HOW MY LOVE OF ASTROLOGY BEGAN
I’ve always been interested in astrology, at least as long as I can remember. I picked up some of it from my mother who, although she sent me to Catholic school, had my astrological chart done and always talked to me about what was happening with the stars. Also, my grandfather always read us our “horrible-scopes” as he called them, the horoscopes in the infamous syndicated column of Jeane Dixon, one of the best known American astrologers. He’d read each of our signs from the newspaper after our weekly Sunday breakfast. It became a ritual that I looked forward to.
I was hooked. I saved my allowance so I could buy my own astrology books and an ephemeris. I knew right then it was something I wanted to explore and use in my daily life. I couldn’t get enough. I was really lucky to find good mentors when I was a teenager, and took classes to learn about astrology, numerology and psychometry. I have been fortunate to study with some of the greatest astrologers as an adult, who have taken everything I had previously learned to a whole other level.
I am a double Scorpio, which explains my early and continued fascination with astrology and metaphysics, and also why I had to investigate it. I have a Gemini Moon, which says everything about my curiosity about astrology, why I love talking about it so much, and why the first thing I want to know when I meet someone new is when their birthday is!
I am the proud mother of two wonderful children: Alexandra, a Taurus, and stepmother to Dorina, a Capricorn. My husband and life partner, Ferenc, is a Virgo and if you know anything about how Scorpios and Virgos do as a couple, you’ll know that we bring out the best in each other! We waited our whole lives to meet each other and have been glued at the hip ever since. I eat, sleep, and breathe astrology and my family probably gets tired of hearing about it from time to time. However, when they need it to sort something out in their own lives, who do they come running to? You guessed it! Mama Ricci, as I’m fondly referred to.
