I've been interested in astrology since I was a little girl, and studied off and on as a young adult. Around the time of my Saturn return, I decided to dive in wholeheartedly and pursue astrology rigorously alongside my artistic work. As an astrologer, I am skeptical, while being open, and endlessly curious to experience what this ancient art can offer us. I approach astrology with cautiousness and reverence, and a high degree of sensitivity, especially in my client work. I have a deep love for the study of character and calling in people, the psyche and soul, and the astrological factors at play in these expressions. I devote much time to astrological research, both in studying its origins and testing its many applications. See some of my mentors and influences here...
I served as president and vice president of the Washington State Astrological Association from 2009 to 2012. Located in Seattle, Washington, WSAA is one of the longest established astrology organizations in the United States.
I hold a Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree from The Evergreen State College with an emphasis in Transpersonal and Depth Psychologies and Expressive Arts. There I conceived, choreographed, and performed a dance titled: Letting It Go. My senior thesis: Investigating the Vessel, was a synthesis of work combining Jungian and post-Jungian studies, sculpture, dream inquiry, and an ongoing movement meditation practice called Authentic Movement.
Other work I cherish includes providing one-to-one emotional support for women living in prison. I have for the past twenty years worked [or volunteered] in varying capacities within the field of social services, including: hospice, physical and occupational therapies, recreational rehabilitation, and mental health. As an artist I work primarily in oil paints and encaustics (beeswax) and sometimes make jewelry and sculpture in metal or clay. Current interests: spiritual ecology and Chinese metaphysics.
