I was born April 13, 1957, in San José, Costa Rica, at 1:10 PM CST (19:10 GMT). [The picture is from Dec.'98].
Except for 3 years I spent studying in the U.S. and 2 years in Mexico, I live and have always lived in Costa Rica. I enjoy being alone with my bouvier of Flandres, away from the inner storms and disolution of my own identity that I experience when I am in love. My anima tends to swallow me.
I have a B.A. in Geography and Anthropology from the University of California, and have taken many advanced courses in Psychology, but have been practicing astrology as my sole professional activity all my life. Inspired first by Max Heindel, and later by Dane Rudhyar when I was 17, I left him behind and rejected his philosophy when I was 20, and found Marc Edmund Jones, who gave me the grounding I needed, and whom I consider my teacher.
My practice is heavily psychological, and being in session with a client, in total concentration in his or her intimate self, is what I love most in life.
I have always been interested in the occult, even before I found astrology in my teens. But I came in contact with Rudolf Steiner's Anthroposophy when I was 20, and through him and also through the influence of Krishnamurti, regained in freedom what the other tendencies of occultism had taken from me: my personal, untouchable, unconditional and incorruptible relationship with Christ.
I like to keep Anthroposophy and Astrology completely separate, because the way I see it, Astrology is technical and psychological, only a tool, not life. The living mystery I see not in Astrology, but in the magic of the alchemical relationship I establish with the soul of the people I get close to.
In December 1998 I came to Zane Stein's forum "Chiron and Friends", which was my first real contact with an astrological community. It was also my first really serious attempt to deal with Chiron and my first acquaintance with the astrological centaurs.
I am an expert in the calculation of astronomical ephemerides and everything having to do with positional astronomy, through which I hear a pulse and a music that compares only to the music I hear when delving into a person's biography, dead or alive, and although I derive an immense pleasure in doing all those astronomical calculations and writing and perfecting my own astrological software, my real passion is going deeply into other people's innermost feelings.
