About me and what to expect

I have studied astrology for nearly fifteen years under one of Canada’s most cutting edge astrologers, Monica Orlowski, and with the Canadian Association for Astrological Education (CAAE).

In addition to using some modern Western astrology techniques, I rely heavily on the chart interpretation methods of Jean Baptiste Morin de Villefranche.  Morin was a 17th century French astrologer, physician and mathematician who wrote a 26-book treatise on astrology and natural philosophy, Astrologia Gallica, that sets out a systematic and practical astrological approach.  Morin intended the work to cull a reasoned and elegant system of horoscope interpretation from what he saw as a compromised Western astrological history.  His approach is one of synthesis, that is, to see the natal chart as a unit.  With only astrological analysis through modern Western astrology techniques, the chart remains lifeless.  When I was first introduced to Morin’s method, it felt like I had finally found that missing link.  I couldn’t believe how quickly I could look at a chart and understand the essence of the person living and breathing this chart.  Morin’s method of synthesis animates the chart and makes it come alive.  For more information on Morin, please visit: http://www.astro.com/astrology/in_morin_e.htm.

A former college teacher, I hold a Master’s degree in professional writing and communications.  In addition to practising and teaching astrology, I work in communications for the public sector and am also a singer-songwriter.

I spend a great deal of time working on your chart before we even hold our session. At your consultation, I will give you plenty of written information so that you’re able to follow along, listen and ask questions during the reading instead of being concerned about capturing what I’m saying.  You are also welcome to record the session.
