About Me…

 

IMG_1297

Hi there,

We haven’t met, so here’s a bit about me…

I live on the Sunshine Coast in South Eastern Queensland, Australia with my long suffering Scorpio hubby, my (Aries) teenage daughter, and a cocker spaniel who specializes in doing flop dog impersonations.

I’m an astrologer and a writer – but you’ve probably already gathered that because you’re reading this blog.

I haven’t always been an astrologer. An Economist and Political Scientist (by degree), I’ve spent most of the last 30 years in Banking and IT. I still juggle a full-time corporate gig with domestic divadom, astrology blogging and fiction writing.

No crystal balls here…

Astrology isn’t some magic wand that will magically spirit all your problems away, land you the partner of your dreams, the ideal job, and an overflowing bank account. Nor does it provide a set of excuses as to why you haven’t made that first million at 30 and why you still need to lose 20kgs (or is that just me?). What it does do is give you tools – tools that will help you understand your motivations, your needs and your energies. You choose what you do with that knowledge.

Do It Yourself

I’m dedicated to making astrology accessible to everybody and relevant to everyday life. I’m here to take the mystery and the woo woo out, and break complex concepts down into something much simpler to understand.

My brand of astrology is DIY astrology- the type that will help you to be the best version of yourself that you can be. Or not. That’s up to you. Think of it like a home renovation, but it’s your life – and we use the stars. It’s all about realising and uncovering the potential within – or doing the self-improvement equivalent of slapping on a coat of paint or buying some new cushions and throw-rugs.

What I’m not here to do is take the work out of it for you. I’ll give you the tools and some guidance to help you learn it yourself – not from a textbook, but from the heart. I’ll also give you some astro weather forecasts to help you improve your good day ratio. It’s up to you what you do with that. Just remember – the planets and the stars don’t make things happen, but they provide an environment against which life plays out. It’s up to you whether you take an umbrella to protect yourself from the storm or hold your face to the rain and dry out later. Your stars. Your life. Your call.
