"My experience with Michael was enormously impactful and meaningful. Michael creates such an open and accepting space during their sessions. Those are increasingly hard to come by in today’s world so, at the most basic level, being able to enter and exist in such a space even temporarily was a gift. Beyond that, Michael is a master at not only reading your astrology but explaining and unpacking it in a way that you can understand regardless of your level of familiarity with astrology. Their approach is so broad and expansive, I left my session feeling like the universe had opened up for me. This was very significant to me as I have left experiences with other astrologers feeling the exact opposite—that the universe and my options within it were actually quite limited. I think a key reason for this difference is that Michael's approach is not prescriptive. Rather it is rooted in dialogue, collaboration, and genuine empathy. I honestly cannot recommend them highly enough. It’s both thrilling and inspiring to witness someone walking so firmly and beautifully in their purpose."
"I was so grateful for this session with Michael - for their wisdom, generosity and clarity. They were one of the most knowledgeable astrologers and healers I have seen, and held nuance beautifully and in a grounded way. I highly recommend a session with them."
"I've seen a trusted astrologer for several years now, but when I heard Michael on The Astrology Podcast, I was eager to connect and hear how they would interpret my chart. The meditation at the beginning of our session was incredibly nourishing and really set the stage for our deep dive together. Not only was the reading on point and insightful, but I felt really seen and held during our time together. I will absolutely be back for more!"
"I loved my first session with Michael. The reading was specific and organized in a way that I could easily digest the information. At the same time, they made a number of points that deeply illuminated areas of my life that hadn’t been explored in other astrological readings over the years. They also made a variety of helpful recommendations for practical approaches for working with what could be challenging aspects, and they gave me opportunities to reflect and ask questions. I appreciated their close attention and care in responding to all I shared and asked, and I finished the session feeling seen, hopeful, and empowered."
"Inside of our session, Michael recognized all parts of me. I felt fully seen and accepted. They offered a map of me to me.
Leaving the session, I feel more capable to meet the change I am navigating. Michael is a profound healing artist. I am so grateful."
"My session with Michael was a sacred container of light, love and spirit. I learned so much more about my birth chart, even more about astrology, including the asteroids and fixed stars. But beyond that, the reading was a mutual exchange of authentic energy. It felt expansive and nourishing, as well as informational and instructive. I can't wait to book my next reading, to keep learning, to go deeper and (re)imagine all that's possible with my own life path and with astrology. Thank you so much, Michael! You are a gift."
"I feel so loved and cared for by Michael. The work of astrology and self-inquiry can be challenging and confusing. With Michael's help, I felt a deep connection with all cosmic bodies, which is always there for us, but it can be so beautiful to recognize and appreciate that connection together."
"I am someone who seeks a lot of support - astrological and otherwise - to help provide perspective and re-orientation. Lately, I have been trying to get clear on the expectations I bring into such sessions and whether these ultimately support or hinder my ability to be present to the conversations that unfold in real time. While my grapple with the question is ongoing, my reading with Michael lives as a beautiful example of what is possible in a healing consultation. Michael was able to bring us together for a grounded exchange of relaxed intimacy and depth, building out a container that welcomed the relevant pieces of my past/present/future into a prism of earnest reflection, contemplation, and gentle direction setting. Tender interpersonal dynamics that surfaced were very skillfully navigated, held with care and warm curiosity. I came into the reading with an anxious, confusing bunch of knots and departed with a kind of tapestry of possibilities, feeling refreshed and renewed to continue on the path that lay ahead of me."
"After several years of following Michael's work and being astounded at the way they share the weaving of the world, stars and us, I finally booked my first reading with them. The way Michael creates & holds spaciousness, offers endless brilliance, wisdom and knowledge about the stars, and weaves the complexities and intricacies of our humanness is an awe I find myself sitting in. It is so clear the kind of commitment, devotion and care that they have developed towards their craft. They seamlessly create a web between you, your chart, the stars, the world, liberation, mythology, while opening a space for curiosity and for your own storytelling to emerge in such a full, entangled way. This reading was everything I could have asked for and left me feeling more settled in the knowing that we truly are exactly where we find ourselves. Thank you."
"I have wanted to dip my toes in astrology for a couple of years but, knowing nothing about it, was always too nervous to try it. Finally I told myself that if I happened to find the right person to guide me, I would jump in. Well as soon as I found Michael, I knew I had discovered that person. And I jumped! And I am so glad I did. Our first session completely transcended all my expectations. Michael was warm, grounding, positive, and compassionate. Their deep knowledge, kindness, and curious heart made me feel completely at ease and comfortable as I entered the ancient realm of the stars. Every aspect of my chart that we discussed illuminated my life path in profound ways. Throughout the session, I just kept thinking, wow, wow, wow! Overall, our first session has left me feeling incredibly grounded, connected to a deeper lived experience, and, most of all, reminded that I have a whole and significant life to live. I feel deep gratitude for having found Michael and for the generosity with which they share their wisdom."
"I feel so much gratitude to Michael and the reading they provided. It is hard to describe into words, except to say it was a beautiful, magical experience. I am very new to astrology and felt apprehensive about what the experience would be, but also very curious and came at it with an open heart and mind. From the beginning Michael made me feel very present, and by the end of the reading I felt really connected to them, because they really laid out who I was or have the capacity to be. As soon as they started going over the aspects of my birth chart it felt like such a natural flow. More than anything it was an affirming and validating experience for me. There were things that were shared in the chart that I have always felt, but had a lot of doubt, and it provided a lot of clarity for me. There is one thing I can't forget and it was the 'weaving of tapestries' that showed up for me. I actually wrote my masters thesis on the power of indigenous women weaving tapestries to convey their stories. I have always felt like a weaver of multiple stories and identities, with everything I've come across. I find myself going back to reflecting about the reading and feel very grateful for the deeper awareness it created."
"This was my second reading with Michael and again I walk away from it feeling calm, grounded in myself and my path, more attuned to where I am metaphorically, psychically, spiritually, emotionally and physically. Things (life!) have been quite a rollercoaster this past year and Michael's astrological reflections made it all make sense. It's not a fortune telling situation. Just guidance with grounded knowledge, conveyed with a depth of compassion and sweet soulful knowing. Understanding the macro of secondary progressions and where I'm going in a ten year lunar cycle, plus the micro of this next year and phase is supporting me to be courageous in certain hard decisions. Michael's gentle guidance and safe container space enable me to reflect and understand deeply, below all the noise. Their intuitive awareness means they are able to bring exactly the right quotes into our session and we finished on such a profound note. It's a magical high point of each lap around the sun to work with Michael and I'm already looking forward to next year's reading in 11 months, ha!"
"I can’t tell you how powerful and illuminating the session was for me. It was incredibly affirming and educational and simply special. I’m so appreciative of your talent and the deep care you bring to this work. I know what you shared will impact me for months to come and I look forward to working with you again soon. Thank you."
"My reading with Michael with clarifying and affirming. As an astrology student, I've looked at my chart countless times. I was astounded by the new layers of meaning and insight Michael offered. There were many ahha moments. Perhaps most helpful was seeing a new pathway in an area of life where I have felt stuck. Indeed, when I look at my chart, I've wondered if the situation is hopeless. But Michael's skill and incredible ability to bring relevant context to my chart given today's socio-political climate offered a fresh lens and potential areas to explore and lean into for fulfillment. Also incredible is their amazing ability to share relevant stories, myths and quotes to bring various placements to life. I'm very appreciative of Michael and the skill and poetry with which they approach their craft. I look forward to my next reading."
"my gratitude for your work and our session together is deep in my body. from the moment you began with a grounding meditation, tears of belonging and understanding pooled in my eyes. in a time of massive transition in my life, your words grounded me knowing i'm making the right decisions by seeing them aligned with the stages and happenings in my chart. your seemingly unending knowledge in astrology, queer studies, and movement/dance spaces never ceases to amaze me, while providing me with hope and assurance that i am not alone, that i have never been alone. thank you thank you thank you."
"The word that can sum up my experience with Michael is 'Scrabble': I came with this board game and all the pieces (some I didn't know I have) and we turned them into words, sentences, and even stories together. By 'we', I meant Michael definitely doing more scrabbling work, weaving letters together, and aligning them with the stars' location on the board. Meanwhile, throughout the time, I felt comfortable and safe enough to unpack my letters, playfully fiddled & shuffled the pieces, and shared what my vision informed me ('A' can look like 'V' and 'V' can be a number 5 in Latin after all). Thank you Michael for offering the wisdom of the stars and potential hidden words while encouraging me to hold ownership of my story. Can't wait for our next story!"
"I wanted to express how grateful I am for the reading you gave me. Throughout our time together, I felt so deeply seen and held by your presence, wisdom, and knowledge. I particularly appreciated how your devotion to the craft translated so effortlessly into language that illuminated parts of my consciousness I had always felt, but didn't always have the courage to name. I felt this incisive quality to your reading that paradoxically really expanded my inner awareness.
Since our conversation, I've begun to have deeper conversations with my partner around our relationship. These conversations are still at the baby stage and we haven't landed on a collective strategy, but I'm already noticing a more easeful flow in our interactions and how we connect to one another. A part of me is confused that my willingness to be honest and authentic with him is actually bringing us closer together, but of course, it makes sense. Thank you for your encouragement to look at the shame I've held around my desires for creating containers that fit me better in my relationships.
I look forward to continuing to work together."
"I highly recommend working with Michael to get your readings done (both birth chart and year ahead). I have done both and I love the care and intention that Michael provides in the time that we spend together. The messages always hit home and seem to land in the way that I need to hear them. They are greatly skilled at never imposing their own thoughts onto you - instead, guiding you through loving self-investigation to let you make up your own mind about how to move forward. I am grateful that Michael exists in the world."
"Michael's guidance is both intuitive and structured in a way that pertains specifically to the circumstances of the client. It is not prescriptive and gets the client to sit with questions and ponder them through numerous critical angles that will trigger growth, however uncomfortable that might be. It's a view into the unseen parts of their lives to guide us to greater consciousness about how and who we are being the world."
"What a profound, grounding, and affirming experience! I came to this reading in a moment of deep fear, concrete need, and big uncertainty. Michael helped me discern a stabilizing map for moving through the next several years.
Michael's depth of skill is felt in every aspect of the session - they weave a space of welcoming acceptance, astrological history, mythology, witchcraft, grounded values and embodied liberation. I especially appreciated their ability to hold space for the mystery. While providing concrete themes/strengths/lifelines, they gently reminded me of the power in depths we don't know yet, the magic in transformations that have yet to occur. I left the reading feeling a new kind of 'sense' to things, feeling like a whole and complex person...on a path.
The themes Michael shared have been tremendously supportive in the months following the reading - echoing in my heart and body when I feel caught. Their birds-eye view helped broaden my timeline, reminding me of the 'deep structures' and long arcs that I can consciously attend to."
"I was fortunate enough to have a session with Michael moving through the major parts of my birth chart. They delicately wove together a story of oft overlooked histories in astrology, mythology, and queer theories validating my lived experience through the birth chart. They made me feel safe, comfortable, and seen as I work to align with my greater purpose here in this tangible world."
"My first reading with Michael J. Morris was clarifying and deeply affirming. Michael held space for who I am and want to be, while prompting with kindness and seamlessly folding my current preoccupations or narrative fragments shared throughout the session into a wider constellation. Imparted with new theoretical and narrative touchpoints and rich with beautiful symbolism, I've left the space of the reading inspired and with a clarified roadmap of myself and a clearer outline of how to approach with conviction multiple aspects of my life."
"Michael brought such care, thoroughness, and deep knowledge to our reading. I have worked with many other astrologists previously and have often felt that the information I received, while fascinating, was a little too scattered or overwhelming to process. From the email before the session to the grounding meditation to start our session to the plan for the session itself, Michael infused our meeting with a wonderful thoughtfulness. Combined with their deep knowledge of a multiplicity of astrological systems and approaches, they were able to provide me with a reading that embodied the care & clarity I have been seeking. I also loved the queer activist lens that infused their interpretations! They shared new astrological perspectives I had never encountered before and new ideas about natal placements and transits — and how I might relate to, or work with, them — that were both intriguing and useful. I walked away with some really exciting new tools and ideas for navigating my life. I would highly recommend!!"
"To have a consultation with Michael is to take a slow and poetic dive into your deep self. Michael not only knows the subject, but they deliver it in a structured and meaningful way. I am very happy with my experience with them!"
"Michael is simply the best. They listen and speak with generosity, kindness, and honesty while sharing their expertise gracefully. I could not recommend them highly enough."
"My session with Michael reminded me of the magic of self-trust, the wisdom of the body and that the more-than-human world is here for us and asking to be in relationship. I find myself reflecting on words and themes a month later and witnessing some profound transformations in my awareness around them. The care and compassion that Michael conveys creates such a comfortable container to explore areas that may at times feel challenging or hard to put words to. I am so grateful for Michael’s feminist, embodied approach to astrology and would highly recommend them to anyone with an interest in exploring their chart."
"Michael is such a skilled practitioner that booking a session with them is worth the opening meditation / grounding practice alone. Thank you for not only clarifying the time period I’m growing through but holding the complexity of my being and providing a sense of scope and balance for me to orient toward changing cycles. It is an honor to work with you. I always feel safe, excited and deeply seen. Till next time Michael, Thank you."
"Michael is a gem, both as a person and as an astrologer. It's a real joy to spend time talking to someone who is deep, self-aware, and shares pertinent information freely, with love. In addition to being an all-around awesome human, Michael is one of the most talented astrologers out there. Their knowledge of charts and planetary movements is deep and well-studied, but the best part is how Michael connects the dots to give you real insight into how things are playing out. It's real information you can use!"
"I really appreciated how Michael put effort into making the space feel as safe as possible, also with the help of some beautiful grounding work at the beginning of the session. The session with them gave me great reassurance concerning the path that I'm on and the challenges I'm facing on it. They helped me establish meaning in my struggles which in turn makes it easier to accept myself in them and externalize some of the influences. They brought their background in feminism and their systemic knowledge into this discussion in a very fitting way which I was grateful for. Also, they gave me clarity about what was unfolding in my astrology in the year ahead. In that, they were very skilled at outlining the core essence of the time and then weaving it together with different layers of astrological events but keeping the big picture coherent. Thanks, Michael, for this insightful and enriching experience and for making me feel seen. I'm looking forward to future sessions."
"I truly enjoyed my Solar Return reading with Michael so much. I showed up to the consultation space with about 1700 different things on my mind & heart that I wanted to share, and Michael was great at giving me the space to air it all out and be fully heard. I expressed early on in the session that I was feeling an unclear path about a certain aspect of my life/chart, and through what we discussed in the session, and through their incredible reflective listening skills, they reflected back to me that I actually have already drawn and illuminated the path towards what I want and am already creating alongside that purpose, so I can keep trusting in its direction. I also appreciated the time we took to set a safe energetic container for us both that invited in guides, ancestors & important spirits to assist us in the work. They also provided me with resources to look into, and they did a great job at assessing the quality of my year ahead and simplifying it into a few highlight moments to focus on. I appreciate you and your craft so much Michael! Looking forward to being in your consulting space again someday."
"i've been michael's client for three years now and can no longer imagine my birthday without our annual reading. michael is incredibly knowledgeable but it's their way of practicing astrology that makes readings so memorable. their approach is collaborative, intuitive, and seamlessly weaves astrology together with feminist (and especially feminist of color) writings, wisdom from mentors, and more. add the fact that michael is a highly skilled--and soulful--listener and facilitator! their way of holding space makes room for free-flowing exchange, which, for me, gives rise to the realizations i need to have in that moment. i re-listen to our session many times throughout the year; i learn something new every time and am always delighted by michael's genuine excitement about my chart and the celestial beings that inform my/our life."
"Michael's mastery of astrology and Greek mythology is unparalleled. I was blown away by my reading and the profound insights they shared. I deeply appreciate Michael for helping me access a greater understanding of who I am, the values that guide me, the shape my life has taken thus far, and what lies ahead. Their reading will leave you feeling affirmed, grounded, and overflowing with gratitude. This was the most resonant reading I've experienced to date, and I cannot recommend Michael enough to anyone looking to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their life."
"It's natural to feel a little nervous at the beginning of an astrology reading, but with Michael those nerves dissolve almost immediately with their warmth and authenticity. I felt very welcomed and was led gently into the experience with a grounding visualisation that brought me more into presence, relaxation and openness. I was really impressed with Michael's skill in holding a safe, compassionate and non-judgemental space in which to have the conversation around the questions that I had raised. Michael gave me some invaluable insights into my chart and raised some really rich questions for my own further reflection. I appreciated the way they wove in the stories from mythology that were particularly relevant to my chart, allowing me to reflect on how those stories are also my stories in part. I also appreciated the thoughts and reflections from their extensive reading of feminist authors. I found it very affirming to receive some perspective on my character and life, in a way that affirms both a larger purpose (call it divine intelligence / fate / destiny) and agency in becoming more of who I am. Michael has a very special ability in making you feel acknowledged and 'seen'. They encourage a dialogue and I found them to be very attentive in listening to what I said and responding to the very specific points I made. I felt that Michael was well-prepared for the session, which facilitated a natural and seamless flow of conversation. As the session came towards the end, I was given an opportunity for any further questions before the session was beautifully closed - full-circle - with another short grounding ritual. This is not just an astrology reading - it's a whole experience - and I highly recommend it."
"My meeting with Michael was much more than I expected. I immediately felt at ease and sensed such warmth and authenticity from them. They were genuinely enthusiastic about discussing my chart and engaging with me in such a way that helped me feel safe, and undoubtedly enriched the reading. A fantastically intuitive person and truly gifted astrologer, Michael not only broadened my perspective but gave me deeply valuable insights into myself and astrology. The experience was more than I can articulate. I just adore Michael's spirit and what they do, and I am so grateful for this experience that was both fun and moving! I know I will be a client of theirs as long as possible."
"My session with Michael was such a treat! Starting with an incredibly profound and nourishing grounding exercise really set the tone for the rest of the session, and helped me access some parts of myself that have been more buried and obscured due to the hustle and bustle of early parenthood. Moving on to the astrology part, Michael was able to describe the larger cycles I'm moving through with a lot of clarity and depth, making me feel very excited about the stage I am currently at. As a fellow astrologer I've been watching my transits and progressions for a while, but it was incredibly helpful to have Michael's perspective and to spend this time together to make sense of some of the events and changes that might be unfolding. They truly are a source of great wisdom and compassion! I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a healing and grounding experience. Thank you, Michael!"
"My first reading with Michael was an enriching and validating experience I would recommend for anyone looking for the deeper layer within a natal consultation. Michael’s knowledge of the asteroids and contemporary art landscape were highly impactful in my personal story and their compassion for the endless discoveries of the chart were very felt and grounded in what you can sense is a very strong practice. If you have the opportunity to sit and speak with them, I believe you’d be better for it. Thank you Michael."
"Super grateful for the work Michael shared with me in our initial session. I found their approach to astrology tangible, inclusive, and relevant! Michael didn’t shy away from the spiritual existential topics that was important for my understanding of my life’s journey. Kindly, respectfully, and with some humor I’ve come to accept the major players and themes in my life thanks to their easy to understand way of interpreting the houses, planets, and asteroids. In fact, I had no idea about the asteroids and I was left in amazement at the accuracy and validity of how they show up in my life! Our work together was energetic, mind nourishing, and expansive and I got to know myself better in the process. Very thankful for all the information I received, I know I’ll be pondering, processing, and exploring for some time to come!"
"Our session was so healing for me. The information you gave me opened up a new way of perceiving my current life situation. I feel more at ease, reassured. I also loved talking to you. Your way of sharing and connecting with me felt safe and nurturing, but also really fun and expansive.
I listened to the recording again today and cried many times ... tears of joy though. Listening to you focus on my strengths and potential rather than only my weaknesses felt like a breath of fresh air from the Saturnian energy I have been facing. I got more out of our session than my 10 years in therapy. And yes, actually 10 years LOL!"
"Thank you, Michael for the amazing session! I’ve had written reports from other sources but you brought up concepts that had never been mentioned but SPOT ON! It took me a few days to assimilate all the information so I was very grateful for the recording of the reading. Events and behaviors were further understood so there is more clarity of how choices were made and greater learning for future choices. Thank you so much for the enlightening session!"
"Michael's gift lies in connecting the body, mind and spirit in ways that caters really well to my overwhelmed, overworked academic mind, that has desperately been seeking other ways of being. Michael is able to reflect on material conditions and realities and connect them very well to what shows up in one's natal chart, and how certain aspects of the chart can manifest in the real world. They are not judgmental about your life trajectory, and are interested in how astrological transits can show/contribute to your overall growth as a person, in an outcome independent way - although, there is also the space to hold one's desire in the midst of all this. Highly recommend Michael's services for anyone who lives complex lives outside established trajectories!"
"Michael’s annual readings have taught me so much about astrology during the last several years. The past year has probably been one of my most conscious and productive – in no small part thanks to the guidance I received in Michael’s readings. I have learned so much from Michael about synthesizing Hellenistic timing techniques, transits, and thoughtful reflection on life events. I’ve been an astrology enthusiast for decades now but working with Michael has opened a whole new world of depth for me, and I am very thankful for that. I also want to add something I shared with Michael in our reading. I am deeply appreciative of Michael’s open and grounded approach to “difficult” transits and natal placements. In every conversation, I feel Michael’s deep commitment to affirming the dignity and validity of our human experience in all its varied manifestation. I just felt so deeply seen and heard and affirmed again this year in our reading, and I will be forever grateful for that. Thank you, Michael!"
"I have now had the pleasure of working with Michael three times, and each session has been a yearly highlight. Michael creates such a safe, non-judgmental container rooted in care that really allows for deep exploration and learning. And they are simply an astrology genius!! The way they weave and draw from various techniques always feels so intentional and loving. They listen deeply and respond with warm intuitive expertise. Michael's passion for everyone to be able to gain insight and wisdom from their chart is contagious, and I have left each session feeling inspired, excited and extremely grateful. Working with Michael is truly a gift, one I cherish dearly."
"Michael Morris is a gift to the world. They bring extraordinary intellect, deep experience and research to an astrology session that is also healing and inspiring. My session with them gave me concrete information to support the year ahead and helped clarify some areas of my life and practice where I needed to listen more to my inner voice. I so appreciate Michael's emotional intelligence, trauma-sensitive ethics of care, and wide references including queer ecology, Black feminist philosophy, artistic and embodied practices, and intersectional politics. I recommend them to anyone seeking insight and connection to your inner voice and personal journey. I'm going to make it a quarterly practice of self care to connect with Michael if they have availability, feels like the best life coach ever."
"Getting my birth chart read with Michael was a wonderful experience. It was a collaborative reading in which we shared our knowledge (my knowledge of myself and Michael’s knowledge of the stars) to create a blueprint of my life’s journey. I gained understanding and reverence for the person I was born as, and I left the session feeling validated, happy, and connected to the larger workings at play (god, spirit, universe, whatever it may be). Michael is easy to talk with and put me at ease right away. They were also able to suggest books and readings that may be relevant to my life, which I found helpful. I will be seeking out more offerings from Michael and telling my community about their work. Thank you, Michael!"
"I have had many consultations but none like my session with Michael. I really appreciate opening the session with first grounding connecting to our roots of ancestry, centering and moving up to the highest stars of zenith. This is important, as some who come to astrology may have not yet encountered breathwork, visualization or meditation. I also appreciate Michael's preparation, attention to detail, and diversity in Astrological techniques (adding asteroids). There was an unspoken mutual understanding of the real life pain that comes with the oppositions and squares of life, I appreciate their delicacy. Nonetheless, I was also able to laugh with them and thoroughly enjoyed my session. Mahalo me ke aloha, Michael."
"A session with Michael is both informative and delightful, something hard to achieve these days! Their deep knowledge of astrology coupled with intuitive interpretation that's tailored to your context will help you think differently. It's invaluable guidance as we navigate our world."
"Michael is a clear-spoken reader and attentive listener who used their gifts to provide an active, engaged and insightful conversation about my chart. They answered my questions in a straightforward way and their ability to communicate deep and relevant connections between my concerns and chart dynamics helped me feel understood and supported. The consultation exceeded my expectations in its depth, transparency and insight, and I’ve recommended Michael to my astrology-interested friends. If you similarly seek guidance, I wholeheartedly encourage you to reach out and schedule a reading."
"I was really thrilled to have a session with Michael, my first ever natal chart reading. Our time together met and exceeded my expectations. Michael's friendly and conversational style is a great fit for me. I found it easy and comfortable to connect with them, which kept me feeling grounded and present throughout the session. I'm still at the very beginning of exploring the breadth of knowledge Michael offered me, and look forward to those seeds we planted taking root and growing into fully formed revelations and stories. In the week since our session I have felt reinvigorated to continue learning how to better meet my own very specific needs, on a daily basis as well as planning long term. I hope this will be the first session of many. My time with Michael felt deeply resonant, needed, and so worthwhile."
"Working with Michael a second time was even more enlightening than the first. My knowledge of astrology is more limited to the basics, so exploring the coming year felt outside my usual application and was somewhat intimidating. Michael again made the experience extremely accessible, conversational and open. Their ability to use astrology to guide thoughts and patterns, consider dialectic ideas and explore how we might live richer lives with more insight into ourselves and the world around us left me feeling both engaged and restored. I can't recommend it enough."
"My natal chart reading with Michael was illuminating and transformative. The breadth and depth of their knowledge helped me understand the wisdom and possibility in my chart, and feel less subject to the whims of the universe. Michael contextualized my chart to better translate its meaning, and drew from many mythologies, movements, and arts. As an Aquarian, I loved the union of the ancient and contemporary. Michael's warmth and sincerity allowed me to drop deeper into the space and leave feeling supported and nurtured. Thank you so much!"
"Consulting with Michael has become a process that I so look forward to, and I hope to continue for many years. Michael’s attention to presence and embodied awareness really supports me to approach astrology from a place of wholeness, and an awareness of the many alive relationships (interpersonal, elemental, and cosmic) that I am inherently a part of. Looking at the year ahead has given me a grounding and energetic scaffolding to work with as I look forward. I feel like I am carrying a few secret keys for moving forward, so when I get to those uneasy doors I have some language and willingness to move through them and towards my soul’s calling."
"After glowing reviews from a close trusted friend, I decided to schedule an astrological consultation with Michael. I wasn't sure what to expect overall, but to say that I walked away afterwards with a new understanding of myself would be an understatement.
They were able to identify key turning points in my life, and advise not only when, but the possible why due to my chart. This insight and clarity was invaluable, and will guide some decisions that I make in my future.
Michael has a gift and I feel honored that they shared it with me. Their knowledge and delivery of it was like no other reading that I've had previously. Although this was first session with them, it felt like I was talking to an old friend. I'm looking forward to our next session together."
"It is clear that Michael’s knowledge and skills are expansive, but their true superpower is in their gentle presence, the way they leave room for discussion between each and every point and their empathy. Coming in contact with Michael always leaves me in awe and deep gratitude for the work they do, but also and most importantly for how they embody their work in the spaces they enter (and I have only met them online, I hope this changes soon though!). It is so easy to feel comfortable around them (this is coming from a Scorpio moon and 4th house Sun). After this reading, I feel seen & held. I feel ready to root in the rich soil of my world while following the wisdom of the stars they unlocked during our session. Thank you so much Michael, I am so grateful to have been able to receive a reading from you and be able to follow your work. And I hope that anybody doubting about getting a reading from Michael will allow themselves to receive such gift.”
"Going through my astrological charts with Micheal is always a pleasure! Good astrology is nuanced, and Michael finds even deeper nuance. Their approach is interdisciplinary and centered in wisdom, compassion, and solidarity. I feel elated and affirmed after our sessions."
"Michael read my birth chart with a deep understanding of my placements and such a generous heart. In areas of my life and self where I saw mostly opposition or struggle, Michael reminded me of the seeds waiting to grow toward the light. I felt wonderfully grounded during the zoom session with them, thanks to their skillful use of meditation and ritual at the beginning. Last but not least, they blew me away with their knowledge of different asteroids and how these placements shape my chart. Even if you’re a total astrology geek already and think you know your chart well enough, Michael will take you by the metaphorical hand and lead you to a few more hidden treasures within."
"I feel how I am adopting the new insights and I am very grateful for the guidance and wisdom around me you helped me to connect with. Thank you for your wonderful work.
I was searching for concrete answers and I am both surprised and not that they showed up in the consultation.
The safe space that you created helped me a lot to open up for this experience that still resonates within me.
When I tried to describe it, I found that it wasn’t so easy to put it into words - I think that’s awesome."
"I came into my first session with Michael with a general knowledge of astrology and some questions as to how relevant or actionable my chart could be in my life. During our session, not only did they establish a collaborative, safe and values-centric space (not easy to do virtually!), but they also shared their wisdom with me in a way that allowed me to actively participate - not just to receive information. Michael weaves storytelling, current events and personal anecdotes into their explanations of complex astrology, making the readings understandable and fun. I left the session feeling affirmed, grounded and with ways to incorporate astrology into my life that feel doable and personal. I cannot recommend them enough!"
“I began to follow Michael in their role as an astrologer and was compelled by their way with words describing the mystery and movement of the planets. I took their Witchdancing workshop for Beltane because I wanted to find an embodied way to honor the midpoint between the equinox and the solstice. I did not really know what to expect. Michael created a space in which all bodies and movements were honored. They emphasized feeling, spontaneity, and trusting the body to lead. Their mastery with words wove just enough direction and imagery to keep me focused, and the pulsing and ethereal music and pace gave ample space for me to unfold slowly over the course of the hour. I don’t think I have ever spent such an amount of time truly in my body, without analysis. It was tremendously freeing. When it was over, I went outside in my backyard and felt as within myself as I have in a long time. Truly grateful for this practice and looking forward to when it is offered again.”
“You provided me crystalline clarity during the most tumultuous time of my life. I had been grappling with a tough transition, and when we closed out our call, a sense of calm came over me and I knew exactly what I needed to do. I felt imbued with a strength that helped me find the direction and confidence I needed within myself to take a significant step to close out a chapter of my life … I also appreciate the perspective you brought to my career, and find myself moving into my week with gratitude for the fulfillment it provides me … For me there is a clear, radiant delineation in my lifeline of before time with Michael Morris and after time with them.”
"Beyond being a delight, working with Michael was a deeply affirming experience. We have similar trajectories into studying astrology (though I've always been more of an enthusiastic amateur), which meant that Michael was speaking a language I am very familiar with—but they offered it back to me in such a way that from long-standing confusions came real threads of clarity—and gentle clarity for issues around death, grief, trauma and family is meaningful beyond the words I have to describe it. I appreciated how Michael moved with me as we zeroed-in on my real questions, and how they folded in asteroids and myth for incredibly meaningful nuance to themes in my chart I've contemplated for years already (the asteroids unlocked underworld stories we wouldn't have touched otherwise). The way Michael wove in sacred texts, arts and rituals from outside the sphere of astrology was a lovely invitation for me to integrate into my daily life the insights we uncovered together."
“My reading with Michael was incredibly affirming, grounding, and insightful as we explored various facets of my chart—some of which I’d already been familiar with and others which were newer to me (this was my first time meeting with an astrologer who incorporated asteroids!). When touching upon the subject of personal loss, Michael tenderly navigated discussing the culmination of aspects occurring during the specific date of my loss while also bringing their personal experience into it with recommendations for some healing tools that I’d not been aware of previously. I’d greatly recommend their services to anyone looking for a deeper understanding of themselves and am so grateful for the spiritual guidance I received during my session!”
"It has been an absolute joy to explore my birth chart and the layered wonders of astrology with Michael. Michael brings a deep well of embodied, emotional, historical, mythological and intuitive knowledge to their work, facilitating a layered and nuanced astrology experience. Having worked with Michael twice, I'm touched by the level of care and attention they bring to the sessions, remembering comments I made a year prior and creating a supportive environment to explore with a frame of possibility and joy. It's a delight to work with someone who so clearly has deep alignment and purpose in this work. I plan to continue to dig into my chart with Michael and recommend them most highly to anyone who is seeking brilliant, grounded, supportive, and wise accompaniment in astrological discovery."
"Michael is a truly gifted astrologer. Precise, compassionate, and inspiring are just a few words I can use to describe how I found Michael in my reading. I feel extremely affirmed that who I am is reflected in my chart – that my feelings about myself, the ways that I have navigated my path, are in alignment with the planets, the stars, the asteroids, and the many cosmic bodies that make up me. Michael has offered me a perspective on my self and my work in the world that will positively impact me for a lifetime."
"In their consults, Michael has a distinct way of making me feel seen, heard, and cared about. I gain a broader sense of myself and the more than human world and the ways in which cosmic alignments hold new potentialities. I am always left with meaningful questions to consider throughout my year that support the kind of growth that moves me toward fuller becoming."
"As someone with limited knowledge but deep interest in astrology, I benefited greatly from Michael's guidance. They shared deep insight that didn't feel overwhelming, made ample time for discussion and questions, created a grounding, loving space to work from and made me feel at home on a zoom call. Michael is extremely gifted at taking what might seem like challenging or difficult parts of a chart and finding the beauty in them, offering perspective on how they can work for us and suggesting tools to incorporate into our lives. Michael made me feel safe, vulnerable and cared for through their reading, and gave me lots of perspective on my chart that I've never considered, even incorporating time work through the profection year and secondary progression chart. I hope to meet with Michael again soon to dig even deeper. I can't recommend a session with them enough."
"I have worked with Michael on three occasions, twice around my birthday. I think of my birthday as my second new year and working with Michael around this time is such a wonderful way to refocus and go deeper. Michael is always so well-prepared and so thoughtful. I always feel cared for and held in the space while we work together. I hope to work with Michael every year."
"Michael's generous knowledge and compassion for the queer experience made me feel at home. Especially, our conversations on 4th and 7th house topics (family of origin; partnerships) were facilitated with the familiarity of a friend and the competency of a true artist. I am a lover of homework, and I was given much to work with! I would recommend Michael's astrological work to the chatty ones, the studious, and the deep feelers amoung us."
"My session with Michael was so clarifying and grounding. They wove many different cycles, timing and stories together that helped orient me more thoroughly to where I am right now and what's ahead. They hold space with a lot of generosity, kindness and empathy; and it was a pleasure and a healing to be on the receiving end of their skilled attention."
"I am so grateful I found Michael’s beautiful and inspiring work at Co Witchcraft Offerings Astrology. As a caveat, I am a self-taught amateur student of astrology, aka astrology-geek – thus I am familiar with many amazing astrologers out there these days. But upon finding Michael via Instagram, I knew immediately this was someone unique who I wanted to work with on a deeper level – their presence and wisdom rose above much of the noise that can sometimes bring more confusion than clarity. Through my individual astrology reading with Michael, we focused on my solar-return chart as well as secondary progressions. I received tools and resources that I will use for months (years) to come, in more profound ways than I have experienced from other professional astrology readings. I think the experience was different because of Michael’s truly divine way of creating and holding an authentically grounding space throughout the session. I not only felt deeply seen, but simultaneously could more clearly see myself. I not only experienced their wisdom, but was able to tune in to my own wise voice within. What truly amazing gift Michael’s work is to this world at this time. I am so grateful for the ways this reading has helped me to see and unpack the gifts I am bringing (and will bring) to this world as well."
"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."
