“For each child that’s born a morningstar rises and sings to the universe who we are.”

Lee provides a number of services that are not just the usual chart analysis. Some of these are old types, and some were interesting ideas that clients initiated.
Because Astrology postulates that the cycles of the planets can mirror our circumstances, we have an ideal tool to examine the longer trends in life to see just exactly where you are in these processes and how you can find opportunities for birthing your free will. It’s a way which helps you to distinguish between the things you can change, and the things that would cost too much energy and time to change.
When it comes to yearly updates, Lee has two options. You can do the regular live session update, or you can do the Executive Summary, which is a written report. This is a different style reading, based on the premise that, in the course of a decade, probably only one or two years will be really important, or life-changing. It characterizes how important a given year is for change, how this year fits in with the years adjacent to it, the “talking points” for the most important themes suggested for the year. If desired, this can also include a recommendation for whether the weaknesses of the year can be substantially improved by relocation, although the report does no include a specific relocation. Whichever format of solar return you choose, you are encouraged to clarify any issues through e-mail before the reading occurs.

The two year options are just that: the price differential recognizes that Lee’s system of comparing years requires both a little less time to calculate and deliver two years worth of data compared to one year.
In either method, Lee will ask you for a series of questions related to your priorities for discussion, to insure that the topics which are most important to you are discussed.
The Best dates in a year option lists the best dates you can plan in a particular subject: your choice. These are like mini electionals: geared to periods in which your chart is super-strong.
The Top 3/Bottom 3 option is a different approach to being aware of good days and bad days on a custom basis.For a period you specify – from 1-3 months, usually, but it could be as much as a year – Lee provides you with the best three and the worst three dates for the business activity you propose (for example: meeting new clients). Note that these are not full elections (which would include times), but dates,so they are not as precisely targeted, but should provide better than average results.
The relocation of the solar return option is one possibility you may want to consider, depending on the nature of the solar return discussed in the yearly update. Lee does not advise relocating for every solar return, because doing so could weaken the effect in years where it is truly a good idea. The reason for doing so is if the birth place solar return shows a considerable blockage of energy, goals, or health. This option does not include delineating the relocated solar return: that would be done in the yearly update itself
Rectification: There are many methods based on the birth chart that require a fairly exact time. Yearly forecasts are difficult without a close time. Relocation is next to impossible without a fairly accurate time.
Most astrologers are fairly comfortable adjusting a chart by 15 minutes plus or minus from the given birth time. This becomes fairly obvious in studying the person for a couple of years: predicted dates fall consistently early or consistently late.
But what if there’s a problem with your time that’s more than a few minutes?
Your birth certificate may not have a time on it at all. Different states have at different points changed their regulations about whether a time is recorded.
You may still be in luck: hospitals began to do early diagnostic tests on infants that require doing observation in the first few minutes of life: accordingly, you may be able to get access to hospital records of those measurements. But then, you may not have been born in a hospital.
Your mother may remember your time as considerably different than your birth certificate time. My own mother remembered my time as roughly three hours earlier than my recorded time.
There may be a problem with your birth record that obscures the time, such as a smudge on the original.
The process of studying life events in order to estimate the correct birth time is called rectification. Although the general techniques are very old, rectification is considered a specialty. This was often because it was so time-consuming to do, that many astrologers simply didn’t want the work. Now there are computer programs to help the scanning process – but the scan is only the first step. The resulting possibilities need to be checked, in order to propose a time with any confidence.
Here’s how Lee works. First, she will give you a questionnaire asking for biographical information, and the ten most important dates in your life. These might include: births of children, death dates of parents, graduation dates, traumatic events, medical issues, etc. She will ask about specific things in your life. She will then use these events to scan for likely times, and then check those times against astrological events drawn for those times using at least three entirely unrelated systems. If more than one time potentially checks out, she may send you some descriptions based on the “finalists” for your input. There is usually one or more rounds of follow-up questions once Lee has received the questionnaire. Once Lee has the proposed time, she will give you some predictions for the next six months or so to begin to check the precision of the time.
One caveat: the smaller the range of time, the better the results are likely to be. Four to six hours or less is a good time range for doing this sort of work. Larger time intervals are likely to result in several possible times, and it may be difficult to extract only one. The longer the time range beyond six hours, the more time intensive this process becomes. Please check with Lee first if your unknown period is more than six hours, because an additional fee may be required.
Anything else you need?
If what you want doesn’t fall easily into these areas, contact Lee to design a custom format that will meet your needs.
Lee records your consultation through Zoom, so you can either phone in, or log in through your computer, tablet, or smart phone. The recording your receive will be an mp4 video recording. It works best to have a headset/ microphone combination for your computer. This is especially great if you know astrology, and would like to also “look over Lee’s shoulder” while she does the consultation.
The not-so-fine print: failure to show for an appointment does not constitute a reason for cancellation of charges, because work has been done. If you are more than 15 minutes late to an appointment, it will likely need to be rescheduled, and 15 minutes time will be deducted from the appointment time.
