This space is for frequently asked questions about working with Crystal
- What is Astrology?
Astrology literally means the “the language of the stars” – derived from the Greek words Astron meaning ‘Star’ and Logos which means ‘word’. It is the belief that the celestial bodies (planets, stars, constellations, etc.) effect and influence our daily lives (mood, personality, environment, etc.) based on the date, time, and location you were born. My job is to interpret and translate the language by sharing the meaning, influence, and wisdom of the stars in a practical and applicable way.
- What happens in an Astrology reading?
During our time together, expect to gain a deeper understanding of who you are, by learning about your personality traits, your strengths + weaknesses, themes and patterns, as well as the current cycle you’re living out. We will focus on any topic or challenge you would like, and answer any questions you may have. At the end, we will wrap it up with one or two directives to make everything practical and applicable for you.
- What is a ‘Natal Chart, or Birth chart’?
A map of where the planets and stars were at the exact time you were born. It is unique to you and your birth, place, and time. Think of it like a cosmic blueprint that maps out your psyche. It suggests your personality, karma, purpose, life lessons, and highlights your strengths and weaknesses, as well as your characteristics.
- Why Astrology?
First, Astrology should not be used to define your life, but as a tool to help guide you. Its usage is great for self discovery, personal development, as well as increasing your self-awareness and compassion for those around you – helping you soften and become more gentle with the way you approach and interact with the world, rather than comparing, judging and competing with everyone and everything.
Astrology helps you understand yourself and your present reality, which unlocks wisdom that helps you heal the past and influence the course of your future, as you begin to operate with that newfound awareness. Helping you write a new life story that works for you, rather than against you.
It is just one doorway to self-transformation, and you can read more about my personal journey with Astrology and how it helped me here.
- Why work with me?
One of the things that gives me an edge is my degree in Linguistics and English. This makes me an expert (Read: Nerd) with languages and their mechanics.
I have spent years studying language form, patterns, meaning, and context. Because of this I am well equipped to notice the overarching patterns going on in your birth chart, and am able to interpret the complex language of the stars in return.
Combined with my teaching experience, I am able to translate its wisdom in a simple way that allows you to absorb the information without the confusion and headache.
With my authentic delivery, I have been described as relatable and practical, as well as grounding and comfortable to talk to.
When you speak with me you’ll feel my optimism, curiosity, and grounded realism in my approach with these elusive and abstract concepts, like spirituality and metaphysics.
My varied life experiences, professional experiences, and authentic demeanor provide me the wayshowing wisdom to help you broaden your perspective and dissolve limiting beliefs.
By providing you insightful, self-explorative, and applicable information unique to you during our sessions, you can discover the power within yourself to change your life story.
- How do I do what I do?
There are many tools in my toolbox that I will use; however, I always use Debra Silverman’s Applied Astrology method to weave it all together, and provide you practical and applicable information and directives – her method is mostly why my sessions are so successful!
I also ensure that I remain a heart with ears during our time together, so I can be acutely present and can listen as closely as possible without any judgement.
- What if I don’t know my birth time?
We can still do a reading, however, we will be missing some information. We will still be able to discuss most of your personality traits, themes/patterns, and current influences.
Alternatively, you can find an Astrologer who specializes in rectifying birth chart times. They work with specific dates and key events in your life to work backwards, and find the most accurate birth time without having an official record to refer to.
- Can I get a reading about my child, family member, friend, partner?
I offer compatibility readings that can give you insights into how you and another would get along in various ways
I offer readings for parents who want to gain insights and direction on how to best navigate the personality of their child while still meeting their needs.
- Are you available for freelancing services and collaborations?
Yes I am. Please message me here to talk more about your idea!
