I specialize in relationships, the 7th House (Marriage, Partnership and Open Enemies; ... i.e., the Shadow in us all) and aspects to Venus and the ruler of the 7th house.
By midlife we all realize certain relationships are repeating. Why you may ask yourself is this happening to me again? Usually it's our own Shadow knocking on our door begging us for acceptance and integration. We can only see this in the mirror of this person the Universe has provided for us to see our unknown selves.
I help people who have given up on relationships, who are frustrated with what they keep creating, who want to know how to be a better partner and who may have heard the word “Shadow” and want to understand how to relate to their own Shadow.
I only give very minimal info. on predictions and recommend Liz Greene and Rob Hand's Transit Reports. I do however explain the current energy present making aspects to your birth chart.
Within a few years of studying at the Houston Institute of Astrology, I became very interested in the work of British Jungian Analyst/Astrologer, Liz Greene, and Howard Sasportas, her partner, now deceased. I ordered a Psychological Horoscope Analysis in 1988, authored by Liz Greene, and this report gave a description of my own Shadow. This part of my character was completely foreign to me until two years later, when I heard some audios by a Jungian analyst-in-training who was also an Episcopalian priest, Rev. J. Pittman McGehee, DIV. These cassette tapes led me to Jung’s work of analytical psychology and the information about our Shadow.
Since the late 1980s, astrology has attracted some brilliant psychologists and independent thinkers, and many are well versed in Jungian theory. I have studied astrology for 30+ years now and feel it will be a life-long project, as this subject is so vast. People who read about astrology in the newspaper columns have no idea how incredibly complicated and detailed it actually is.
Being a 5-planets-in-Libra woman, with the North Node in the 7th,
I have focused primarily on relationships, the 7th house (the marriage house, which is also the house of open enemies, i.e., the Shadow in us all) ruler of the 7th and aspects to Venus and Mars.
Libra, being the archetype of marriage, harmony and balance, is the part of all of us that seeks to form healthy relationships with others. We all have Libra somewhere in our charts, not just the people born under the sun sign of Libra and everyone's 7th house will remarkably portray your relationships.
For the past 30+ years I have studied analytical psychology on my own by taking courses at the C.G. Jung Education Center in Houston, Texas with various teachers primarily J.Pittman McGehee, D.D.; by studying under psychological Astrologers such as Glenn Perry, Ph.D. in Haddam Neck, CT, director of The Association of Astro Psychology (AAP); Steven Forrest, Evolutionary Astrology, “a form of psychological astrology which is integrated with metaphysics” and by reading extensively on the subject of the Shadow and primary source, Carl G. Jung.
However, what I have to share and teach others comes from my own life experiences. I also watch people. I listen to their stories and these Shadow projections are what I see happening to a lot of people in their relationships over and over. When I learned about the Shadow and started to consciously notice the experiences with others that kept repeating in my own life, my relationships with others and with myself actually got better.
I found out that when two people are committed to making their relationship work, who love each other enough to be willing to be REAL and vulnerable with their thoughts and feelings, accept each other for who they really are (not who they would like for that person to be or who they originally thought they were — a projection), this information can create a bond and a deep and lasting friendship and true love that couldn’t really exist before.
Words cannot begin to express what we have gained from your work and writing in such a short period of time.

Finally I was able to understand for the first time in my life what creates these huge gaps between people and that it is a primary reason for divorce, family disputes and friendships ending prematurely.
This work is not just for couples. Our Shadow affects our relationships with friends, lovers, husbands, wives, cousins, children, bosses, co-workers, parents, siblings and others. All of these relationships will improve significantly if you can become conscious of your own Shadow.
I decided to teach this class in a simple enough form so that everyone, not just those in analytical, psychological or astrological circles, could apply this valuable information to their lives. I have been teaching others about the Shadow now for 25+ years. This is my my goal and I wholeheartedly dedicate myself to sharing this information. My workbook is a workshop in itself and can be done alone or with a significant other.
Owning your own Shadow is not an easy task. According to the late Jungian analyst, Robert Johnson, author of Owning Your Own Shadow, it is a life’s work, and it takes a tremendous amount of courage and self-honesty. To do this work we have to subject our ego to ruthless self-reflection as the Universe continually gives us an abundant supply of these repetitive patterns. But the pain and effort, because Shadow work takes effort, is well worth it.
Experiences that have puzzled you for years will become perfectly clear once you can understand C.G. Jung's concept and own your own Shadow. You will learn to accept your own humanity and that of others, and in that loving acceptance, change is easier. We grow. And like Beauty embracing the Beast, we learn to LOVE.
So my sincere love to all of you and the hope that you will experience more authentic sharing and caring in all of your relationships.
With warm regards,
