How Does Your Work Enable You to Connect to and Fulfill Your Life Purpose/Passion?

One look at my bookshelves reveals that I have been a lifelong student of spirituality, world religions, mysticism, philosophy, psychology, mythology, and folklore. The challenge for me was how to pull these interests together into a meaningful role. Then I found astrology. Astrology is a practice that draws on much of what I learned through my years of seeking and became the vehicle for me to serve others. Once I began my astrology practice, I experienced the comfort of putting on my own “skin.” It put me on the path to living my calling and a more joyful and authentic life.

Who Is Your Ideal Client and Why?

My ideal clients have a sincere interest in exploring the qualities that make them who they are and the possibilities for growth that their lives offer.

What Unique Offerings Do You Provide?

Through the interpretation of the Birth, Transit, and Solar Return Charts, I help clients to meet their authentic selves, clarify their values, identify areas of growth, recognize gifts, open to new possibilities, and direct their attention to themes that may be at work in their lives. I do this by using the charts to prompt an on-going guided dialog about the meanings in the charts and their application to the clients’ lives. In addition to single session chart readings, I offer the Birth Chart Immersion Program which offers clients the opportunity for a deep dive into their Birth Chart and the way astrological energies play out in their lives. It also is an introduction to how astrology works. The Birth Chart Immersion Program takes ten to twelve weeks to complete.

Who Was Your Role Model Growing Up? How Did That Person’s Actions Impact You?

My role model growing up was my mother’s good friend. When I was a child, and well into adulthood, when I spoke she focused all of her attention on me, as if I was the only person in the room. She made me feel as if what I had to say was important and valuable and that I mattered. I hope that I can bring that kind of presence to my clients.

Favorite Place to Escape and Refuel?

My favorite place is the beach. Watching the ocean, feeling the salt on my skin, and deeply breathing in the ocean air gives me a fresh perspective on life.

Last Memorable Book You Read and Why?

The last memorable book I read was Atlas of the Heart by Brene Brown. She provides a clarified and extensive emotional common vocabulary that is key to understanding our feelings, communicating them to others, and being better understood by our listeners.

Favorite Movie and Why?

My favorite movie is The Secret of Roan Inish, based of the folktale of the Selkie.

“Go to” Quote or Mantra that Grounds You?

I am most proud of being a mother of my three adult children and a good life partner to my husband of 35 years.

Best Lesson Learned in Life So Far?

It took me time to learn not to worry about what others think or what expectations they may have of who I am supposed to be. Leaving that concern behind lead me to a far more fulfilling life filled with possibilities.

Advice to Younger Self?

I would tell myself to pursue my dreams regardless of self-doubt, perceived disapproval, and concerns about the practicality of what called to me.
