Psychological Astrology


Psychological Astrology brings together Humanistic & Depth Psychology with Modern Astrology and your own inner wisdom. It promotes healing and transformation by exploring your inner life through the map of your Astrological Chart. It is not about prediction or fate, but rather it is intended to help you understand yourself on a deeper level including your general tendencies, your goals and talents, and your underlying needs, desires, motives, wounds, and fears.

While old style Astrology has often been viewed as simply labeling people in concrete ways that implied a fated destiny, Psychological Astrology uses metaphor & archetypes to help you understand why certain issues recur in your life. It offers possibilities for developing your strengths more fully while embracing and integrating with your weaknesses.

Readings focus on your own personal dynamics as represented by the chart archetypes – universally repeating patterns. The individual’s birth chart is considered a symbolic representation of a person’s psyche and inner dynamics, as well as their potential for creating and manifesting. Through this lens, your chart is a useful tool that offers insight into your personality and your purpose and journey in life.

Belief in free will, choice, and deliberation is fundamental to a Psychological Astrology reading. Rather than labeling your individual character traits as good or bad, you view them on a continuum from a low evolution to a high evolution. You can see where you are at on the continuum, and understand more clearly how you can use your strengths to evolve into your highest potential.
Your chart, when viewed from a depth perspective, supports you in living your life more freely and fully and in feeling more authentically connected to yourself, your family, your community, and your world. It can provide healing and transformation as well as clarity, validation, and inspiration.
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.
