About Mary Ann

Astrologer, Numerologist, & Interfaith Minister

“As above, so below”. . . the ancients understood this well, and from that, astrology came into being. 

Mary Ann began her studies with Numerology – the Science of Numbers – which reveals so much  through the birth name and birthdate! From that beginning, she soon realized that to truly understand numbers, she must learn astrology. Astrology provides the opportunity to assist others to better understand their own life energies, and even how that energy interacts with another in relationship.  Ultimately, Astrology can provide a better understanding of who we are, and of the energies surrounding the happenings in the life.  Astrology, Numerology, and the Astrology of the I Ching provide a glimpse of the blueprint of the life, or more specifically, of the ebb and flow of the energies surrounding the life.  

Mary Ann received her Foundation Training in Astrology through the Faculty of Astrology Studies in the United Kingdom. Currently, she is in formal study for her Master of Astrology of Certification with Master Astrologers, Noel Tyl & Basil Fearrington.   She views all that she does as a “life-long study” because there is always so much more to learn and understand!


Numbers are a universal language, and Mary Ann offers introductory classes about numerology, how to discover much about yourself and your life journey through your name, birth date and more!  If this is an area that interests you, contact Mary Ann to see when an upcoming class will be held.  Email: SpiritualHealingTemple@gmail.com . 

About Mary Ann:

After many years raising children and working as a Certified Professional Librarian, Mary Ann was “called”: first into ministry as a Local Pastor in the United Methodist Church; then . . . into the world of the Saints, the Angels & Archangels;  and, into the unexpected . . .  the world of the Shaman & Healer - the world of Grandmother Standing Bear, aka Nancy Higgins.  As all unfolded rapidly, in 2006,  “the doors opened” and her journey of a lifetime truly began!  Numerology became the gateway to the World of Astrology; and the study of the I Ching amazingly blended with all that she knew, and was to come to know - it, too, translated into numbers! And these, along with shamanism, angels, and oh, so much more, broke-down the constricted walls of “Methodism”, opening the doors . . . calling her to learn more . . . to be more . . . In January 2008, Mary Ann followed Spirit’s guidance & left United Methodist Ministry.  Mary Ann and Nancy answered their “call” to work together.
