About Glorija Lawrence
My sister, Geraldine introduced me to the word astrology back in the late 1970’s but it wasn’t until April 1983 when I saw an advertisement in the local paper that said “Six astrology lessons with Doris Greaves” that I began to study this fascinating subject.
I had just bought a coffee shop in Mornington and the only free time I had was on the weekends. I really had no idea what it meant to study astrology but it sounded like a good idea and I was ready for a new adventure.
When Doris said that it was her first beginners class for thirty years I knew I was meant to be there and I have been studying astrology or should I say Cosmobiology ever since.
From the very first day I walked into a classroom, totally devoid of any astrological knowledge whatsoever, my life has never been the same.
I felt like Alice falling down the rabbit burrow, on a journey into wonderland. It was one adventure after another. I was nick-named the psychic astrologer, as Doris soon noticed my psychic perception was far better than my astrological knowledge in those early days.
Doris Greaves was the feature astrological writer for the “New Idea Magazine” and when they introduced the computerized horoscope I started working for her.
It was a great learning curve. People sent in their birth details and a booklet was produced from a computer program that Doris had edited. It was a very successful marketing campaign and we produced literally thousands of them over a number of years.
Later I became her personal assistant and my whole world was a busy round of social events. The roles I played included assisting with writing, answering letters, visiting radio stations, social luncheons, helping with clients and cooking for visiting astrologers and other dignitaries at her dinner parties.
During the 1990’s I travelled with Doris to America and New Zealand on various lecturing and teaching tours and attending several conventions. I have also lectured in most Australian states. I have made many wonderful friends.
There have been times when I have been able to predict or should I say manipulate some amazing astrological aspects that have had a wonderful outcome, but there have been other times I had to go headlong into the experience and do the best I could.
Some experiences in life seem to be already scripted and appear like a cross we have to bare. Planetary aspects are such that sometimes we are in a tight corner with very little room to move and we just have to wait until the ordeal is over. Other times it seems that everything just falls into place with the greatest of ease.
Either way, as we move through life’s experiences, it is all in the perception and our attitude to the overall conclusion which shapes our character and creates our destiny.
It is all about coping or not coping and as Pastor Robert Schuller once said, “Tough times Don’t Last but Tough People Do.”
