Astrology               

  • What is Astrology?

The study of the stars and how they effect the earth, human life and destiny. Every country, every illness, every object has its own fate and this is effected by the stars. Astrology is has many branches; prediction, psychoanalysis, weather forecasting, karmic astrology, health astrology to name but few. Astrology is not superstition neither is it   science, it is a vast metaphysical knowledge with its own  rules measurements and laws.

  • What is my Sign?

Correctly a 30 degree segment of the Zodiac. Each is named after one twelve of the constellations. It would be nice if the sky could be divided up into equal portions this way with one of the twelve signs in each, it is not that simple. More can be read from works by Allen, R. H. (Star Names, their Lore and Meaning. New York 1963) and Cyril Fagan (Zodiacs, Old and New. London, 1951). Your birth sign is according to the date on which you were born;

 

ARIES March 21-April 19. LIBRA Sept 22-Oct 21
TAURUS April 20-May 20. SCORPIO Oct 22-Nov 20
GEMINI May 21-June 20. SAGITTARIUS Nov 21-Dec 20
CANCER June 21-July 22 CAPRICORN Dec 21-Jan 19
LEO July 23-Aug 22 AQUARIUS Jan 20-Feb 18.
VIRGO Aug 23-Sept 21 PISCES Feb 19-March 20

  • I do not know my time of birth, is this important?

An accurate time of birth is crucial to an accurate natal (radix or birth) chart. An hour will usually make a big change in a chart, five or ten minutes out can often mean the difference between true or incorrect information being drawn from it. If you are not sure of your time I can perform a rectification of your birth chart.

  • what is rectification?

Rectifying your birth chart is looking at important events in your life and fine tuning your chart to give an accurate time of birth if it is not already known. Prediction in reverse if you like. If you accept that everything that happens to you can be found on your birth chart, then it follows that if you know the events and when they happened your chart can be corrected in time until everything clicks into place.

back to top

  • what do I need to tell you to calculate my actual time of birth?

I need major events, accidents, the loss of those close to you, childbirth, that sort of thing. Also the date on which these events took place.

  • what is the difference between a Marriage chart and a Soul mate chart?

In this case nothing, it is a personal view. I will describe the person who will make a great impact on your life, it is your choice to marry and make it a legal partnership.

  • the price seems high, can I get it cheaper?
  • the price seems low, how can you do as you say for the money?

The prices shown will be what I feel is a fair and honest price to pay for what you receive. I can not charge simply by the hour, that would be complex and too expensive for many. It is my policy to give everyone the opportunity to have access to quality astrology at reasonable cost.

All my work is done on an individual basis, I do not use computerized reports that are available off the shelf in the astrology world. If you want these then I must advise to look elsewhere. 

I have many clients around the world, from those on welfare benefits to high power back room advisors. A few can afford to pay a much higher sum than is usual, thus can occasionally request immediate attention.  Some find the minimum fee difficult, but I am not able to work for nothing, nor do I demand extortionate fees in return for a page of waffle. I try to be fair and the great number of clients that keep writing year after year are a testament to this. I have reprinted extracts from some of their letters for you to read.

  • What is my ascendant?

The sign rising above the Eastern horizon at your moment of birth ( e.g. 9 degrees of Leo rising). As it changes every four minutes it is vitally important to have correct time of birth.

back to top

  • what is my ruling planet?

Each sign is linked to a planet, or planets, and is said to Rule or have Lordship over the sign. There has been some difference in opinion here but my experience shows the following rulers, major first and minor;

Aries Mars Libra Venus
Taurus Venus Scorpio Pluto, Mars
Gemini Mercury Sagittarius Jupiter
Cancer Moon Capricorn Saturn
Leo Sun Aquarius Uranus, Saturn
Virgo Mercury Pisces Neptune, Jupiter

It would be nice and neat if there were 12 planets for 12 signs, but life is never so simple.

back to top

  • what are houses or Mansions?

The twelve divisions of the natal or birth chart. Starting at the Ascendant going anti clockwise, each house has it’s own character, e.g. the eighth house is the house of death, or the occult house. An astrologer can analyse the houses, the signs and planets within each, to reveal an unlimited amount of detail about the person, this is how astrology is done. The junction of the signs are known as Cusps. 

back to top

  • what is Synastry?

Comparing two charts with one another to show compatibility, and how any relationship between the two people will evolve.

back to top

  • how can I learn more about astrology?

  There are many good books and courses available to those with the willingness to learn but it is my view that it takes more than these to make a real astrologer. There has to be a degree of talent or natural ability to build on, or an genuine  inner desire. If you have this and need advice on how to progress I will be pleased to help.

  • Is a Sesquiquadrate two couples out for a good time?

No. It is an angle of 135 degrees, this aspect between planets is unfortunate. See Aspects.

back to top

  • What’s the Dragon’s Head/Tail?

The Dragon’s Head, another name for the North Node of the Moon, a point at which the Moon crosses the ecliptic into the north latitude, showing good things, depending on it’s position in the chart.

Dragon’s Tail, the South Node, not usually good, indicating difficulties.

back to top

  • What’s the Part of Fortune?

Not a planet but a point which is the result of a bit of astrological maths (praise be to the PC) and can show good luck or otherwise depending on it’s placement.

  • What is an Aspect?

An angle between two points of the chart, planets, houses, signs. There are 360 degrees in the chart, a 120 degree aspect is a trine, and usually good. A 90 degree aspect is a Square, usually not good. They are important so I will list them here, as described by Fred Getting’s [Dictionary of Astrology-1985];

 

ASPECT DEGREE GENERAL MEANING
Opposition 180 Tension
Trine

120

Expansion
Square 90 Difficult, but energizing
Conjunction 0 Intensifies planets involved
Quincunx 150 Strain
Sequiquadrate 135 Difficult, less then square
Semi-square 45 Difficult
Sextile 60 Expansive, weaker than Trine
Semi-sextile 30 Slight strain
Bi-quintile 144 Strengthening?
Quintile 72 Strengthening?

  • What is a Transit ?

Planets passing over other planets or points in the chart, used to forecast how the life of the person will develop.

  • Explain Horary

Hour, time. Used to find answers to questions asked at a particular moment in time.

back to top

  • What is a Cusp

The junction between houses, Cuspal indicates not fully one or the other.

  • What is an Ephemeris used for?

Astrological ephemeris are required to place the planets in their respective positions in the chart. Now this can be done using computers ( praise be to the PC), what once took hours can now be done in seconds, leaving the astrologer to do what he or she should be doing; analysis, synthesis.

  • Nadir?

Six o’clock on the chart. Opposite the Zenith, at the top.

  • Natal chart / Radix?

A birth chart, a representation of the heavens drawn up for the time of birth. Sometimes known as a radix or Horoscope.

Soulmates

  • What does the reading actually show?
  • Your next serious chance of love, for many it shows a soul mate. And that’s why you are here at this present time, nothing is really chance or coincidence, your inner soul guides you toward me. But for some it just shows their next future husband or someone with whom there will be a serious liaison or affair. This may not be a soul mate in the this sense of the word but it will be a very deep and possibly permanent involvement.

    Back

  • Does it really work?
  • Yes the reading was well researched, and I’ve been doing it for many years now, I get lots of feed back, testimonials, even wedding invitations and gifts. An astonishing number even write back straight away and say “you are describing the man I’m currently gong out with and who I love dearly…”

    Back

     

  • What if you find nothing in my chart? what if my future is like my past, a lonely space devoid of love?
  • It is true that not everyone marries. But most people have the chance of an all powerful love at some time in their lives. I have clients who have lived shadowy lives as mistresses for years and perhaps always will. I have others who have harboured a love so secret and sacred for someone that they cannot even disclose it to that person. The soul mate chart shows that chance of an all consuming love even if you ever only have one chance of a love that’s imperfect but deep, it will show. And you’ll know you’re not alone.

    Back

     

  • But suppose I am that one person who is alone, for always? Do I get my money back?
  • My, what a pessimist you are! Yes, no work, no fee. In very rare cases the chart has what is called an affliction, an unfortunate planet aspecting the marriage house. When there is only one affliction, the person will still encounter love at some stage, when there are two or three the person may travel throughout their lives lonely without a partner.  In which case I explain the particular affliction on your chart, and, if I can, how to overcome it. 

      For example a shy person may know his chronic shyness has prevented him meeting girls, but only his chart will show him the pattern’s psychology that has lead up to it, and how to remove that blackness. Charts and destiny can always be worked on and it helps, but this is really going into the sphere of other reading now. Lets stick with the topic – soul mate charts – for the moment, Ok?

    Back

     

  • What if my soul mate isn’t destined to come into my life for another ten years?
  • Spiritually all things are linked I find that if you are drawn towards this site, it is often because the time is getting close to when you will meet your true soul mate. Most people who write do find they are due to meet their soul mate or partner in the fairly near future.

    Back

     

  • I’m married, unhappily so. Is this reading only for the free and single?
  • No this reading is for you. It is for all those whatever the age status or sexual persuasion, who a want an insight to their future love and what fate has in store.

    Back

     

  • I am sixty eight, a widow, am I too old for this reading? come on, be truthful.
  • Your never too old for love, our feelings remain the same, our spirit has the same hunger in age as in youth, you’re never too old for a soul mate chart. Never to old to re-marry.

    Back

     

  • I have already met someone I think is my soul mate, should I have this reading?
  • This reading will describe your soul mate so vividly and carefully that if it is him you’ll recognise him, so it could give you confirmation of you own inner feelings before you decide. Have a look at my Synastry reading, it might be the reading for you.

    Back

     

  • You say it can help me find my soul mate, how?
  • The first step in finding anything is in having you description, then you know what your looking for. Astrology works on many levels. Astrology is not magic, it is said that our subconscious mind engineers our own destiny, I believe that deep down we all know who our Soul Mate is. We know our own future in fact, and the chart just reflects this. 

       It is like bringing a subconscious knowledge to the surface, and that in itself acts like a catalyst so that things can happen. The reading can work on different stages. Once you know where your going it take you a step nearer to your destination. Without it you may wander and drift off course and fate will take longer. 

       If the reading describes someone you already know, I can then, if you wish in subsequent readings (not in the soul mate chart itself), work with you, like a mentor to help and guide the relationship off the rocks, if it’s on the rocks, or stuck or otherwise in difficulty. Astrology can give ongoing support in love and all matters of the heart.

    Back

  • I’m gay, can I still have this reading?
  • Yes, I have some considerable success with gay clients, but do remind me that you are gay when you write or email, as it makes a difference to some chart aspects.

    Back

  • I don’t want anyone to know I’m having this reading, can you guarantee discretion?
  • Yes. I am myself a very private person, I have every respect for other people privacy, the reading is sent in a plain envelope and no follow-up correspondence or advertising is ever sent unsolicited. Your personal details go no further.

    Back

  • How do I pay?
  • You can use the secure Online payment page, send a cheque or money order, see How to Order for more info.

  • I am seeing someone, how can I tell if this is my true soulmate?
  • You can request a Synastry, to compare two charts to see if they are destined to be together.

    Karma

    • what is Karma?

    Karma, put simply, is cause and effect, or action and reaction. The influence of past over present and how actions in a past life, predetermined the conditions in your present life and character. Each life we live shapes our character and our future destiny in a way we seem to have little control over but are entangled with inescapably

    Back

    • how can a previous life help me in this one?

    If you can understand your karma and fate and the lessons that life is teaching you. Then you can begin to work with that karma to improve and change your present life if you want to. Good things can happen to you. Understanding alone is sometimes enough to bring a profound yet subtle change. At other times you have to work on the Karma before change is possible.

    • why do you need my birth date and time?

    This is Karmic astrology and your birth time is needed to draw up an accurate chart. If it is not known see rectification

    • I’m having a hard time with relationships, I always end up with the same type of person, can Karma help me understand this?

    Yes. Patterns from past lives often repeat in this life.
