My recommendation for charts is Savitri Bess. Because Savitri combines different ways of looking at charts with excellent intuition, she is my "go to" for "what’s going on with the stars" person! --Winter Robinson (medical intuitive, author, therapist, educator)

Oh I love these readings so ... Being given permission by you and by the stars to let others "do-for" themselves has been deeply healing and I can feel how things will shift with the work ahead in such a positive way. -- Client in Maine


Savitri is a therapist, astrologer and artist with Master's degree in counseling and Master of Fine Arts degree in fiber arts.

She has been offering counseling and astrology readings for over 35 years. Drawing on her life experience living in ashrams and in countries around the globe, she loves to work with people on personal and spiritual growth. Her Jungian studies adds another dimension to her work, including the study of astrological archetypes.

Since 1992, Savitri's devotion to the Holy Mother Ammachi (Amma), the “Hugging Saint,” serves as guiding light in her work.

heart-centered counseling and astrology

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch. The door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep.
--Rumi

Astrological readings


Astrology's like opening your inner book--having a look at all your gifts and talents, what gets you going, what stops you.

You will discover all the ways you can enrich your life, using the map of your horoscope as guide.

Your chart reveals your life purpose, all about love and marriage, family and children, profession, money, education, friends, partners, legacies, and more.

You will find out what is going on in your life right now and in the near future.

And, very important, you will find out how to live well with life's difficulties and obstacles. Included are recommendations for alleviating negative influences and enhancing positive qualities inherent in your chart.


astrology can help you better understand your children


Astrology charts cast for you and your spouse and one or more children can help you understand your child and what makes him or her tick. As seen in the birth chart, do you have a dreamer, an artist or musician, or a practical child with talent in the sciences or auto mechanics?

The charts show the specific ways you are connected with your child which can help you understand him more and guide him or her through young years.

Here's what one mother had to say after I did her child's chart: It was a real benefit for me to hear that some of the troubles we were having with our son were in his chart....as a mother, you always figure that if your child is troubled that it is your fault...huge relief and good perspective to understanding that children come in to life with certain things that are not yours to take responsibility for or fix.


How to get started


I'll need your birth date, time of birth, and place of birth.

Please ask questions before the reading, as then I can study these and address them well.

As soon as I cast your chart, we make an appointment or I send you your reading by e-mail.

Your reading will be an hour long (or equivalent e-mail reading).

If, after your reading, you have further questions please feel free to ask.


Whoever comes into the river of Love will be bathed in it,
whether the person is healthy or diseased,
a man or a woman, wealthy or poor.
Anyone can take any number of dips in the river of Love.
--Amma

Counseling Practice Overview


In order to become free of the ways you are stopping your energy flow, you will want to understand better your unique nature. Who are you at the core? What is your purpose in life?

There are various ways I can use that will help you untangle the inner knots or deal with depression that might be preventing the free-flow of your energy and blocking the expression of your talents.

Perhaps you are at a cross-roads in life and need help deciding how to move forward.

Perhaps you are in relationship and need guidance for communicating in ways that bring more harmony and peace (spouse, work place, friends).


Note: when we work together in counseling, I also use your astrological chart to guide us from time to time.

What to expect?


At your first appointment, we will discuss what you would like to have happen. I will then suggest ways that we can together accomplish your goal. We will decide together how to proceed according to the possible ways of working. Usually there will be several sessions needed and I will want to do your astrological chart so we can map the course of counseling more easily and effectively. Counseling is a partnership and we will work together.


There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled.
There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled.
You feel it, don't you?
---Rumi
