I was about ten years old when I asked my father a question that changed my life. Curiosity has always been one of my timeless qualities; it follows me around like my name does.


Dad –


How did this all begin?


My father answered, “every question and every answer is hidden in the stars.”


Little did I know, as I matured I would learn the language of fate and the stars to begin to understand the karma I was born under.


At 14, my father passed away due to complications with alcohol. Because of harsh circumstances, I had to leave my hometown and live with relatives with whom I never felt at home with. So began my karma.  I felt alone and misunderstood, but the night sky always comforted me. Somehow my dad’s words never left me and I began my youthful study of the stars with books I found on Astrology.


I saw the twelve signs in everything I did. Watching the Olympics reminded me of Aries and big thunderstorms reminded me of some kind of brooding Scorpio. My Gemini showed up at school. I was referencing the signs as a way to understand what my family never taught me – the complexities of human impulse.


I studied alone for about seven years. Then, I came across Debra Silverman’s Astrology school, Applied Astrology. At first glance, it seemed too good to be true. She spoke the language in a simple, practical way that I could understand. I was only 21, but her approach was accessible for me. At first I was a bit reluctant, and didn’t believe that I could study with her to get to be an Astrologer. . . I couldn’t have been more wrong!


I enrolled in Debra’s Astrology school, Applied Astrology, where I learned about the four elements, my own birth chart, and how to turn on the observer. I could look over at the difficult karma of my childhood with compassion and kindness.


We were all learning this together. I clicked so well with the group of people in the school! The modules were perfectly crafted, and encouraged us to reflect and collaborate with the other classmates. I loved the group energy.


I know now that my dad is looking down, smiling that I’m finding my way. I know you can find your direction too.


Astrology helped me fall in love with my fate. I am forever grateful to Debra’s program.


If you have a calling to the stars, that’s your karma, your fate. Don’t hesitate to walk (or run!) towards these classes.
Take the dive today, your name is written in the stars.
