How(l) to Find Your Pack

While Italy sings for solidarity, my neighborhood howls. The first night the howling started I felt nervous, it was a week or so into lock down and any sense of commotion made me uneasy. The cat ran away and hid under the bed, I peered out the window cautiously. Then I texted a neighbor and asked if she heard it, she said it was the local wolf pack. I believed her (insert face palm emoji) and then I remembered we have coyotes in these parts but not wolves. In fact there is a Coyote Creek that runs beneath my apartment and a Coyote Ridge Trail that I hike on in hopes of coming across a canis latrans--I had to look that up so don't be impressed. It happened again the next night and I stayed i

Burn it Down to Build it up: Aries New Moon

Saturn into Aquarius and Evolving Reality

On Saturday, March 21 at 8:58 p.m. PT/11:58 p.m. ET Saturn moves into Aquarius perhaps reminding us of the evolving reality here on Earth. Then on July 1, it moves back into Capricorn, offering a few month glimpse of what's to come. While a post-pandemic world may not exist yet, we can envision it, hopefully collectively. It orients us to what's possible in the future whereas Saturn in Capricorn brings about a sense of scarcity and hoarding mentality (hello TP and sanitizer). Aquarius concerns itself with community and humankind rather than the more individualistic and patriarchal, outdated Capricorn concept of pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. From July through December 17, 2020 we w

enVisioning Earth 2020

I'm sitting in my apartment concerned how I'm going to pay rent, feed myself and my cat, pay my bills, have a business. And I realize many others may be in a similar boat, the uncertainty and inevitable change can bring up a lot. Though I feel I have been preparing for quarantine for the past year...slowing down, noticing more pain in my body, fewer hours with other. I've been living into this new reality and not even realizing it, wondering where to find happiness and how in a reality that feels like it's shifting quickly with or without me understanding how or why. I'm finding solace in visioning what life could look like in the future. How society could orient and evolve in new ways honor

Re-potting and Re-homing

It's been almost six months since I moved out my have home of a decade and this past week I finally repotted almost all of my 20ish indoor and outdoor plants. I have recently become obsessed with my plant babies and their comfort. As I grow into my new apartment I have wanted the same for them...a larger space, more space to breath. My outdoor deck has become filled with flowers of lantana, jasmine, and soon heliotrope. The new sweet bay tree greets me as I walk in and out of my apartment and my indoor plants bring me so much joy as I slumber near them. I feel when they need water, a friendly hello, or sometimes even a brush of my hand for sweetness. Really, as I've repotted them I've repott

How I Learned to Love Shame

One of the stupidest online arguments I’ve ever gotten into was with a woman in a FB group telling people not to shame others and instead to name their needs. In theory this statement would make sense, but even her tone felt shaming--though to be fair it was online and difficult to gauge completely-- and it ignored the entire fact that we can’t predict when what we say will evoke someone’s shame triggers. It felt that just disagreeing about shame was creating more of it in both of us. Sometimes even the softest language possible can still evoke shame, or be perceived as shaming. Because each of us has our own unique "shame formula" that creates our experience, one thing that seems insignific

Purity & Perfectionism :: Virgo Full Moon

Musing of Magical Moth & Beautiful Butterfly

I've had a difficult and quiet past year and have clung to the idea of becoming a butterfly...eventually emerging as a daytime beauty with stunning wings fluttering and fleeting about without a care in the world. Perhaps I will hypnotize someone who watches me long enough to land on flowers and admire my delicacy. However, I’ve considered myself a messy moth, because sometimes I eat clothes and am more active at night. (Okay, I don’t actually eat clothes, but I do feel like destroying things sometimes.) When I look at my life, I’ve been more of a behind the scenes type, working in PR or marketing...I’ve had the limelight on rare occasions and felt uncomfortable and exposed. I orbit others ea

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."
