About me

Scott took this pic of Robert & me on the beach in Oregon last Summer

I am an Astrologer, hypnotherapist and blogger living in Seattle. I use NLP, myth, ritual, and tarot in my coaching and I blog about blogging, crafts, life and my dogs. I teach the History of Western Astrology courses at Kepler College and I co-teach the Counseling series with Karen McCauley, MA. See the Kepler Course Catalog here.

This blog is the continuation of a newsletter series I started in 1999 and continued through 2008. The switch to WordPress encouraged shorter posts reflecting a variety of topics rather than long monthly subject-focused and multi-columned newsletters. This change has been fun for me and I generally post daily. My suggestion is to navigate this site via the tag cloud or the search box in the sidebar. I hope you enjoy my blog and be sure to scroll down the sidebar and check out my links.

So, what do I do when I am not blogging? I have been married to Scott Duncan for 30+ years and we’ve lived in Seattle for over 20 years. You can read Scott’s blog, the Duncan Domain, here. We have 2 dogs, 1 cat, and an angora rabbit. We camp whenever we can, and when indoors, I weave, knit, crochet, spin yarn, make jewelry and other stuff. Click the “contact us” tab to see all the other sites I frequent.

I offer private coaching sessions in my studio or by phone. To make an appointment, email me or see my “contact us” page for all the other ways you can contact me. I like to combine astrology, myth, tarot, hypnosis and NLP techniques because I find that each can be useful in given situations. However, if you have issues with or concerns about any of these modalities, I can adjust my coaching to your needs and comfort.
