“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.

Long periods when the Moon is Void-of-Course



Last week and this week we are having long periods, many hours at a time or full days, when the Moon is Void-of-Course (Since the majority of planets are near the same degrees of the signs they are in, the Moon is having long stretches when it is not making any significant aspects. This is the dynamic which creates the void times).  I’ve found that these long periods “in the void” can be wonderfully peaceful when used for down time, contemplation, visioning, or creative work, etc. If it is possible to postpone important left-brain, linear, or practical demands of life, do so during the Void Moon, and go with the flow. To watch when the Void Moons are happening, here is a calendar.
