How do we decipher who qualifies as a real astrologer?

How do we decipher who qualifies as a real astrologer? By Samuel F. Reynolds A recent BuzzFeed article featured four astrologers talking about how horoscopes and astrology are still a craze on the internet. It’s a favorable story on astrology. I personally know two of the astrologers interviewed. But the other two aren’t astrologers. At […]

SkyCode Horoscopes for August 28-September 3, 2017

Horoscopes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them. “Triggered”     First quarter moons activate what’s brought together at the new moon. Of course, this last new moon was a super powered as a solar eclipse. So, we’re bound to see more triggered off by what was loaded up and beyond […]

The Annunciation: Venus in the bosom of the King 1

A friend of mine, a fine pastor and Kabbalist, told me recently that today, March 25, is the celebration of “The Annunciation.” That’s when Mary was told that she would conceive Jesus, the child-savior. It’s celebrated exactly 9 months before Christmas. I never grew up with this celebration since the saints and feast days aren’t […]


A Nitty Gritty Intro into Harmonics

According to my Nitty Gritty Intermediate students, there’s not a lot available on the web about “harmonics” in astrology. One said she had never heard anyone talk about harmonics before I discussed it in my class. She’s right. There’s not a lot out there about this powerful and growing endeavor in astrology. But there are […]

Changing the world! One astrology conference at a time. Be part of the change!

  In 2015, Zyon Gray was among the first recipients of a diversity scholarship at NORWAC for people of color and the LGBTQ community. He was my roommate at the conference and had a great time there. Last year, Zyon returned to NORWAC without a scholarship, and roomed with a 2016 diversity scholarship recipient. His […]


Bridging Divides

That’s a tweet from my former editor at The Cut, where I publish weekly horoscopes. She might have made an error on the year she hired me, but she’s likely on the nose with what follows: I’m one of the first POC astrologers at a major/mainstream publication. In 2015. Let that settle, because it took […]

Saturn in Sagittarius: Bridging the divide between Us, Them, Here, and There

Saturn in Sagittarius: Bridging the divide between Us, Them, Here, and There I have to agree with the President. When talking about the growing concern about Donald Trump’s run for the presidency and the violence associated with his rallies, President Obama said this about Republican Party leaders, “How could you be shocked? This was the […]


Four Ways To Know It’s Time for Astrology Classes

When I started studying astrology in the early 90s, I was lucky to have a star-twin (someone born the exact day and year I was born) to lend me her books. (Yeah, she was already into astrology, but years later we kind of switched places: she turned against astrology and became a born again Christian. […]

Zodiac constellation

What’s meant by a sign?

Here’s something most folks into their horoscopes or signs don’t know. When you look up in the sky and you somehow have a night sky app like Stellarium or Google Sky Map to make out the constellations, you’re not looking at what we commonly call Zodiac “signs.” For instance, an hour or so after sunset […]


The Easier Way

My client would have heavy Saturn “sitting” on her spirited Sun by conjunction this fall, just like he’s parked on my own Sun right now. I described Saturn for her as the planet of “Sit yo Black ass down!” I say it this way most times when I know I have to lighten the mood, […]

Venus in Virgo: Study to show thyself…

Sensual Venus submitted to the sign of Virgo last Saturday. She won’t be there long before she begins her retrograde back into Leo on this coming Saturday. However, she still has something to teach those with Venus in Virgo in their birth charts (and those without) during this week. Whenever I think about Venus in […]


Why the diversity scholarships at NORWAC 2015 matter

This year I have the honor of presenting on “Jupiter returns” at the Northwest Astrology Conference from May 21st – 25th.   As you can see from the list of speakers, I’m the only person of color on the roster. This has often been the case for the conferences at which I speak. However, this can […]
