Illuminating the next steps of your Journey...
I'm Danielle Blackwood, a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor (RTC), and certified Archetypal Astrologer located on magical Salt Spring Island, BC. Thank you so much for your interest in my work! I offer Holistic Counselling - using a unique blend of the symbolism and archetypes of Astrology, along with my academic background in Psychology and Women's Studies - to help you get unstuck, find your purpose, and gain clarity and insight on your journey.
You can connect with me for a session via phone or Skype from anywhere in the world! If you are on Salt Spring Island, I also see clients for in-person sessions. Send me an e-mail to book, or if you have any questions regarding my services:

*** Please note that I specialize in working with women ***
“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”
- Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype
Your Birth Chart is your Soul Contract
Your birth chart is a snapshot of the heavens from the moment you came into this world and took your first breath. It is your "psychic blueprint", and is as unique to you as your fingerprint. It can be seen as your "soul's agreement", or contract, that you made before you were born, and contains layers of insight that will help you get your show on the road with intent and direction. Before our session together, I will send you a new client questionnaire that helps me focus my research so that you get the most out of our time together. Your chart will show me infinite things about you, and its good to have a place to begin, so that I can address what is important to you now. It is my intention to create an empowering, encouraging and inspiring space so that you can "get out of your own way," and see your life as the unfolding Heroine's Journey that it is.
My aim is to be a catalyst to help you remember who you are, why you're here, and support you as you move forward on the next steps of your journey with clarity and confidence
A little bit about me
I am a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, and the Astrology columnist for Banyen Books and Sound and SageWoman magazine. I'm also a published author (Dancing in the Temple of the Queen of Heaven, 2013) and am busy completing my first book on Astrology. I have had the privilege of studying Goddess Archetypes with Jean Shinoda Bolen (Goddesses in Everywoman), and am off to Colorado this summer to do a facilitator training intensive with Clarrissa Pinkola Estes (Women Who Run with the Wolves). My background is in Counselling Psychology and Women's Studies from the University of British Columbia, as well as certification in numerous wellness modalities. I'm also a passionate scholar of the works of Carl Jung, mythology, and archetypal psychology, and work best with individuals who are on a psycho-spiritual growth path.
