What is Evolutionary Astrology?

Most of us are familiar with astrology in the form of Sun signs and horoscopes seen online and in the paper. Evolutionary astrology is different. Instead of focusing on your life right now, evolutionary astrology takes a holistic approach, looking at the entire journey of your soul. One of the basic tenants of this type of astrology is that your soul has lived multiple lives, and that each life is full of lessons and energies. In your current life, you experience “echoes” from the past, which influence your soul’s desire in this life.

Each reading comes with a natal chart. This is a map of the sky at the precise moment in time and place where you were born. It will likely look confusing and not-very-exciting if you have never seen one before. That said, there is a wealth of information contained in what looks like a geometry assignment gone wrong! The circle you see is divided into twelve houses with the twelve astrological signs you are likely familiar with. Within this circle are all of the planets, represented as living energies we all experience, along with other celestial bodies, marking their location at the time and from the physical location of your birth. This map acts as a guide for what you have experienced in past lifetimes and the medicine you might need in your current life.

For evolutionary astrology, Pluto is the most important planet. Some might even say that when Pluto comes a knocking, your life goes a rocking.  You could very well have been someone who has tried everything else, yet an experience with Pluto has brought you to consider evolutionary astrology.  It tells the story of your soul, acting as a reference point for where you have been deeply disempowered, where your greatest defenses lie, and where you rise from the ashes like a phoenix.

The Nodes of the Moon are also important, as they represent destiny or the karmic line. It shows where you have been and where you are going. The South Node tells us the energy that we came into our current life with – that is, the energy that comes easiest to us, and our past ego identity and development. The North Node shows us what the soul wants to achieve, the experience of growth and evolution– it is the experiences and energies we are moving towards, a new identity with increased wisdom in this life.

Why “Echo + Light”?

Echo + Light is a nod to the basic ideas of evolutionary astrology. The first is that we have multiple lives, and through each life we experience “echoes” of our past. The experiences continue to affect us subconsciously for good or bad. The second reference is to “light,” or the celestial and planetary influences around us. Planets are their own energetic bodies of energy that influence and bring knowledge, allowing us to become the shining stars we are all meant to be.

About Kristin

With over 14 years of experience as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Kristin has spent much of her career focused on healing others, specifically veterans and those suffering from extreme trauma, depression, and PTSD. She has an undergraduate in psychology and a master’s degree in social work.  She worked in conventional systems treating patients in clinical treatment centers, a VA medical center, several active military installations, and private practice.   She continues to work with service members in a clinical capacity while pursuing this passion project. Born and raised in the commonwealth of Virginia, Kristin has finally accomplished a lifelong dream of moving to Southern California with her standard poodle, Charlie. After experiencing the cataclysmic shock of the planet Pluto in 2017, she began a course of intense self-study and discovered the incredible healing and powerful medicine of evolutionary astrology.

Kristin has studied with several astrologers, completed workshops, and continually educates herself in all thing’s evolutionary astrology.  Finding meaning in the passing of time, the cycles of the earth, and living with these active planetary energies for the collective good is her passion. By weaving together, the confrontational nature of Jeffery Wolf Green (the founding father of evolutionary astrology), the nurturing teachings of Steven Forrest, and over a decade of clinical experience, she has developed a technique that works to individually meet the client, wherever they are, for practical astrological/life counseling. Kristin also uses humanistic and depth psychology tools, as well as the teachings of Carl Jung, the father of modern psychology. Kristin has been deeply influenced by Thomas Moore, James Hillman, and Dane Rudhyar. These profound teachers serve as supportive guides for healing the needs of the soul a skill sorely lacking in our modern world.
