"Thirty five years I've had my head in the stars! After years of consulting, teaching, broadcasting and writing, my current work involves in-depth study of nature’s seasonal processes, examining the physical properties of ruling planets, their metals and herbs, and looking more closely at the season’s traditional customs. A “perennial philosophy” has emerged that suggests that those characteristics endowed by our astrological inheritance are our own personal experience and expression of natural forces that operate all the time in this world Below. The birth chart then becomes a description of our fundamental "leaden" Nature and it becomes our life task to apply our consciousness towards manifesting its highest potential here on the earth - to be the gold!"

I live on the Somerset Levels with a man and three dogs, sing a lot and am grateful to have astrology as the language of my inner life. I never get tired of seeing an astrological energy answer its name by appearing in the eyes of the person whose chart I'm reading.
I love to bring astrology and astronomy together as our ancestors did. I love to try and explain what happens, in ways that are easy to understand, during eclipses of the Sun and Moon, when the planets go retrograde (backwards against the order of the constellations) and so on. I enjoy interpreting these events in an inspiring and helpful way, which is not to deny that some of them are challenging; but symbols are just that – symbols – which can be understood and used in many different ways. That was the original meaning of magic - perhaps. ‘We must always bear in mind that we are not going to be free, but are free already.’ Swami Vivekananda, in Indian Wisdom 365 days. ?
What has my journey with astrology been about? Many moons ago, an Aquarian lady asked me what sign I was. My interest was piqued, and I began a lifelong involvement with it. Along the long and winding road was studying with the Faculty of Astrological Studies, doing astrodrama and astrology camps, teaching, seeing clients and giving back-to-back readings on phone lines and at weekend fairs, and studying with the inestimable Liz Greene et al at her Centre for Psychological Astrology (where I was awarded their Diploma). Most recently, my attention has turned to the cycles of the outer planets and the astrology of events in the world at large (mundane astrology).??What kind of astrologer am I? You’ll never know until you meet me, but what has had a slow and steady impact on my life is one long love-hate experience with personal development, including psychotherapy, ki-aikido, meditation, relationship work, creativity; oh - and astrology.

My working process is a form of meditation, I go into an earth zone, considering its aspects: the millions of years of formation, the dynamic eco system, the gift of its life force energising the seed, my gratitude for abundance and my concern for the extensive decline of healthy soil, abused by industrial farming practices and the effects of climate change. The strata of coastlines inspire my thoughts of time and memory of place and the movement through it, the overlay, from prehistoric to present. My art practice is holistic nurturing: earth is life. I create aesthetic form as a blessing to good health and guardianship.
