Astrology from Me
I had been doing Pagan magic for nine years, when I decided that I should study the Western Hermetic tradition. For that, a knowledge of electional astrology is essential, so I started studying traditional astrology. I got into Christopher Warnock's astrological magic course. My interest in natal astrology developed rapidly when I examined my own chart: the revelations were stunning. "That's why I don't always think and act like a stereotypical Aries," and "No wonder I have never been single, even when I wanted to be," to name two.
I developed two specialties: healing and astrology. By 2015, I felt ready to take either one professional, but the guidance I received at the time was to focus on healing first.
Covid crashed my in-person healing business, so I started preparing to offer astrology services. I was well on the way by late Spring of 2021, when I had a vision at the peak of the Solar eclipse in June. In brief, it woke me up at 4:50am. I was shown a detailed movie of how I fit into the Cosmos, then was Told very certainly that it was time for me to specialize in astrology.
I have been studying astrology seriously since 2009. My work is grounded in ancient (pre-1700) astrology, but includes the modern planets in natal work. I have studied with Christopher Warnock of Renaissance Astrology, and am a member of the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR) and The Organization for Professional Astrology (OPA). My professional ethics follow the OPA Guidelines, as a minimum.
Why Astrology at All?
I see astrology as a vital part of the healing journey. My services are aimed at attuning the client to the cycles of the Cosmos, and offering specific assistance that promotes preparation for challenges, psychological integration, and spiritual healing and growth.
Humanity grew up under the stars, experiencing the cycles of day and night, the tidal pull of the Moon, and the goings and coming of the planets directly. We are a part of the dynamic Cosmos, not its head or its center. In the Renaissance, Marsilio Ficino summed it up thus: "... the Cosmos is itself an animal more unified than any other animal, the most perfect animal..." What does "animal" mean? An ensouled, self-moving being. Your soul is not separate from the World Soul, the Anima Mundi. Starting in the late 18th Century, though, people adopted a more mechanistic view of the world as the Enlightenment grew into the Industrial Revolution. This was another Fall, in a way more grievous than the last one. We are beginning to yearn for what we lost in that process. That yearning is eased by viewing one's life against the majestic backdrop of the sky, and so we follow astrology.
Casting your personal horoscope requires your date, place, and time of birth. The more accurate the time, the better, as it is your rising degree that makes your chart unique. Many people do not know their exact time of birth; we can work with that in a number of useful ways.

I bought my first "wicked pack of cards" in 1985. More recently, I have taken courses with Camelia Elias, one of the best professional teachers and readers. I have adapted her incisive style of reading. I read for specific questions and get precise answers. My readings are priced low, because once I understand the question, I deal the tableau—BAM!—and read the cards—BOOM! You'll get your reading, with a picture of all the cards drawn, and my incisive comments. Usually next-day delivery on these.
(I almost always use one of my Marseille decks. If you ask a really hifalutin' question, I might get out one of my more esoteric decks, like the SevenFold Mystery by Place, or the Rose Tarot by Nigel Jackson.)
