I discovered my passion for astrology when I read Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs. I was nine years old. At 18, I worked up the nerve to have my own horoscope calculated and interpreted by a professional astrologer. That’s when I began to appreciate how powerful a tool astrology can be. Suddenly, the parts of my personality that didn’t fit the typical description of someone born with Sun in Aries made sense. There were so many other planets to consider! My first experience with a professional astrologer was illuminating and empowering.
I graduated from Wellesley College with a BA in Philosophy only because a BA in Astrology was not offered. I did take a couple of courses in astronomy. After graduation, I hitchhiked around Europe, where I’d spent part of my childhood. Back in the States, I landed a gig at a film studio in New York and eventually moved to Los Angeles. I found my niche in Hollywood first as a copywriter — and then as a writer/producer — of advertising for movies and television. I earned a small shelf-load of awards, along with a reputation for writing with wit, elegance and intelligence (and modesty).
I began doing astrological consultations in 1992, around the same time I started my advertising career. In 2000 I returned to New York and scattered my marketing pixie-dust over television news, with stints at WNBC, NBC and CNBC. When I started working in a newsroom, that’s when I began to notice the astonishing synchronicity of daily planetary patterns with daily headlines. Compelled to share my findings with the world, I launched this blog in 2009.
Meanwhile, I earned my professional certification from the International Society of Astrological Research (ISAR). I completed a rigorous masters program in psychological astrology, graduating with highest honors. I’ve lectured in New York and Tokyo, where the skills I learned in improv and stand-up comedy come in handy. My insights have published in The Mountain Astrologer, Serene Social, Daily Front Row and professional astrology journals.
I would be delighted to consult with you about your horoscope. We will have an excellent discussion together.
