Christopher S. Rollyson, Counselor to Kings and Queens

Every person has a King/Queen within. When you discover it and reclaim it, you can change your life in the most delightful and meaningful ways.

Understanding your birth chart helps you re-discover your Queen/King self, to reclaim it and release your “accommodating self.” My mission as an astrologer is to help you “get back home” to your true self, so you can live your truth and change your life.

When you live in harmony with your inner King/Queen self, you live at a different level.

crownI can help you do this work by using various types of astrological analysis that I have described below. As an astrological counselor, I see myself as a guide and facilitator in your work. I support you in making the life changes you want. Although there are variations, our basic pattern of collaboration is:

  1. We have a meeting to get acquainted. I want to hear about what’s going on in your life, why you are seeking advice, and what you want from it. You ask me any questions you want and decide whether you want to have a chart done. If you do, you give me your birth time, date, and place. Date and place are required, and time enables me to make your chart more specific.
  2. Then I use the data you gave me to conduct the astrological analysis you asked me to do.
  3. We meet to discuss the analysis in one or two meetings. Then I will suggest various approaches to use the chart’s insights to make changes in your life.
  4. You can choose to meet in additional sessions in which I mentor you in making the life changes you want.

Getting to Know Your Queen/King: Natal Charts

Natal (birth) charts reveal your spiritual and emotional structure. They show what makes you tick at a deep level. They enable you to start living with a new level of awareness. I offer several levels of astrological analysis: Character, Emotional/Psychological, and Spiritual Journey. Each level includes the preceding levels.

Your Character Analysis

number-button-gold-1Your natal chart gives you insights into your inner King/Queen as set by the time and place of your birth in this life:

  • Your motivations for living and instinctual self (Sun and Moon analysis).
  • Perceiving, thinking, and communicating (Mercury analysis).
  • Relationship patterns: love, friendship, family, profession (Venus analysis).
  • Your instincts and ways of getting what you want (Mars analysis).
  • Social harmony and conflicts (basic aspects between inner/outer planets).
  • How transits affect you (how overall chart patterns get affected by planetary movements).
  • In addition, these are included when you know your birth time:
    • Your way of looking at the world and being seen by the world (Ascendant/Descendant analysis).
    • Work and career (Meridian analysis: Nadir and Midheaven).
  • The Character Analysis Chart reveals each energy’s character, how the energies affect each other, and how they tend to present in your life.
  • Character Analysis includes dozens of pages of explanations, a beautiful notebook for you to journal your insights, realizations, and life changes, and a one-hour meeting to go through it together.

Your Character + Emotional and Psychological Profile

number-button-gold-2This chart and consultation includes the Character Analysis along with:

  • Your deepest motivations: advanced chart pattern analysis.
  • Wounding and healing: Chiron analysis.
  • Joy and fortune: Pars fortunæ analysis.
  • A karmic journey: basic Moon nodes analysis.
  • In addition, these are included when you know your birth time:
    • Your behavior patterns: House ruler analysis
    • Repressions and dark places: 12th/8th/4th house analysis
  • Your Emotional/Psychological Profile includes dozens and dozens of pages of explanations, a beautiful notebook for you to journal your insights, realizations, and life changes, as well as a 90-minute meeting to go through it together.

Your Character + Emotional/Psychological Profile + Spiritual Journey

number-button-gold-3Your King/Queen Complete Analysis includes Character Analysis and Emotional/Psychological Profile in addition to:

  • Saturn-centric reading of your whole chart reveals your unadulterated and spiritual self before you started accommodating the environment (people, society) into which you were born.
  • Retrograde planet analysis explains areas in your life in which you have a hard time connecting with other people. Most people have one or more planets in their natal charts that, due to Earth’s and the planets’ movements, were appearing to move “backward” (retrograde) when they were born. In these cases, the planetary energy expresses quite differently, and it reveals deep unconscious behavior patterns that can confuse you and people in your life. Retrogrades can also reveal links to past lives.
  • A karmic journey: advanced Moon nodes analysis.
  • Septiles and noviles are rarely considered by most astrologers, but they decode life patterns that indicate mystical connections to life purpose. Most people have one or more in their charts, so we use them to give you a deeper sense of your spiritual mission in this life, and connections to other lives if you want to consider them.
  • Complete Analysis includes your chart and over a hundred pages of explanations, a beautiful notebook for you to journal your insights, realizations, and life changes, and two one-hour meetings to go through it together.


Advisory Sessions

astro_advisoryYour natal chart re-acquaints you with your inner Queen/King and shows how it differs from your “Accommodated Self.” The Accommodated Self is the self you created to fit in with your family, schools, culture, etc. Your life may be built around your Accommodated Self, which may be quite different from your inner King/Queen.

Based on our work with your chart, you can learn to see your self at a different level, and you may discover that you want to change aspects of your life. If you want to make changes, you are likely to run into resistance from the other people in your life (and from conflicting parts of your self.. most of us have conflicting parts ;^).

Advisory sessions give us the chance to work together to help you use your chart to get what you want and to work through any resistance you encounter. We schedule periodic coaching sessions in which I show you how to use your chart to remain true to your inner Queen/King. We can meet face to face, via video, via telephone, or a combination of these.

Sessions are 50 minutes each, although we can change the duration if it’s better for you. At each, we discuss what happened since our last session, and we formulate ideas and goals until the next one.


Relationships with Your Natal Chart

astro_relationshipBy knowing your self through your natal chart, you can live with more purpose and develop a sense of your life purpose. Now imagine how this approach can transform your relationships with your partner, children parents, friends, siblings, work colleagues, and more. Each of these analyses has different levels of analysis like the natal charts described above. And you can mix and match chart levels (#1, #2, #3). Synastry charts reveal the roots of how you feel about each other while composite charts show the vibration of your relationship, which has its own presence that’s distinct from each of you.

You and Your Partner

  • A natal chart (#1, #2, or #3), your spouse’s/partner’s natal chart (#1, #2, or #3), and how they interact.
  • This includes doing each chart separately, then discussing how they tend to interact. You can choose to come in together, or to have separate sessions first before we discuss all three together.
  • Understand the roots of your conflicts and harmony, and what each one of you really wants from life—and your relationship.
  • Know yourself and your partner at a different level!
  • This applies to domestic and business partners.

You and Your Child(ren)

  • A natal chart (#1, #2, or #3), your child’s natal chart (#1, #2, or #3), and how they interact.

  • Understand the roots of your conflicts and harmony, and what each one of you really wants from life—and your relationship.
  • Know your self and your child at a different level!
  • All kinds of combinations are possible; we can use charts to delve into how siblings interact, and how you can help your children to live more fully.

You and Your Family

  • Describes family dynamics. Useful when you are contemplating family changes like engagement/marriage, divorce/separation, children, adoption.
  • A natal chart (#1, #2, or #3), your family members’ natal charts (#1, #2, or #3), and how they interact.

  • Know your family at a different level!


Forecasting with Your Natal Chart

astro_forecastDo you realize that your natal chart is only the first frame of your movie? The planets and earth continue to move, and they make angles to your birth planets, creating all kinds of effects. They confront some of your energies to change, activate entire patterns in your chart. Your birth chart not only has planetary positions, but entire patterns that work like electric circuits, and when one or more planets makes angles to these circuits, they get energized. When you know this is happening, you can respond to make changes that you want.

Career and Business Forecast

  • astro_careerWe use your natal chart and planetary transits to its sensitive points to understand your challenges and opportunities.
  • This forecast reveals your “career weather” for the next two years.
  • We focus on the positions of Jupiter and Saturn, your solar and inner planet returns, and how these will be interacting with the patterns of your birth chart.
  • This is very useful when you are contemplating investments like additional schooling, taking a job overseas, taking a sabbatical, opening a business, buying into a partnership, etc.

Annual Forecast: Solar Returns

  • glyph-SunThe astrological name for your birthday is your solar return because the Sun returns to where it was when you were born. The interesting thing about solar returns is that all the other planets are in different places. That keeps your Sun energy on its toes!
  • Your solar return reveals the key themes for the next year. You’ll learn about areas of friction and opportunity in personal growth, career, romance, travel, and many more.
  • The Annual Forecast includes your solar return chart and my analysis of its key themes as well as a separate chart that compares your solar return to your natal chart.
  • Your solar return does not tell you what will happen—you determine that by the choices you make—but it reveals where the universe will be most open to you and where it will challenge you during the year ahead.
  • The Annual Forecast enables you to embrace your life with a sense of purpose, and it shows how you can harmonize with the universe to make the changes you want in your life.

Romance and Relationship Forecast: Venus Returns

  • glyph-VenusEvery planet in your natal chart returns to the same sign and degree it occupied when you were born although Neptune and Pluto don’t return within the human lifespan. Venus orbits the Sun approximately every 225 days, so that is its return period.
  • Each Venus return describes energies around your relationships until the next return. Venus is in the same position it occupied, but all other planets are different.
  • The Romance and Relationship Forecast includes your Venus return chart and my analysis of its key themes as well as a separate chart that compares your Venus return to your natal chart.
  • Venus returns tell you whether you’ll tend to have conflicts with your partner, lover, rivals/enemies, clients, and other 7th house relationships (exclusive I–Thou relationships).
  • Your Venus return does not tell you what will happen—you determine that by the choices you make—but it reveals where the universe will be most open to what you want from relationships and where it will challenge you during the next 255 days.

Your Results While Interacting with the External World: Jupiter Returns

glyph-JupiterJupiter returns occur about every twelve years, so they offer a unique window into the patterns of your external life, which reveals how you as a unique individual try to make your mark on the world. They are long enough to have many significant milestones yet each is varied and distinct. While Saturn (see below) marks your life in three acts, Jupiter has more intervals; its returns often feel like there are more chances and choices.

  • Jupiter signifies how unique individuals interact with external society to exercise their will. To “make your way in the world,” you leave the bosom of your family of origin. You face the unknown, and each twelve year cycle is distinct, yet it tells your larger story, too.
  • From a practical perspective, Jupiter returns describe the astrological weather of the cycle you’re currently in. Be prepared for mind-bending “ah ha” moments as you trace milestones of your current cycle.
  • Jupiter returns are very useful for career planning, family planning, and understanding harmonies and conflicts in your current relationships, for each of these involves your “results” of interacting with the larger social world.
  • Although Jupiter occupies the same place it was on your birth, all the other planets will be different, so this Jupiter return will reveal planetary energies and themes that will color your next 12 years. It shows the themes created by planetary energies, and you will create your life by making decisions by interacting with the planetary energies.
  • In addition to your Jupiter return chart, I will create a combined chart that shows and explains how the Jupiter return connects to the planetary energies of your natal (birth) chart.
  • Your Jupiter return includes your return chart, a combined chart, and many pages of explanations along with a beautiful journal for you to use to note your life changes as well as two one-hour meetings to go through it together.
  • Advisory sessions may also be helpful (see above).

Life Cycles One: Young Adult

  • glyph-SaturnSaturn circles the zodiac every 28/29 years, and its return to the same degree it occupied when you were born is a major life event. Saturn signifies all kinds of rules and structures, so it is fitting that it marks one’s life in three acts. This is the end of Act One and the beginning of Act Two.
  • Through your Saturn return chart, you will discover your legacy and reexamine how your origins, family, culture, and upbringing shaped who you are today. This is an opportunity to develop a new perspective on your life thus far and to plan for the future.
  • Although Saturn occupies the same place it was on your birth, all the other planets will be different, so this Saturn return will reveal planetary energies and themes that will color your next 28/29 years.

  • In addition to your Saturn return chart, I will create a combined chart that shows and explains how the Saturn return connects to the planetary energies of your natal (birth) chart.
  • Life Cycles One includes your return chart, a combined chart, and many pages of explanations along with a beautiful journal for you to use to note your life changes as well as two one-hour meetings to go through it together.
  • Advisory sessions may also be helpful (see above).

  • glyph-SaturnSaturn circles the zodiac every 28/29 years, and its return to the same degree it occupied when you were born is a major life event. Saturn signifies all kinds of structures and rules, so it is fitting that it marks one’s life in three acts. This is the end of Act Two and the beginning of Act Three.
  • Through your Saturn return chart, you will discover your legacy and reexamine how your origins, family, culture, and upbringing shaped the life you built during your first and second Saturn cycles. This is an opportunity to develop a new perspective on your life thus far and to plan for your third cycle.
  • Although Saturn occupies the same place it was on your birth, all the other planets will be different, so this Saturn return will reveal planetary energies and themes that will color your next 28/29 years. It shows the planetary energies, and you create your life by making decisions through interacting with the planetary energies.
  • In addition to your Saturn return chart, I will create a combined chart that shows and explains how the Saturn return connects to your natal (birth) chart.
