One Year Ahead reading with Dru Ish

Somedays are diamonds, some days are stone.

There is nothing static about life, and the ground you’re standing on can alter how you respond to the inevitable flux. This One Year Ahead reading allows us to look back at the terrain you have been walking through, as well as that which you will cover over the next year and beyond.

As life is not a series of isolated incidents, this reading offers a detailed analysis of your birth chart within the framework of Transits (planetary movement in the current sky), Progressions (background cycles that unconsciously inform daily choices) and Planetary Phases (various techniques that reflect periods of time ruled by certain planets).

This 1.5 hour session will offer you a year long, month by month map to gauge when the best times are to leap and when it’s best to sit tight and take stock. Available as a video recording or via Skype.

If you don’t have an accurate birth time, please contact Dru before booking.

$175 – $350 sliding scale.

Duration: 1-1.5 hours

Testimony from clients about the Year Ahead reading

I was gifted a reading with Dru and it was a really unparalleled experience. I felt seen and supported in such a new, unique way. I feel braver at confronting uncomfortable situations and feel like I was given a road map to navigate the next year. No doubt the effects of this reading will positively impact my business and my heart and my relationships all year. It was such a treat to be given permission and encouragement to trust myself, trust the process, and trust the ride I’m on as long as I’m being honest and true with myself. It was just the signpost I needed and have never been given. Thanks Dru. You are a sweet and gentle talent. ~ E.B.

My second transit reading with Dru affirms why they are one of my go-to astrologers and soul-guides. Once again, they skillfully inter-wove several layers of interpretation (annual transits and profections, lunar progressions, and Venus progressions) into a narrative that was both coherent and complex. Richness of astrological interpretation notwithstanding, I had a strong sense that their technique was always in service of a deeper aim: to draw a horizon of meaning large enough to encompass future possibilities for my outer life, and intimate enough to recognize my deep-rooted, inner contradictions of feeling. I was also very impressed that they not only remembered stories and issues that I shared with them more than a year ago, but that they also knew how to course that lived information into possible arcs of action, based on their astrological forecast of this year. I felt their deft expertise as a joyful, companionable, compassionate witnessing – genuinely respectful of my autonomy. It’s no exaggeration to say that Dru helped me get through 2020 with my sanity and hope intact, and I’m sure that they will be a constant source of wisdom and encouragement as I embark on 2021, a totally different but equally life-changing year. You are such a gift, Dru! May you always be blessed and supported in your work. Looking forward to catching up with you again in 2022, and 2023, and…! ~ A. D

I just got my first natal chart reading with Dru, and wow! They’re so knowledgeable and insightful! I left feeling very seen and understood by Dru, and with a clearer view of myself and my own patterns and life path. I feel ready to take on the rest of my Saturn Return and my life with more insight and tools in my pocket! Thank you, Dru!! ~ E.S.

This reading deeply resonated with a lot of the current events of my life, giving me a more clear picture of what exactly is happening and helped prepare me for the future. Dru struck so many chords, and it was as if I was talking to someone who had known me for years, when in reality they had only read my chart. It was a beautiful session, and I hope to book another in the future. ~ P.J.

They’ve done it again! This is my second time meeting with Dru, this time for the year ahead reading. They are truly the master of their craft. They have a very clear way of communicating, and makes sure I understand what’s happening in my chart. They explained what’s coming up for me and what would be the most beneficial for me to focus on. Dru is so knowledgeable and incredibly personable. I can’t wait for my next reading with them! Also being american, you gotta love a good accent! ~ J.H.

I just had a “Year Ahead” reading with Dru and, like many others have stated, I felt SEEN. It was illuminating and validating. It was as though they could see the intricate colors of my life story. Their reading accurately highlighted what chapters have played (or will play) an important role in my next life cycle and explained why I have been blocked in some respects. Their warm and engaging personality had me blurting out my current struggles after only 4 minutes! There was understanding, easy laughter and gentle questioning that made it feel like a safe space – something of utmost importance if you are to truly reverberate with the multi-faceted layers of your own personality. Many times, in the past, I have found astrological jargon confusing and it would go straight over my head, but Dru articulated it in a way that I could digest and thoroughly relate to. I am grateful to have the recording to come back to, as it was a heart dose of information. What a gift, Dru! Thank you for being so genuine! ~ T.S.

I had expected my natal chart and Year Ahead reading to be insightful and moving, but what I got from them was more than that: empowering and emotionally validating. What I have felt were perplexing and sometimes burdensome parts of my personality and psyche were explained with brevity, compassion, and humour. Dru gently guides you to see that the things you beat yourself up about are part of your uniqueness, and offers advice how to manage and even nurture these along with your own natural gifts and talents. They neatly summarised their insights for me in practical language that I’m sure I’ll be taking to heart for years to come! Most of all, they led me to understand that underneath what has often felt like tedious years of sameness and mediocrity, deep healing and transformation has been taking place, preparing the soil for a season of renewal and abundance. Even in these strangest and most uncertain of times, Dru has given me much to look forward to and move ahead with. I will always treasure this precious time with her as part of my toolkit for what’s ahead. Thank you so much, Dru! ~ J.D.D.

This was my third reading with Dru, and as always it was amazing. Dru’s insights have a way of helping me feel grounded, and their readings always seem to be in sync with whatever is happening in my life which is so validating. Dru is so talented at holding space and offering astrological readings that are compassionate and inspiring. Moving forward, I will continue to have readings with Dru as they have become an integral part of my self-care and personal evolution. Thanks Dru! ~ J.D.

Amazing reading from Dru, I had never had a chart reading and didn’t really know what to expect, but I was blown away by the level of preparation. Dru has so much knowledge and their ability to lead me through all of the symbolism and significance of my chart and my cycle was truly a pleasure to experience. ~ M.R.

I’d heard about Dru’s readings through a few friends and was intrigued to know more about what the stars had in store for me. A week before my birthday, I was given the gift of a Predictive Reading and couldn’t wait. Dru was incredibly patient and diligent in preparing my reading, provided a comfortable space, and I especially appreciated the open dialogue throughout it all. It helped me better understand the reason my particular story played out the way it did, as well as equipped me with the tools to better take on the next year. I gained perspective and insight that I’d been searching for for years. It was a wonderful gift that I’d want to receive again in the future and gift my friends and family. ~ S.Z.

I had such a good reading for the year ahead with Dru. I nodded my head non-stop for the entire hour and a half the reading lasted because what they were saying resonated deep. Their guidance will definitely stay with me as it was profound and useful. They have such a great energy and is the kind of person you want to receive guidance from: open, kind and a beautiful human being. Thanks Dru! ~ E.C.

From start to finish, Dru treated our interaction for my Year Ahead reading with punctuality, courtesy, and uncommon warmth. Payment process is clear and straightforward, scheduling via Google Calendar prompt, and pre-session communication on different channels (website form, email, and Skype) with Dru themselves very reliable.  From the reading I got hard truths I needed to hear, given lightly and compassionately – the gifts as well as the burdens. I’ve been an astronerd for the last twelve years, and have consulted with many gifted astrological writers/readers. What makes Dru stand out is their immediate understanding of how chance and choice intertwine in their particular way for me. I unspooled parts of my life and they skilfully threaded those into their assessment of my chart, a “time map” of past, present, and future. She wove this wisdom into a practical and poetic list of themes that I’ll find easy to remember hereafter (I’ll never hear “sweater” and “swan” the same way again!). I appreciated her emphasis on my progressed Moon, delivering a message that I needed to remember badly at this time in my astro studies/”real” life.  What I appreciated above all was their genuine respect for the process I was in. They called it like it is, helped lay out my options, and encouraged me in just the right way. The conversation left me with a renewed sense of clarity and resolve. It hasn’t really “left” me though – quite the opposite. It’ll be staying with me for a long while. Thank you Dru! <3 ~ A.D.

Dru’s Year Ahead reading gave me incredibly empowering insight on the kind of work that I need to do this year to come into my own and to liberate myself from patterns that no longer serve me. It is so valuable and special to have an ally like Dru in my life and I’m so grateful to have benefited from her sharp, kind, and uplifting reading. From the first minute of the session, Dru exudes a warm and nurturing energy that lets you know right away that you will be held and that you are safe with her. They’re definitely an astrologer I will keep coming back to again and again at important turning points in my life for guidance, comfort, and support. It’s magical how their reading of my chart made me feel seen, heard and understood in a way that was completely free from judgement. Quite the contrary, I felt like the way Dru framed things about me (even the harder things to hear such as the challenges and the transformational work that I will need to do to grow) was tremendously positive and encouraging. Their affirmative language is so important especially because it is so easy for me to get bogged down and be hard on myself. In those moments, I can mobilize the thrilling and affirming vocabulary that Dru used in our session to be compassionate towards myself. 


I’m grateful that Dru lets us record the session — I will keep coming back to their words religiously. In fact, some of the things they’ve said have already become positive mantras that move me deeply. I also want to commend the way that Dru structured the session. They are so professional, and they communicate really profound and dense information in a clear and creative manner. They used lots of analogies to help me relate to what they’re describing, and these images helped me understand my patterns and behaviors even better. They also checked in regularly with me to make sure I was following what they were saying and I really liked that steady, grounding rhythm.  The word that keeps coming back to me as I write this is GIFT. Dru is a gift for your soul. Their session is like a big hug and a healing balm and an encouraging pep talk all at the same time. I am excited about my year ahead even though I know that there will be change and a hell of a lot of Uranus-related shake-ups because Dru framed it as *liberation* from patterns that no longer serve me. Thank you Dru, I cannot say it enough. I needed this. ~ S.N.

This was my second reading with Dru. I was pleasantly surprised when they remembered details from the first reading and it speaks volumes to how they approach working with their clients. This time around they answered any questions I had from the last reading (Year ahead) and helped me unpack and explore various themes found in my natal chart. Their words are kind, positive, and validating. I also recommend you record the Skype session as it is useful to revisit and reflect. ~ C.S.

I am SO grateful that I found Dru in this vast world – I am grateful that our paths crossed, grateful for Dru’s gift, and grateful for their view. My Year Look Ahead with Dru far surpassed any of my expectations – they wove an intricate story of my natal chart and my upcoming transits with beauty and ease. My reading was several days ago and I am still processing and digesting all of the amazing information that they shared with me. I so appreciate that Dru recommended I record our Skype session, so that I can review the information later, too! Dru has such a way with words – they were descriptive, palpable, and kind. I learned so much in my time with Dru and I will look back on my reading with gratitude over and over again. Dru – you’re simply amazing! Thank you, thank you for sharing your gift with the world! ~ L.B.

My year ahead reading with Dru was so helpful and encouraging. Dru was clear and vivid, down to earth and thorough in making sure I understood how everything worked and weaving together my chart, life phase, and current transits. I felt safe and supported, and it was so easy to be open with them and ask the questions that matter to me. I feel bolstered in my ability to address what’s happening and coming up in my life and I’ll definitely consult Dru in the future. However much I loved their writing, the irl (skype) experience was even better! So thankful. ~ C.S.

This natal chart and one year ahead reading with Dru was gifted to me by my lovely friend and has helped give me a map for my life thus far and where I’m headed next, through a big time of transition and change. It’s helped me to feel validated in why I am the why I am, why certain things are so important to me, and why I can’t suppress who I truly am in order to fit into a life that fits the mould. I recommend Dru for their gentle, caring presence, for their incredible insight & knowledge, and their ability to convey messages in ways that resonate deeply. Mind = Blown! ~ R.M.

My year ahead session with Dru was enlightening, empowering, and absolutely the best gift I could have given myself. Dru has a powerful way of seeing through to your core and handling that knowledge with a gentle touch. I have been recommending these sessions to everyone I know and can’t wait to do another myself. ~ S.B.

Dru gave me a Year Ahead reading a week ago and I’ve been thinking about it every day since. It was my first time having an astrological reading and I was impressed with how thorough she was and how much she taught me. Not only did I learn about my chart and my energies, but Dru took the time to make sure I fully understood the larger processes at play. I feel like I have such a greater understanding of myself, but also that I’m being more compassionate with myself too. Thank you so much for your time, Dru. You are a warm, sincere, wealth of knowledge! ~ L.H.

I have had my horoscope done a few times before I heard about Dru’s services. Those previous readings were overall good, and gave some insight in situations, but nothing compared to Dru’s work. I decided to go for the full reading (past, present, future) and never regretted doing so. When my horoscope was done, Dru took the time to read and explain my charts (you’ll get more than one chart – so great!) to me. Everything that Dru told me made sense. I was blown away by the accuracy, specially when we talked about some key dates in my life. They were really spot on – I could remember the important things that had happened in those time frames. Dru’s insight and explanations on what’s going on in my life right now (and into the future) has also given me clarity on some issues and helped me make up my mind on some big decisions. If you want a very detailed, spot-on (and fun!) reading, look no further. ~ P.W.

I found myself being quite astounded in Dru’s ability to ‘get me’ and to help me see and understand how my past relates to the present and to where I’m going from here. A few days after hearing Dru’s wonderful analogies of the ‘theatre of my life’ I texted her about a seemingly out-of-the-blue incident that showed me that indeed things were happening as she had described – that was soooo cool! It was such a gift to be able to hear her insights and the time I spent with Dru and those charts has helped in knowing what types of things are pending and some things are just meant to be. I found myself thinking about Dru’s session when considering important decisions about my future and it has really clarified my thinking about some important life events. I really enjoyed the excitement Dru has for her talents and how she soooo gets right into it. Thank you sooooo much Dru. You are such a sweet gem. ~ E.H.
