American astrologer and motel owner. As a young woman she was a journalism major in college and worked at Boeing Aircraft during WW II. She returned to college at 45 to earn her teaching credentials and taught elementary school in Bakersfield, CA from 1962-1984. Her one marriage blessed the bubbly redhead with five children.

In 1972 she became caught up with astrology and devoured all that she could find to read and study. In the mid '70s she opened up one of the first metaphysical bookstores in Bakersfield, CA. After being widowed in 1983, she retired from teaching and moved to Arroyo Grande, CA, becoming a professional full-time astrologer. Her work included forming a local support group for astrology and co-writing and self-publishing four books.

With a medical history that included an ovarian abscess at the age of eight and kidney stones with her first pregnancy, she had many surgeries. Glaucoma was suspected 11/11/1983 at age 60; confirmed 11/26/1983.

Shaw died in October 1996, Arroyo Grande, CA.
