I am now offering Recorded Readings as an alternative to meeting ‘in-person’ on Zoom.

It seems that many folks prefer listening to the information at their leisure and without the back and forth conversation.

If you choose a Recorded Reading rather than a Consultation you will have the option of scheduling a half-hour ‘in-person’ follow-up on Zoom for a nominal fee. This allows time to address questions or concerns that come up as you listen to your Personal Recording.

Folks who have used this option have consistently told me that they get more out of it! When I sit alone with your chart I can fully tap into FLOW* as I record the Reading. * Flow is a state of complete immersion as time and ego fall away

In your Personal Recorded Reading, I will dive deeply into your natal chart** along with your current transits and progressions.

This is a video recording so you will see me and the charts that I am working with. Please read the FAQ page before scheduling.

After receiving her recording a client wrote: “Many many thanks for an extraordinary reading, I’m still processing it, & will watch it again. I feel like I started a diary from the day I was born until now & you went & read it!”

Please keep in mind that transits to your natal planets can override these universal ones. 

A WILD DAY IN WILD TIMES – Monday, October 19, 2020

This week starts with a lot of activity. The Sagittarius Moon encourages you to expand your understanding and awareness of the greater world.

The day begins with Mars (retrograde) square Jupiter suggesting overwhelming aggravation or excitement due to the opinions shouting for attention from every direction. Sounds like just another election season.

Venus trines Jupiter in the early hours as well offering hopeful agreement and enthusiasm. Don’t allow that to translate into complacency. Consider the consequences of any actions you take today.

As the day comes to an end Mercury retrograde moves to oppose Uranus. This is a 3 part story as Mercury opposed Uranus on October 7, again today, and once more on November 17th. Expect information coming at a hectic pace that may leave you scrambling to keep up. You may hear stories or ideas that are shocking or exciting. As best you can, keep steady. We are indeed living in wild times. Let’s work to make America humane again.

***The Scorpio Moon is void-of-course until 12:43 AM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact. By the time you start your day the Moon will be in Sagittarius.


The Moon in Sagittarius brings with it a lighter emotional state unless your opinions or beliefs are questioned.

In normal times this would be a great day to go dancing or on a road trip. However, given that our mobility is somewhat restricted bring your mind on a trip to see new things. Open yourself to new ideas and ways of viewing the world.

Don’t get stuck in believing that your opinions and ideas are the only truth there is. Remember that everyone has opinions and that everyone’s opinions are just that – opinions! No matter how we may feel, it is important to understand and accept that no one has a direct line to the truth. Cultivate understanding, humor, and wisdom. Allow yourself to interact with folks outside of your normal circles.

Yesterday’s Mercury opposite Uranus lingers today. Did you wake up to surprising or unexpected information or news this morning? The full cycle of this story began with Mercury conjunct Uranus on April 30, 2020. The results gain clarity now with a 3 part revelation at the opposition on October 7, October 19, and November 17. Watch and pay attention.

***The Sagittarius Moon is void-of-course from 11:39 PM EDT until she enters Capricorn in the wee hours of Wednesday morning (2:44 AM EDT). This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.

THE POWER OF LOVE AND MONEY – Wednesday, October 21, 2020

The Moon entered Capricorn while we slept and we wake to a very different emotional atmosphere from the past few days. It may feel as though a wet blanket was thrown over yesterday’s optimism.

When the Moon is in Capricorn we tend to see the world around us from a more restrictive position feeling less free and easy. Capricorn is the sign of reality and hard work. Perhaps you have avoided some responsibilities over the past few days that you need to focus on now. You may realize that there is a price to pay as the piper comes to call.

At 5:41 PM EDT Venus trines Pluto. You may be tempted to buy some big-ticket items. With Mercury retrograde, it would be ill-advised to buy anything with electronic or computer components. Put that money aside for use after the election and Mercury has turned direct. Better yet, offer financial support to a cause that is important to you.

This evening is a good time to engage in issues of powerful love. Say I Love You. Show the power and depth of love in practical ways that leave no doubt to your authenticity.

Your money and your love have great power over the next 24 hours. Use each with abundant thought, consideration, and understanding.

***The Sagittarius Moon is void-of-course until 2:44 AM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact. By the time you start your day the Moon will be in Capricorn.


As the Moon trudges through hard-working restrictive Capricorn she squares Mars and makes contact with Jupiter and Pluto. This is a day when you may feel discouraged, gloomy, and pessimistic. You may feel brought low by the cultural challenges we find ourselves enveloped in. Spend time alone and honor your feelings. Don’t wallow in negativity but don’t deny the struggle either. Keep self care and self kindness top of mind.

At 6:59 PM EDT the Sun leaves diplomatic Libra and enters the powerful sign of Scorpio. As the Sun transits each zodiacal sign the qualities associated with that sign become more important to all of us. Scorpio is associated with passion, emotional intensity, resourcefulness, jealousy, and secrecy.

While the Sun is in Scorpio life itself becomes more intense and each action you take becomes more significant. It is important that you focus your energies and put your attention on what is the most important for your developing life.

Prepare yourself to face up to issues that you thought were well hidden and to discover things you may rather not know. In order for a healing to occur what is hidden below the surface must be revealed and scrubbed clean.

Over the coming weeks, the Scorpio Sun insists that we dig deep to root out any decay that is disturbing us or our systems. Prepare for the spooks and goblins of Hallows’ Eve.

A LIGHTER EMOTIONAL LOAD – Friday, October 23, 2020

At 8:16 AM EDT the Moon enters Aquarius bringing a good dose of objectivity to the table and lightening our emotional load. The heaviness of yesterday eases as we come to the First Quarter Moon at 9:23 AM EDT.

Dane Rudhyar called the First Quarter Moon a time of crisis implying difficulties and opportunities. This is a time to take the future into your own hands and make choices that matter. Pay attention to challenges that arise and find the opportunity within that challenge. Take the high road as you make choices and decisions that will move your life forward.

With the Moon in innovative, unconventional Aquarius, learn to understand different realities. Break out of your most habitual molds and patterns. To develop compassion for others reach out to people of different races, sexualities, gender identifications, age groups, nationalities, and political affiliations. Listen. Learn to love those who do not live like you. We must learn to share this small planet with those who are unlike ourselves. We must develop respect and understanding.

Aquarius suggests the need to march to the beat of a different drummer. Allow yourself to express the parts of yourself that are most unique. Today others will have more understanding of your quirks, and yet it will matter less to you if they do not. This is a day suited for wild, innovative thinking.

***The Capricorn Moon is void-of-course from 12:34 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 8:16 AM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.

COMMIT TO LONG TERM STABILITY – Saturday, October 24, 2020

The Moon remains in dispassionate impersonal Aquarius throughout the day. This shows up as a blessed relief in these highly emotional times. Your mind is more engaged than your heart as you maintain a cool outlook on situations and circumstances you find yourself in.

At 11:40 AM EDT Venus (in Virgo) forms a lovely trine aspect to Saturn. This is a good weekend to solidify your romantic or love connections. Build solid foundations in friendships and love relationships. If you have been having difficult issues with a partner today is a good time to work on building deeper more stable bonds.

This is a great time to secure business and/or money issues and to make commitments for long term stability.

***The Aquarius Moon is void-of-course from 5:54 PM EDT until she enters Pisces tomorrow afternoon at 5:19 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.

DOUBLE CHECK EVERYTHING – Sunday, October 25, 2020

In the early hours of the morning, Mercury joins the Sun at 2 degrees Scorpio. Usually, we think of the conjunction of Mercury and the Sun as a time of mental alertness, quick conversations, and many interactions.

However, with Mercury retrograde in the sign of hidden secrets, this may tell a different story altogether. Make sure that the communications you are engaged with are clear and that no misunderstandings occur. Double-check everything.

At 5:19 PM EDT, the Moon enters Pisces bringing out the dreamer in all of us. Have an early light supper and climb in bed with a book of poetry or a long slow foreign film.

***The Aquarius Moon is void-of-course until she enters Pisces at 5:19 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.

* In these weekly reports, I explore the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and give rise to fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.

The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

For all its complexity, however, astrology remains fundamentally simple. It offers a time-honored system of symbols that sum up key aspects of human life while providing profound insights and practical guidance.
