For those of us that study astrology with intention and daily practice, it might come natural to wonder what a ~$20 reading could do for us. Other readings around that price have left me feeling a little disappointed; I wasn’t presented with a reading that was outside of what I knew. That was not at all the case with Chris’s reading. Their own take on each planet’s placement was refreshing, thought provoking, and just what I needed to hear. Unlike other astrologers, Chris also reads the energies around the reading. They “ground” the readings in an energy, I believe I heard them say. That truly makes the difference. While Chris could have surely gone on and on about each placement, they picked just what I needed to hear at the moment of my reading. Whatever was guiding them, it was spot on. Not only that, but they weaved the placements together. There was no stand alone reading of my Leo Moon, for example. They read my Leo Moon in conversation with my other planets/placements/houses. That integration of the astrological information is something I struggle with, so not only did I receive a big-picture view of my chart, but I also learned a great deal in regards to how a chart could be read.
The ten pages of their report read smoothly and flowed well, with the exception of an occasional typo and mismatched sign with a planet. The language is accessible, relatable, and feels very personal–as if they were there with you speaking the report to you. Lastly, the tarot card reading was also very well done. I got chills reading it and felt sure of Chris’s magic. Like I could trust it. There was no dissonance between the natal chart reading, the reading of my current transits, and the tarot. It felt like one cohesive piece that came to me exactly when I needed it.
I’m sure Chris knows they could charge more for their excellent service, so it’s really inspiring to see a financially accessible astrologer out there.
I definitely plan on contracting Chris again for more transit and tarot card readings. I would recommend this service to both beginners of astrology and seasoned folk. Five out of five Mercurys stationing direct.
