"You've just honoured and made valuable
all that I have been through."

How do the archetypal languages, like Astrology, Numerology, and Mythology, support us?
The truth is, of course, that they won't make the challenges or obstacles in our lives any easier. We'll still go through experiences that are going to be painful. But ... in seeking the guidance of the archetypal languages, we're engaging a spiritual path that centres us inside whatever is unfolding. We're empowered to take a step back from our 'stories' and see the Bigger Picture of what is actually going on. The archetypal languages help us to make what is otherwise unconscious conscious. We're able to view our experiences through an archetypal lens, and embrace them for what they are: opportunities for Soul growth, rather than perpetually wondering, "Why does this keep happening to me???"
They also remind us to open ourselves to the wisdom and might of Great Mystery, without demanding that it limit or conform itself to our modern addiction to reason and logic. Can you appreciate the level of childish hubris we display when we insist that the eternal, limitless Life Force or Cosmic Mind restrict itself to only those notions that our human minds can comprehend??? It's more than hubris ... it's ludicrous! As the brilliant Sufi poet, Hafiz, once wrote:
Someone Should Start Laughing
I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question: How are you?
I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question: What is God?
If you think that the Truth can be known
If you think that the Sun and the Ocean
Can pass through that tiny opening
Called the mouth,
Oh, someone should start laughing!
Someone should start wildly laughing,
We are instead guided to surrender to our Soul's highest intentions, as revealed in our natal charts, and to offer the sincere prayer, "I am willing for my life to be dismantled and restructured in accordance with my highest purpose." At this level, we truly see the highest potential of our incarnation, and are able to take full responsibility for our life.
The symbolic languages also remind us that literal information, such as our birth name and date of birth, is useless if we fail to use it as an ascension point to a more symbolic perspective. By revealing the Blueprint of our Soul's intentions for this lifetime, we're gifted a greater level of Soul guidance and wisdom than otherwise exists at this mundane, rational level of human consciousness. Indeed, we're reminded to lift our eyes to that which is eternal. We realise the presence of a loyal, unseen force that weaves its way through everything we've ever experienced. We're blessed to realise that we belong to something far greater, that will not abandon nor exclude us!
What a relief to know that we're not at the mercy of random, pointless situations and people! We're actually empowered, bold Souls doing extraordinary work, through precise events and relationships that support our Path!
We come to understand that Life has always had our back. Nothing has ever been random. And everything we've ever experienced has loyally served our Soul's growth. Considering how chaotic life can seem at times, this awareness of an underlying purpose and intelligence is truly a magnificent gift!

People are often curious about the foundational premise that underlies my work: Life has our backs. Yes, even (or most especially) when we feel like we are fighting a losing battle against a raging, metaphysical storm. When Life has left you catatonic on the couch, struggling to understand WTF just happened, and wondering where you're supposed to go from here, it sure doesn't feel like Life has your back, right? I've been there. Literally.
As strange as it may sound, though, I actually believe that that's the real moment when we know for sure that Life has faith in us, and is serving our highest growth potential.
If your initial response on reading that is "Huh???" I hear you! It's okay if that feels confronting or confusing, at first.
Here's what I believe … it's pretty simple. There is an underlying intelligence weaving its way throughout all of life, connecting everything. As an astrologer and numerologist, I work with this underlying intelligence every day. I see it at play in everyone's charts, in everyone's lives. What I now know for sure is this:
We live in an ensouled Cosmos.
Life has your back.
Nothing has ever been random.
Everything you've ever experienced has loyally served your Soul's growth.
I believe that our Souls incarnate for specific reasons. There is something we'd like to learn; gifts we'd like to share; and, most likely, a weak link in our very Being that needs to be strengthened. There is a new wisdom to be mastered and integrated; karmic imbalances to be addressed; or old habitual patterns that need to be broken down and transformed.
We have incarnated to do the work of our Soul; the work of personal and spiritual growth. We're walking an evolutionary path, and have committed to a curriculum of our own design and choosing. An extraordinary, underlying intelligence draws to us those precise relationships, dynamics, and experiences that will create the necessary emotional landscape for us to learn what we said we wanted to learn … even if those experiences seem difficult, unwanted, or harsh to us.
I often envisage my Soul doing a Happy Dance on the other side of the veil, while I struggle and wrestle with some enormous new learning on this side!
Because the truth is that Numerology and Astrology don't make the challenges, or the things that are difficult in our lives any easier. We'll still go through painful experiences. But now we're empowered to view our lives through an archetypal lens and see the bigger picture in play.
Your life definitely has a plan! Do you trust it??
Life is not trying to stop you!
Whatever your personal battle is, please know that Life is not trying to stop you. It's trying to strengthen you, in precisely the areas you said you wanted to be strengthened. It's doing you a favour in gifting these experiences to you, as hard as that may be to read. I always consider my struggles and pain to be a backhanded compliment from the Divine realms. To me, it feels like they're saying that they haven't given up on me. They haven't left me in a room eating chocolates, saying "She can't be taught. We give up." No. They're still bringing me the opportunities to grow, like golden gifts on a silver platter. They still have faith in my ability to learn, in my capacity to grow.
Life has my back. And Life has yours, too.
I love this piece of prose from Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami. It expresses a passionate awareness of the intelligent relationship we seem to have with Life:
“Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions. You change direction, but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn. Why? Because this storm isn't something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you. This storm is you. Something inside of you. So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm, closing your eyes and plugging up your ears so the sand doesn't get in, and walk through it, step by step. There's no sun there, no moon, no direction, no sense of time. Just fine white sand swirling up into the sky like pulverized bones. That's the kind of sandstorm you need to imagine.
And you really will have to make it through that violent, metaphysical, symbolic storm. No matter how metaphysical or symbolic it might be, make no mistake about it: it will cut through flesh like a thousand razor blades. People will bleed there, and you will bleed too. Hot, red blood. You'll catch that blood in your hands, your own blood and the blood of others.
And once the storm is over you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about.”
I love Murakami's prose because it highlights the metaphysical, Divine forces that choose to wrestle with us; to shape us with their might and strength. Do you think you can defeat a metaphysical storm? An archetype? ANY of the eternal, immortal, infinite Invisibles?? In your current form, you are a mere, finite mortal. As Rilke says, "What is extraordinary and eternal does not want to be bent by us." It would be hubris to believe we could defeat them!
But engaging the Storm that pursues us, is not about defeating the Invisibles. It is about recognising the greater wisdom of the battle, of the Storm. It's about willingly taking the blows and throwing a few of our own! It's about who we can become by choosing to actively engage the Storm, rather than battening down the hatches and just riding it out.
Please know that wherever you find yourself, and whatever Storm you find yourself engaged in, it was custom designed perfectly for you. As they say, what doesn't challenge you, doesn't change you.
I believe that our path of personal and spiritual growth requires us to recognise the underlying intelligence that has brought us our struggles as well as our successes.
Walking this path means trusting the process; trusting our story; trusting Life itself.
Astrology and Numerology:
You know how Life seems to give us the test first (ie: the Storm) and the lesson afterwards? Wouldn't it be great to have some sort of heads-up regarding the lesson while we're actually in the Storm? Wouldn't that help us navigate it??
In my experience, astrology and numerology are two of the greatest tools we have to reveal the bigger picture of what's going on. These archetypal languages offer us a level of Symbolic Sight and Soul guidance that is otherwise missing in this mundane realm. They help us understand our personal curriculum or blueprint for this incarnation.
While this journey of self-discovery can feel daunting, or even overwhelming, at times, the insights gifted through astrology and numerology help us to understand the underlying purpose of our life's experiences. Just understanding why the Storm is dancing with us can change our entire perspective on things. It's liberating! Empowering!
Imagine grounding your experiences within a much broader context than just this one particular lifetime. Imagine understanding your personal Storm! Imagine feeling validated in who you truly are, and the life you yearn to create. Imagine embracing greater levels of compassion, love, and respect for both yourself and others. Imagine the relief that comes with realising that nothing has ever been random, after all.
Imagine knowing that Life has always had your back.
Imagine the sense of freedom that comes with this knowledge …
I invite you to join me for a consultation, or to take a deep dive into these archetypal waters by joining me for a course! But even if we never work together, I hope that by sharing my perspective with you, you're able to feel a greater level of faith in the process of Life. #trusttheprocess
WORKING WITH ME:
My sessions are a safe space for people of all cultures, religions, sexualities, genders (trans-friendly), and relationship dynamics (eg: polyamory).
One of the reasons I love astrology is because it's truly an international language. No matter how old you are, or what your skin colour, sexuality, or gender identity is; no matter what your political, metaphysical, or religious beliefs are; and no matter which country you're from, we all gaze up at the same stars as they dance across the night sky.
Astrology and numerology guide, empower, and nurture us all!
I'd love to share this work with you, beautiful, brave people!
Sessions are offered in person here in Katoomba in the Blue Mountains, or around the country when I travel to teach. I also offer sessions nationally/internationally via Zoom, an online, video conferencing service. No matter where you are in the world, we can connect for private consultations! Your charts and an MP4 recording will be provided with each online session. You are more than welcome to voice record sessions held in person.
The following accurate birth information is required for our session to be successful:
Full, Original Birth Name (ie: Maiden Name) (for Numerology)
Date of Birth (for Numerology and Astrology)
Time of Birth (for Astrology)
Place of Birth (for Astrology)
As well as private sessions, I also offer individual and group tuition. I love sharing this body of work! I am currently accepting private students, and have a new group course beginning shortly online. Otherwise, keep an eye on my Group and Private Tuition pages for other upcoming dates and venues! I'm currently teaching in Wollongong, and have courses planned for Armidale (NSW) & Latrobe (Tas).
WHO I AM NOT SUITED FOR:
My services are not suitable for those seeking entertainment, nor those seeking definitive predictions of future outcomes. My sessions are also unsuitable for those seeking a psychic or a medium. I am an astrologer and numerologist; not a channel or psychic.
Please note that I can only provide astrological/numerological insight on the client's chart, not another person’s who isn’t present (unless we have their express permission to do so).
Also, while my sessions are often healing in nature, they are for guidance only. They are not a substitute for medical, therapeutic, or legal advice. Clients are responsible for their own well-being and transformational journey. We are all responsible for our own Free Will.
If you are considering a reading as a special gift, please ensure that the recipient is open to the concepts of astrological and numerological insight. Thank you.
I appreciate the opportunity to explore your natal charts together,
and to share your journey with you. It is a privilege and an honour to have your trust. I feel so grateful that you are here to celebrate the sky above and to celebrate your lives with me.
