Whether you want to understand how to read your own chart or learn to read the charts of others, with 25 + years of experience, I can teach you the language of astrology, providing a set of tools for enriching your life and connecting with Spirit. The more we know ourselves, the freer we become as individuals. Our deepest soul complexes always impede our vision, however, the study of astrology allows insight and understanding of the universe and of ourselves.

I am an intuitive, Jungian-based astrologer. A life-long yoga practitioner, I presently run a yoga nonprofit. Daily meditation is essential to me. I had my astrology chart done on a whim in the early 90's and immediately became enthralled with the art. I began my daily blog, featuring Street Ar

She's excited and loves it so now I want that too!
Alexandra
Ainslie is equally patient and dynamic in her teaching style. Moreover, the breathe of her astrology knowledge is unparalleled, and she effortlessly imparts a thorough knowledge of the subject in terms that are clear and concise. After my own lessons, I would enthusiastically recommend Ainslie to any student interested in gaining a comprehensive understanding of astrology.
Antonia
Ainslie has given me two astrology readings.. both of which have given me a deeper understanding of astrology and myself. She is meticulous with her work and very patient while explaining all the information she gives, you can clearly see this in her weekly blogs. What I loved most about Ainslie readings is that you really feel how passionate she is about Astrology and this makes the experience so much more meaningful and fun! Thank you Ainslie!

Victoria was professional, on time, considerate and very complimentary as a teacher. Look forward to more sewing lessons!
Veronica
Victoria was very knowledgable and friendly. She guided my daughter and I through the process of understanding the basics of starting a sewing project. We learned how to use a pattern to make a pair of pants and as a result discovered what works and what doesn't.

We were excited to have someone who understood our needs and was able to answer all of our questions.

Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic.

To be honest, I was a little afraid to book lessons online with all the scammers out there. But she is wonderful and I know I'm going to want more lessons with her. I could finally make the sewing project I want to make knowing that I have her there for assistance. Thank you SO much Dawn!! I'm looking forward to our next class."

"AWESOME I so enjoy working with Karen! In advance of today’s lesson, we coordinated re work on a summer shawl Project. We both thought a summer shawl addressing those summer air conditioned restaurants was a good project for folks like me that travel a bunch and need take along projects. With Karen’s guidance in mind, I bought gthe yarn. Then Karen showed me 6-9 different shawls she’s made so I could pick target shawl pattern that wasn’t above my ability and appealed to me. I’m now on my way; 3+Rows in and feeling confident of noteworthy progress til next session."
