I’m a life-long student of Astrology, passionate about learning, growing, and understanding what it’s all about. As a child, I recall looking up in awe at the night sky and marveling at how the Milky Way resembles our human DNA.
Experience is the best teacher and I’ve been fortunate to run a thriving practice for many years now. What gives me deep satisfaction in my work is assisting clients to see themselves. We all recognize our own charts and simply need to be reminded of who we are – and that we came here to experience everything that is happening to us.
I hold a Level III Professional Diploma from the Rod Suskin School of Astrology and am a highest honors graduate of Noel Tyl’s rigorous Master’s Degree Certification Program for Professional Astrologers. I’m also a Certified Astrological Professional (CAP) by the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR) and a trainer for their Consulting Skills program (Please email me if you are interested in taking this incredible training and wish to know more). My work embraces a mix of traditional and modern techniques, always situating my clients first.
I also hold a Bachelor of Arts Honors (first class) and a Higher Diploma in Education (awarded with distinction) from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. After working as a senior editor for Oxford University Press, I married and relocated to the United States. I was consulting editor on The Whirling Winds: Suffering and Transcendence in the Movement of Energy by Suzan Donleavy (published by the American Federation of Astrologers, 2013).
I’m a member of ISAR, AFAN (Association for Astrological Networking – merging with OPA in 2023) and A.S.P (Astrological Society of Princeton, NJ) and lecture at the annual Empowered Astrology Conference and for ISAR’s STARCLUB. I write for Midheaven Magazine, teach online with Stormie Grace and have been hosted by the Washington State Astrologers Association. My YouTube channel is ‘catherine goshen‘ where I share Astrological insights. An extremely rewarding part of my work between 2021 and 2023 has been being a mentor for AFAN’s enriching Mentoring Program.
My greatest love is teaching, and I offer a two-year program called Cornerstone. (My next new intake of students begins in January 2024; course starts in September 2024.)
Growing up in a home where Iyengar yoga was studied and taught by both my grandmother and mother, I was fortunate to be given a strong spiritual foundation in life. Now, as a wife and mother of two, I deeply appreciate the joys and challenges that young people and parents face daily in this world.
There is a continued search for meaning in my life, and a wish to understand why we are here. I find Astrology to be a powerful means to deepen this exploration.
Studying charts, and working with clients and students, is a daily reminder of the enormous scale and intricate design of Nature — the Greatness of it All.
