Cut through the confusion and get to know your Rising Sign

Getting into your birth chart is really fun! Your chart is the blueprint for this life journey– and it contains a ton of information about you. The insights often validate and illuminate your lived experience, and there is something really satisfying about that. 

But it’s hard to get there without a guide. When you first start to get to know your birth chart, you soon find out that the birth chart contains a level of detail that can quickly become overwhelming. Thing A means this, Thing B means that, Thing C means that… and so on until your eyes glaze over and your brain turns to mush. If this sounds like you, you’re not alone!

Beginner-Friendly Lessons

This 8-phase mini-course slows it all down so you can focus on this one piece of the birth chart– and get to know it well. We’ll break down the interpretation to make it simple, digestible, and understandable.

You’ll be guided to examine your rising sign from a few different angles so that you get a deeper and broader view of this super-important part of your birth chart. And maybe you’ll pick up some valuable nuggets about yourself in the process.

I’ll be honest with you. The Zodiac sign rising on the eastern horizon at the moment of birth, the ascendant, the rising sign. Whatever you want to call it. This was one of the last pieces of the chart that really fell into place for me. 

I mean, I knew the keywords: 

  • Your “mask”– mannerisms and style 
  • Your identity 
  • The way you present yourself 
  • The “you” people see when they first meet you 

But I still didn’t totally feel like I “got” the meaning of the rising sign. For a long time. My messy “farmer chic” aesthetic and love for salty language never totally fit the grace, poise, and neat appearance that my Libra rising is supposed to represent. My deeper sense told me there had to be more to it. 

I have a better handle on it now. That’s why I created this 10-day beginner-level course all about it. You’ll get full access to the video and text lessons, access to me via the course messaging system, and a printable or fillable PDF study guide.

If you're a complete newcomer to astrology, I've got you! The course starts with phase 1: “How to find your Rising Sign.” My goal is to make the learning curve as painless as possible for you. 

And I've tried to set you up for rich and rewarding discoveries that will be worth your time and effort.

Sometimes I wish I could go back to the 1990s and discover astrology again. I remember being a new student, looking up my sign placements and aspects for the first time, finding all of these wonderful nuggets of truth and validation.

The best feeling is when the truth-nuggets start to come together and form a picture that reveals even deeper truths. The chart comes to life… and the light turns on.

I love that.

I help people who are excited about astrology take their knowledge and skills to the next level.

I also practice medical astrology and nutrition therapy to help individuals identify and address deeper issues and meanings impacting their health.
