The Birth Chart
The astrological birth chart, or horoscope, is a unique map of the positions of the stars and planets at the exact time and place of our birth.
For psychological astrologers, it is a ‘map of the psyche’, revealing the themes and stories which will emerge during our lives, like the unfolding plot of a play, whose characters have already been cast.
It is the astrologer’s task to identify and interpret these themes, to provide the insight and perspective to encourage their clients to develop the unique potential of their natal chart in its most creative and life enhancing expression.
Every chart contains specific and unique themes describing areas of dynamic tension, struggle, talent and potential. Analytical psychologist Carl Jung believed that the psyche is inherently motivated towards integration and wholeness. Astrology’s great gift is to give us the confidence to live more fully and with less fear. It reveals our inner patterns and helps us align with our true Self, transforming our lives through self acceptance and personal integration, and guiding us through life’s crossroads and rites of passage.
Before our consultation takes place I need just three pieces of information – your time, date and place of birth, and I will draw up and analyse your horoscope before we meet.
Skype consultations can be arranged if you are unable to travel to Dorset or live abroad.
An initial consultation lasts 90 minutes, during which time we will explore your horoscope, its inherent gifts and talents, any tensions and conflicts which need to be understood better and potentials yet to be realised.
We will start the session by exploring some of the major themes in the birth chart. For example, the astrological Sun describes the particular nature of our fundamental life force, our core identity and the centre of our being. Our solar task is the conscious realisation of our true personal authority and integrity. The nodal axis is the symbolic meeting place of spirit, soul and body around which questions of fate and destiny always hover. The astrological angles are fixed at the moment of birth, describing the challenges of our incarnation – our lifelong personal ‘cross of matter’ – our relationship patterns and our true vocation in the world.
We will explore how the themes have manifested in the past, where they are now and any immediate challenges and opportunities indicated by the current position of the planets.
The fee for an initial 90 minute astrological consultation is £150.00, with a recording of the session provided for you. The fee for updates and ongoing sessions is £75 per hour. Relationship sessions for couples can also be arranged.
In line with standard professional practice, everything discussed in a session is kept strictly confidential.
