Margaret Gray and Armand Diaz interviewed Alex Trenoweth for their show “Relationships and Astrology“. They discuss the challenges of educating children and how astrology can help. Armand explains why “Growing Pains” is a model astrology book that anyone can access.
The trio discuss the importance of the relationships between teachers and their pupils. Alex discloses why the odds are stacked against this possibility. However, she also reveals how astrology can be enormously beneficial. She also points out how Saturn, the planet normally associated with difficulties, becomes the guiding light for parents and teachers.
As a professional schoolteacher as well as an astrologer, Alex also explains how working with Jupiter and Saturn can help streamline the work of a teacher. Jupiter and Saturn (not sign signs) help create a signature for each year group. This allows teachers to understand the learning needs of their pupils and to create lessons that are suitable for their pupils.
Despite this potential, Alex indicates she still struggles with astrology’s reputation. Sadly, there is a potential threat of losing her job if parents misunderstand her intentions. This is despite the fact she makes more predictions as a teacher and can do greater harm to the future of a child than anything she could say as an astrologer.
Alex also discusses why 13 year olds are the most difficult age group to teach and how astrology can help adults to understand them. Bringing in research of neurology and the developing adolescent brain, she reveals why more resources should be given to the younger adolescents.
Alex also raises grave concerns about the state of the educational system. With most teachers entering the teaching profession fresh out of university, many teachers are young and inexperienced. Unfortunately, nearly 50% of teachers leave the profession within the first five years of qualifying. This means teachers leave the profession before they get good at it. Alex reveals how astrology has kept her in the profession for over 30 years.
For parents, understanding family dynamics are enormously challenging. These too can be better understood with astrology. Alex explains her particular astrological method of working ethically with families and children. She often reminds parents that they also have Saturn’s background script running through their minds. Which of course affects how they raise their children.
With a hectic writing and travelling schedule, Alex still teaches and sees astrology clients. Her main focus is astrology and education, relationships and astrology, family dynamics and helping parents (and others) understand the children they love.
