"My session with Michael was fun and conversational, but I would also find myself surprised by the deep streams of symbolism they located in my chart. They held the space with a beautiful calm authority, so that even from the other side of the world I felt seen and safe. Another reason I felt safe and contained, besides their deep knowledge and fun self, is the way their gender expression presents. Patriarchy has made me deeply suspicious of dudes, magical dudes being no exception, but I have also experienced damage at the hands of white witchy women, beginning with the women in my own maternal line. Sitting in vulnerable places with magical women can be really triggering for me, and has contributed to the terror I have felt when accosted by the spirit world. I find it deeply comforting when that binary is jammed."
"It should say a lot that I know the general basics of natal astrology and that Michael still blew me away with their insight and interpretations of my placements. They hold space for you without babying you, allowing for deep self-nurturing and growth during your session. I also greatly appreciated them offering prompts to ponder on after the session as well as books to offer aid in potential challenges revealed by my chart. The warmth they radiate combined with their intellect is unparalleled, and you will leave your session, not just feeling, but knowing your higher self is not as out of your grasp as you thought it was. To cross paths with someone as emotionally, intellectually, and politically engaged as Michael is a gift you should not pass up. I have every intention of working with Michael again in the future."
“Michael is a brilliant and grounded presence, clarifying nuances and grand sweeps of the chart with an embodied grace and generosity. I'm new to understanding my chart and this reading unlocked so much. In the days since, I have been gratefully remembering the grounding meditation we began and ended with. This reading made so many aspects of my life clearer. The way Michael focused on strengths, possibilities, and connections was so affirming and inspiring. The reading showed Michael's clear, deep passion for knowledge and struggles for justice, for example by weaving in the work of bell hooks. I feel really grateful I got the opportunity to have this reading and I'm excited for the ways this new understanding of myself, my chart, and my life will unfold.”
"Michael is the gentle, knowing guide that walks you through your future. Never judgmental or flippant, just a friend that knows something you don’t and is happy to share."
"I had such a lovely session with Michael. From taking me through a very grounding and moving guided meditation to helping me understand aspects of my chart I had never uncovered before, I found our whole time together very nourishing. Michael was incredibly knowledgeable and patient in answering questions throughout. They really took their time in unpacking specific things for me to think though and examine in myself. It was part astrology deep-dive, part counseling, part cleansing, and I will definitely be a return customer."
"Working with you was not only a deeply validating and emotional (multiple layers and types of emotion) experience, it brought hope back into my life. I especially appreciated the centering meditations at the beginning and closing of such an important 90 minute slice of my day, week, month, year! I felt the embodiment practice was necessary, as my mind is nearly always racing and being up in my head would have kept me jumpy and I think maybe even a little defensive, but the practice helped ground me back into my body and therefore intuition. You are incredibly insightful and you have the rare gift of interpreting astrology, as a whole but definitely my personal, natal astrology, to include human social and political movements and for that I am incredibly inspired by. Thank you for this gift and for your wisdom."
“After having such a beautiful experience during my first appointment with Michael, I decided I would gift myself with a solar return reading. Knowing I had some bumps coming in 2020, it was even more important to have Michael walk me through the fire. While the topics weren't always pretty, the compassion and love that delivered these difficult messages was needed more than I knew. This experience was beyond self-care and truly prepared me for some huge transitions in the coming months. I can't express my gratitude for Michael's work and will continue to be a client for years to come.”
"Working with Michael has given me the opportunity to bridge my experience of my body and psyche to the happenings in the skies, in context of my birth chart and also the current and upcoming transits. Michael supported my connecting to the felt sense of several aspects in my chart, and this felt sense has helped me to better know and understand how archetypal energies show up in my body and felt experience. I have learned so much! And I feel deeply resourced and also so curious to continue tracking these inquiries that showed up in our session. Thank you so much for sharing the beauty and power of this practice with me."
"My introduction to astrology years ago was loaded with trauma, so taking a step back into this tradition was a vulnerable one for me. My reading with Michael was nourishing, transformative, and deeply healing. They guided me through my chart with such care, affirmation, and clarity. In our email communications beforehand, they were extremely helpful and flexible, answered all my questions, and worked with me to make sure the reading felt safe. I am awed by their insights and appreciative of their integration of a justice-oriented lens. Overall, the reading left me feeling empowered and loved. I feel more access to my gifts, clarity around my challenges, and belonging in the world. Thank you."
"As someone who has a lot of concerns and questions about hard aspects and transits in my chart, I was a bit apprehensive going in. I was immediately impressed by Michael's knowledge and approach. They engaged me on the practical applications of the archetypes combined with how to work with the transits in my chart. I had never explored a T-square with another astrologer before. Overall the zoom session was a beautiful and magical experience that I 100% recommend to others. Michael is a truly gifted astrologer with the most magical of minds and warmest of hearts."
"Michael's thorough, integrated, and grounded year-ahead reading clarified and prioritized a tremendous amount of information in an insightful and compassionate exchange. Because we had worked together before, Michael was able to draw on themes in my chart and project those through the year's reading to help identify and articulate opportunities for both healing and growth. I can't thank Michael enough for this gift. Michael's ability to synthesize multiple techniques is dazzling! But I never felt lost or bogged down in the details. Michael's intention and focus helped guide the session to ensure that every insight was both offered and received with grace. Thank you, Michael!"
"My 'year ahead' reading with Michael was a wonderful experience. Their analysis resonated deeply with the challenges that I (and many others) face in this moment and provided useful tools for growth and change beyond it. I especially appreciated the thoughtfulness of the session, which began and ended in ritual. I would highly recommend that anyone looking for insight and clarity about their birth chart book a consultation with Michael, and I hope to do so again very soon."
"My session with Michael J. Morris changed the way I think about myself. Parts of me that felt dormant or suppressed, I now see as sites of immense power that I can challenge myself to tap into. Their work has made me more willing—and even eager—to engage myself as someone I still have much to learn about and from. They helped me to locate myself as a meaningful piece of an interconnected web I am perpetually moved by. I highly recommend their services to anyone seeking to see themselves and the cycles they’re experiencing more clearly."
"After my chart consultation with Michael, I felt validated and energized by our discussion. I was concerned about not being able to clear my mind to receive their messages, but Michael created a protective envelope where I was able to release worldly concerns and focus on their words. Michael gave me valuable insight about my past, both in particular events and overarching patterns. They shared some wonderful wisdom about how to work with my chart, changing and uplifting how I think about certain placements. I also appreciated the inclusion of some future dates of interest, and recommendations for how to work with the strong 12th house energy in my chart. The 12th house is often shrouded in so much confusion and mystery; Michael didn't sugar-coat anything for me. They validated my experiences of loss and grief while sharing insight on to reframe the way I approach those ideas. This experience of being seen and (virtually) held was significant and special as our world endures a global pandemic."
"Until I had a reading with Michael, I didn't understand the extent to which astrology is care work. Michael held space for our reading that was intentional, relational, and powerful. They imparted guidance that clarifies my healing journey. I have immense gratitude for the care that was provided during our session, for the personal knowledge I am left with following it. This was a valuable lesson in something that, I believe, lends great resilience to our communities: that our knowledge-holders are care workers."
"I'm not sure there are adequate words to show my gratitude for Michael and their work. My consultation was one of the most validating experiences of my life. They were able to connect with me on such an intimate level, and I was blown away by the information I was given. Not only did I feel comfortable in their space, but I felt as if they could finish my sentences and had known me for quite some time. If you are thinking about making an appointment and aren't sure, I encourage you to reach out and do it. You are absolutely worth learning such lovely information about yourself and your purpose."
"I had the distinct pleasure of receiving an astrological reading. Michael is easily one of the most knowledgeable and compassionate human beings I've met. Our reading felt very much as if we were both entering into a sacred space together, receiving insight from millennia old traditions. I came away with greater understanding, also feeling validated on a deep and unexpected level. It was a genuinely moving experience. Highly recommend."
"My reading with Michael was liberating in a way that I've rarely experienced in astrology. I've observed this transformative effect for the last several days and I keep waiting for it to wear off. But I have to say, Michael's reading truly shifted my perspective. Their interpretations and respectful suggestions gave me the permission and affirmation I was seeking to expand my sense of self at a pivotal time in my life. I can't thank Michael enough for this gift. I think part of the force of this experience came from the fact that we were able to meet in person. Michael's focus on creating a space for intention and expanded consciousness allowed me to perceive and imagine potentials in my chart that I've never accessed before. And since the reading, new associations and pathways continue to open to me, I'm honestly astounded by this. The reading was clearly grounded in sound and insightful astrological techniques and an artful attention to spirit and heritage. I particularly appreciated the focus on classical and Hellenistic associations and timing. But I think the most important factor was Michael's presence and willingness to serve as an instrument for this art and for my own personal growth. Thank you again, Michael!"
"Reading Tarot with Michael was an absolute privilege. To fully explain their process would not do it justice and Co Witchcraft is something that has to be experienced for oneself. In short, they guided me through some intention setting and visualization and then we drew cards based on questions ascertained through casual conversation. Our whole time together felt like therapy in that Michael’s role was less of an oracle and more of a healer, and everything we undertook was with the objective of care and healing. While we did talk about some esoteric systems and correspondences given the background we share in these areas, I believe that Michael’s method of tailoring their work to the querent even down to the structure of the reading makes it accessible to anyone – no prior experience with Tarot required! I was able to take notes that I could reflect on and journal about later and after our time together I felt a sense of calm and clarity that stayed with me for a long time. There was so much to take away and I can’t wait to book another session!"
"In our session together, Michael took great care and attention to analyze my natal chart and invited me to reflect and bring awareness to how some of those themes manifest themselves in my life. Not only were dates for life events very accurate (I hadn’t gone in with the expectation for analyzing dates at all), but the analysis of the chart itself and themes it revealed was very affirming for my own experiences and felt incredibly true to what I have known and felt. In the weeks following my visit with Michael, I have been able to reflect even more and dig deeper into my awareness of chart and its implications/impact on my every day. It has been an incredible guide in decision-making, my relationship with myself, and my relationship with others."
"I recently had a tarot reading with Michael, and it was BY FAR one of the best readings I have ever experienced. Michael is truly a gifted soul, with the ability to deliver meaningful experiences to those who seek counsel. I always feel truly at peace within myself when I engage with Michael in a grounding meditation followed by an awe inspiring ritual. I feel that we are kindred spirits walking parallel trails to the best versions of ourselves."
"The modes of support Michael offers are drawn from across a panoply of cultural practices. Astrology, Wicca, reiki, yoga, tarot, and a long established relationship to body movement practices are among those traditions with which Michael works. Each consultation is constructed with acute sensitivity to offer a holistic breadth of resources to address body, mind, and spirit as coextensive and same. Their guidance through the immense, complex spheres of natal charts, tarot cards, and various approaches to awareness and care for one's body is, it seems to me, clearly motivated by a solid belief in the ways that we might be empowered to make our lived experiences meaningful. For several years, I have used an in depth natal chart reading Michael developed for me as a space to check in on some of the cosmic structures with which to map my life experiences day to day and year to year. Most of all, Michael's curiosity and pleasure in learning each of these techniques at continuously deeper levels recommends them for this work."
"Michael's generous attention to my journey as an artist and moving human has been one of the most constant sources of care and guidance I've ever experienced. For over 20 years, they have helped me connect to my creativity, my own worth and my purpose in the world. Their studied, informed and brilliantly integrated way of providing holistic and multidisciplinary insights to a life path is something I cherish and depend on. Michael personally invests in my artistic and spiritual development, and I'm so deeply grateful for their love, sensitive expertise and embodied presence in my life."
"The conversations we've had about astrology have added dimension and depth to my life. Michael's analysis of my natal chart was a combination of lovingkindness and analytical rigor that has helped me feel empowered to take ownership of my own story."
"I have had the great fortune to know Michael as a dear friend, colleague, artistic advisor, energy worker, and astrological chart reader; in my experiences with them in these capacities, I always feel seen and heard and as though I have a companion who is journeying with me as I navigate the complexities of life, who helps me consider multiple perspectives, reflects back to me, and shares new insights. After each interaction or encounter with Michael, I feel I can live into more of myself and am reminded of the interconnectedness of life."
