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.

Waiting until the Full Moon...



If you are trying to make a decision now, we are in the last moments of the Gibbous phase of the Moon, before it becomes Full on Monday at 5:27a EDT, so knowledge is still incomplete. Waiting until the Full Moon to make the decision may feel natural, as the Full Moon corresponds with the part of the cycle when facts come to light; clarity is strong; understanding and the ability to be objective is enhanced.

The Moon is in the Gibbous phase, waxing towards full light on 7/15



The Moon is in the Gibbous phase, waxing towards full light on 7/15. Patience and trust may be required as we wait to see what will be revealed at the Full Moon. When the Moon is full, its light corresponds with objectivity, clarity, and awareness. Something often comes to light or fruition at the Full Moon, but for now we continue our work and allow the process to unfold.
