Hi! I’m Catherine. I’m a traditional astrologer. I use Hellenistic horoscopic techniques, plus a healthy dose of renaissance, medieval, and some modern psychological astrology. I began my client practice in earnest on the Summer Solstice of 2018.
Enough about me, what about the charts?
1.5 hour natal chart reading: $135. These longer sessions are for deep divers and first timers. If you’re new to me, you can think of this reading as sort of an “intake” session, to lay the foundation for a deep understanding between me, you and your birth chart. Also perfect for return clients and seasoned astro geeks who want to take a good long look and have plenty of time to get into the juicy details.
1 hour reading: $90. These sessions are great for return clients who want to continue the thread of conversation and pick up where we left off in our first session. They’re also great for those who have sat down with me before and want to take another, closer look at a specific area of the chart, or a specific life topic (examples include: “can we dive deep into my Mars-Venus square?” or “What’s going on for me in my career?”).
I also read tarot, and have years of experience with that modality of divination (my first love). I dig incorporating this practice into astrological readings.
You like external credentials? I’ve got external credentials! In May 2018, I completed my year-long apprenticeship in Traditional Astrology with Acyuta Bhava-Das, of Nightlight Astrology. As of December 2019, I’ve completed the second year of that apprenticeship. I have also taken Acyuta’s year-long Horary Astrology course.
I’ve had the honor of learning from a wealth of other talented teachers – those who have had the strongest influence on my practice are Austin Coppock, Chris Brennan, and Jason Holley. This should give a flavor of the disparate knowledge streams that I’m incorporating into my practice.
I am a proud member of the Association for Young Astrologers (AYA) and I have a B.S. in Neuroscience (focus in cognitive science) with a minor in Religion (mostly Eastern religion and Western mysticism) from Temple University. While that last thing isn’t directly related to astrology, the study I’ve done in these two areas have deeply informed my thinking and my practice.
In an effort to enact my ethics in real life, I offer a few need-based consultation each year to folks who cannot afford the standard cost. Socialism in our lifetime, amirite? If you’re a queer person, a person of color, you work in a discriminated-against profession (sex work, for example), you are living with a disability, you are experiencing intractable poverty, or you perform a form of unpaid labor that takes up your time without compensation (parenthood without a financially supportive partner, for example), or ANY OTHER CIRCUMSTANCE, and you cannot afford a full cost consultation, you STILL deserve astrology at a price-point you can achieve. I offer as many slots for this as I can manage in a year. If you’d like a consult, reach out, and we’ll see what we can work out. There is no need to describe your situation. Simply give me your best guess as to what you can afford. Limited slots available.
Feel free to also use this form for any questions or client feedback! If you’ve worked with me in the past, this is a great place to drop a quick testimonial for me to publish on my site!
