I have been an astrologer for over 45 years. Throughout those years, I also served as a as an Episcopal priest and lawyer.
I first practiced full-time astrology in New York City and furthered my study in London, England from 1974-1984, receiving Teacher level from the American Federation of Astrologers in 1978, the Diploma of the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London; 1979, and the Astrologisch-Psychologisch API Diploma of the Huber School in Zurich;1981.
I have taught astrology classes in London, Zurich, Los Angeles, Miami, New Haven, Copenhagen, and co-led Huber Perspective training retreats in Switzerland, Brazil, California, New Mexico and Florida. My book MERCURY: Anatomy of a Planet (Aquarian Press/Thorsons, 1983) was published in English, Italian and Dutch. *(book covers to the right)
When I returned to the United States to attend the University of Florida Law School (J.D., 1986) and later Yale Divinity School (M.Div,1992), full-time astrology was set aside, but not entirely.
As a Miami prosecutor, and later as a priest in Los Angeles, there was always time to do an occasional horoscope or lecture. In fact, three work colleagues (one lawyer, one priest and one psychologist) found psychological astrology so compelling that they insisted on being taught the basics. To this day, serious astrology has become part of their professional tools.
In 2007, I purchased the historic San Geronimo Lodge in Taos, New Mexico and began hosting interfaith spiritual retreats alongside serving at St. James Episcopal Church. Ten years later, I sold the San Geronimo and have since then moved to my home in Dade City, Florida. Now fully retired from the law, the priesthood, and bed and breakfast ownership, time is of the essence. I can and must re-connect with the passion of my lifetime.
