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.

What a fitting Motherís Day!



 The Moon, always strongly affecting our mood, and symbolic of the inner Feminine, is in intimate Cancer ♋, archetype of the Great Mother. It is a joy for the Mother goddess to channel new life, nurture, & protect. She knows instinctively how to care for & grow the small & vulnerable. Even in our inevitable human-ness the mother in each of us embodies selfless service & unconditional love.

The glyph for Cancer ♋ used to be a spiral, a major archetypal symbol of the womb-center that expands with new life developing, and a symbol for development in general. It is seen in nature.
