All Sessions FAQ
Each Astrology+ session can include Astrology, Instant Divine Assistance Invocations and/or Shamanic Healing. Astrology fees include the session, prep time, and an MP3 of the session. They also include your written charts, reports, and AI-generated summary. Shamanic fees include the session, MP3, and AI-generated summary.
Long-distance Astrology+ clients can choose to see everything on my computer screen during their consultation via Zoom at no extra charge.
Your AstroShaman session will be unique and completely customized to your needs. It will be shaped by your needs, desires, and questions, as well as my experience and inner guidance.
In Astrology+ sessions, we typically explore your horoscope’s most important soul messages, as well as your most important challenges and opportunities during the next twelve months and beyond. If you choose to include Instant Divine Assistance Invocations and/or Shamanic Healing in your session, you might also experience healing and spiritual awakening.
Technically speaking, an Astrology+ session might include discussion of your natal chart, moving energies (transits, progressions and/or solar arcs), solar return(s) and/or Relocation Astrology.
If you prefer, we can focus on an astrological time period shorter than a year, and cover it in greater detail.
Sessions are typically available by appointment weekdays, 10 am – 7 pm US Eastern Time. Please contact me if you need to schedule outside those times. You can do your session by Zoom, by phone, or in person at my Asheville, NC office. Solo digital recordings are also available for Astrology+ sessions, most commonly for children’s charts.
I routinely receive intuitive insights for my clients during Astrology+, Shamanic Healing, and Life Coaching sessions. But I can’t tell someone exactly what’s going to happen to them. I can’t predict that a specific foreordained concrete event will happen at a particular time.
In my Astrology+ consultations, my intent is to educate clients about the best use of their natal and moving astrological energies. With this understanding, they can use their free will to make better decisions about how to consciously partner with these energies for a more happy, successful, and fulfilling life.
I lead my clients in one or more of my Instant Divine Assistance Invocations during all Shamanic Healing sessions, and some Astrology+ consultations. These invocations give you a simple, powerful way to maintain and deepen divine states of consciousness and call in healing energies. For my Astrology+ clients, invocations often provide an effective way to work through the challenges revealed by their charts. Whether or not we include invocations as part of your Astrology+ session is completely up to you.
I can do an Astrology+ reading with you even if you don’t know your birth time. But without a precise birth time, I can’t know the location of your planets within the astrological houses. And without houses, certain astrological information isn’t available.
To find your birth time, you can try to locate a birth certificate, baby book, or other document that may give the time of birth. (Visit this website to learn how to get an official copy of your birth certificate.) Or you can contact a family member who might know your birth time.
But if you can’t determine the time using those methods, there’s another way: rectification. This technique allows an astrologer to work from a list of significant life events to determine a client’s time of birth. I can refer you to an astrologer who does this, and who gives my clients a special reduced fee of $199 to determine their birth time.
You can also have your chart done with no birth time, which means no astrological houses. This still gives me most of your astrological information, and is enough for an accurate and helpful consultation. And, of course, any invocation and/or Shamanic Healing work we might do during the session (your Astrology+ session can also include these modalities) is independent of your astrology chart.
I work from the basic idea that we’re each an evolving soul temporarily inhabiting a human body. Prior to birth, we each choose the time and place where we’ll draw our first breath. This critical moment sets up a unique energy matrix marked by the positions of the planets. The resulting natal chart serves as the blueprint for that lifetime.
The more you live in harmony with this blueprint, the more wonderful and fulfilling life becomes. I can help you awaken to your soul’s intentions by accurately interpreting your natal chart. I can also tell you about the important energy shifts (transits, progressions, etc.) that affect your life.
Astrology shows your highest potential, as well as your ever-changing “cosmic weather.” But the astrology I practice isn’t fortune-telling: free will is always at play. My clients find that astrology helps them understand themselves better, fine-tune their life directions, and be much better prepared for life’s important challenges and opportunities.
Shamanic Healing FAQ
I’ve done energy healing for 45+ years, and have been a professional Shamanic Healer since 2012. I was called to this work by ayahuasca, the living spirit of a powerful sacred plant medicine. For thousands of years, ayahuasca has been used for healing and spiritual awakening by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon.
I’ve traveled to the Peruvian jungle five times to participate in deep-immersion ceremonial work with ayahuasca. As of November 2023, I’ve done 300+ plant spirit ceremonies with ayahuasca and other plant spirit teachers.
This profound work has turbocharged my healing and awakening process, and has been central to the development of my shamanic healing abilities. As a result, I easily and reliably partner with the spiritual dimensions to assist my clients.
I began my healing plant spirit work in 2006 by attending several San Pedro ceremonies. I spent many years cultivating the healing power of the Pachakuti Mesa, based on indigenous Peruvian healing traditions, and have also studied Sandra Ingerman-style Core Shamanism. I’m an ordained Shamanic Minister and a certified Shamanic Breathwork™ Facilitator.
I also did an intensive multi-year personal apprenticeship with two powerful shamanic teachers. These days, I’m mainly taught from within by ayahuasca and my divine allies.
I conduct Shamanic Healing sessions at a shamanic mesa, which is based on ancient healing technologies. It consists of a cloth on the floor supporting a powerful energy grid of stones, crystals and other sacred items. The mesa also includes rattles, tobacco, elixirs, musical instruments and more. My divine allies fine-tune the mesa’s divine frequencies to give you the best possible support during your session.
I activate the mesa by calling the directions in Q’echua, the ancient power language of the Incas. I then energize the mesa by calling in archangels, ascended masters, and other benevolent beings from many spiritual traditions.
I act as a conduit for divine energy during healing work. I follow the guidance of the client’s higher self, as well as my inner direction.
Some sessions are low-key, with most of the work done quietly and subtly. Others can be more dramatic. Either way, I strive to help each client receive the maximum long-term benefit from their Shamanic Healing session.
