Daniel is an astrological intuitive. He has been a student of Astrology and metaphysics since the conjunction of Uranus and Pluto in Virgo (the sign on Daniel’s ascendant) in the late 1960’s. In spite of Timothy Leary’s comments to the contrary, Daniel remembers the ’60’s well. Like many other members of his generation, his direct spiritual experiences through different modalities initiated in him the process of liberation from the conditionings of his childhood as prescribed by parents, public school teachers, and religious teaching. He came to realize that the true nature of reality was much different than what he had been taught in school. In addition to Astrology, his studies included practice with the I Ching and Tarot. Also in those years, reading the writings of Paramahansa Yogananda, forever changed Daniel’s understanding and perception of spirituality. He was increasingly attracted to teachers who worked with intuitive development and self-actualization through conscious intention.
Throughout the 1980’s, Daniel was actively committed to the virtual New Age communities of cyberspace. There he met and interacted with authors, tarot readers, Native American elders, intuitives, UFOlogists, Wiccans, lucid dreamers, Seth readers, and of course, other astrologers. He worked closely in real time with a local focus group studying the work of Jane Roberts, author of The Seth Material where he began to constellate practical methodologies surrounding man’s inherent ability to self-actualize and create physical reality.
In 2010, Daniel encountered the work of Jeffrey Wolf Green, realizer of the paradigm of Evolutionary Astrology. Jeffrey’s work became a “magical moving sidewalk” for Daniel. He instinctively immersed himself in the work, and it led him to understand and find his dharma. The core of Daniel’s work stems from the teachings of Jeffrey Wolf Green, and as elaborated by other evolutionary astrologers including Kim Marie, Mark Jones, Maurice Fernandez, Patricia Walsh. He has also discovered profound insight outside this core group in the work of Noel Tyl, Lynn Bell, Margaret Gray, Jeff Jawer, and Frank Clifford, Chris Brennan.
Daniel is an award winning photographer, whose work has been exhibited locally, privately, and online. With his partner Susan Waller, he works with the consciousness of plants and stones using essential oils, making herbal medicine, and mining and distributing locally sourced Selenite.
