About Me

I am a professional astrologer here to help you find a greater understanding of your inner and outer self through the reflection in your horoscope.

      Since childhood I have loved to look at the night sky and ponder on the planets.  I instinctively knew that there was a resonance between the  movement of the planets and our own feelings and actions in life.  Over time and through much study I've developed the gift of understanding how the horoscope reflects the most profound aspects of ourselves, and I've been able to help many people with these elucidations. These inner dimensions seen in the horoscope represent what we "bring to the table", what we have to offer, and what we "work with", individually and with others.  It is not fate which I see in the horoscope, but our own ability to find direction, self-esteem, and creativity.

 I've studied under the tutelage of one of the greatest astrologers, Noel Tyl, and I've learned so much from him and many other astrologers. I earned a BA in Social Science in 2015, which helped me have a greater understanding of the human situation in our world.

 I have written a book to help those studying astrology to approach the horoscope as a study of our key emotions.  My book, "Emotional Dimensions of Astrology" is published by the American Federation of Astrologers, one of the earliest founders in the U.S. for astrological credentials and publishing. 

  Currently I am the secretary for the NCGR chapter of astrology in the Sacramento area in California, and I live with my husband in the foothills of the great Sierra Nevada mountains.  We enjoy 8 grandchildren, though they are growing up way too fast.

For those who want to see my horoscope, I was born October 23, 1950 in Bakersfield, California at 8:40 in the morning

My Services


Most astrologers today use the word "consultations" to describe what they do, and it is a good word for the time spent between astrologer and client.  The term "reading" is also correct because it does take a good bit of intuition along with the years of astrological study. "Elucidation" is another good word because it is the task of the astrologer to shine a light on the subject of you, and help you to see your self in a more objective light while still helping you recognize the emotions that live within you.  I will share with you what the horoscope suggests about the inherent energies within your life, and how the choice for positive expression will lead to your unique creativity.  I will not try to teach you astrology, unless you already understand some of it and you ask me to clarify it in that way.  In most cases, I am just the translator of what is there.  Please know it is important for me to have your correct birth time, preferably from a birth certificate.   The readings sometimes takes longer than an hour, but one hour is usually enough.  I can address any concerns that are current to you or in your life in general. I can also look at the horoscope of someone who is important to your well-being, but bear in mind it can spread our time very thin if we include someone else too much. Our consultation can take place on the phone or on Facebook messenger or at Zoom, but any recording is generally your responsibility.  


Life Reading

$150.00    go to the services page to pay

A life reading always includes some mention of the dynamics in your early home. I can see these things in your horoscope and I will ask you about them, because they are the foundation of your early emotions which contribute so much to everything you do and all that you are.  We will discuss the suggestions of challenges and promises within your life, and how these emotional forces have propelled or hindered your desire to live your life fully, to love, create, and contribute.   Life-readings include your current life events, motives, and future goals, and any ongoing relationship or work-related or health complications.  A consultation takes at least one hour on the phone or Zoom meeting. I am completely flexible to include any of your questions. I put a lot of work into seeing your chart, and use many measurements on your horoscope ahead of our scheduled time together.  I do not record the consultation or normally email any charts to you or write-ups.  You are welcome to record us from your end. Thank you! Please contact me first through email, and then continue to the services 


Astrology ever after

$100.00   go to the services page to pay  

If you have already had a life-reading or introductory reading with me, then you may want another evaluation of your journey called life at another time.  There are always newer and richer versions of ourselves.  Things happen.  Sometimes we grow wildly or we instead feel stuck in decisions we didn't really want to make.  A review is good, especially around our birthday every year.  

Extraneous information


If you have already had a life-reading with me, you might want to go into more depth about something, or even ask a different question. This reading is not meant to be a whole review of what is coming up next in your life or to address any complex situations that you've suddenly become aware of. In this session we can spend up to an hour together, but I will not be doing any new study of your chart. Please email me first with what you have in mind so that I can see if this service will work for you.


ALSO... If someone wants to use this time with me for learning astrology, we can look at a horoscope together, and I will go through some of the astrology in a teacher-student sort of way. This is, of course, not meant for trying to pin down if a person has done something wrong, etc. It is fine with me if you pass along to that person what you have learned as a reading, whether or not you charge them for it. When I was a student of the great master astrologer Noel Tyl, he had this service for his students, and he did not charge very much for it. I will not just be dictating to you what the chart means. I will be helping you learn how to see it. Come prepared by knowing in advance the basics of signs and planets. It works best if it is the chart of someone you already know.  You can give me the birth data (birth time required), and I can email you a copy of the chart so that we can study together. I understand that this would be expensive as a tool for "learning  by the hour", but in that case, you might pass along some of the charge to them.  No need to give me any of the credit for what you have learned.


I will possibly be offering an actual teaching program sometime in the near future.

Please email me to request a reading, and I will try very hard to reply within 24 hours. You can include any questions you have, or mention any current situations you are wanting to address, but there is no need for long stories to fill me in.  Blessings to all with much love.
