About Joan

Photo by Jonathan Timmes

I started “playing” with astrology when I was in grammar school. I always had a fixation with the planets – Pluto being my favorite (surprise I am Scorpio Sun!) –and yes, Pluto is still a planet to me! I put my astrology “toys” away when I grew up and went into the “real world” – sadly convinced that it was time to do more important things. The universe woke me up in my mid-thirties and I began an intensive study of Western astrology. Happily, I was directed to Adam Gainsburg and found my home in his “Soulsign.” Modern Man takes for granted the Sun and how its energy propels and sustains life. Moon energy controls the tides yet we ignore the other more personal influences it has on our bodies and lives. We have lost the art of appreciating and reading the stars as messengers from the god and goddess. Humanity has disconnected from its source and consequently suffers emotionally, spiritually and physically. Each person is born with a map – a soul map – that is his or her astrological chart. It is a map through the maze of life that shows the karma we need to balance and our soul’s desire for a life that leads to enhanced soul growth. I simply read the map – illustrating where you have been and where you are going to make your journey through life less bumpy.
