Astrological Counseling

“My evenings are taken up very largely with astrology. I make horoscopic calculations in order to find a clue to the core of psychological truth. Some remarkable things have turned up which will certainly appear incredible to you.”

~Carl Jung in a letter to Sigmund Freud (June 12, 1911)

 

Astrological Counseling

I offer astrological counseling for psycho-spiritual exploration, understanding, and transformation. Astrology utilized in this way can be a missing key for deep inner work and can shed light on the path towards greater harmony with the natural rhythms and cycles of one’s life journey. My approach to astrology is to share the potentials and opportunities I see while exploring how the symbols and archetypes are manifesting uniquely for each individual. Astrology is a wonderful tool for self-knowledge and a help in times of challenge or transition. It can facilitate tremendous insight and peace, as well as provide timelines for certain archetypal or energetic influences reflected in our lives and inner states of being. Consultations available for birth chart exploration, current influences, relationship dynamics, and timing for important events.

Churchill, Hitler, and Reagan used astrology?

 

 

“Does it worry you that the high muck-a-mucks of our political, legal, medical and economic systems use astrology? During World War II, Churchill had several astrologers working for him. He didn’t have to believe in astrology, but he wanted to know what Hitler’s astrologers were telling him. Even President Reagan has admitted he believes in astrology, so much so that his birth time is, in reality, different from the ones we see printed in the magazines...”

Neptune enters Pisces

 

 

With the powerful and dynamic celestial events as of late, today we have a softening & gentle, yet significant influence: Neptune, the planet of spirituality, enters it’s corresponding sign, Pisces. This is a big shift as Neptune will be spending the next 14 years in the shimmery waters of Pisces (minus a short retrograde into Aquarius)! Compassion, unity consciousness, and unconditional love are strongly supported!

Neptune in Pisces wisdom: “A Sufi story tells of a student who complains to his teacher about the cruel realities of the world. The teacher replies, ‘Yes, of course, but if it weren’t for the hidden work of those who pray, imagine, dream, and act compassionately when the opportunity presents itself, things would be much worse.’” ~Caroline Casey

New Moon in Aries, Mars conjunct Uranus

 

 

There is a New Moon in Aries today activating the Sun, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, & Uranus also in Aries(!), the archetype of brave new beginnings. A perfect modus operandi for all this fiery energy: “Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it” (Johann Von Goethe). With Mercury retrograde and an opposition to Saturn, however, we may feel some resistance holding us back.

The planets mentioned above are in various degrees of Aries, but also today, Mars meets up with Uranus in the same degree of early Aries. This is a super high octane combination!!

I probably won’t schedule you during a Void-of-Course Moon

 

 

For those of you who have tried to schedule with me during a “Void-of-Course Moon” and came up against my request to re-schedule, check out this article for an explanation about the do’s and don’ts of VOC Moons!

Also, if you would like to follow the Void Moons, here is a calendar.

 

Note that right now we are in an extra long VOC Moon time: Thu 3/31 at 9:43a until Sat 4/2 at 7:16a).

Mercury goes retrograde

 

 

Mercury goes retrograde at 4:48p EDT until Apr 23. This is not a negative time, but rather the perfect time for a mental retreat inward. It may feel annoying to break one’s usual drive forward because of delays or issues in need of review or repair, but the retrograde period is an organic, necessary, and divine part of the eternal cycle. It can be a time of re-discovery & re-visioning, a time that balances us.

Mercury is turning retrograde at 24º Aries ♈ and going back to 13º Aries. Wherever you have these degrees of Aries in your chart is the house of experience where the bulk of your review, repair, or contemplation will take place.

Venus joins forces with Chiron

 

 

Venus brings her capacity for love and interpersonal relatedness to join forces with Chiron today, the Wounded Healer. If hurt feelings bubble up to the surface, we can trust they are coming up to be seen, heard, understood, and healed.

We must “stand the tension of the opposites”

 

 

Perhaps there is a part that wants to rush forward into a new adventure, ready for the journey ahead, and feeling optimism and faith. Yet there is another part that is cautious, remembering past failures, and shrewdly weighing the pros & cons. 3/28: Jupiter in Aries (sign of “I”) opposition Saturn retrograde in Libra (sign of “we”). Yes, these energies may feel in conflict, yet they balance and temper one another.

This is the last of 3 oppositions between Jupiter and Saturn in this sequence - the first was on May 23 2010, the second on August 16 2010. This may correlate with a final trigger of a certain internal conflict/reconciliation regarding these two different planets (principles) now in opposite signs. Jupiter is about expansion, Saturn is about consolidation...

Jung suggests that we must “stand the tension of the opposites” in order to transcend them... “The apparently unendurable conflict is proof of the rightness of your life. A life without inner contradiction is either only half a life or else a life in the Beyond... The self is made manifest in the opposites and in the conflict between them.”
-C.G. Jung

Venus, goddess of love, kisses dreamy Neptune

 

 

May we soak up this moment, as Venus, goddess of love, kisses dreamy Neptune tonight, right before entering his sign, Pisces, for 3 1/2 weeks. Perhaps boundaries melt away, and a glimpse of union is felt. You float gently, letting imagination guide. The voice of intuition speaks within inspiring us towards higher expressions of love & creativity... Or, there might be confusion, illusion, or over-idealization.

The Sun conjunct Uranus in Aries

 

 

Powerful energies are at play today! There is a potential for surprising little fires to blaze up suddenly - as the Sun, fresh into Aries ♈, sign of the archetypal warrior - lights up and heats up freedom-loving, revolutionary Uranus ♅. Aries helps us develop genuine courage and Uranus urges us towards integrated authentic self-expression, resonating with inner pressing truths.

The “Super Moon”

 

 

The Full “Super Moon,” said to have a stronger pull on the tides of the oceans and the blood in our bodies... Unpredictable and shocking is still in the air. Uranus seeks change for the purpose of freeing us from ego limitations.  I am envisioning best possible outcomes (The Moon opposes Uranus today, and after the Sun enters Aries on 3/20, marking the Spring Equinox, the Sun conjoins Uranus on 3/21)!
