Goodavage served in the South Pacific during World War II and was awarded both the Bronze Star and the Silver Star. After the war he attended the Philadelphia Museum College of Art, Temple University, and the University of Pittsburgh (B.A., 1953). He began his journalistic career in 1954 with the Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph and later worked for such papers as the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Chicago Tribune, and the New York Times. Along the way Goodavage became interested in astrology and joined the American Federation of Astrologers. His first major writing in the field, Astrology: The Space Age Science, appeared in 1965. The next year that book was picked up as the first title in the New American Library paperback "Mystic Arts Series." It was followed by Write Your Own Horo-scope (1969), the Astrology Guide Almanac for 1970 and The Comet Kohoutek 1974.

Goodavage also wrote two astrological columns for Saga magazine and the Bell McClure syndicate. His significant production of books through the 1970s slowed in the 1980s, but he continued to write popular articles on astrology and related topics.
