Cherry blossoms and snow outside my house.

How do you know that the pilgrim track
Along the belting zodiac

Swept by the sun in his seeming rounds
Is traced by now to the Fishes’ bounds
And into the Ram, when weeks of cloud
Have wrapt the sky in a clammy shroud,
And never as yet a tinct of spring
Has shown in the Earth’s apparelling;
O vespering bird, how do you know,
How do you know?
How do you know, deep underground,
Hid in your bed from sight and sound,
Without a turn in temperature,
With weather life can scarce endure,
That light has won a fraction’s strength,
And day put on some moments’ length,
Whereof in merest rote will come,
Weeks hence, mild airs that do not numb;
 O crocus root, how do you know,
 How do you know?
Thomas Hardy

Astrological Consultations

Consultations

“I’m still staggered by the powerful truths that you saw immediately, and which no other astrologer has ever commented on”
“I’ve never had a more illuminating and nuanced reading”
“I so appreciate your insight and wisdom. I no longer have to look for an astrologer. I have found the best!”

My writings here naturally have to be general in nature. To learn more about your personal situation and your specific cosmic circumstances, please get in touch for a private consultation. I deliver these in person or via video link, and have clients all over the world - from Canada to New Zealand and from India to Brazil. A single consultation of 50 minutes will illuminate the patterns and influences that have shaped your life story and will help show you the way forward.
