The Stars Were Created for Our Sake

 Gemara Brachot 32b says:

"But Zion said, The Lord hath forsaken me, and the Lord hath forgotten me. Is not forsaken the same as forgotten? Resh Lakish said: The community of Israel said before the Holy One, blessed be He: Sovereign of the Universe, when a man takes a second wife after his first, he still remembers the deeds of the first. Thou hast both forsaken and forgotten me! The Holy One, blessed be He, answered her: My daughter, twelve constellations have I created in the firmament, and for each constellation have I created thirty hosts, and for each host I have created thirty legions, and for each legion I have created thirty cohorts, and for each cohort I have created thirty maniples, and for each maniple I have created thirty camps, and to each camp I have attached three hundred and sixty-five thousand myriads of stars, corresponding to the days of the solar year, and all of them I have created only for thy sake, and thou sayest, Thou hast forgotten me and forsaken me! Can a woman forsake her suckling child?"

This passage in the Talmud (Gemara, Tractate Brachot) is a beautiful illustration of how very exact HaShem, Creator of Heaven and Earth, is in His care of His creation. He created ALL of creation for the sake of Israel, including the stars in the sky - which were configured in a unique and particular way at the year, month, day, hour, time and place that YOU were born.

Each person's individual Natal Chart tells a unique story. Rosh HaShannah is coming - in fact, just a few weeks away. Give yourself the gift of self-awareness and schedule an appointment with me for a personalized Reflective Rectification Astrological Analysis reading.

I work in person or over Skype with clients from around the world. Our conversation (typically lasting about an hour, sometimes longer depending on the circumstances) is recorded and I send you a private link to the recording for you to download and keep yourself, as well as a copy of the drawing of your chart.

I don't tell the future, I don't tell fortunes. I use your chart to give you reflective feedback on your personality, your strengths and areas of challenge, your family of origin issues, your relationship with love, money, career, friendships, etc.

I've seen other astrologers who bill themselves as "clairvoyant" or "intuitive." I don't like to use adjectives like that about my own work but I can tell you that I look at the picture of your chart and even if I've never met you (ESPECIALLY if I don't actually know you!) I get a reading that 99% of my clients tell me is uncannily accurate, insightful and, most importantly - HELPFUL to my clients in their quest to understand themselves better and to obtain insight into the purpose and meaning of their lives.

I charge 400NIS (Israeli Shekels) or $100USD (U.S. Dollars) for a reading. I can be paid via PayPal at:

Every picture tells a story. Let me tell you the story of your picture.
