Astrology Services

I am currently preparing 10 different types of astrological services, which will become progressively available over time. Scroll down to find out more.

 

Why book an astrology consultation?

Astrology, as a field of knowledge and technique, is the study of time cycles and the meaning of patterns. Astrological inquiry investigates the relationships and correlations between the movements of the solar system (our larger ecosystem) and the various internal shifts and outward expressions of human life.

An astrology consultation with a skilled practitioner can deepen your self-understanding and provide guidance for the future by giving you access to the latent cosmic symbolism that spirals through your life.

While a biologist can read the language of your cellular DNA, an astrologer can read the language of your cosmic DNA; decoding your birth chart to reveal your inherent giftings and future potentialities.

There is no one else in the world who is just like you. An astrology consultation can connect you with deeper meaning and purpose in life by validating your experiences and supporting you with embracing, liberating, and expressing the many aspects of your beautiful, multi-faceted, authentic Self.

Why choose to work with me?

You can find out more about me on my About page, but briefly:

With three university degrees concentrated in the social sciences, my background as a researcher and healthcare professional, combined with my continuous study and training within the field of psychology and wellness, I bring a wealth of diverse, practical knowledge to bear on every astrology reading I do. Born with an 8th House Pisces Sun and Mercury cazimi in my birth chart, I am skilled at intuitively synthesizing the multiple puzzle pieces of astrological placements and patterns into a cohesive and meaningful whole that will make sense within the context of your life.

I would suggest reading some of my blog posts to get a sense of my approach and whether or not it resonates for you. Before booking a service, please review my Terms of Service for more information on my liability disclaimers, payment policies, confidentiality, ethical practices, guiding values, and my technical and philosophical approach to astrology.

About every 27 days the Moon returns the exact same location it was at when you were born. This is called your lunar return. Like every new beginning, each one of your Lunar Cycles has its own birth chart (basically a snapshot of the solar system at that moment), which symbolically reflects some of the central themes, opportunities and challenges that will emerge during the 27-day cycle.

Similar to a solar return chart (see below), a lunar return chart is a big picture lens that thematically flavours all the day-to-day transits occurring within a 27-day time span. I use my own lunar return chart each month as a grounding anchor and map to help me identify how I can best respond to life events and address my emotional needs.

When you order a Lunar Cycle consultation I first analyze your birth chart so I understand how you personally experience certain transits. I will then write up a personalized interpretation of your lunar return chart, and I will also highlight the most noteworthy global and individual transits occurring within that 27-day time frame, as tailored to your birth chart.

To request this service, please fill out and submit this form. The cost is $45 CAD for the interpretation and typed report (approximately 6 pages). I will respond to you with a Paypal invoice and an email to confirm the details you provided and to let you know when you can expect to receive the completed interpretation.

Everyone born with differing moon placements will have a unique 27-day Lunar Cycle. I will let you know when your next Lunar Cycle begins and, time permitting, this will be the focus of my interpretation unless otherwise requested. Because this is a time-sensitive interpretation, if there is a particular 27-day cycle or certain time frame you would like to focus on, it is best to ask me at least a week in advance so that I can complete the interpretation before the cycle begins. My wait list length varies, and thus sometimes I will be able to respond to a short-notice request, while other times I may not be able to.

Around the day of your birthday (give or take a day), the Sun returns to the exact degree point in the zodiac it was at, at the time of your birth. Whatever the sky is doing at this moment, its configurations are captured in your “solar return chart“. With this consultation, I interpret the symbolic meanings of your solar return chart to shed light on some of the major themes, opportunities and challenges you may encounter in the upcoming year.

A solar return chart provides an insightful overview of the year ahead and can give you a big-picture framework to support you throughout your next Solar Cycle. Please note that this consultation will not include a month-by-month forecast with your year’s timed transits. Solar return charts do not indicate “when“, they only indicate “what” – but in such a way that prioritizes the themes which are the most central to your year.

I will integrate a few of the most important transits and progressions into your solar return chart interpretation, but if you want a thorough forecast of the upcoming year with a month-by-month guide , I would recommend: Astronavigation for the Year Ahead (#5).

When you order a Solar Cycle consultation I first analyze your birth chart so I understand how you personally experience certain transits. I will then write up a personalized interpretation of your solar return chart. Although it is about the same length as a Lunar Cycle report, a deeper and more detailed analysis is involved and thus the price is slightly increased.

To request this service, please fill out and submit this form. The cost is $70 CAD for the interpretation and typed report (approximately 10 pages).

I will respond to you with a Paypal invoice, and an email to confirm the details you provided and to let you know when you can expect to receive the completed interpretation.

*Please read my Terms of Service before ordering.*

 

*Currently an abbreviated and focused reading is available for a time-limited price of $45. Check back soon if you are interested in a more thorough birth chart consultation, or indicate your interest here.*

Did you know that over 99% of the human DNA sequence is the same? Less than 1% of differences in our genetic make-up creates the vast amount of diversity we see. A human genome contains all of the genetic DNA material coded with the instructions for creating a human being, and in the last 20 years, the international Human Genome Project was launched to identify and map out the amazing mosaic of human genes.

What does this have to do with astrology? The human genome is a perfect analogy for the astrological birth chart.

Similarly, your birth chart (a snapshot of the solar system created at the moment of your birth) contains the same basic ingredients as everyone else living on Earth. Each one of us has all the planets, asteroids, zodiac signs, and houses in our birth chart. It is the particular arrangement of all of these components in a birth chart, which reflects the unique personality and potentials of an individual.

Instead of the 3 billion letter sequence of the human genome, the field of astrology has access to over 4,000 years of astrological knowledge and techniques that are used to map out and “read” the sky. While there can be similarities, each human birth chart expresses a different variation of features – just like your DNA.

While a biologist can read the language of your cellular DNA, an astrologer can read the language of your cosmic DNA.

Our genes contain biological certainties as well as potentialities. Scientists have discovered that as we respond to our environment, certain genes are activated, while others may be inhibited. Similarly, our cosmic DNA – our birth chart – responds in varying ways to our environment; at different times emphasizing certain archetypal patterns in our lives, while downplaying others.

Just like we can make lifestyle changes to avoid the particular outcomes our genetic material might predispose us to, we can use our free will (to the extent that we can within our current circumstances) to consciously manifest the highest expression of our birth chart. I believe your birth chart symbolizes a dynamic (rather than static) process of growth and development. Even the most challenging aspect can be transformed into something that gives you deep meaning and purpose!

In this consultation, I will Decode your Cosmic Genome to identify the most potentially fulfilling paths toward a life of meaning and purpose. Through an interpretation of the symbols, I will reflect back to you your greatest strengths and I’ll point you in the direction of strategies and tools you can use to overcome certain challenges and inherent tensions in your chart. As time permits and as desired, I can provide guidance related to your vocation, relationships, home and family life, learning and communication skills, and some suggestions as to how  you can develop a holistic sense of wellbeing for your temperament (physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually).

You are the final authority on your identity and life direction. A birth chart consultation provides some insightful food for thought that can contribute to your creative, self-directed process of being, becoming, and belonging. Particularly if you have temporarily lost the threads of your life’s narrative, this consultation can assist you with writing a new life story that resonates with your soul and is aligned with your inner truth.

“The deepest question is not ‘What ought I to do with my life?’ It is the more fundamental and demanding ‘Who am I? What is my nature?’”

~ Parker J. Palmer

Currently only the shorter, focused consultation is available as a written report for the time-limited price of $45. This ~6 page report zeros in on the most important defining themes and unfolding directions of your life. If you want to get direct clarity on your life’s work and purpose, this consultation may provide the insight you are looking for. To request this service, please fill out and submit this form.

If you are interested in a more thorough birth chart interpretation, you can indicate your interest here, and I will notify you when it is available. The cost is $150 CAD for the interpretation and typed report (approximately 20 pages), or for a 90 minute conversation or recording.

After you submit the initial form, I will respond to you with a Paypal invoice and an email to confirm the details you provided.

Astrology is a complex (and seemingly endless) field of knowledge. Learning astrology can be initially intimidating, especially when faced with the overwhelming amount of generic information now available online. And yet it is so worth it! It is incredibly empowering to be able to access and understand your own birth chart.

I’ve designed this offering for those who are new to astrology and want to obtain a solid understanding of the basics. This consultation combines an astro lesson with a brief chart reading. This is a one-on-one astrology lesson that is tailored to your individual birth chart.

This service is not yet available, but you can indicate your interest here, and I will notify you when it is available. The cost is $100 CAD for a live 1 hour recorded reading/lesson through Zoom.

I will have slides and content prepared, but let me know your questions ahead of time, and I’ll do my best to fill in your astro knowledge gaps and point in you the direction of appropriate resources! After you submit the initial form, I will respond to you with a Paypal invoice and an email to confirm the details you provided.

Astronavigation (also called celestial navigation) is how seafarers have successfully and safely steered their ships in both ancient and modern times. They looked up at the sky and measured the angular distance between visible celestial bodies and the horizon, in order to determine where they were, and where they were going.

These seafarers used tools such as the sextant or the octant, whereas an astrologer uses techniques such as transits and progressions. Seafarers use the sky to navigate stormy seas, while astrologers use the sky to navigate challenging “cosmic weather”, as symbolically reflected and expressed in human life. 

Using the astronavigation tools at my disposal (including returns, transits, progressions, solar arcs, lunations and eclipses), I will provide you with a symbolic month-by-month map of the life terrain for your upcoming year – with an eye to both the previous and following years, in order to contextualize its meaning for your life.

Victor E. Frankl writes: Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

Future-oriented astro forecasts can provide information that allows us to strategically navigate and prepare for plot twists in our life’s story. With this increased preparation we can create greater space between stimulus (i.e. life events)… and our response; thus maximizing our growth and our freedom.

Granted, there are many aspects of life that we have no control over. However, ideally this astronavigation consultation will empower you by increasing your sense of agency, while also supporting your ability to be fully present and grounded for all of your life’s twists and turns. Although we cannot always immediately change our situation, we can always shift our internal response to it. Just like planetary movement, our life stories are in constant motion – and this offers great hope!

This service is not yet available, but you can indicate your interest here, and I will notify you when it is available. The cost is $150 CAD for the interpretation and typed report (approximately 25 pages), or for a 90 minute conversation or recording.

After you submit the initial form, I will respond to you with a Paypal invoice and an email to confirm the details you provided.

Is life feeling out of control? Did your life’s story suddenly take a bizarre twist that is hard to make sense of? Are you feeling in limbo, confused or bewildered? Are you looking for the “You are Here” arrow in a seemingly incomprehensible maze of life events?

This is a consultation that is designed to respond directly to your current situation. Whereas the Astronavigation reading seeks to provide you with a map of the year’s terrain, this reading will point you in the direction of a lighthouse and offer you a grounding anchor to center yourself in the midst of a storm.

I will not directly answer “should I” questions (e.g. Should I break up with my boyfriend? Should I move across the country?), and nor will I respond to very specific yes/no questions in regards to whether some particular thing will or will not occur in the future. What I can do, is provide you with some dates as to how long this particular life chapter will last, when you’ll encounter the most important plot twists, how this chapter symbolically fits into the overall narrative of your life, and some words of advice on how to best navigate the cosmic weather you are facing.

Because this consultation is dependent on the contextual information you provide, I’ve designed this service as an email exchange. This medium allows me the space to analyze your transits as necessary in order to respond to your questions. Although I will conclude the conversation when I feel I have reached the capacity of the interpretive research and energy I can offer for this consultation, I’m open to an exchange where I can clarify and answer any follow-up questions you might have.

To request this service, please fill out and submit this form. The cost is $45 CAD for an email conversation focused on a specific time period.

After you submit the initial form, I will respond to you with a Paypal invoice and an email to confirm the details you provided, as well as to let you know when I will be available for this email exchange consultation.

One of the ways astrology has been most helpful for me in my own journey, is when I have used it to travel back in time to better understand previous life events by retracing my life’s history through the symbolic lens of astrological transits. When I conducted a survey of what types of consultations people would be most interested in, many of the respondents prioritized this type of reading as a way of making sense of the past.

Humans are story-telling creatures. We make meaning out of our life by weaving the culmination of our life experiences into an internal story about who we are, where we came from, and where we are going. Having a cohesive narrative identity has been identified as vital to our overall wellbeing and capacity to thrive.

But sometimes things happen in our life that are difficult to integrate into our life story. We may experience astrological transits as “story interrupters”. Story interrupters are those chaotic curveballs that come out of nowhere. The events that derail us. The circumstances that pull apart the threads of the story tapestry we are weaving.

When our life stories are unexpectedly interrupted, our sense of coherent meaning, purpose and identity can fly out the window. We may find ourselves flailing in chaos. As we grapple with broken, interrupted life stories that no longer make sense, depression and anxiety have been known to sneak in through the story’s cracks.

Astrology is laden with rich, evocative symbolism. Through accessing this symbolism, we can craft new stories in our lives and renew our sense of meaning, purpose and hope. Astrology is an amazing gift that can help us integrate story interrupters as new threads within the life tapestry we weave; as new characters and plot lines within the life stories we write.

While I don’t believe that “all bad things happen for a reason”, or that all events are fated with inherent and independent meaning, I do believe that when it is the right time and we are ready to, we can choose to actively create meaning from chaotic or confusing life periods by integrating them into our life’s narrative.

Einstein coined a beautiful Scorpionic quote: “Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another”. The energetic legacy of your old stories, can be transmuted and reborn as a new story to carry you forward.

It is a privilege to play the role of story midwife by using the tool of astrology to guide and support people with this act of reclamation and integration. I will use astrological techniques to access the latent symbolism associated with a time period of your choice. I then frame this time period within the larger story of your life’s journey with lots of prompts and resources to aid your reflective process and deepen your understanding. For more on my perspective and philosophy underlying this type of consultation, you can check out a blog post I wrote titled: “Weaving ‘Story Interrupters’ into Your Life’s Narrative using Astrology’s Symbolism”.

The Saturn Return is a major transit occurring about every 30 years. Along with Mercury Retrogrades, Saturn Returns are one of the few transits that have achieved mainstream popularity. It begins as soon as Saturn returns to the sign it was in at the time of your birth, thus launching a 2.5 year life chapter of self-discovery and redefining who you are and why you are here.

However, the infamous Saturn Return is not the only major Saturn transit we can experience. Saturn moves through the zodiac wheel, conjoining with all your natal planets and passing through all 12 of your houses, every 30 years. Wherever Saturn is traveling with respect to your birth chart, similar challenges and opportunities for personal growth will arise. Other Saturn transits that are often correlated with a difficult time period include Saturn transiting the Ascendant, the Moon, and the IC. Many people have found the events correlated with these transits to be even more taxing than those associated with their Saturn Return.

I’ve studied Saturn’s symbolism in great depth and believe that this often feared planet has a lot to offer. If you are aware that you are experiencing a major Saturn transit, or I’ve identified a major Saturn transit in a previous reading and you want to go deeper, this focused consultation exists to guide you through it.

After taking into account how you likely experience Saturn natally and how you may have experienced previous Saturn transits, I then offer insights, suggestions, and remedial tools that will help you navigate your Saturn transit feeling grounded, motivated, resilient and hopeful. I also provide a list of key dates for when your Saturn story may reach important turning points in its plot development.

This service is not yet available, but you can indicate your interest here, and I will notify you when it is available. The cost is $70 CAD for the interpretation and typed report (approximately 10 pages), or for a 90 minute conversation or recording.

After you submit the initial form, I will respond to you with a Paypal invoice and an email to confirm the details you provided.

This is a focused consultation that explores the various expressions of the Lilith story in your chart, and suggests ways that this power can be consciously unleashed in your life.

The placement of Black Moon Lilith shows us where we seek to throw off the chains of oppression, speak out against injustices, and release inhibitions.

This service is not yet available, but you can indicate your interest here, and I will notify you when it is available. The cost is $45 CAD for the interpretation and typed report (approximately 6 pages), or for a 30 minute conversation or recording.

This consultation is an honest, but sensitive and compassionate exploration of the various tensions and challenges within your birth chart. It is designed to prompt new insights and help you get “unstuck”, by applying principles of the Internal Family Systems Model (IFS) to your astrological birth chart:

“IFS sees consciousness as composed of various ‘parts’ or subpersonalities, each with its own perspective, interests, memories, and viewpoint.” (~Wikipedia)

We are multifaceted, multidimensional beings. We all have multiple subpersonalities and characteristics (e.g. an “internal family”), and this is clearly evident in our astrological birth charts.

By providing additional tools and language to facilitate internal integration, IFS has a lot to offer astrology. By externalizing and making our inner workings and the map of our psyche visible and tangible through the placements of planets in our natal charts, astrology arguably has a lot to offer IFS.

Although I am not formally trained in IFS and in this capacity I am not providing it as a therapeutic intervention, in this consultation I carefully apply some of the principles, concepts and language of the IFS Model to astrological symbolism in order to support a person with uncovering unconscious patterns and establishing greater internal integration within themselves.

All natal charts contain a certain amount of contradiction and tension, which reflects the interesting and diverse nature of our unique personality traits – as well as the reality that we often feel as though we are fighting internal wars with different parts of ourselves that value or want different things.

According to IFS, when parts of ourselves take on extreme roles (causing internal imbalance and tension) they are either vulnerable parts that we have exiled from ourselves because they hold too much pain, or they are parts that are controlling our behavior in order to protect us from the pain of the exiled part.

In addition to these parts, and yet in relationship with them, is what IFS calls the core Selfwhich other spiritual traditions refer to as the ground of being, the soul, the egoless no-self, or the seat of consciousness. In IFS, the core Self is not a passive witness as it is in other practices (such as meditation); rather it is capable of taking on an active role through which it can unburden and heal hurting parts of your being.

A principle of IFS is that your core Self  can never be damaged or broken. You know you are accessing core Self and expressing Self-leadership when you are not judging or reacting, but rather you are experiencing the following 8 characteristics: calmness, connectedness, confidence, creativity, courage, curiosity, compassion and clarity.

In a birth chart, I conceptualize the core Self not as the Sun (which represents our ego), but as the center point in the birth chart wheel; representing the Earth, around which all celestial bodies are organized in astrology. In this consultation I will provide guidance on how to access your core Self, which is an important first step when working with various parts of your psyche.

When we unburden our protecting and exiled parts, and integrate all “parts” into a healthy, harmonious whole, we are liberated to live more authentically as a Self-led person. Our astrological birth chart can indicate what parts of ourselves might be caught in patterns of avoidance or overcompensation, and those that may need more focused integration. In this consultation I focus primarily on the placements of Saturn, Pluto, Chiron, Lilith, Scorpio and the Nodal Axis, along with challenging aspects and an exploration of houses 4, 7, 8, and 12.

One of the most beautiful features of the IFS approach is that it is unconditionally accepting of all the parts of a person’s being because it recognizes that ultimately there is always some sort of understandable rationale and logic behind even the most detrimental of behaviours – despite how misguided or counterproductive these actions or internal responses and narratives may first appear in respect to the original aim. Similarly, in astro language we might say that Saturn and Pluto symbolize powerful potentials in the birth chart, but they can also be associated with challenging complexes and areas of fear, until we work through their expression in our lives.

Beneath all of these various parts is our core Self and spiritual center. When we are acting from Self, we are able to bring understanding, compassion and healing to different ego-parts of ourselves, without overly-identifying with them and becoming triggered and flooded by the memories they hold. It is the compassionate and non-judgemental attributes of the core Self, which encourages even our most unlikable and frustrating protector parts to loosen their control and transform (as opposed to when we treat them as emotional garbage and forcefully try to stop them or purge them from our psyche, which often causes them to re-emerge with a vengeance).

This consultation is more focused on tensions and challenges in the birth chart than my other offerings, and explores them in greater depth while also providing reflective prompts, helpful suggestions and resources to contribute to self-acceptance and healing. It is designed for those seeking increased clarity, self-awareness, and personal growth, but I recognize that this type of reading could potentially stir up strong emotions and thus approach this consultation with care. Typically IFS invites different parts to emerge spontaneously, whereas I am adapting the IFS approach to highlight (through dialogue) how your internal tension may be playing out as indicated by your astrological chart. You are welcome to take this work further on your own with IFS resources, or with a therapist, if you desire.

If you choose the report version of this reading, I will create an imaginary dialogue between the different planetary archetypes in your chart  – a type of written astrodrama. I did this briefly with my own natal chart, which you can read about here. I have found that writing out imaginary interactions between “planets”, is a really effective way to illuminate and demonstrate the inherent tension within a natal chart (i.e. a person’s psyche), as well as a way to facilitate the process of increasing self-awareness, achieving integration, and moving toward an expression of wholeness using the tool of astrology.

If you choose to have a live conversation instead, this will be a bit different than other readings in that I am more focused on holding space for you and facilitating your own process, rather than solely transmitting astrological interpretations. You can read more about IFS and astrology in this blog post I wrote, or check out this accessible 15-page guide to IFS here [PDF].

This service is not yet available, but you can indicate your interest here, and I will notify you when it is available. The cost is $150 CAD for the interpretation and typed report (approximately 20 pages), or for a 90 minute conversation.

After you submit the initial form, I will respond to you with a Paypal invoice and an email to confirm the details you provided.

NOTE: Eventually I hope to offer relationship readings, parenting consultations, medical and locational astrology. In the meantime, if you are interested in these types of readings or any other type of reading not listed here or currently available, I will do my best to refer you to another astrologer who specializes in these areas and may be better suited to meet your needs.
