deeper to her roots. She continues to study the works of Ernst Wilhelm with Brihat Parasara Hora Sastra.
Nissa's fire was lit when she started studying Western Astrology! Caroline Casey's Visionary Activist Astrology is a prominent primer in her studies. She learned to integrate Modern and Traditional Astrology from Demetra George.
