A birth chart shows the celestial sky as it was on the day you were born. The planets and signs―and distances and geometric configurations between them―describe your life and the world you inhabit. It's symbolism speaks to your nature and temperament, your unique traits and tendencies, interests and aims. The chart also describes important people and events in your life.
Just as the sky changes each day and each night, so does your life as it unfolds through time.
Astrology is a language, but not a rigid one. It is mysterious and complex. It is associative, and has linear and nonlinear qualities. It shows potential. It offers an extraordinary lens and framework to see details about your life while glimpsing the whole picture (gestalt), and it compels us to ask interesting questions.
In a way, astrology is also like a clock―a way to measure and tell what time [in your life] it is.
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'm an empathic listener and bring a compassionate, soulful, and nonjudgmental attitude to my practice. My intention is to provide clients a relaxed space to unpack the past, know the present, and imagine future scenarios. Together we will investigate cycles and trends, themes in your life, your unique talents and obstacles. Through examining known strengths [and perceived limitations], my goal is to assist you in moving toward greater well-being, purposefulness, understanding, and joy in your uniquely precious life.
All work together is confidential.

"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.
