Muise, Roxana(religion, spiritualism, and occult)
Roxana Muise, a contemporary second-generation astrologer, was born on October 1, 1935, in Chicago, Illinois. She graduated from St. Catherine’s Academy in Lomita, California, and was ordained on February 14, 1974, in the Abūndant Life Church of Jesus Christ, a spiritualist, metaphysical church based in San Bernardino, California. She graduated summa cum laude from California State University at Dominguez Hills in 1981 with a degree in health science.
Muise began astrological studies in 1968 with her mother, Patricia Crossley, and graduated from the Scorpio School of Astrology in 1970. Her first teachers were Zipporah Dobyns, Gina Ceaglio, Dane Rudhyar, Virginia Wilson Fabre, Constance G. Mayer, Robert Jansky, Sabrinah Millstein, Al H. Morrison, James Eshelman, Lois Rodden, Edwin Steinbrecher, Buz Meyers, Tony Joseph, Charles Emerson, Robert Hand, Diana Stone, Arlene Kramer, and Manly Palmer Hall.
Muise cofounded the South Western Astrology Conference (SWAC) and served as its director from 1974 to 1985. She is a past president of the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR) and served on its board for 19 years. She was a founding member of the board of directors of the United Astrology Conference. She keeps the archives for more than 10,000 named asteroids for the Asteroid Special Interest Group (AST-SIG) of the National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR) and is the a founding member of the board of directors of Kepler College of Astrological Arts and Sciences in Seattle, Washington.
Muise is the author of A-Year-at-a-Glance: The 45 Degree Graphic Ephemeris, which presents her method of creating an overlay of one’s natal planets on a yearly graph that shows all hard transiting aspects for an entire year and provides a worksheet that instantly shows dynamic aspects between charts. She is also the author of The Fourth Sign, based on research of historical references that give the cat, instead of the crab, as a symbol for the sign Cancer. Muise is author of a learning CD, The Shadow Ephemeris, which portrays the entire retrograde subcycle. This begins when a planet first passes the degree at which it will turn direct, and ends when a planet passes the degree where it turned retrograde. The CD includes articles, instruction, examples, and ephemeredes of more than a century of planetary stations and shadow points.
Muise lives with her husband, Ralph, in Lacey, Washington. She is an international lecturer, teaches astrology and metaphysics, and has a private counseling practice. Her Monthly Astrology Report, which includes a transit forecast and a symbolism report, is sent by email subscription.
