I’d classify myself as both an astrologer and psychic. I’ve done the study to interpret a birth chart alongside the other ways a chart can be used, which are surprisingly many! My interpretation style is intuitive whether the mode I am using is astrology, tarot, palmistry, etc. Astrology though has always been my “base” as it runs throughout other modalities of within the interpretations. The 12 signs of the zodiac are in the tarot, they are in the mounts of the palm of your hand (ever heard of your mount of Venus or mount of mars?). Probably because I studied astrology first it gave me a good basis for other learnings in the intuitive field and, as my own birth chart demonstrates, I am a psychic intuitive above all else and this is the easiest way I find to conduct my readings.
When did you realize you wanted to focus on astrology?
From a young age I was fascinated with the star signs. I learnt all I could about them through reading books and later taking classes. This was back in the 1980’s which was before computers took over the job of drawing a horoscope chart. I am eternally grateful for astrology software as it cut my job back by many hours in doing the math’s for the planetary positions and aspects.
What’s your background and have you always worked as an astrologer?
My background is varied. I worked for over 20 years as a secretary/personal assistant in various countries around the world. During this time I was also giving readings both privately and at psychic fairs. In 2002 I set myself up to do astrology and psychic work full time via phone and then chat and have never looked back. I’ve trained in counselling, life coaching, reiki, massage, palmistry, healing, aromatherapy, crystals, alongside many other modalities. I have always integrated many aspects of my training into my work and don’t believe in a one approach fits all.
