Esther Frances has been practicing astrology for over 20 years. She was the astrologer in residence at the world renowned Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY from 1997-2005 and is the author of the best-selling book The Anatomy of Woodstock. Her practice and many endeavors have brought her to sunny Santa Cruz, CA where she is teaming up with Between The Worlds to use this ancient method to provide insight into the purpose of your life’s journey!
“With my Sun in the Eleventh House of group activities and friends, and my many years at Omega, I have experienced lots of workshops. One of my greatest joys is to be able to pass on what I’ve learned. My astrology readings include guided meditation and can be individually focused, or couples and family based. My services include, but are not exclusive to, natal charts, progression charts, solar return charts, relationship charts, family dynamics charts and baby birth charts.”
“We use myth and the wisdom of spiritual traditions throughout the planet as vehicles for greater integration and empowerment.”
Astrology Services (Prices include chart preparation)
Individual Readings, $150/hour
Natal Chart Interpretation: Based on your birth time, this chart contains your basic life script and mapping. It provides clues to your life purpose, challenges and talents. It is the basic matrix we use for insight into the timing of life cycles and events. (This is not a deterministic philosophy. We feel the birth time is chosen, either consciously or unconsciously, to be in keeping with the development of the soul. Therefore we do not believe “the planets made me do it!” Instead we see astrology as a vehicle for breaking out of victimization by owning and empowering the capacities for clarity that exist within each one of us).
Progression Chart Interpretation: Life is a process of change. Your progressed reading updates you and provides an even fuller sense of your present identity, purpose and possibilities. It expands and “fleshes out” the natal chart.
Solar Return Chart: This chart identifies the issues and themes that will be highlighted throughout the year, beginning with your birthday of each year. I’ve found them to be very accurate and therefore helpful in planning one’s personal “itinerary” for the year. A great birthday gift!
Couples Relationship Reading, $200/hour
Synastry, The Art of Chart Comparison: We compare two person charts with each other. Insights and understanding are gained which can bring greater happiness and compatibility to your relationship. Incompatible areas are exposed and one can get a sense of the “road ahead”… is it bumpy, smooth, varied. This is an excellent guide for romantic relationship dynamics as well as other one-on-one relationships such as parent-child, teacher-student, boss-employee, counselor-client, etc. This method helps us to identify individual needs and how each person seeks to fulfill those needs by interacting with the environment.
Composite Chart: This is one chart for the relationship. A relationship is a new entity having its own unique character and purpose. The composite chart describes the goals, purposes and dynamics of a relationship. This perspective gifts one with a fuller appreciation of the relationship’s true “reason for being.”
