Astrology is the study of how the planets and their positions relative
to each other have an effect on us. Most people know about their Sun sign,
if you are born August 29th you are a Virgo, but there is so much more
to this art and science than that. We all have what is called a Natal Chart,
or Birth Chart, a kind of energy imprint of where the planets were in relation
to us at the time we took our first breath. This planetary fingerprint
is unique for each of us and sets the tone for our lives.
The Sun is joined by the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn,
Neptune, Uranus, Pluto and more to make up who you are. The Moon shows
our emotional state for example, how we handle crisis situations, and what
we take comfort in. Through understanding the placements of the planets
we can get to know and accept ourselves in an authentic way. Problem areas
in our lives can be pinpointed, understood, and ways to work with them
Your Natal Chart offers an objective, birdseye view of you, allowing you
to augment the positive and work through the negative. It is a powerful
transformative tool for your growth.
Using it as a base we can also look at where the planets are now and how
these energies are affecting you and how to work with them for your benefit.
Sometimes it can be helpful just to understand that “This too shall pass”
and that a particularly hard aspect won’t be around forever. Taking a look
at the current Transits, as they are called, can give us an idea of where
it would be best to put our focus at this time.
Astrology can help you better understand and communicate with your loved
ones as well as understand how you love and what you look for in a partner.
By studying both of your charts we can pinpoint areas of contention and
differences in viewpoint or communication style. It is a powerful first
step in having empathy for the other person that can then be built upon
in subsequent sessions.
I have yet to meet the person who can not benefit from knowing themselves
better. Once the knowledge is there acceptance and self love can follow.

your Natal Chart is.
What is a Transformational Astrologer?
Someone who uses Astrology as a tool to facilitate greater self understanding
and help build a solid foundational structure for self-empowerment. Someone
who helps you go deep into a particular Astrological energy within yourself,
understand its roots, and shows you that it can be turned into a positive
and powerful force in your life.
The Science of Astrology
There is a science to Astrology. We may not be able to understand all
the variables at play yet but that doesn’t mean we can’t use what we do
know in the meantime. According to Astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson,
we think we know maybe 4% of what there is to know about the Universe and
how it works. So it is very likely that the phenomenon of how the planets
are able to affect us in such in depth, fascinating ways dwells within
the other 96%.
For over 5,000 years humans have looked to the stars and the planets and
noted, over time, a link between their movements and our behavior. Astrology
is the ongoing study of that link. We don’t have all the answers but collectively
we have come a long way and have figured out some pretty cool stuff. Ironically,
to dismiss Astrology outright is incredibly Unscientific.
Trying to grasp the “how” of Astrology is a topic nearly every Astrologer
engages in on a regular basis. How can the planets have any effect on our
lives? You only have to take a look at the word Lunacy to see that the
phases of the moon have an observable influence on our behavior. Guards
in prisons are put on high alert around the full moon and teachers see
a noticeable difference in their students during this time as well. And
traffic accidents have been noted to quadruple during periods of high sun
So science has already shown that large planetary objects do indeed have
an effect on us. It is not a stretch then to see that the frequencies,
radiation, and gravitational pull of these truly massive bodies that share
our cosmic neighborhood might have an influence on us. We know that sound
waves, whether detectable consciously or not,
have an effect on our brains.We also know that each planet is emitting a different frequency.
You can listen to snippets of them here.It is rather neat.
I bring this up because it offers one small glimpse into how the planets
could be having an effect on our behavior. And this is only extracted from
the maybe 4% that we think we might know about how the Universe works.
There is likely a whole different angle out there that we don’t even have
an inkling of the tools needed to measure it yet.
Luckily we don’t need to fully understandhow it works to be able to observe
its effects and use what we know and can see to our benefit.
Cave men may not have understood the law of thermodynamics but that didn’t
stop them from utilizing fire. Astrology is not perfect, but no science
is. I practice Astrology and not one consultation has gone by where I wasn’t
taught something new about how an aspect or set of aspects was manifesting
in someone’s life. It is an honor and a privilege to be an Astrologer,
no matter how it works, the outcomes are what I am interested in.
I have empirically and systematically studied hundreds of charts and the
piece of mind, sense of strength, empowerment, healing, and self acceptance
that a session gives to people is nothing short of amazing. I encourage
you to be skeptical, but also to not dismiss what you have not yet studied.
I offer a money back guarantee on my consultations so you have nothing
to lose and everything to gain by trying it yourself.
A big part of why I decided to join Cardinal Point was to be able to bring
Astrology out of the shadows and Sun Sign columns and into practical application
in our daily lives. Whatever the mechanism behind Astrology it offers a
powerful and unique tool for better understanding ourselves and each other.
In the end that is all that matters…though it won’t stop me from continuing
the search for answers…it just isn’t in my Chart. ;)
The current placement of the planets has a direct and personal impact
on each of us depending on our natal charts.
There are 14 Planets that I regularly look at in a chart and in transit.
Planets in Astrology are not limited to the 8 that we know of as planets
today but include any Astrological Body that holds significant sway over
