I’ve been studying astrology since I was 10 years-old. I remember standing in a new age bookstore with my mom on 88th street and Columbus Avenue looking for the perfect book to learn astrology from.

A salesgirl recommended “Write Your Own Horoscope” by Joseph Goodavage.

My mom bought me the book and I took it home. I spent hours reading about moon signs. I knew my moon was in Virgo so that meant that I couldn’t stop thinking and analyzing.

I looked up everyone’s birthday I knew.
I was ravenous for astrological knowledge. I was unstoppable.

My love for astrology continued into high school, college and adulthood.

I would look up anyone’s chart who was interested on Astro.com

I had a few formal astrological readings where I had my chart formally done. One was by a reiki practitioner and healer, Rosie, and another with Christine, an astrologer that I used to cat sit for.

Despite my passion for astrology, I’ve never had a formal teacher or astrological mentor.

When I went to BlogHer, I was at it again!
I did countless people’s charts including one of the co-founders of BlogHer.

I knew this was my calling.

I contacted Christine, who had moved out to California. I asked her if she would be my mentor.
“Oh sweetie, I would love to help you, but I literally just don’t have the time.”
Christine is studying in a holistic psychology school and raising a little girl.

Though she couldn’t be my mentor, she did point me in the right direction. She recommended a local astrology organization that offered classes!

I checked out the site, and I found a teacher. I am so excited!

My first private lesson starts in September.

If I’ve ever done your chart, you know how much I love this stuff.

This is my calling.

Wish me luck.

What sign are you?
