What’s Going On? 2020?

April 21, 2020

As astrologers we learn to study cycles, and apply what we see in the heavens to life here on earth. Personally I have a lot of questions about what’s happening right now since I’ve never lived through a pandemic before, but here is what I do know: For the first time in 200 years Jupiter and Saturn will…

Writing my Memoir, Star Sisters.

May 17, 2019

If someone had told me in 2008 when I impulsively went to take a class at the Loft Literary Center that I would be writing and publishing a memoir, I would have told them to stop being ridiculous.  If they’d told me that it would take over ten years to finish that book, more disbelief…

A Death Chart Story

December 4, 2017

Megan leaned forward and pulled another tissue from the box.  As she wiped her eyes a gust of cold air blew through the closed window of my office. “Feel that?” She said. “It’s Jerry’s ghost” she looked at me. “I feel him near me all the time.  Does the chart say anything about that?” I…
