A resident of Arizona since 1969, Charlotte Benson has practiced astrology as a career there since 1972.
She is a charter member and five-term president (President Emeritus) of the Arizona Society of Astrologers, one of the largest and oldest astrological organizations of its kind in the world.
Charlotte is very involved with supporting public awareness of the usefulness of authentic astrology.
She is popular lecturer, guest columnist, and media commentator on astrology, appearing regularly on regional radio and television programs, and at international astrology conferences.
As a life-long student of the celestial art, she has studied in such diverse places as France, Mexico, Japan, and India. Versed in both Western astrological methods and classic Vedic astrology techniques she offers a broad spectrum of information for her clients.
Charlotte is also very committed to promoting education and professional standards within the discipline of astrology at Arizona State University. Charlotte is:
the first president of the Arizona chapter of the National Council of Geocosmic Research;
a Founder’s Circle member of the Kepler College of Astrological Arts & Sciences;
a Founding Sponsor of the American Council of Vedic Astrology, and its Corporate Agent;
the assistant to the Executive Board, American College of Vedic Astrology;
Chair of the Legal Information Committee of the Association for Astrological Networking (the astrologer’s “union”), is included in “Who’s Who”, and Charlotte is also
on the faculty, and a curriculum advisor to the Executive Board of The Astrological Institute, a Federally accredited trade school for astrologers.
Charlotte has earned a rare Professional Diploma from the American Federation of Astrologers, and now mentors and tutors other aspiring astrologers to do the same.
The International Society for Astrological Research has granted her “Certified Astrological Professional” status. Charlotte is currently a candidate for Level IV certification through the National Council for Geocosmic Research, which is, according to Life magazine, “the stargazer’s Harvard.”
In her capacity as an experienced astrologer, Ms. Benson has served as a consultant to universities, police departments, municipalities, politicians and government leaders, television and radio stations, professional sports franchises and figures, and Fortune 500 corporations.

Her “by referral only”, private clientele includes thoughtful people and corporations from many nationalities, from virtually every walk of life. She has analyzed literally tens of thousands of charts.
Charlotte is elated about the recent mainstream interest in the celestial language. She expects to see real astrology accepted as the diagnostic tool it was meant to be.
