“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.

All planets are direct, but Mars ♂ is slowing down...



Although all planets are direct now, helping us to move forward without obstruction, Mars ♂ is traveling slower than usual in preparation to stop and turn around for his retrograde cycle (1/23-4/13). So the drive forward may not be going as quickly as hoped... Or the current phase could be welcomed as a time for deepening exploration and clarity. Actions taken from mid Nov 2011 (when Mars entered its shadow) thru mid Apr 2012 (when Mars goes direct again) may be reviewed and analyzed in the coming months as Mars retraces his steps backwards and then forwards again. Mars is in Virgo ♍ during this process, supporting us to assert ourselves methodically and conscientiously.
