New York City Certified Professional Consulting Astrologer
How to Schedule a Reading
Please read the types of readings I offer below. All over-the-phone readings must be paid in full in advance. There is a two week or more wait. Exceptions can be made for emergency or rush readings.
All readings require a minimum of 24 hours cancellation notice to reschedule. Sessions may be rescheduled. Deposit is non-refundable.
Your personal astrology reading is prepared using your date of birth, where you were born, and exact time of birth. The exact time should be on your birth certificate. You may obtain a copy of your birth certificate by writing to the Bureau of Vital Records in the city of your birth and requesting a "Complete" birth certificate. If you cannot obtain the time, See ‘Rectified Charts’ below and consider a rectification. I can work up a rectified chart based on specific important events in your life.
Your astrology reading will consist of an overview of your birth chart, a review of the current events in your life, and an overview of the upcoming months up to one year. Please bring up any specific areas you would like to discuss during your reading when we set up the reading. These may be any topics related to events in your life, either past, present or future. I use many of the standard astrological techniques in preparation for your reading including: transits, progressions, solar arc directions, solar returns, lunar returns (Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn returns may be used as well, depending on your current circumstances) planetary pictures/midpoints, eclipses, harmonic charts, astro*carto*graphy and more. (For a detailed astro*carto*graphy reading, please book a Relocation reading from the Specialized Readings section.)
Personal astrology readings are conducted in person. If you live in or plan to be in New York City, we can set up a personal reading. You will receive copies of the charts used to prepare your reading such as your natal chart, progressed charts, solar returns, transit lists etc. If you are an astrology student or just know the basics of astrology and planetary cycles, I can also explain the techniques as they apply to your chart during your reading. Readings run approximately 90 minutes. $335
A deposit is required for all first time clients.
Please schedule your reading early. There are no 'same-day' clients. All readings are usually scheduled two weeks or more in advance. Rush readings (scheduled five days or less in advance) include a surcharge of $60.
Emergency Readings - Need your reading right away? If at all possible, I may be able to give a reading on very short notice (24-48 hrs) for a surcharge of $125.
During your reading, I will look at an additional chart of someone about whom you'd like to get insight regarding romance, work health, a family issue etc. for an additional fee of $125. You must provide their birth data in advance of your session. If you'd like a complete relationship reading, see "Specialized Readings" below.
Update for Returning Clients
If you are a current client (already had a full private consultation with me), an update for the year ahead is $300.
Follow Up Reading
If you would like a follow-up reading to clarify any issues discussed in your personal reading, one may be scheduled within 45 days of your initial reading. A follow-up reading can be done over the phone as well and runs forty-five minutes to one hour. $115.
Additional Year Add-On
Though I suggest looking only one year forward, you may add a look at your transits for an extra "year ahead" to your reading for $160 per additional year.
Retainer - Contact me for specialized packages tailored to your needs over an extended period of time.
are identical to Personal readings, except they are done over the phone. They cover all areas stated above and I utilize the same techniques listed above for preparation. These readings require several hours preparation, and will run approximately 75 to 90 minutes. We can record your reading if you like as well. $335 (Payment required in advance.)
Horary Chart Readings
A horary chart is cast for the moment (hour= 'hor', thus 'horary') you ask an important question. This chart will reveal all the circumstances of your situation, and yield important information as to the outcome. For example, you could ask: Is this the right house to buy? or Will my boyfriend ever want to get married? or Where did I put the receipt? or Where is my daughter/cat/check book? or Which job should I take? Your horary chart will tell you! Keep track of the exact time you are mulling over this question and contact me. When I fully understand your question, I will draw up your horary chart. Once I examine the chart, we will go over it together by phone. Depending on the nature of the question, a horary chart reading take anywhere from 10 minutes to 30 minutes. $125. (Payment required in advance.)

Using a list or biography of key dates and events in your life (such as important life transitions, death of family member, change of occupation, etc.), I can rectify a chart for the time of your birth. There are a specific series of questions I have developed over the years to help me in this process. You will need to write or email me your answers as well as submit to me your 'key' dates and or time periods with events in your life. Rectifying a chart takes many hours of detailed work. It is my pleasure to endeavor on this task and recover the time of your birth. I have had tremendous success rectifying charts. Most astrologers refuse to do rectifications, or charge prohibitive fees for them, so no one can afford them because they are extremely time consuming. They can take weeks to research and prepare. I really find the work enjoyable and it is very gratifying to be able to provide this to my clients. The fee for a chart rectification and a copy of your rectified chart depends on whether you have an approximate birth time, or no idea of your birth time.
· Approximate Birth Time Known within 1-2 hr. time span - $450
· Completely Unknown Birth Time / Full Rectification - $800
· With Forecast - Add in an upcoming forecast based on your rectified chart, for a reduced fee of $295 (that's $40 off).
