Gavin Carruthers has been a fulltime astrological consultant and teacher for more than 30 years. He currently teaches weekly afternoon and evening astrology classes among the red rocks of Sedona, Arizona. His love for astrology began at a very early age, and by 1981 Gavin was living in Sacramento, California, where he co-founded the School For Cyclelogical Studies and the Star Experience workshop series with astrologer John Ruskell. He has lectured at AFAN conferences and at the “Steps To Awareness” held in Telluride, Colorado. In 2009 Gavin was a guest speaker at the “Finding The Gift In Shift” conference in Sedona, AZ and was interviewed on the syndicated Dr. Pat radio show.
Helping you turn challenges into growth:
Astrology is an extraordinary tool, capable of revealing profound truths about yourself and your life, and giving you an expanded perspective of your world. Gavin's primary purpose in being an astrologer is to assist you in knowing more deeply who you truly are.
Gavin's approach is supportive and positive, blending psychological and spiritual insights with his astrological perspectives. A reading with him is a co-creation, combining Gavin's expertise with your self-awareness, focusing on illuminating the choices available to you. It is neither fortune-telling, nor a method of predicting the future, but more a way of helping you align your life direction with the wisdom of your Highest Self.
Astrology is a spiritual tool which enables Gavin to see what it's like to be you and observe your challenges, strengths, talents and life purpose from a spiritual perspective. Another way of saying this is that your astrological birth chart shows the intention of your spirit, and how it has arranged circumstances in your life to support you to grow and flourish as a spiritual being. It is a process, not a fixed reality, and in that sense Gavin's primary purpose as an astrologer is to help others align with this spiritual intention and create better lives for themselves.
What makes Gavin different from many astrologers, is his belief that there is never anything negative in a birth chart. That is not to say that we don't all have struggles or difficulties, but those challenges serve a greater purpose and are tailor-made by our spirit or "higher self" from a place of great wisdom and compassion.
Gavin considers being able to work with astrology as a great privilege and honor, and is grateful to have found this extraordinary tool that can be shared with others in a meaningful way.
