Welcome to my site. On this page is some information about me and the path that brought me to Astrology and many other subjects of a metaphysical nature.
I have studied astrology and metaphysics since 1964, as a young teen. My mentor and first teacher was my paternal grandfather, Ralph Jones who had studied astrology, metaphysics and theosophy since the 1920s. His influence on me was profound, to say the least, and certainly life-changing, which I have come to see and appreciate more as the years go on.
There are many stories to tell about our relationship. One particularly powerful event occurred in August of 1964 when I nearly drowned off the coast of Mendocino. I was in a kayak with a friend and we were hit broad-side by a wave quite a ways off the shore. We tumbled over and over in the water, unable to get out of the kayak (I don’t care for them to this day). As we spiraled in and out of the water, I seemed to have entered some kind of an altered state where time stood still as the reality of the situation I was in faded into the back of my mind and some other reality took over.
On another occasion, in my early 20’s, I was in a car accident where I rear-ended the car in front of me going about 40 mph (yes, my fault all the way). On impact, my head hit the inside of the windshield (it was a VW bug). As it did, I saw myself from outside the car, watching as I hit. I didn’t feel a thing. I was later told that if I had had my head tilted up about another 1/4″ I would have broken every bone in my face. I broke none. I truly felt as though I was being protected during the entire incident.
I have had several other unusual incidents occur in my life and whenever I did, my Grandfather was most intrigued and always there to answer my many questions. What an incredible gift to have this lifetime!
Gramp was my mentor, anchor and guide as I explored and began my discovery about the mystical world of metaphysics and astrology. Many times we would stay up late into the evening, him smoking his pipe in his study, surrounded by many books on the subjects that so pulled me. I have those books to this day and cherish every one of them.
Someday I intend to write more about my Grandfather and the things he taught and revealed to me. Perhaps even how he taught me to Astral Travel!
He was a wise, loving presence in my life of which I will always be grateful. And I feel his wisdom, knowledge and capacity to love unconditionally guides and inspires me in my work to this day.
I lovingly dedicate this site and my work to him, a true Guiding Light in my life. My hope is that my work in any form will serve as a Guiding Light for you as well.
Blessings and Light to you as you journey on your Path.
A few more things about me…
I was raised in Northern California, being the oldest girl in a rather large family (I’m one of six). For the most part, we had a “normal” and wonderful childhood. I have lived in several California locations (with a short stint in Oregon) including 18 years in mystical Mt. Shasta, CA. I have two incredible daughters and three wonderful grandchildren.
Being the eternal student over the years I have studied and delved into many different topics of a spiritual and metaphysical nature. Some of those are: The Tarot, crystals, mystical Christianity, Buddhism, developing intuition, and past life recall to name a few.
My Work History
I spent many years working in the corporate world. I have been a bookkeeper, office manager, assistant to a VP, User Relations Liaison, Professional Meeting Planner and mail room clerk (believe it or not, I loved that job). I have worked for Chevron, ISI (just prior to becoming PeopleSoft), a passive solar company, lots of car dealerships, and probably a couple I can’t remember. I have always felt that my many and diverse jobs in the “real” business world have helped me to better understand client’s issues and questions that are business related.
