Susan Heinz is a professional astrologer & teacher in Santa Cruz since 1981. She brings together traditional & esoteric astrology, Indian Vedic astrology, tarot and Qabalah in her integration of astrological wisdom.
Susan studied art at both UC Davis and UCSC, in the 70s and 80s. She started her Astrology practice in 1982, and soon after in 1984, Susan began her studies of the Qabalah, with Amber Jayante, Pamela Eakins, and Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi. She taught her first Qabalah class with Pamela Wyley in the 90s and since then taught courses taking students through the 32 paths of activation on the Qabalistic Tree of life, which includes the wisdom of the Tarot.
In 2007, Majio, artist and dream facilitator, and Susan began the Qabalah/painting course, Painting into the Heart of Presence. In 2009, Susan, continued the course with her own students into the 22 paths of the Tree, which are the ancient archetypes of the Major Arcana, (ie, the Fool, the Magician, the High Priestess), in her own studio on Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz. Since then Susan has continued with 3 groups of students who continually bring the powers of creativity and artistic expression into beautiful and amazing manifestation.
“I am overwhelmed by the incredible paintings that the painters bring forward out of the depths of their imagination and psyche. For many it has been a healing journey, a mirror of themselves, which reflects their unique selves, and a delight in continuous discovery.” – Susan Heinz
