Astrology Consultations

Astrology is an ancient science, thousands of years old, and from it came astronomy, medicine and other sciences. Astrologers study and analyze the energy of the movement of the planets and the angles that planets make to each other. The signs of the zodiac and the houses are a method of dividing up the sky, so as the planets travel through these sections of sky, they are said to be in that sign and in that house.

The Natal Chart (your birth chart) is a picture of these planetary positions at the moment you were born. This reveals information to the Astrologer about your personality, talents and challenges. After you’re born the planets continue to orbit coming around again to touch the planets in your Natal Chart. When this occurs it’s call a Transit and this is a signal that something is going to happen you, something that could be positive or negative based on the planets involved and the angles made. And because planets move at a regular rate, it is possible to make projections about future possibilities for you.

We are still masters of our fate. The planets don’t tell us what to do any more than Winter demands that ducks fly south. The stars show us signs to help us on our journey and we can choose to follow these signs or not. And similar to the unseen pathways or signals ducks follow, we can choose to explore our personal pathways and signs in order to make our life much easier. 

We don’t know why Astrology works, we just know it does. Some may bothered by the idea that we don’t yet understand the mechanics of it. But the same could be said for gravity. We know it works but scientists are still undecided about why it works. Every day we learn more about the Universe we live in, yet there are still so many unanswered questions. But even though I don’t understand all that is behind electrons and protons in the theories of electricity I am still very willing reach out and turn on the lights when it gets dark. 

The Natal Chart is shown as a circle divided into 12 sections called Houses. Houses represent areas of life such the 6th house which represents things like work, daily routine, military service  and health but also very specific things such as any cats you may have, climatic conditions that affect your health, the profession of your grandchildren and so on. Lists of these have been created over thousands of years and even today they are updated and tested by Astrologers.

The lines dividing the houses like the spokes of a wheel, are called Cusps. The sign on the cusp is one of the 12 zodiac signs and directs the energy within the house. For instance you may have Libra on the 6th (the sign of Libra is on the 6th house cusp). Libra represents balance, airy, artistic, beautiful, cardinal, changeable, musical, nervous, obedient, communicative energy and so on. And the Astrologer would combine these two pieces of information, the 6th house and the Libra sign on the 6th house into specific information: we might say this could indicate a person who works as a teacher in the music department; a fair-minded and obedient soldier; a person who owns a particularly beautiful cat, and so on.

Any of the houses may contain planets; each planet represents an energy. For instance the Moon represents our inner most needs, what we may not have received from our mothers, our intuition, our connection to the women in our life. Each planet is in a sign so we would combine the energy of the planet and sign such as a Moon in Scorpio, the Scorpio quality bringing power, a desire for control, a love of secrets, ability with finances, etc. And if we place that Moon in Scorpio in the Libra 6th house we used in our example above we add a need for work, balanced with periods of lots of communication with others.

Each planet can be in aspect with other planets. This allows the planets to communicate with each other, sometimes to their benefit and sometimes to their detriment. So this Moon in Scorpio in the 6th could make aspects to the person’s Sun in Taurus in the 12th, their Mars in Capricorn in the 8th and so on. Because of this complexity a chart is very unique to a person. Even twins born 10 or 20 minutes apart can have different charts.

Altogether your chart gives a very detailed picture of your talents, your skills, your blocks and your fears.  And when we add in the Transits, the positions of planets in the sky today, we see your choices and opportunities.  Astrology can provide a very helpful map on your journey.

Timing and Transits

Your birth chart is a picture of the planets' positions as the time you were born and transits are where the planets are now.  Because the planets orbit the Sun and move at a regular rate when we compare your birth chart to the transits and future transits then we can predict events.

New Moon: Time to Plant Seeds

Every month there's a New Moon and the two week period of the waxing moon. This is followed by the Full Moon and the period of the waning moon. The New Moon is a good time to set your intentions for the month. Just like planting during the waxing moon will yield more crops, if you “plant” some intentions now for the next four weeks you can yield bigger and better results.

In times past during a waxing moon you would plant crops that yield above ground. (You can also transplant and repot houseplants during this time and they will do very well.) So during this time you want to set intentions and start projects that are out in the world such as marketing campaigns, contacting new customers, launching new websites and opening new locations. In your personal life it's a good time to reach out to friends, go on blind dates and list yourself on dating websites.

When the Full Moon comes, the waning moon will follow. Our ancestors would have planted root crops, pruned and mulched. This is a time to step back and assess what the last two weeks have brought. You can tweak the copy in online marketing campaigns, adjust how often you're mailing materials, or contact existing customers to bring them back. In your personal life consider seeing someone for a second or third date, find old high school and college friends online or take a step back from dating and just enjoy being single for a couple of weeks.

By following the rhythm of the moon you can yield better results.
