Susan Miller is a pioneer of the Internet, a businesswoman, publisher, and author of 14 best-selling astrology books. An accredited astrologer, she is the founder of AstrologyZone.com where she writes comprehensive monthly forecasts available on the Internet. Started in 1995, Susan’s website is visited by 13 million unique readers annually. According to Google Analytics, her site is #1 in readership in America. Astrology Zone® is also read internationally, where 52% of her web traffic is based, emanating from 132 countries.
Susan is also a regular, monthly contributing editor to four international fashion magazines: Vogue Japan, Vogue China, W South Korea, and Amica, a glossy fashion magazine based in Milan for Italian readers. In the US, Susan was a contributing editor for Instyle for five years, and prior to that, for Elle Magazine for six years.
Susan’s corporate clients are too numerous to list, but most recently she was invited by Louis Vuitton to help celebrate Mr. Vuitton’s 200th birthday. In addition to speaking to selected LV press, Susan also designed a window in concert with a creative team from the Creative Lab in London, displaying the solar system within one of Mr. Vuitton’s classic trunks. In September 2021, Susan’s window design was replicated in 400 Louis Vuitton boutiques worldwide.
In 2020, just prior to the Coronavirus shutdown in New York City, from January 1 to March 1, Susan designed her own pop-up Astrology Zone shop in Bloomingdale’s flagship New York City 59th Street location. Susan’s shop was situated on the main floor where Susan, working with Bloomingdale’s buyers in multiple departments, displayed many types of gifts, appropriate for Fire, Earth, Air, or Water signs. The beautifully decorated 1,200-square foot boutique with ceiling to floor continuous films of the four elements was replicated in Bloomingdale’s stores in Bergen County New Jersey, Union Square in San Francisco, and in the Westside Mall in Los Angeles.
Susan has two popular apps that are available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. The first is called “Daily Horoscope Astrology Zone + More by Susan Miller,” which is offered in two versions—free and paid subscription. Her premium paid version is a three-time award winner, receiving first prize for compelling content from the Media Excellence Awards. Susan’s app, first created in 2003, and updated several times, was most recently completely redesigned in August 2020. The premium version of her app was given the Honoree award for three consecutive years by the Webby Awards.
Her second, newest app, also available on the Apple App Store and Google Play, was introduced in June 2022 and is called “Moonlight: Phases of the Moon by Susan Miller.” Her app reports many ephemeral facts, including the eight moon phases, which of the 12 signs the moon will be traveling through that day, and its most important feature, the precise time the moon becomes void-of-course—and when that period stops. The moon goes void continually at random intervals, sometimes for a matter of minutes, but most often for several hours or more than a day.
Readers will know when to sidestep a void-moon period no matter where they live or happen to be traveling. Both “Daily Horoscope” and “Moonlight” employ GPS location services to report accurate important information for each day on the calendar worldwide regardless of where the app user is on the planet. Her Moonlight app goes up to the year 2050 and is meant to be used every day so that app users will always know when to time their most vital initiations. Susan Miller’s Moonlight app is considered unique for a mass audience, and like her other app, is beautifully designed and is supremely user friendly.
Finally, in the astrological community, Susan was a finalist in the Professional Image category of the Regulus Awards at the United Astrology Conference in Orlando, Florida. (The conference takes place every five years and attracts an international audience.) The Regulus Award is the highest honor given to an astrologer for their contribution to the field of astrology. The award is named after Regulus, the brightest star in the night sky.
Rasa Priya is a unique sacred sound alchemist who has studied the healing arts for more than 30 years. His approach is original, artistic and beautifully creative. He combines spirituality, quantum healing, mindfulness, science, art, and various styles of music in order to create a vibrationally sacred space for a deep healing journey. Many who experience Rasa’s work, have transformed their lives through self realization, self acceptance, self love, and healing from old wounds.
As a child, Rasa grew up in an abusive home and sought playing music as a way to escape, a safe place for self expression. Early on, he was recognized by his music teachers as gifted and was even featured in a public performance after only one month of instruction. As a young teen Rasa struggled to find his way in the world, troubled by the ways of the human condition and the state of world affairs. After some time, Rasa eventually turned to spirituality as a way to heal his internal conflict. Combining music and spirituality seemed like a perfect match. Music allowed the freedom of creative exploration and expression, beyond the rigid constraints of his limited conditioning and perception.
Rasa’s desire for service led him into healthcare where he earned degrees in respiratory therapy and nursing. As a healthcare worker, he discovered the relationship between wellness and internal conflict. He noticed how much perspective and thoughts influence body chemistry. Rasa was often frustrated with the superficial approach and limitations of western medicine. “In western medicine we mostly treat symptoms. Rarely do we address the root causes of suffering”, Rasa explains. Searching for answers, both professionally and personally, Rasa journeyed to India where he stayed in temples, studying meditation, spirituality, and music related to spiritual cultivation. Rasa’s interest in spirituality and music continued and he created a kirtan (chanting) band, Jivatma, and ended up playing mostly for small gigs and festivals. After many years, Rasa left the healthcare industry and devoted himself fully to his life long dream of music and healing.
Rasa began having unusual experiences as a child. His parents recall him seeing and speaking to a being that they could not see, but thought of it as a creation of a normal childhood imagination. By age 7, Rasa had a series of dreams and visions that appeared other worldly. Many of the things he saw he could not understand at the time, he could not make sense of things…until now. “In one vision, an entity with white light as a face showed me the future. At the time I thought he was Jesus. In this vision, people were projecting their fear onto one another, striking out at each other” Rasa said. He points out that although this concept is easily understood at present, he had no idea what this meant as a child. Rasa shares that he was shown how he came from source and that he had to pass through some kind of dense layer in order to manifest into this material world. Another vision came many years later, when Rasa was visited by six light beings. They told him they were neither male or female, and that he was really a part of their family. As many of us do, Rasa set these experiences aside and carried on with his life, not really knowing what to do with the information, or if it was even real. Feeling a deep internal call, he moved to Maui where his life dramatically transformed. He engaged in deep forms of spiritual practice, became a student of the Vedas, studied massage and reiki, and explored with various plant medicines. Many of these practices revealed his natural relationship with energy and healing.
Maui Sound Healing-
Maui Sound Healing is the creation of Rasa Priya and Sarah Sundari. Their unique approach and eclectic style take the listener deep within, a truly healing experience. They offer private sound healing sessions, shamanic (shadow work) sessions, and retreats on the island of Maui.
Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!
A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.
In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.
The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
