Astrology for teachers

Astrology for Teachers

So much has changed since I first wrote this article (based on my research in “Growing Pains”) way back in 2015 that I had actually forgotten I’ve never posted it on my website! In all that time–even with the article published on Astrodienst–there has been nothing but the chirp of crickets for Astrology in Education in the media. “Astrology for Teachers” was intended to help busy teachers organise themselves and streamline their workload as well as address some of the issues that are relevant for adolescents. I had hoped for bigger things for this article. But it does seem to […]

Astrology and Parents

Astrology for Parents

In 2020, it was my very great pleasure to write a column on Astrology and Children for the Organisation for Professional Astrologers (OPA). Astrology for Parents is the second instalment. It quickly became apparent to me that addressing the pitfalls of working with children by using astrology needed to be addressed. This area in astrology is unchartered and opinions around the ethics of reading charts for children vary. My opinion is that unless the astrologer has adequate qualifications and experience in working with children (beyond parenting) then it is safer to not offer this kind of service. And no astrologer, […]

Safeguarding and child protection in Astrology

Safeguarding and Child Protection in Astrology

This article was originally published in the Organization for Professional Astrology magazine, The Career Astrologer in March 2020. It is the first part of a four part series. Safeguarding and Child Protection guidelines are pretty much universal in agreement. These guidelines aim to do exactly as they say. Adults who work directly with children receive special training that enables them to protect the children in their care. The training also protects the adult from unwittingly putting themselves in compromised positions. In schools, this training is regarded to be so important that it is updated at the start of every term. […]

Childhood Education: A study by a teacher and astrologer

This article on astrology and education originally appeared in Dell Horoscope, the world’s leading astrology magazine. My new article “When a Flower Speaks” appears in the May/June 2018 issue. Dismissed for their lack of precision, non-replicable results and miniscule databases, modern day astrologers are often ridiculed by their skeptics. Can astrologers step up to the scientific plate or will they go down with the pseudoscience ship? In my role as a schoolteacher, the bias against being an astrologer was so great that I was actually threatened with dismissal should any parent complain about my interests in the subject. As I […]

great reads

Great Reads!

I’ve been quieter than usual this summer as I recover from my father’s death. Grief is an odd thing I’ve discovered and just when I think I’m getting better, I get my ass kicked. But now it’s back to school time, I’m pushing myself to be productive. I need to be distracted. Fortunately for me, I’ve been able to dive into some great reads. Quick Commercial Break! How could even think about starting the school year without knowing where Jupiter is this year? Here’s a quick guide to help you understand your child’s or your classroom’s learning style. If you […]

Daddy's Girl

If I’m Not Daddy’s Girl Then Who the Fuck Am I?

My father died a few days ago and I’m a little more swear-y than usual. Sorry. Over the past few days, I’ve received a lot of messages, phone calls and words of comfort. I’m deeply grateful and I will respond to all of them so forgive this blanket response to your questions and queries. My patience is very thin and I have this deep anger thing going on that I haven’t quite worked out. I’m also bursting into really painful bouts of tearfulness that T-bones me like a juggernaut. And today I realised I just don’t know who I am […]

How Are Astrologers Perceived by Schoolchildren?

Astrology and Schoolchildren? Well, what does the generation who doesn’t know life without the internet think about astrology? As it happens, I recently had an opportunity to check this out when I was contacted by a fellow teacher and invited, as an astrologer, to speak to her Religious Education (RE) students. The Internation Society of Astrological Research (ISAR) published the outcome in their fab magazine and granted me permission to re-publish here. By the way, ISAR will be publishing an extract from my new book “Mirror Mirror: The Astrology of Famous People and the Actors Who Have Portrayed Them”. Just […]

Astrological Dreamwork: The Explosion

Ever have a dream that made you say “WTF?”? Last night I had a doozy! If you’ve had a crazy dream you’d like interpreted, it just so happens I have a dream interpretation service. For now though, indulge me in reading about my dream. We (I was with another astrologer) were in Sedona watching the sky because there were these amazing storm systems overhead. We found ourselves standing in front of this huge rock formation that looked like a huge ‘O’. Then in the middle of the O, there was this huge explosion building up and I was filming it […]

adolescent astrology reports

Adolescent Astrology Reports

Adolescent Astrology Reports are contactless reports that are ideal for parents with teenage children. They are 16-19 pages long, beautifully illustrated and are a fraction of the cost of a consultation (but you can book a Zoom consultation here). A little back story A few years ago, in the good old days, I was a speaker at the United Astrology Conference (UAC). On a break, I bumped into my good Australian friends Julia Simas and Steph Johnson. Steph the Solar Fire Goddess asked me if I would like to write the text to generate a special computer-generated report for adolescents. […]

Buy me a coffee?

Is it time to buy me a coffee? Ever since my book “Growing Pains” came out in 2013, I have been devoting myself to showing parents and teachers how they can use astrology to help their children. If you’ve ever wondered how you can help, the buy me a coffee site has just made things a lot easier. How you can make a difference Saturn in Aquarius has made us hyper aware of the inequities in the world. This hurts us in many different ways but as a teacher, I know that there are children who do not have what […]
