A Conversation With Eco-Astrologer Stephanie Austin
“I don’t make predictions because I don’t want to lose my non-prophet status.” — Swami Beyondananda
Before I met my wife Trudy, I was a skeptic. Anytime anyone asked, “What’s your sign?” I would reply, “Slippery when wet.” Ha-ha- ha.
However, I couldn’t discount Trudy’s insights about my own personality based on this ancient tool. Then there was the time we were watching our first World Series together, and the announcer was Joe Morgan. At one point, she asked, “Is he a Virgo?”
Looked it up in my trusty Baseball Encyclopedia and sure enough he was. So I devised a test. I chose three of my family members whom she had met, but didn’t know their birthdates. For each, I gave three possible birthdates, one of them correct. In all three cases, she picked the correct birthdates, based on what she knew about their personalities.
Now it’s 30 years later, and over time I have cultivated great respect for how heavenly bodies might be impacting our earthly lives. And so as one year ends and another begins, I decided to consult my favorite wise woman astrologer, Stephanie Austin, not to hear any “predictions” but to put our times into cosmic context.
Stephanie Austin M.A. is an astrological counselor, teacher, and writer, specializing in life purpose, career, and relationship since 1986. Her background includes a Master’s degree in Consciousness Studies, a Bachelor’s in Psychology, and extensive explorations in holistic health, eco-psychology, meditation, and inner work. An adjunct professor at John F. Kennedy University for 15 years, Stephanie has written for the Mountain Astrologer magazine since 1990. She is the also the author of two e-books, EcoAstrology: Finding Our Way Home and Life After Twinkies: A Holistic Guide to Dietary Change.

EcoAstrology combines myth and mysticism with transpersonal psychology and the new physics. It provides an owners manual and roadmap for identifying and staying on your path. It outlines potentials, not predictions. It details what you came to learn, and what you came to share. It validates what you already know in your heart and soul.
If you’re ready for a true “meta-view” of where we’ve been and where we might be headed, one that combines ancient wisdom, modern science and an “evolved” view of evolution, join us for this enlightening and entertaining conversation. I predict you will gain helpful insight into these times of challenge and opportunity.
