We had the good fortune of connecting with Georgia Vlahos and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Georgia, is there something you can share with us that those outside of the industry might not be aware of?
I am a consulting Astrologer and Intuitive Tarot Reader. I find that people tend to think of astrology as the general horoscopes they read online or in magazines. Astrology is so much more than that! There are times in life that people feel that they have lost their sense of purpose and direction. Many times, this is impeded by their past: childhood issues, relationship issues, educational issues and karmic issues. All of these issues and many more are reflected in the Astrology chart. Remember, the planets were situated in this way at the time of birth. This means, of course, some things are definitely fated. Fate, however, is the opportunity; free will is what you do with it. Fate is merely an opportunity to move beyond restrictions. Because humans have been given free will, how we react and handle our fate is completely up to the individual. By discovering the blocks and issues and finding a way to navigate through them, my clients can lead purposeful lives and experience joy and success in their careers and personal lives. Because I am a Certified Life Coach, finding solutions in addition to identifying issues is critical in my consultations. I truly believe that there is a solution to every problem. www.georgiavlahos.com
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a consulting Astrologer, Psychic Tarot Reader, Reiki Master and Crystal, Sound and Chakra Therapist. I have dedicated my life over the past 25 years to helping people to understand themselves, their soul’s purpose, and to overcome blocks to success in their personal and professional lives to live a life of joy and fulfillment. This is my soul’s purpose. In that time period I raised two wonderful sons, loved a few dogs and never stopped learning. I study all the time, take classes and generally always try to have the knowledge I need to do my work in a successful, professional way. It hasn’t always been easy as a single mom, but it has been the most fulfilling life! I don’t regret a minute of it. Success to me is witnessing a client’s “ah ha” moment, helping them to make difficult decisions and seeing their lives change for the better. I learned many things but most important is the fact that we can find joy and fulfillment in our lives by using the proper tools which include: traditional therapy, Astrology and Reiki healing. Astrology is a multi-dimensional modality. Reiki healing helps to heal body, mind and spirit. The Tarot is a wonderful tool to help us understand our life’s situations and relationships. There were many times in my early life that I didn’t want to go on, but now, looking back, I am so glad I did. Life is good. And if I can make it even a little better for my clients and students, life is great.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I moved to San Diego in 1990 from New Jersey with my family to start a new life. I adore San Diego. We have so much here and it’s so diverse. My favorite places include the SD Zoo Safari Park, The Zoo, Blaboa Park, Seaport Village, any beach, Old Town…oh, there’s so much here! There are wonderful hiking trails, dog beaches, and of course some of the best food around. My favorite is Mexican food and there are so many wonderful Mexican restaurants, many of them in Old Town. When my son from Florida comes in to visit, he always stops for a burrito on the way home from the airport. Doesn’t even matter what time of day or night it is. He loves our Mexican food! One of my favorite places is Encinitas with it’s beautiful beaches, great little stores and of course Swami Yogananda’s Meditation Gardens. I always take people there! San Diego is just the best. Living here is like being on vacation 365 days a year!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to dedicate my story to all the wonderful students and clients over the years who have supported my work and hopefully been able to integrate it to have a life of joy and success. You have been like family to me and I am eternally grateful.
