American professional writer, astrologer, and translator of French texts into English. Her translation of The Selected Letters of Antonin Artaud was a finalist for the National Book Award. She began her study of astrology in 1968, first with Zoltan Mason and later with Richard Idemon. She is co-author and general editor of The Larousse Encyclopedia of Astrology which she translated, revised, and expanded with the aid of Allan Edmands, Charles Jayne, Charles Harvey, and Rob Hand.

She is the author of The Daisy Sutra: Conversations with my Dog, a book about animal communication which she self-published in 2001 under her Buddha Rock Press imprint. Her book The Awakener: A Memoir of Kerouac and the Fifties was published by City Lights in 2009. She is currently at work on Translation of Light, a book about her scientist father, the late Warren Weaver, and their extraordinary dialogue about astrology.
