“We are born at a given moment, in a given place and … we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born.” Carl Jung
Astrology is an ancient art that works with a symbolic version of the planets, stars and heavenly bodies surrounding Planet Earth. Its purpose is to offer the clarity and guidance we need to feel more in control of our daily lives. The aim of modern-day astrology is to empower people and make them more aware of their own energies, qualities, strengths and weaknesses. Astrology is like a language that uses symbols rather than words. It looks strange and complicated until you learn to read and speak it!
Your birth chart is like a Map, pointing the way to your own unique personal destiny.
Your birth chart reveals your true potential. Your talents and abilities, how to develop them and how best to use them.
From romantic to marriage to business or platonic relationships, the position of Venus in your birth chart can help you to find the perfect balance with your chosen partners.
Your birth chart can explain why you feel comfortable and at ease with some people or awkward and nervous with others.
Your birth chart can help to identify and guide you towards your ideal career, vocation or lifestyle.
The positions of Venus, Jupiter and Pluto in your birth chart can show you how to attract material abundance into your life.
Your birth chart can introduce you to your most valuable resources – the talents and abilities you were born with. It can help you to understand how to have more control in material matters.
The Moon in your birth chart explains how you are affected by powerful family influences and ancestral inheritance. It also shows what kind of home is ideal for you.
Your birth chart can suggest where and when you might be subject to situations which undermine your overall health and wellbeing.
There is far more to a birth chart than the zodiac sign of your birth month. But it is a good place to begin exploring the fascinating subject of astrology. You can learn a lot from reading about your own sun sign and its ruling planet. And you will understand more about what makes your loved (or ex-loved!) ones tick.
Astrology is a life-long commitment for me. It never bores me and always intrigues me. It surprises and delights me on a daily basis. And I imagine I will carry on learning about it for life times to come!
I suppose I was born an astrologer as I have always been interested in people, their lives and loves, hopes and dreams, sorrows and joys. I think growing up in the Arabian desert under those amazing night skies crammed with stars may also have had something to do with it!
I believe that when you ask for a reading you are really asking your Wise Self to guide you, through the mind and mouth of the person who is reading for you. Your Inner Guide does not interfere with your free will but tries to show you choices that are in your best interests.
1986-1992 I attended regular classes held by the Faculty of Astrological Studies, where I learned the mystical art of how to read a horoscope. The course also taught me about chart calculation and basic astronomy as well as the history & psychology of astrology.
1991-2000 I felt I needed further training in client care and I became a qualified practitioner of aromatherapy, reflexology and therapeutic massage. This helped me to develop listening & observational skills and to take a more holistic approach to my work.
I do not tell fortunes or give psychic readings. My aim is to pass on to you the fascinating feedback and important information provided by your Birth Chart. I focus on your free will choices and potential for positive manifestation. I also alert you to the beneficial and/or challenging planetary influences around you and ahead of you.
Your life experiences can then be used to develop coping strategies and creative solutions as you begin to take conscious control of your own destiny.
My aim is to make my clients feel that I am in a partnership with them as we work together to find explanations, answers and solutions for them. I probably know more about astrology than they do, but they certainly know more about their lives than I do! Our combined experience is what really counts.
I may not always be able to deliver the Yes or No answer that my client is looking for, but I can bring the clarity and perspective which will help them take decisions, and the confirmation that brings confidence and courage.
People tend to visit an astrologer when they are seeking help in tough times and are willing to place their trust in someone who sounds like they understand.
An ethical astrologer will never take advantage of this vulnerability. They will acknowledge the anxiety, empathise with the problem, and then work to support their client. They may or may not be able to offer instant solutions, but they can usually point to a light at the end of the tunnel.
It is the responsibility of any astrologer to respect their client’s privacy and free will, to honour their right to determine their own destiny. My job is to offer insight, perspective, advice and guidance based on my knowledge of astrology. I cannot tell my clients what to do with their lives, I can only encourage them to be honest and clear about what they really want to happen. It is not my job to direct their decisions, although I might give warning if it seems to me that they are planning to act against their best interests.
