"ABOUT THE ASTROLOGER"
I began a serious study of Astrology at the age of sixteen, and
have devoted my entire professional life, (thirty-six plus years),
exclusively to the study and practice of Astrology.
I received my accreditation in Astrology from "The American
Federation of Astrologers" back in 1982. At that time, I was the
youngest person to pass their eight hour test, and given my
accreditation. This testing required that all mathematical chart
calculations be done by hand, not by calculator or computer.
"The American Federation of Astrologers" is one of the most
respected organizations in the world for the accreditation of
I also teach classes, give lectures, conduct workshops and
seminars, and have been invited to speak at several national
conferences given by various Astrological Organizations and
Groups. I also do Group Readings, Parties, and Charity Events.
I have written many articles in various national and local
periodicals. I have been a guest speaker and lecturer for
numerous cruise lines and have been a featured guest and
"on-air" personality for many radio and television programs all
over the country, and have hosted my own weekly radio talk
show called "Alternate Perspectives", in Wichita, KS, for two
I have over thirty-six years of experience as a full-time
professional astrologer, and have garnered a faithful world-wide
clientele. Over the years, the information, counsel, and advice
that I have given my clients, has proven an invaluable tool to
All texts and all of the interpretations and advice given are
original and authored by me. One of the key factors that I can
attribute the accuracy of my interpretations to, and is a major
part of my "Readings", is the "Follow-Up":
During the year following the reading, you are invited and
encouraged to call me with any follow-up questions that you may
have, and to let me know how things are proceeding. This is
part of the reading. This method has helped me to hone my
interpretations and accuracy over the past 36 plus years.
I approach astrology in a very scientific way: Planet A, in Sign B,
Equals Effect C. I pride myself on a practical and down-to-earth
philosophy. It is a psychological approach that will help you to
see the basic motivating forces in life, and in yourself. My
approach to Astrology is scientific and is results oriented. I
believe you will find my interpretations unique and very helpful.
Thank You and Best Regards, Darrell Steen, P.M.A.F.A

This image shows the edge of the giant gaseous cavity within the
star-forming region called NGC 3324. The glowing nebula has been carved
out by intense ultraviolet radiation and stellar winds from several hot, young
stars. A cluster of extremely massive stars, located well outside this image
in the center of the nebula, is responsible for the ionization of the nebula
and excavation of the cavity. The image also reveals dramatic dark towers
of cool gas and dust that rise above the glowing wall of gas. The dense gas
at the top resists the blistering ultraviolet radiation from the central stars,
and creates a tower that points in the direction of the energy flow. The
high-energy radiation blazing out from the hot, young stars in NGC 3324 is
sculpting the wall of the nebula by slowly eroding it away. Located in the
Southern Hemisphere, NGC 3324 is at the northwest corner of the Carina
Nebula (NGC 3372), home of the Keyhole Nebula and the active, outbursting
star Eta Carinae. The entire Carina Nebula complex is located at a distance
of roughly 7,200 light-years, and lies in the constellation Carina.
One light-year = traveling @ 186,000 miles per second,
x 60 seconds per minute, x 60 minutes per hour,
x 24 hours in one day, x 365 days per year!
Multiplied By 7,200 To Reach NGC 3324!
To walk 1 light-year, at a moderate pace of 20 minutes a mile, it would take
you 225 million years to complete your journey, (not including stops for
meals or the restroom). If you started just before dinosaurs appeared on
Earth, you'd probably be finishing your hike just about now. Even if you
hitched a ride on N.A.S.A.'s Mach 9.68x- 43A Hypersonic Scram Jet, the
fastest aircraft in the world, it would take about 95,000 years to cover the
You'll need a pretty big travel bag too; for walking such a distance requires
substantial supplies. You'd need 2 trillion Power Bars to fuel your trip.
You'd also produce a heap of worn-out shoes. The typical pair of sneakers
will last you 500 miles, so you'd burn through some 11.8 billion pairs of
shoes; and all that effort wouldn't get you very far, astronomically speaking,
because the closest star to our Sun, is Proxima Centauri which is 4.22
