About Kathy

“Professional Aquarian” is the shorthand for my multiple self-employment tracks, which have coexisted on a bridge between intuition and the rational mind for more than 25 years.

I am a professional astrologer, psychic and Tarot adviser who helps individuals and business owners make decisions and better understand (and laugh about!) themselves, their options and the people in their lives. I have pursued astrology since junior high, read the Tarot since high school and studied formally at the Houston Institute of Astrology and in workshops with leading astrologers across the country.

I am a tested and verified member of Best American Psychics and the Certified Psychics Society and trained in mediumship at the Institute for Spiritual Development. In addition to teaching Tarot, astrology, empathic energy management and related metaphysical topics, I teach, design, lead and produce guided meditations for relaxation and personal growth.

I bring to my counseling my diverse life experience as an attorney, a small business owner, a performing artist and a writer.

I am a regular contributor to Astrology Hub and OM Times. I have written about astrology for a variety of regional, national and online publications. In addition to forecasts, monthly horoscopes and Kidscopes, I’ve done canine forecasts for Dogster.com and food trend predictions for My Table magazine. I was Cosmopolitan’s resident astrologer at the Austin and Houston stops on the magazine’s 1997 Fun Fearless Female college tour, and for a couple of years in the late 90s I was the Oracle Corporation’s oracle at its Houston holiday parties.

Kathy Lawyer
Portrait by Suzanne Savoy of SavoyShots.com

I am a lawyer with a practice in New Jersey and Texas that concentrates on small business matters, contracts and writers’ rights.  A large portion of my career has been devoted to representing nonprofit arts groups, gay couples and people with AIDS. I’ve taught business law (at Rice University), legal writing (U. of Houston Law Center) and seminars on self-employment. I created and co-owned Metaphysiques, a Houston-based aerobics and meditation class center and tape producer, as well as two indie record labels. I am also a singer and actress who has performed classical and choral music, played Houston’s acoustic circuit, done sketch comedy and acted in NYC, Texas and New Jersey theater and lots of video and indie film. (Behold my IMDb.com page!)

A long-time freelance writer, I have covered food, off-beat travel, bars and restaurants, general interest features and legal matters for lay and law audiences, and won awards from the Association of Food Journalists and the Houston Press Club. My finds and musings also appear sporadically in the Compendiblog (chronicling and commenting on real-life weird), the food and drink blog Moon in the 6th, and Cafe Compendium.

Since you’ve bothered to read this far, I’ll treat you to some fun facts.

  •  I love mimetic architecture and wind-up toys (care to guess my moon?)
