  1. Hi:

    I am not an astrologer, and I wonder how can I calculate what my Earth Sign is based on my birth date and time?


    1. Hi Molly!
      Sorry I am so slow to answer. Life has been crazy for me this year. In answer to your question, you do not have to be an astrologer to get your Earth sign. It is easy. What ever your Sun sign is, the opposite sign is your earth sign. Look at any natural zodiac wheel, that is, one that starts with Aries and look to the one that is 180 degrees from your sign. The opposite of Aries is Libra, etc. If you still have any trouble, drop me another line and tell me your Sun and I will answer a lot faster this time! Thanks.C

  2. I began studying astrology in May 2021. At the end of my first week, I wondered: how is possible that acknowledge is given to the influence of planets (including Sun, Moon and Stars) 220,000+ miles to light years away, but ignore the influence of the one planet so close to us that we literally sit and stand upon it??? That’s how I came across your book. I’m continuing my studies, but I’m curious to know if you can direct me to any chart-creating software that allows for the inclusion of Earth without resorting to heliocentric charts which include Earth but omit Sun.

    1. Hi Skip! I am not here very often as you can see from the slow reply. Sorry about that. Solar Fire astrology software is the Cadillac of software for astrologers. It’s not cheap but it has just about anything you could want and fairly user friendly. You can include Earth, Chiron, even Vulcan if you want and control what stays and what goes. In other words, keep the Sun and anything else in a chart. Hope that helps. Thanks for looking at my book. I’ll start looking here more often! Cynthia

  3. Hello Cynthia,
    Thank you for your book Earth Rise. The whole topic is amazingly perfect for our times. I have been struggling to organize a process around this topic and you have done all of the work and it’s all perfect.
    Do you do mentoring or workshops on this process? It is most desperately needed.
    Thank you so much for your profound work.
