Today we sadly mark the passing of Noel Jan Tyl, who authored more than 30 books on astrology and related topics. His first book, The Horoscope Identity, was published by Llewellyn 46 years ago and led to a long-standing friendship with Carl Llewellyn Weschke. The two became neighbors in St. Paul, MN during the 1970s, and he helped Carl at book fairs and conferences. Carl had many great anecdotal stories about their time together.

She was a frequent guest on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. Guiley was a consulting editor of FATE Magazine and a frequent lecturer across the country.
Her knowledge and research will live on in her books and through the countless people she enlightened with her work.
