A Lifetime Under The Stars

Alexis Masters Late 2017As many of you know, I’ve been involved with astrology for most of my adult life. Since 1972, actually, when I was a young mother, avid bookworm, and seeker for meaning in a life that, aside from my babies, was not providing much in the way of soul sustenance. I devoured everything the great philosopher sage Dane Rudhyar wrote, then ventured into more textbook style learning from more contemporary astrologers. An old-time astrologer in Stockton, California whose name I lost years ago was the first—and last—to give me a full reading. The most memorable thing she had to say was that, according to  my chart, I would not find my path to success until very late in my life. So, needless to say, as the headstrong Aries Rising/Taurus Sun I am, I struggled against that idea for years, and now, here I am, at age 68, realizing how right she was!

My chart is below, using the Porphyry house calculation. Rudhyar always preferred Campanus, but cast my chart in Placidus because that was what I was used to. Just lately, though, I’ve found more meaning using this chart, with Pluto in my fourth instead of my fifth. It seems to be a better fit with my experience.
