Astrology, mythic poetry and the spirituality of India have been constant companions on my life's journey. Growing up in Milwaukee, WI, I was fascinated by the myths of the Greek and Roman gods and by the hero's mythic quest, especially Parzival's quest for the Holy Grail.
As a teenager, music was a great inspiration. The lyrics of the Beatles, Moody Blues, Donovan and Bob Dylan inspired my passion for poetry, philosophy, spirituality and India. During that time, I began playing and writing music, which is a creative outlet I still enjoy (some songs I have written can be heard on my Photos & Links page). In my late teens, I met my Gurudev, Swami Rama of the Himalayas, and took my first astrology classes. Together, these interests were important signposts that would point the way for my future journey in life.
Then, I ventured my way onto the “road most traveled” and pursued a career in the corporate world, where my roles evolved into working with individuals and groups as a trainer, coach, manager and productivity consultant. These planning, prioritization, and leadership skills contribute to my present work as an astrologer and add a practical aspect to my mythic and soul based consultations as an astrologer.
It was through this work that I met my wife, Tamala Sappho in the fall of 1989. In 1993, Sappho and I were married at Paramahansa Yogananda’s Lake Shrine in Pacific Palisades, CA, while we lived in Los Angeles. We have traveled together as best friends and as soul mates for 22 years now!
After having moved to Minneapolis, MN, a fork in the road of life was accompanied by minor health issues and increasing personal dissatisfaction with my work (I was not yet an astrologer). So, in a moment of great inspiration, I left the corporate world and, with the emotional support of my loving wife, I returned to my passion for astrology. My life-long interest in astrology that began as a teenager was transformed into a career of service to others when I founded The Traveler’s Well in 2001.
The skills I developed in my years in the corporate world now find more meaningful expression by working with clients to connect the myth and inspiration of their birth chart with their direct life experiences and goals in a personally meaningful way. Planning skills like setting goals for the future and prioritization find practical daily expression through astrology. The yogis of India have taught me that each person can choose to become the architect of their own life and by doing so "move in harmony with the Sun, Moon and stars". The goal of my services are to provide useful and practical information to my clients to honor this notion.
My spiritual beliefs are the foundation of my life and my calling to serve others - my dharma. The following quotes from my Gurudev Swami Rama form the core of the intention for The Traveler's Well (read more dedications to Swami Rama and Swami Veda Bharati):
"The most ancient traveler in the universe is love."
"Why are the sun, moon and stars constantly on the move?
If you know the purpose of their movement,
then move in harmony with them.
If you do not know, then move in harmony with them still,
for by doing so,
one day you will know their purpose."
"You are the architect of your life and you decide your destiny."
Travel and being a traveler has transformed our life and continues to be our muse. In 1998, we took our first international trip and spent three weeks in Rishikesh, India (India Photo Journal). Starting in 2001, we become “frequent travelers” to Europe exploring and imbibing its culture, quality of life, history and art. Based on this travel, we had a strong desire to relocate to Europe. So, in the Spring of 2007, we took a test drive and spent 1 month in Germany (Germany Photo Journal). In the Summer of 2008, we took another test drive and spent 1 month in Paris (Paris Photo Journal).
In February of 2010, after many years of planning and with strong move transits influencing us, we finally made the big move and relocated to our new home in Munich, Germany. From a business perspective, I interact with clients worldwide from Germany just as I did from the United States and the relocation has been essentially transparent from that perspective. Now, we live where we each are supported astrologically in very comfortable ways. The road goes ever on and on....
Scott's Birth Chart & A Cute Photo...
Born July 3, 1957; Milwaukee, WI; 7:45 AM
The image of the Traveler's Well, brought to life through the artistic work of Todd Dakins, represents the unending cycles of the zodiac. This image is intended to convey a couple of key themes. First, the reflection of the sun, moon and stars in the well, symbolically represents a birth chart and the keys to unlock meaning in our lives if we take time to stop and reflect upon them. Second, the Celtic triple knot represents the place where the circles of the body, mind and spirit are united together in harmony.
