Kelli Fox CA NCGR IV, PMAFA, ISAR C.A.P., FAA
Kelli was first drawn to astrology during her childhood in Sydney, Australia. As early as eight years of age, she began recording birth dates and sun signs for anyone willing to share. Kelli's formal astrological studies began at the College of Humanistic Astrology. This led to her professional accreditation with multiple organizations including: CA NCGR IV (National Council for Geocosmic Research), PMAFA (Professional Member of the American Federation of Astrologers), ISAR C.A.P. (International Society for Astrological Research), and the FAA (Federation of Australian Astrologers).
In 1995 Kelli created astrology.com where she continued to live her passion until 2003. After taking a couple of years out to be with her family, she began work on new content and services including mobile phone apps, video horoscopes and forecasts.
Kelli was the first member of the Founders' Circle of Kepler College http://www.kepler.edu/ and is an emeritus member of its Board of Trustees. (Kepler College is the first college in the western hemisphere authorized to issue BA, AA and MA degrees in Astrological Studies.)
Kelli views astrology as a universal language through which the unique elements that make each of us who we are can be discussed, understood and developed. For Kelli, astrology is certainly not just about entertainment, but that doesn't mean it has to be dry and academic either. She sees her role as bringing this ancient science to our modern day life through current technologies - from web sites to mobile phones and video screens.
In 2004, with Neptune on her descendant and transiting Pluto conjunct her natal Moon, she had a near death medical experience that left her in a coma and on life support for two weeks. Kelli was fortunate to survive and return from the other side. With new found life, her passion to share the knowledge of astrology with people everywhere was re-ignited.
Kelli is a prolific content creator having brought forth over two million words for The Astrologer - the equivalent of 20 novels. In addition she records over 400 astrological video segments every month, from daily horoscopes and planetary updates, to annual forecasts and compatibility reports.
