My name is Alexandra Karacostas. I am a professional consulting astrologer based in northern California. The focus of my practice is person-centered astrology: helping people successfully navigate their lives. The work integrates practical, psychological and spiritual astrology. I have been an avid student of astrology since 1975 and started practicing professionally in 1984.
Since then I have offered counseling services, classes and workshops, and contributed articles and monthly columns to various publications.
Though I currently reside in northern California, my other home is in Greece, where I grew up.
As a child I was surrounded by a large extended family and a strong matriarchal lineage. Magic, dreams, myths, delicious food and nature were a vibrant part of my life, embedded in the natural beauty and culture of Greece. The world of metaphysics and spirits was introduced to me at an early age by my mother. My on-going fascination and study of the universal mysteries led me to astrology, which in turn is offered here!
