Letter from Cheryl

Hi Todd,

I just wanted to drop a line. Of course I am a huge fan of your mother’s writing, but, I had to write and let you know that I find your talent every bit as intriguing and compelling to read. Of course you each have your own flair & flavor, but both are wonderful! I hve alerted every Anne McCaffrey fan that I know, to encourage them to also run out and buy all of your books as well…so that they know they will not be disappointed in your wonderful writing as well!

I know your mom has published her birth data (birthday, year and city/state as well as her birth time. I am hoping you will also do so.

I am an astrologer of 30 years, mostly I do a lot of research with only a small clientele. One area I have been working on is known authors…finding the many correlations and planetary markers between authors. There is one odd thing I wanted to mention along the lines of Astrology…is your mom’s chart as is quoted in her bio. “Anne McCaffrey was born on April 1st, 1926, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, at 1:30 p.m., in the hour of the Sheep, year of the Fire Tiger, sun sign Aries with Taurus rising and Leo mid-heaven (which seems to suggest an early interest in the stars)” Ok, this is impossible…lol. I know it “sounds” right to a lot of people, but she is actually a Leo Rising, Sun sign of Aries and a Taurus Midheaven. For her bio to be correct, the entire zodiac would have to turn backwards, one can NOT have a Leo rising AND a Taurus Midheaven. I can only assume she was told incorrectly…however the interpretation is correct, but it is her Leo rising that indicates an inte
rest in the stars…not to mention the Leo rising also indicates a great success in life thru one’s passion as well as a discipline in utilizing her own innate gifts.

Thank you,

Hi Cheryl,

I was born on April 27th, 1956 in Montclair, New Jersey. I believe the time was 5:30 a.m.

I recall many years ago learning enough about astrology and reading ephemerides (way before there were personal computers) and doing my birth chart. As a writer, it’s often a convenient shorthand to use astrological signs as broad indicators of personality (Fiona, for example is a Leo).
