“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.

Astrological speculations about Jane Eyre



How I love Jane Eyre. The recent film is the best screen version ever! I’ve been imagining Jane’s chart. Clearly a prominent Saturn ♄: hard work, struggle, but also great inner strength and incredible integrity. And Pluto ♇: death and the underworld - as a child she lost her parents, uncle, good friend, and suffered other people’s shadow projections and abuse; yet she possesses power, intensity, and depth.

There are many possibilities for her chart, but here’s a good guess:
Aries ♈ Sun - at her core Jane is independent, impulsive, passionate, courageous, and has a compelling need for freedom.
Scorpio ♏ Moon - she is strong-willed, has a private nature, penetrating glance, and intense emotions smoldering beneath the surface.
Virgo ♍ rising - Jane developed her persona to be of service and is abundantly clever, diligent, and skillful.
An emphasized 12th house - she is described as ‘obscure’ and ‘otherworldly.’ She experiences tremendous denial in the outward world; yet she is also talented with inspired artistic ability.
These are a few of the archetypes that Jane Eyre seems to strongly embody. Thoughts?

*By the way, this activity of analyzing literature is very in line with the current transit of Mercury ☿ (analysis) conjunct ☌ Venus ♀ (art)
