About John

I am a highly experienced practitioner and teacher of astrology, with thirty years of experience.  My approach is embodied and experiential, designed to generate deep insights into the archetypal dimension of astrological symbolism.  I will bring astrology alive for you in a way that is richly meaningful and relevant for your life.

Whether you are completely new to astrology, or have some experience of it already, the course will give you a thorough grounding in the subject, and give you the tools to read your birth chart effectively and coherently. During the course, we approach each area of study in depth and with a focus on enriching one’s own self-understanding. It will encourage your imagination to engage with symbolism in such a way that the transformational possibility of any astrological signature may be revealed.

Course Assistant: Tamsin St George
I have asked Tamsin St George to join me on this new venture given her experience and enjoyment of teaching beginners Astrology from inception to mentoring for student’s own client consultations. We are excited about the prospect of this new learning opportunity and for the joint support we can offer students having worked together for a number of years. Our joint teaching experience has been that instilling confidence in students with our approachable learning style is just as important to the absorption of technical information on this fascinating subject. We feel that the combination of our unique gifts makes for a powerful learning experience, with the primary learner focused on you and your own chart.

Course Testimonials
“John’s courses are packed with astrological information, presented very clearly and thoughtfully and backed up with excellent notes. Going beyond the necessary nuts and bolts of astrological knowledge, they delve into archetypal meanings and uncover how each profound symbol is reflected in our own birth charts and those of others. The opportunity to begin to play intuitively with the symbols is an integral part of the course. John’s teaching is sensitive, responsive and deep and I have found the experience rich, satisfying, touching and enlightening.” (Gillian)

“There are many levels to astrology and John teaches them all so well, he works from the basics into a soul journey we each need to understand in ourselves and help others to find.” (Erin)

“The combination of John and Tamsin’s intuitive understanding and their ability to share it enabled each of us to realise our competence and understanding of this amazing field of knowledge”. (Duncan)
