Charlene R. Johnson grew up in the northwest with an inborn interest in nature, animals and Native American traditions and people. That connection to nature and a passion for writing are so much a part of her that it all carried over into an adult, working life and a passion for knowing more and digging deeper. From writing full-length books of fiction from the age of 7 or 8, to covering the Thoroughbred industry – her first career – and writing on behalf of the environment, she is always writing. She is an active member of the Outdoor Writers’ Association and until recently, was also active as a long-time member of the Florida Outdoor Writers’ Association. Only because she recently located to New Mexico is that one lapsing. Currently she is retired from a deeply passionate career working for the Florida Park Service. Now retired, she is working as hard as ever as a professional astrologer, archetypal consultant, and a columnist for the Taos News.
She has also long been a student of the human condition on planet Earth, working as a co-facilitator in therapeutic workshops held out in nature, reading spiritual books, including everything by Caroline Myss from the day her name became a name, and studying the Ancient Wisdom Traditions under a Master from England. Due to an extraordinarily shy childhood, she launched into the study of self-evaluation and awareness at a very early age, recognizing that if she didn’t change herself, she’d never survive in the world of humans. She discovered astrology in the early 70s and never looked back, using it always as a personal clue into human behavior. But it was when she met the metaphysical Master, Dr. Douglas Baker that she dove into the Ancient Wisdom Teachings, most of all Esoteric Astrology. At her teacher’s strong encouragement (!) she finally hung her professional shingle in 2000.
Long before this, she had already known of Caroline Myss and her archetypal work and knew that it fit like a hand in glove with the astrology. She dreamed of becoming an archetypal consultant from the very first workshops Caroline ever held, but could not afford the training or travel at that time. Many years later, she is thrilled to have finally attained this personal and professional goal, becoming a Certified Archetypal Consultant. She believes the combination of Archetypes and Astrology is a match made in heaven.
While she currently lives in New Mexico, she regularly travels to Florida where she lived for 35 years before moving in 2016. She still has a strong client base there, as well as friends and family, so, she works in both areas, or anywhere else she is called. She considers herself globally available however, as she skypes and telephones with clients all over the planet.
