YOUR BEST RESPONSE TO FATE
Deborah Fisher is an astrologer, martial artist, and Zen practitioner living in Ithaca, NY. Her approach to astrology is a blend of ancient predictive techniques that can be surprisingly precise, and modern psychological interpretation that emphasizes our capacity for interpersonal growth. She has been practicing astrology since 2015, and applies a lifetime of practical experience as an artist, entrepreneur, and arts administrator to her consultations, as well as decades of consistent spiritual practice. Fisher founded A Blade of Grass, the first national and international arts nonprofit solely dedicated to socially engaged art, in 2010, and recently stepped down as Executive Director to focus on astrology and aikido full time. She believes that astrology is a cultural form that can help us envision and enact a more just, interconnected, and compassionate world. And she wants each consultation to be a useful and effective response to whatever life is throwing at you.
Astrology is a collaborative storytelling system that is symbolically predictive. While the future is ultimately unknowable, a consultation can help you:
SEE YOUR PURPOSE, DIRECTION, AND STRENGTHS
Natal astrology looks at your sky. It assumes that the moment you were born can provide symbolic insight into who you are; the karma you are meant to resolve; the things that will come easily and what will feel more like a struggle; and even the times in your life that will be particularly active.
IMAGINE THE FUTURE
Astrology is symbolic and archetypal, but the movement of the planets is literal and predictable. This play between fact and story works a lot like the interplay between fate and free will that we are all negotiating every day, and that makes astrology a powerful tool to concretely imagine the best possible future given what you have to work with.
Astrology would be silly if only humans were conscious, and if we lived in a soulless universe of resources that we can just mindlessly extract. But I think this worldview is a depleting dead end that is causing a lot of our problems. Astrology is a way to shift that worldview! It persistently reveals that we are live in a conscious universe, and that we are all in this together, under one sky.
