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 […]

Astrology for Millennials suddenly became a big thing in the past few years! But what does it take to become a qualified astrologer?

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.

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, […]

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 […]
