“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)
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.
An observation about the recent Mercury retrograde cycle
Now that Mercury is direct again, here is an observation I made about this recent Mercury retrograde cycle:
When the Sun and Mercury were conjunct during the retrograde phase on Mar 4th, a new seed may have indeed been planted in your life, related to the house that Mercury was retrograding through (wherever Pisces is in your birth chart). This new seed/idea/process gathered momentum at the New Moon on Mar 11th. Yet in my experience, I found that clarity around the newly planted seed was obscured until after Mercury went direct on Mar 17th. Read more...
I needed to review and rethink subjects related to the house Mercury was moving backwards in for me (and Mercury retrograde facilitated this, most thoroughly). With the rethinking/reviewing process, I felt compelled to make a decision during Mercury retrograde. However, when Mercury went direct, I found myself making a 180º turn around the whole subject, i.e. changing my mind completely. This is textbook typical for Mercury retrograde as it symbolically reflects the process that the planet goes through in the sky from our visual perspective on earth: stopping, going backwards for awhile, stopping again, and then turning around to go forward again. Now we too can move forward — with fresh experience, insight, and knowledge gathered from the going to and fro/back and forth process.
