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.

Mars square Pluto, Mercury conjunct Jupiter



There is a confrontation between Mars, feisty god of war, and Pluto, lord of the underworld. Unconscious factors may be fueling strong emotions and creating tension. Can we face our demons, let go of the compelling drive to control, & express our truths with self-awareness? Action may feel urgent as the process of transformation is sparked, yet with Mercury retrograde, we are still in a period of inward reflection.

Also, tonight Mercury (retrograde) conjoins Jupiter, stimulating a review of internal connections or outer reconnections, and inspiring copious communication. Through it there is an opportunity for optimism and faith - that any friction, which may feel counter to our well-being, is actually serving to expand and lift consciousness.
