Bear Ryver, astrologer | Service Offerings
When you book a session with Bear you’re getting a certain amount of his undivided attention. Essentially, there’s a only a few different types of consultations: astrology general, astrology with a particular focus, and tarot.

Essential Information

All sessions with Bear are conducted via Zoom by default. If you prefer a more a platform with better encrypted options; or if you're local to him and you'd like to arrange to meet in person, please reach out to Bear directly.

You'll have the option to record on your own device. Included in the price of consultation is a follow-up meeting to review any follow-up questions that emerge after your session. It's optional, and you're welcome to email those if you prefer (knowing that Bear is better in realtime than by inbox).

Sessions start at 30-minutes / $100 for new client sessions.

Sliding-scale sessions and pay-by-donation sessions are available for new and returning clients alike.

Recording Sessions

A couple of clients have asked about session recordings. It's not essential to have a recording of your session, but it's a great idea for a lot of reasons.

Because of file size, and the overhead time and costs involved with Bear handling the file directly, the preference is for you to record on your own device if that's possible. You don't have to wait, and Bear doesn't have to store terabytes of video files.

If it's not, and you'd like a recording, that's a-okay. He'll send you a link to download the recording of your session within 3 - 5 days in most cases. If it's been awhile, and you suspect ADHD may have eaten his homework, feel free to send an email with a gentle request.

Please Note:

Bear doesn't bite! He's a person too. If something comes up, just reach out. He's committed to being of service and building reciprocal relationships of trust – he's happy to work with you if you just communicate with him.
