What is Natal Astrology?
An astrological consultation is a way of gaining greater perspective on your life. It validates the individuality of who you are and the circumstances of your life, as well as gives you insights into the gifts and challenges you encounter. It also operates as a kind of ‘you are here’ on a map, showing you where you’ve come from and where you’re going.
Your birth chart is something that stays with you throughout your whole life, while there are other pieces that change over time that can show you what is happening now or will be happening in the near future. Most consultations will include some discussion of both of these, but feel free to say if you’d like to focus more on either your birth chart itself or what’s coming up.
Please have your exact birth data available, which includes your birth date, city of birth, and exact time of birth. The exact time is necessary for an accurate birth chart, so please get the time from your full, original birth certificate if it was recorded there. If it was not on your full birth certificate for some reason, try looking in other places it might have been recorded in writing, such as a baby book.
My current approach to interpreting charts uses a combination of modern Western and Hellenistic techniques and perspectives. This allows a look at the more concrete circumstances of different areas of your life as well as a psychological understanding of who you are through your chart. I do focus a bit more on trends and timing and less on personality unless you request otherwise; I find that the timing techniques available add so much context to understanding where one is in life that I spend most of the time on that focus.
You will get the most out of your consultation if you approach it as a conversation. You recount a bit about your circumstances, I explain the astrology behind it, and we put the two together for greater perspective.
I conduct consultations using a Zoom audio link, which you can connect to either via internet or phone. It will last approximately 75 minutes, and I will send you a recording of the session afterwards.
Scheduling and Cost
The cost of an astrological consultation is $175, and that includes our session as well as work I will do in preparing your chart ahead of time. Please send me an email at email@example.com if you have any questions.
If you should need to change your appointment, please let me know no later than 48 hours before your scheduled time, and as soon as possible before that. Since this time is held just for you and I dedicate 1-2 hours additional preparation time beforehand, a refund or rescheduling using the existing payment is unfortunately only possible with 48 hours or more prior notice.
I look forward to working with you!
