When I started my love affair with astrology in 1968 I never suspected it would take over my life. I guess that is what happens when you have a passion for something, you become obsessed. (Obsession is ruled by the planet Pluto by the way.) After all the studying, doing astrology readings and teaching, astrology is just the way I look at life now period. What a life it is and what a life we all have, filled with portent and meaning at every turn if we only have a way to think about it. Astrology has always given me (and my clients) a wonderful perspective because it’s hard to get a handle on things, to really sit back and become the observer of your own life, while you are living it. The astrological natal chart is a personal compass and the best road map I have found when I am trying to get from here to where ever. When I am out in the woods or in town observing life, astrology is a way to describe not only what is, but what is happening and why. Every process in nature and that includes human nature, has an astrological category, like a ruling planet or sign that helps me to connect with it and get more insight and here I will share that as I may.
