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 ☿ goes direct tonight



Mercury goes direct tonight at 8:43p EST. While Mercury is changing directions (apparently to us from our perspective on Earth), his trickster ways can be even more active. In response to miscommunications, misunderstandings, delays, or mistakes — I am reminding myself things like: the same word can mean very different things to different people, and there is no real rush, everything in its perfect time, etc. Typically, Mercury retrograde issues can be remedied with a little extra care. And after today, communications, purchases, contracts, and moving forward in general will most likely have less resistance and more momentum.
