What is Evolutionary Astrology?

Evolutionary Astrology offers tremendous insights into where the Soul has been, its current life purpose, and ultimately where the Soul is going. In much of traditional astrology, the sun, moon and ascendant are emphasized.

Testimonials

“In my experience of teaching thousands of students all over the world for over 20 years, few have demonstrated the capacity to truly understand the incredibly deep richness of the symbolic astrological archetypes that correlate to the focus of Evolutionary Astrology. Kristin Fontana has demonstrated this capacity to me because of her tremendous intuitive capacity to grasp the depth and wholeness of such archetypes. Beyond this, she has demonstrated the ability to synthesize and understand how these archetypes interact so to truly KNOW the individual signature. I can only highly recommend to you that you allow yourself to experience the richness and understanding of yourself that Kristin Fontana can help you see.”

Jeffrey Wolf Green

Astrologer, Author

“If you have found Kristin Fontana, you can congratulate yourself on being ‘ready’. Ready for change. For empowerment. For enlightenment. I believe you find what you need when you can ask for it without being attached to getting it. I found Kristin in such a way. For years a dear friend had been telling me of this wonderful woman with whom she was certain I would instantly connect. But for years, I wasn’t ready. When I actually turned within and took responsibility for my life… poof, there she was, ready to guide me to the next level of understanding, trust and acceptance. Kristin is one of the most conscious people I have ever met. Oh, and lest I neglect to mention it… her energy is absolutely exhilarating. Count yourself lucky if you get to work with her, for it will change your life. Kristin is a skilled translator, active interpreter and compassionate facillitor. Working with her gift in evolutionary astrology provided a conduit into myself that reframed my perspective. Three aspects of her work particulary resonate with me: (1) the emphasis on ‘free will’ (2) her use of music as a communication tool and (3) the reassuring insights into my ‘backstory’ and how it colors my ‘now’.” Best wishes on your journey and hearty congratulations for finding a wonderful guide.

“From the very first minute you share with Kristin, she will just get who you are, what you’re about, and what you need to hear to help you grow to a place of self awareness, peace and joy. She tells you the truth… even those truths we might like to ignore, but she does it with so much humor, grace, and compassion that even at the most challenging of times you will feel wholly supported and understood. The depth of her thoughtful insights, perceptions, and comments is infinite, valuable beyond any amount. Knowing Kristin will change you… and you’ll never know how you got through so much of your life before she was on your side. She is an “old soul” and she’ll help you heal, grow and become everything that you want to be. I promise – just one minute is all you’ll need to know that you took a step in a direction that will positively affect you for the rest of your life.”

“Quite simply, Kristin Fontana is one of the most special people I know. I say this in reference to both her personal and professional life. Kristin is an incredible mother of two beautiful, trusting, happy children. She is the wife of a wonderful man and successful entrepreneur. I admire Kristin’s ability to balance her dedication to family with a thriving professional practice. I have been getting readings from Kristin for 2 years. As a professional coach who supports others to reach their goals and dreams, I often yearn to connect with somebody who supports me! Kristin is that person and plays a very special and important role in my life. Kristin is right on … always. Her ability to balance her expertise in astrology with her gift of intuition is remarkable. I rely on Kristin to share my future with me, teach me, guide me, and above all help me feel enlightened, focused and inspired despite sometimes very challenging times. Kristin is dedicated to the success and fulfillment of others. She always goes above and beyond in her service to her clients. As her friend and colleague I see this not just with me, but with all her clients. She truly cares about others. It is with respect and admiration that I recommend you get in touch with Kristin.

“I’ve been following Kristin for about five years and have been struck by how on spot she is pretty much all the time. I felt she had a clear insight into my life reading her newsletter. I eventually asked her to do our reading. It was an amazing and incredible experience. Kristin lifted a lot of doubts, confirmed what I was sensing, and simply made me feel more clarity as to what is happening in my professional, personal, and out relationship life. I can’t imagine not having met her in this lifetime. It’s as if a dear old friend stepped back into my life, smiled and brought sunshine in. She has that uncanny way of peering into the stars. The world is a warmer place with you here, Kristin 🙂 ”

Nicolas Zart

“If I were to think back upon my initial consultation with Kristin, I would simply grin with a slight reflection of peace. She opened up new doors for me and enlightened me to the portals that surround our lives. I now have a better image of myself than what the mirror provides, for now I can see myself and understand that not all feelings that I have are self created, but self promoting. When down, I now learn to tune into myself and realize perhaps it is a time of reflection when in the past I would have simply questioned, “why me?” The awareness that all the external elements are indeed part of my makeup have given me a sense of ease and understanding. I am not simply cells with a birth date and death date but an actual ingredient to this amazing simple yet complicated universe. It is very peaceful knowing what I have been given( i.e. skills, talents, triumphs and loss), were meant specifically for me in this lifetime. With this information, I can see purpose for my being and also now appreciate the details of those around me. I thank you Kristin for graciously holding the door open.”

“My experience with Kristin has helped me clarify and understand many of the feelings that my “Soul” has been attempting to communicate to me since I was a little kid. Kristin helped me “connect the dots” – and understand my past and present life situations. Her insight has assisted me in my business, personal and spiritual lives. Kristin truly is an “Angel” and her wisdom is a gift that will continue to help guide my Soul during this Human experience. I am grateful that we connected.”

M. Stewart

Vice President, Fortune 500 Company – LA, Ca.

“I do not understand evolutionary astrology and I don’t know if I truly understand Kristin Fontana. This is not what it’s about. Trust, Understanding and Honesty: This is why Kristin has become my teacher, collaborator, and confidante. Her questions amaze me – she must know what I’ve been thinking about. Her insight is remarkable – she must really know where I’ve been and where I’m going? Her timing is impeccable – she must have a window into my life? Her work is sensitive yet honest – she must really know how I am feeling? Her ability to communicate is highly developed – she must have been doing this a long time? Somehow she knows me and somehow she knows my way. My head is understood and my heart is felt and for me this is what it’s all about.”

Dr. David Birdsall

CEO, Habits for Life

“Kristin Fontana is an insightful and sensitive astrologer who brings the talents of creativity, enthusiasm and a very keen intellect to her readings. Kristin has many talents and she is enhanced by a very loving and kind heart. I have found that her readings are not only meaningful for me at the time they are given, but I reflect on her wisdom long afterwards… she continues to give in a unique and exquisite manner.”

Aries

Mar 21 - Apr 19

Week of August 12 ~ When determining what the energy is going to feel like for any given week, it is vital to incorporate all of the planetary positions and the planets relationship to one another. For example, your ruler Mars is in your sign, Aries, and that alone is going to give you some extra fuel and personal drive. But you may be tested deeply as Mars moves into a square to older brother Pluto, followed by a square to taskmaster Saturn next week, so be vigilant against the darker currents. This can certainly test the Soul to see what it is made of. Fortunately, just before the weekend, Mars and the Sun align with ease as it shines a radiant light on your path in some profound way. Mars is also approaching a New Moon in fellow fire sign Leo on Tuesday, Aug. 18, as well as forming a favorable trine to the North Node in fire sign Sagittarius. The symbol for your destiny, guaranteed to gift you with significantly gratifying energetic momentum. The day before, Mercury joins the Sun in Leo, illuminating something that opens your heart as well. So, while you will be pushed, you will also be feeling empowered as a result of rising to a Soul challenge, one that may very well feel lifetimes old.

New beginnings that shine a ray of hope and carry a fire of optimism are right around the corner!

Taurus

Apr 20 - May 20

Week of August 12 ~ Life may feel like one big mishmash of uncertainty and a reality that is not ideal, but we cannot overlook the clear lessons that we are experiencing within our own countries and as a planet. Action Mars is in Aries and squaring older brother Pluto in fellow earth sign Capricorn this week, increasing some of the fog and potentially dashing a previously leaned-on faith. Mars in Aries square to Pluto in Capricorn reflects a metamorphic turn, where new choices must be made to support reality as it exists at the moment. You may also be reaching karmic intersections with others, so tensions may run high and anger may follow. Fortunately, this energy peaks and pops in a way that makes room for a far better feeling of progress and movement the remainder of the month. Mercury joins the Sun on Monday, Aug. 17, in your house of home and the emotional body, and has you feeling more light where there had been murky waters. A New Moon in Aries joins Mercury the following day, on the eve of Tuesday, Aug. 18, while forming a passionate trine to action Mars, increasing your level of confidence in something again. In addition, transformative Uranus in your sign is partnering in exceptional ways to your ruler Venus in Cancer, energizing optimal inner movement that leads to a brighter personal reality. 

Be conscious of what you need to culminate and clear this week, and you will experience a visceral feeling of elevation!

 

Gemini

May 21 - Jun 20

Week of August 12 ~ When life peaks in its pressure and heat, as it may be doing now with action Mars in Aries squaring metamorphic Pluto, you can bet you won’t be on easy street. The times are calling for change and for everyone to step up and do their part. There is a strong theme involving power plays this week, where you are either calling in negotiations that could greatly impact your journey, or else you are attracting a karmic interplay with another that is requiring you to access a voice of courage. While things may heat up, life may quickly fall in your favor as soon as Monday, Aug. 17, when your ruler Mercury joins the Sun in Leo and sets the week up nicely with a New Moon that follows on Tuesday, Aug. 18. Wherever you feel blocked today, may open up wide by then. Venus and Uranus also pair up beautifully which may have you experiencing the break you have been yearning for. In your own way, you may have to get in the ring this week and fight for the change you seek. A certain intensity nearly vanishes by Monday when the Sun finds a way to shine in your life again. 

Prepare for the gates to open, even if you have to push your way through!

 

Cancer

Jun 21 - Jul 22

Week of August 12 ~ An encouraging New Moon in Leo is brewing and will bless your emotional shores on the eve of Tuesday, Aug. 18. You may even feel some of that optimistic heat the day before when Mercury in Leo merges with the Sun to get a passionate fire started. Action Mars in Aries is also a major player next week as he forms a supportive trine to the New Moon, energizing an encouraging climb on the career front. You are due to be an instant standout. But before we get there, Mars is stirring up the deep as he squares Pluto in your opposite sign early on, which may lead to a feeling of being out of balance with all the demands on your time. It will be essential to include daily nurturing on your part, so you are better for whatever crosses your path. It’s also about balancing the need for time with the ones you love. Wherever you are, be there. Next week’s New Moon has an added bonus to it as well. Loving Venus is in your sign, Cancer, and will be in brilliant harmony with Uranus, suggesting breakthroughs that bring promising relief are not just possible, but highly probable. Things may feel like a grind early on but there is a mountain of hope on the horizon as your efforts and follow-through are due to truly pay off; emotionally, financially, and spiritually.

Get going!

 

Leo

Jul 23 - Aug 22

Week of August 12 ~ It may be feeling intense in places this birthday month, but for all you heart-centered Leos, the love is yet to come. While there have been windows and moments when you felt the light stream in, there have been some emotional tugs at every turn. Mars starts out in stress to Pluto early on this week, demanding that you evolve in how you internalize this journey. Old habits do die hard and this week, you blow a self-defeating thought to smithereens. It may be that the stars waited until the end of your solar celebration until they brought out your full shine. Expressive Mercury is in your sign and joins your ruler, the Sun, on Monday, Aug. 17, illuminating a bright piece of your future as you receive some validating evidence that immediately raises your spirits. ‘The love’ is going to show up in various ways next week. A New Moon in your sign on Tuesday, Aug. 18, will be merged with Mercury and this triple hit of fire will align passionately with action Mars in fellow fire sign Aries, breeding new life into your world again. Loving Venus in Cancer is also uniquely, and yet favorably, connected to radical Uranus, inviting a potential dream-like opportunity that you didn’t see coming. This energetic make-up will blast through just about any kind of dark cloud or lingering resistance. Something ‘sets fire to the rain’ and you find your heart and Soul again in the process. 

Prepare to feel that beating muscle stretch and to feel some awesome love in return!

 

Virgo

Aug 23 - Sep 22

 

Week of August 12 ~ The universe is calling on you to expand your reach, with Jupiter retrograde in fellow earth sign Capricorn, energizing more growth that feels right and feels good. However, action Mars is in Aries and squaring Pluto in Capricorn at the onset of this forecast week, signifying big events in this timeline of your life, and it is requiring inner evolutionarily maturation that touches a deep vein of vulnerability. You feel into that space and know that this is where the meaning lives. It’s the stuff that counts when you are not here any longer, because you get to carry it with you into the next realm. Your ruler Mercury is in creative Leo and it is bringing out more color in your brush strokes, as well as in your footsteps. Mercury finds the light in full on Monday, Aug. 17, when it fuses with the almighty Sun, highlighting your playful essence and leads you into a week that may feel far different than the one we are currently in. Mercury joins a New Moon in Leo on Tuesday, Aug. 18, to further extend your dreamscapes and to generate a desirable charge to your Soul’s purpose with its supportive angle to action Mars. Something is healing at the same time something feels to be in a new state of becoming. Uranus in fellow earth sign Taurus also blends with perfection to Venus in Cancer severing as an optimal catalyst on our path. Key connections can be life- changing. What an awesome feeling to know you are leaving something unnecessary behind. Empower yourself through this early turn and the rewards next week are sure to be timeless and true.

Talk about priceless!

Libra

Sep 23 - Oct 22

Week of August 12 ~ There is not a Soul on this planet who enjoys feeling insecure, and that is why evolution can take so darn long. There are times, however, when the energies push on us to force a more rapid unfolding. But if this push is too hard, we naturally resist what we don’t know we need. So often after a client makes a major breakthrough, I hear them saying, “Why didn’t I do this sooner?” Action Mars in your opposite sign of Aries is squaring karmic Pluto this week, and it will undoubtedly be pushing your growth buttons. It very well may not feel comfortable early on, but you will feel the opportunity in the wind, and I encourage you to follow it. There are exceptionally strong trends forming next week that start with communication planet Mercury joining the Sun in Leo in your house of thrilling change. The following day, a New Moon lands at the same degree on the eve of Tuesday, Aug. 18, opening your heart in a stellar new way. Together this trinity of cosmic energy optimally combines with action Mars in Aries to help you forge a new pact, one that has you inspired and feeling very much alive again. Your ruler, loving Venus, in Cancer will also be receiving an electric lift from Uranus on the very same day, which may penetrate so deep, you will know that you are working with true content in your life that feels like Soul stuff, versus all the rest. 

This is your pocket in time for a radical win! 

 

Scorpio

Oct 23 - Nov 21

Week of August 12 ~ Mars can be a troublemaker at times when the energy is not directed well or with the right intent, and when Mars is combining with your ruler Pluto, it can activate karmic content that is time sensitive. Mars in Aries peaks in his square to older brother Pluto in the first few days of this forecast week and has you right in the center of a problem that your Soul is finally feeling ready to fix. This becomes your priority, and the sooner you deal with it, the sooner the rest can fall into place. There may also be obstacles with this pandemic that are still wildly in place, requiring you to become more creative with your attention and your time. Fortunately, Mercury in Leo is up at the top of your chart and energizing career pursuits that bring out your solar center which has you catching other people’s attention. Mercury joins the Sun on Monday, Aug. 17, and the following day on Tuesday, Aug. 18, a New Moon in Leo couples with Mercury to open a new door. Action Mars in Aries will be securely aligned to this lunar lift and as you direct your will, doors may swing open as easily as dominoes falling. There is more. Loving Venus in fellow water sign Cancer plugs into electric Uranus to give your connections a full-on charge allowing something to feel positively brand new. First figure out what is in the way, and then work to free it from your path. 

Get ready for a new gear!


Sagittarius

Nov 22 - Dec 21

Week of August 12 ~ With Mars traveling through fellow fire sign Aries, he’s right where you want him as he energizes your travels with more energy and desire to ride into your future. This week, however, Mars is squaring Pluto in Capricorn, and it may have you feeling either more ‘on your own’ or overly burdened with too much hanging on your Soul. It comes down to prioritizing the choices you are needing to make now. This trend also connects to eliminating those things in your life that are not adding onto your journey in any real way, so there is room and space to dedicate your focus to those things that can and do. You will feel less encumbered and more free within those intentional strides. But it really goes deeper than that this week. It involves getting to the root of what the evolution of your creative life purpose looks like, and making choices what will lead you there. Messenger Mercury in fellow fire sign Leo joins an inspiring New Moon in Leo on Tuesday, Aug. 18, and together they receive a convincing trine from action Mars in fellow fire sign Aries, catapulting you into a new playing field. At the very least you will be experiencing a new level of motivation and that is all a Sag really needs to feel in order to take it to the limit. Loving Venus and Uranus also harmonize in exceptional ways to energize greater innovation within your Soul’s work. 

Prepare for a push followed by a liberating new wind at your back!

 

Capricorn

Dec 22 - Jan 19

Week of August 12 ~ The world is now living by a new set of rules, seen with your ruler Saturn retrograde in Capricorn. We are all living in a time that will become an unprecedented period in history and we are all responsible for making this planet better for the generations to come. It will take a collective effort with one common theme in mind: the health of this planet. With Mars in Aries until early 2021, and squaring Pluto as well as Saturn three times between now and then, it will prove to be an ongoing work in progress. Saturn reminds us where we must be patient. It points to the discipline in our life that is required, but it will also be the energy that ultimately sustains us for the long haul. We need Saturn. Mars squares Pluto in Capricorn this week and follows with a square to Saturn in Capricorn next week, but a New Moon in Leo is coming on Tuesday, Aug. 18. Not only will it be accompanied by Mercury, who is full of brilliant ideas, it will be forming a stunning angle of strength to Mars in Aries. This suggests if you harness your will and direct it with deep intent, you will be emotionally empowered to take just about anything on. A key connection gives your heart a charge and helps you get there. 

Feel what you want first and then follow the heat of passion into being!

 

Aquarius

Jan 20 - Feb 18

Week of August 12 ~ In all the years I have been offering these weekly starcasts, I never remember a week when it was energetic perfection. There is always a combination of stress and support. It just comes down to how much of each. We will always see some stress if the Soul is going after something big. Even if you are floored about making a significant move, there will be considerable stress in the ethers to reflect the energy required to make the change. Currently, we really do have massive amounts of both pressure as well as optimal fire. It starts this week with action Mars in Aries squaring Pluto in Capricorn, which can feel like a pressure cooker in places. However, the energy progressively frees up as you confront what you have been avoiding or pretending wasn’t an issue. There are energetic kickbacks for dealing with the tough stuff head-on. The energy shifts significantly next week, as Mercury conjuncts the Sun in Leo in your house of relationships on Monday, Aug. 17, and there is nothing like a little love to lighten life’s load. The following day on Tuesday, Aug. 18, Mercury combines with a New Moon in Leo while receiving a heated trine from Mars in Aries, fanning relationship flames that increase the heart connection. If that wasn’t enough, your ruler Uranus in Taurus links up with loving Venus to remove a worry and replace it with a timely revelation. 

Step into whatever is challenging you early this week and you will be amply rewarded for your courage!

 

Pisces

Feb 19 - Mar 20

Week of August 5 ~ With so much uncertainty in the air, it may have been a challenge to look forward to certain things in recent months. The expression, “Don’t hold your breath,” could not be more true these days. But with your ruler Neptune’s recent supportive alignment to good luck charm Jupiter, some significantly favorable tides may have turned. Even if they are temporary, they are telling you something, and they will not be temporary forever. Loving Venus in Gemini is also joined with the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, and it is tugging plenty on those heartstrings. This week feels to be mixed with emotion. It’s as if you cannot experience one emotion without the other. It’s like feeling the (bittersweet) thrill of going off to college and having to say goodbye to people you love. Venus moves on and enters fellow water sign Cancer on Friday, Aug. 7, which will increase your emotional pleasure in the coming weeks, so allow yourself to ‘feel it all’. 

Sure, there is a growth spurt present on the path, but you will be nurtured as you evolve, in one way or another!
