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. You will never look back and you will have formed a lifelong partnership in helping you reach your goals and dreams!”

“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 May 12 ~ You are feelin’ it, and maybe more than you want to be. Your ruler Mars is in Cancer, which can bring it all home, the emotion that is. At times all it takes is hearing an old song or the smell of something cooking on the stove to bring it all back. Mars is in position to help you do the down n dirty work on yourself, the kind that is necessary in order to feel some Soul traction so you can get a move-on. We cannot evolve without it. The Moon has just become New in Taurus, which in combination is so much about strengthening your inner world and becoming more self-reliant and self-sustaining, no matter what may be going on in your outer world. Sometimes we have no other choice but to look to ourselves in order to find a way to feel better. Mercury is in Gemini and exactly conjunct the North Node, the symbol that pulls you into your future, and together they are forming an intelligent trine to Saturn in Aquarius, energizing novel ideas and exciting pursuits for you to invest in with your energy and time. Expansive Jupiter is also entering dreamy Pisces on Thursday, May 13, where it will be for only a few months stay before retrograding back into Aquarius again, offering plenty of space to explore the unexplored, just how you like it.

Find your way to higher ground so you can bask in the 360-degree view!

Taurus

Apr 20 - May 20

Week of May 12 ~ As I write your forecast this week, Taurus, a New Moon is peaking in your sign, but you will be reading these words several hours or more after all has been written. Whenever your eyes do reach this page, close them and tune in. A New Moon in your sign only occurs once a year and this one carries an exceptional frequency so be sure to milk this energy for all its worth. Your wish is the Universe’s command. Action Mars in Cancer is forming an effortless sextile to Uranus in your sign, prime for picking an emotional lock and allowing you to release a bin of emotional content that you have been storing. It may also be feeding you with a tremendous amount of new energy to creatively channel into something that can be lucrative or personally valuable. If you are involved in any kind of negotiations, you will have the upper hand with Mercury in Gemini joining the North Node and favorably trining Saturn, to help secure some long-term steps. Generous Jupiter is also entering Pisces on Thursday, May 13, in your house of innovation and eccentric leanings, opening doors to something potentially ‘out of this world.’ Feel into that fire within that is destined to light your way.

Your mantras are transmitting extra heat, and if directed well can lead to timely meaningful outcomes!

Gemini

May 21 - Jun 20

Week of May 12 ~ There is no planetary mixture that equals perfection. It becomes a series of slicing and dicing and combining elements that reflect the gamut of what you may be experiencing at any given point in time. For example, you may be experiencing great success in your work, but maybe someone you care about is struggling in some way. It is impossible to feel ecstatic about anything if someone you love is down in the dumps, so it becomes about making the best of the hand you’ve been dealt and energizing desirable movement where you can, knowing also that everything you are calling in is a direct result of your individual karma; the upside, the average, as well as the downside. There is plenty of energy for you to pull from however this week. It starts with a New Moon in Taurus, in your house of dreams and the ideal, giving you the vision and the passion to extend your steps in this world. Your ruler Mercury is also in your sign and conjoined with the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, and forming a securing trine to Saturn in fellow air sign Aquarius, helping you secure a change involving a new agreement that can benefit you in the long run. Expansive Jupiter is also entering Pisces up at the top of your chart on Thursday, May 13, putting you out in the world to a greater degree and increasing your visibility. Loving Venus is in your sign which can tend to gift you with a sweet feeling as it promotes more love and connection with the ones you cherish. Venus will then merge with the North Node on Monday, May 17, to layer more love on top of what’s already there. These trends are encouraging you to take the high road whenever possible while also making sure all things are fair and balanced in the process.

Visualize your best and then rise to make it real!

Cancer

Jun 21 - Jul 22

Week of May 12 ~ I find it so timely and fitting that I was writing your forecasts at the exact moment of the New Moon in Taurus, Tuesday, May 11, at 11:59 am. Leading up to this lunar initiation generated an increase in pressure, where your emotions may have felt waterlogged and too much to hold. But just as the Moon began anew, the air would have begun leaving the balloon, clearing space for something better. So many of the Taurean teachings surround self-empowerment and self-reliance, so there may be a need to generate joy on your own or to find ways to bring kindling to that fire you want to get going. You have another super strength this week with action Mars in your sign sextiling Uranus in Taurus, potentially gracing your life with some sudden good news. There may be aspects of your journey that are feeling stagnant and this Mars/Uranus pairing is geared up to have your Soul feeling electrically driven in a new and novel way. Per usual, so much of the magic begins within when Mercury in Gemini joins the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, in your house of healing and dreams while forming an elevating trine to Saturn in Aquarius in your house of empowerment. Above all, expansive Jupiter enters fellow water sign Pisces on Thursday, May 13, opening those better feeling floodgates and leading you into a wave that is yours to ride. It’s about getting to the bottom of what your Soul wants and needs in order to feel fully alive.

Once you know what that is, spend some time hovering there and then work your way into a higher octave of harmony!

Leo

Jul 23 - Aug 22

Week of May 12 ~ You have heard a time or two that ‘happiness is a state of mind’, and it’s true that your thoughts do directly impact your emotions. So if you are finding yourself in a funk, try thinking about only those things that bring a smile versus a tear. A New Moon in Taurus on Tuesday, May 11, is about committing to new structures in your life that support and energize a higher vibrational frequency. It really is an inside out process, and especially now with action Mars in ‘feeling’ Cancer partnering with Uranus in Taurus to help you blow past an emotional barrier where you have been feeling stuck. Commitment-driven Saturn is in your opposite sign and aligning with strength to Mercury and the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, strengthening your connections and support system to help you untangle vulnerable emotions so you fly through a lens of fresh perspective. This week is about change and alternative ways to live your life, and it’s about putting yourself out in the world in a new way, which means living within some vulnerable skin. However, the advantages will far outweigh the initial feelings of insecurity. Jupiter is also shifting into Pisces on Thursday, May 13, which will have you naturally wanting to evolve whatever it takes. Growth from within can help you stay rooted and whole for the long haul, whereas physical or material gain can wither with the wind.

Invest wholeheartedly in the health of your inner being while pulling from heavenly sources, and you will find yourself living on the top floor!

Virgo

Aug 23 - Sep 22

Week of May 12 ~ A New Moon in fellow earth sign Taurus starts your forecast week with some timely validation for the work you have been doing. Someone of value to you may validate your efforts and gifts which could lead to an open door or two that earns you some deserved recognition. While this lunar lift is expanding your horizons, your ruler Mercury is in Gemini and merged with the North Node, the symbol that pulls you into your future, in your house of career and the public self. Together they will trine Saturn in Aquarius to strengthen your position within any work realm and have you forging pacts with people who can help put you on the map. Profiting Venus is also in this sector and will reach the North Node by Monday, May 17, granting you with added charm and creative prowess. Benevolent Jupiter makes a big leap as well this week with his entry into Pisces in your house of relationships Thursday, May 13, expanding your options in this arena and having you attracting others with effortless ease. Your magnetism is increasing by the day and your social life may also follow this trend.

All the energetic pistons are firing for you this week, Virgo, so if you manage your time well, it could feel like you have it all!

Libra

Sep 23 - Oct 22

Week of May 12 ~ As we travel fresh on the heels of a New Moon in Taurus in your house of the Soul, you are being called to take your journey down roads where deeper meaning lives. Action Mars in Cancer is plugged into Uranus in the first few days of this forecast week, revealing what an evolved expression of your Soul looks like out there in the world. Perhaps you have been asking yourself this question, “How will they remember me?” You are a Soul that strives to make an impact here, and at the very least, to help others in the process. But there is a deeper calling that is tugging on you now. Communication planet Mercury is in fellow air sign Gemini and conjunct the North Node, the symbol that pulls you into your future, while favorably trining Saturn in fellow air sign Aquarius. This will have you securing more of what you have worked so hard to build. Loving Venus is also in Gemini which is bringing you together with colleagues and friends for gatherings and celebrations in the coming weeks, and nothing is better than being in the company of ‘your people’. Your heart will very soon be fed, but before that happens, your Soul is calling for you to drop into deeper grooves that can cultivate greater inner strength.

From there, you are as good as gold!

Scorpio

Oct 23 - Nov 21

Week of May 12 ~ Being born a Scorpio, there is nothing in life that you take lightly. In fact, you are a limit pusher in every sense of the word and forever riding the edge of evolution. In ways, you have come here to die and to be reborn time and time again. When I refer to the word ‘die’ I am simply referring to metamorphoses itself, eliminating the old and the unwanted, so new life can emerge. A New Moon in Taurus on Tuesday, May 11, occurred in your house of relationships and where else but here do we experience the greatest push of evolution? We all evolve through relationships and you may be calling a new one in or transforming the one you already have. Action Mars is in fellow water sign Cancer and is in harmonizing step with Uranus in Taurus as well, possibly catching you by surprise in terms of what you end up attracting this week, with the intention of waking you up to something radically new and different. There are strong themes linked with doing the inner work and with Mercury in Gemini conjunct the North Node, the symbol that pulls you into your future, while locked into a solid trine to Saturn in Aquarius, you are due to experience measurable growth this week, the kind that allows everything around you to mature on its heels. Abundant Jupiter enters fellow water sign Pisces on Thursday, May 13, which will have your heart naturally stretching open even as you attempt to hem it in.

Surrender to the pull and you will find yourself flying before you realize your feet have left the ground!

Sagittarius

Nov 22 - Dec 21

Week of May 12 ~ Your ruler Jupiter will be showing up in invisible ways this week when he enters Pisces on Thursday, May 13. Typically, Jupiter spends a year in every sign but he will be making a brief two month stint in Pisces before backing into Aquarius again the end of July. Jupiter will finally re-enter Pisces at the end of the year. This abbreviated visit may give you a taste of what heaven feels like or a chance to bask in more buoyant emotion. This can increase your feeling of emotional abundance within the home or have your heart expanding for a variety of reasons, it all depends on what your choice of healing medicine is. A yoga or meditation practice is well advised, as well as getting out in the home you call nature to nurture your wild essence. These things will feed you like nothing else can. The New Moon in Taurus on Tuesday, May 11, is energizing practical approaches to life and a focus on every level of your health. With Mars in Cancer favorably sextiling Uranus in Taurus, there could be one essential ingredient that will improve your well-being in dramatic fashion. Look for the obvious. Communication Mercury in Gemini is merged with the North Node at the onset of this forecast week and forming a stabilizing trine to Saturn in Aquarius, set to benefit all of your communications with those you hold near and dear. It is also a strong aspect for expressing yourself in any progressive or alternative way. Loving Venus in Gemini follows with a conjunction to the North Node this Monday, May 17, opening the gates for more love to pour in, ideal for talks that require resolution. If you are not getting what you need, let it be known.

Words work wonders!

Capricorn

Dec 22 - Jan 19

Week of May 12 ~ You have arrived at a launch point with the New Moon in fellow earth sign Taurus signifying a new chapter in either a creative endeavor or something involving matters of the heart. Action Mars is in Cancer in your house of relationships and coupled cleverly with Uranus in Taurus as well, energizing greater ease in finding your way to the same page as a result of a like-minded passion. All of your connections may experience a life-changing spark under these far out skies, and at times all it takes is going through something extreme to radically alter how you move in space. In addition, your ruler Saturn is in Aquarius and forming a convincing trine to communication planet Mercury and the North Node, the symbol for your destiny, driving your determination to share your innovative ideas with others even if their eyebrows raise as soon as you start to speak. It won’t take too long before they are reaching into their pockets to pay you for your genius. Generous Jupiter also enters compatible Pisces on Thursday, May 13, until the end of July before backing into Aquarius again. Use this time to prime the pump in terms of your outreach and networking so that when Jupiter comes back around at the end of the year, you will be a name or a face that others will forever remember. Your efforts are about to fruitfully paying off.

Don’t miss as much as a single detail and it will be the very thing that sweetens the pot!

Aquarius

Jan 20 - Feb 18

Week of May 12 ~ The journey of life can send the Soul through its fair share of paces. Task master Saturn has been transiting through your sign and while he has been in constant stress to Uranus in Taurus, making the world feel wobbly with every step, he is forming a securing trine to expressive Mercury and the North Node , in fellow air sign Gemini, earning you greater rank in the world and helping you to build upon your confidence. Loving Venus is also in fellow air sign Gemini and will merge with the North Node on Monday, May 17, to further validate what you have been pouring your heart into. Action Mars is in sensitive Cancer and while Mars can have you feeling overly vulnerable in this position, his supportive link to Uranus in Taurus could have one deliberate move turning your lights on again. Generous Jupiter exits your sign and enters Pisces on Thursday, May 13, until the end of July when it backs into Aquarius again. You will benefit from his presence either way as this shift into Pisces could help you expand your resources or earnings to take some of the pressure off. At the very least, it can energize the search for ultimate meaning via your inner travels, a feeling that nothing on Earth can touch. Timeless teachings never grow old.

Feel your way to a heavenly field and your fortune will be found!

Pisces

Feb 19 - Mar 20

Week of May 12 ~ Everything shifted late last month when action Mars entered fellow water sign Pisces. We went from feeling detached in some cases to overly sensitive and deeply emotional. However, with Mars in Cancer, this allows you to dial into your strengths and to use your emotion to drive more courage and conviction. Mars united with radical Uranus in Taurus on the day of the New Moon, Tuesday, May 11, and is setting a trend this week for you to plug into so your Soul can recharge. To add to your celestial favor, generous Jupiter enters your sign on Thursday, May 13, where it will be until the end of July before retrograding back into Aquarius again. However, Jupiter’s presence will remind you of your greatness and of your ability to tap into higher realms for guidance and grace. Saturn’s position in Aquarius is also strengthening your center with his impressive trine to Mercury and the North Node in Gemini, in your house of home and the emotional body, gifting you with an objective lens to see your journey from an enlightened perspective. Loving Venus crosses over the North Node on Monday, May 17, potentially blanketing you with blessings.

Look no further!
