Our birth chart reveals the depth of ourselves including the bottom of the barrel of some of the toughest struggles and deepest psychological conditions we encounter in our lives. In approaching the birth chart as a blueprint for healing the great benefit and potential of what astrology can offer humanity can be explored, tested and utilized.

Over the past several years, I have explored the role Ceres plays in the natal chart in readings focused on the client's relationship to food. Though most of us assume that relationship to food should be uncomplicated, disordered eating is rampant, and I find that every person's "food story" is both deeply personal and highly individual.
The personal and individual nature of relationship to food suggests that the daily rhythm of eating and food preparation is in fact much more meaningful than we have imagined, and the planet Ceres is the astrological index of this most fundamental act of self-care.
My talk will explore how our relationship to food is imprinted by the energetic rhythm of our mother or care-taker. I will discuss how Ceres manifests through the signs using examples, and then offer ideas for how we can re-conceptualize relationship to food toward helping clients heal their food anxiety, food shame, and disordered eating. Note: I won't be giving out any nutritional advice or dieting tips! My work with Ceres focuses instead on how to increase feelings of groundedness and abundance by creating positive rituals around food.

A “return” marks the moment when a transiting planet returns to its natal position. This shows a re-emphasis of the natal theme of that planet in your life through a new lens.

Many of us know that Pluto’s transit through a sign is a marker of generational influence. However, the sub-generations that form through the transits of the other outer planets are worthy of deeper analysis for a multifaceted view of a particular group.
This lecture focuses on Pluto in Scorpio aka Millennials and their generational signatures, as well as providing a glimpse into the Pluto in Sagittarius generation aka Gen Z, and beyond. We’ll take a look at the mundane events that occurred while Pluto was in Scorpio, their correlation to planetary patterns, and the resulting generational traits that are apparent in Millennials. This lecture will provide a more nuanced understanding of what makes a Millennial a Millennial, what distinguishes them from other generations, and their presumed destiny as a collective group.
