"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)

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.

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.

What Can be expected

untangling your knots, personal growth, uncovering your story, working with your astrological archtypes, meditation visualizations, resolving the mystery of the ups and downs of your spiritual path and daily life, finding the core of yourself.

Counseling Practice Overview

In order to become free of the ways we stop our energy flow, we need to understand our unique nature.

Our unique nature reveals itself in countless ways: through our life story, through meditation, through dreams and images, through delving into personal archetypes, through various therapies that help us untangle the knots that prevent the free-flow of our God-given talents.

Each one of us has a special gift to offer the world. Sometimes there are several gifts and you have to choose, or you have to understand how they might work together to serve you. Sometimes you have to go on a treasure hunt to find all the clues that will help you unearth your abilities, or find out how to best use the ones you recognize.

This inner search is sometimes called the hero or heroine’s journey.

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

Astrological counseling

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.

What is this astrology?

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 everything there--the moisture, the dryness, the breeze--all the ways you can enrich your life, using the map of your horoscope as guide.

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

And, very important, you will find out how to live well with the hard stuff. Included are recommendations for alleviating difficulties and enhancing positive influences.

Counseling and astrology go hand-in-hand.

What to expect?

Your reading will be an hour to an hour and a half long, with plenty of time for questions and dialogue. Concering now and probabilities for the near future, Savitri uses various predictive methods--firdaria, transits, profections, solar returns, and progressions.

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

It helps to ask a few burning questions before the reading.

As soon as your chart cast, we make an appointment.

I recommend taping the session but taking notes works, too. If, after a few days, you have further questions we can talk on phone (for up to fifteen minutes), or by e-mail.

"You walker, there are no roads,
only wind trails on the sea."
--Antonio Machado
