Can you share a transformative moment from your own life when astrology played a significant role, shaping your understanding of yourself and your path? How did this experience influence your approach to helping others through astrology?
When I first consulted an astrologer in 2007 and realized I was barely living. That my marriage was dead and that I needed to move. A year later I was back living in Ireland, (from Wales) starting a new life in West Cork and became far more creative.
Astrology helped me unlock my creativity then and I joined several choirs and became a photographer.
I now am absolutely passionate about helping people leave relationships that no longer support them, I am even more passionate about helping clients live more creative lives with the help of astrology, often through relocating
Astrocartography is a fascinating aspect of your work. Could you explain how geographical locations can impact an individual’s astrological profile? Can you share a compelling case where a client’s life changed significantly due to a relocation based on astrocartography insights?
Relocating through astrocartography is one of the most empowering things an individual can do to immediately transform their lives.
We are born where we are born but moving somewhere where say our Venus line is strong can make us feel more valued and enhance our creativity.
Moving to a Mercury line can enhance communication.
Moving to a Moon line can lead to a deeper sense of home.
Our planets change houses in a new location so a different area of our lives will be enhanced
One of my clients Francesca moved from New York where she felt dull and lifeless and was in a corporate job she hated to Milan Italy where she retrained as a homeopath and started singing and acting classes. Her Venus moved into her fifth house of creativity there. Her Moon is now in her fourth house of home representing she feels totally nourished and supported there.
What type of services do you offer?

In your writing, you aim to help clients realize their full potential through astrology. What unique perspectives or insights do you believe astrology provides in guiding individuals toward their fullest expression of self?
Astrology sees who we really are, not who our parents wanted us to be or the environment we grew up in which often shapes us. Knowing our natal chart and what we are truly here in this lifetime to learn and experience is one of the most empowering gifts I can give a client. The current transits we go through, which is where the planets are now and what they are triggering in our natal chart for healing and growth is usually when someone comes first to an astrologer. I also help people break unhelpful patterns and help them live a more responsive rather than a reactive life.
Your passion for helping clients is evident. Can you share a particularly rewarding or challenging client experience where astrology played a crucial role in helping them navigate a specific life situation or decision?
I have helped several clients navigate challenging situations. I have helped people relocate and start all over again after a traumatic divorce and helped that client see that the divorce in fact freed them for a life that was not in alignment with who they really were. I have recently helped a client navigate the death of a parent when she was overseas and helped her see that the parents death, though traumatic, was in fact deeply freeing for both of them and that she and her adult children were now free to travel and fully explore life. This client is now finally writing her book after years of waiting.
Astrology can be a lifelong journey of learning. What recent developments or discoveries in the field have excited you the most, and how do you incorporate new insights into your practice to enhance the support you provide to your clients?
We are always discovering new planets. Eris being the most new.
Astrology is also always about planetary cycles and in particular I am looking forward to when Pluto moves into Aquarius on 22nd January where apart from a brief return back into Capricorn for a few weeks later in the year, it spends the next twenty years. So we can expect radical change. Pioneering technology as yet un dreamt of. I also heartily welcome the new wave of young astrologers and their deep insights. I welcome how Instagram is helping spread the word of astrology.
