Susannah Meel, the founder of Astro Kitty, is a professional astrologer, Tarot reader, writer and entrepreneur from Estonia. As a long-term member of the Estonian Drikung Kagyu Tibetan Buddhist Center, her practice is uniquely curated from a Buddhist perspective. She finds inspiration from the fact that astrology has been part of Buddhism since the time Lord Buddha Shakyamuni first taught the Kālacakra (Wheel of Time) 2,500 years ago. In addition to Buddhist philosophy, Susannah also draws inspiration from the archaic folklore, rich culture and pagan traditions of her native homeland in the Baltic region, known for being the last pagan nation of Europe.
Susannah has received higher education in Anthropology, Archaeology, Asian Studies (with a special focus on the history, spirituality and culture of India) and the Sanskrit language at Tallinn University. Other interests include writing, art, ancient history, science, metaphysics and traveling. She has traveled to India and Ladakh many times over the years, visiting Buddhist monasteries and attending dharma teachings by various notable teachers such as the Dalai Lama.
I started reading about astrology and Tarot since early childhood, so I have been self-taught for most of my life. Much of my knowledge has also come from direct experience.
2016 was the monumental year where I finally took up formal studies by joining diploma courses at the Estonian Institute of Astrology under Estonia’s most established astrologer Taimi Uuesoo. I received my certification in 2017 after having presented my analysis of the Dalai Lama’s birth chart. From then on I have been practicing both Tarot & astrology professionally. However, my social media presence had already begun years ago when I first created my “It’s a Scorpio Moon Thing” Facebook page and group where I shared many of my original astrological musings. It gradually grew into a lovely online community and led me to where I am today as an astrologer and entrepreneur. I feel that I owe much of my success to the supportive members of the community.
If you’d like to book a reading with me, feel free to have a look at the list of services I offer HERE. Before you book a reading with me, I feel it’s important to mention that I am an eclectic astrologer (meaning that I draw my knowledge and inspiration from all branches of astrology, especially Western, Hellenistic, Vedic, Tibetan and Avestan). I also use the Whole Sign Houses (the original house system), the tropical zodiac and ancient techniques with modern principles of astrology. I consider myself an eternal student with a progressive vision – always evolving, studying, growing and improving my knowledge and technique.
The real inspiration behind “Astro Kitty”:
Many people have asked me about the meaning and the reason behind my domain name. Let me tell you why I picked “Astro Kitty” – it is actually a name inspired by my family pet, a black Bombay cat! His actual name is Niffi.
