“Throughout my life I have always been fascinated by the stars. I had my first astrology reading in my 20s and couldn’t believe that a stranger could know me so well. I studied under several astrologers and started consulting when my children were very young. I used astrology to parent my own children (and still do, despite the fact that they are now adults). I have done many children’s charts over the years, helping parents to understand their children. Astrology can put you in touch with yourself. If we all took the time to understand ourselves and others, the world would be a much better place.”We may get commissions for purchases made using links in this post. Learn more.
