Not the Astrology Column

I hope you enjoy reading the articles which are listed on this page.

Before you begin to meander your way through them - and do add more comments/email me, since I always like to hear from my readers! -  I’d like to start you off with the rather interesting tale of how a dismissive, ill-informed maligner of the great and ancient art of astrology ( ME! ) turned into a devoted and admiring practitioner. Life sure is full of surprises!

  1. “…This is enormously comforting to those of us who cannot bear the idea that the turmoils and struggles of this life are capricious and pointless.”

    Or, as my granny used to say, “What’s for you won’t go by you”.

    Hi Susan – your grasp of granny’s wisdom is truly breathtaking!! Next coffee’s on you….

  2. Astrology is indeed a wonderous tool for understanding yourself the world and those around you. Not having it would be like taking colour out of life – and how much one would miss the blue of the sky or my childrens eyes for instance. I feel lucky to have it in my life. Cheers Ms W to you for helping me on my journey in understanding it. CarolexXx

    My life as an astrology teacher would have missed a big splash of colour had you never turned up in my classes! Thanks for contributing so much enthusiasm and brightness. Anne x

  3. Such a joy to access your website amidst this universe that at times can seem such a sceptical place Have just been given my first computer and decided I want to take this writing lark more seriously Coincidence? I prefer serendpity, of course. Very inspiring and lots of excellent contacts as an antidote to the necessary isolation (I have also just managed to get broadbanded with ma son’s help!) Thanks again for your invaluable guidance in your previous incarnation as an Astrologer love Cathy Welsh

    Hi Cathy! So good to have feedback like this at the outset of my new adventure. Thank you. Anne x

    Hi Anne, I briefly met you today in CCH, as I presented myself to your premises, to let you know who i was and that i would be trading as from next week as a Reiki/Indian Head Massage therapist. Even although i know i am a spirit having a physical experience i sometimes struggle,I feel intensely. Reading your article has helped me today about the struggles we do have sometimes. I believe people are put on our path for a reason, season or a lifetime. I am glad i met you today, i felt very calm in your presence. It helped to reassure myself of the work i am here to do.

    Thank you
    warm regards
    Caroline Martin

    Caroline, thank you for your warm, kind words. I wish you every success in your new venture. Anne

  5. LOVE your site, will visit again :) Submitted this post to Google News Reader.

  6. from R.B. by email:
    I really love reading your blog. Excellent. Keep up the great work!

    Thanks R.B!

  7. Dear Anne,

    Thank you for reminding us of the grace and wisdom living deep within our soul.

    Thanks, Lauren. Good to hear from you! Anne

  8. Wonderful story…

    I was “introduced” to astrology by a chap in college who was studying it. I got into a heated argument with him–being at that time unbalanced toward the scientific side of life–and he threw me into a wall. Maybe the concussion worked, though it took three more years for me to begin exploring the art…

    Forty years later and I’m finally hitting my stride–Whoo-Hoo!!!

    I love your story too! Why do so many of us only learn the hard way?! I had Uranus going over the IC when I began my studies…..Anne
