I love working with astrology and helping people with the cycles of their lives. In my thirty-five years of experience as an astrologer, I have helped people deal with difficult times, learn more about themselves, figure out a place to relocate, improve their relationships, and strategize about their career.

I have been writing a practical weekly blog about the astrological influences for ten years. The blog is written not only to help people make the best use of the planetary energies of each day, but to also grow in their knowledge of astrology.

The Sun continues to shine in bold Aries where it is exalted, calling us to new beginnings.

In the Stars April 5-12, 2020...shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon

March 20-April 4th was a period that harbored four significant, powerful conjunctions.
