Astrology & the Renaissance

Originally published in “Astrology Quarterly”, Autumn 2010 (Vol 79 No. 4) For the sake of simplicity, it would be tempting to say that astrology in the Renaissance begins with Petrarch (1304 – 1374), and ends with Shakespeare (1564 – 1616). Petrarch, “the first man of the Renaissance,”[1] was no fan of astrology and railed against its fatalistic leanings. “Leave free the paths of truth and life … these globes of fire cannot be guides for us … Illuminated by these rays, we have no need of these swindling astrologers and lying prophets who empty the coffers of their credulous followers […]

Pupils born between 1 September 2004 and 31 August 2005 will be gearing up to start secondary school in September. Studies show that pupils who are new to secondary school experience a dip in academic performance.

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 […]

20 Ways Teaching Primary School is different to Teaching Secondary School

Teaching primary school was a HUGE surprise for this secondary school teacher. Not only did I never intend on teaching younger children, I discovered primary school and secondary school are two completely different  skill bases. “Duh Alex,” I hear my teacher friends say, “Did you expect teaching primary school to be the same as teaching secondary school?”. Well no I didn’t but I really wasn’t expecting so many differences.  I’m in a unique position: teachers tend to teach primary school OR secondary school. And, as a devoted secondary school teacher up until a few weeks ago, I feel like the […]
