• Astrology of Paul McCartney

    Since music and astrology are my two obsessions, I’m in the mood to look at some iconic artists. Last month I wrote about Lady Gaga’s chart and I wanted to honor Paul now. Sir Paul McCartney, that is. Paul happens to be important to me personally for several reasons. His birthday is June 18th and mine is June 17th, so we are Gemini almost twins. But more than that, I was a teenager when the Beatles emerged, and they helped me grow up. When “I Want to Hold Your Hand” came out, I became an officia…

  • Astrology of Lady Gaga

    Ok, I’m making a confession: my two obsessions are astrology and music. So why not combine the two of them. To enhance this article, I have Lady Gaga’s music blaring in the background. The current track that is playing is, “I was born this way”. Her lyrics say that we are all Superstars and I agree with her. Each of our personal astrology charts show that we were born this way and it is our destiny to become that grand person. I believe that if we are living our chart to the fullest . . . we gro…

  • Archie's Astrology Chart

    The world has been watching Meagan Markle’s bump with a beaming Prince Harry next to her. We now have a new royal baby named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Of course, I had to take a look at little Archie’s chart and was delighted with what I found. So for all those anglophiles who also love astrology . . . this is for you. Archie was born on May 6, 2019 at 5:26 a.m. in London. He is a double Taurus with his Sun and Moon both in that sign of luxury. His Moon is in intelligent Gemini and he…

  • My Beginning as an Astrologer

    Many people have asked me how I got started in astrology, so I thought it would be a good story to tell. I was lucky as a child to spend a lot of time with my two great aunts. One of my aunts, the eccentric one, had an interest in eastern philosophies and astrology. There were astrology symbols around the house that caught my eye as a very young child. In fact, this aunt had her chart done in 1927 by the famous astrologer, Evangeline Adams. I am fortunate to have that chart in my possession toda…

  • Chinese Astrology: Year of the Earth Pig 2019

    Welcome to the Chinese New Year! On February 4th, the Earth Pig will take over 2019, at least in Chinese astrology. It is said that a Pig year brings goodwill and prosperity and is one of the most beloved animals in their Zodiac. I have an Asian friend and called this the year of the Boar. She corrected me and said the Boar was too hard or mean of an image and she preferred to call it the Piggy and she always looks forward to a Piggy year. So Piggy it is. The Chinese New Year starts on a differe…

  • Preview of 2019 or Capricorn, Capricorn, Capricorn

    We have the New Year of 2019 upon us and this is a good time to take an astrological peak at what’s coming up for us all. The main astrological trend now is an important grouping of planets in Capricorn that will be there into 2020. At the peak of this Capricorn era, there will be five planets in that sign. That’s fully half of the Solar System in one place. No, that doesn’t happen often, but it does occur. So why is this one so important? It is made up of the slowest planets and therefore is ra…

  • Astrology During Capricorn

    The Sun enters the sign of Capricorn on December 21st at 3:24 p.m., Mountain Time. Capricorn is an earthy earth sign and is associated with the taskmaster, Saturn. I’ve named Capricorn the Executive of the Zodiac. If you want a big project done, and on time, ask a Capricorn. Their planet Saturn is Mr. Responsibility and his work ethic transfers to Capricorn very naturally. The first day of Capricorn always marks the Winter Solstice. So December 21st will officially be the first day of the new se…

  • Venus Found Her Voice

    The infamous Venus Retrograde in Scorpio has just ended and it seems she found her voice. In my last article, called “Venus Retrograde Gone Wild”, there was a line explaining that this alignment was like “A scorned woman seeking revenge”. When I wrote that line, it just jumped out of me without thinking about it. At the time it seems pretty extreme, but I can see now that it was precisely accurate. The world has change since that recent Venus Retrograde and I don’t think it will ever be the same…

  • Venus Retrograde Gone Wild

    Venus is all about love and beauty, right? Well, not all the time. Venus is going to the wild side now because of a combination of factors. This is so unusual, that it warranted an entire article to tell her story. So why is this retrograde so strange? The main reason this Venus retrograde is so powerful is where she is doing her backwards dance in the Zodiac. She happens to be triggering off a very revolutionary Grand Square between planets in the sky her entire retrograde. So we’ll have 3 mont…

  • My New AstroMap

    When you move or travel somewhere other than your birth place, your Astro Map changes too. Ok, that’s my nickname for Astro*Carto*Graphy, which is quite a mouthful. The more I get to know my chart as it relates to travel, the more amazed I am. This last year was my biggest year of travel in a long time. I went to India to receive my award in New Delhi. Then I spent the summer in Barcelona, Spain. Being in two new places gave me a good chance to see how different I felt in each location. First I …

  • Change in Latitude = Change in Attitude

    Barcelona was my home for the summer and I knew the long trip would be life changing. The rebel planet, Uranus, is playing with my chart a lot now, which always creates something new. It can be a new home, a new style and a new haircut. But it also goes much deeper to bring a new awareness of who we are inside and how we connect with the world. I was expecting a new lifestyle, new friends and new clothes, but I wasn’t expecting a new relationship with the sky. As many people know, I have a big b…

    So what is a Blue Moon? When there are two Full Moons in one month, the second one is called a Blue Moon.
