“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.

Mercury goes retrograde



Mercury goes retrograde at 4:48p EDT until Apr 23. This is not a negative time, but rather the perfect time for a mental retreat inward. It may feel annoying to break one’s usual drive forward because of delays or issues in need of review or repair, but the retrograde period is an organic, necessary, and divine part of the eternal cycle. It can be a time of re-discovery & re-visioning, a time that balances us.

Mercury is turning retrograde at 24º Aries ♈ and going back to 13º Aries. Wherever you have these degrees of Aries in your chart is the house of experience where the bulk of your review, repair, or contemplation will take place.
