We had the good fortune of connecting with Maurielle Laurenne and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Maurielle, maybe we can start at the very start – the idea – how did you come up with the idea for your business?
I wanted my life figured out for me! I think everybody does. We all secretly wonder “What is my purpose, and what should I really be doing with my career and relationships?” We are hoping for a sign that points us in the right direction.
My cosmic coaching business was founded to provide professionals with the same kind of clarity, confirmation, and confidence about their life path that I had always wanted for myself and ultimately found through the use of astrology as a tool to chart my course.
From boardrooms and fiscal calendars to stargazing and cosmic cycles, I help the most successful people find deeper meaning in their lives and work. I guide professionals from all industries to chart their success through my Life Path discovery sessions, 12-step Cosmic Coaching program, team Corporate Visioning workshops and monthly guidance column.
Astrology uses a map of the sky when you were born to provide information about where you’re going. Historically, maps have always been used to figure out direction. Your life has a map, too. By using your specific birth date, time, and location, we can map out a lifestyle and business plan appropriate for your unique Life Path.
My work is for professionals who want to discover their purpose, ignite their passion, and increase their profits in alignment with their unique destiny.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
People often ask how I seem to “read their minds” and provide insight into their deepest questions.
Prior to launching my cosmic consultancy, I spent 10 years in the executive coaching industry closing business deals upwards of $50-$250 Million for infrastructure building companies and Wall Street private equity funds. These incredible men and women were highly driven, yet they often hit a stonewall in their success trajectory. Many executives expressed a sense of disconnect—striving for a deeper understanding of their purpose in life. They often questioned whether they were doing the right things at the right time to produce the greatest impact. I began to realize that traditional psychology and mainstream coaching techniques were not enough to help these leaders.
My search for a more holistic method to help leaders excel is what led me to discover the astrological technique. Because astrology uses the mathematical formula exclusive to your individual birth data, its results are extremely personalized and yield unprecedented accuracy. As I began applying astrology to guide my corporate clients, I found that mind-body-spirit awareness brought greater fulfillment to individuals and improved their businesses.
Since launching my cosmic consultancy, I’ve guided the careers of over 700+ professionals. Most people say my method is “better than therapy” and has “nailed it on the head more than any other self-improvement program” since traditional coaching approaches tend to be generalized whereas my program is based on your one-of-a-kind birth information.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Body Mind Soul gift shop is a ‘must see’ in Houston! The store is a huge emporium of handmade crafts, artisan apothecary, real crystals, hard-to-find books, rare objects and zen home decor. Plus, customers can book a metaphysical reading with one of the store’s quality practitioners for an interactive experience that is unforgettable. A bonus is that Body Mind Soul also retails my zodiac jewelry line and hosts my cosmic workshops—so you just might see me at the store!
Phoenix Rising Integrative Medicine is another hidden gem in Houston. They provide a boutique holistic health experience using acupuncture and herbs inside a great shop filled with natural remedies, essential oils, and skincare. Phoenix Rising is also a sponsor of my zodiac jewelry line and cosmic events, so you could get the opportunity to meet me at the clinic. Its owner, Dr. Lori Earley, is a licensed expert in functional medicine and women’s wellness so lots of celebrities seek her out when they are in town.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Lilly Roddy changed my personal life and ultimately would change my career. Ten years ago, I consulted Lilly for my very first astrological assessment. At the time, I didn’t really know what astrology was, but I knew what I thought it was: silly, superstitious, Ouija boards, and crystal balls- like something from the television show ‘Sabrina The Teenage Witch.’ However, upon my arrival at her office, Lilly’s professionalism demonstrated that my previous perceptions were misinformed and that astrology had serious scientific and mathematical credibility. I learned more about my life using that astrology chart in our brief consultation than I had in years of my own individual thinking- I was impressed and, forevermore, obsessed with the idea that by mapping the sky we could map our lives!
