1. Chart Reading
Your natal chart is a snapshot of the sky, taken at your moment of birth. The position of the planets and the way they interact reveals in astounding amount about your life choices, desires, needs, talents and drives. To complete a reading I need the information you see in this image; your exact date, time and place of birth.
Anyone who doesn’t have their time of birth, we can try and work it out; there is always a solution. (FYI this is not my date of birth, it’s just a date I love… a personal renaissance.) The reason I love that date is because the transits at that time really activated a previously unseen feature of my personality. That is something we look at in chart readings; how the current planetary positions ‘talk to’ or interact with our natal chart.
The birth chart is very personal, the way transits effect us is also v. personal. Just one of the reasons I am not into more generalised horoscopes. I don’t understand why astrologers dilute astrology this way. Sun sign horoscopes are not simplified astrology (simplifying is a noble task) diluting is to weaken the essence of what astrology is and that is not a good thing.
How it works:
If you decide to have a reading with me I will look at your chart and really familiarise myself with the aspects, transits, progressions, directions; i.e., I will do the math! I will call or email you and ask a few questions based on what I pick up and ascertain what it is you want from the reading. This will usually range from sheer curiosity to career questions or relationship questions.
Our conversation will be recorded (unless you do not want a recording) and will be 90 – 120 minutes long.
I will send you the recording so that you can listen back in a few days / years.
The cost of the reading is £120.
The cost of a reading that includes an arty print of your chart in your choice of colour is £145 (see my Etsy shop for more details.)
After the reading you have 7 days to send me an email with any questions or points that you would like to have clarified and I will happily reply in full. I know that a reading can be overwhelming and there can be one question that rattles in your head at night.
2. Natal Chart Packages
This is for people who are dealing with a persistent pattern that they are struggling to shift. I want to help them to shine as much light as possible on themselves. The first reading will light some sparks of awareness, hopefully soothe someone (so they don’t feel so out of control) and then inspire them to act.
I know what helped me was returning to the question, time and time again. Repetition is key! For anyone else who wants help being held accountable and wants to feel they are committing to growth, I am creating this package. So far clients have questions that they are working with, or come back with new questions. I would love to create a narrative around your chart, hold both you and I accountable and ensure that change is navigated with wisdom and productivity.

3. Infant Charts Options
“A child is born on that day and at that hour when the celestial rays are in mathematical harmony with his individual karma.” ~ Sri Yukteswa
I recently attended a workshop on how to approach this tricky part of astrology and really loved what I came away with. I’ve created a few options around these charts.
Simple Chart Explanation
Sun, Moon, Rising sign explanation including baby perspectives on their character and the child’s learning style.
Whole chart overview; including baby perspectives on their character and the child’s suggested learning style. Including a feel of the chart and any potential areas of focus.
Future Focus Infant Chart
Besides a basic discussion of the energy of the chart, what is really useful to do with a baby’s horoscope is to look forwards and spot any transits and progressions that could be difficult. I really loved this idea. If the child is experiencing a hefty Pluto transit, this could be his goldfish dying or losing his favourite bear. This Pluto transit does not necessarily represent anything tragic, and I am not a psychic astrologer so have little idea of precise manifestations of transits.
However, I can suggest that a child will be experiencing grief for the first time and will need their grief explaining and acknowledging. This applies to a need for freedom, to explaining their learning style I think that nugget of knowledge is gold dust.
This chart is a written report and can be completed for the first seven years of life or for the first fourteen. It includes; the child’s fundamental drives and needs, their learning style and potential interests and behaviours.
The cost of the first ten years is £180 and the cost for eighteen years is £300.
4. Relationship Charts
I love this.
This is alchemy and astrology at its finest.
I take two charts, two people; lovers, relatives, friends and look at the relationship dynamic. What attracts you, what drives you crazy. How to resolve? Well, I can try to suggest…
This sort of astrology isn’t for everyone but I love to put my waders on and get right in there! If you’ve come to see an astrologer, then you want to know.
This will be a spoken consultation and recorded. If one half of the relationship is not going to be present then please ensure you have permission to use their chart. I will need the time, date and place of birth for both of you. If one of the times is missing, that’s OK, but not the best. It’s always best to have times.
The cost of a relationship reading is £120.
The cost of this chart print below below which is actually of an election (a moment) but can be created to represent the composite chart, is £40.
5. Solar Return
Many Happy Returns!
Why do we say that?
We say it because your birthday is actually your Solar Return! When the sun appears to be at the same place in the the sky that it was at the moment of your birth.
To look at the feel of your year ahead I can draw up the chart of a birthday and give someone a feel of their year ahead.
This is best for someone who already has a good understanding of their natal chart and would like more detail. This chart builds upon the natal chart.
I will send a two or three page report on the year ahead and a computer generated report that outlines all aspects.
The cost of a Solar Return reading is £75.
I will need the time, date and place of the subjects birth.
6. Live Reading

Give me your time, date and place of birth and I’ll go through the basics with you. Your sun, rising, ascendent and moon. Some patterns, your career, your talents.
Naturally I can only go so far without the depth of a longer reading but I offer this for people who would like a taster.
