With an essentially Jungian psychological perspective, she focused on using the chart to uncover meaning and purpose in the challenges of daily life.
She also enjoyed researching astrological heredity, by studying the charts of whole families. Her affinity for astrology stemed from a multilayered understanding of man's cosmic nature. She loved discovering the confluence of the spiritual and scientific.

While doing horoscope gifts for her daughter's graduating class, she realized how crucial it was not to plant seeds of self-doubt in young minds, with 'deterministic' statements about their personality. She was inspired to go through and edit the Sirius "Cosmo Natal" software, and substitute positive, growth-oriented language wherever possible.
