About Liz Simmons

Ever since she was a child, Liz has always been fascinated with the occult. But her witchy journey didn’t begin until Liz’s nodal return in 2015 when she felt called to study astrology and eventually tarot while working toward her B.A. in psychology.

Liz’s astrological practice blends traditional Hellenistic with modern techniques that utilize the tropical zodiac and Whole House system. Given her educational background in psychology, Liz prefers to incorporate what she has learned in her readings.

Liz views astrology and tarot as another tool in our arsenal to understand the cosmic interplay in our lives. Her goal is to create meaningful relationships with each client that aim to inform and empower them through the application of astrology and tarot.

Currently, you can read Liz’s astrological articles and horoscopes on StyleCaster, POPSUGAR, and Astrology.com. Formally, she has ghostwritten for astrologers and astrological platforms. Her ghostwriting has been featured on Oprah Daily, E! News, InStyle, and more.

Are you in Salem, MA? Liz also serves as an in-house resident astrologer and tarot reader at ASCEND Get Lifted in downtown Salem. Please stop by and say “hi” if you’re in town!

Aside from all things magical, Liz enjoys reading skin-crawling horror books, snuggling with her kitty, and drinking craft cocktails.

“As above, so below.”

“The good stars met in your horoscope/Made you of spit and fire and dew.”
