Interview with Mj Patterson

Alex Trenoweth

In this interview with Alex Trenoweth for “The Astrology Show” on CKDU radio, Halifax Astrologer and ISAR Global Director (Canada) Mj Patterson discuss Alex’s life as an astrologer posing as a teacher, how she met Gopal Bhattacharjee (founder of the Institute of Vedic Culture in Kolkata India), what she thinks about the future of astrology and a few other surprises (like talking flowers and other mystical moments!). Opening question? “What’s a nice girl like you doing in a crazy job like this?”

Alex explains why she continues to teach despite a hectic travelling schedule and also talks about why it is so important for astrologers to work collaboratively.
