I am a part-time evolutionary astrology who wishes to help people broaden their perspectives and find new understanding in life and events. In particular I like to unlock patterns of thought which have influenced our behaviour over many lives. Insight into our scripts helps us modify out sense of pain and feeling stuck, resulting in contentedness with where we are in life and what we have chosen to learn now. I have been mentored by modern astrologer Cynthia Thorburn of South Africa (2002, 2014) and more recently by evolutionary astrologer Maurice Fernandez of the United States of America (2013-2016).
