“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)
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.
Early on 7/1/2011 there is a New Moon Solar Eclipse. Eclipses “clip” something out. This can be something we have been holding on to, which needs to be released, or something we are glad to see go. Either way, and though this can be difficult to appreciate at the time, the change matures us and advances our soul growth.
The eclipse is at 10º Cancer ♋. The Sabian Symbol for this eclipse is: “A large and beautiful diamond, in the hand of the lapidary, is now to be cut to its full perfection.” Curiously, this symbol echoes the eclipse theme of something of oneself being cut (or clipped, e-clip-sed), so that the facets of self reflect the inner divine light more perfectly.

Some of you have asked me about the Grand Cross. This New Moon eclipse does activate the intense energy formation going on with the outer planets (It will mark the 4th point of the cross squaring Saturn and Uranus and opposing Pluto). We have already been feeling the Grand Cross in the last 2 weeks as the Sun and Mercury have also activated it - this can mean tension, opposition, challenge, stress, etc. as we turn some difficult corners (but rewarding corners which advance us upon our way), and work to find balance within ourselves and our relationships... Saturn, ruler of tradition and structure is in opposition to Uranus, ruler of freedom and sudden dismantling of all that is familiar and comfortable. Both Saturn and Uranus are squared by Pluto, who is taking us down into the underworld, either willingly or by force, for for the purpose of becoming conscious in an area in which we are unconscious, for deep transformation, death and rebirth. This is happening on the personal and collective level...
