Prior to my astrological life, I was an undergraduate and postgraduate at the London School of Economics and Political Science, in receipt of a scholarship from the Social Science Research Council. I subsequently undertook independent research into classical, Arabic and mediaeval astrological knowledge/practice, whilst pursuing a career as a freelance astrological consultant/columnist for UK and European publications. I graduated with Diplomas from the Faculty of Astrological Studies (D F Astrol S), and the Qualifying Horary Practitioner (QHP). In 2001 I inherited the QHP from Olivia Barclay and continue to enjoy teaching and mentoring students worldwide. In 2007 I was assisted by a grant from the Urania Trust for writing Horary Astrology Re-Examined: The Possibility or Impossibility of the Matter Propounded, published in 2009 by Wessex Astrologer. A further grant was awarded in 2014 for studying an MA in History at Exeter University, where I graduated with distinction in 2016. I am currently a PhD student in receipt of a doctoral studentship from the Wellcome Trust, supervised by Professor Jonathan Barry and Dr Peter Elmer. My thesis is entitled: ‘Astrology is higher and nobler than medicine and every physician should be an astrologer’: The Astrological Figure and the ‘Prognostical part of Physick’ c. 1580-1700.
At The Wessex Astrologer we take great pride in the quality and diversity of the books we publish and the fact that we are the European distributors for the wonderful magazine that is The Mountain Astrologer. Read More
