Offering in-person consultations in Asheville, NC



Dear Asheville friends and astrology enthusiasts,
I am spending some time in my beloved Asheville, NC after being away for many months, so anyone who has been wanting an in-person astro consultation, please contact me! Astrology is such a wonderful tool for self-knowledge and exploration and a help in times of challenge or transition. It can facilitate tremendous insight, understanding, and peace, as well as provide timelines for certain archetypal or energetic influences affecting our lives and inner states of being. I appreciate sliding scales, so I also offer one to accommodate different life situations. (Also, I continue to be available over the phone or Skype for others in different locations.) 
If you are interested in scheduling an appointment, contact me

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.


The three main ways I investigate relationships:

The gifts of astrology



It is a privilege to hear a person’s story and then to see and understand the inside story from the chart. Permission to be oneself and to follow one’s own unique path, as well as compassion for the challenges and insight into potentials - are some of the gifts of astrology

I probably won稚 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).

Now offering digital audio recordings of all sessions



After having clients tell me it was absolutely necessary that I begin recording sessions, I now have a digital voice recorder and can email you an audio file of the session!

This is an example of using Mercury retrograde to follow up on things one has been meaning to get around to doing.
