Fifty years ago this year, I took my first Astrology class with my Mother. It opened the door to an unending journey to understand how the universe connects to all life through each of us. How did I come to have a passion for the Moon?
Two decades ago, I walked away from a successful creative career as an Emmy Award Winning Hair Designer and Make-Up Artist and a 6 figure income. I was in search of a great life, not just a great resume...and life as a human being rather than a human doing. I was living a very solar go-go-go sort of life. My work at this pace left little time for all I wanted to experience and express. I was burned out.
I moved out of L.A. to a seaside town in the Bay Area of Northern California. I lived in a nurturing community of gardeners, artists, organic farmers, and fishermen and watched the ebb and flow of the tides and the way the gardeners grew and the fishermen responded to the natural unerring ebb and flow of the tides. In this environment, I discovered my own natural rhythms. I hosted and created “Star Talk” radio show and a friend and I launched the very first website on the Moon (other than NASA's). These provided the inspiration and framework for my development of a simple practical system that enables anyone to harness and utilize these powerful rhythms. As all life on Earth responds and grows in accordance with the timing of these rhythms and innate wisdom, so I learned how to grow the all-around healthy, truly wealthy life I was born to live.
