I was born Jan. 12, 1960 at 11:47 p.m. in West Berlin, Germany. I discovered astrology in 1973, when I read Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs. Even then, I knew that sun sign astrology was too cookie-cutter for me. I graduated to Michael Lutin’s Saturn Signs, and struggled to comprehend Dane Rudhyar’sThe Astrology of Personality.
However, astrology fell by the wayside when I entered the working world. It wasn’t until my Saturn return that I again grew interested in what the stars had to say.
For several years in the late 1980s and early 1990s, as Uranus was moving toward a conjunction with Neptune in Capricorn, I was part of a group of mostly women that studied astrology on Thursday nights with Eileen McCabe in New York City.
When I impulsively started this blog in March 2008 I didn’t realize that I was joining a community of supportive bloggers. Little did I know that I was initiating a dialogue with readers who know more about astrology than I do and who share their wisdom. You are all my teachers now, and I thank you!
