Astrological Nadir: Embracing and Healing the Past

The nadir, or Imum Coeli (IC), Latin for “bottom of the sky,” is one of the four major angles in an astrological birth chart, and definitely the least talked about. It lies opposite the Midheaven—a point on our chart that represents our public life and persona, which gets a lot of attention. Our nadir (IC) signifies our depth and needs, a part of us that we often don’t share with others. While the rising and descendant axis of our charts navigates the relationship between self and others, the Midheaven and nadir showcases the polarity of our outer and inner worlds. The IC sits on the cusp of the fourth house associated with family lineage, home environment, and family influences. Similarly t

How to Win the Heart of a Taurus

A lover who keeps you in kisses, books, plant-based food and earth stones.-Yrsa Daley-Ward While I don’t know this poet personally, I am certain he was speaking on behalf of Tauruses everywhere. Right now with the Sun (for a few more days), Mercury (almost out of retrograde), and Venus in Taurus, I think we could all use a deeper understanding of Taurus energy. As an astrologer I’m usually don’t promote becoming too identified with sun signs as there is so much complexity to be found in our birth charts beyond sun placement; however, I do love being a Taurus. A pleasure-seeker and lover at heart, Tauruses tend to be affectionate, kind, and reliable. (Ask any of my friends, I’m always the fir

Wild Witch of the West

If I am honest I am not entirely sure where "Wild Witch of the West" came from and I'm still discovering who/what it means. At this moment it is my personal brand, but also alias and identity of a woman I want to be. The play on words of "Wicked Witch of the West" is intentional as reclaiming the word "witch" as a symbol of power and independence versus evil feel important to me as a woman. While the phrase Wild Witch of the West speaks volumes, each word holds meaning to me based on its etymology. WILD: WILD FROM PROTO-INDO-EUROPEAN ROOT *WELT- “WOODLANDS” The wild woman archetype is something I identify with closely, it could be my Sun-Uranus quirky, wacky self, but ultimately the wild wom

About Me

Hi, I'm Rebecca (aka Wild Witch of the West), a San Francisco-based archetypal astrologer and writer.  For more than a decade I've been deep diving in the astrology world helping clients connect more to their life purpose and their soul. Pre-astro geek and coming out of the "broom" closet, I received my Master's degree in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness and wrote my thesis on the human connection to the stars. I offer individual and group astrology readings.


"Rebecca is amazing, hands down - you won't be disappointed in seeing her! She's warm, wise, witchy and intuitive, while also managing to be  practical and straightforward with a grounded energy that immediately puts you at ease.

I've never met anyone with such detailed knowledge of astrology, but the magic of Rebecca's readings is in combining astrological archetypal themes with a profound understanding of human nature. The themes she brought forward in my natal chart reading were spot on, and some nearly moved me to tears, long-buried hopes and dreams that I haven't dared to think about in quite some time.

I came away from our session with much more insight into myself, and some ideas that I'll be marinating on for months to come."
