Janet Amid

“Mars was in Gemini; Moon was in Cancer; and Saturn was in Capricorn,” noted Janet Amid about the move she just made on April 11 to her new office space at 5600 Monroe St. in Building B. After saying that, she realized that the move to her first office in 1989 was on the exact same date, April 12; Mars was in Gemini; the Moon was in Cancer; and Saturn was in Capricorn. “Well, that figures,” she chuckled. “Those are good aspects. Of course, it is only fitting that I would plan my moves at that time on that date. Though I never in a million years expected it to be the exact same transits. Spooky how this works.”
“This new office is great and works well for me. I have more room, and it is a very quiet and peaceful place. I had decided it was time to move in mid March and I happened to see the ‘space available’ sign on the building. When I walked into this office suite, I knew this was the place for me,” she recalled.
In less than a month, Amid had repainted the office to her liking, a sage green in the waiting room and a deep purple in her reading room. “Colors that are soothing, restful and serene,” she reflected. “I moved on April 12 and I was giving readings on April 13.”
Amid’s first move had been to a small office on Monroe Street when she first started offering astrology readings as her full-time career. She had been giving readings in the evening and on weekends after spending her days at a full-time job. However, her client base and her reputation continued to grow thanks to word-of-mouth along with her appearance on a morning radio show three times a week and an evening show two nights a week. As demand grew, she realized she needed to be giving readings on a full-time basis. And that she has for the next three decades.
Amid’s passion for astrology began at an early age. “I learned everything I know from my father. He had an extraordinary gift and he spent every Friday night from the time I was 5 years old teaching me everything he knew about astrology. I still remember those sessions and treasure the evenings we spent together,” Amid recalls. “My mother was a very talented medium, and I’m also blessed to have received her gift, which I use from time to time in conjunction with my readings.”
She continued, “I am always excited to go to work. I am enthusiastic to see my clients and help them understand areas of their lives that can be explained with astrology. I love working one-on-one with people and helping them.”
While she studied psychology and worked as a social worker for a time, her passion has always been rooted in astrology. And that enthusiasm for what she does continues to be strong.
Amid sees clients Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 7 pm; Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm; and every other Sunday from noon until 3 pm. She is also available for parties, offering mini readings to guests, and business and personal lectures. In addition, Amid holds psychic events each year in the spring and fall.
