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.

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.

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer ♋



Early on 7/1/2011 there is a New Moon Solar Eclipse. Eclipses “clip” something out. This can be something we have been holding on to, which needs to be released, or something we are glad to see go. Either way, and though this can be difficult to appreciate at the time, the change matures us and advances our soul growth.

The eclipse is at 10º Cancer ♋. The Sabian Symbol for this eclipse is: “A large and beautiful diamond, in the hand of the lapidary, is now to be cut to its full perfection.” Curiously, this symbol echoes the eclipse theme of something of oneself being cut (or clipped, e-clip-sed), so that the facets of self reflect the inner divine light more perfectly.

Powerful forces within and without



Jun 27-28: Powerful forces within and without are exerting pressure. Pluto challenges us to the core to surrender that which on the spiritual level is no longer serving us. It can feel like a death. But rebirth into a more self-empowered place must follow (Sun opposite Pluto ☉☍♇).

‎A comment from an astrology friend about this aspect: “Living with and grappling with one’s demons in that underworld subconscious zone below the rational...” In this painting the mythological god, Pluto/Hades, is holding a key. Another comment from the same wise friend in regard to this aspect and the symbolism of the painting: “Facing and dealing with the ‘hot’ radioactive content at the core of the psyche and transforming it is the key. Otherwise it destroys you.”

Sun square Uranus



Sudden insights, unexpected changes, or surprises may be part of this day as the urge for freedom and the spiritual demand for transcendental breakthroughs challenge the status quo (Sun square Uranus ☉❐ ♅).

Taking a more expansive view



Taking a more expansive view is possible tonight, and will support identifying with and living one’s greater potential (Sun sextile Jupiter ☉*♃).

Itís a day ideal for contemplation, meditation, dreaming, and imagining



The Moon is in Pisces ♓ and Void-of-Course all day, so it’s a day ideal for contemplation, meditation, dreaming, and imagining. Envision solutions and outcomes that are best for you and the higher good. Tomorrow The Moon will enter Aries ♈, a perfect time to initiate action inspired by today’s receptivity and dynamic stillness.


Also today, the Sun☉trined Neptune ♆ (10:08aEDT), amplifying the dreamlike quality and spiritual essence of the day. At the same time Mars ♂ squared Neptune ♆ (2:46aEDT), obscuring our motivations and assertions, emphasizing again the wisdom in waiting until tomorrow to take important actions, if possible. There is a potential for lack of clarity - what’s “real” or “true” may be colored by subjectivity, yet the voice of intuition may also be strong today. How to sort through it all? I’m not sure, but I can guess it’s not via the ego’s route...

The Sun enters Cancer ♋ and we enter the Summer



Today the Sun enters Cancer ♋ and we enter the Summer, the time of fruition. Cancer is ruled by the softly lustrous and soulful Moon. The sign of the Crab, known to be nurturing, protective, and sensitive can also be silly and loony (from lunar). Here’s a classic for all you Moon children!

The spirit of Moon in Aquarius



The Moon has been in Aquarius ♒ all weekend continuing through the afternoon today. The spirit of Moon in Aquarius is about being true to yourself and accepting who you are, without trying to fit into other people’s concepts of what you should be, and more importantly without trying to fit into your own concepts of what you should be. Rather it is about allowing yourself the freedom to be your unique being, as you are.

Mercury ☿ makes multiple connections



6/17-6/19: Our minds and mouths could be ultra active as Mercury ☿, ruler of thoughts and words, makes multiple connections (above and so below): trines Neptune ♆ - we open to the voice of intuition and inspiration; sextiles Jupiter - our perspectives broaden; squares Uranus - sudden news or surprises; trines Chiron - potential for healing conversations; and opposes Pluto - deep transformative truths revealed...
