“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.

Gemini Moon conjunct Mars, Sun trine Uranus, and Mercury’s Shadow



7/27: The mood is one of action and drive with Moon conjunct Mars, so one may feel bold and assertive. Also, Sun trine Uranus today is conducive for harmonious alignment with what frees you to be your true self and express your genius.


However, important ideas and decisions made now during Mercury’s shadow (7/15-8/2), can be unstable and may go back and forth for reevaluation during Mercury retrograde (8/2-8/26). This back and forth is likely to apply both personally and collectively (political, national changes and decisions, etc.)... Rather than trying to solidify something now, it is a great time for reflective pondering and, what is for you, revolutionary thinking.


Also, regarding the image above, the Moon is in Gemini ♊ today. Butterflies are a symbol for the Gemini archetype - flitting from one person, idea, or project, etc. to the next - but spending moments of whole-hearted and unfeigned interest with each. Curious and intelligent, Gemini embodies the bliss of soaking up new information. No shrinking back from life here!
