In 1992 Dikki-Jo, who has been an admirer and avid reader of The Witches' Almanac (TWA) since 1971, wrote a book review about TWA which was published in Body, Mind and Spirit magazine. Elizabeth Pepper spotted the piece and contacted Dikki-Jo, who responded and contributed a feature about Butterfly Magic. This appeared in TWA the next year. Meanwhile circumstances arose which necessitated the hiring of a new astrologer. Elizabeth began a nationwide search for someone to fill the position.
Dikki-Jo, a professional astrologer, sent some samples of her work from features published in Horoscope Guide, American Astrology and Dell Horoscope magazines as well as her credentials as a faculty member of The American Federation of Astrologers and President of Orlando’s Astrological Research Guild. She was surprised and pleased when her resume was the one selected by Elizabeth. Dikki-Jo has produced Presage, the birth sign forecasts, ever since. Eventually she began adding an Introduction to Presage, Eclipses and Retrogrades. Later Elizabeth asked her to prepare the Moon Calendar and Chinese Astrology each year as well. When Andrew Theitic became editor, upon Elizabeth’s passing into The Summerland, he asked Dikki-Jo to stay on and to add the yearly Fixed Star and Celebrity Horoscopes. Dikki-Jo enjoys preparing the astrology as well as various other features for The Almanac and considers the readers her second family.
