Through no fault of my own, I was introduced to the world of astrology back in late 1969. I couldn’t really say I was a non believer as I was consciously unaware of its existence up to that point. A friend pulled out this book “The Complete Astrologer” and proceeded to do the math and read me various passages from the book. As we proceeded my jaw dropped lower and lower at the seeming accuracy of those words.
Forward 51 years and a lot of living substance has transpired to allow for a most unique flavor of just how this tool is going to be flowing through the vehicle known as Jeff. And I specifically paint the picture of the flow through of energy as to how this tool functions when sitting down to consider just what the image of the astrological information in front of me in any moment is calling on the universe to reveal. I just recently returned from a workshop with Steven Forrest after attaining a Masters Level in Evolutionary Astrology Certification from him. Many folks including other professional astrologers have asked me where I am getting my insight from and I have to respond that I just have to get out of the way and let it happen and am not always sure what it is that spawns the words that leap off my tongue. But I have grown to trust this seemingly outer/inner source as has been verified by the many folks who have thanked me for being willing to spend time with them in this type of consideration.
Oh, did I mention that I have been at this awhile? In pondering life’s many issues which have been brought for consideration by clients over the years I have to admit that the learning process that is stimulated in each chart reading occurs not only for the client but for my own broader reach into the infinite variety we each bring for one another to grasp. It is in this light that we are each invited to consider how best to portray and release through our life expression the opportunities that are the potential revealed in our chart in this and each incarnation we have traversed. For a further look into this astrological archetype see the writing astrology (The Muse is Loose) page. Might I as well suggest my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Astroshapeshifter/ There I post recent astrological considerations more often.
During the last quite a number of years the Evolutionary avenue and use of the astrological tool has found its way being shuffled within the astrological matrix of how I am inclined to be inspired as I reach deep within each person’s being and ask pointed questions about their particular choices that have gotten them to where they are. The astrological consultation is a process of conversation wherein you as the client, myself as the astrologer, and many factors of the universal whole sit together to query our motivation.
There are many avenues opened through the use of this tool and many ways to apply what we are brought to consider. I have listed a few of the more popular ones on the Services page. There are other astrological avenues I delve into but draw on only when I see the need.
I have focalized a weekly Astrology group for the past 16 years in Port Townsend, Washington on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30 pm. The 3rd Wednesday of each month I presented a lively monthly astrological look ahead for the public at Pippa’s Real Tea, 626 Water St. Port Townsend. From 5:00 – 6:30 pm. This came to an end when the business changed hands in January of 2020. I now am dipping into offering these same monthly considerations to YouTube as The Lively Astrologer: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCK2W2sX8XC8hdJPXF5nhJrQ

Shamanic technique. Over the past many years I have ventured into the realms of the teachers from the distant past. No one is clear as to when exactly shamanism took hold within the tribal lifestyle, but at least 100,000 years ago what was revealed is that as a human we had some unique capabilities of accessing realms of insight that have always been available to us to provide answers on a variety of matters relevant to survival. Things as diverse as where one might locate food sources, what might be the appropriate healing techniques required at any one time, were there changing conditions in the climate that would necessitate relocating, determining if the story being offered by another is coming from a true source?
How this was and is accomplished is where the story gets interesting. Each of us has a built in capacity to access realms of what can be referred to as non-ordinary reality. It has been quite a few years (centuries, millennia) since the general populace has been offered opportunity to contemplate such matters. More often than not this is information that has been deliberately kept from public view by our modern culture. However, in the past, and even in some of the indigenous modern cultures, it was recognized when someone might have a leaning in this direction, by those who already operated within these realms, and an invitation would be offered to undertake the training necessary to become proficient with this expanded set of tools. This is Initiation.
This avenue has led to an expansion in the variety of directions that can be drawn upon as we sit down together to consider if there might be a more appropriate opportunity to ponder for continuing forth on our life trajectory. See writing (Down the Rabbit Hole) page for more consideration to ponder… Also checking out my facebook page might intrigue you. https://www.facebook.com/Astroshapeshifter/[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
