My Bio

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

While the clock and calendar help organize time, only planetary motion tells the qualities of time. The planets are the original source of the clock & calendar and all are mathematically precise and reliable. And a FutureGraph displays times of opportunity, challenges and change for any 12 month period of your choice.

Above: sample FutureGraphs

"To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven." ~ Ecclesiastes

All life is imprinted with the celestial pattern above, our electromagnetic DNA. A kind of alchemy determines this crystallizing moment. And the dynamic ocean of energy we call linear time is experienced according to our planetary DNA.

Free will reigns supreme and creates cause and effect within our celestial structure. Luck may seem random, but it's an earned effect, whether or not you remember the cause. And it's common for effects to be delayed until the next significant celestial cycle. A cycle begins when a planet above [moving] forms a conduit, called an aspect, to a planet within [stationary] at specific degrees of distance - an opposition, for example.

There are brief cycles and long cycles, with each planet moving at its own speed. For instance, Venus and Mars cycles are frequent and last about 3 to 5 days, while a Pluto cycle is rare and lasts 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. Multiple planetary peaks that occur simultaneously indicate very eventful periods. For example, compare the political events of the past year to President Trump's FutureGraph. . .

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


A century ago quantum physicist Niels Bohr demonstrated that the solar system and the atom are essentially identical. The atom functions as 'nature's building block', so how do you suppose the solar system functions? If Dr. Bohr expressed an opinion, I can't find it anywhere and he's long gone, so common sense and reason will have to do.

There's a lot of evidence that contradicts Official History and suggests that Dr. Bohr made a re-discovery. For example, the Emerald Tablet of Hermes contains the axiom As Above, So Below and macrocosm/microcosm, while the ancient Sumerians described and displayed Uranus through Pluto 5000 years ago! And few are aware that the 'world's first computer' calculated planetary positions over 2000 years ago - the enigmatic Antikythera Mechanism. . .

Astrology is Eternal

Precise, celestial calculations have been used for 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.

Merriam Webster's Dictionary defines astrology as 'the influences of the planets by their positions.' 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. As previously mentioned, PLANETS are the foundation of astrology; they're the source of mental, emotional, physical and spiritual experience; 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 every psyche is 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 esoteric realms.

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

Dr. Jung really said that and it is absolutely true. Unknown to most psychologists, he based Analytical Psychology on planetary dynamics. And his theory of the conscious, unconscious and collective unconscious has been profoundly helpful to astrologers. Dr. Jung kept his sources secret during his lifetime because of the growing academic resistance to esoteric knowledge, especially astrology, in favor of materialist, Darwinist views.

Though Analytical Psychology is widely respected, Dr. Jung's astrological roots are still unknown to most professionals. So analytical psychologists take months and years to gain insights they could gain in a day if only they knew what they're missing. Maybe in time, though prejudice against astrology is entrenched in adademia. Professional skeptics are gatekeepers of 'acceptable' ideas and concepts, censorship trumps evidence and ridicule suppresses curiosity.

Your BirthPrint is the one true map of your psyche that your spirit inhabits like a temple, with windows through which you express yourself and perceive the world while it perceives you. Though your spirit is limitless, being embodied brings profound perceptual limits and potentials you can scientifically analyze to better understand your strengths and weaknesses and develop more fully.

Childhood conditioning determines how you develop your celestial potentials. For instance, two people born on the same day and year, called 'astrotwins', will share similar traits, but their early environment will determine how they express them. Some may be amplified in one person and suppressed in another; or constructive in one person and destructive in another. Environment also determines genetic tendencies, especially diet.

For example, Angelina Jolie & Russell Brand are astrotwins, born June 4, 1975. They share similar dynamics and similar passions and challenges. . .

Below you can see their mentally-focused Sun-Mercury conjunction in Gemini; their tormented desires with their Venus-Saturn conjunction in Cancer, square erratic Uranus; and their emotionally expansive and fiery Moon~Mars~Jupiter conjunction in Aries, opposite intense and combustible Pluto, all defining dynamics for them both. . .

"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


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 activates the 12 house wheel of life. The houses your planets inhabit indicate the areas of life you're most focused on. For instance, 2nd house is finances; 4th house is family; 10th house is career. Each house corresponds to a zodiac sign.

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

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

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 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.
"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 big sister. My world suddenly shifted and began to expand. What a relief to learn so young that conformity is a lie. I took that book everywhere and read it to anyone who'd indulge me. Sun Signs is dead-on funny and eloquent, so nobody chased me away.

Some great astrologers were teaching within just a few bus stops, so my sister and I attended classes 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! 7 years later I began a three year apprenticeship with Paul while working as his receptionist. It's been a long and eventful friendship and I did some work for him again in 2015 until shortly after the presidential election. Paul's focus is political forecasting.

Through the years I've had my ephemeris and blank charts close at hand. I've constructed and analyzed thousands of birth charts for family, friends, acquaintances and strangers. And I've tried to inspire others to learn it themselves, in the face of two stubborn misconceptions: 'Astrology is too complicated' and 'Astrology is bulls*it.'.

I had no interest in putting out a shingle, with clients who believe they need me to analyze them. Not true. Nobody knows you better than you know yourself, so nobody is better qualified to tell you about you, if you just learn the simple basics - planets, aspects & signs.

So I tried to teach astrology, but those stubborn misconceptions got in the way.. if you think it's too complicated you won't see its simplicity. And the best how-to book was written over 75 years ago - Astrology for the Millions by Grant Lewi. None since have come close, and I don't want to knock writers who love astrology like I do, but what's up with that?

Finally, things came together. I met a 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 astro tools that anyone can learn quickly and eassily and hopefully with the same excitement I had so long ago with my first 'A-HA!'moment.

And it's an honor to share the Linda Goodman's name. My husband loves to say it's why I married him, but it's not, of course, it's just the best thing about him, after two decades. Linda Goodman's Sun Signs defined my path, so maybe it's serendipity, or maybe a clue that I have something of value to offer. So 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
