author bio

           “I see 2012 as a tremendous crossroads of evolution, a choice point for humanity: Are we going to keep pretending to be so much less than we are, or finally step up and fulfill our vast potential as a species?”

       In 1987 Mark Borax created Soul Level Astrology, which uses the birth chart as a window to the soul. Since then he’s helped thousands of people with their soul purpose. In 2008 Frog Books and Random House co-published Mark’s first book, 2012: Crossing the Bridge to the Future, now a bestseller. It describes Mark’s seven-year apprenticeship with visionary astrologer Ellias Lonsdale. In the mystery school they founded, Mark learned to view 2012 as an evolutionary gateway to a transformative future that we each play a part in creating.

       Mark’s written for many small magazines and journals. In the 1980s Mark wrote comic book scripts and became the managing editor of Comics Interview magazine. He was befriended by his adolescent idol, Ray Bradbury, who became his literary godfather, believing in Mark’s writing when Mark had fallen into doubt. In 1998 Mark rode his Harley Davidson Low Rider through the U.S. and Europe, stopping for a year in the Tuscan countryside of Northern Italy. Mark lives in Vermont with his wife and young sons and can be contacted via his website, He’s available for readings and public talks, and writes a free online monthly newsletter, The Cosmic Weather Report.
