Your first reading! We'll talk about how your "big three"—your ascendant, Sun and Moon—interact with other planets and points to shape your chart as a whole. My goal is to demystify the natal wheel, and leave you excited and confident about further exploring western astrology.

40 minutes, $30–45

ascendant reading: For the astro-curious not quite ready for a birth chart reading. I'll introduce you to the ruler of your rising sign, the cornerstone of my full natal sessions and one of my favorite things to discuss.
