I have studied and lectured on astrology, numbers, dreams, symbolism and other metaphysical subjects for over thirty years.  My interest in the mysteries of life started when I first became aware of the heavens.  As a child I would look up at the starry sky and wonder...how big is it?...how far does it go?...how can it not end?


My journey began on a fateful day when I was five years old.  I read my first sentence: See Spot Run. (This was in that ancient time before educational programs on television like Sesame Street.) I cannot describe the rush of power that flowed over me at that moment when I realized...I can read! I knew I had hold of something powerful that would open up the world I had wondered about.


By the time I was six, my most treasured book was the Golden Encyclopedia. It was over-sized with a glossy cover, sprinkled with small colored illustrations, and filled with wondrous knowledge. I carried it under my arm where ever I went. I have been mentally exploring ever since, and what a wonderful journey it has been.


I grew up in a Navy family and have lived in the four corners of the United States – Maine, Florida, California and Washington State – and some of the states in between. Once when I was in grade school, my family and I even lived in a quonset hut.  I graduated from Saugus High School in Massachusetts and attended the University of New Hampshire. Today I live in a wonderful small town with my husband and family and a passel of pets.
