My mother-in-law, Dian Bustillo, first learned astrology as a kindergarten teacher, as a way to understand and to connect better with each student. She later became an astrologer and astrology teacher. She was my first astrology teacher, and as soon as she learned I had an interest she started giving me freebies: My first ephemeris; a subscription to The Mountain Astrologer magazine; a hand-made personal planner with the astrological aspects for each day.
Dian has a Leo moon and an outrageously generous nature. For my birthday this year I asked her to knit me a long, chunky scarf. She used my favorite color and somehow figured out how to knit a big “A” into the design. I didn’t know that at 42 it would be so exciting to get clothing with my own initial, but as an astrologer Dian has an inside track into understanding my Aries rising.
Her birthday is Friday, and in honor of her and in the spirit of Valentine’s Day tomorrow, I’m sharing my Parenting with Astrology webinar free through February 15th with the code LOVE. From what I can tell, grandparenting comes naturally. But as a parent, it’s helped me to have some tools. :)
I hope it’ll help you understand and connect better with the ones you love, too.
