“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.

Neptune goes retrograde today for 5 months



Neptune ♆, the planet of union with the Divine, subtle perceptions of the inner realms, and also paradoxically delusion and glamour - went retrograde today. The retrograde phase (now through mid Nov) reveals the process of discerning truth from deception and reality from illusion. This is the time to listen carefully to your intuition, review what you believe to be true, and align with your spiritual path.

I read this headline today, which deepened my understanding of Neptune retrograde:
“A federal grand jury charged two-time presidential candidate John Edwards on Friday with soliciting and covering up the secret spending of more than $925,000 to hide his mistress and their baby during the peak of his 2008 campaign for the White House.”

Spiritual alignment will happen sooner or later, with our conscious intention or not, but it’s more pleasant to go willingly toward Truth, instead of being caught and imprisoned by that which we would prefer to deny.
