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.

Mercury turned retrograde early on Thanksgiving morning



It can be helpful to know that small travel issues, communication delays, or business glitches (such as being charged twice for something accidentally or not receiving an email) are more common during Mercury retrograde. I mention this not so that we will expect these things, but so we can try to be flexible and flowing if they do occur. The deeper purpose of this part of Mercury’s cycle is to give us a necessary review period, which may include fixing things or situations that we hadn’t before realized were neglected or in need of extra attention. Or perhaps we didn’t have the time or it just wasn’t the right moment before, because we were too involved with going “forward” in our lives... Mercury is traveling back from 20° to 3º Sagittarius ♐. Where this falls in your chart will be an area of focus over the next few weeks.
