HAND CRAFTED MAGICAL ARTIFACTS
your personal, Astrological Talisman
Awakening the ancient tradition of building Prayer Altars, we manifest our inner temples in real space for the practice of prayer, mediation and magic. Re-imagining these deep, still wells of our ancestry, we decorate our holy places with items precious to our practice and our requests. We bring *stones and plants * feathers and leaves * bones and hair * words and images*
With joy, I offer my gifts to your Holy Space, as custom designed astrological artwork, energizing your practice with prayers originating out of your birth moment - a moment so saturated with life force energy as to thrust your spirit into form - a living human creature.
The Star Talisman exhilarates the life force of the vessel through which the prayer arrives in this dimension (you), focusing the intent of your prayers, meditations and rituals. These qualities are especially beneficial when calling on your own inner fire, life force energy, personal beliefs, and innate healing potential.
Integrating my skill as a Visual Artist with the language of Astrology and the observations of Astronomy, together we infuse our reading with the Spirit of Nature herself, since we are after all, experiencing a visual, natural phenomena. From this place, we feel your Natal Chart through the portal of our imagination, as I paint for you an image with words. The living image we seek, of the skies above and below you, at the moment of your birth, guides our divine encounter with Spirit.
And from this numinous place in time where we both meet, together we receive wisdom and insight for the questions you are exploring.
I offer 30, 60, and 90 minute Astrological Readings in person as well as virtually, via Skype, Facetime or telephone.
RE-ENVISIONING OUR PLACE AMONG THE STARS
Celestial Rewilding Course
Celestial Rewilding is a thirteen month course devoted to teaching you how to read your Natal Chart, alongside systematic observations of the Night Sky and current Planetary Dynamics.
This study brings together the art of Astrology and the observations of Astronomy, re-orienting ourselves to Nature’s elegant patterns unfolding around us endlessly.
With these observations and the knowledge they bestow upon us, we learn to pray again.
In this place, we actively engage our own, dynamic lives in harmonious cooperation with the Song of the Spheres, and the grand and glorious influences they offer us in full potency, when apprehended with wisdom and understanding.

REWILDING and conservation biology
Rewilding is a large scale, intervention process of restoring ecosystems back to their endemic, native state, by re-introducing native plants and animals and specifically, top predators. Though I could scarcerly have predicted at the time, my personal experience with this effort, though very small and very strange, became the centered heart of my own Artistic and Astrological work in the world.
A PERSONAL TALISMAN
Your entrance into this program begins with a custom crafted Star Talisman, your personal Astrological Chart as a magical artifact, drawn with reference quality accuracy, and planetary aspects stitched in silken thread. Upon completion of the craft, I smudge your Talisman with the holy smoke of hand gathered aromatic plants, and then released it to you, for use in your prayers, meditations and rituals.
In each of the 13 Educational Invocations, of the Celestial Rewilding Course, we use illustrations like this one to visually interpret and understand the observed patterns Astrology relies upon, and to organize those patterns, inherent in nature, into human language. Because Astrology is first a visual phenomena, we begin with nature herself, to receive knowledge and insight for our lives.
For our first meeting, we spend 2 hours together in a synergistic experience of Astrological Patterns with Observational Astronomy, wherein we perceive together, Inspired Mystical Insight for your life. In our 12 meetings following, we explore the celestial dynamics of each of the planets, and luminaries: Sun, Mercury, Venus, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, the asteroid/planetoid Chiron, and the North and South Nodes of the Moon.
Fine Art Commissions
It is my greatest pleasure in this life to offer you my imagination, manifested in visual collaboration with you, for the Custom Fine Art you desire for your collection. My work spans from tiny paintings to full murals and anything in between, and it is my great joy to travel anywhere in the world to paint for you live, on canvases, walls, and buildings!
