Home / AstroElemental Signatures: The Backstory

If you have been intrigued by the messages in water according to Masuro Emoto’s work, discover a more personal expression of microscopic photography of mineral salts associated with your birthday.

The framework for a reading depends on the 4 Elements of the Zodiac as revealed by your birth chart. Each sign of the zodiac is associated with one of the 4 elements – earth, air, fire, and water. 

What’s your element?

How AstroElemental Code came to be

As a medical scientist I was asked to photograph, through my microscope, 12 minerals (cell salts) 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 their body and cells worked.  At the time I was giving slide shows to children with cancer, images through the microscope of cells and molecules. I thought that they might find these images interesting and soothing.  Plus these would expand my Molecules of Life series.

When I was finished photographing the 12 mineral salts (in their pure form not as homeopathic remedies), 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 and 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  code or signatures are photomicrographs of the cell salts.  I am now using this new molecular code to reveal people’s elemental strengths and challenges to help them uncover the work and destiny of their soul. I quickly translated the micrographs into simple geometric symbols, and began reading people’s birthdata to figure out relationships and who was I elementally, what were my weaknesses and challenges – could I find soulutions to remedy imbalances and enhance the strengths. And then a year ago after working with this material for decades I began offering guidance readings with this new mystical system, based on very old occult systems and the sacred geometry of our molecules .When the scientist in me clashed with the mysterious mystic.  

Here are examples of 4 of the 12 mineral salts of the Zodiac.

EARTH -Capricorn, calcium phosphate


WATER – Cancer, calcium fluoride


AIR element – Libra,Sodium phosphate


FIRE- Sagittarius-Silica
