Haloli Richter, 64, astrologer

Haloli Richter, an astrologer, writer, translator and lecturer, died Sept. 11 of cancer at her home in McLean. She was 64.

A native of Linz, Austria, Ms. Richter graduated from Goddard College in Vermont, writing her thesis on “Bridging Psychology, Astrology and Mythology.” She was a student of the humanities, especially art history, philosophy and religions. Her love was classical music, with a special passion for Richard Wagner operas.

A champion swimmer, she won the Austrian championship at 14 in the 100-meter freestyle.

Her astrological practice was by referral only, and her client base was worldwide. Ms. Richter was the first and only astrologer to lecture at the Smithsonian Institution. She was a book reviewer for Astrology Now magazine as well as associate editor. She translated books on psychological astrology from German into English.

She served as executive director of Yes! Educational Society, a nonprofit institute for inner development and New Age learning affiliated with Yes! Bookshop in the District. She was co-founder of TYL Associates, a public relations and advertising firm.
