Amaya Rourke: Mage & Astrologer

Hello Gorgeous Seekers


My name is Amaya Rourke. I'm an animist, necromantic folk witch, astrological magician, and herbalist in training, who is fascinated both by our natural world and the hypnotic night sky. Star gazing is a form of praxis and poetry, and each of us are part of the mythopoetic dance.

I have studied and practiced Hellenistic, Medieval, and Renaissance astrology (grouped as Ancient Astrology) and esotericism for several years. My learning has included self-paced classes from Samuel F. Reynolds, Demetra George, Dr. Bernadette Brady, Austin Coppock, Chris Brennan, and Robert Hand. I've also mentored and received counseling from the knowledgable and soulful Samuel F. Reynolds.

Giving Readings since 2015


Ancient astrology called to me, because we live in a complex world. Our charts represent more than our personality and internal experience--they represent the space we occupy and the quality of experience we can expect, the people in our lives, the upcoming events and themes for our journey, and so much more.

Each chart not only outlines our strengths and advantages, but also our challenges. Astrology should be practical, easy to understand, and actionable--otherwise its just naval gazing that overinflates our egos or leaves us anxious and unavailable to participate in the present.

Cosmic Cauldron of Soup


Life is a giant cosmic cauldron of soup, and we are but one ingredient that experiences the profound chemical reactions of circumstance, conditioning, social systems, other people in our lives, and timing. Our choices are limited to the constrictions of those things.

There is such a thing as divine timing and destined purpose within this realm, for each individual. My job is to help you identify and tap into those possibilites, so you can make the most of every moment. I'm here to be a witness and testify to your beautiful, messy life, while helping you make the most out of whatever you have at hand.

As your astrologer I believe it's my job to help you see what the road ahead looks like, and empower you to make the best available choices in a given moment.

Working Together


When we work together, it's my sincere hope that we can help you tap into the timing of the universe that is unique to YOU and your chart, and ride the waves of fortune, as well as weather the storms, with as much grace as possible.

I also work with you to remediate chart imbalances--the repeated habits, behaviors, and cycles that trip us up and keep us locked into a holding pattern.

Finding Magical Balance


Rather than beating yourself up about self-sabotage, we will work together to mundanely and magically balance the scales in your precious natal chart, learn how to utilize your pre-existing strengths and abilities, and help you reach your greatest peace-of-mind, self acceptance, and potential.

Together we'll find your place in the world and chart the route to fulfill your destiny as professed by the stars. Thank you for trusting me to be your companion on this journey called your life 💜

    I would be lying if i said I didn’t reference something @feralvenefica said in my year-ahead reading EVERY DAY since we had it

  • Drew
    I highly recommend @feralvenefica for astrology consultations! Just sat with her for a reading which was insightful, supportive and affirming. I loved the tips she gave for remediation!

    I had a super wonderful fixed star reading with @feralvenefica this morning which was such a treat while I’m digesting my notes tonight I pulled out my Cosmos tarot + oracle for the first time in awhile for some visuals for reflection. I have a lot to think about but what was so special about Amaya’s reading was that, while I’ve gotten to know and be friends with my chart over the years, the fixed stars added new depth + specificity. I’m looking back at my planetary placements now and admiring with fresh eyes the ways in which they tell a story with the sky as a whole. big exciting work to do on the themes of creativity, artistic uses of anger+trauma response, and physicality!

    Well that was wonderful. Thank you @feralvenefica for giving me all the tools to white knuckle through the rest of 2020 and on to greener fjords! Fantastic reading, warm but not coddling, real but not harsh, and most importantly ACCURATE.  Five stars. Would do again.

    Public shout out and to @feralvenefica!!! During my fixed star reading she recommended milk thistle tincture and ACV to help my stupid sinuses. I’ve been using them both for a week and WOW I can breathe?!?!?! All day??? And night??? With both nostrils??? I’m not in pain?!?!?!
    Chelsea
  • Serena
    I had the pleasure of once again receiving a year-ahead reading from @feralvenefica and I just have to repeat, in case you have somehow previously missed my praise of her, how absolutely wonderful and gifted she is. Even while explaining less-than-pleasant configurations she maintained such gentle and compassionate energy. If you are looking for a consult with an empathetic and informed astrologer, I can’t recommend her enough.

    I had a natal chart + year ahead reading today with @feralvenefica and it was truly such a wonderful experience! Amaya is incredibly knowledgeable, warm, was patient with my tech issues, and just made me feel really excited to learn more, especially about fixed stars.  Absolutely 100% would recommend getting a reading from her, whether you’re new to astrology or more experienced. She even gave me tea recommendations, which is the way to my heart!

    My reading with @feralvenefica was quite enchanting even the stars say I am following the right path and I just hope it’s going somewhere where I can honor and thank Algol for being on my side in this life

  • Chelsea
    Ok I literally can’t say enough how much I absolutely adore @feralvenefica. I had a year ahead reading with her back in May and now I had a fixed star reading. TLDR; It was so incredibly affirming and well explained!!!!! Amaya masterfully weaved history and mythology with delineations and connections to my chart and life. All the components came together into a clear story by the end of the journey around the sky, paired with relevant gentle advice and guidance. esp needed for my Saturn return. Fixed stars can go so far beyond looking at conjunctions on a circle chart, and it’s so amazing to have someone with more expertise break it down! Everyone needs this reading!!!

    I had the DISTINCT PLEASURE of talking with @feralvenefica for an entire two hours today, one hour of which was her excellent fixed stars consult!!! I already love stars (duh) but the way Amaya cohered my parans into an Extremely Relevant arc was just ugh SO GOOD & AFFIRMING
  • Eric
    @feralvenefica is a wizard! If you haven't had a star song reading I highly recommend it. It is shocking how each technique lines up with, colors, and adds details to others. My star reading was not what I'd anticipated but it was far more than I'd expected! Book her now!

  • Adina
    I just finished up a wonderful reading with the brilliant @feralvenefica talking about my fixed stars!!! her talent is truly special, and if you want a history and mythology lesson and an affirmation of your entire life story all rolled into one, book with amaya
    Adina
  • Steph
    Finally got my parans read by the lovely @feralvenefica and it's true what they all say! It's like having your chart read in 4D instead of 2D by a talented storyteller. Brb, gotta overcome my trepidation and go purchase some Algol stuff immediately
  • Eliza
    Now my turn to trumpet @feralvenefica praises! Her fixed star reading illuminated so many gaps I've always pondered on in my natal chart. It was such a treat to have her translate and animate these stories!!!! Keep the bookings going! (And gift for your loved ones?!)

  • Chris
    I just finished being serenaded by @feralvenefica's Siren Star Song. Incredible on so many levels. Her insights and lofty story telling is grounded with bits of endearing commentary. She's helped remind me of how all of this work is a remembering of my connection to the divine. It's slightly overwhelming to hear of the work I am intended to do and I have so many questions I can't form words to. I think this is a wonderful problem to have. Anyways go get a reading from her. I was feeling deflated but Amaya's help me find the wind to get me moving again.

  • Cherice
    With Amaya's help, I feel like I’m handling my Saturn return pretty damn good! Just know she has 5 -6 years of accurate receipts from the predictions she's done for me.
    Cherice
  • Ashley
    ok and also, I’m totally won over on solar return readings. as a rule I tend to prefer astro as a reflective tool but @feralvenefica made me feel SO solid for what’s in store, which in turn makes me trust my gut that much more, she’s such a gift y’all!!

  • Sam Reynolds
    Learn more about the stars in astrology. So many are talking about "sidereal" astrology, but not saying jack about the actual stars! Learn from a meticulous learner and teacher.
  • Asphodelo Stregganio
    I have just had a consult with @feralvenefica and I have to say. Absolutely the best, the clarity with which my chart was explained has given me an insight to themes in my life and blown it wide open. I will be having follow up consults and my Fixed stars read soon. 10/10
  • Ivy
    I had a birthday reading with my new friend @feralvenefica today and I am floored! It was amazing! She's super perceptive, direct, kind, and exactly on my wavelength! To get astrological remediation magic suggestions, right along with the reading? Stunning! Highly recommended!
