Astro-readings are generally based on outer planet transits and secondary progressions. Cost for new clients starts at $185, and that may vary significantly depending on what’s being asked. Topics may cover romantic relationships, psychological or spiritual issues, career, health, relocation, parent-child relations, and personal finances. Our interaction will include as much astrologese as you're comfortable with, though activated natal dynamics are generally discussed. 

Format: I’ve tried a variety of formats over the years, and the current process begins with your email request. After you’ve sent me your exact birth data and we’ve settled the fee, I’ll need some brief background info on yourself (to put the planets in context), and the issues you’re interested in discussing. Then I’ll study your chart for 2-3 days (schedule allowing) and report back with a list of talking points. We can continue by discussing these itemized details of your chart, plus the current and projected conditions. This may be done as a conversation through email (where you’ll have the record), over the phone, or via Skype.

Tools: As a professional astrologer for the last twenty-five years, I've found a number of useful, holistic techniques for chart interpretation, gleaned from my library of over 600 astrology texts. Two analytical tools that I find particularly helpful, and that not a lot of astrologers are using yet, are asteroids and the lunar nodes. Asteroids are feminine archetypes, and especially useful in determining relationship dynamics, career development, and health issues. The lunar nodes offer a practical expression of esoteric astrology, and clearly illuminate one's path toward the "higher self" by offering a deeper sense of personal fulfillment. Lately, I've also been using Black Moon Lilith.

What clients have to say:

"I really want to thank you for the insight you gave me as it relates to my chart. Its really helping me to see my life differently at this point in my life now. Thanks so much. I'm letting other people know about your service."

"An unexpected thing has happened and it has made me reflect on your 
forecasting of the conjunction of my progressed Venus and my Sun....
This man really loves me and time was the test that proved it. I have been in love twice before, but nothing that had such a foundation and connection on so many levels."

"As you predicted, the tension has really dissipated. I'm sleeping like a baby again, and this is after struggling with insomnia for a year. I just finally decided that, for now, I will have to sleep alone... Thank you again for another astute reading of my situation."

"Wow! Michael, right on! Your insights have been INVALUABLE so far! You're amazing. Thanks, again." 

"Thank you for the clarification of my partnership issues. In fact I was just obsessing why I've been independent and alone/somewhat lonely most of my life. I had not digested that Vesta conjunct my Moon quincunx Mars/Mercury/Sun stellium would be such a large influence in my life."

"This is some powerful insight for me and makes me realize that I should relax about this while still being true to my well-being, as you say. It's very easy to only think about what I want and think I deserve and forget that lessons and higher plans are in the works." 

"Your analysis is very accurate and reads like the story of my life. It is somewhat comforting to understand the influence yet someone worrisome when there are aspects that I would prefer to change."

"You are correct that I have looked into meditation. I was studying mindfulness meditation and Buddhism.... It has been one of the keys with dealing with my anger over the past two years."

"It is good to hear that my chart supports a mate relationship with someone from a different culture. I have always told myself that it would be too much work. At this point, I am feeling more optimistic about it all."

"Again, thank you for such an in-depth and useful reading. It is the first time that I have had a reading and felt complete after it. What I mean is that I do not have lingering questions. I feel I understand and that I am ready to move forward. I want to acknowledge your excellence and I wish you the best." 

"Thank you for such a splendid analysis of my chart and those who are involved with me......You have such a big picture view and a remarkable ability to communicate your knowledge. I especially enjoyed your analysis of Chiron and the other asteroids.  Not many people understand them."

I appreciate all you have done for me. If you do teach and online class or mentorship program, please let me know. I would love to have a teacher and a support group to go over charts for a couple of hours one night a week through Skype. 

I love the way you can put together the asteroids, planets, Eris, BML, etc. So much thorough detail. I am really appreciating this!!!

You were spot on with the current progressions and transits. Interested to see how the relocation chart works. Much appreciated. I'm a Big Fan.

Natal and Asteroid Reports 

Comprehensive natal interpretations reports can be emailed to you individually, or in tandem with personal readings. These reports discuss the traditional planets in their respective signs, houses, and in aspect to each other, along with the Ascendant and Midheaven. They run about 35-40 pages long, and the cost is $25. For a sample professional natal report, here's a look at Tiger Woods' Natal Report

I've found that asteroids, especially the first 
four (Ceres, Vesta, Juno, and Pallas), offer much more interpretive and forecasting information than is available by using the traditional planets. Asteroids are particularly important in relationship issues. You may request an Asteroid Report, which is about 40-45 pages long, and follow-up discussion to tie them altogether with your current situation. The reports can be purchased individually for $25. Click here for a sample report on Angelina Jolie.
Rectification

If you don't know what time you were born, chart rectification is possible and costs $100 to $200, depending on the range of possible birth times. You provide a brief list of important dates in your life, and the transits and progressions during these events will help back-engineer your chart. The correct Ascendant and Midheaven will be active during the life's milestones, which gives the birth time.

One client, with an extensive astrology background, was having some problems with rectifying her own chart. We shifted the house system from Koch to Placidus, and then when we found the right birth time, everything fell into place. She writes:

"Yippee!!!!  I'm over the MOON with this!  You found the answer to many long tedious years of searching.  You'll never know how many nights I spent constructing charts the old way with logs!!!  I have a file cabinet full of yellowed work, natal, progressed for events, tertiary (I forget how to do that one, but have Edward Lyndoe's book), transits, solar returns, etc."
ACG Maps and Relocation Charts

Many astrologers offer ACG maps as a way of finding the best place for you to live. What they don't tell you, and perhaps don't know, is that the ACG map is a primitive tool for knowing the astrological influences at a particular location.

Your natal horoscope relocated to a place of interest tells you planets that are near the four angles (as the ACG map does), as well as planets AND asteroids that are aspecting the four angles (which ACG maps don't do). 

Also, the relocated horoscope can be progressed to put the most prominent influences in time.
