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 Balsamic Moon - time to let go

 

 

The Balsamic Moon - the very last phase before the New Moon. In the planting cycle this phase corresponds to the plant dying away; something comes to an end. Time to let go. At the same time you have already planted seeds and have a subtle perception of a new beginning to come, even though it has yet to take form....

Seal meets girl. Seal falls in love with girl. The end.

 

 

Today I happened to see this remarkable video reminding me of the Sabian Symbol for 1º Aries: “A woman has risen from the water, a seal has emerged also, and is embracing her.” Then I realized Jupiter is moving from 0º to 1º Aries right now. Amazing synchronicity. Note that the seal is perfectly personifying Jupiter in Aries. Jupiter = warmhearted and jovial; Aries = bold & courageous, yet innocent.

Saturn goes retrograde

 

 

As Saturn ♄ retrogrades on 1/26 thru 6/12, the commitment to work persistently toward goals and the ability to fulfill responsibilities with discipline, in order to lay a strong foundation for one’s life & being, will be up for assessment. Saturn retrograde gives an opportunity to pause and reflect on one’s progress, catch up on missed steps, and redefine ambitions for the purpose of building something more stable.

Personally I am looking forward to the pause, reflection, and catch up time! All planets direct has been intense!! Check to see where you have Libra ♎ in your chart. Saturn will be moving backwards from 17º Libra to 10º Libra, showing which area of life you have been working hard in and where the reflection/reassessment will be taking place.

 

Since Saturn is about boundaries and responsibilities, one way to harness Saturn Retrograde and the idea of reassessment, is to determine if you need to set better boundaries because you have taken on too much responsibility and feel overwhelmed or overburdened...

Ophiuchus

 

 

There are many constellations not used in astrology. “Ophiuchus was one of the 48 constellations listed by Ptolemy, and it remains one of the 88 modern constellations” (wikipedia). The 12 archetypes used in Western & Vedic astrology are comprehensive and have worked for millennia. Though it is worth contemplating why Ophiuchus has surfaced now in the collective consciousness.

The Moon is in Aries

 

 

The Moon is in Aries ♈, sign of the warrior and pioneer - sign of courageously asserting & exploring. As the Moon waxes to a First Quarter (Jan 12), it is the part of the cycle that suggests continued effort and action to clear a pathway towards manifesting the new vision related to the seed impulse released at the New Moon (Jan 4). All planets being direct support this growth and forward movement.

 

Today someone mentioned to me that she didn’t resonate with the feeling of all planets being direct as she was experiencing barriers towards moving forward...  A couple things come to mind in response to that - for one, this part of the lunar cycle (Waxing Crescent through First Quarter) does require strength and determination to overcome obstacles in order to grow and build whatever you are working on. The seed was planted at the New Moon, but now it has to germinate, sending shoots out into new territory etc, which can be a difficult process... The other thing to keep in mind is that the general transits in the sky do affect all of us, however the way in which they interact with our own charts are individual and primary.

A perfect time for just being

 

 

All planets are direct, so in general this is a great phase for venturing forward on projects, endeavors, and ideas; however today we have a long Void-of-Course Moon from 3:51p-9:57p EST, making this evening a perfect time for just being, and allowing what is to be what it is. Tomorrow is another day for striving...

“No birth-chart is better than any other”

 

 

“No birth-chart is better than any other. One is always better for some one purpose. But as all purposes are equally valuable and necessary in the economy of the greater Whole, each man’s chart is better for the purposes of his life than is anybody else’s.” ~Dane Rudhyar

Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Pisces

 

 

Along with the Solar Eclipse, Jupiter ♃ is exactly conjunct Uranus ♅ today at 27º Pisces ♓. Jupiter expands and adds benevolence to whatever it touches. Uranus represents sudden change, exciting breakthroughs, and progressive/revolutionary ideas. These two planetary archetypes combining in dreamy, mystical Pisces will manifest uniquely for each of us, but in general connection with the divine is enhanced and highlighted.

New Moon Solar Eclipse

 

 

There is a New Moon Solar Eclipse ☀ at 14º Capricorn ♑ on 1/04 at 4:03am EST. The New Moon is a time to notice what new impulse is being born within, to honor your inspiration, and take a step forward. A Solar Eclipse greatly enhances the effects of a New Moon - powerfully charging the new beginning, as something new replaces something old, and propelling us into a new cycle.

Astrology helps one “become what one is”

 

 

One of the gifts astrology offers is to help one “become what one is” (Dane Rudhyar). Rather than trying to fit into a concept of what one thinks one should be or to pursue a path set by others, astrology helps one to discover oneself for who one is, accept oneself, and grow into one’s full and unique potential.
