K.L. Dec 28, 2016
I was recommended by a friend to AstroShaman and given an astrological reading that has greatly helped me. I didn’t realize something was out of balance but feel in line now and given many things to think about and work on.
Taylor Y Nov 29, 2016
My daughter had a great experience with the AstroShaman and a deep pain that was stuck in her diaphragm was released! Very pleased and thankful.
Janet Young Nov 26, 2016
Our session was a really good experience for me. Benjamin was kind, caring and gave careful guidance. The energy was exhilarating and I am confidant that the healing process is in effect. I would certainly recommend.
Tyson Compton Nov 20, 2016
Incredibly healing and deep experience
I wasn’t sure what to expect during my session, but I was deeply moved by the session and experienced healing and a calm as a result of our time together. Benjamin was gracious and supportive.

Exceptionally professional experience. Was a top-quality reading And Benjamin Answered almost every question I posed with great depth of detail. I highly recommendHis services.
Richard DeSantis Nov 10, 2016
Benjamin’s reading was accurate and confirmed that I am living my life on purpose. I am more conscious of releasing to what no longer is in my best interest to make room for more valuable energies and experiences. I am now focused on using the energies of my transits to fulfill my North Node journey. Thanks, Benjamin.

Insightful experience with an awakened being
Benjamin was insightful, compassionate and easy to understand. He is truly an awakened being who shares his knowledge of the cosmos as a gift to the world. I’m looking forward to more sessions! Thank you!!!
J.A. Oct 29, 2016
Thanks to Benjamin I now have a better understanding where I am today and where I can go. He provided a very comprehensive and clear reading and was attentive to my questions.
K.M. Oct 19, 2016
Benjamin is special, one of a kind. He doesn’t judge and easily picks up the issue at hand and articulates options for a breakthrough. Kind words. Generous heart.
Dana K Oct 12, 2016
Validation and clarity
Prior to this reading I was largely self taught.I am grateful that Benjamin was able to give the information on a level that I could understand and put to good use, Astrology Lite, he called it. It was very interesting to hear that characteristics of both my personality and soul are visible in my chart. It was helpful on a practical level, to become aware of and start working with these energies rather than self judging and comparing to others. Valuable for all learning Self Love..Realization.
Kathrine McLeod Oct 1, 2016
I’m Terribly Picky
I’ve been studying astrology for 20 years. Read many books, been apart of several astrology groups in my area. I’ve heard many astrologers in person & enjoyed their stuff. Had a few, not so great readings. They knew astrology, but usually couldn’t give any worthwhile advice. An astrologer needs some experience counseling & some degree of life experience. Benjamin was good. When someone can offer worthwhile advice & teach me something I didn’t know, after all I’ve learned. I’m impressed. Nice job
William Voss Sep 28, 2016
Eye opening intro to the soul
I absolutely loved this experience. I’d never had my chart read before and Benjamin was wonderful. He covered topics I didn’t know would be in a chart, such as what qualities I’m attracted to in men. Benjamin hit it exactly! This experience was like being reintroduced to a beloved friend after years apart. The lucky thing is, the friend was myself! I’m taking on a new life direction and according to my chart, it’s the perfect time and the right direction. Great experience! I’ll do this again!
Kellie K Sep 26, 2016

Truly cares that the session will be of most benefit to what you need in your path forward. Insightful and compassionate presence. :)
Meghan F Sep 25, 2016
With such Clarity Benjamin guided me through the vastness of my being, showing the beauty and pain of MY chosen journey through this lifetime. To see my authenticity and to embrace it was liberating. I now know I am on purpose and gladly step into living wildly MY Abundant life. As the saying goes “don’t just feed a man a fish, teach him how to fish and he will never go hungry” Benjamin has empowered my flame that has been hidden within till now.
Trish H Sep 10, 2016
One of the Few Astrologers I Recommend
Content packed, intense information, technologically sophisticated, responsive to client questions and level of astrological knowledge……
Gayle D Sep 6, 2016
The Shamanic Healing Session was amazing. I could feel bad energy being pulled out of my body & felt lighter and lighter. Afterwards, I was in an altered, extremely peaceful-feeling state and realized if I could always feel that way, I could love and handle any situation. Transformational!
Rebecca C Aug 29, 2016
My first meeting with Benjamin was truly empowering! I no longer feel I “have to” walk a traditional path. I can now move forward, with confidence, towards the work that IS calling me! Thank you!
Capri W Aug 29, 2016
Just what I need
Working with Benjamin is so fun and helpful when I need numbers and substance to clarify what’s going on in my life. He supplies the data to support my feelings and experience. And offers ways to enhance and utilize the transits to maximum benefit. He always can find a positive use or action for any chart rather than giving me a list of challenges with no way out. I leave his session with a list of possibilities and action items. Listening to the replay provides me with flashes in my magic.
Rita Morgin Aug 19, 2016
This really gave me a completely new perspective on life! Who knew that 2 hours could put me in a whole new state of mind. I feel that I truly know myself better than I ever have.
Lilah H Aug 16, 2016
Thank you so much Benjamin.I really needed this. I am so amazed that you knew that I needed this! Very grateful.
Deborah Stachnik Aug 14, 2016
Thank you, Benjamin. You heard exactly what I was asking for and worked as a conduit for the work to happen, clearly with my best interest in mind. Many thanks, Sarah
Sarah S Aug 13, 2016
I practice healing modalities & I have been to many wonderful healers. Benjamin sets the bar very high. Not only he is incredibly intuitive & skilled in his work, he is also very professional, compassionate, caring, humble soul. His work is simple yet very powerful. True transformation! He has done astrology &shamanic healing sessions for me. He’s my first person to see when I get to Asheville! I’m looking forward to working with him long distance. I have a lot of gratitude 4 Benjamin. TY
Tatiana Pouladian Aug 8, 2016
Transformative! Go for it!
Benjamin displayed deep expertise and limitless compassion. I consider our session a turning point in my life, having arrived to the appointment with acute sadness, pain and fear. The astrology reading satisfied my curious and anxious mind, yet I feel strongly it was simply the “prologue” for the shamanic awakening and invocations which spoke to my soul. Through the invocations I am provided with a lasting sense of peace and purpose that will remain and grow with me forever.
Mercy B Jul 31, 2016
Benjamin was able to power through some intensely stuck energy I had with continual kindness and respect for my comfort.
J.M. Jul 29, 2016
I was very hesitant to book an appointment as I did not have any knowledge of Astrology. Benjamin did a fantastic job of reading my chart and helping me to understand its nuances in simple terms. He is a kind,caring and generous individual who makes you feel comfortable from the start. Benjamin also used his shamanic knowledge to help me heal during this session – IT Was Awesome! I highly recommend Benjamin to anyone looking for clarity about themselves or to heal & awaken. Thank you Benjamin.
Penny W Jul 28, 2016

Benjamin Astro Shaman
In the first 7 mo’s. of this year I’ve falling 5 times. Each fall was nastier than the last. A friend told me to call Ben so I did, That evening he returned my call. He started the session, then he cleared my physical body of all the negative energies and replaced it with positive loving energy. He asked how I felt, I have more energy and balance now that I’ve had in over a year. He also worked on the Spiritual aspect of my body and that enriched my life beyond belief. THANK YOU!

What a blessing! Benjamin is extremely professional & amazingly gifted. His process is clear & concise and delivers powerful insight that cleared my path, illuminating & elevating its trajectory. I left his place renewed, energized, & extremely grateful for the tools & synchronous understanding he delivered. His Light shines as bright as any I have ever shared. I would urge anyone actively-evolving to include a session with Benjamin. It will forever change you. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Matthew Kelley Jul 18, 2016
Comprehensive Insight and guidance
Following a 2-hour session with Benjamin I felt peacefully energized, encouraged and reinforced. Uncertain with the course my life should take, Benjamin showed me, in my chart, not only what my life purpose is but how everything up until this moment was preparation for “now” and “now is my moment”. I am on the right path. The Shaman invocations and reinforcements that follow have been just the boost that I need. Many thanks and kudos to Benjamin for developing these powerful skills and rituals

Illuminating and Energizing Consultation
Mr. Bernstein was able to show me the high side of my planetary influences and help dispel misconceptions I’d picked up from a previous interpretations of my natal chart. His mastery as an astrologer combined with his shamanistic intuition and care helped me to see new possibilities in the ways I interact with the world, and gave insight into untapped potentials for living a more authentic and harmonious life. I highly recommend having a consultation with Mr. Bernstein!
Daniel V Jul 16, 2016
I had a 1 hour session with Benjamin yesterday and I am still reeling with energy, positive emotions, inspiration and ease. Truly a gifted and tapped in individual. Would recommend a session to anyone and everyone :)
Paula T Jul 13, 2016
I really enjoyed my 2 hour reading with Benjamin today. I feel it was very informative and I feel the guidance he provided really resonated with me. I would recommend him and also plan to consult with him again in the near future.
Cheryl Yamamoto Jul 6, 2016

Another amazing session
Yesterday I received a one hour shamanic healing session from Benjamin, it was done over the phone. It was amazing!
robert six owls Jun 25, 2016
A pleasantly reassuring and enlightening experience!
This is my second reading, and third session with Benjamin. Each time, I have had a wonderful experience. Benjamin has a compassionate way of providing information and tools to help with the more challenging aspects in my chart. Being a healer and intuitive myself, I find that it takes a special combination of intuition, compassion, direction, and skill to be a healer’s healer, and Benjamin is a delightful combination of all of the above.
Samantha DeBruhl Jun 9, 2016
Incredible reading. Benjamin is extremely talented, insightful and quick. I will definitely be calling him again.
K.B. May 28, 2016
A True Shaman
Benjamin is a true Astrologer and Shaman. He has the heart condition and the wisdom. He has made such a huge difference in my life through teaching me how astrology can impact me with his questions and insights. That knowledge has helped in my relationships with my husband and daughter. And knowing that I have the chart of an artist helps me to step more into who I am instead of feeling like a wannabe. I’m leaving go of being a victim and enjoying the feeling of a victor!
Rebecca C May 17, 2016
Wonderful, helpful reading
This was my first reading, and it was really very helpful. Benjamin’s healing work at the end of my reading made me feel positive and energized and his advice and insight was empowering and positive. I totally recommend him.
R.B. May 12, 2016
I was surprised!
I have worked with Benjamin several times in the past and have always found his services to be helpful. I was in the midst of a very intense emotional crisis and I honestly did not expect the results I experienced in the 24 hours after our session. Of course I felt better during the call, yet I was surprised to find that I felt true peace that evening, and the next day I was even better. Incidentally, some of the external factors contributing to my stress shifted shortly thereafter. Thank you.
K.H. May 6, 2016
The energy that works through Benjamin is palpable, radiant, and transformational. I’ve done work with many healers, and Benjamin is unique in that he is able to release his ego and in doing so, he simply allows spirit to take over. It’s a beautiful process. Every session is like a new adventure in an inter-dimensional playground. Not to mention, the healing that takes place is integrated quickly — I feel different and more “awake” after every session I have with him.
Kelly S Apr 30, 2016
An amazing session!
Benjamin’s work is sincerely transformative. I felt lighter and at peace. The session paired perfectly with the work I was currently pursuing, but took me to the next level quickly. The most important thing is his generosity and kindness. He provides great follow up to the session and helps you see things differently. His gifts and assistance are a blessing!
P.M. Apr 25, 2016
Rapid healing in a modern context! My recent session with Benjamin Bernstein was transformative. Within a short amount of time, i had full access (and remembrance) of ease, flow with presence, and embodied wisdom between earth and spirit. A current relevance to personal work, we no longer have to mediate for hours, or become a monk to be fully present, in-line, and be connected to our deepest wisdom and self. Much appreciation for the access and self-reliant map to stay AWAKE. Zack Adam

Service Excellence ~ Benjamin Bernstein!
The session with Benjamin was very thorough, professional, helpful and up-lifting. Benjamin ’s skills are so fine-tuned, he got to the heart of the matter immediately. He provided me with useful layered in insight into the transits, progressions, solar return & eclipses. His desire to give me spiritual tools as well as practical helpful resources was added value. He checked back frequently with to ensure my needs were met.. I went away with understanding, insight, and felt uplifted. We

An astro conversation (90 mn)
Very good conversation about my natal chart and current transits and issues, how to treat that critical moment… Intelligence and insight, human warmth, openness, precision, practicality and spirituality, and a dedicated sense of serving that appears 100% genuine… Wow. Many thanks, Benjamin.

Astro reading with Benjamin
I have long desired to have my chart read, but never really trusted just anybody to do so. After watching Benjamin’s videos and reading his emails for over a year I decided that I really wanted him to do it. I made an appointment for a 90 min skype session and LOVED everything about it! Not only did he teach me many amazing things, including his invocations, but he was down to Earth, quite comical and charming to boot! I’ve already booked another reading since I learned so much about Me. THANKS
Serena S Apr 5, 2016
Benjamin is a remarkable healer. The Shamanic Healing that he did with me has made me feel like a new human….peace and possibility are my new normal, as opposed to chaos and despair. I can now call in higher states of being any time simply using the Invocations. AWESOME! And did I mention that I look ten years younger? I WILL be working with Benjamin again to “go deeper”. And will recommend him to anyone needing healing.
Cindy W Apr 5, 2016
Benjamin is a gifted healer ~ able to see clearly the Astrological energies at play in ones chart and empower them to transform their lives. I learned so much about my interconnectivity to the heavenly planets ~ what special strengths I have and what shadow work I could do. We did a shamanic healing session ~ which was a profound experience for me, he said many things that I was amazed how he was able to reach out and really connect despite our distance. I have sent his name out to friends!!
Lawrence Roehrig Mar 28, 2016
I’ve studied my own chart for more than 30 years; Benjamin brought insights into play which gave me an entirely different perspective. He is extremely professional, intuitive and helpful. In additional to an astrological perspective, we did a shamanic healing session which was something that I will carry with me on my journey of soul evolution. Do not hesitate to use his services; he’s a great teacher and guide !!
Patty B Mar 26, 2016
Accurate, thorough, and knowledgeable
In a world of uncertainty, it’s nice to run across a knowledgeable professional with accuracy in his field of study. He’s blessed with a spiritual gift! After speaking with Benjamin, I felt empowered to take control of my life again. I would highly recommend working with Benjamin.
Sara R Mar 26, 2016
Clear and Confirmed
My reading with Ben was thorough, clarifying, empowering, and left me with some helpful tools in my self awareness journey that are of great value. I have already recommended him to several friends. His approach of tying in astrology with shamanic healing tools, made for a subtle yet highly ‘tuned in’ feel in his observation of me, therefore guiding the session organically and effectively. I’m very satisfied with my session with him and highly recommend his reading!!!
Kelley Mountain Mar 25, 2016
Right on and perfect application:
Great ability to interpret and give practical application to my life . Blessings are flowing everyday from his suggestions !

Getting Both Affirmation and Tools
I like Benjamin’s podcast, and was eager to have a reading with him this month. He was very informative, helpful, and gave me many suggestions for how to bring a more enlivened and spiritual approach to the challenges that my chart revealed. I would highly recommend him.
Susan D Mar 14, 2016
Benjamin navigated my chart transits, offering deep insights and healing affirmations to help with the more challenging aspects. It was fun! I was buzzing with excitement afterward.
Katrina Plato Mar 10, 2016
It was extremely overwhelming experience for me working with Benjamin. I think he is a perfect blend of knowledge combined with spirituality. He projected this experience really well. He was able to give me right advice based on my chart and also provided a healing session along with the consultation to help me overcome my challenges and difficulties. He also has strong intuitive power which he used to help me take an informed decision. This was absolutely a great value for money that I paid him
V.G. Mar 4, 2016
Benjamin who is AstroShaman is an excellent astrologer. I have used his services also for Spiritual Distance Healing with delightful satisfaction. The wisdom he has and the affirmations he shares has been such useful guidance. The private consultations have been spot on. He is a talented and gifted healer and guide.
S.G. Mar 2, 2016
An enthusiastic thanks
An enthusiastic thanks for the great astrological eclipse reading! It is good to know how an eclipse can affect the chart. You are knowledgable and direct, let me ask questions and clarified points about my chart but were not to technical. I did not know you let us ask a follow up question which is great because we might need clarification. You have a gift of helping people and I look forward to speaking to you again.
A big fan Mar 2, 2016
I have been participating in the Ease program for several months & feel the energies very strongly. The shifts for me have been incredible I then had this private healing session with Benjamin ! Wow ! I have been rendered speechless – how do you describe that which is indescribable ? I could feel several dark energies being pulled out of my body as he went through the processes – then into an altered state of absolute bliss loved it beyond words
Juanita Hall Feb 29, 2016
An experience that goes beyond words………………
When we say 100%, it implies complete, when we say 200%, it implies more than complete; and when we say 500% it implies beyond completion. I felt 500% throughout my session with Benjamin. You are doing yourself a favor by working with him. Spirit must like you if he has brought you to him.
Sejal Patel Feb 18, 2016
Benjamin delivers the perfect blend of insight, clarity, and guidance. Thank you Universe for leading me to him! My reading was thorough and validating. I felt like his words gave me permission to honor my intuition and trust the feelings that I have been experiencing. It was exactly the message I needed to hear. Thank you!
Alexandra D Feb 13, 2016
Benjamin is great! His insights to my current situation were so helpful & timely…I’d recommend him to anyone!
Bill P Feb 7, 2016
Incredible confirmation and helpful information!
A recent session with Benjamin has been incredibly helpful to me. I have been in the middle of very significant life changes and wondered what information my chart might hold. The degree of confirmation that what I have chosen to do is in complete alignment with what’s “up” for me astrologically was hugely confirming. He was also able to give me a heads up for some coming transformative times as well. Very comforting, insightful, and I will definitely check back again in the future! Thanks!
CJB Feb 7, 2016
Fantastic to work with!
Every session thus far has been spot on. From career to relationships, he has helped me map out the next few years! His ability to hone in on timing is incredible as well. I definitely recommend working with Benjamin!
Samantha S Feb 6, 2016
Shamanic Healing Session
Benjamin has helped me in many ways. First with his astrological knowledge in helping me realize better who I am and what my potentials are. The Shamanic Healing Session was amazing. I got into an altered state from his chanting and other tools. He is a true Shaman whose whole intention was to heal me. I experienced a peacefulness that remains with me still.
Rebecca C Jan 27, 2016
A Positive Experience
Benjamin’s open and friendly approach to astrology makes learning from him easy and fun. I am a returning client because I appreciate Benjamin’s supportive and positive approach to interpreting the complexities of an astrological chart, especially regarding challenges. For astrology newcomers and experts alike, I recommend Benjamin as an exemplary service provider.

Amazing Insight to Myself
I had originally booked a 120 minute session and ended up staying on skype with Benjamin for an extra hour! He gave me so much insight into myself and what drives me forward. I am so greatly appreciative for having found him and his knowledge of astronomy. I recommend for everyone!
Matthew C Jan 21, 2016
I was gifted a 30 minute session coupon from a friend, and am so happy I was given this opportunity. It’s not something I would have thought to seek out for myself. It helped bring a bit more clarity to my life. I left feeling lighter and more connected to my spiritual self.
H.T. Jan 19, 2016
Connected to a higher place
I feel very peaceful and connected to a higher place after my session with Benjamin. It’s an awareness of light. JD
J.D. Jan 8, 2016
This was my first astrology reading and it was a very positive experience. I immediately felt very comfortable with Benjamin and he explained things that seemed very complicated in a way that I could understand. I walked away with a better understanding of why I am the way I am, and how to move forward with some tools to expand my growth. Thank you, Benjamin!
