AstroElemental Signatures: The Backstory

The elements of nature ground and heal us. 

All the principles of spirit are reflected in nature. 

To work with the elements is to be constantly reminded of our source.

How AstroElemental Signatures came to be.

As a medical scientist I was asked to photograph, through my microscope, 12 minerals said to be associated with the 12 signs of the zodiac. I was not “into” astrology, I was really a skeptic but agreed to photograph the minerals since I could use those same images to teach children about how our body and cells worked.  At the time I was giving slide shows to children with cancer, images through the microscope of cells and molecules.They might find these images and soothing.  Plus these would expand my Molecules of Life series.

When I was finished photographing the 12 mineral salts, I was surprised to see that there appeared to be four distinct shapes: square, round, wavy, and hexagons.  Was there a category of 4 in astrology?  As a microscopist I was trained to look for patterns or themes in the microscopic universe so couldn’t help but be intrigued by this pattern of 4 shapes.

The photographs used to develop astromolecular elemental signatures are photomicrographs of the mineral salts.  I quickly translated the micrographs into simple geometric symbols, and began reading people’s birthdata to figure out relationships – were they good for me, would our attractions and differences be worthwhile pursuing.  And who was I elementally, what were my weaknesses and challenges – could I find soulutions to remedy imbalances and places out of alignment.  And so a new system, based on very old occult systems and the sacred geometry of our molecules was born – when the scientist in me clashed with the mysterious.
