“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 Moon is triggering the tense T-square in the sky



Last night and today the Moon is triggering the tense T-square in the sky (first conjunct Uranus ♅, then square Pluto ♇, then opposite Saturn ♄). Turbulent feelings and thoughts, and seemingly irreconcilable conflicts, which we have been working with over the last couple months, may have again bubbled or burst up to the surface to be dealt with... With the Moon in Aries ♈, we may act decisively. 


Even if the conflict appears external, it is primarily an internal one between parts of self. Some examples are: the need for partnership vs. the need for independence, maintaining tradition vs. breaking new ground, holding on to the familiar vs. taking a leap of faith, or confronting vs. avoiding, etc.
