I’m Sylvi (they/them) a practicing Astrologer based primarily out of occupied Squaxin land in so-called Washington. I have been studying Astrology for over 12 years, primarily concentrated on uncovering the historic roots of what is often incorrectly referred to as ‘Western’ Horoscopic Astrology. The enhancement of my knowledge began in 2014 when I met Demetra George, completed her coursework, and tutored under her most advanced students. In 2016, I studied under the instruction of Austin Coppock and have since completed his Fundamentals I & II courses, among others. By 2018, I graduated from the Portland School of Astrology with a specialized focus in counseling as an invaluable skill I apply to one-on-one readings. I have also completed Chris Brennan’s Hellenistic and Electional Astrology courses, taken extensive online courses under Medical Astrologer Judith Hill, Vedic Astrologer Ernst Wildhelm, and worked directly with Claire Gallagher through her Physical Astrology based intensives, namely Body by the Moon.
I came to Astrology amidst a path to reconnect with wild places and our natural world. I was humbled by the realization that it is impossible to find one’s place within an ecosystem on the ground while ignoring our connection to sky. This work is unending but has been tremendously healing in my life, far beyond what I could have imagined to be possible. When wielded with pure intention, I believe Astrology has the power to be much more than a novelty, pop-culture trend co-opted to feed the narrative of capitalism. Rather, it can be used as a powerful catalyst to the support and initiation of radical change within our communities.
Outside my standard consultation practice, I am passionate about using art and comedy to simplify complex concepts as well as contribute to the ever-evolving dialogue around the historical and modern applications of Horoscopic Astrology. Consider this an open invitation to participate in the ongoing conversation of how this doctrine might be revised and implemented to better serve those who need it most. It is my goal to make the tools of learning and applying Astrology widely accessible and inclusive to all. I look forward to meeting you!
