“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.

7/9: Uranus goes retrograde



7/9: Uranus ♅, the planet of authentic individuality goes retrograde at 4º34’ Aries ♈ (through Dec 10). Uranus represents the archetype of change and the need to break free from stagnation or a pattern that is no longer suitable for your current stage of personal growth. Sometimes this is at all costs, so Uranus is often associated with sudden or shocking, lightning-like shifts. When a planet changes directions it is most powerfully felt. Uranus moves through the zodiac slowly, so any planets or points in your chart in the early degrees may be receiving a significant hit and signaling a call for freedom, which will be felt over a period of months. This may be happening harmoniously or stressfully. Either way, the higher mind is at work. The retrograde period gives a chance to integrate and absorb the major changes that may be taking place internally or in your life.
