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.

Venus ♀ and Mars ♂ unite today...



Venus ♀ and Mars ♂ unite at 10º Taurus ♉ today. Venus is the epitome of harmony and beauty. She is passive, receptive, but gets what she wants through the power of attraction, whereas Mars actively initiates and will fight for and conquer whatever he desires. They are opposites, but have an irresistible need for one another, because together they achieve balance...

Venus is in her home sign in Taurus so she may have the upper hand right now to coax Mars into submission to her wishes for peace and affection...

Wherever 10º Taurus ♉ is in your chart is where you will experience these two archetypes during this influence, which could last a few days on either side of 5/23.

At the same time, I’m still feeling the feisty energy in the realm of communication from the Mercury Mars conjunction of a couple days ago... Especially yesterday and today while the Moon is in Aquarius ♒ inspiring us to be true to ourselves, even if that means not pleasing others.
