“Years later, I still reflect on Jill’s reading of my highly Arian chart — in many ways, she provided me with lessons and themes that will instruct me for the rest of my life.”

–Karyn Kusama, film/tv director, YELLOWJACKETS on Showtime, Jennifer’s Body.

“Jill Dearman personifies all the best parts of New York City. She’s
brilliant and irreverent, soulful and sophisticated, and more
down-to-earth than most people you’ll ever meet. Her knowledge of pop culture and insight into the cosmic world is quite simply life-altering. She guided me into a new phase of creativity with psychic
wisdom and great humor. Jill understands the basic laws of causality and the cosmos with a laid-back intuition that will make you feel safe and very strong. Jill Dearman is a good person, a great reader of people and literature, and a writer of many gifts. It is a blessing to be in her presence.”

–Molly Rosen, Founder, Director: Brooklyn Writers Collective.

“Unlike many astrologers, Jill approaches each reading as a window into the elements that comprise a personality, not to “predict” the future. So when she gave a reading for my newborn son, it was fascinating to hear about his potential interests and personality, and I often think about her reading, as it has proven to be amazingly accurate. A great gift for a new parent.”

–Laura Staton, author, Baby Om (Henry Holt) and Yoga Bones (Hachette).


“I’ve Returned!”

I have been something of an astrological savant since childhood. In fact, my high school beau (and fabulous television scribe and producer) Chris Downey has long said, “You were New Age before there was New Age.” Always curious about the ancient symbols and systems, I took to studying them at an early age. My books Queer Astrology for Women and Queer Astrology for Men were published by St. Martins, then reprinted by MacMillan and have been translated into multiple languages. In the late ‘90s and early aughts, I regularly saw private clients, and my astrology columns were published monthly by major magazines including Ladies’ Home Journal, Mademoiselle, Redbook, and Twist. I also wrote a syndicated queer astrology column and a column for called Bedroom Astrology. In the early aughts I shifted into coaching and editing writers, writing fiction and history, and teaching at the university level.

Since I was a college student working as a counselor and then director at SUNY Purchase’s “Hear-to-Help Hotline,” a campus crisis intervention service, I have infused the art of counseling into all areas of my life. I have worked as a volunteer telephone counselor on New York City’s Gay and Lesbian Switchboard, as a Financial Counselor at Gay Men’s Health Crisis, and a counselor on the New York City Department of Health’s AIDS Hotline. My work as an astrologer, a writing coach, and a teacher all draw from the same intentions and experience.

During pandemic times, I shifted quietly back into deep metaphysical explorations, moved to be closer to nature and now I’m back! This period on earth is not for the faint of heart and with that in mind I am re-opening my doors as an astrologer. There are many astrological changes going on right now, and I would like to share some of the wisdom I have garnered with those who are seeking to elevate their consciousness and create a more loving, bountiful life and world.
