Why astrology?

Astrology is so much more than the horoscopes you might read in a newspaper, and once you go beyond the surface of Sun sign astrology, it is such a profound and amazing tool for self-discovery and insight. Your birth chart is your road map to the most meaningful life you could live. It describes your strengths, important themes in your life, and also the things that stand in your way. Astrology has helped me understand myself and my relationship with others on a much deeper level, and I hope it does the same for you.

Offerings

Frequently asked questions

I want to start learning about astrology. Where do I start? Are there any books, podcasts or apps you recommend?

It’s easiest to start learning astrology by looking more deeply into your own birth chart. Start by learning the function of the planets, given that they bring all of the potential, power and energy to the chart. The astrological houses, signs and aspects exist to help understand the unique version of a particular planet that you may have in your chart. In terms of books and other resources, I highly recommend reading You Were Born For This by Chani Nicholas. Chani also has an app (called CHANI) which is fabulous. If you want to get a more intuitive sense of the signs and planets, I recommend The Inner Sky by Steven Forrest. Once you get a better sense of the terms and concepts used in astrology, check out some episodes by The Astrology Podcast, one of my all-time favourite podcasts.

How does a consultation work?

If you want to book a consultation, go to my Offerings section and choose what type of reading you want to have. When you have booked your birth chart consultation and payment has been processed, you will receive an e-mail from me within 48 hours to confirm your booking. You will then receive a link to the book system, where you can set a date and time that works for you. You’ll also be asked to submit the intake form with some questions, which helps me prepare for your consultation and ensures your expectations about our session are met. We meet at the time you selected to go over your chart and the interpretation. A consultation with me tends to be a conversation where you share what you’re currently going through, or areas of life you’re looking to clarify, and use your birth chart to guide you toward potential directions or answers. Your consultation takes 1 hour and will take place via Zoom. The session will be recorded and sent to you afterwards, so you can revisit the consultation anytime you want. You’ll also receive a digital copy of your birth chart.

What if I need to cancel?

 Cancellation of a session can only be done via email. Canceling via social media is not possible. Appointments can be rescheduled or canceled free of charge and with full refund up to 24 hours prior to the session. Cancellations or changes received after this deadline are not eligible for a refund. No-shows are not eligible for a refund unless there is a valid reason (force majeure / calamities). I reserve the right to refuse future services for repeated transfers and no-shows.

Why do you need my exact birth time?

Your birth time determines precisely where the horizon was at the time of your birth. This sign that was rising on the eastern horizon is your Ascendant, which is an essential part of your birth chart and lets you know what your direction in life is. Another important placement in your chart that is decided by your exact birth time is the Midheaven, which is the point that reflects your career or vocation. Lastly, given that the Moon moves approximately 12-14 degrees per day, knowing your exact birth time makes a huge difference for your chart and impacts how effective and precise a birth chart reading is.

Can you predict my future?

I am not a psychic and I don’t (currently) specialise in predictive astrology. However, I do use some timing techniques (transits and annual profections) that can help you get a sense of how the planets move through your natal chart and impact your life. Looking at transits can give you a sense of which planets have been making your life harder or easier, and can also give you an idea of what’s in store for you the next year. I use the technique of annual profections to organise and prioritise transits according to which house topics are most important to you and which planets in a natal chart are activated during a given time period. I’m currently only offering these timing techniques in combination with a birth chart consultation.

How long have you been studying astrology?

I’ve been familiar with my own chart since I was a child, but I seriously started studying astrology from 2017 onwards.

Who are your teachers?

My main teacher at this point is Kelly Surtees, but I’ve also learned from Chris Brennan, Austin Coppock, Judith Hill, Steven Forrest, and many other professional astrologers.

What house system and zodiac do you use?

I practice western, tropical astrology with a mix of traditional astrology and some elements of evolutionary & psychological astrology. Concretely, this means I read charts using whole sign house system and using traditional rulership, but in my interpretation I like to integrate some of the psychological insights from modern astrology.

Can you deliver written birth chart readings by a specific date?

For written birth chart readings I aim to finish and deliver the reading within 21 working days. However, if you have a specific date in mind (e.g. an upcoming birthday), do contact me about the possibility to finish the reading sooner than that.

What are your own placements?

I’m a Scorpio rising and Cancer Sun (in a day chart), with Mars & Venus conjunct in Virgo.
