About me

On the beach in Oregon one Summer

I am a Seattle-based astrologer, hypnotherapist and blogger. I use NLP, myth, ritual, and tarot in my coaching and I blog about blogging, art, 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 was fun for me and I posted daily for a log time. You’ll see several ways to navigate the site, there are choices in the menu bar across the top, more choices in “pages” in the sidebar, including a link to Scott’s blog, the Duncan Domain, and some other sites I frequent, you’ll also notice many other links further down the sidebar in “links,” these are websites I use myself and find that I am always recommending to others.

So, what do I do when I am not here? I have been married to Scott Duncan for over 30 years and we’ve lived in Seattle for over 20 years. We have 2 dogs, 1 cat, and an angora rabbit. We travel the West coast whenever we can, and I make textile projects so I weave, knit, crochet, spin yarn, and make the jewelry components and other stuff that goes into the pieces.

I also offer private coaching sessions by phone, Skype or in my studio. 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.
