Time goes quickly during an astrology session. I suggest 90 minutes for our first meeting. This allows us to go over your natal chart in detail and, possibly, allows some time to converse about a current issue or recurring theme. Even if you’ve previously considered your natal chart with another astrologery, discussion of your chart gives me a foundation in how you respond to the attributes and challenges indicated in your chart. Also, response to such things changes over time. For example, even if we don’t acknowledge it, at age 40 we likely approach work, relationships, and finances very differently than we did at age 20. Likewise, your considerations around age 60 and onward are characterized by different needs and desires than those felt earler in life. All are valid and can be disconcerting.
Please note that I do not read for people under age 18. I do not read for third parties. Also, I cannot give you information about medical or legal matters. As an Associate Member, I adhere to the code of ethics outlined by the American Federation of Astrologers.
SESSIONS AND HOW TO BOOK
TERMS – Current Information for New and Returning Clients
As my client, you understand that I cannot advise you on medical or legal matters. Until mid-October 2018, my practice is limited to 8 sessions per week. I am generally booked about three to four weeks out, with a wait list available. As my client you understand that
NEW CLIENT – 90 Minute Session
For new clients, I look first at your natal chart, which is a map of the sky at the moment you were born. I do not believe that a person is born with hard and fast instructions, but you did bring a few “notes to self.” This is the first step to understanding how you may interact with influences at hand today. This is a recorded 90 minute session which will be sent by cloud-based transfer for you to download at home.
We can meet in person, by Facetime, or Skype. Book your initial consultation and then email your exact birth information using the email form below. Should you have questions, email me through the form. We can then discuss a mutually agreable time to talk.
If we’ve already discussed your natal chart, you are a returning client. For you I provide a 90 minute, 60 minute or 30 minute option. Feel free to contact me or read the information to decide which returning client option is best for you. Once you pay for the consultation, please email me so that we can discuss a mutually agreeable time. If you name has changed, please remind me of your former sirname, so that I may find your chart.

MY APPROACH TO ASTROLOGY SESSIONS
As an astrologer I provide consultations to adult individuals.
Your first consultation with me is about your natal chart. It covers the influences in the sky at the moment of your birth. Astrology is like a report of road conditions. Some situations may be seen as more challenging than others, but all choices are yours.
Once I have seen your chart we can move on to take a look at the energetics assembling around your path currently and in the near term. There are several ways to do this and we’ll examine things to see which astrological assessment approach may best be used at this time.
I am not a fortune teller and I do not identify things that fate has designed for you. Here’s why. I, myself, have had dozens of sessions with astrologers since 1973. When I went to an astrologer, I went because I felt something was eluding me. I really wanted someone who spoke my language to turn on a light or to help me through the fog. My experience has been that astrologers who pigeonhole a client’s character or attitudes, or who define hard and fast outcomes, have been wrong about me, my path and events. The ones who have been helpful are those who have identified the influences that may be present and listened when I told them how they manifested in my life. What I did with that information was then up to me. I believe that is how it should be.
I also teach the chit system, or “casting of lots,” which is a highly personalized and focused form of divination, and I guide individuals in designing rituals to observe and refocus energy
My position is that you have an ability to connect with the situations, people and choices that are unique to your life. Sometimes we feel headed down a hallway filled with doors. Behind each door is a possibility. When we lose our innate compass, we look for help.
When someone wants to talk with an astrologer, myself included, it is because of “mission creep.” There is a feeling that one needs to get out the map or stop to ask a local. My mission in consulting with you is to uncover your natural fortification, so that you can reconnect and regain or build a sense of confidence.
It is my personal belief that we arrive in the world with intentions and inclinations that we may follow or ignore throughout life. The results are the path we take, the experiences we invite, and the results we own. Under the best circumstances, we learn to converse with our own compass, or “wise autonomy” (as phrased by Esther / Abraham Hicks).
There are times in life when a person feels profoundly and truly lost, emotionally or psychologically. I think that when one needs medical help, it is time for a doctor. Likewise, when one needs emotional help, it is time for a counselor or psychologist. An astrologer is about the road and the map. If your vehicle needs maintenance, that is a matter for a different kind of professional.
