I’ve always loved puzzles – word puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, even mysteries where you put the pieces together to solve the crime.  In my quest for spiritual enlightenment and healing of body, mind and spirit, I discovered life is just one HUGE puzzle and the journey through life is a treasure hunt for the pieces that will fit together and make sense of why you are here and what your purpose is.

This site is dedicated to some of the discoveries I’ve made.  You might say it encompasses vibrational healing, magick and the Law of Attraction.  That really is an oversimplification of it, but will due for now.

As the weeks, months, and years have unfolded here, I have shared, and hope to continue to share, some insights and information that I’ve learned and use.  I’ve revealed pieces I have discovered and how they have fit together for me, presenting them in the form of articles.  There’s more to come.

Because I’ve been an astrologer for over 45 years, and because astrology really does fit into all this, you will find a bi-weekly newsletter, entitled “Astrological Musings & More”, within these pages as well.  On July 31, 2012 I did a radio interview about natal astrology.  If you would like to hear this interview that happened on Inner Voice Intuitive Radio with Jennifer Sieck, use this link:

And who am I?  After 72 years in this incarnation, that might be a very long story. To most I am known as Samantha Herron.   To some I am known as Lady Maya.  Suffice it to say, besides 45+ years of astrology, I have been following and teaching the spiritual path of Wicca for almost 46 years, I am a licensed minister with the state of Ohio and a spiritual counselor.  I am also a tuning fork therapist and a practitioner of energy medicine and, most recently, a certified clinical aromatherapist.  I was the editor of a Pagan publication of the 1980s entitled Magickal Unicorn Messenger.  I also help originate an annual event called “Goddess Gathering” from 1982 – 2002 and coordinated that event for most of those years.  Currently, I live in SE Ohio, with my husband of 28 years, in a small town inside Wayne National Forest where I’ve been getting ready to open a place of healing for those who seek to heal and empower themselves.

DSCF0350Although the progress of that healing room is still not where I would like it to be, we have decided to unofficially open it to those seeking readings, spiritual counseling, and astrological counseling as well.

DSCF0342Come see us won’t you?

As you enter the room this mural greets you from the opposite wall. The mural is my interpretation of the card “Ixchel: Medicine Woman”  from Doreen Virtue’s Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards.  This is just one of the wonderful cards from her deck. (You can click on the pictures for an enlarged view of them.)

When we moved into our large Victorian house, we discovered that each room had a hand-stenciled border in it.  Before we did any painting, I hand copied a section of each one.  I’m pleased to say that this is the first border to be put back into place.  It’s so appropriate!  Lotus/water lily – a symbol of Kwan Yin.

I invite you to join me on this journey into healing, harmony and happiness!

    • Astrological Musings will no longer be sent by email. If you went all the way to the bottom of the Astrological Musings page (or any of the pages) on the site, there is a “Subscribe” button. If you used that to subscribe, each new posting I make of the newsletter – or anything else for that matter – will arrive in your email in box. If you have any problems let me know. This is all very new to me, as it is to you.

  1. Thank you for your visit today. Please come back at anytime you’d like, and enjoy the rest of your day.


  2. A motivating discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you need to write more about this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally folks don’t talk about such
    subjects. To the next! All the best!!

  3. Hi Samantha. You are a woman of many talents. Your Victorian house sounds wonderful…I lived in one as well and sold it a couple of years ago…still miss it! I wish you great success with your place of healing. When you are guided to where you are supposed to be, everything falls into place and it seems to be happening for you. Many blessings on your journey. Beverley

    • Thank you for your kind words. You are most welcome. That’s why, after all my years walking this Path, I felt there were some things I could say that might be useful to others. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

  4. Hello, Samantha. We’ve been connected for several years on LinkedIn, and this is my first visit to your site in some time. It’s good to see you once again, and thank you for posting your writings, both here and on LI. I loved reading your story and am happy to know you’re writing and sharing yourself and your thoughts, musings, and journey. Blessings and blessed be. Thanks for being you. 🌹☮️
