“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)
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.
Venus enters Cancer today. When I read Steven Forrest’s description it resonated strongly so I am sharing it here:
“Venus enters Cancer on the 7th of August and remains there until September 6th… Cancer, as the Cardinal Water sign, epitomizes sensitivity. And sensitivity implies vulnerability… As Venus passes through Cancer this month… We need the kind of love that is based on who we are rather than what we can do or offer. We all need to hear ‘I love you’ a few more times. And that means we need to chance saying it a few more times too! Read more...
You will also feel some shyness, even with people you love. That is Venus-in-Cancer too. Really dropping our defenses and surrendering to love makes us all nervous. We humans are ambivalent about being that vulnerable…While Venus passes through Cancer, you are invited to use your developing discrimination to update your heart’s defensive plans… It will not be as easy as it sounds. It takes a lot of courage to risk vulnerability. But what you are building is that classic Venus-in-Cancer foundation: the kinds of bonds that are strong enough to survive the trauma of death and rebirth. They are forged in vulnerability – vulnerability carefully aimed, but then accepted with ‘no exit.’”
