This life of mine has been blessed by having two daughters (both now young women). The journey through motherhood has impacted me enormously. For twelve years I edited The Mother magazine, and am ever so grateful for the circles of women who have blessed my life as a result.
I refuse to choose one vocation, and so you’ll find me enjoying right livelihood as an author, novelist, journalist, celebrant (I officiate weddings, namings, funerals, home blessings, and any rite of passage), mentor for mothers, and psychological astrologer.
My novels explore sacred space and moments, and the beauty and bruises of relationships. They are deliberately rooted in the power of family, and the characters are often on a journey of discovering their life purpose by encountering the shimmer of their soul.
In my writing room are the words: how can I be of service today? It guides me each morning. Whether I offer readers comfort through fiction, practical support by way of non-fiction books, articles in specialist magazines, by bringing a sense of the sacred through creating personalised ceremonies, or by interpreting the wisdom of the divine science known as astrology, this question remains at the foundation. I am here to serve.
My soul’s purpose is to help women live richer, meaningful, empowered and beautiful lives based on simplicity and integrity. My sacred tools are word medicine, ceremony and stellar stories.
You can find me and my wild hair living a gentle and beautiful life in the heart of rural Cumbria, comfy in a 300-year-old stone cottage, with my devoted soul mate, Paul.
How may I serve you today? Love, Veronika xx
Wife & Mother
As much as I love my work, the most important elements of my life revolve around being a wife and a mother. I’ve been so blessed to meet my soul mate, Paul, (I pinch myself every day that I met such an amazing man) and together we have two wonderful and inspiring daughters: Bethany (a composer), and Eliza (an author) www.elizaserenarobinson.com
My work life weaves itself in and around family life. I can move from writing a blog post before sunrise to hanging up laundry in the garden, to doing an astrological consultation for a person overseas to editing an article, to making a pot of soup or taking a phone call all in the course of a morning. I adore the flexibility of my lifestyle, and take full advantage of this freedom. If the sun shines brightly and warmly, I am free to potter in the garden or take a walk by the river with a friend. In the deep dark of Winter, I can write books by the woodstove, and play Scrabble with my daughters or sip hot chocolate and watch a romantic comedy.
