My Bio

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


Planetary motion is the original source of the clock & calendar that help us to organize time. Yet only the planets tell us the qualities of time. So a FutureGraph is the first at-a-glance graph to help you prepare for and make the most of opportunity, challenges and change.

Above: sample FutureGraphs

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


With the first breath, all life is imprinted with the celestial pattern above, our electromagnetic DNA. The cosmic ocean of time we're immersed in has its own electromagnetic structure that continously shifts with planetary motion. We each experience this according to our celestial DNA.

Merriam Webster's Dictionary defines astrology as 'the influences of the planets by their positions.' Though most people associate astrology with the zodiac, planetary dynamics are the main event - the zodiac is meaningless without them. Like the weather, planetary motion creates dynamics we can't control, but we can better prepare for and benefit from if we know the forecast.


A century ago, during an explosion of scientific discovery, quantum physicist Niels Bohr revealed the essentially identical nature of the solar system and the atom. We know the atom functions as 'nature's building block', so what does that suggest about the solar system? Astrologers have been observing its function for thousands of years, while physicsts have not yet explored the question.

Dr. Bohr's discovery reflects the adage "As Above, So Below", carved into the Emerald Tablets of Thoth, reported to be over 35,000 years old! His interest in ancient teachings led to his rediscovery of their scientific knowledge.

"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

Time occurs in cycles, each cycle ranging from frequent and brief to rare and extended, according to planetary motion. Moon cycles are most frequent and last less than a day, while Pluto cycles are most 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 cycle has highs and lows, displayed on a FutureGraph as peaks and valleys. A peak indicates energy that's reaching a culmination or a resolution. Multiple peaks on the same day[s] indicate very eventful periods. For example, compare the political events of the past year to President Trump's FutureGraph. . .

And here's what's ahead for next year. . .

Whatever your political views, we're all invested in what happens in Washington. So here's the President's Celestial Forecast for 2018: The year ahead has a Saturn/Pluto vibe that extends into 2019. Saturn brings a weightiness and strenuousness; delays and resistance and hard-won successes; Pluto brings deepened insight and strengthened will, a powerful impulse towards transformative action and plenty of intrigue, generally through secret enemies. Late February brings a sudden shift or culmination.

URANUS: A volatile Feb builds to a crescendo late in the month, with a resolution of the previous year's tensions;
MARS: mid-Jun to early Jul is an especially long Mars cycle - tension, volatility, increased challenges, high energy;
VENUS: late Aug to mid-Oct bring some extended respite;
JUPITER: early Mar, mid-Oct & mid-Dec bring high energy and expansion;
SATURN: late Mar, early May & early Dec bring increased responsibilities/delays/frustrations;
PLUTO: late Apr & late Dec bring intense & transformative events

Many people are unaware that the 'world's first computer' is the Antikythera Mechanism, discovered in a shipwreck in 1901. Quiet research over the following decades determined that it calculated planetary positions over two thousand years ago!

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

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
Skip the intro and order a BirthPrint here.

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.

Most people associate astrology with the zodiac, but the planets run the show - without them the signs are meaningless.

"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

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 basics and apply the mechanism - sound it out!

Oh my!

The three simple basics you need to know to read any BirthPrint are PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS. PLANETS are the mechanism that manifests our experience of 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.

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

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.

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

Unknown to most people, 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. . .


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 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.

One exception to divine law is divine intervention.

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.
"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.""
"[O]nly 424 astronomers were allowed to vote, out of some 10,000 professional astronomers around the globe."
[A]stronomers are already circulating a petition that would try to overturn the IAU decision."
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 good 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
