“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.

Today the Sun entered its home sign of Leo



Today the Sun entered its home sign: warm-hearted, radiant, and noble Leo ♌. The Leo time of the year is about playfulness, self-expression, and taking center stage in your own life. Acknowledgment and applause is a must for those who have the Leo archetype prominent in their charts! 


*Note: Everyone has each of the 12 signs functioning significantly somewhere in their birth chart. But the signs of your Sun, Moon and Ascendant (rising sign) are most significant.


The evolution from Cancer to Leo goes something like this: Out of Cancer’s visceral creativity and maternal nurturing, grows Leo, who wants to come out of the nest and into the limelight. All the fundamental tending which was received through Cancer builds an inner radiance that now wants to shine out its light.
