Rediscover Your Part of the One Living Whole
Perhaps you’ve been struggling to make sense of the circumstances in your life for quite some time now. Maybe you feel stuck in repetitive patterns and are trying to understand why the same things upset you again and again. It could be that you feel like you are fighting your true nature or are looking for purpose and direction.
An astrology reading from EverAfter can offer you a more objective view of the story of your life, recognition of your talents and potentials, and an opportunity for personal and spiritual maturation.
My name is Bethany Ward and I am an Integrative Spiritual Director. The breadth of my work is rooted in guiding you toward an all-embracing response to a life filled with spiritual vibrancy. Blending the spirituality of the mystics throughout the ages; spiritual discernment, contemplation, and Jungian psychology in spiritual direction, I guide spiritual seekers of all ages and backgrounds to discover their place within all of existence. An astrology reading with EverAfter is one method toward knowing yourself and helping your soul through the rediscovery of and connection with the archetypal world.
Astrological planets are archetypal symbols and the natal chart, or birth chart, is a pictorial landscape that may be used on the path toward wholeness.
EverAfter Astrological Readings offer you:
- a lens toward self-understanding
- context for your personal history
- appreciation for your skills and talents
- the sources of your struggles and discomfort
- encouragement and compassion for your journey
- connection to something timeless and beyond yourself
“The collective unconscious appears to consist of mythological motifs or primordial images, for which reason the myths of all nations are its real exponents. In fact the whole of mythology could be taken as a sort of projection of the collective unconscious. We can see this most clearly if we look at the heavenly constellations, whose originally chaotic forms are organized through the projection of images. This explains the influence of the stars as asserted by astrologers. These influences are nothing but unconscious introspective perceptions of the collective unconscious.”-from Carl G. Jung’s lecture “The Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious,” Collected Works.
Astrology has the potential to become an ever-evolving tool by which you may come to understand yourself. Your birth chart is the pictorial landscape of your soul that allows you to observe a narrative larger than your current understanding of the story of your life. My astrological readings provide direction, link the deepest part of who you are to the cosmos, help identify your unique nature and point the way toward spiritual growth.
Astrology readings are compelling if you are looking for:
- insight into your role within your own sacred story
- understanding of issues and circumstances that span a broad scope of time
- awareness of why you are the way you are
- answers to life’s challenges and have previously been unsuccessful in finding them
“God comes to you, disguised as your life.” – Paula D’Arcy
Through your reading, you will learn not only about the turning of the wheel of fate but also how to apply your mystic will within in its movement. Our motivations, impulses, and circumstances of our life are all opportunities to examine the nature of Ultimate Reality and our role within it. Obstacles become teachers and life events become imbued with meaning. As we elevate our Observational Self, we become keenly aware that our lives are not random and unintelligible but part of an elaborate tapestry. Your astrology reading with EverAfter outlines who you are, your strengths and weakness, what you are attracted to and why.
“Astrology represents the sum of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity.” -Carl G. Jung

Astrological readings require your exact date, time, and place of birth.
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
Sessions are held in person for Northeast Ohio residents, or via Skype for the global community.

For nearly two decades, I felt like I was drifting aimlessly through my life. I had developed a bad attitude and worse habits after years of seemingly pointless suffering and a perpetual state of frustration. Yet, a quiet whisper of curiosity to pull a peculiar book from the shelf during a routine trip to the library changed my life forever.
Astrology found me.
I had dedicated my life to a quixotic search for answers about why I existed and why I suffered. In the pages of the first book I read on astrology, I found context and direction for my life. At last, I could see my life as a complete story that had been gently unfolding from the moment of my birth. Wounds that had haunted me for years found meaning and context, and at once were offered healing. In time, the study of astrology allowed me to develop patience and presence for my journey.
No one is sure how astrology works but I now take my place among the legions of astrologers who trust that this tool places one firmly within the fabric of a loving universe and not at the whim of a disordered and chaotic existence. I have a greater appreciation for the cycles of my life and have learned to recognize my own mystic will as I now direct the course of my life.
“Everything in its own time.” – Emily Saliers

“There is something in the depths of our being that hungers for wholeness and finality. Because we are made for eternal life, we are made for an act that gathers up all the powers and capacities of our being and offers them simultaneously and forever to God. The blind spiritual instinct that tells us obscurely that our own lives have a particular importance and purpose, and which urges us to find out our vocation, seeks in so doing to bring us to a decision that will dedicate our lives irrevocably to their true purpose.”― Thomas Merton

“In any case, astrology occupies a unique and special position among the intuitive methods… I have observed many cases where a well-defined psychological phase, or an analogous event, was accompanied by a transit (particularly when Saturn and Uranus were affected).” – Carl G. Jung
Astrology serves to illuminate the path to wholeness. The content of your birth chart allows you to move forward with a greater awareness as to why you are here and what lies ahead. When we understand and become conscious, we meet our lives with a deeper presence, a greater sense of liberation, and open ourselves up to Amazing Grace.
