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.

The Gifts of Mercury Retrograde



Here are a few gifts I have observed over the last few days since Mercury turned back to review old ground. They say these kind of things happen during Mercury retrograde, and it’s true - they really do! 

  • Reconnecting with people to communicate about and resolve old issues originating in the past. 
  • Reconnecting with people to communicate truths and feelings that were left unsaid in the past.
  • Becoming aware of and fixing logistical, technical, business-related, or other glitches originating in the past. (This is the one that can be frustrating, but the good news is that the awareness of the problem is what provides the opportunity to fix it!)
