My Bio


"Every living being is an engine geared to the wheelwork of the universe." ~ Nikola Tesla





Above: sample FutureGraphs

A FutureGraph is a color graph of your personal planetary time. It displays the periods of opportunity, good fortune, challenges and transitions for any 12 month period of your choice.

For a brief overview of astrology, please keep reading; to order a FutureGraph, please click here.

Astrology postulates that the planets are the wheelwork of time. Planetary motion is the source of the clock and calendar that organize our time, while only planetary motion tells us the qualities of time.



Nikola Tesla put it this way: "If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration."



All new life is imprinted with the celestial pattern above, a kind of electromagnetic DNA. And throughout our lives we're immersed in a dynamic ocean of energy we experience as linear time. A FutureGraph is a forecast of that time. It's likened to a weather forecast - you can't change it, but you can know whether to pack an umbrella or a picnic lunch - maybe both. . .

politics aside, the planets don't lie . . .



Free will reigns supreme and luck and fate are earned effects, whether or not you remember the cause. [excepting divine intervention] And it's common for effects to be delayed until the next significant celestial cycle.



There are brief cycles and long cycles, depending on the planet[s] involved. A Venus cycle is frequent and lasts an average of three days; a Pluto cycle is rare and lasts an average of four years. The Saturn cycle occurs every 7 years and lasts an average of 6 months. Everyone knows the 7 year cycle, though few know Saturn is the instigator.

EVERYTHING IS ENERGY

About a hundred years ago there was an explosion of scientific discovery that excited the best minds of the time. During this heady period, physicist Niels Bohr discovered that the atom and solar system appear to share the same mechanism that presumably drives our supercharged world.


As Above, So Below

And there's compelling evidence that the ancients knew this. One surviving source of wisdom is the Emerald Tablet of Hermes, the source of the ancient axiom "As Above, So Below." The Tablet has intrigued great thinkers through the ages:

"Many of [Sir Isaac] Newton's manuscripts detail his thorough study of the Corpus Hermeticum, writings said to have been transmitted from ancient times, in which the secrets of the stars and the forces of nature were revealed, ie: As Above, So Below." Wikipedia



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


Ancient Sumer

The ancient Sumerians are the oldest known source of astrological knowledge. This 5000 year old Sumerian carving appears to display the eight planets, sun & moon. . .


. . .and convoluted variations of 'don't believe your lying eyes' are hilarious!


The Antikythera Mechanism

Undeniable evidence that the history books are wrong came in 1901, when a badly rusted mechanical remnant was discovered in an old shipwreck off the coast of Antikythera, Greece. After decades of restoration and analysis, researchers determined that the 'Antikythera Mechanism' is a 2000 year old computer that calculated the planets' astrological positions. According to an inside source, it includes Uranus through Pluto. . .



"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." - Researcher and mathematician Tony Freeth on the Antikythera Mechanism

Not re-written yet.



Did telescopes and microscopes also exist thousands of years ago? Were they destroyed in cataclysms recounted in worldwide ancient texts? As the saying goes, 'absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.'



Astrology is Eternal

The Antikythera Mechanism and the FutureGraph apply the same observable, precise and thoroughly mathematical celestial calculations used for millennia, to understand our electric lives through electric time on this spinning blue ball in space.



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

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


Above: A standard birth chart & a BirthPrint

Learning to read a birth chart should be simple and take little time, but baffling glyphs and confusing tutorials make it impossible for all but astrologers. So I designed the BirthPrint, a birth chart that comes alive with meaning for all and includes a how-to that prioritizes the 3 essentials.

For a brief explanation of psychological astrology, please keep reading. To order a BirthPrint & analysis, please click here.

Planetary dynamics are the foundation of astrology, yet most people think it's the zodiac. Go figure.

Beginning with the planets, there are three essential basics - and they're all you need to know to read any BirthPrint. . .

PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS
(sun & moon are called planets for convenience)

Here are three analogies for a quick grasp . . .

Imagine your mind as a melody..

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

or as a building..



The PLANETS are the building materials
The ASPECTS are the architecture
The SIGNS are the color scheme

or as a book..

The PLANETS are the letters
The ASPECTS are their arrangements
The SIGNS are the narrators



The 26 letters of the alphabet create endless stories, just as the 10 planets of our solar system create endless personalities. Simply memorize the essentials and apply the mechanism - sound it out!

A BirthPrint makes each psyche an open book. . .



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.

I haven't mentioned the ascendant until now 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 activates the 12 house wheel of life; 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. 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


A BirthPrint displays the structural dynamics that embody every spirit and determine how we perceive the world. Then childhood environment factors in - it determines our conditioning and also affects genetic potentials and limitations. For instance, if you're conditioned to eat well, you're far less likely to succumb to genetic weaknesses. [There's also a connection between genetics and planetary dynamics; for instance, the 'leadership gene' and an assertive birth chart, but that's a whole other subject, in its relative infancy]

So two people born on the same day and year, called 'astrotwins', may seem as different from each other as their conditioning and genetics [and previous lives] dictate, yet they share the same psychological dynamics and the same timing of most significant events through life.

One intriguing example of astrotwins is Angelina Jolie & Russell Brand. Both born June 4, 1975, they share similar dynamics and similar passions. . .



. . .ignited by their fiery Moon~Mars~Jupiter conjunct in Aries, opposite intense Pluto - look, you can see it for yourself. . .




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



'Psyche' is the classic Greek word for 'soul'. And Dr. Carl G. Jung was a closet astrologer who based Analytical Psychology - analysis of the soul - entirely on astrology. Dr. Jung's theory of the conscious, unconscious and collective unconscious is founded on the dynamics of the 10 planets - it's true!

PLANETS
THE 1st ESSENTIAL OF ASTROLOGY

The 10 planets consist of all the psychological dynamics of life, our electromagnetic DNA. . .

conscious:

SUN: will ~ vitality ~ purpose ~ ego
MOON: intuition ~ instinct ~ feelings ~ reactions
MERCURY: intellect ~ reasoning ~ communication ~ discernment
VENUS: desire ~ magnetism ~ creative/procreative expression
MARS: drive ~ assertion ~ stamina ~ physical/sexual expression

subconscious:

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

unconscious:

URANUS: deeper/higher intellect ~ ingenuity ~ genius ~ gestalt
NEPTUNE: deeper/higher intuition ~ inspiration ~ imagination ~ enlightenment
PLUTO: deeper/higher will ~ insight ~ transformation ~ regeneration
* to simplify - conscious, subconscious and unconscious.


ASPECTS
THE 2nd ESSENTIAL OF ASTROLOGY

Aspects are artery-like connections between planets that blend and modify the planetary dynamics. There are six primary aspects, from conjunction to opposition. The opposition is actually notorious, though most know it only as the full moon, when the Sun and Moon are 180 degrees apart. All hospitals, police stations & psyche wards know its polarizing influence all-too well.

SIX PLANETARY ASPECTS:
CONJUNCTION: 0 degrees: integrating; strengthening
SEXTILE: 60 degrees: facilitating; balancing
SQUARE: 90 degrees: frictional; challenging
TRINE:120 degrees: harmonizing; mellowing
QUINCUNX: 150 degrees: driving; frustrating
OPPOSITION: 180 degrees: polarizing; see-saw effect
[each aspect has an orb of effect, from 2 to 9 degrees]


SIGNS
THE 3rd ESSENTIAL OF ASTROLOGY

The 12 signs are a prism of personality traits that color the planetary dynamics. The signs are divided into four elements . . .

FIRE/passionate
EARTH/grounded
AIR/mental
WATER/emotional

The elements are divided into three triplicities . . .

CARDINAL [assertive] ~ FIXED [willful] ~ MUTABLE [adaptable]

ARIES: impulsive ~ headstrong ~ playful ~ independent [cardinal fire]
TAURUS: stubborn ~ sensual ~ loyal ~ hard-working [fixed earth]
GEMINI: communicative ~ mercurial ~ adaptable ~ highstrung [mutable air]
CANCER: sensitive ~ moody ~ dramatic ~ nurturing [cardinal water]
LEO: strong-willed ~ dramatic ~ creative ~ affectionate [fixed fire]
VIRGO: analytical ~ practical ~ hard-working ~ high-strung [mutable earth]
LIBRA: artistic ~ fair-minded ~ idealistic ~ attractive [cardinal air]
SCORPIO: intense ~ private ~ willful ~ passionate [fixed water]
SAGITTARIUS: philosophical ~ optimistic ~ adventuresome ~ athletic [mutable fire]
CAPRICORN: ambitious ~ hard-working ~ determined ~ competitive [cardinal earth]
AQUARIUS: inventive ~ rebellious ~ independent ~ philosophical [fixed air]
PISCES: imaginative ~ intuitive ~ sensitive ~ dramatic [mutable water]


Using a math analogy, knowledge of your sun sign equates to single digit addition, while knowledge of the PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS equates to basic math. That's a huge leap in understanding that requires little time and effort. And like mathematics, astrology can be explored far beyond the basics, but the PLANETS, ASPECTS & SIGNS* are all you need to know to gain endless insights into yourself and everyone else. You'll be amazed at how quickly you'll begin to read a BirthPrint - didn't you already read Angelina & Russell's, just a little? :)

10 PLANETS, 6 ASPECTS & 12 SIGNS ACROSS THE BOARD . . .

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]

Just follow the light of the moon...



To skip the intro and order a Lunar Fertility Calendar, please click here.

The Moon has been a symbol of fertility and motherhood since forever. The hormonal cycle even has a lunar beat. So it's only natural that ovulation should occur in sync with the Moon. Like all profound truths, it's simple.. every month when the moon is in the phase under which a woman was born, she will predictably ovulate!

This stunning discovery was made in 1956 when Dr. Eugen Jonas of Czechoslovakia came upon a fragment of an ancient Babylonian manuscript that read; "A woman is fertile according to the moon."

Dr. Jonas soon deciphered its meaning and, armed with this powerful knowledge, he opened a fertility clinic that quickly became an international success. Sadly, just three years later the clinic was closed by the new communist regime. Still, Dr. Jonas continues to this day to help women conceive through his organization CentrumJonas.com.

And you can even plan your baby's gender! Contrary to conventional wisdom, the mother's biochemistry determines gender, by deciding which of the father's chromosomes gets through. And the Moon sign at conception determines whether your child will be a girl or boy - positive sign means boy and negative sign means girl.

It's natural to think 'if this were true, everyone would know it', but money and power determine what's publicized by the corporate media. If lunar fertility became common knowledge, the bottom line of fertility clinics, abortion clinics, physicians and the pharmaceutical industry would suffer, to name a few.



And science has inadvertently confirmed the lunar fertility cycle. . researchers have finally confirmed that most women ovulate twice a month. Seems like front page news to me.

And there's more good news that turns conventional wisdom on its head. . .Dr. Jonathan Tilly of Harvard & Massachusetts General Hospital discovered that new eggs are produced in women throughout their reproductive years, just like other mammals. Dr. Tilly's discovery could even lead to treatments that reverse menopause.


For women over forty who wish to conceive, I recommend Enhancing Fertility After Age 40 , by Jan Andersen of MothersOver40.com. Jan invited me to write on lunar fertility.

The best book on lunar fertility is Astrological Birth Control by Sheila Ostrander & Lynn Schroeder. Written in the 70s, it's well-researched and comprehensive and available new and used at Amazon. It will answer any questions you may have . . .

"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 others, my interest in astrology started with Linda Goodman's Sun Signs, a 13th birthday gift from my wise big sister. My world suddenly shifted and began to expand. What a relief to learn so young that uniqueness should be embraced, that conformity is a lie. I took that book everywhere and read it to anyone who'd indulge me. Sun Signs is eloquent, hilarious and true, so nobody chased me away.

Some amazing astrologers were within a few bus stops, so my sister and I began to attend classes held by legends like Isabel Hickey and Francis Sakoian. In 1974, astrologer Paul Guercio moved into my hometown and taught classes within walking distance. What a heady time! 7 years later I began a three year apprenticeship with Paul while serving as his receptionist. We became longtime friends and I worked for him again in 2015-16, ending shortly after the presidential election. Paul's focus is political forecasting.

Throughout the years my trusty ephemeris and a folder of blank charts were always in reach. I analyzed thousands of birth charts for family, friends, acquaintances and strangers, frustrated that this profound tool is so grossly misperceived. There are two general beliefs, 'Astrology is too complicated' and 'Astrology is nonsense'. How did that happen?

I had no interest in putting out a shingle, to have clients who believe their birth charts are beyond their own understanding. "Tell me why. . tell me when. . tell me who. ." Imagine making a map of your home - who's going to read it better and more fully, you or someone who's never been there?

I tried to teach astrology, but couldn't break through the bias created by hordes of horrible how-to books. If you think it's too complicated you won't see its simplicity. The best how-to book was written over 75 years ago - Astrology for the Millions by Grant Lewi. None since have come close to equaling it - what's up with that?

Finally, things came together. I met a handsome Goodman with mad Mac skills who swept me off my feet, shared his perfect name and taught me enough computer skills to develop a set of easy-to-read astrological tools that don't require an interpreter.

I hope you find what you're looking for!



A Word About The Linda Goodman



Linda Goodman singlehandedly made astrology mainstream with her first book, Linda Goodman's Sun Signs, captivating millions around the world. Ms. Goodman is credited with starting what came to be called the 'New Age'. a fertile time of expanding consciousness. Though it was gradually corrupted by kooks and power seekers, it began with integrity and astrology.

Sun Signs is still the only astrology book in history to become a bestseller, consistently on bookstore shelves since 1968 (and the perfect birthday gift for tweens & teens :) When Linda Goodman's Sun Signs came out, she often appeared on TV, talking astrology and wisely advocating for it to be taught alongside the alphabet, to expand children's awareness and self-expression - sure beats pharmaceuticals. Linda Goodman intended to write a follow-up book on planetary dynamics - the foundation of astrology, but a tragic event led her away from her mainstream audience and down an increasingly esoteric path, so that crucial book never materialized. To this day most people associate astrology with the zodiac, oblivious to planetary dynamics.

I feel blessed to share the name of the woman who directed my destiny, and who still opens the door, with great wit and insight, for all seekers of truth. I include my birth name to avoid being mistaken for The Linda Goodman, though it still happens sometimes, along with accusations of opportunism. But I'm not about to change my name, though I may change my website to NotThatLindaGoodman.com - what do you think? :)
