Note from Susan

by Susan Pomeroy

I can hardly believe that we're beginning our tenth year of publication! When we started Daykeeper back in September 2000, I never imagined becoming sole publisher. It was my mother's project; I was merely the facilitator. But those years of working so closely together wrought a transformation in me. Although I miss her very much—and seldom more than when I am preparing the new month's issue of Daykeeper—I am honored to be continuing her legacy.

Maya's interests in astrology and global politics still guide every issue. Her belief that ultimately, we will obtain full human rights, dignity, and opportunity for everyone on this planet is a lodestone. And her insightful, meticulous, and intuitive use of astrology to predict and understand both the personal and the political remains our inspiration.
