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.

The second half of Mercury retrograde



Now in the 2nd half of Mercury Retrograde, the re-evaluating and re-envisioning that has been going on could have revealed something — an idea or insight, which though may still be ripening — is beginning to be known and felt within. Yet it might not be fully understood until after Mercury goes direct, after Dec 30th.

How to align with Mercury retrograde



Some examples of how to align with Mercury retrograde energy are: reflect about recent interactions and transactions that may need to be reviewed, reevaluated or adjusted, get back to things you’ve put on the back burner, get back in touch with people with whom you’ve lost contact, catch up on correspondence, and complete unfinished projects.

Mercury retrograde tip of the day



Mercury Retrograde tip of the day (based on personal experience!): Because the chances are high of there being a change of plans or a potential communication gap during this period, call ahead and double check first for cancellations before waking up early on Sunday morning and driving in the snow. :-)

Mercury is retrograde 12/10-12/30



Mercury ☿ is retrograde 12/10-12/30. Mercury rules the mind, communication, media, daily business & travel. When retrograde a planet’s expression tends to be more internal. Externally life may appear to go wrong or backwards, but it is to encourage a contemplative focus, and is part of the ebb and flow. Regarding business, decisions, and contracts that require sharp thinking or speaking wait until after 12/30 to act, if possible.

Venus in Scorpio, Mercury in Capricorn



Venus re-entered Scorpio last night. Transformative material in relationships could resurface, in the service of growth or deeper bonding. After retrograding back into Libra, Venus is direct now but still passing over old territory - hopefully resolving certain issues - through 12/13. Mercury will be entering Capricorn tonight, supporting integrity in communication and a focus on practical, down-to-earth matters.

Mercury and Mars conjunct



For the last few days, Mercury and Mars have been traveling very close together in Sagittarius. This combination can inspire us to speak our truth boldly and assertively, which is important and freeing. But at the same time, be aware of the possibility of being too blunt, harsh, or reactive!

Mercury’s shadow



We also enter Mercury’s ☿ shadow today, which precedes its retrograde cycle 12/10-12/30. Ground covered from now until the end of December, in Mercury’s domain of communication and day-to-day business, may need to be reviewed or revised at some point in the future. So it’s a good idea to begin giving extra attention to being ultra clear and minding the details.
