Rebecca Farrar astrologer and intuitive

I spent most of my childhood wandering the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, making tree forts with my sister and the neighborhood kids while looking out for rattlesnakes and mountain lion scat.  Grateful for this early deep connection to Earth during those formative years of living in the shadows of the mountains that watched me grow up and the wildness around me. I continue to cultivate this rooted relationship through my daily "witch" walks and seasonal reverence.

Before becoming an astrologer 13 years ago, I worked for more than a decade in the public, private, and non-profit sectors in communications and public relations as a team member and boss. I also had brief forays as a TV reporter, speed-dating hostess, spokesmodel, and yoga instructor. During all that time, I was also a huge astrology skeptic. 

 

Now I do my best to bridge the worlds of woo and work with a down-to-earth and trauma-informed lens for my astrology sessions, courses, and trainings. I love working with other holistic healers, magic makers, witches, wild ones, and revolutionaries to uncover more purpose and soul.

 

The business name Wild Witch of the West came to me in the middle of the night more than a decade ago, and I'm still living into the idea and letting it evolve as I go. While the word witch may evoke many things, to me it means:

  • enchanting myself with Earth and Ether, as a connector between above and below, and a lover of darkness and light

  •  a strong political stance against the macro expression of patriarchy and its value of dominance over collaboration

  •  honoring and valuing my intuition as a guide to living my life as an art

  • valuing Earth and doing my best to align with how to create a relationship of integrity with my favorite planet

When not staring at my transits (or your chart), I can be found wandering on a hiking trail, watching silly TikTok videos, or "force" cuddling my kitties Freyja and Sophie.

(or at least to me)

Values & Vision

Enchantment - A cosmological lens of awe toward existence and beauty, a modern medicine for our sense of separation

Earth - Doing my best to live in harmony and have as little harmful impact as I can on our planet through permaculture, herbalism, and delight

Community Care & Collaboration - Together we can be more and accomplish more, reach out below!

Complexity - Valuing and/or paradox rather than binary thinking...same for astrology imagining beyond the chart to evolution

Desire & Evolution- Trusting the soul as a place we can listen for guidance to lead us back to ourselves. The pull towards something that evolves us.

Co-Liberation - Commitment to intersectionality and acknowledging how I benefit from the current structures of oppression. Here is my anti-racism statement informed by my time in the UNtraining program.

Adventure - Humans need uncertainty and stability to thrive and novelty makes my soul sing

Wisdom - Lover of learning, and doing my best not to be a know-it-all. My favorite books: Care of the Soul by Thomas Moore, All About Love by bell hooks, Way of all Women by Esther Harding, Emergent Strategy by adrienne marie brown, Women Who Run with Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés

"A Witch is somebody who stands against patriarchy and everything that is currently wrong with our society and any society throughout the ages."

— April Graham

  • How often do you recommend doing an astrology reading?
    I suggest readings 2-3 times a year depending on your desire to get to know your chart and current life transitions. Perhaps around your half birthday and birthday? This spacing allows for seeing new transits and timing and learning about the birth chart. Obviously trust your own intuition on when feels right to you.
  • Do you offer in-person astrology readings?
    I do indeed, I have access to an office space near Market and Church in San Francisco. Alternatively, I offer event and small group readings. More info on my site here.
  • My finances are not feeling so great, can I still work with you?
    I offer a sliding scale of $250-$300 for one-on-one astrology readings and $270-$333 for astromapping and synastry sessions. Feel free to contact me if you are in need, or I can set up a payment plan. In addition, my newsletter is free and I have several other offerings or courses that are low-fee.
  • How well do I need to know my chart to have a session?
    You can know absolutely nothing and we will move slowly, or you can have a baseline and we can build upon it. Where ever you are in your astro-speak level is perfect.
  • What is included in a session?
    After your reading you will receive a Zoom recording, a copy of your natal chart, and a guide to the symbols on your chart.
  • What if I don't know my birth time?
    Not a problem! We can still get sooooo much information from your chart even without the exact time. However, for astromapping we do need it...so don't sign up for that service if you don't have it within a few hours.
  • My birthday is soon, what is a good session to celebrate myself?
    Happy Earth birth! You can sign up for individual astrology reading and I will be sure to make time for us to look at themes for your birth year ahead.
  • How is your work different from other astrologers?
    There are many incredible astrologers out there and obviously finding one that works for you is important! I use a combination of archetypal astrology, traditional timing techniques, and my psychic abilities. Archetypal astrology places more emphasis on planetary combinations and aspects. The focus is on psychological complexes and how we can unfold our life through these themes and patterns.
  • Are you a psychic and can you tell me what might happen?
    I'm incredibly intuitive and am able to tap into potential outcomes and insights through the natal chart. Astrology is my tool for this access. Astrology helps us see themes and possibly synchronicities, but fate and free will changes and it is up to individuals to align with their soul...my work can help.
  • Where are you located?
    Currently I'm living in Marin County just north of San Francisco. I don't see clients in-person unless it is for more than two hours.
  • How often to you see clients?
    I limit the number of sessions I have per week to make sure I'm fully present and able to give my best astrologically and intuitively. For me this means on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and some Saturdays. If none of the times work for you, feel free to contact me and we can find a time outside of my normal schedule.
  • Do you see clients not based in the U.S.?
    I do! I have clients all over the world...from the United Kingdom to United Arab Emirates. While most of my timing slots may work better for those in the U.S., I do my best to offer a variety of availability for those not as close to my time zone.
