Welcome! My name is Mel and I’m an astrologer based in Edmonton, Alberta. I’ve been studying astrology since I was a teenager. I gave my first astrology lecture to my Grade 9 English class. The teacher probably didn’t appreciate my liberal interpretation of the assignment, but that presentation marked the beginning of my passion for sharing the knowledge of the cosmos with others.

In 2021, I obtained my Fundamentals of Natal Astrology Certificate from Kepler College and completed OPA’s Consulting Skills training. I currently serve on the executive committee of the Edmonton Astrological Society.

I love helping people learn about their natal chart and how it connects all the dots of their life – relationships, career, family, money, greatest strengths, biggest challenges, why they keep breaking their foot, what happened in the past and what’s coming up in the future. 

I currently offer a couple different types of consultations: an hour-long basic natal chart reading, a solar return/year ahead reading, and a natal follow-up for returning clients.

To book a consultation, please use the scheduling tool below.

So how does this work?

The day before your reading, I will send you a Zoom link. We will meet over Zoom on the date/time you selected using the booking tool above. 


What topics will be covered?

Whatever you like! Your natal chart contains information on all areas of your life, so anything is fair game. I’ll rely on you to provide some topics or questions on the intake form and at the start of our consultation, to help guide the conversation in a direction that’s most relevant to you. You are free to ask different questions throughout.


What can I expect in the consultation?

Astrology offers profound insight into your character and life circumstances, including things that you might prefer not to think about. Facing your most difficult thoughts, actions, beliefs and experiences can be uncomfortable, and you reserve the right to reveal as much or as little information as you want. Addressing your fears, anxieties and turmoil through the context of the natal chart can help you become conscious of limiting patterns and beliefs, and give you key insights to help integrate these parts of yourself in a more productive way.


Can you predict my future?

Astrology can offer surprisingly accurate information about things that might happen, but I will not make any definitive predictions about specific events. I will focus on your chart in the context of your current and past experience, to help you understand how you will respond to future events. 


What kind of astrology do you practice?

I practice traditional astrology with some modern techniques. I use Whole Sign Houses, traditional rulerships, and all of the planets including Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. I do not use Chiron, asteroids or fixed stars.


What is your refund policy?

You can cancel your reading up to 48 hours ahead of the scheduled date/time and receive a full refund. If you are within 48 hours of your appointment, you can reschedule to another date/time with no extra charge. I do not offer refunds for no-shows.
