How I Came to Do What I Do
Over twenty years ago, astrology, body energetics and tarot didn’t register on my radar, but all that changed at the time of my Saturn return (around age 28 for each person). Back then I was a book editor in a publishing house but a life crossroads led me to discover the psychological, symbolic & archetypal approach to life’s energies.
Major Career Change
I took up part-time tertiary teaching and freelanced as a professional editor while studying the language of the inner self, myth, spirituality, the energy body and all things soul-related. I wrote a research thesis on astrology and science, and presented at the 2006 16th FAA International Astrology Conference. I qualified as a professional astrologer 18 years ago and am as inspired as ever about each person’s unique life path.
Your Innate Potential
To me, when each person finds their inner north/south/east/west, they contribute their ‘unique energy package’ to the world. The way life cycles provoke and stimulate the discovery and growth of different layers and facets of each person’s individual self, keeps me in awe.
Every Piece of Your Whole Self
We all love the happy and successful parts of the self and soul, but what about the disenfranchised parts? These hold blocked creative life force; often symptomised yet innately essential. A person’s right to wellbeing, ‘a fair go’, a predominately non-toxic environment, choice and free will within holistic respect for world, planet, life and life cycles are key to my core values.
Your Life Makes the World
I hope to share about your core energies and cycles in a way that helps you open your own combination lock into being more fully and vitally you, more integrally on track, more in your life’s flow and happiness, and by definition a natural unfolding part of the world’s solution.
Experience & Qualifications
I’m a professionally qualified editor and teacher, plus also psyche-soul-astrologer and energy awareness practitioner. My qualifications include a BA Hons in literature and classics, a Cert IV in teaching, a Graduate Diploma in editing and publishing, a 4-year psychological astrology diploma, an archetypal tarot certificate, plus numerous forms of meditation, healing, energy awareness and soul insight, including from teachers and mentors handing down traditions. I continue ongoing study in these areas. I’m a member of the APA (Association of Professional Astrologers), the FAA (Federation of Australian Astrologers) and the AHHCA (Australian Holistic Healers and Counsellors Association).
My Approach to Your Reading
Am I a coach, a counsellor, a healer, a reader, an archetypal astrologer, a personal-growth motivator? Here’s my responses to those FAQs and more.
Forecasts and Writing
I’ve been writing forecasts since 2001 for various publications and the Radiant Living forecasts since 2005, trying to understand and share about the often indescribably complex cycles of these times, with a focus on personal effort to grow and commitment to fair relating to self, world, others. Over the years, I’ve also published a number of astrology articles, have guest lectured on various occasions and made some media appearances. In recent times, I’ve been posting updates on Facebook.
