It is our intention is to share information, practices, techniques, and resources in support of living more balanced, harmonious, and fulfilling lives.
Our serious study of astrology began in 1982. We joined the San Diego Astrological Society, read books, attended lectures and workshops; interpreted charts for all our friends, family, and coworkers; finally opening our professional practice in 1985. Lunar astrology became our specialty soon after moving to New York in 1990. In 1998, we left the security of our “day jobs” to focus our attention on living a more creative lifestyle, encouraging others to enjoy the value of natural timing and symbolic art. When we began writing forecasts for the Internet in 2000, we followed our stars to the sunny Hawaiian island of Oahu, which we feel blessed to call home.
David is a social, albeit quiet guy, a bit of a techie who lives in his own world. He enjoys cooking, taking pictures, and endearing himself to all kinds of domestic animals, especially our two cats, Cayce & Cookie. He balances the books, maintains the records, and knows computers. A gifted songwriter and musician (he plays guitar and didge), David has a healing touch and an open heart.
Sandra is a sensitive being, a bit of a dreamer who loves circles and sacred spaces. She enjoys reading, writing, design, and social media. She maintains the website, writes the updates, and edits the photos. An insightful confidant and communicator, Sandra has a responsive and inspiring nature.
Professional affiliations include:

In concert with our astrological studies, the study of music, color psychology, dream interpretation, NLP, numerology and sacred geometry formed our understanding of both the real and symbolic properties of sound, color and form. A peripheral study of the tarot with the Brotherhood Of The Adytum added a wealth of astrological correspondences. As did Gerd Ziegler’s Tarot:Mirror of the Soul , The Wheel of Destiny by Patricia McLaine and The Angels Within Us by John Randolph Price.
Aside from The Coffee Table Book of Astrology which we’d both read in the 70’s, our first exposure to real astrology was made via a dear Capricorn friend, Bill Andrews, who gave us A.T. Mann’s beautiful and thorough book, The Round Art and introduced us to Jan Kennedy, a noted astrologer, author, and healer.
The works of Dane Rudhyar (one of the preeminent figures of the 20th century) on the lunation cycle, along with Marc Edmund Jones‘ on the Sabian Symbols, added more symbolic layers to explore. The Book of Houses by Robert Cole has also had a lasting impact. Terry Warneke offered us another way to apply the study of celestial cycles by sharing the ideas of Marc Robertson.
Our eternal gratitude goes to Robert ‘Buz’ Myers, teacher, mentor and friend, who dedicated himself to the masterful application of the eight-phase cycle. His skill as a communicator, his quarterly publication Cycles for Daily Living with companion audio tapes and his book Getting “On-Time” With Your Life brought us fully into our lunar specialty.
We owe special thanks to our sisters, Yaxki Welker and the late Adina Walker for sharing their shamanistic awareness and indigenous teachings; to the island of Kaua’i for introducing us to the Aloha Spirit; to our many (and increasingly numerous) astrological teachers and colleagues who add enlightenment and insight with each contact; to all the members of the “On Time” community who provided a loving environment for our growth; and finally, to our parents, siblings, daughters and grandchildren, all our ohana (family), and to the Divine Presence, who inspires our fifth-house Suns to shine.
