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?”
