“Cobalt Flight” by Shannon Troxler
Find your way with a star map
Welcome to my offerings for various types of astrological readings, or maps, as I like to call them, being a cartographer at heart. Like a map, a reading can help you define the territory you inhabit or help you find your way. Here are a few important things to understand about how one of my readings might be of benefit to you and your beloveds.
It’s important to understand that the planets don’t cause things to happen in your life — nothing is fated in my opinion — but there is clearly a magnificent, mysterious synchronistic mirroring happening between planetary events occurring in the heavens with events unfolding in our lives on Earth. “As Above, so Below” is the spiritual adage to describe this connection. No other discipline offers the kind of insight that they ancient discipline of astrology does.
We are each unique and we inhabit the world uniquely. My job is to help you appreciate and celebrate that truth.
We are each unique and we inhabit the world uniquely. My job is to help you appreciate and celebrate that truth. My motto is “Be Yourself” which should be easy but often isn’t given cultural conditioning and ancestral patterning. Astrological charts function like maps and offer vast amounts of information about oneself and one’s orientation to the larger world. These star maps will help you understand your personal energies, your creative callings as well as the ways you interact with others in relationships. An astrological chart also functions as a map of time. With interpretive techniques like transits and progressions, you will learn about the natural unfolding timing unique to you. This information provides context and insight regarding decision-making and patience which can be helpful on your journey through life.
I have originated a unique way of reading a chart using the sidereal astronomical alignments in combination with some elements of the tropical zodiac. The tropical chart can identify patterns linked to unconscious conditioning, ancestor and lineage issues that often manifest as unhealthy habits and ruts or stale modes of being you are ready to shed. The sidereal map mirrors one’s more expansive evolving being, your true nature as designed by nature. In my readings, I bridge these two levels of information helping you see what you are ready to release and what you want to embrace in order to live a healthy, happier, more fully-engaged life.
Thank you for the gift of allowing me to assist you in appreciating wondrous YOU via this wise, infinite language of astronomical astrology. A reading of your personal map is truly a gift that will last a lifetime.
Choose a Reading
To begin our work together, please gather the birth data that includes your current name, birthday, time of birth and place of birth. I can do a reading if you don’t have a birth time. I offer periodic discounts so please sign up for my Star Signposts to receive information about those as well as my weekly planetary predictions.
If we are able to meet in person, I will need your birth information and we will connect via phone or email to set up a time to meet. Our sessions are generally an hour and a half to two hours. I will record our conversation and you will receive a link to download the reading along with the star chart maps and a CD, if you want one.
Long Distance Readings
I have a different approach as to how I do my readings if we are not able to meet in person. I work as an intuitive astrologer, and due to my sensitive hearing, I prefer not to do the first-time Natal Map over the phone. When I sit down to do your reading this way, I attune to what I call your “guidance team” which feels like your personal assortment of ancestors, angels, guides and animals. So even though I am not in your physical presence, I am deeply guided by what what I see in your map as well as what I receive from your helpful spirit friends. It is like I am receiving a download from your essential Self and seek to translate that information as clearly. I assure you, you will get the most thorough reading this way! I will send a link to download the readings and mail off the star maps and CD, if you want one. If you have questions, we can have an email exchange or initial phone conversation before I do your reading, or we can speak after you listen to the recording a few times to address any questions.
Once I have done your Natal Map, I can then work with you over the phone. or via other visual forums, for a Natal Map Update, shorter tune-ups about specific questions, longer counseling sessions and personal mentoring.
Timing & Payment
I will get the reading to you within 2-3 weeks of receiving payment. If you have an emergency, I will finish the reading within one week.
I accept credit or debit card payments via PayPal. Please email me if you want to pay by check.
