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.

New Moon in Capricorn ♑

 

 

On Christmas Eve there is a New Moon in Capricorn ♑ (at 1:06p EST). The New Moon is the phase of the cycle when a seed is sown. And during this time of year, around the Winter Solstice, it is the deepest, darkest, and most fertile time within. One might find oneself designing new aspirations and visualizing new beginnings.

Venus is in Aquarius ♒

 

 

Venus is in Aquarius ♒ from Dec 20-Jan 13. The modern ruler of Aquarius is Uranus ♅. Uranus rules flashes of intuition that come with sudden clarity. Venus rules all things to do with love, relationships, beauty, and art — so the intuitions that come may be especially connected with these Venus areas… One way to discern whether it is a well-founded intuition is if it feels like it came from outside of your ordinary mind and if you have a sense of knowing that accompanies it (despite any resistance to it such as fear).

The Winter Solstice

 

 

Dec 21-22 is the Winter Solstice, as the Sun shifts from buoyant, arrows flying Sagittarius ♐, to grounded, efficient Capricorn ♑. The Sagittarius archetype persistently aims for high goals. This persistence develops into the Capricorn archetype, where one brings the process down to earth and climbs the mountain one step at a time.“While each sign seems to be an antidote to its immediate predecessor in the zodiac, each one also comes equipped with the capability to take the gift of the preceding sign to the next level” (Kimberly Maxwell & Jim Schultz). Capricorn “gives stability and substance to the metaphysical, religious or social enthusiasm of Sagittarius… Capricorn puts to practical use what Sagittarius has released” (Dane Rudhyar).

Mercury ☿ goes direct tonight

 

 

Mercury goes direct tonight at 8:43p EST. While Mercury is changing directions (apparently to us from our perspective on Earth), his trickster ways can be even more active. In response to miscommunications, misunderstandings, delays, or mistakes — I am reminding myself things like: the same word can mean very different things to different people, and there is no real rush, everything in its perfect time, etc. Typically, Mercury retrograde issues can be remedied with a little extra care. And after today, communications, purchases, contracts, and moving forward in general will most likely have less resistance and more momentum.

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini ♊

 

 

There was a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse this morning, just hours after Uranus turned direct (that’s a lot of intensity in a short period of time). If you have any planets or points in your birth chart around 18º Gemini ♊ or Sagittarius ♐, this eclipse is especially significant for you. Full Moons represent the culmination of the lunar month, increased emotional sensitivity, but also greater clarity. Eclipses increase the magnitude of all of this in a quantum way. Eclipses can also “clip” something out of one’s life, that which is stagnant and in need of transformation.

Uranus ♅ turns direct

 

 

Early on Dec 10, Uranus ♅, the planet of lightning bolt change, revolution, and freedom, turns direct after five months of being retrograde. Generally, when an outer planet is retrograde, its influence is experienced more on the internal level. When it stations (the time period when it slows down and appears to change direction), its influence is intensified and dramatic. Once it turns direct, outward manifestation becomes more apparent. Uranus is turning direct at the very beginning of Aries ♈, the part of the zodiac that epitomizes abundant raw energy and fresh new beginnings. This is a potent shift.

The spirit of Mercury retrograde, and Venus trine Mars (♀△♂) today

 

 

Mercury retrograde can be a time of slowing down and allowing ourselves to tarry/abide/dwell with something that is enriching — or a time to simply be present with something that needs attention. This can be the spirit of Mercury retrograde — letting go of the obsessive drive to go forward... (Things will be moving forward soon enough with Uranus turning direct on 12/10 and Mercury turning direct on 12/13).

Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius ♐ (Nov 24-Dec 13)

 

 

Sagittarius is sometimes known as the archetype that likes to share thoughts, beliefs, and wisdom in an enthusiastic and outspoken manner. Jupiter, the large planet that rules Sagittarius, expands everything connected to it. When Mercury is in Sagittarius — we may like to express ourselves — a lot. However when Mercury is retrograde, our minds may not be as clear, we may not have all the facts yet, we may misunderstand what we hear, or we may say too much (but we may also be more intuitive, imaginative, and free thinking during Merc retro)! Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius can be a potent combination — challenging us to be more reflective, mindful, and sensitive about what we say, how we say it, and when we share…

Astrology and Judaism

 

 

In honor of the Sun’s passage through the sign of Sagittarius ♐ — the archetype of expanding one’s understanding of philosophical and spiritual truths — here is an excerpt from an interesting article entitled “Kabbalah and Astrology” by Rabbi Max Weiman...

  

Question:

What is the Jewish view of astrology?

 

Answer: 

The Bible takes a strong negative stand on Astrology. Yet, Kabbalah, the ancient Jewish mystical tradition, has sources that are based on astrological principles. Read more...

Venus trine Jupiter (♀△♃)

 

 

Today Venus in Capricorn trines Jupiter in Taurus — the two benefics make a harmonious connection. Venus, the archetype of love, and Jupiter, the archetype of opportunity, meet one another for a sweet rendezvous. Jupiter is confident and optimistic, Venus is beautiful and affectionate. Both know how to enjoy life to the fullest, but since they are currently in earth signs, it is a grounded and levelheaded occasion.
