Starting August 6, and the first Saturday of each month I will be offering an astrology workshop. We will use our birth charts to learn more about astrology and how to be our own best astrologers. We will look at transits (what is currently going on with the planets) and explore the impact on our birth charts so we can prepare to take advantage of working with the energies at hand. Space is limited, so please call to reserve a spot.
Look for Fredericksburg Astrology Group in Meetup.com!
If you are interested in personal development, I am able to offer astrological consultations. I combine my skills as a seasoned psychotherapist with an in-depth look at your birth chart, progressed charts, and planetary transits. Astrology is much more than the sun sign columns in the daily paper. The birth chart provides a map to help us find our way in this world. As Stephen Forest says, “It can tell you what’s wrong with yourself…and how to fix it”. We are not just a Capricorn or a Leo, we are all the signs, though some play a more prominent role in our lives. When we look at our birth charts, we look at the planets in the signs and houses. Put simply, the planets our the actors, the signs are the roles they play, and the houses provide a backdrop for the action.
“We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.” ~Carl Jung
“Astrology is a language. If you understand this language, the sky speaks to you.” ~Dane Rudhyar
So, you may be wondering why I choose to add Astrology to my practice……
As a therapist who follows the teaching of Carl Jung, I have found astrology to be a valuable source of wisdom when working with the BIG questions. Astrology can provide a deeper understanding of where the important learning may lie in the journey of our lives. Psychological Astrology, the type I study, is a style of astrology that utilizes each person’s birth chart as a map of the soul’s evolution, the journey we begin at birth. It looks at our personality, our potential, our strengths as well as our challenges. It is not meant to be predictive, though we can certainly take a look at transits and progressions that may impact your future. It is meant to offer a navigational guide to the psyche and how we grow and change in a changing world. Many of my clients have found that working with the birth chart is accurate and speaks a language that traditional psychotherapy can sometimes miss.
Consultations are a dialog between us. These can be done in person or over the phone or Zoom and are typically 90 minutes in length. During our time together we will review your natal chart. The natal chart is a map of the planets at the moment of your birth. We will also touch on your progressed chart (how your chart has evolved since birth), as well as major planetary transits impacting your present and future.
For the reading I will need:
Time of birth (not totally necessary but can provide greater accuracy)
Place of birth
If you are a parent, astrology readings can be helpful in gaining a deeper understanding of your child’s gifts, talents, temperament and challenges. It is the next best thing to an instruction manual, because as parents we all know that they do not come with one! A consultation can be enlightening when doing personal growth work as well as good guidance at times when we are making changes in our lives.
My fee is $80 per session.
I welcome questions if you are curious. I will try my best to clarify or explain topics related to Astrology and how it could be of assistance in your life.
