Astrology can be approached in many ways. Some astrologers are truly rigorous intellectuals, while others are really using natural psychic gifts. I use the term Intuitive Astrology because I fall somewhere between the two. I've studied astrological techniques in great detail. But when it is time to do the reading, in the end I synthesize the information I've collected using my natural intuitive skills. I rely on these skills while I'm doing the reading to answer questions and trust that I am drawn in the best direction for you, based on many other successful readings. I rely on feedback from clients to determine the accuracy of my work, and thus far have a great track record.
Evolutionary Astrology works under the premise that we have all incarnated with a past, and that as we face the effects of actions we initiated before we were born, we can exercise free will to make changes, to grow, and to evolve. This is a welcome perspective. Because astrology's history is filled with deterministic astrologers whose predictions were delivered with a certainty that must have felt like a final verdict delivered by judge and jury. Thankfully we do have free will, and no astrologer can tell us what will definitely happen. We can always grow and change, and work with our "fate" to create new situations, new possibilities and new opportunities.

I specialize in Past Life or Karmic Astrology readings. Details here. You don't need to believe in past lives for a past life astrology reading to have a profound effect. Thinking about past lives as a metaphor is extremely powerful, as the information synthesized during the reading will speak to unconscious motivations and impulses within your psyche - the kinds of compulsive, repetitive feelings you might have that are hard to explain, or hard to find reasons for. Giving a framework and a story in order to bring this information into a tangible form in gives us a powerful tool that we can use to effect change in our lives. For some this can mean the difference between feeling "at the mercy of fate" and "in an participatory process of co-creation with all that is".
