Marcia practiced as a professional astrologer for eight years. She took astrological classes for over two years. After these studies, she passed the 7-hour exam given by the Atlanta Board of Astrology Examiners, a Board set up by the City to formulate and grade exams to be given to aspiring astrologers wishing to practice legally in the City of Atlanta. Marcia later was a member of this Board for four years, and Chairperson for three of those years. She was also active in the Metropolitan Atlanta Astrological Society, serving as president for a year. She was also Chairperson of the Curriculum Committee, as well as working in other areas of this organization.
Before becoming an astrologer, Marcia was involved with various New Age, occult, and Eastern beliefs and practices, including Inner Light Consciousness, Tibetan Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, Hindu teachings and meditation, and psychic development classes. During these years, she also participated in past life regression, numerology, Tarot cards, spirit contact, seances, astral travel, and received a spirit guide through a guided visualization.
Being an astrologer and involved in the New Age/ occult community gave Marcia a diversity of friends and astrological clients including witches/pagans; New Age healers; psychics; palm readers and card readers; Sufis; followers of Rajneesh, Sai Baba, Muktananda, Maharaji, and other gurus; Hare Krishna devotees; est and Silva Mind trainees; and others. Through these contacts and her own experiences, she became familiar with a wide spectrum of beliefs and practices that were an intrinsic part of the New Age and occult community.
As an astrologer, Marcia taught astrology for over five years, wrote for several astrological and New Age publications (some articles were translated into German and Spanish for European magazines), conducted workshops, did public speaking, did a weekly spot for a psychic’s cable TV show, and was interviewed by the “USA Today” news show and by “The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.”
Since becoming a Christian, Marcia has been on several radio shows, including “Unshackled!,” Bill Bright’s “WorldChangers,” “Janet Parshall’s America,” and the “Dawson McAllister Live” show for teenagers. She has also been on Christian television, including having her testimony dramatized on Dr. D. James Kennedy’s show. She has led workshops and spoken at conferences, churches and retreats, and written for Christian publications. Marcia is the author of SpellBound: The Paranormal Seduction of Today’s Kids (Cook, 2006).
Marcia’s ministry is CANA/Christian Answers for the New Age, and she is a missionary with Fellowship International Mission, an independent mission board based in Allentown, PA. CANA is an informational and outreach ministry.
Marcia graduated with High Honors from Florida Presbyterian College (now Eckerd College), St. Petersburg, FL, with a degree in literature. Marcia has a Masters in Religion from Southern Evangelical Seminary, Charlotte, NC.
About Chelsey Riddle:
Chelsey Riddle is the niece of Dr. June Knight and she recently received the Lord in her heart. She shared her story on Facebook:
I just want to take a minute to praise God for everything He has done for me. Many of you on my Facebook know me from back in college, and you knew me as an atheist. I’m sure many of you are wondering what has happened to me to make me do an abrupt change. So, for the past 5 years or so I was heavily into tarot cards and horoscopes. Over a year ago I decided I was done with the cards, see there are about 60 or so cards in a deck, and one night I asked it if it was the devil. It gave me the yes card. Now that could have easily been a coincidence but I asked it ten times and I got the same card every time. I deleted the app and began to have terrible nightmares and hallucinations. On my way to church the rod of my car went through the engine. I made it there after getting another car. The Pastor said a prayer and I could feel the spirit leave me. I got an overwhelming feeling of peace. Unfortunately I didn’t learn my lesson and continued to use horoscopes, like full blown year long charts. This year, I decided I was done with all of that, on the day of the eclipse. I wanted to get back into church, honestly just to meet some nice people. Everything around me went nuts. I went nuts. I was having hallucinations again. It’s quite a long story and I’ll probably write a book or start a blog or something to tell the full story, but, it tried to trick me into thinking I was dealing with God, but the devil doesn’t like God getting the credit, so eventually he revealed that it was not God I was dealing with. I immediately went and got rebaptized. Immediately I stopped hallucinating and strange things happened to me less and less. And I just happen to run into someone today who knew someone with a similar experience. This stuff is real. And your looking at someone who wasn’t a believer. I’m a believer now. By Gods grace he saved me and I just hope and pray He will use my story to help as many people as possible. I recommend anyone who has dealt with any sort of tarot cards, horoscopes, ouji boards or anything like that to seek out a Pentecostal pastor. God is here for situations just like mine. And if you take away your fear of it, He will give you an overwhelming feeling of peace, the best way I can describe it is that it feels like your body is full of light and happiness. So, like I have said before, thank you Jesus that I was raised in church. Also, if there is anyone out there reading this that feels like it is too late for them, God is a forgiving God, ask and you shall receive! He did it for me and I was a sinner for sure, but Jesus came for the sinners. So that’s my story, the gist of it anyway. Y’all can read the rest of it once I get that book or blog up. This is why I will praise God for the rest of my life.
