“Your expansion is a given; the expansion of your time-space-reality is a given, and the expansion of this Universe is a given. It is just ever so much more satisfying for you to consciously and deliberately participate in your own expansion.” – Ask and It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks
The above quote was sent to me by my client Amy. I think it perfectly explains what astrology can do for all of us!

Your spirituality matters. In our modern age it is easy to lose connection with this important quality of human existence, that is, until we find ourselves in a spiritual crisis. Of course you do not have to be in crisis to seek out an Astrologer or Tarot Reader; and, in fact, it is much better if you can access them regularly as a way to keep centered while moving along through your life development. Astrology and Tarot are phenomenal tools that can help you wrestle with difficult situations, significant life changes, deeper inner self-knowledge, and your relationships with others and the world around you.
Astrologers and Tarot Readers all have unique styles even if they share common studies and philosophies about the two practices. To get the most from your experience with either of the two tools and the practitioner using them, it helps to know how practitioners approach and use each tool and what to expect from their style.
As an Astrologer I fall into the Evolutionary group. I see the birth chart as part of a long soul evolution in continual development. For this reason I often talk about past life development and current life goals. Your existence is part of an ongoing spiritually evolving process. With Tarot I am a narrative guide. The tarot cards, individually and in spreads (of two or more cards), provide a narrative that we hold up to the story of our life. By comparing the two, you can make critical judgments to help you make better, more effective decisions. Both tools are designed to help you make consciously good choices.
Stylistically, I am very direct, but careful of client feelings. I have an Aries Sun and Scorpio Rising, so I tend to dive right in (Aries) and go deep (Scorpio). My Libra Moon provides me with compassionate sensitivity and fairness. So even though I will not mince words, I always try to be kind and thoughtful.
Astrology has many different ways you can get information from your birth. The birth chart is the foundation of all readings, but beyond the birth chart you have progressed charts (soul evolution), transit charts (past, current, and future energy influences), astrocartography charts (location and relocation), synastry charts (relationships), mundane charts (events – wedding date, starting a new business and so on), and horary charts (a question of the moment). Therefore, charts can be cast for specific questions, situations, and relationships. Once we begin our journey together, I will be able to offer you alerts to significant transitions before they begin and tell you how they will apply to the energies of your chart. Since I want to establish an ongoing rapport, much of the maintenance and check up work can be done at a consultation rate (of $25 for every 30 minutes of follow up time). Your spiritual health, like your physical health, benefits from yearly check ups (a birthday chart each year) and awareness of major, cyclical spiritual hurdles (progressed Moon phase changes every 2 and 1/2 years, Jupiter returns – every 12 years, Saturn returns – every 29 and 1/2 years, the Pluto and Neptune squares at 36 to 42, the Uranus opposition at 40 to 44, and the Chiron return at 50).
Tarot Readings are very much “in the moment” experiences. If you have questions about the future, Astrology is the better choice since life patterns are cyclical and combinations of energy can be timed. Tarot cards and tarot readings will help you analyze your present situations and think about them in creative and critical ways. Tarot can best answer the following questions about love:
- am I ready for love?
- what kind of relationship is best for me?
- what do I need to know about love?
If you have questions about work, the best tarot questions would be:
- am I doing the right work?
- what work should I be doing?
- how do I feel about my job?
