American pro astrologer, mythologist and educator, sometime artist. Kelley is a contributing author to "Astrology for Women," Llewellyn, 1997, and author of the booklet, "Black Moon Lilith" for the ACS "All About Astrology" series, 2000. She began studying astrology in 1967 through a correspondence course with the Rosicrucian Fellowship. The innovative Roots of Astrology Experiential Conference in 1988 which she founded with Sig Lonegren and Barbara Schermer was held for a consecutive six years.
Kelley has lectured at UAC (1989, 1992, 2002) and other conferences (ISAR, AA of Great Britain, in Canada, other local groups). An astrological writer, she wrote for Welcome to Planet Earth for many years, currently for The International Astrologer, and has had articles published in The Mountain Astrologer and in journals in Australia, India and Great Britain.
Kelley was the first of three daughters born to educators (Dad a Sag, Mom a Scorpio). She went to Middlebury College when she was 16, graduating in 1970 in Drama. She started traveling and held odd jobs for some years. Woodstock and seeing the Beatles twice were memorable pages in her youth.
In 1973, Kelley was initiated into her spiritual path, which she discovered in Hawaii. In 1980 she began work in non-traditional higher education administration, first at Goddard College and then at Vermont College of Norwich University. In 1982 she began graduate work and received her MA in Depth Psychology/Creative Communications in 1986. She served as adjunct faculty for adult students at Vermont College and several other colleges in the Vermont area. In 1996 she moved to the Virgin Islands and stopped college teaching and in 1999 she began PhD studies in humanities, specializing in cosmology and myth.
Kelley married in 1975 and had a daughter on 2 March 1976. Their son was born on 4 December 1980 and died on 3-4 December 1983 on a total eclipse on his birthday. That was a major turning point that ended the marriage. Her mother died in 1990 and her father in 1999.
Kelley had a car accident in June 1970, which compacted two vertebrae. She contracted hepatitis in India in 1971. As an astrologer, she foresees no interest in retirement from her vital field of consultations and study. Se lives in St. John's on the Virgin Islands.
