Michelle Star (Astrologist):
Michelle Star has been on the astrological path since the age of 4, when she can remember asking all her friends their birthdates. Even as a child she knew she had a natural born talent. She has since been the life of every party, where she is always surrounded by people asking her to do a reading.
It is Michelle’s love of people and positive attitude that has evolved her gift of astrology into a successful business. She has 40 years experience reading horoscopes, and along with her psychic abilities she does so in a comprehensive, intelligent manner, and with stunning accuracy. It is not uncommon for her to get a phone call from a past client saying, “Michelle, I don’t know how you knew it, but…!”
Ms. Star was a staple of New York City airwaves for over 10 years when she hosted and produced her own call in show on Manhattan Cable, and has since been concentrating on all facets including corporate events, private parties, social functions and private readings. She has been hired on a regular basis for events on the Intrepid, Barnes and Noble and the Bryant Park Hotel, and has been featured on Live at Five (NBC), and VH-1.
Rates range from $125-$175 depending upon the length of the party. For availability, please, call either (718) 219-5400 or (212) 645-0504 or email her at Mstar@optonline.net.
