My Bio

"The controls of life are structured as forms and nuclear arrangements, in a relation with the motions of the universe." ~ Louis Pasteur



IT'S ABOUT TIME!

Imagine having no clock or calendar to structure your time. Chaos would reign. Yet the timekeeper that gave us both and tells us the qualities of time is almost entirely ignored: planetary motion. So, isn't it time to hang it on a wall?



So I designed the FutureGraph, a full-color at-a-glance graph of your personal planetary time, to help you make the most of opportunities, challenges and change.

Sample FutureGraphs:



My teacher & mentor, poltical futurist Paul Guercio, inspired me with his TimeTraks, the first programmed graph of planetary cycles. Using TimeTraks, Paul accurately predicted Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders as the frontrunners in the 2016 election.



Paul & a shameless plug for Soul Portraits


A FutureGraph is different from TimeTraks in that more planets are tracked and the planetary cycles are laid bare. And a FutureGraph is self-explanatory, so it requires no interpreter, though it does include a general forecast.

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE PLANETS

Most people associate astrology with the zodiac, yet without the planets the zodiac is meaningless. The planets are the foundation of astrology and our cosmic guide through time, relationships and self-understanding.

sun & moon are referred to as planets for convenience


AS ABOVE, SO BELOW

A century ago quantum physicist Niels Bohr revealed the identical nature of the solar system and the atom. We know the atom functions as nature's building block, so what about the solar system? According to the ancient principle of the microcosm/macrocosm, the solar system functions exactly the same way. So it seems Dr. Bohr validated astrology and nobody noticed.


"The celestial bodies are the cause of all that takes place in the sublunar world." ~ Thomas Aquinas

HOW DOES IT WORK?

With your first breath, you're imprinted with the celestial pattern above, your electromagnetic DNA. Time has its own energy structure that continuously shifts with planetary motion. We each experience it according to our own celestial structure.


"Though free to think and act, we are held together, like the stars in the firmament, with ties inseparable. These ties cannot be seen, but we can feel them." ~ Nikola Tesla

EVERYTHING IS ENERGY

Astrology is the study of planetary motion with Earth as the centerpoint. Each planet governs specific dynamics of the psyche and of all life experience.


For instance, the Moon governs emotion, Mercury governs intellect and the Sun governs the ego or central self. So Sun signs identify the basic personality, while the 10 planets together form the complex dynamics of the psyche, of relationships and of time. We're most aware of our separate dynamics when struggling with inner conflict.



"Astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity."
~ Dr. Carl G. Jung


The 'father of Analytical Psychology', Dr. Carl G. Jung, was a closet astrologer who based his theory of the three levels of consciousness on planetary dynamics..

conscious: sun/ego; moon/emotion; mercury/intellect; venus/love; mars/will
subconscious: jupiter/aspiration; saturn/ambition
unconscious: uranus; higher intellect; unconscious: neptune/higher love; pluto/higher will

And as the planets travel around the cosmic 'wheel of life', conduits are formed at specific degrees of distance that blend and modify the planetary dynamics. The conduits are called aspects. There are six major aspects:

CONJUNCTION: 0° integrating; SEXTILE: 60° facilitating; SQUARE: 90° frictional;
TRINE:120° harmonizing; QUINCUNX: 150° driving; OPPOSITION: 180° polarizing;
.
Aspects that connect the conscious to the unconscious expand awareness and offer the greatest potential for growth. The most familiar aspect is the opposition. Known by all as the full moon, it occurs when the Sun and Moon oppose each other. Every month we're affected by its dynamics according to our own celestial chemistry.

Aspects connect the planets above to the planets within and define personal time; connect planets within your own psyche and define your psychology; and connect planets between individuals and define relationship chemistry. It's a lifetime dance with the music of the spheres.



And time occurs through planetary cycles, each cycle ranging from frequent and brief to rare and lengthy. Moon cycles are frequent and last less than a day, while Pluto cycles are rare and last about 4 years. A Saturn cycle lasts about 6 months and occurs every 7 years. Everyone knows the 7 year cycle, though few know that Saturn is the instigator.

Each FutureGraph displays the cycles of Jupiter through Pluto, the most significant cycles during a lifetime. Each cycle displays as peaks and valleys, with peaks displaying key change points of each cycle. Multiple peaks at the same times are especially significant.



A FUTUREGRAPH EXAMPLE

Whatever your political views, we're all invested in what happens in Washington. So below is President Trump's 2018 FutureGraph and his astrological forecast for 2018:



Saturn & Pluto dominate the year ahead, with Pluto extending through 2021.

Saturn brings a weightiness, with delays, frustration and resistance, so the few hard-won rewards are sweeter for the struggle. This year is especially stressful without Jupiter to lighten the load. But President Trump's natal Jupiter compensates, so the glass is always half-full. Pluto cycles bring deepened insight, strengthened will and a powerful impulse towards transformative action. And intrigue comes through enemies who plot in secret.

Secret enemies relate to the Pluto power dynamic attracting an opposing reaction. Whether it's a neighbor's dog or a secret cabal challenging your power, it's the Pluto dynamic in action.

SATURN: A spike on Feb 10, on the day of the President's Weekly Address, indicates a significant response; late Mar, early May & early Dec bring increased responsibilities/delays/frustrations;
URANUS: A volatile Feb builds to a crescendo by Feb 24th, with a resolution of the previous year's tensions; Mar 18th brings a related, harmonious resolution.
Note: On Feb. 24 President Trump called out A.G. Sessions during an Interview with Judge Pierro; that and other issues laid bare may prove to be pivotal. And on Mar 18 President Trump Tweeted his frank thoughts on Mueller, KimDotCom warned the President to act against the fake investigation immediately.
JUPITER: Jupiter brings high energy and opportunity from Jan - Apr, with burst of good fortune or some kind of positive culmination in early Mar, late Oct and mid-Dec;
PLUTO: 2018 is a transformative year that gains momentum through 2021. POWER is the keyword. Late Apr & late Dec bring intense & transformative events and/or circumstances.


THE ANTIKYTHERA MECHANISM



The 'world's first computer' is over 2000 years old and calculated astrological cycles. Called the Antikythera Mechanism, it was discovered in a shipwreck off the coast of Antikythera, Greece in 1901. Following decades of quiet research it validates the technological knowledge of the ancients.

"If the ancient greek scientists could produce these gear systems 2000 years ago, the whole history of western technology would have to be re-written." - Scientist & researcher Anthony Freeth on the Antikythera Mechanism

Not re-written yet.

Astrology is Eternal

Precise, celestial calculations have been used for many millennia to understand our electric lives through electric time on this spinning blue ball in space.

"The energy of the mind is the essence of life." ~ Aristotle


Above: A standard birth chart & a BirthPrint

"Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone." ~ Albert Einstein

Learning to read a birth chart should be simple, but baffling glyphs and confusing instructions make it impossible for all but astrologers to read. So I designed the BirthPrint, which comes alive with meaning for all.



The three essential basics you need to know to read any BirthPrint are PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS. Using a musical analogy, imagine your mind as a melody..

The PLANETS are the notes
The ASPECTS are their arrangements
The SIGNS are the instruments

Reading a BirthPrint is as simple to master as learning to read, and just as empowering. Like 26 letters create endless stories, 10 planets create endless psyches. You only need to memorize the essential basics and apply the mechanism - sound it out!



BIRTHPRINT ORDERING INFO:

solar birthprint & natal birthprint


There are two choices of BirthPrint: A Solar BirthPrint and a Natal BirthPrint. A Solar BirthPrint is used if you don't know your exact birth time; a Natal BirthPrint or a Solar BirthPrint may be used if you do know your exact birth time. Click here for more details about a Solar vs Natal BirthPrint.

Every BirthPrint includes an explanation of the three essential basics: planets, aspects & signs, so you can begin to analyze your own BirthPrint. And you may order a BirthPrint with or without a two-page analysis.

Prices:

Solar BirthPrint & one page personal analysis: $50

Solar BirthPrint without an analysis: $20

Natal BirthPrint & one page personal analysis: $70

Natal BirthPrint without an analysis: $40

Placing your order is a two-step process..

THE 3 ASTROLOGICAL BASICS:
PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS
As I briefly described above, PLANETS are the dynamics manifesting our reality; ASPECTS are conduits that connect and modify planetary dynamics; And SIGNS are a prism of personality traits that color planetary dynamics with the elemental qualities of fire, earth, air and water.

PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS are clearly displayed on a BirthPrint and make the dynamics of every psyche an open book.



To use a math analogy, knowledge of only your zodiac sign equates to single digit addition, while knowledge of the PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS equates to basic math. That's a huge leap that requires little time and effort. And like math, you can stop at the basics and do just fine, or explore it far beyond, into the woowoo realms.



KEYWORDS FOR PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS
10 PLANETS
THE FOUNDATION OF ASTROLOGY



conscious planets:

SUN: will ~ purpose ~ spirit
MOON: intuition ~ instinct ~ emotion
MERCURY: reasoning ~ discernment ~ communication
VENUS: love ~ desire ~ magnetism ~ creative/procreative
MARS: will ~ drive ~ stamina ~ physical/sexual

subconscious planets:

JUPITER: aspiration ~ faith ~ optimism
SATURN: ambition ~ purpose ~ discipline

unconscious planets:

URANUS: higher intellect ~ ingenuity ~ genius
NEPTUNE: higher love ~ inspiration ~ enlightenment
PLUTO: higher will ~ regeneration ~ transformation

Dr. Carl Jung based his theory of the conscious, unconscious & collective unconscious on planetary dynamics. To simplify, I refer to them as conscious, subconscious & unconscious.



6 ASPECTS
PLANETARY CONDUITS


CONJUNCTION: 0°: integrating; strengthening

OPPOSITION: 180°: polarizing; see-saw effect
[each aspect has an orb of effect, from 2 to 9 degrees]

12 SIGNS
PLANETARY COLORATION



12 signs are divided into 4 elements . . .

PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS



WITHIN THE PSYCHE
PLANETS: Essential psychological dynamics
ASPECTS: Connect planet dynamics
SIGNS: Elemental personality [fire, earth, air, water]

BETWEEN INDIVIDUALS:
PLANETS: Essential psychological dynamics of each individual
ASPECTS: Connect planet dynamics between individuals
SIGNS: Elemental compatibility/incompatibility [fire, earth, air, water]

WHEN MAPPING TIME
PLANETS: Essential dynamics of action/events/change
ASPECTS: Connect planet dynamics above to planet dynamics within
SIGNS: Elemental qualities of passing time [fire, earth, air, water]



As I mentioned above, Dr. Carl Jung based Analytical Psychology on planetary dynamics. His teacings have been profoundly useful to astrologers as well as psychologists unaware of the celestial source. Dr. Jung kept his true inspiration under wraps to avoid the academic ridicule that persists to this day, despite the great minds who've utilized astrology through the ages.

Dr. Jung's astrological roots are still unknown to most analytical psychologists, who take months and years to gain insights they could gain in a day if only they knew. But professional skeptics are gatekeepers of 'acceptable' ideas, where arrogance trumps evidence and ridicule suppresses curiosity. It's censorship in different disguises and none of it serves humanity.



SPIRIT: the immaterial intelligent or sentient part of a person
PSYCHE: Classic Greek word for soul
from Merriam Webster's Dictionary

Psyche is the classic greek word for soul. And planetary dynamics define and guide every soul and every relationship through time. Physicists note that electromagnetism goes on and on across the universe and makes all telecommunications possible. What they don't take note of is the mechanism for the magnetism that also animates nature's supreme transmitter and receiver - the brain. But that's okay, the learned ancients got it covered.



Your BirthPrint is the one true map of your psyche that your spirit inhabits like a temple, with windows through which you perceive the world while it perceives you. Though your spirit is limitless, being embodied brings perceptual limits and potentials you can read to reach your fullest potentials. The Creator has drawn us each a map!



Childhood conditioning determines how you develop your celestial characteristics. So two people born on the same day and year, called 'astrotwins', will share the same dynamics, but their early environment will determine how they express them. Some may be amplified in one person and suppressed in another; or creative in one person and destructive in another. Environment also shapes some genetic tendencies, primarily diet & lifestyle.

Take for example Angelina Jolie & Russell Brand, astrotwins born June 4, 1975. They share the same dynamics and have followed a similar path into the entertainment field. . .



Once you're familiar with the planets, aspects & signs you can easily read their dynamics on their BirthPrint, their mentally-focused Sun-Mercury conjunction in Gemini; their frustrated desires with their Venus-Saturn conjunction in Cancer, square erratic Uranus; and their emotionally expansive, explosive and fiery Moon~Mars~Jupiter conjunction in Aries, opposite intense and brooding Pluto, all defining dynamics for them both. . .



ABOUT THE ASCENDANT

The ascendant, also called the 'rising sign', is the sign on the eastern horizon at the time of birth. The ascendant is defined as your persona - it modifies, mutes or intensifies your planetary dynamics.

If you're wondering why I haven't mentioned the ascendant until now, it's because an EXACT birth time is required to calculate its position - just a couple of minutes off can give a false analysis.

The good news is, the essentials - planets, aspects & signs - do not require an exact birth time.* And though the ascendant is informative, it's not essential.

There are two kinds of birth charts - a natal chart requires an exact birth time, puts the ascendant on the 1st house cusp and involves the 12 house wheel of life. The houses your planets inhabit indicate the areas of life you're most focused on, with each house correponding to a zodiac sign. For instance, 2nd house is finances/taurus; 4th house is family/cancer; 6th house is service/virgo; 10th house is career/capricorn.

A solar chart does not require an exact birth time, the Sun is always in the 1st house and the houses are a silent backdrop to the planets, aspects & signs. All BirthPrints are solar charts, except by request. A detailed overview and analysis of your ascendant and 12 houses are included with a requested natal BirthPrint.

* The Moon is the only planet that moves more than a degree a day, moving about 12 degrees daily. When an exact or approximate birth time is unknown, using a noon birth time means the Moon won't be more than 6 degrees off, usually less. Not ideal, but workable

FREE WILL, CAUSE & EFFECT AND REBIRTH

Free will and cause & effect are the divine laws in which planetary dynamics operate. Though 'luck' may seem random, it's an earned effect, whether or not we remember the cause. The Creator set the planets in motion to manifest the intentions of every soul, then sat back to watch the show, so to speak.



The heavens bespeak the glory of the Lord and the vault of heaven reveals His handiwork." ~ Genesis

Energy never dies and rebirth of the spirit is part of divine law - what goes around comes around. . .and around and around. And we collectively create the world we return to, so we're truly all in this together.

Whether conscious or unconscious, we're driven by the spirit's impulse to evolve and grow. And because free will reigns supreme, whether embodied or in spirit, we choose the circumstances we're reborn into, always an echo of past actions and relationships - no square pegs in round holes.



Divine intervention is known to occasionally bypass karma.

The "Helix Nebula". . .so they say

And reincarnation is no longer speculative. For over forty years, Dr. Ian Stevenson did groundbreaking research into children who remember their past lives, shedding exciting light on the process of reincarnation. Since his passing in 2007, the research continues under the guidance of Dr. Stevenson's collaborator, Jim B. Tucker, at the University of Virginia.

Dr. Stevenson's meticulous, exhaustive case studies are all available in print, and his book Where Reincarnation and Biology Intersect is a must-read. And Jim Tucker has written a new book, Return to Life: Extraordinary Cases of Children Who Remember Past Lives.


"Yes Virginia, Pluto is a Planet!"
~ Dr. Richard Binzel of MIT

The vote to demote Pluto was underhanded and highly contentious, in arguably the most Plutonian time in recorded history.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/5283956.stm
"A fierce backlash has begun against the decision by astronomers to strip Pluto of its status as a planet. [T]he lead scientist on Nasa's robotic mission to Pluto has lambasted the ruling, calling it "embarrassing". And the chair of the committee set up to oversee agreement on a definition implied that the vote had effectively been "hijacked". Dr Alan Stern...told BBC News: "It's an awful definition; it's sloppy science and it would never pass peer review.""

http://space.com/scienceastronomy/060824_planet_definition.html
"[O]nly 424 astronomers were allowed to vote, out of some 10,000 professional astronomers around the globe."

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14489259/
[A]stronomers are already circulating a petition that would try to overturn the IAU decision."

http://phys.org/news/2015-02-nasa-missions-re-elevate-pluto-ceres.html
NASA missions may re-elevate Pluto and Ceres from dwarf planets to full-on planet status.




About Astrology & Me

Like millions of people, my interest in astrology started with Linda Goodman's Sun Signs, a 13th birthday gift from my wise older sister. My world suddenly shifted and began to expand. What a blessing to learn so young that conformity is a lie. I took that big, blue book everywhere and read to anyone who'd indulge me. And Sun Signs is so entertaining that nobody chased me away.

Some great astrologers were teaching within a few bus stops, so my sister and I attended lectures with Isabel Hickey, Francis Sakoian and others. In 1974, radio astrologer Paul Guercio moved from NY to our hometown and offered classes within walking distance. What a heady time! Seven years later I began a three year apprenticeship with Paul while booking his appointments. I did more work for him again recently, until shortly after the presidential election. Paul's focus is political forecasting.

In the late 70s, I attended New England School of Art & Design, with my ephemeris and blank charts close at hand. I've constructed and analyzed thousands of birth charts for family, friends, acquaintances and strangers.

In the early 90s I learned enough computer skills to develop a set of astrological tools that anyone can learn to use quickly and easily. And Linda Goodman's Sun Signs determined my path, so it's a serendipitous honor to share her name.

I hope you find what you're looking for!



"The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts.
The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins.
The moon is a great nerve center from which we quiver forever.
Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus?
But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time."
~ D.H. Lawrence
