“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 spirit of Mercury retrograde, and Venus trine Mars (♀△♂) today



Mercury retrograde can be a time of slowing down and allowing ourselves to tarry/abide/dwell with something that is enriching — or a time to simply be present with something that needs attention. This can be the spirit of Mercury retrograde — letting go of the obsessive drive to go forward... (Things will be moving forward soon enough with Uranus turning direct on 12/10 and Mercury turning direct on 12/13).
