Working with JayP

 

Interested in On-Going Support Consultations

Let's work together!

I believe that building a relationship with an astrologer can be a powerful way to learn about the self, to best be prepared for the energies that are heading our way and to help us understand others. When working with a client, I prefer to do a First-Time Consultation (available to book under the tab "Book Me"). Doing this initial work helps me to get to know you better and understand your goals and how I can assist you. My clients prefer to get a deeper knowing of their chart rather than a quick fly-by-night interpretation.

After the initial consultation, I am here for you and at a half-priced rate. We can choose to keep working with the natal chart (the chart of your birth), or we can switch it up and talk about the year ahead and how to best utilize those opportunities. I am also available for a whole menu of chart types and offerings (you can view all chart types under "Book Me")

Charts I offer for my clients:

  • Natal Chart Consultation
  • Year Ahead Transit Report Consultation
  • Vocational Consultation
  • Followup Astro Aid on topics of your choice
  • Astro-Activism: Action and Self-Care Consultation
  • Why Goddess, Why? Mini Consultations
  • What Kind of Astrologer Am I? Practitioner Assistance 
  • Any chart types open to the public

 

Interested in One-Time Support Consultations

While I prefer on-going client relationships, the public can book me for one-time support for the following chart consultations:

  • Lil' Charts: Children's Consultations
  • College Chart Consultations
  • Astrological Timing Charts
  • Astro-Activism: Action and Self-Care Consultation
  • What Kind of Astrologer Am I? Practitioner Assistance 
  • Any teaching, business or additional service

 

Consultation Style and Ethics

In consultation with a client, I try to find the highest expression of their true self and let them know that. With a lot of earth signs myself, I aim to give practical tools and information you can use, concrete material. Also, with my interests lying in remediation and physical astrology, I hope to give a positive expression of archetypal energies or transits you may be going through as well as ways to support health goals to bring your body back into alignment.  

As a Mercurial person, I also love to give clients recommendations on books, lectures, practitioners to see, additional information to seek out if they would like. I love connecting my clients with what they might need after the visit to enrich their experience.

With my studies in herbal medicine, nutrition and health, plus magical training at the Blue Iris Mystery School, I may use tools I've learned from my studies here in the consultation. Nothing is given without first asking permission.

 

a word about the use of language

In my work with the Queer Astrology movement out of Oakland, I'm consciously working at my use of inclusionary language as well as regularly doing personal work around checking my own bias' and assumptions and work to operate from a neutral place. To be clear, Queer Astrology is not limited to "gay", but rather looking at the language we use that excludes the experiences of people of colour, people outside of hetero-normative relationship structures, people who have a disability, people who are trans, gender queer, non-binary, etc. I also practice body-positivity, sex-positivity (although my Virgo-rising self may blush), encourage free gender expression in astrological understanding and remove gendered, binary and unnecessary language often forced upon signs and planets. This is my commitment to you. 

In addition to this, in consultation, I speak about the chart objectively, using language like "this chart might suggest--", or "this chart might want--" rather than "you are like this", "you should change this". As an astrologer, my job is to describe energies and behaviors, without judgement and never without the element of free will.

 

a word about confidentiality

Often the clients I see are associated in communities that we may both have a hand in. I want you to know that all details discussed in our consultation will be kept confidential from others. This also includes if we run into each other outside of the office, I won't bring up details about your chart. I don't even share with anyone that you've come to see me. That's your business, not mine.

 

a word about linage

Just as the field of Biology has many branches of research and study, Astrology has many different branches as well. Simply stated, my theoretical orientation lies within an eclectic practice that includes an emphasis on health, wellness, physical astrology, Hellenistic astrology, herbalism and remediation. While my practice is grounded in ancient principles, I do weave this into our modern and humanistic understanding of the chart.  Astrology has shown itself to be a useful tool to help us understand not only ourselves with an incredible amount of depth and precision in mental or behavioral capacities, and not only how to understand our physical bodies, but it also gives vision into and illuminates our life's path, presenting us with clues to those mysteries, clues to the reasons why we are here and why we act and do the things that we do. We are all special. We are all unique, and astrology helps to validate this completely. 

More advanced clients may delight in the fact that I DO NOT practice the Astrological 12-Letter alphabet which could say, as an example, that the 12th House is equalled to the sign of Pisces is equalled to the planet Neptune. Intended as a beginners teaching-tool, it's dangerous when delineating a chart for a client. Talk about your shitty astro! Furthermore, after careful deliberation, I use the whole sign house system.
