Soul Contract Astrology
I am a counselling astrologer who specialises in aligning you with your soul path.
During a session we will uncover the psycho-spiritual-emotional dynamics that you are working on in your life. Astrology continues to teach me just how very individual we all are and how we all have different things to look at and work on. There are always multiple ways the chart can play out. When we are unconscious the dynamics express as shadow/ fate and when we are conscious we can use them to facilitate and effectively navigate our individual expression on planet earth.
I'm also able to see which particular aspects of your chart are up at the moment for you.
It's very typical to feel more grounded in yourself after a session. We typically compare ourselves to others and astrology profoundly facilitates an understanding of the individual self that will be recognisable and healing.
I've been studying astrology since i was 15 years old and was mentored into my role as a professional astrologer by the fabulous and deeply missed Dawn Bodrogi of The Inner Wheel.
I am able to consult from Johannesburg in person or via Skype. I occasionally consult in person from Durban.
For a reading I will need the date, time and location of your birth. I like to become familiar with the chart over a few days. Ideally get your details to me a week prior to your appointment.
One of my favourite areas of astrology is synastry, which is the astrology of relationship dynamics and how we light each other up. You need to supply the birth details of both people. In depth synastry often takes longer, the extra time is charged pro rata. One or both partners can be present.
All sessions are recorded, please bring a USB drive if you are coming to me in Johannesburg.
My rate is $55 per hour and sessions are usually between 1 and 1.5 hours long. Please enquire for my SA rates.
I am also able to talk about whatever deep or disturbing things you have on your plate at the moment. I am experienced at doing shadow work. If you are stuck with something, this is a good place to get unstuck. I can draw on many things from to simple tools to help bring unconscious aspects into conscious awareness, to meditation techniques, to astrology, to dream interpretation, to mythology, to extracting false beliefs that are keeping you stuck. Through experience I agree wholeheartedly with Jung that much of the shadow is golden! We can use astrology to look at the issue or not, as you wish.
I've been guided by a number of profound teachers for many years and been a student of Leslie Temple-Thurston of CoreLight for more than 10.
Please contact me so we can set up a time.
That was a wonderful session. So much resonated with me. I love that your method of interpretation + reading is also teaching. I look forward to occasions that bring us together in the future. ~ Nina
I feel less weird and more like I can just be myself after that ~ Jen
"Barbara is one of the wisest and most centered people I have ever met. I was very depressed and anxious when she came into my life. Without hesitation she offered unconditional help with an open heart and assisted me in embracing my dualities, shift negatives to positives and surrender to each moment, by becoming a witness to my own life. Thank you dear Barbara! Love Lira"
Barbara is an exuberant character very well learned in astrology and meditation practices. I enjoy getting enlightening astrology chart readings from her as it is very informative and focuses on the positive changes one must make in one's life. As opposed to previous readings I've had that seems to try and capitalize on maintaining a mystery to ensure multiple unnecessary readings and not explaining what certain things mean to keep you coming back to reveal more details, Barbara gets to the point, follows through in detail and intuitively interprets your chart making sure you understand everything along the way explaining astrology jargon so that one can understand how to interpret the chart. What was also nice is that she could go to future astrological events in your reading to give one a heads up on what to expect in the following years, whereas other astrological readings I've had only focus on your birth chart at present and what needs to change now.
As for the meditation sessions i quite enjoy the lessons we get in terms of the eastern philosophy behind meditation but also approaching it from many angles such as Jungian psychology etc. She is a great facilitator and guide, able to guide meditation using many different approaches and techniques. I myself struggle to focus during meditation and often slip into a trance instead or dream state. Barbara helped me to focus again and clear my over active mind.
As for future 'spiritual work' Im looking forward to working with her in the focusing intentions on the issues plaguing our world. If we can expand the meditation group beyond our immediate area and collectively work on the consciousness of mankind we can change our current predicaments and guide a more positive change in the world. - Francois
