“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.

The Uranus Pluto square



Uranus & Pluto are almost square (a stressful aspect, requiring action, resulting in overcoming challenge) and will be exact 7 times in the next 6 years. Low side: Uranus rules hurricanes, explosions, catastrophes - sudden, expected ones. Pluto rules raw power, all forms including nuclear. High side: Uranus = freedom and liberation. Pluto = deep transformation for the purpose of personal and collective empowerment.

“In the past few weeks, during the gateway to this period [the Uranus Pluto square], we have seen the following events occur: civil war in Libya; the end of Mubarak’s thirty year rule in Egypt; unrest in several other Arab countries; the Dalai Lama resigning from political life; a major quake in New Zealand and a 8.9 earthquake in Japan creating tsunamis in the Pacific and a potential nuclear reactor crisis...”  “...It’s quite reasonable to think that our inner lives affect the outer world, as well as vice versa. So we can pray, we can meditate, we can develop in mindfulness. We can heal our own wounds, be a kind witness to ourselves...We can hold clear intention. We can be mindful and wise in our actions and our speech...We can honor the mystical and the numinous, while keeping our feet on the ground. Stay centered. Keep a wide view. Allow wholeness.”
