Consultations

For teenagers from age 13-14 onwards

wkshps-zodiacDuring this chapter of life, you as a budding person find yourself in a profound learning phase. You’re thinking about life, the universe, who you are and how you fit into it all… or perhaps how you don’t!  Whatever, you might love having an astrological session with me.

You’ll get honest responses to your thoughts and questions and a recognition of who you really are.

You’ll get ideas and insights that your parents, teachers and the people around you might not be able to give.

An astrological chart is like a box full of treasures, clues to help you on your journey through life. It’s like a map of who you are, and an astrologer can help you decode it.

It will be okay to share your secrets and innermost thoughts because an astrological session with me is absolutely confidential – and, if you wish, you don’t ever have to meet me again!

Though actually, most of the teenagers who’ve had sessions with me do check in again – but that’s been their own choice.

What happens?

The session, up to two hours, will be recorded and sent to you as an MP3 file to keep and listen to when you need. It’s entirely up to you whether you let anyone else listen to it – it’s for you, and it’s about your life. You’re in charge!

An astrology session at this point in your life can be a true gift. It clarifies your personal qualities, your strengths and your challenges.

We look at ways to move forward, choices in front of you, things that might be standing in the way and opportunities you might not have noticed.

The idea is to support you in your journey of becoming yourself.  It helps you become your best… and glow.

I particularly enjoy working with people of your age group. A teenage student once told me that they had never heard anyone else put ‘teenagers’ and ‘wonderful’ in the same sentence!

The practical details

birthchart-400
A hand-drawn chart

You will receive a beautiful hand-drawn parchment birth chart if you choose this option (see below for options and prices)

Consultations are usually held in my lovely straw-bale astrology studio at my home on the edge of Buckfastleigh in Devon (not far from the main A38 Exeter-Plymouth road).

Skype or telephone conversations are available if you live further away, or anywhere in the world. If you opt for a hand-drawn birth chart, it will be mailed to you before the consultation.

My charges for consultations

Try to persuade your parents, a relative or someone who likes you, to give you a session for your birthday, Christmas or simply as a gift!

If you’re leaving school and you’re thinking about what happens next (careers, college or adventures), it can be a good time to have your chart done and discuss your options with Lynne.

Initial astrological consultation for teenagers, with hand-drawn birthchart.  This is a 90-100 minute reading with beautiful hand-drawn birth chart and MP3 recording, and you also get a PDF chart that you can keep on your phone. All this costs £70.

Alternative initial consultation, at a lower price, opting for a computer generated chart image on parchment (as opposed to hand drawn), with MP3 recording, and you also get a PDF chart that you can keep on your phone. This costs £60.

Follow-on readings, if you would like to come again – such as a yearly transit session or looking at a specific life-issue. A 90-100 minute astrological update consultation with MP3 recording – £60.

All the above are payable by bank transfer in UK (I’ll send details), by PayPal (I send an online payment request) or, with a face-to-face session, cash at the time. (If paying from abroad by PayPal, I add £3 to cover currency conversion charges.)

What to do next

If you’d like an astrological session, please contact me. Only three things are needed in advance:

  • send me the time, date and place of your birth. If you’re not sure of the time, tell me as much as you know about it, and we’ll work from there.
  • suggest days and times for a session that would work well for you – two or three options would help – and then I shall reply, and we can make an arrangement.
  • tell me whether you’d like a consultation in Buckfastleigh or by Skype or landline. I shall reply with directions or details.

If you have questions about the consultation, let me know and I’ll answer. I won’t need to know your questions or thoughts beforehand. Instead, I shall ask you about this at the beginning of the consultation.


Workshops for Questioning Teenagers

Teenagers’ Astrology and All-about-Life Exploration workshops
– stand-alone and ongoing.

Introduction to the
Twelve Signs of the Zodiac Wheel

zodiac1This stand-alone workshop is specially designed for a thinking teenager like you – with added zest and spark, specially for you!

It’s about all twelve signs of the zodiac and what it’s like being a person from any of those signs. It’s also about you and your zodiac sign.

You’ll find out how different we all can be, and this workshop will also give you some great clues about how to move forward from here.

The workshop also serves as an introduction to the following series, if you find astrology interesting:

Teenagers’ Astrology and
All-about-Life Exploration workshops

A series of workshops for teenagers. These evening workshops last two hours, usually meeting every few weeks over at least a year… with the possibility of continuation!

Lynne’s magic strawbale hut – in the snow!

Workshops take place in my lovely magical straw-bale retreat at my home in Buckfastleigh, Devon, unless we have arranged a workshop or series somewhere else.

Each class is open to a maximum of seven participants. This allows a rich depth and a personal feeling to it. And my astrology studio fits up to seven people really nicely.

We focus on crucial life themes and topics that you as a teenager face in your life. These issues are a curious fusion of fascinating, truth-seeking and exciting!

During these workshops we draw on astrological wisdom to give you a sense of context and meaning in your life. It’s real nourishment for a questing soul like you.

In previous teenagers’ workshop cycles we have focused upon:  leaving childhood behind;  OMG, who am I?;  dealing with change;  personal values and beliefs;  understanding and relating to others who are different to you;  assertiveness and compassion;  boundaries;  dealing with authority;  school, college and future work choices;  relationships with parents and friends;  gender territory;  pacing and balancing different areas of life;  loss and grief;  and, of course, death, sex, drugs and rock and roll!

These issues are explored, picked apart, delved into and discussed in a spirit of openness and curiosity, between everyone in the group.

I greatly enjoy being with teenagers. Yes, some do say “That’s strange“, but I really do. You are inspiring beings with an urge to expand in different areas of life, challenging givens and rules, seeding change and evolution… and sometimes even revolution!

I have raised four teenagers and taught many others during the years I worked with 12-16 year-olds in a Steiner school. I specialised in fashion, design and clothes, which is a wonderful forum in which to explore budding individuality and express it with enjoyment!

You as a young person will have a very real and natural hunger for learning and understanding about life, yet often you might feel you lack a safe space in which to bat issues and ideas around and to be heard, recognised and responded to positively.

alex-6750These Teenagers’ Astrology and All-about-Life Exploration workshops provide a creative safe haven and an inspired melting pot for you to find out more about life.

Each group organically evolves in its own unique way, based on a clear foundational structure that I have developed.

You will learn some astrology as we go along, and we’ll look at your birth charts and get to understand them.

It gets interesting when you see the charts of others in the group too – you’ll see your similarities and differences. If two of you have Venus in Pisces, you’ll see that similarity in the way you are. It’s just fascinating.

Themes of interest or sometimes of burning need arise as we progress. We meet, explore and dance with them. Everyone gets a chance to be heard, to develop their own positions on important questions, and discuss issues with their fellows in the group.

This group begins with an Introduction to the Twelve Signs of the Zodiac Wheel workshop (see above). It’s a wonderful eye-opener, revealing different personality types and ways of approaching life, the universe and everything, as outlined in the zodiac signs.

Naturally it opens up many questions and conversations – usually with a drive and intensity that many grown-ups lost somewhere along the way.

If the group wishes to continue meeting after the first introductory workshop, I then create a format tailored to work for the group. To date, teenage groups have met monthly or fortnightly for a year – and in one case, a group continued for three years! Flexibility and adaptation of the workshop schedule is possible, to meet exam needs and school or college holidays.

Workshops are two hours in duration, usually in my lovely straw-bale garden studio in Buckfastleigh. I encourage lift-sharing, as there are no evening buses to and from my home. These workshops are portable, so please contact me if you are interested in having a group somewhere else.

And…many young people have told me that the delicious home-made chocolate flapjacks are a big plus!

Practicalities

Each two-hour workshop costs £12. We begin with an introductory session on the Twelve Zodiac signs.

If you like it, you can commit to the whole Teenage Astrology and All-about-Life course and order your very own unique birthchart, which I hand-draw on parchment. This costs £15. (There are no other costs occurring during this course beyond the workshop fee).

Usually we meet once monthly for a year. There’s no homework! But… I do encourage you to observe yourself and others, following on from the thought-provoking topic of each workshop. Young people seem to do this quite spontaneously anyway! And when you engage in this way, you will extend and deepen your understanding of life and the way different personalities uniquely approach life and its situations.

Furthering the Journey

If you’ve really enjoyed these workshops, we can go further. There is a follow-up option, which includes looking at more astrology, together with further depth-charging into important and gritty life issues which the group opts to focus upon.

I hope you are inspired to come along! Please contact me if you or your friendship group would like to begin a Teenagers Astrology and All-about-Life workshop, and we can discuss a date to begin. Bespoke groups are my speciality.
