An astrological birth chart shows the celestial sky as it was the moment you were born. The planets and zodiac signs―and distances and geometric configurations between them―describe you, your life, the world you inhabit, the people you know. It also describes your nature and temperament, unique traits and tendencies, interests, aims, and potential.
Just as the sky changes each day and each night, so does your life as it unfolds through time.
Astrology is a language, but it is not a rigid one. It is mysterious and complex, rich in image. We do not know why or how it exists. As a symbolic language it is associative, it has linear and nonlinear qualities. It is also like a clock or time stamp―a way to measure and tell what time [in your life] it is. It offers us a lens and framework to see details about your life while glimpsing the whole picture (gestalt); and it compels us to ask interesting questions.
As it is with anything else: Context is Queen.
In my approach to reading a chart I refer to the knowledge of the ancients as a starting place via traditional techniques―and I meld and contemplate these in light of the current time and your current circumstances. I am an empathic listener and bring a compassionate, soulful, and nonjudgmental attitude to my practice. My intention is to provide clients with a warm, relaxed space to unpack the past, make sense of the present, and imagine future scenarios. Together we investigate cycles, trends, and themes in your life, your unique talents and obstacles. Through examining known strengths [and perceived limitations], it is my aim to assist you in moving toward greater well-being, purposefulness, understanding, and joy in your uniquely precious life.
All work together is confidential.

Testimonials... (more on request)
"I have had many readings with different astrologers, but Kate really brought something different to the understanding of my chart. Her vast knowledge of different techniques was very impressive. It definitely gave me another perspective and she's extremely detailed and professional. It's hard to find an astrologer this talented and dedicated to her clients. I really loved my reading and trust her professional analysis and advice. Oh the best part was that she has the best interest of her client at heart, and that's her priority. That made the world of differences." - Jess Z.
"I discovered Kate's website and found her charming. There was "change" in the air so I thought why not try someone new. And boy was she amazing! My reading was unusual in that I asked her to prepare an audio and email it to me WITHOUT ME PRESENT. I wanted to know what my CHART told her on its own. Although she had never done this before, she was ready, willing, and most able. Everything she said rang true and confirmed my own choices and life direction from the past to the present. Her astrology is thorough and well thought out. She sent all the necessary charts beforehand and carefully connected her reading references so I could follow along. It was so much fun working with her. Kate is warm and kind and intelligent, and was willing to engage in email conversation afterwards to bring me closure. I highly recommend her!" - C.B.
"Kate gave me some great insights into my chart and my life. She's studied with some heavy hitters in the astrology world. She's warm and wonderful and a lot of fun. I highly recommend her astrology readings." - Nancy C.
