I am currently not scheduling or doing readings...please check back later.
Are you looking for a "Reading"? Scroll to bottom of this page to find out how to set up a reading--I can usually schedule a reading within a week. I focus both on the birth chart and your current situation with the transit and progressed charts. I do readings by phone, and skype, and if you ask, they can be recorded to an Mp3 file. Our session is between 60-90 minutes long. Follow up counseling sessions are available as well. Details at bottom of this page.
If you are curious about understanding your chart and how I do a reading, then check out my book: "North Node Astrology; Rediscovering
Your Life Direction and Soul Purpose" or
"Saturn Returns~The Private Papers of a
Reluctant Astrologer" Both available through www.amazon.com in paperback and Kindle.
"Saturn Returns: The Private Papers of A Reluctant Astrologer" is now available through amazon.com. Reviews and "Look Inside the Book" allows you to browse...available in paperback or kindle. If you know a little astrology and would like to learn more, this book might be for you. The first part of the book is an astrological novel/memoir, and the second part is the non-fiction section where you can look up your Saturn placement by sign and house, and also read in depth about the "returns."
Lots of great insights here especially if you're into your First Saturn Return around the age of 29, or the Second Saturn Return around the age of 59. Learn astrology as you read about the life of an astrologer,who is scared by her own "predictions".

If you are looking for astrological guidance and can't afford a personal "reading" just now, I suggest reading: "North Node Astrology: Re-Discovering Your Life Direction and Soul Purpose" (See below) )It also might be worthwhile for you to read this before having a personal session with me as well, although not mandatory!) Anyway, this book will help you understand your life direction, your transits, get a better understanding of your astrological chart, and it has charts and full descriptions of the Nodes and how to understand them. You can use the book to better understand your Saturn Returns, Uranus Opposition, Chiron Return, Pluto transits, and more. It's all of what I do in a "reading" and you may be able to do it for yourself.
"North Node Astrology;
Rediscovering Your Life Direction and Soul Purpose"

Book Review from "Mountain Astrologer"
"Although astrologically oriented, this book is written for all readers who are looking to better understand their life direction and soul purpose. Endorsed by Jungian author Jim Hollis and evolutionary astrologer, Steven Forrest, this book is a reference guide as well as a collection of heart-felt stories that inspire a wider understanding of astrology and depth psychology.
By using the simple chart/table based on your day and year of birth, you'll be able to look up your Nodes, as well as those of your friends, partners, and family, in order to more deeply understand the psycho-spiritual challenges and opportunities embedded in the chart. Understanding the Nodes and life passages (transits) will inspire a more compassionate view of relationships, marriage, menopause, as well as the alchemy of desire."
Why not become the "author" of your own life?
Carl Jung once said: "When an inner situation is not made conscious,
it happens outside as fate."
Why not bring a little more consciousness
into your life and become your own "author-ity?"
Perhaps those words promise too much, yet an astrology reading offers unique insights into relationships, career, and the timing of events--it helps you make better choices. It enables you to feel that you have a little more control of your life and destiny--and it especially helps when you're feeling just plain stuck.
I specialize in helping you understand your life direction, soul purpose and relationships issues by examining your birth, transit and progressed charts, and especially by looking at the unconscious dynamics that are embedded within the North and South Nodes. By translating Jungian astrology and Jungian psychology into plain English, you'll find insights that can be helpful for you now. Depth psychology and this type of "evolutionary" astrology goes deeper than sun sign astrology.

~Are you "just working" or are you doing your life's work?
Let's look at the North and South Node for deeper clues.
~Are you questioning your current partnership or wondering when a new relationships will come into your life?
Let's look at your progressed chart or do a relationship comparison chart.
~Are you restless, anxious, or feeling 'stuck' and don't know why?
Let's look at your transits: You could be experiencing the Saturn Return or the Uranus Opposition.
"I believe that the astrological chart is a profoundly direct means for accessing insight and wisdom because it was chosen by your Soul before birth. As an evolutionary astrologer, I believe that karma, grace, fate, and free will all weave together into an intricate tapestry, and that the chart reveals profound clues about the direction your Soul yearns to go towards, and provides insights into the timing of significant events.
Although it is an esoteric truth that character equals fate, we are blessed with the free will to create our own character and therefore our own destiny.
"Your menopause article should be available in every doctor's clinic in the world. Gosh, how many women would that help - come to think of it, maybe even a few men!"

Here's a review of it by a British astrologer in the amazon.UK kindle edition:
" A box of delights for sudents of astrology and lover of romantic fiction alike; Elizabeth Spring's likeable and very human astrologer, Isabelle, leads us through a series of richly symbolic scenarios in the lushest of locations as she seeks to resolve the challenges of her secon 'Saturn Return." Laced with beautiful quotations, a surprising revelation, and, as befits a Saturn Return well worked, a satisfactory conclusion. Pour yourself a cup of something delicious, curl up in a comfy chair and enjoy!" Lin Cook Penzance, Cornwall, England.
