hi bestie!

My name is María Allma. I am the founder, editor, and the sassy Libra you see in all of Holistic Bestie content, workshop, and social media. I was born and raised in Lima – Peru, and I am currently based in Portland – Oregon. I'm a psychology student, a Newfield-Network certified transformational coach, a passionate student of astrology, a speaker, an entrepreneur, and a philanthropist. I'm also in the process of transitioning from male to female, which makes me a trans woman.❤️


I'm a creative, an optimist, an empath, a sorcerer, an ambitious dreamer, and sort of a gypsy. I've spent the past decade exploring the world. I moved to England in 2013, dedicated my early twenties to running transformational workshops for women in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and my native Peru, and moved to the United States in 2017. I'm currently working on my first book and Psychology Degree, while running Holistic Bestie, and being a single father to two beautiful cats: Raffaello and Leonarda.

I'll be your personal coach, astrologer, and cheerleader.

Why astrology?


Astrology doesn't define you. It is meant to improve you and your life, it is meant to enrich your human experience. It has enriched mine in countless ways, and I want to share it all with you.


The more attention I began paying to the rhythms, patterns, and geometry of my life, the more critical Astrology became for me. I find our microcosmic human experiences often reflected by the planets, stars, and transits in the macrocosm. Where I used to see fear, uncertainty, and negativity, I now find cycles, signals, and synchronicities that give me reassurance, hope, and security instead.

My mission is to inspire, empower, and educate through the use of Astrology. I create monthly lunar manifestation and healing workshops, weekly empowering content, and beautiful tools to make you fall in love with the cosmos, magic, and your own power all over again. I blend astrology with human consciousness, energy and shadow work, manifestation techniques, numerology, meditation, among other holistic practices.


I use Astrology to cheer people up, to give hope, to provide relief, to heal, to entertain, to educate, to empower. Everything on Holistic Bestie is aligned with the Sun’s transits and Moon's phases. Lunar synchronization is a millenary practice used by the Sumerians, Egyptians, Romans, Chinese, Incas, Mayas, and every single civilization that has preceded us. From tides, menstruation, DNA, and molecular structures to the galaxies and events in the cosmos, there is a mysterious pattern that ‘modern’ science is not able to explain yet.​

I follow this pattern. I go by the Solstices and the Equinoxes (just like our ancestors), I track my mood, goals, and finances using the Moon's phases, I celebrate my achievements and feast with every Full Moon! I have built the life I used to dream of when I was a child and Astrology is a big part of it. Let me teach you how.
