Life Purpose Astrology

Your initial Soul Journey Astrology consultation provides a comprehensive analysis of your life purpose, life plan and potential. It is a Big Picture approach to your natal chart, viewing your current life experience in a larger evolutionary context. You will learn about your soul’s archetypal role and the history of your incarnational experience. Finally, in every session, your life path is tracked using the seven year Saturn cycle that marks key transformational turning points and indicates future possibilities. Amazing clarity can be gained from this process.

Discovering Your Soul Archetype

ARCHETYPES! We are all crazy about archetypes—dozens of books and on-line quizzes can help you identify your inborn biases and prominent inner personalities—hundreds of them. However, we each have only ONE SOUL ARCHETYPE. This is our primary role--one of seven: king, warrior, artisan, server, sage, priest or scholar—which serves as a baseline for our experiences throughout the thousands of lifetimes in an incarnational cycle. Information about your primary archetypal role, as well as your level of Soul development, or Soul Age, is derived from the Michael System.

This information serves as a lens for interpreting your chart data, including your Soul Mission (life purpose), work and career options. Each Soul Archetype, or role, also has a unique history of past life experiences. Extensive investigation into your past life patterns and how they are affecting your present life circumstances, promotes a deeper understanding of your current challenges and aids in the emergence of clear future directions.


About the Session

Life Purpose Assessment sessions are 1 ½ hours long. They are conducted in person, by phone or Skype. All sessions are recorded. The session costs $300. A $100 non-refundable deposit, via Pay Pal or check, is due with the submission of pre-session materials. All information is strictly confidential!  Follow up coaching is available at a rate of $100 per hour.

Preparing for a session:

For your initial Life Purpose Assessment session you will need to supply accurate birth data (date, exact time and place of your birth) from a reliable source such as a birth certificate. You will also need to fill out and return a New Client Questionnaire a Life Turning Points Report, submit a recent photograph and fill out a brief on-line survey. An up-to-date resume, including education and work experience is also required. Clients report that the pre-session preparation helps them to put their life experience into perspective. Appointments are scheduled after all documentation is submitted.


Vocational Astrology

"There is something that you can do better than anyone else in the whole world."

Deepak Chopra

If you are dissatisfied at work, chances are you are not being appropriately challenged, are out of touch with your larger vision, or the true purpose of work in your life. Each person has a soul contract to develop his or her special gifts and a mission for which his unique abilities are perfectly tailored. Vocational information is an important part of every initial SJA consultation. A natal chart contains information on an individual's aptitudes, special abilities, talents, gifts, and natural biases. It reveals how these can be utilized through work, whether vocation or avocation.

Right Livelihood

breaking freeWork is an integral part of our lives; it defines everything we DO--whether for, or not for, profit. The concept of work is more global than that of a job--a narrowly defined, task-oriented occupation, generally performed for pay. A career is a sustained long-term job, requiring the development of specialized expertise and the building of a professional reputation. While a career can also be a vocation, the Latin root of the word vocation is vocare which means to call. A Vocation, a Calling or Right Livelihood, is work that emanates from the heart and soul and ultimately leads to the fulfillment of one’s World Service. Right Livelihood is an ancient Buddhist term, originally used to describe work which does no harm and evolving in contemporary times to define work which reflects the vision, values, life purpose and philosophy of an individual. It is a vehicle through which one channels unique abilities and frees the soul to make a difference in the world.

Past Life Regression

"My life often seemed to me like a story that has no beginning and no end. I had the feeling that I was an historical fragment, an excerpt for which the preceding and succeeding text was missing. I could well imagine that I might have lived in former centuries and there encountered questions I was not yet able to answer; that I had been born again because I had not fulfilled the task given to me."

Carl Jung

past lives

Did you come into this life carrying old baggage? Do you notice the same old patterns re-surfacing over and over again? The same dysfunctional relationships? Do you have fears, phobias, addictions, self destructive behaviors, blockages, habits or emotional vulnerabilities that impede your daily functioning?

These are the kinds of conditions that Past Life Therapy (PLT) addresses. It is a powerful tool for healing and transformation. While no one can prove, or disprove, the theory of reincarnation, under hypnosis subjects often access memories from the subconscious mind that appear to be past lives. (An alternative explanation is that they are tapping into what Carl Jung called the collective consciousness.) Remembering past-life experiences can make us aware of unresolved issues, dysfunctional beliefs and outdated attitudes we are unconsciously perpetuating. Working with this material helps us to let go of debilitating pain and guilt, and opens the doorway to new possibilities in work, relationships, family life and personal success. 

PLT sessions are available as follow-up to the Life Purpose Assessment. They are conducted in-person or via Skype video. They are approximately two hours in length and cost $200.

Intuitive Counseling

Channeling: Accessing Higher Guidance

light worker

Channeling is a vehicle for connecting to greater wisdom from those on the higher planes of existence. These guides and masters have more experience, resources, information and a larger perspective than we do on the physical plane. As a channel I can also receive guidance from my own Higher Self (Soul) or from the collective consciousness. I am able to tap more deeply into the vast storehouse of astrological and spiritual knowledge I have accumulated (over several lifetimes) and access profound insights into my client’s birth chart. I also bring forward past life information. In deep trance channeling, the channel is often put aside while another entity speaks through him or her. Light trance channels receive information intuitively and remain conscious during the session. Come to a session with clear questions and expect some unexpected answers! Always uplifting and empowering.

Chakra Clearing

How much of your energy is really yours? Are you a magnet for astral garbage? We are multi-dimensional beings. Our bodies often carry energies that do not belong to us. These energies anchor primarily in our chakra systems. The sources of these energies can be lost souls (ghosts), entity attachments and negative thought forms. Sometimes we bring in objects from past lives—ropes, knives, swords, articles of clothing, etc. When these are sent into the light, we feel lighter—we have shed some heavy baggage and more of ourselves is available to us.

Intuitive sessions are available only as follow-up to the Life Purpose Assessment.
They are conducted in-person or via Skype video.
Sessions are one to two hours long and are billed at $100 per hour.

Soul Journey Collage


SOUL JOURNEY COLLAGE brings together the ancient wisdom of astrology and the powerfully creative modality of SoulCollage®. They are so complementary as to be considered a match made in heaven! Both systems are based on archetypes, universal symbols that resonate in the personal and collective psyche. The planets and signs in the individual birth chart represent the many aspects of our inner family. Their over-arching essences become masters and guides. After all, the planets were considered to be gods and goddesses!

In my classes, I use astrology to trigger the unconscious mind so that areas that are in need of attention, revelation, transformation and healing come to the surface. Planets in the birth chart, as well as important transits (current movements of the planets, point out these “hot spots”. The collage making process then reveals deeper levels of information and contributes to greater understanding and resolution of these issues. It is especially useful in working with aspects of what Carl Jung called the shadow, hidden and disowned aspects of the self.

Participants in these classes have different levels of astrological knowledge—beginning with none! I provide all the relevant information in handouts and meet each person where they are. Accurate birth data—date, time and place—are all you need to join in. It’s FUN!

Local in-person classes are conducted monthly in Roland Park in Baltimore Maryland. Teleclasses make this work available to folks all over the world. See the events schedule for all current class postings.
