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.

Venus ♀ and Mars ♂ unite today...

 

 

Venus ♀ and Mars ♂ unite at 10º Taurus ♉ today. Venus is the epitome of harmony and beauty. She is passive, receptive, but gets what she wants through the power of attraction, whereas Mars actively initiates and will fight for and conquer whatever he desires. They are opposites, but have an irresistible need for one another, because together they achieve balance...

Venus is in her home sign in Taurus so she may have the upper hand right now to coax Mars into submission to her wishes for peace and affection...

Wherever 10º Taurus ♉ is in your chart is where you will experience these two archetypes during this influence, which could last a few days on either side of 5/23.

At the same time, I’m still feeling the feisty energy in the realm of communication from the Mercury Mars conjunction of a couple days ago... Especially yesterday and today while the Moon is in Aquarius ♒ inspiring us to be true to ourselves, even if that means not pleasing others.

Today the Sun enters airy, curious, and quick-witted Gemini ♊

 

 

Today the Sun moved from steady, deliberate, and earth-centered Taurus ♉ into airy, curious, and quick-witted Gemini ♊. People with strong Gemini playing through them seem to be able to relate to everything and everyone. So, talking and sharing with them is lively and interesting, and oftentimes a feeling of connection arises with ease.

Mercury ☿ the Messenger, and Mars ♂ the Warrior, merge energies in Taurus ♉...

 

 

Mercury ☿ the Messenger, and Mars ♂ the Warrior, merge energies (at 7º Taurus ♉). Communication and transportation could be furiously determined. Razor blade mouths and road rage -OR- the willingness to integrate and communicate a new positive impulse in alignment with your true values... This influence may be felt for a day or two on either side of 5/20.

Square to Neptune overactive imagination or creative mystical imagination?

 

 

This Full Moon on 5/17 was square to Neptune ♆, so although something comes to light once the Moon reaches fullness (lighting up the night - lighting up that which was previously dark), the square to Neptune may have added confusion or an overactive imagination (or creative mystical imagination, on the higher side) into the mix, only to be seen more clearly now, a day or two after the Full Moon.

Full Moon in Scorpio ♏

 

 

 Full Moon in Scorpio ♏ (today, 5/17/2011 at 7:09am EDT at 26 ♏13). The Full Moon is the crescendo of the lunar cycle and represents things coming to fruition. The waxing Moon (from new to full) is the ideal time to initiate beginnings. It has been known since ancient times to be the best time to plant above ground crops, as the energy is building and supportive of growth. The waning moon (from full to new) is the best time to make adjustments and release.


To inquire deeper into what this Full Moon in Scorpio means for you, look to see where you have Scorpio ♏ in your chart and think back to the beginning of November 2010, when we had the New Moon in Scorpio. Perhaps there was a new beginning of some sort in the area of life represented in your chart where you have Scorpio, and now you can see clearly what has come to light and grown forth in that same area.Read more...

Enter the peace of Taurus ♉

 

 

4 planets have moved from fiery fast acting Aries ♈ to calm slow but steady Taurus ♉. How to align with all this Taurus energy in the ether? By tuning into the now experience of the body, the mind begins to quiet, and we take notice more profoundly the warmth of the sun, taste of the food, magical sound of the voice... By giving ourselves the time to fully know the world through our senses, we enter the peace of Taurus.

Today could be a magical day!

 

 

There is a potential for love, beauty, abundance, and joy to vibrantly flow - everywhere. Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter gather at 25º Aries. The Sabian Symbol for this special meeting: “A double promise is revealed by some suggestive event of both immediate or literal and sentimental significance.” ...The word ‘promise’ is associated with divine assurance of one’s ultimate wholeness.

Astrological speculations about Jane Eyre

 

 

How I love Jane Eyre. The recent film is the best screen version ever! I’ve been imagining Jane’s chart. Clearly a prominent Saturn ♄: hard work, struggle, but also great inner strength and incredible integrity. And Pluto ♇: death and the underworld - as a child she lost her parents, uncle, good friend, and suffered other people’s shadow projections and abuse; yet she possesses power, intensity, and depth.

There are many possibilities for her chart, but here’s a good guess:
Aries ♈ Sun - at her core Jane is independent, impulsive, passionate, courageous, and has a compelling need for freedom.
Scorpio ♏ Moon - she is strong-willed, has a private nature, penetrating glance, and intense emotions smoldering beneath the surface.
Virgo ♍ rising - Jane developed her persona to be of service and is abundantly clever, diligent, and skillful.
An emphasized 12th house - she is described as ‘obscure’ and ‘otherworldly.’ She experiences tremendous denial in the outward world; yet she is also talented with inspired artistic ability.
These are a few of the archetypes that Jane Eyre seems to strongly embody. Thoughts?

*By the way, this activity of analyzing literature is very in line with the current transit of Mercury ☿ (analysis) conjunct ☌ Venus ♀ (art)

Spread the word of love!

 

 

Think, speak, remember, share and connect with love. For a couple weeks light-footed Mercury ☿ (Hermes), the Messenger god, and beautiful Venus ♀ (Aphrodite), goddess of love, are extra close and twice they merge. First on 5/9 in Aries ♈ - encouraging new, bold, and spirited expressions. Then on 5/16 in Taurus ♉ - inspiring us to maintain serenity, grounded-ness, and beauty in relationships.
