Birth Chart Readings

So much more than the Sun Sign horoscope seen in the daily paper, an individual's birth chart, or natal chart, displays the position of all the heavenly bodies, zodiac signs, and other important points at the moment of one's first breath. These are Astronomical observations that are calculated with exact precision, and can be verified with one's own eyes.

The art of astrology lies in how we interpret the astronomical data provided by the birth chart. The Shamanic Astrology approach is to do this in the same way our ancient ancestors did - through direct experience with the night sky. Particular emphasis is placed on the mythic archetypes of the twelve zodiac signs, and the seven visible heavenly bodies - Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. The birth chart is then seen as a set of instructions that outline the soul's lineage and intent for the current life. Clients are encouraged to develop their own understanding of the natural cycles through personal observation and ritual interaction.

Having a reading can be useful in the following ways:

  • Understanding how to uncover and engage your most authentic expression of self

  • Gaining insights into the overall meaning and purpose of your life in order to realize your fullest potential

  • Developing understanding and empathy for the unique expression of others (useful for all types of relationships)

  • Becoming aware of the timing of cycles in the heavens that mark important and life changing cycles of initiation in your own life

  • Receive guidance and techniques to tap into your unique strengths to help navigate life's difficulties 

"We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more."

- Carl Gustav Jung
