Astrology & HUMAN DESIGN


Astrology is the study of the influence that the sun, stars and planets have on our human lives on earth. The position of the planetary bodies at a person’s precise time of birth – and in relation to their precise location of birth  – is believed to correlate with their personality as well as the events that unfold in their lives and the greatest potential of their soul. Astrologers also track the current movements (transits) of the planets in today’s skies, and interpret how these movements may activate or impact a person’s natal birth chart placements, providing wonderful and empowering insight and options with regards to current and upcoming events and unfoldings. 

Human Design is a newer practice that pulls from Astrology, Kabbalah, I-Ching, and Ayurveda. In Human Design you are less focused on the areas of your life, like Astrology, and more focused on your body and its energy. With Human Design we look at your aura, your body and its rhythms and energies, you reason for incarnating in this lifetime, your manifestation style, your karmic pattern, the environments your body prefers, and even the types of eating styles that’ll maximize your digestion. Human Design is a unique tool that we can apply to all areas of our life to increase the ease and success in everything we do.
Clients can expect to find increased self acceptance, self awareness, less friction in their life and more success, and lots of ideas for how to maximize their cosmic design from a reading! (Please note, Riv is the only practitioner who currently offers this type of reading at this time.)

Astrology is great for: Self-discovery, healing through past awareness, future perspectives, timing important actions.

Human Design is great for: Self-acceptance, decision making, maximizing your body’s natural rhythms, understanding how your auric field works, learning your reason for reincarnating, how you manifest best, improving digestion, improving cognition, increasing ease of success in life!



Everything in the universe is made up of energy and that energy vibrates at various frequencies. We are always interacting with the frequency of the universe at large and astrology or human design can offer insight into how this energy plays out. Both are a form of divination where we can look at the stars at various points in time to see how their energies will influence our life

Our physical bodies are literally made from stardust. Just like the moon has a pull on tides in the ocean, the planets in their orbit also have a pull on us as we are made of 70-80% water. This fact can help us expand to see how the ther planets can affect us too.

Astrology has been sought out for as long as there has been organized civilization in order to understand more about the planets and the forces of the universe and how they affect our lives, behavior and even course of events. Every star and planet holds a certain vibration and when we are born, we are electromagnetically imprinted with this energy. Astrology is the ancient art of reading this energy and an astrological reading can provide immense insight into your own nature, your relationships, the major events and direction of your life, and even picking auspiscious dates to make your life more magickal.

Human Design, although a newer practice, pulls from 4 ancient practices (Astrology, Kabbalah, I-ching, Aureyveda) to divine information about how your body is energetically designed to work, its gifts, rhythyms, and even your purpose for incarnating in this lifetime. In a Human Design reading you can just look at your chart to see what environments your body prefers, how you are designed to interact with others in this world, if you karma is singular or for the collective, and your biggest energetic gifts; OR you can dive deep to see what gene keys you ahve and how to maximize their potential in your business or in relationships!

Getting your chart read will give you a greater insight into yourself, what you have or will be going through, and the understanding of how to magnify the good periods and transmute the challenges.

Great for: Self-discovery, healing through past awareness, future perspectives, maximizing this lifetime and your gifts, understanding your children better for a smoother and more supportive parenting experience.

Great time for readings: Birthdays (and births!), transitions, in times where you need a deeper understanding of yourself, looking for auspicious dates (for projects, businesses, weddings, house selling, etc.)


An astrology birth chart — also called an astrology natal chart — is a map of where all the planets were in their journey around the Sun (from our vantage point on earth) at the exact moment you were born. An astrology chart reading can reveal your strengths and weaknesses, your opportunities for soul growth, the best timing for your most important moves, the astrological themes and challenges based on the year of life you’re in, and your cosmic gifts.

A human design natal chart reading shows the map of where the planets and stars were when you were born AND where they were 9 months before (essentially when you were conceived). You can see your body’s energy and rhythms, your reason for incarnating in this lifetime, how you will move through the world, how your intuition and aura works, and even how you manifest best.


Astrological transits are one of the main means used in horoscopic astrology to forecast future trends and developments (the other means used is astrological progression, which progresses the horoscope forward in time according to set methods). As its name implies, astrological transits involve a method of interpreting the ongoing movement of the planets as they transit the horoscope. This is most often done for the birth or Natal Chart of a particular individual. Particular attention is paid to changes of sign, or house, and to the aspects or angles the transiting planets make with the natal chart.


Synastry, also known as relationship astrology, involves the comparison of two astrological charts to determine areas of strength and weakness in a relationship. Synastry is a valuable resource for people who want to examine their relationship with another person based on aspects between each person’s birth charts

We often hear that the leading cause of our problems is within ourselves. But so is the solution.

It may seem far-fetched, but the power to solve all of our physical and emotional issues, whether it’s health, relationships, career, finances, self-esteem, or something else, is in our hands.

Metaphysical counseling helps us uncover the root of our suffering and address it accordingly. Let’s find out how!

Great for: Transitions, getting to the next level, breaking free of limiting beliefs or blockages, empowering one to believe in themselves, having accountability through your goals

what is metaphysics

Metaphysics is the most abstract branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of existence. In Greek, the word metaphysics means “after the things of nature”.

Metaphysics examines the very nature of reality. It offers explanations for phenomena that cannot be explained by “natural” science or that are “beyond the physical”.

This science studies the individual as a whole, as a physical and spiritual being.

Certain types of chakra healing and other holistic, spiritual healing practices, personal development, and even business coaching are based on metaphysics. They typically include working on physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of one’s being to resolve issues that person is facing.

The fundamental law of metaphysics is that every action or decision causes a reaction or an effect. Everything that happens to us (positive or negative) results from past actions or decisions in this lifetime or before the present life.

Similarly, everything we do now will have an effect on our life in the future. This law is better known as karma (action).

It is also believed that we must resolve our life’s issues in this lifetime.

What is metaphysical counseling?

Metaphysical counseling is based on the principle that everyone is sent by the Soul (higher self) to grow at all levels of their being through their life experiences and the lessons they learn in life.

Sometimes referred to as spiritual or transpersonal counseling, it represents a whole person approach – body, mind, and spirit. This type of counseling helps us better understand our life experiences by explaining aspects that our senses cannot perceive.

To put it simply, metaphysical counseling is a form of therapy that empowers us to empower ourselves.

There are many ways metaphysical counseling can take place. This will depend on the practitioner you choose, the kind of spirituality they practice, and the specific issues you may be looking to address.

Some counselors will advise you on the use of crystals for healing, while others will stress the importance of prayer.

This is why it is essential to find a counselor whose beliefs align with yours. Otherwise, your counseling might not have the desired effect.

What can metaphysical counseling help us with?

Metaphysical counseling is a type of holistic-approach therapy based on spiritual principles. This psycho-spiritual approach helps people live a more authentic life by making conscious choices.

It is a self-empowering therapy that gives us the tools to identify and address the imbalances in our belief system that cause conflict and prevent us from achieving success and happiness. These beliefs are so subconscious that we aren’t always aware of them.

With the help of a therapist, people can discover the fundamental causes of their suffering and reach a solution through self-discovery.

It is all about learning to utilize our own self-healing power to reinstate harmony.

This can apply on multiple levels – physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Good metaphysical counseling will address all of those.

What does a metaphysical counselor do?

A metaphysical counselor is capable of healing not only the human mind but the body as well. They can help with various mental issues, including depression, anxiety, and loneliness, or any physical illness, by offering guidance and support to their clients.

A metaphysical counselor can help us navigate our way to health, success, strength, or anything else we desire. They also help clients understand their spiritual nature in this lifetime and beyond.

Each counselor will have their own approach; some will focus on the metaphysical properties of the things around you and how to use those to your benefit, while others will prefer working on your own inner world.

We are all exposed to various positive and negative influences that shape our daily actions, thoughts, and reality. Negative impacts lead to issues like anxiety, negativity, and close-mindedness.

Metaphysical counseling aims to free people from these negative influences and their effects.

Gaining a better understanding of ourselves and our connection to the physical and spiritual world surrounding us with the help of a metaphysical counselor gives us the ability to recognize these harmful influences and build a defense mechanism.

The root of these problems lies deeper than the physical, mental, or emotional sphere. To find a solution, we must target the source. And that lies at the deepest and wisest level of our being – the level of the Soul. Many life situations can only be addressed through the metaphysical laws, and the soul factor is always present. Metaphysical counselors teach us numerous powerful techniques and spiritual principles we can utilize to find the greater good in any challenging situation.

They give us the tools to find a solution to our life issues without a struggle, using less energy in the process.

What to expect from your first metaphysical counseling session

During the first session, the client answers a series of questions regarding their life and the issues that are troubling them.

The counselor listens attentively to understand not only the surface issue but also the stressful beliefs and patterns that are causing the problem.

Further steps depend on the specific type of counseling and the counselor you choose. But after a counseling session, the goal is for clients to experience a greater sense of inner peace and well-being.

Not a one-size-fits-all approach

Metaphysics is a versatile form of therapy, so it can be adjusted to the client’s changing needs as the sessions develop.

Therapists use a variety of counseling skills and techniques. They usually determine which method is the most suitable, depending on the client’s condition at that moment.

For example, you may focus on meditation to prepare yourself for success but turn to more conversation-based therapy to deal with anxiety.

As you and your counselor work together, you will find what works best for you personally. This is one of the significant benefits of metaphysical approaches – they are highly flexible.

Metaphysics can be applied to almost any condition and is incredibly helpful with issues regarding:

mental health
challenges in the workplace
relationship issues
dealing with stress and anxiety
understanding emotional reactions
unlocking habitual patterns
