Stargazing in Astrology & Astronomy


When we Google STARGAZER, the definition given is Astronomer or Astrologer. It is an odd thing to couple as Astronomers are well-versed scientists with a vast understanding of all celestial objects, space, and the physical universe. In comparison, Astrology has a limitation of its perspective. A study where we on earth are the center of the universe should not work by all accounts. 

I was born in July, under the Astrological sign of Cancer. By nature, I am a Selenophile, attracted by the moon, named after the Greek mythology’s Moon Goddess, Selene. It does not have to be a beautiful full moon to amaze me, but those are my favorites.

The vast universe we live in fascinates me. In my teens, I loved reading my horoscope. As I got a little older and explored the possibilities and nuances of a personalized birth chart, my interest, and love for all things celestial and world expanded.

By nature, I am a skeptic; however, as I researched the meaning of planetary placements in my chart and those of people I knew well, I was astounded. Particularly when I understood predictive transits and how the current placements of planets, asteroids, and luminaries affect the natal place in our own individual way. A great example that has become quite commonplace in today’s vernacular is Mercury retrograde.

For years Mundane Astrologers, those who study everything relating to world affairs, have been warning us about 2020 about a “something” that would affect the entire world and make significant changes. There is no need to go into COVID19 stories, about how right that was. Their limitation was that they saw it affecting us globally, but could not say exactly what “it” would be. I follow many gifted Mundane Astrologers, but I find the journey of introspection and starting with oneself the one that appeals to me.

Traditionally there are different types of astrology. I call the one I practice Personal, but the common term is Humanistic Astrology. A way to explore who we are and what hidden talents and opportunities are available to use. If we use them correctly, in my book Defined by Others, the main characters Connie and Anne misrepresent and misuse psychic abilities, which are often seen as Predictive Astrology. 

Some charts look far different from the Placidus system that I use. It is named after the 17th-century astrologer Placidus de Tito and is in western Astrology the most popular. It divides a circle 360 degrees into 12 signs, each given 30 degrees, and 12 houses, which vary in size depending on the time, place, and date of the chart plotted. 

The Vedic system is known as Jyotish, Indian, or Hindu Astrology, looks fascinating, but my curiosity does not extend to learning how to use it.

Electional Astrology is part of predictive Astrology and is used to plan important events or moments, a way used to try to control the future. Horary is what most Astrologers that charge a hefty fee sell as they answer specific questions. I have a good friend who consulted a Vocational Astrologer to choose her career. It worked; she took her love of music into a teaching path she had never expected. Esoteric, for Spiritual quests and Karmic for past lives.

As individuals, I feel that we are the best experts on who we are—charts with lengthy reports to be read and understood by the most important person, you.

As part of my Rafflecopter giveaway, there are five possible winners for Birth and solar charts, each accompanied by full reports that range from 50 to 60 pages each, so before you leave this blog, be sure to enter my giveaway. Good luck, and may the beauty that surrounds us, always uplift you.


Death of a Sculptor in Hue, Shape and Color 
by M.C.V. Egan 
Genre: Suburban Women's Fiction 


Color coded love stories and revealing female anatomies lead to the murder of world renowned sculptor, Bruce Jones.

In life, the artist loved women, almost as much as women loved him. Adored for his art and colorful personality, Bruce is mourned by the world at large. The tale is launched with the multifaceted perspectives of four ex-wives, the current wife, and his new love interest and their children.

Mary , Bruce’s wealthy first love, is always in perfect pink; the color of love. Mother of Clair the famous actress and Aaron the corporate lawyer.

Leslie The Second’s color is yellow for her sunny nature as much as for her fears and insecurities. Her only son Bobby is vulnerable and lost. Mourning his father’s death, he finds himself.

Petra The Third, is outstanding in orange, representing not only her native Holland but also her love of the fruit. Cherished her freedom and had no children of her own.

Toni The Fourth is a vibrant passionate Italian red and part of the eventual glue that creates and solidifies this dysfunctional Jones family. Her teenage daughters Tina and Isa are as different as night and day.

Brooke The Fifth a gold-digger. Green, her color, reflects the color of money and envy. Her young son’s Kyle and Caleb are too young to understand why their world has been turned upside-down.

Mara, as blue as the ocean was the last woman to steal Bruce’s heart. Mother to newborn Baby Peter is the unexpected gift and surprise.

Bruce Jones’ eight children speak out, too. They are as distinctive as the women he loved, their mothers.

Loose ends are tied up by the insights of Sylvia, Aaron’s wife and a trusted keeper of secrets; Scott, the private investigator and family friend; Nona, the quintessential grandmother everyone loves but to whom few are truly related; and Detective Jim Miller who will not rest until he discovers Bruce Jones’ murderer.

    1. YES! I learned a lot. The second watch especially, the 5 or 6 psychics individually told the same story and described the same owner, which was uncanny and matched one I did not expect.
