Biography

American astrologer whose interest in astrology and metaphysics began in 1965 with teacher Isabel Hickey, author of "Astrology: A Cosmic Science," at Boston School of Astrology. In Boston, Amy was active in Star Rovers Astrological Association, the National Council for Geocosmic Research and North Star Astrological Assn. In the 1970's she worked for an astrological publisher editing astrology texts, including the "Planets In..." series. She was a Customer Relations consultant for Astral Research for many years and wrote articles for astrology and other publications.

She began to write for Horoscope Magazine, Dell Purse Books and New Age Retailer, in addition to book projects. In 1978, Amy founded the Cape Ann School of Astrology to sponsor programs and workshops on astrology, and to promote the esoteric lectures of Dr. Oskar Adler, "The Testament of Astrology." In 2000, she began the process of publishing this material, along with a biography on Dr. Adler.

From 1988 to 1990, Amy hosted a weekly hour-long radio show called "Good Heavens!" which evolved into a cable TV series, broadcast by North Shore cable stations in Massachusetts. For many years she wrote a "Good Heavens!" monthly Transit Report, outlining current astrological influences with the philosophy of promoting the positive, joyful use of astrology for spiritual enlightenment. She became a popular guest on cable shows, including a memorable appearance on the Joe Franklin Show for her work as a past life therapist. Her guest lectures included those at various astrological associations and she offers informal Online astrology classes on AOL.

Amy’s academic training includes a BA in Education and Psychology from Curry College and an M. Ed. Degree in Guidance and Counseling Psychology from Boston College; training at Harvard Medical School's Mind/Body Institute and New England Society for Clinical Hypnosis. She feels that her practice of T'ai Chi deepens her awareness of healing energies. Exploring the Akashic Records and past life therapy using the Awareness Techniques of William Swygard, she has authored a book describing cases of individuals who recalled past lives as the opposite sex -- a phenomenon she calls the "Dual-Gender Soul."
