WHY DO I USE ASTROLOGY?
When I was first exposed to astrology in the 1970’s, I was as skeptical as anyone with a typical, scientific-materialist education would be. After all, it was just the newspaper astrological columns to begin with. Since I am an obsessive learner about things I am interested in, that prompted me to explore not only my Sun sign (Sagittarius) in more in-depth sources, but also to look at my friends and family’s Sun signs too. It didn’t take long before many “spooky” correlations had emerged. Was it just wishful thinking and confirmation bias?
I continued my exploration for many years, trying to see clearly whether it was actually a useful tool or just a comforting delusion. Through that research I learned the archetypal meanings of Moon signs, Ascendants, Planets, Nodes, Aspects, Asteroids, etc. In addition I discovered the rich multicultural history of astrology and the remarkable reliability of the correlation of past transits with real events throughout written history.
With each investigation of personal planets and transits I studied, astrology continued to affirm that it extended far beyond mere coincidence, chance, or bias. I discovered many admirable individuals from the past and present used astrology to gain insights in their lives and work. Notably, Carl Jung, the famous psychologist, confirmed astrology’s essence as a pragmatic reflection of archetypal truths. He used it with many of his clients, while also having to conceal his use of it to the world at large during those more oppressive and judgmental times.
For the past 15 years, I have integrated astrology into my relationship coaching practice, using it to provide profound and fruitful insights to my clients. Astrology has allowed me to uncover their personal karmic patterns, identify tendencies in their current circumstances, and shed light on the unconscious dynamics underlying their intimate relationships. Now I am offering my astrology readings as a standalone service to anyone who is open-minded and seeking a new perspective on the trajectory of their lives.
