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.

Mercury is direct

 

 

Mercury is now direct as of 1:40am (eastern time) today (after 3.5 weeks retrograde). Things may progress forward now, though the day or two before and after Mercury changes directions can be a little hectic.

Venus ♀ enters Cancer ♋

 

 

Venus enters Cancer today. When I read Steven Forrest’s description it resonated strongly so I am sharing it here: 

 

“Venus enters Cancer on the 7th of August and remains there until September 6th… Cancer, as the Cardinal Water sign, epitomizes sensitivity. And sensitivity implies vulnerability… As Venus passes through Cancer this month… We need the kind of love that is based on who we are rather than what we can do or offer. We all need to hear ‘I love you’ a few more times. And that means we need to chance saying it a few more times too! Read more...

Mercury retrograde and revisiting old problems

 

 

There are instances when Mercury retrograde seems to bring the necessity of revisiting a problem (or problems) you thought you already solved. The challenge suddenly and mysteriously reappears and demands your attention again. The problem asks for resolution in another dimension of the issue — or at a deeper level. (Sigh) Here we go again! The Full Moon tonight may bring things to a head, and hopefully a light of clarity as well.

Mercury retrograde = review mode

 

 

Mercury retrograde often corresponds to a time period for getting around to matters that were put on the back burner before — for at the time it just didn’t feel right to press forward or it was impossible to do so. But now as Mercury is in review mode — repairs, important conversations, and other timely adjustments may present themselves in a natural way for resolution.

Mars opposite Uranus ♂☍♅

 

 

Mars opposite Uranus ♂☍♅ (exact last night at 10:56pm EDT, but lasting for a few days on either side) is an exciting energy for the nervous system. This will affect different people differently. For those who are sensitive to it depending on how it is aligning with the birth chart, it can be exhilarating and awakening, or anywhere from a little too overstimulating to even dangerous.

Mars triggers the Uranus/Pluto square

 

 

Today Mars triggers the long-term aspect of Uranus square Pluto, which could put some volatility in the air. Uranus square Pluto is happening over the next 3 years. We had the exact square on June 24th and will have 6 more passes of it through 2015. This aspect marks the first significant turning point since the conjunction of Uranus and Pluto back in the 1960’s, which was associated with ubiquitous cultural revolution. Dane Rudhyar calls the first waxing square a “crisis in action.” Tensions have been building… Big changes and all-embracing transformations in the collective as well as the personal sphere are called for during this period.

Astrological Relationship Analysis and Compatibility

 

 

“A mystic will seek to penetrate the veils through constant and arduous meditation practice, whilst the lover, through his feelings for the beloved, will arrive there in his heart. In this sense, human relationship is spiritual practice, with benefits of equal value.” ~Robert P. Blaschke

 

Astrological relationship analysis is one of my favorite areas of study. While astrological knowledge certainly can’t give any guarantees about whether a relationship will be “successful” or not, it can provide insights into the everyday dynamics of a relationship as well as give some clues about the underlying spiritual journey two people have together. Below is a compilation of gems I have gleaned from my studies as well as observations taken from client experiences and personal experience.

Capricorn ♑ Full Moon

 

 

Today there is a Full Moon in Capricorn. Full Moons correspond with something coming to a head or coming to light, developing to a state of full clarity. On a deep soul level Capricorn is about the commitment to being responsible and behaving in alignment with one’s sense of integrity. This Full Moon may light up an awareness of where one has not lived up to that commitment and self-truth, internally or with others, and the consequences of that. Or conversely, it may come to light where one has lived up to one’s internal standards, and the peace that comes from doing so.

Mars ♂ moving forward into fresh new territory

 

 

Mars has been through quite a process over the last several months. In Nov 2011, it entered its pre-retrograde shadow period while in the sign of Virgo ♍ — meaning: issues related to the masculine within, possibly issues with actual men in one’s life, the drive and energy to assert oneself, and the enthusiasm to go after what is desired — all these were bound to be slowed down and analyzed carefully, with some false starts and reconsiderations made through the retrograde phase (Jan 23-Apr 15, 2012). Then it was not until Jun 19th that Mars completed its post-retrograde shadow period. So in effect, after a long inward process of integrating all that has been learned and understood over the last several months, Mars is now for the first time since November moving forward full steam ahead, with greater clarity and preparation, ready to pioneer into fresh new territory.
