My Approach

“The stars are like letters which inscribe themselves at every moment in the sky . . . . Everything in the world is full of signs. . . . All events are coordinated. . . . All things depend on each other; as has been said, ‘Everything breathes together.’”– Plotinus

Your psyche is mirrored in the movements of the cosmos. This insight can provide a deep sense of meaning that many are longing for in our era of disenchanted materialism. The art of astrology—can be a profound tool for exploring the dynamic unfolding of one’s psyche and life path.

What's my Astro-Speak?

I offer astrological consultations where I blend Western (modern) and Traditional (ancient) Astrological traditions and techniques that explore the natal/birth chart—the position of the planets at the moment of one’s birth—as well as personal transits—the relationships formed between the continuous movements of the planets and the natal chart to begin. Moving deeper into the Planetary conditions—the Planet's health, position, and ability to be who they are and then conclude with ancient timing techniques, that open us to a world of understanding the most profound and intimate details of you and your world.

My approach is to be in engaged dialogue with the client, learning your story and perspective while also tuning into the vast and multivalent symbols and archetypes wanting to be seen, witnessed and acknowledged within the chart. I welcome questions and conversation and create a therapeutic learning environment for the client. I am particularly drawn to work with individuals who are integrating major transformative experiences or are at a new threshold in their lives. I often work with individuals who are integrating therapeutic work, plant medicine ceremonies, breathwork, dreamwork, and other such holistic healing modalities,  business and career-oriented folks looking for that new edge, as well as those wanting to understand more about their relationships and potential love stories.

I also offer synastry and composite readings of the relationship between the charts of two people, with the policy that each of the clients has had an individual astrology reading previously and is currently in a relationship with each other. A relationship readings can provide insight into the dynamics of a relationship, whether between a couple, a parent and child, two friends, or work colleagues.

For those living in Northern New Mexico, I offer readings in person and am also happy to give readings by phone or via Zoom video conferencing for those living in the wider world. You will receive an audio recording of the session for your later reference.




Natal Astrology


Natal astrology is the practice of determining information about the nature and course of a person’s life based on the study of the positions of the planets at the moment that they were born. This involves the analysis of the client’s “birth chart” or “natal chart”, which is a diagram that depicts where the planets were at the exact moment of their birth. Consultations involving a client’s birth chart are useful for determining wide-ranging information about different areas of their life.
