Frequently asked questions
Does Astrology predict the future?
Do I need to know what time I was born?
It is a very important piece when casting the birth chart as it sets up the Ascendent (Rising sign) as well as placement of all the planets. A general reading can still be done with no birth time however it will lack many details that you can get from knowing your birth time.
Is it ok to do a reading about someone else?
We can look at your compatibility needs, responsibility, and ideas for partnerships, relationships, care without looking at someone else's information directly. It is not ok to do a reading on someone who has not given their permission. This is an invasion of privacy, personal space and is unethical. Schedule a time if you want to look at your role in a dynamic.
Is Mercury Retrograde bad?
No mercury retrograde is not bad. All the planets in the sky will have an apparent movement of retrograde motion at some point in the year. Retrograde motion represents a period of inter-reflection, slowing down and integration. We don't have to believe the scary or worrisome language about it. Slowing down our communications can be a good thing too. My Patreon Group is a great community for understanding and discussions about these kinds of things and more.
What is a Rising Sign?
How many types of Astrology are there?
When it comes to the types of astrology used today, there are three major forms: Western (Tropical), Vedic, and Chinese. However there are over 80 lesser know styles of Astrology. I use Western Astrology with the Tropical Zodiac. To learn more, contact me for classes and mentorship.

Can Astrology help make career decisions?
Yes it can. By looking at the movement of the planets in the sky compared to your chart we can see if and when movement will happen in a career. It may be time to wait, to leave, or advance your education for further career growth, take a risk, create or release a partnership. Let's talk about it. I also make decisions in my own business by my chart. I live it, it works.
Can Astrology tell me about my health?
Does Astrology talk about mental health?
Yes it does, mental health and illness. It can guide and help us understand the challenges and strengths. It is not a substitute for traditional care. Please asses and be holistically responsible for yourself and your loved ones and receive all the supports available.
Can Astrology predict death?
It can not. There are many indicators that can show sudden changes or long-term illness, however death is like any other transit to the natal chart. For the most part it simply looks like another transit. Be wary of interpretations that predict death or practitioners that are willing to do this for you. Take good care. ~ In kindness, Dorothy
Is Astrology a religion?
How can Astrology guide my spiritual growth?
GOOD QUESTION! There are houses that are about spirituality, but that is not astrology and spiritual growth. What does astrology represent to you in your practices? Why are you drawn to it? What do you know about it or wonder about it in other cultures or your family culture? See where I'm going with this? I will explore this very personal question with you if you like. Classes and communities about astrology, independent reading about history, cultures, mythology, and more can be fascinating Contact me if I can support you.
