Chinese Polestar Astrology

Chinese Polestar Astrology, aka Zi Wei Dou Shu or Purple Star Astrology is a traditional, Song dynasty Chinese method based in Daoist and Confucian thought which Anne studied with Liu Ming for 12 years. Individual readings help us understand our unique qi flow related to the greater, interconnected cycles of qi. Learn about your character and fate patterns based on your birth time and place.

Individual natal/transit sessions are offered on a sliding scale around $200; couples/family readings slide around $300.

To schedule a Polestar astrology reading, direct inquiries to Anne at 510.671.1370.
