If you want to deepen your intuitive abilities, integrating your inner wisdom with your healing/teaching practice, this is the class for you.

Learning to read body health and the energy vibration of rooms, buildings and even land spaces can be helpful personally, in our relationships and in healing work. This skill is primarily clairvoyant, the ability to read energies visually, yet for some the information will come in kinesthetically or empathically.
Our chart reflects one major karmic theme and a few sub-themes. Understanding these themes, challenging habit patterns, growth tactics and the evolutionary goal state is the key to a deep and rich reading, creating the underlying tapestry from which we can heal our current life story.
You can learn to deepen and clarify your intuitive skills and integrate them into your readings, not to mention feeling clearer and more in tune with your own life. This lecture offers you practical, grounded, time-tested tools to deepen your psychic senses safely, developing verifiable clarity and trust.
The skilled use of intuition can facilitate a powerful, healing astrological reading. Without intuition or empathic resonance, new astrologers sometimes aren’t quite sure where to start the consultation or how to decide what’s truly relevant, and even seasoned astrologers sometimes fail to really “see” the client.
When we explain the meaning of hard aspects or nodal oppositions to a client, sometimes they “get it” and are able to integrate the energies and change behavior and events, yet often they continue to feel stuck.
A deep dive into the astrology of relationship—how your own chart predisposes you to gifts and challenges—and how you can heal to the highest evolutionary intent.
