When we interpret an astrological chart, we call the process “reading.” That’s because astrology is a language built on archetypes, and every chart is a story. As I read a birth chart, I’m translating the core story that anchors it: the central themes and narratives that help divulge your unique needs, values, conflicts, and cravings.
There tends to be a gentle moral at the center — a lesson to learn, a challenge to meet, or a pattern to break. The chart can’t foretell exactly where you’re going or why, but it can show you how to be along the way.
Ultimately, astrology provides permission and freedom to embrace the gritty truth of who you are. It might reveal something new to you, but it’s more likely to clarify what you already know in your bones — what’s built into you, but perhaps buried, denied, or resisted for whatever ways it defies your presumed “shoulds.”
In our sessions together, we’ll explore the fundamental authenticities that are woven through your chart. Via birth chart readings and collaborative conversations, we’ll work to get you back in right relationship with your you-est self.
I’m not a whole-head-in-the-stars kind of human. I’m interested in astrology as a tool for earthly grounding — not the only tool, but one that pairs beautifully with other systems (like coaching, therapy, journaling, and even personality quizzes) to help unearth and examine important bits of personal truth, path, and purpose.
I’m not a psychic or fortune-teller, either, though I do use my intuition. I’m just your weird friend who spent way too many hours geeking out over this complex language, so I can understand and share the juicy stuff with you.
I avoid making predictions or implying causation in my readings. I don’t see astrological events as instigations (or explanations) of our lived experiences, but as moments of alignment. To explain: humans are products of nature, and nature functions as a complex system of interconnected species and biomes and repeated patterns. We knew this intimately in the early days of our evolution, when the sky was our primary technology for determining where we were and where we were headed. When we apply astrological wisdom today, we remember that we’re built for correlation with the natural shifts of the earth and universe; that the stars have always contained coded information to help us move forward or reflect back. In other words, Mercury Retrograde will never “make you” shatter your phone screen or miss an appointment, but to blunder during Mercury Retrograde is to remember that you’re tugged — and thus, sometimes in surprising ways, held — by life’s larger rhythms, which can offer more radical and expansive perspectives on your lived experiences.
