Avian Resurrection

Avian Resurrection, Part 22

Marvin woke up from a good night’s sleep and just knew it was going to be a great day. He stretched and yawned and flexed his feet, feeling ridiculously happy about the day ahead of him. It was the first time in a long time he had felt this happy and relaxed about the day ahead. Leaping out of bed, he again stretched and then did as many push ups as he could—he didn’t think twenty five was too bad for someone who had put more energy into avoiding gym class than in actually attending. Push ups done, he then […]

Saturn in Capricorn: The Hard Reign

A beautiful school in Kolkata Saturn will soon be in Capricorn for the next couple of years and everyone’s talking out it. OK, the astrologers are talking about it. It’s big shift all right and usually some sort of symbolism makes its way to the front pages of the international newspapers when Saturn changes signs.  Remember “Je suis Charlie?” just as Saturn lurched back and forth over the cusp of Scorpio and Sagittarius at the end of 2014? Saturn in Sagittarius began with our need to speak our Truth and it will end with a lot of us wondering what […]

Jupiter in Scorpio Pupils (like Royal Baby 3!)

We’ve just had new of a new Royal baby! Born 23 April 2018 at 11:01 am in London. Here’s a little but about Jupiter in Scorpio learners originally published in Kindred Spirit: Astrology in Education for New Year 7s Pupils born between 1 September 2005 and 31 August 2006 will be gearing up to start secondary school in September. For pupils leaving their familiar primary school, starting secondary school can be a bit of a shock to the system.

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 Research

End of Season for Cherry Picking

Astrology Research that engages sceptics is very rare. If it does exist, then Astrologers are dismissed by their critics for their lack of precision, non-replicable results and minuscule databases. I wanted to address these criticisms and show other astrologers how they can too. This first hand version of the events leading up to publication of my research on adolescent behaviour and lunar phases appeared in the Autumn equinox 2017 edition of The Career Astrologer published by The Organization for Professional Astrologers and is posted here with grateful permission. My research into adolescent behaviour and lunar phases first made the astrology headlines with […]

All Change in the House of Windsor?

With things heating up with the Prince Andrew scandal, I thought it might be time for a little update on this article. Because, wouldn’t you know it, Prince Andrew has his natal Moon opposite to Algol and the Sun is about to transit it! Thank you to Facebook friends for pointing this out! I had been steadfastly ignoring Andrew for years, not really considering him a key player in the Royal Family once William started having children. I’ve just (13 January) re-read this article and check out what I’ve written about Meghan and Harry! Scroll down to the last few […]

Jonathan Cainer surrounded by the colour that defined him

Tribute to Jonathan Cainer

I can’t believe it’s been two years since the death of Jonathan Cainer on 2 May 2016. Many astrologers — as well as many fans and admirers — were affected by his passing. As my own children grew up with his and as he played such a huge role in shaping my life, I still find it very difficult to talk about him. But Jon still drops in for a visit every now and again. He still tells me I worry far more than I should. I get the idea he might be impressed with what I’m doing. As the […]
