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.

Refuge in the garden :: Jai Ma :: Happy Taurus New Moon



I’m grateful to have just celebrated Mother’s Day with my wonderful mother. Yet every day is Mother’s Day for me these days, in the sense that every day is a celebration of the Great Mother, our Divine Mother. Mother Nature has become my refuge more and more.


Jai (Victory to! Celebration of) 

Ma (Universal Mother / Divine Feminine)


I realized that I have a strong desire to leave the internet even more (I haven’t been on social media much for years), and I have a strong need to continue to try to figure out how to spend less time sitting at my desk. My well-being is requiring I spend more time outside. I’m grateful I have some vegetables and herbs to tend in the garden, and I hope to continue to learn how to live more in sync with Nature. So please forgive my outdated website. I am still contemplating what to do with this 11 year old situation!


Yet, I am also still in a deep study and practice of astrology. Ironically, I think I am a better astrologer now than before when I was actively writing articles and advertising my services, simply because I’ve been studying and practicing longer. So please reach out if you want a consultation. Or feel free to reach out just to say hello. I’m always happy to hear from you!
