Mother Earth is the center of the Universe and represents Us. Without her gift of abundance, we are unable to realize our potential. The Earth reflects back to us the medicine needed to heal. It is her gifts that allow us to experience the best versions of ourselves.


Astrology is a huge area of study that takes a lifetime to master. The above focuses on your sun sign only. Astrology goes far beyond your sun sign. All 12 Zodiac signs live within each of us. If you would like a more in depth consultation, I plan to offer skincare chart readings in the future, which will go further than sun sign astrology and into a more personalized regimen.
