Decorating the Set (Location Scouting with Guest, Monte Farber)

Decorating the Set - From Hollywood to Your Home with Beth Kushnick

Welcome to Decorating the Set: From Hollywood to Your Home with Beth Kushnick! Have you ever wondered how a film or TV show gets permission to shoot inside someone’s home or business? This is location scouting. This week, Beth and Caroline sit down with location manager and long time friend of Beth’s, Monte Farber!


Monte Farber was born in Brooklyn, NY. He studied comparative religion and became interested in astrology in 1974 when he met his future wife and artistic collaborator, Amy Zerner. “Amy was studying astrology and I was studying Amy, so I learned astrology! It became our language of love.”

Farber’s desire to make astrology understood and accessible to a broad audience led him to devise books, book/card sets, and unique kits that also made other esoteric systems accessible, such as the tarot, alchemy, meditation, shamanism, psychic development, and relationships.

​Farber is now the world’s foremost creator of interactive personal guidance systems. Monte has over two million copies of his 40 books, divination systems, DVDs and Meditation CDs published around the world in fourteen languages by Sterling, St.Martin’s Press, Simon & Schuster, Penguin Books, Chronicle Books, Harper Collins, Tuttle Publishing, U.S. Games, and other publishers.

​He has licensed six of his interactive personal guidance systems to, LifetimeTV’s popular website. Starting in 2008, Monte made uncannily accurate – more than 80% correct- psychic predictions about world events, the economy and specific stocks every few months on dated-for-verification video clips interviewed by Alix Steele for Jim Cramer’s popular financial website

​Living in the exclusive Hamptons area of Long Island,New York, he has personally counseled many of the celebrities and business elite who know him as “The Best Astrologer in The Hamptons” (Dan’s Papers). His remarkable insights and down to-earth advice have been endorsed by leading visionary authors and company executives who use his unique skills as part of their important decision-making mix.
