Natal Chart Reading

This consultation consists in a 2-hour exploration of your natal chart with a brief look at current transits. It involves in-depth preparative analysis and is both informative and dialogue oriented.

A natal chart analysis offers comprehensive insights into one’s innate gifts and challenges, dispositions and life intentions, as well as the transformative intentions underlying difficult patterns of experience—internal or relational.

Clarifying and revelatory, it paves the way for a more “enlightened,” inclusive and creative relation with oneself and the various motivations at work in one’s psyche. While confirmation is liberating, so is clarity about tendencies and patterns, as recognition builds a ground for choice.

You leave with a new appreciation for the unique complexities of your life, integrative perspectives on issues, and inspiration to be more fully who you are.

The consultation is recorded with a digital recorder, and the recording emailed to you as an mp3 or wma file you can download and listen to on your computer.

      Fee : $ 250

The archetypal  backdrop of this analysis is the backdrop of existence:

The image speaks to the journey of human development—between subconscious instinctual nature (the dog) and soul presence (the winged angel ahead).

The angelic figure, a mediating one, as suggested by his/her downward-upward hand gesture, is at the level of the human heart and bids the soul-self heralded on the traveler’s shield (the “sun” between stars above and crescent moon below). The program of the soul’s journey is to engage spirit and matter (stars and moon), mindfulness and patterns, conscious and unconscious into a growing center of consciousness, the soul or Ego.

Behind the archetypal traveler are the trees and dog of un-self-aware life. Ahead, should he step forward into the waters of the unconscious, is the potential of human achievement.

If we imagine the human figure completing his next step, we see that his body will line up with the left side of the picture: head-hat with church cluster (crown of spirit), heart with angel (soul-self), legs rooted in both land and waters (of instinctual vitality), in an archetypal profile of accomplished individuality: vital mastery of nature (matter/moon/dog), radiant heart wisdom (sun/angel), grounded spirit power (star and steeple rod). The walking stick becomes the axis of a spiritual spine – between heaven and earth.

Astrologically, the Moon, symbolized by lunar crescent and dog, speaks to one’s subconscious, automatic response to life. It represents instinctual and emotional dispositions carried over from the past—a familiar line of least resistance which conditions the present consciousness.

The sign and aspects of the Moon in the natal chart suggest what this basic psychological ground of the personality feels like. They suggest emotional needs and habits associated with these “natural” lines of expression. They indicate the resourcefulness of a certain type of emotional disposition and the liability of a comfort zone. Awareness of the needs and attachments of the Moon is key to gaining freedom from its automatisms, and in that, key to conscious growth. The moon signals what must come under one’s feet (what esoteric astrology refers to as “the prison of the soul”): modes of being to draw from as capacities, not to identify with and be governed by. The alchemical work is said to be “contra naturam” (it goes “against nature”)—consciousness challenges nature and natural “tendencies”. The Moon is a major key to our psychological entropies.

The Sun speaks to one’s natural mode of self-expression. It is esoterically referred to as the “sun of probability” (A. Bailey).

The Ascendant points to a central line of soul purpose and self-development in this lifetime. Esoteric Astrology refers to the rising sign as “the sun of possibility”.
