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 complexity of today

 

 

Mars square Saturn: the impulse to act may be blocked. Frustrating, but Saturn usually has good reason to make us stop and take heed. Venus trine Pluto: the intensity of facing one’s fears in regard to love or finances, but coming through to the other side, empowered. The Moon is Void all day and Mercury is slowing down to turn direct: things may feel extra blurry, but tomorrow the shift towards clarity is coming.

The power of vulnerability

 

 

Venus (love) is opposite Chiron (the wound) today. There may be a feeling of vulnerability a tangible tension between the expression of love or going towards what one desires and the memory of painful wounds and debilities, or a fear of getting hurt because of them. But there is power in vulnerability. The sheer courage it takes to come face to face with our vulnerabilities is part of living wholeheartedly.

Venus and the Sun oppose Neptune

 

 

With Venus and the Sun opposite Neptune, the urge to escape from ordinary reality may be strong. Anything from fantasy and glamour, to deception, delusion, and addictive behavior, to mystical love and deep communion with the Divine through art, nature, and contemplation is available... And we can use our inspired imagination for conscious creation. 

 

Venus opposes Neptune Sunday at 9:41am EDT, and the Sun opposes Neptune on Monday at 7:28pm EDT. The influence may be felt for a day or two on either side of the exact times...

The Sun, Venus, and Mercury (retrograde) join in radiant Leo

 

 

Today the Sun, Venus, and Mercury are closely aligned together in Leo. The Sun is all about creative self-expression, Venus desires [or demands] love and affection, and Mercury needs and must communicate! This is a potentially sweet combination of energies. With these three celestial bodies in the extravagant sign of Leo, the archetype ruled by the radiant Sun itself, there may be a strong pull to share one’s unique expressions of love and beauty that pour forth from the heart... (But with Mercury still retrograde, and an extra long Void-of-Course Moon yesterday and today, patience is helpful to deal with possible misunderstandings, confusion, and delays.) Read more...

New Moon in Leo

 

 

In honor of the New Moon today in Leo ♌, joining the Sun and Venus also in Leo - here is one of my favorite expressions of the grandness of Leo Lion Love.

Early on 7/13 Venus in Cancer ♋ squares Saturn in Libra ♎

 

 

Here are some of my musings on this aspect: Real love is giving with a spontaneous desire to serve. Being “in love,” in the romantic sense, is wanting with a compulsive desire to get [usually]. What a quantum difference between the two. 

 

The archetype of Venus, though soft and sweet, uses various powers of seduction to fulfill her desires and compensate for a sense of lack. Whereas the archetype of Saturn, though usually thought of negatively because of his harsh and uncompromising nature, on the high side is known for having deep integrity, being conscientious, hard-working, and spiritually responsible (having humility, self-control, and a sense of karma - what goes around comes around).

 

Here’s a more traditional interpretation for Venus square Saturn (♀❏ ♄): 

The desire for love and adoration or beauty and comfort may be in conflict with the actual reality before you. It is a moment to see situations clearly and either solidify worthy foundations and build on them, or let go of that which is not working.

Tonight Venus opposes Pluto, then sextiles Jupiter....

 

 

Tonight Venus opposes Pluto (♀☍♇), then sextiles Jupiter (♀*♃). One manifestation is intensity in matters of the heart... deep processing... pulling up content from the unconscious... and transmuting it into love. Result = expansion of the heart.

July 4-13 Venus connects with all the outer planets

 

 

From 7/4 to 7/13 Venus connects with all the outer planets one after the other - bringing intense focus to relationships and one’s sense of self-worth. Venus will reactivate the Grand Cross - tension, polarization of opposing feelings, and the need for change/transformation that we felt through June - but Venus also makes harmonious aspects supporting spiritual vision, connection, and buoyancy.

Venus in Cancer July 4-28

 

 

7/4 to 7/28 Venus will be in Cancer (♀→ ♋), bringing her warmth and affection inwards - to dwell within her shell - in the home, family, and the deep organic process of growing and healing.

Venus square Neptune true love, soul-mates -- or a mirage?

 

 

Venus ♀ square Neptune ♆ true love, soul-mates or a mirage? When Venus, the planet of love, is in a challenging relationship with Neptune, the planet of divine union but also illusions/fantasy it’s not a bad idea to ask this question... Indeed we can do so without becoming jaded or losing faith in inspired possibilities...
