RONNIE GALE DREYER is an internationally known astrological consultant, author, lecturer, and teacher specializing in Western and Indian astrology (also known as Jyotisa or Vedic astrology). She uses the best techniques of each system in her practice, and was among the first wave of astrologers who travelled East and introduced Indian astrology to Western audiences. Based in New York City, Ronnie has clients and students throughout the world, ranging from the ordinary to the extraordinary, with teachers, politicians, salesmen, doctors, bookkeepers, sports figures, professors, and movie stars among their professions.

She lectures extensively for astrology groups and conducts ongoing courses and webinars on all subjects. Ronnie has been on the faculty of conferences throughout the world (including United Astrology Conference (UAC), Association for Asian Studies, and the World Sanskrit Conference), taught at the American College of Vedic Astrology (ACVA), and was Guest Lecturer on Indian Cosmology for the M.A. Distance Learning Program in Cultural Astronomy at University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

Ronnie is the author of Vedic Astrology, Venus, Healing Signs, Your Sun and Moon Guide to Love and Life, and Indian Astrology. Her books have been translated into Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Czech, Hungarian, and Bulgarian. She has contributed to numerous anthologies, ranging from a chapter in Religious Transformation in Modern Asia (co-authored with Dr. Nicholas Campion), to chapters in Under One Sky, Astrology for Women, and Hindu Astrology Lessons. She has written gift books, columns, articles and book reviews for Mountain Astrologer, Nylon, Dell Horoscope, American Astrology, Horoscope Guide, and many more.

Ronnie holds a B.A. in English and Theater from the University of New Mexico, and an M.A. in South Asian Languages and Cultures from Columbia University. Her master’s thesis was a translation and analysis of five chapters on women’s astrology from a Sanskrit text. Ronnie learned Jyotisa in Benares, India where she studied with Muralil Sharma, a mathematics professor at Sanskrit University, and Deoki Nandan Shastri, a commercial astrologer. She holds the NCGR Level IV certificate (C.A. PAA-NCGR).

Ronnie co-founded the first astrological computer service in the Netherlands where she lived for 13 years and worked in the publishing industry as manuscript reader and editorial consultant of new age and self-help books. She is currently Editorial Director of Words and Things Press.

Her participation in the astrological community spans many years as memberletter editor for NCGR (National Council for Geocosmic Research) from 1999-2017, secretary of AFAN (Association for Astrological Networking) from 1992-1998, and its presiding officer from 1999-2003. Her awards include Jyotish Kovid and Jyotish Vachaspati from the Indian Council of Astrological Sciences, Jim Lewis Community Service Award from AFAN, and the Marion D. March Regulus Award for Community Service.


The initial astrological consultation consists of an interpretation of your horoscope, a map of the sky at the precise moment that you were born. The reading, which is completely confidential, consists of all areas of your life--career, romance, health talents, difficulties, family, etc.--as well as a forecast of the year ahead and how you can strengthen planetary afflictions. In addition to a general reading of the horoscope, I discuss significant current issues, and ask you to specify concerns and questions, if any, prior to the reading. If you know your chart, I focus less on details you already know, and more on what lies ahead.

Other services include an annual update for returning clients, electing a date for events that include marriage, starting a business, medical procedure, compatibility readings, location readings, or just one question about a specific area of your life. Ronnie specializes in but is not limited to the horoscopes of women and their unique issues.

Sessions are conducted via telephone or video chat. I record the consultation digitally and email it as a downloadable MP3 and MP4 file (if by video chat) on the weekend of or after the reading. Please make payment below and I will reach out to you within 24 hours to set up an appointment. If you have any questions before making payment you can reach out for more information: ronniegaledreyer@gmail.com

Purchase book for $24.95 (postage included for all U.S. orders) The Psychology of Astro*Carto*Graphy
By Jim Lewis with Kenneth Irving, Words and Things Press.

Astro*Carto*Graphy®, developed by the late Jim Lewis, revolutionized astrology by transforming the ancient horoscope wheel into a world map that shows at a glance where a person can find love, money, vitality, or even jump-start a fading career - simply by moving to a new location. The Psychology of Astro*Carto*Graphy, based on Lewis' writings, notes, and lectures, with additional material by Kenneth Irving, has long been hailed as the definitive work on the subject, and this new edition revises and extends the information found in the original. Detailed explanations of the changes each planet can bring to a particular location help the reader to apply Astro*Carto*Graphy's insights to his or her own life. The book also includes useful notes, an index, historical and technical notes on Astro*Carto*Graphy, a resource section for further study, and afterwords on Jim Lewis, the man and the teacher, and the continuing charitable work that stems from his legacy.

Healing Signs: The Astrological Guide to Wholeness and Well-Being, by Ronnie Gale Dreyer, Random House.

Also available in Ebook format. 

Have you ever wondered why one person seems prone to back and neck pain, while another is always suffering from colds and fevers - despite similar environments, work habits and nutrition? The answer could be as simple as the day you were born. In Healing Signs, Ronnie Gale Dreyer explores why the planets affect the human body, and how, by understanding this relationship, one can experience a higher standard of health and well-being than ever before. Though based largely on standard Western astrology, the book includes suggested diet, exercise and color and gem  therapy options to help every sign maintain optimum health. Also includes information on how current planets affect health. Translated into Dutch, Portuguese, Hungarian and Bulgarian. Highly Recommended by Susan Miller, creator of Astrology Zone
