Hi! I'm Kris Journey.
With a 1st house Libra stellium (Juno-Mercury-Mars-Pluto) trined by Jupiter in Gemini from the 9th, I’m a trauma-sensitive feminist committed to fairness and social equality. With a 3rd house Moon conjunct Neptune and Venus on the Ascendant, I’m highly intuitive and attuned to creativity in its myriad forms. As a double Virgo, I’m also a devoted researcher in touch with the practicalities of everyday life.
I live in New York’s Hudson Valley, where I hike regularly with my lab/Dane mix.
As a rich symbolic language that connects the cosmos with individual lives and even the fate of countries, astrology encompasses my many loves: philosophy, psychology, mythology, politics, collective life, community, and social change. As far as school goes, I studied the history of philosophy at St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and at the University of Chicago. As a working-class feminist influenced by the ’90s Riot Grrl and DIY/punk scenes, I consider social justice and supporting historically excluded folx essential. I’ve also had a career in publishing with a focus in radical/progressive culture and politics, health, and mental health, all of which make their way into my approach to astrology.
I consult in person at True Light Academy in Kingston, New York, regularly with the Roundout Valley Holistic Health community clinic, and via phone and video. During social distancing as a result of Covid-19, all consultations are conducted remotely.
I began learning astrology from my parents’ large esoteric library when I was a teen (shoutout to Linda Goodman, one of astrology’s great popularizers). I’ve since studied at an advanced level for more than 15 years, learning from several expert astrologers, and completed two years of private study with master astrologer and asteroid expert Dawn Bogrodi.
I am a member of NCGR, the Organization for Professional Astrology, and the International Society for Astrological Research. I am currently enrolled in the Organization for Professional Astrology’s certification program and continue ongoing astrological education through a variety of avenues.
