Together we will explore the complexity, richness & mystery that is your life.
Meeting You Where You’re At:
I’ll meet you wherever you’re at depending on your level of understanding in regards to astrology. If this is your first astrology session I will read in down-to-earth language and cut out any unnecessary “astro-speak” or “psychobabble.” If you have some experience with astrology and are interested we can go into greater detail with the specific techniques I am using to interpret your chart (the how & why components).
Payment & Reciprocity:
Payment can be made through PayPal, or can be made in person with cash or check. Please note that you can purchase a session on this page through PayPal, but you still need to visit Book Now on the top bar menu tab. You can also call me @ 828-206-2337 in order to make your booking.
I believe that astrology should be affordable, and available to anyone truly interested regardless of income or resource capacity. If the low-end of the sliding-scale payment option still seems financially unattainable please contact me and we can discuss trades or alternative exchanges.
In-person sessions occur in Barnardsville, NC (Just 20 minutes from Asheville, NC). For directions please see this page: Directions to Wild Abundance. Non-local sessions can be done over Zoom or by phone.
