Cafe Astrology is run by Annie Heese. Annie has been a student of Astrology since the age of twelve. Twenty-five years later, she is still actively researching, studying, and using Astrology. She is frequently found with her nose buried in Astrology books, her faithful ephemeris by her side, scribbling in her notebook and on her printouts. Annie has long abandoned her career in Accounting, and has since worked as a freelance writer for various online and print publications, as well as a reviewer of educational products. She is also a jewelry designer, incorporating handmade beads and gemstones into her handcrafted pieces.
About Cafe Astrology
Both the idea of creating this web site and its name were conceived one sunny, breezy afternoon over cups of steaming coffee. The Sun was in Aries, which is generally considered a good time for starting anything new.
Annie's goal is to maintain a site for anyone interested in Astrology, whether that interest is a casual or compelling one.
Articles are designed for the casual browser, the beginning student of Astrology, and the experienced Astrologer alike. They are the result of years of study, application, and research.
The Ask Annie column is set up for those who have burning questions about their lives. Annie's answers are written from an astrological perspective. She aims to help bring enlightenment to some of life's problems, using Astrology techniques as tools for making sense of life.

About the site's affiliation with Powell's Books: (I don't think there are any links left behind, but in case there are still some.) As a lover of books, I had the most awesome bookstore experience during a visit to Portland, Oregon, which is home to Powell's Books. The company now has a number of physical stores and warehouses, and Powell's City of Books is truly a landmark—a massive building filled with bookshelves that stock both new and used books alongside each other. Powell's online selection is equally as awesome. This is the site to go when you are looking for Astrology books on a large variety of topics, in new or used condition, and for rare and out-of-print titles. Point your browser to Powell's Books General Astrology Book Store.
