The Changing Landscape Of Astrological Counseling.
 by Jon Stevens

"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."

—Carl Gustav Jung

An experienced, 
insightful and individualized chart reading

Call me old-fashioned, but I remember a time when an astrologer took the time to draw up the complete chart for his client, studied it in advance to see what might be coming up for the individual, and then gave the reading within the context of karma, spirituality, and life purpose. Nowadays, with so many Internet sites devoted to astrology—and paranormal TV programs which stress entertainment over authenticity—the landscape of intuitive personal consultation has changed. A person genuinely seeking help may have a difficult time telling the difference between really good readers and those with good marketing ploys. I suspect that many seekers become so distraught over the matter as to do nothing at all.

A clear benefit for any astrologer is alignment with an established tradition of quality chart readers. Astrologers Carroll Righter and Sydney Omarr have been among my mentors. I learned from these and other great intuitive readers many secrets of chart interpretation. These, combined with my own experience of over thirty years as a counselor, have given me the confidence to know I can help clients with what is going on in their lives, not in a judgemental way, but in a way that is appropriate to their circumstances.

April 18th, 2014

The Stable Spirit of Spring! The first fixed sign, Taurus The Bull, asks us to organize and accept a placid energy in our Zodiac Month ahead. Its' earthen presence promises that with proper intentions, what we plant now will reap a dependable harvest when the time is right to receive it. However, without any spiritual means from the heart to nurture it along, what we set into place upon the earth, may only grow into worthless possessions unless they are backed by sustainable vision.
