Time - An Astrological Necessity found in Saturn


An Astrological Necessity

Found in the Planet Saturn

Peninsula Woman

Jul - Aug 2002 

Time is one of the basic fundamental themes in the art and science of astrology and in all our lives. Understanding time is necessary. The job of building a conscious awareness of the value of time rests upon the shoulders of the planet Saturn.

Where Saturn is placed in your natal chart points you to where you must take the time to develop certain qualities and disciplines, so that you may evolve and grow as a soul.

Saturn symbolizes the process of responsibility, discipline, growth and change. The sign and house position of Saturn helps to show an individual where he is likely to feel frustrated or meet with difficulties. These obstacles are directly and intrinsically related to where your real growth as a soul will be found. The difficult experiences that are connected with the placement of Saturn are obviously necessary.

Neptune & Alcohol

Neptune & Alcohol

One Planet at a Time

Peninsula Woman

May - Jun 2002


Recently I was asked by Joann Vallo, the publisher and editor of Peninsula Woman, to write an article on the topic of Alcohol. I was very excited about this. There are many concepts in Astrology that can help us understand why we continue to battle alcohol in our society.

I have found the planet Neptune strongly associated with alcohol in my client’s charts. Let’s be clear,planets do not make us behave a certain way, but they certainly come to teach us. Neptune as a teacher helps us to see where we are in deluded or seeking escape.

The Planet Neptune
Neptune’s symbol is the trident of Poseidon, the Ruler of the Seas. Dreams, illusions, abstract thoughts and spirituality are all associated with Neptune. On the positive side, Neptune hopes that we will use a meditative state to gain insights and heightened awareness. Poetry, music, dance and movies are among the trance-like activities which this Planet favors.

Astrology - The Inner Sky


The Inner Sky

Peninsula Woman

Mar - Apr 2002


Astrology is an age-old science that explores the relationships between the outer planetary bodies(and their placements in the sky), with the inner terrain of the heart, the mind and soul of every individual.

When I first started to study astrology some 20 years ago, I realized that this Inner Sky was one way to find meaningful perspective in my life. As a young woman I felt the need to go beyond what the outer world was showing me and explore the inner world which seemed far more challenging and fascinating.

What I found was this. There are 10 planetary bodies in the sky. Each of these planets correlates to a psychological theme, and if tracked in our chart (a chart is based on our date, time and place of birth) a wonderful story will emerge.

The Souls Yearning 

for Purpose...

Versus Security

Peninsula Woman

Jan - Feb 2002

"When you do things from your Soul, you feel a River moving in you, a Joy."


At a very early age I realized I had a destiny. It was a bit easier for me because I realized what seemed to make other people feel secure (money, power, fame), did not have the same effect on me. I resolved then to set out and find a deeper purpose for my life.

I knew I had a choice. I also knew I didn't have the choice of pursuing a life of security and of "keeping up with the Jones' " because that didn't appeal to me. Maybe that is what made it easier for me and at the same time, harder. There was, no going back.

The good news was that I found there were people who were living their dreams and had a tremendous amount of joy and meaning in their lives. Their lives were not about Security. I set out to accomplish that for myself. This is what I found...

It's New Years! What Shall I do?


It's New Years Again!

What Shall I do?

Peninsula Woman

Jan - Feb 2001


It seems that the New Years Game is about changing habits. What is a habit? The dictionary says that a habit is "A recurrent, often unconscious pattern of behavior that is acquired through frequent repetition." To change a habit you must become conscious of what you are unconscious about. What is unconscious? Unconscious is described as "Lacking awareness and the capacity for sensory perception." By its very nature the ability to change a habit seems difficult. What should I do?

The ancients knew that it would be necessary to associate this time of year with a symbol that is about habits. This is why I believe people tend to explore their outworn habits at the New Year. They also knew that the above questions could be answered through our awareness and understanding of people born during this time.
