We’ll begin with a detailed look at the meaning of the South Node by sign and by natal house placement. Then we’ll look at the meaning of having a planet conjunct either of the Nodes and talk about the importance of that planet. I’ll have the horoscopes of some famous people, and also hope to use examples of the horoscopes of those in attendance. It’ll be lively!
I encourage participants to bring their own horoscopes and those of several people in their life. Having this personal connection to the material will make it easier to digest and more relevant. It may even help you understand why you have attracted certain people into your life.
People enter our lives for all sorts of reasons. Through the techniques we’ll cover, you’re sure to discover deeper meanings of each of your relationships.
After graduating from the University of Washington (in Humanities) in 1969, I was a little lost. I thought I would continue going to school and get an MSW and possibly become a social worker. At that point a friend did my horoscope and it was a life-changing event. About halfway through his reading I realized I was looking at my future. Rather than going to graduate school. I signed up for astrology classes at the Northwest School of Astrology. I took every class Marc Robertson taught. There were times when there were only three of us in a class. Marc directed me into teaching and giving readings soon after I started taking his classes. Without his encouragement I’m sure I would have been slower to march into what was to become my life’s work. Long after Marc’s untimely death, he remains a powerful influence for me. I also met Joanne Wickenburg at this time. Along with Marc Robertson, she is one of the cornerstones of my astrological foundation.
Over my 40-year career in astrology, I have worn many hats. I co-authored The Metaphysical Handbook, contributed a chapter to Noel Tyl’s Consciousness in the Horoscope, and have written articles for The Mountain Astrologer. More recently, I wrote the introduction to a new book, Reframing Transits, by Joanne Wickenburg. (It’s available as an e-book.) I’ve been the guest astrologer for call-in radio programs in Hawaii, Vancouver, Bellingham, Seattle, and Arizona. I’ve hosted several astrological conferences in Seattle and been a guest teacher at retreats in the Northwest and the Yucatan. I even served a tumultuous year as president of the Washington State Astrological Society.
My clients throughout the US and in Europe have taught me much about life’s journey and its challenges. It would have had a far less interesting life without my fascination with astrology and the people it has brought to me. I was born with North Node conjunct Venus in my 6th people, including my husband, have entered my life through my work. After many years in Seattle, in June 2009 we moved to Portland, which has been a refreshing change.
I continue to have and to enjoy my astrological consulting practice. I give readings via Skype, telephone or in-person.
