I am an astrologer and diviner, studying cosmology and divination
at the Univeristy of Kent, where I am doing postgraduate research
on divination for modern times.
In 1983, I co-founded the Company
of Astrologers, a London based teaching body, and was its director
until 1999. I continue to teach regularly at the Company.
I have always written astrology columns for the popular market
and currently I am the astrologer at Woman magazine and Harper's
Bazaar, Japan. In Japan, the Media Cosmics mobile site carries popular
astrology forecasts and Tarot readings and its content also appears
regularly on yahoo.
I am particualrly interested in developing new formats for astrology
in the media. I was the Media Medium for Media
Guardian Online where I looked at media companies and personalities
from an astrological perspective, and I also analysed company horoscopes
using business astrology for my Company Futures column in The
Business Observer. I have talked on business astrology
to the Institute of Directors, and my study CD rom on The Financial
Winter with Jack Kenny (March 2008) accurately described and dated
the current economic climate.
I work for PR companies to promote specific products and have done
thousands of 'instant' horoscope and tarot readings for festivals
and events such as the Brit Awards.
I am interested in psychoanalytic thought and I am an associate
member of the Philadelphia
Association, a psychoanalytic training organisation. I have
also studied Jung and the wider Jungian movement and have undertaken
research into his intense engagement with paranormal phenomena and
the occult, especially astrology, where his thought has had considerable
influence. My book 'Jung and Astrology',
written for astrologers, deals extensively with these themes. My
'Introducing Jung' was the first new book in the
highly successful Icon cartoon series, and I gave a platform presentation
on Jung, and wrote the programme notes, for Christopher Hampton's
play "The Talking Cure" at the National Theatre.
