About Penny

Some Real Personal Facts

I was born on August 11th, 1992. My sun is in Leo in the 12th house, conjunct Chiron.

I grew up in Plano, Texas where I studied music, sports, and foreign language.

I moved out at age 17 through a semi-arranged marriage. I was always escaping various forms of abuse.
My husband was in the military and we moved around a lot. I have lived in Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, and New York as well as Texas.

I left my husband at age 21, shortly after my daughter was born.
My husband had Saturn in the 7th house, which is an indicator of divorce, and I experienced that first hand even before trusting or believing in the legitimacy of astrology.

I continued to pursue my education and career in astrology, but have also had to pick up other jobs as I go.
I have worked in retail as well as the medical field, fitness, and entertainment.

I have mostly remained single after my divorce, refusing to focus on relationships because I cared so much more about my career, but I have dated a LOT of different people.
I have finally settled down with a Libra, but we will see how long that lasts. :P I do really love him though.

While I enjoy being in a relationship, I know that it is still very important to balance career, family, and life goals along with love. I have suffered love that was suffocating and brought limitations that were imposed upon me. This makes me more appreciative of my freedom to experience life and pursue hobbies.

Hobbies

Aside from astrology, psychology, and all things metaphysical (which Penny spends a good deal of time studying), Penny is head over heels in love with her life and experience as a martial artist. She has trained in taekwondo, hapkido, judo, jiu-jitsu, kajukenbo, and boxing.

She often feels like it is difficult to merge her hobbies of astrology and martial arts, as most people who are interested in one are not interested in the other.

Penny also likes dancing, crocheting, and hiding out at home under a blanket (probably one that she crocheted herself).

In her adolescence, she played lots of video games and still enjoys playing tabletop games with friends.

What Makes Penny an Authority on Astrology

Umm, hello.... It's my Venus in Virgo! Duuhh!!
I'm only kidding...
I am so intuitive and so analytical, which is a bit of a rare combination.
Most of this is because of my Virgo and 12th house placements.

Nonetheless, I believe that my personal life helped me, and perhaps even forced me to understand people on a deeper level.

I was very isolated as a child and as an adolescent. I was left on the outside looking in, and this allowed me to observe people without having any emotional investment in what was happening. I was an outcast no matter how I spun it; I knew that, and at that time I was ok with it.

It wasn't until my adult life that I decided that I wanted to make friends. Granted, I did not know how... So I read books!
I also Googled, "How to make friends".

I wanted astrology to show me the key to understanding people and having healthy relationships, and eventually it did.
I managed to become a very social and even somewhat charismatic person.

Since then, I have had many interpersonal relationships and learned a lot about people.

I still am a little bit robotic and at times unintentionally insensitive, but that is part of my own personality (astrology) and what has caused me to put forth the effort in the study of people. :)
