How can I help you?
Astrologer Mark Jones talks about beginning a reading by asking the question, “How can I help you?” as an important part of setting the stage for a reading to have therapeutic potential. Astrology offers much in the way of understanding the Self and one’s personality, but there is a transpersonal and soul dimension to explore in the chart that ties into the multifaceted layers of the human experience in all of its joys and all of its pain. This is why my readings tend to focus on Pluto and the North and South Nodes of the Moon for the purpose of illuminating the life path of our embodied soul. A reading can go into many different areas of life: love, relationships, family, spirituality, and career in order to understand the interwoven patterns and stories playing out at the heart of our being.
My Astrology Journey and what I am currently working on:
I discovered my love for astrology as a teenager, enchanted by the magic of the zodiac. I absorbed any and all astrology information I could get my hands on–and secretly as it wasn’t allowed in my upbringing. In 2014 I went to astrology school for two years while living in Portland, OR. This program and ongoing training provided me with the tools I needed to start my own practice. From there I started to give readings professionally and eventually moved into writing astrology content. Head over to the Writing Services page to see some of the projects I work on. Currently I am focusing on the Asteroids and Earth Signs in the hopes of carving out space for more nuanced interpretation of our natal charts and our experiences within society, the collective psyche, and resistance in the face of oppression systems. Asteroids can provide stories that go beyond the over-culture’s narrative, the gender binary, and the patriarchy, helping me as an astrologer make space for archetypal stories told through a queer and feminist lens.
