Hi, I'm Cynthia Hansen Zehm
Welcome to Alacazem
Log in for Celestial Phenomena and astrological happenings. I'll be posting my weekly Alacazem Astrology column on this website along with the bi-monthly Luna Nueva column, Cynthia's blog and other ongoing cosmic observations and events. Thanks for visiting!
Welcome to Alacazem! I'm a third generation astrologer living in the high mountain desert of the American Southwest. I was introduced to astrology by my maternal grandmother, Alice Wood Carter, and grew up reading her American Astrology and Dell Horoscope magazines. By age 12, I had a general working knowledge of Sun-sign astrology. In 1977 I moved to Telluride, CO and began doing readings in the upstairs loft of the Ritzy Gypsy, a boutique above the infamous Moon Gypsy Saloon, with my partner, Ginette Petrie. In 1988 I began writing Alacazem: Astrology and Metaphysics for the Telluride Times. The column has been published for over 20 years, and currently appears each week in The Taos News and Telluride Inside...and Out
