Rich Humbert has been practicing astrology for over 40 years. He is an accredited instructor with Aquarius Workshops in Los Angeles. He first encountered metaphysical ideas while stationed at Camp Pendleton in 1962. While browsing the Oceanside public library's unusually large collection of occult books, Annie Besant's writing flipped on his spiritual switch. After a brief flirtation with music in the late 60's, he taught himself how to cast a horoscope and started the life-long process of learning astrology.
He began his meditative work at the same time taking a mantra from Swami Satchidananda. He studied and then taught yoga under the auspices of the Integral Yoga Institute while living in their ashram. He taught yoga classes at Lorton Prison as well as at more liberated settings.
Fate brought him employment at the American Federation of Astrologers headquarters in Washington, D.C. in the early 1970's. Their vast library and the steady flow of major astrologers of the day was a priceless learning resource. He was extremely fortunate to study several years with the late Barbara Watters, the foremost political astrologer of that time.
Celestial Weather began in the late 1970's as a weekly radio spot on WHFS-FM in Washington D. C. His practice at that time included clients across the country and across the socio-economic spectrum.
He withdrew from active astrology practice in 1978 to concentrate on the material plane (no earth in his chart) by starting a computer-consulting firm. His study of astrology and meditative work continued privately.
After moving to Los Angeles in 1995, he resumed active work in astrology and soon began study with Marion March, celebrated author, founder of the UAC conferences and Aquarius Workshops. He revived Celestial Weather in the summer of 1998 as a web site and free subscribed weekly mailing. Since then Celestial Weather has grown to a mailing list of almost 2000 subscribed readers .
In 1999 he resumed teaching astrology by co-teaching a series of master classes with Marion March until the time of her death in 2001. He developed his own "Turning Points" classes in predictive methods for advanced students.
He continues to lecture, teach and consult with individuals and businesses internationally.
He was born February 22nd, 1943 at 8:34am in New York City
