Astrology is an ancient art developed by people who used the sky to navigate on land and sea. The stars were seen as beings/gods who had an influence on our lives here on Earth.
The birth chart is a snapshot of the sky at the time of birth. The placement of planets and asteroids gives information about the person and their life.
Astrologers are trained to ‘read’ that chart, much like someone else reads a map, helping people navigate their life.
The title Wayfinder comes from the book Finding Your Way in a Wild New World: Reclaim Your Wild True Nature to Create the Life You Want, by Martha Beck. I feel that astrology does just that.
Evolutionary Astrology, based on Pluto and the Nodes of the Moon, seeks to answer the questions at the core of the wayfinder quest: "Why am I here?" "What is my purpose?"
Simply put, Pluto represents the desires of the Soul in this lifetime: the South Node: influences from past lives, the North Node: direction of evolutionary growth.
EA, as its practitioners lovingly call it, wants to know what Pluto generation you are in rather than your Sun sign.
"I was at a crossroads when I asked Judy to read my progressed chart. She helped me understand the changes I was feeling, but did not yet understand. Very helpful."

“Getting a reading by Hamida was a fabulous experience. She was thorough, engaging, and real...I felt like I was talking to someone that I have known for a long time (so the level of comfort was awesome!). And I felt “heard” - which for someone with Chiron in Gemini doesn’t happen very often. Walking away from the experience, I am even more clear of what my purpose is on Earth and what I need to “do” with my time here. I could not recommend her or her services enough, as she is fantastic at what she does ❤️”

"Your reading made me feel more like an exceptional human being rather than a deeply flawed one. Thank you for the poem it made me cry."

"Hamida's reading of my astrological chart was a revelation for me. She touched on forgotten events that had happened in my childhood and helped me to understand my role in them, why they happened, on a soul level, and aided me in carving my path for the future with this new knowledge. I have a greater understanding of who I am as a member of the Pluto in Leo Generation, a Baby Boomer, a time that created the unique individual I am, and what my journey and role is. I know we are different from generations that came before and those born after... but why, and what is our job in this lifetime? I became aware also, of my own self sabotage and how it was borne of a lack of mothering in my life. Now I can concentrate on mothering myself to a healthier way of living. The most exciting revelation was my role as a powerful communicator, particularly in writing, and how it is in my "stars" to follow that journey!"
