I highly recommend this Australian classic astrology magazine brought to you from the dynamic astrologer and editor Kelly Surtees.

The Wellbeing Astrology magazine is published every year and is packed with features from astrologers around the world.

It has in-depth horoscopes for all the signs, many other interesting articles and beautiful images.

Kelly invited me to write a feature article What’s your oriental planet? For those of you who know me this particular topic is a great passion of mine.

Presentation in Vancouver

I have presented lectures on this topic before and spoke about this fascinating part of astrology in November 2014 in Vancouver, see details on that talk here.

Solar Arc Directions – The other forecasting method

Solar Arc Directions – The other forecasting method

Alison at SOTA13Recently I gave an exciting presentation at the State Of The Art (SOTA) astrology conference in Niagara Falls, NY, USA.

My two hour topic for 2013 was Solar Arc Directions – The other forecasting method.

I use four methods for my astrological forecasting and this is just one of them. They are great for pinpointing timing for events shown by the other forecasting methods of transits, secondary progressions and solar return charts.

This lecture covered: 

  • The history and development of solar arc directions
  • How to calculate solar arc directions
  • Interpretations and exercises (yes, the audience had to think!)
  • Sample charts.

Crossword Challenge

Oh, and everyone received a copy of my astrology themed crossword and I’m still waiting for someone to complete it correctly. There is a crossword challenge which has been going on for some time.

Lecture recording

Many folk at SOTA who could not get a seat in my lecture because the room was full bought the recording on CD afterwards to take home.

If you would like a copy of the recording of my lecture you can buy an MP3 from AC-Tapes which is run by Al and Carol Groznick who are a really great couple and they were at SOTA professionally recording all the workshops.

Seven SOTA’s

This was my seventh time at SOTA and the third year presenting astrological topics close to my heart. You can also get my past lectures from AC-Tapes which are The Dispositor Tree and Astrological Theories on Conception both from previous years.

AC-Tapes have a huge selection of lectures from SOTA conferences going back for many years. They also did the taping at the Midwest Astrology Conference (MAC) and recently at the Great Lakes Astrology Conference (GLAC) all held in the north east.

I believe each recording is around $10 each. For more details please visit AC-Tapes  website.

Oxford Summer School 2013

Oxford Summer School 2013

Oxford - Exeter CollegeAs the Sun enters the last decanate of Leo the season reaches it’s peak for warmth and relaxation. 

I don’t always plan my summers very well, and let’s face it often family life dictates certain activities, but fortunately this year things are going my way.

This week I shall be leaving home to attend the Faculty of Astrological Studies summer school at Oxford University in England and I am really excited about that. I was last there in 2008 when it was the Faculty’s 60th birthday, so it should be good fun!

I hope to be re-energized and inspired with new thought and techniques in astrology. They always have great speakers and lecturers and the accommodation is in the student rooms at Exeter college whose more famous student is J.R.R.Tolkien (born in Bloemfontein) author of The Lord of The Rings adds to the experience.

It promises to be wall-to-wall astrology for breakfast, lunch and dinner, sigh…

Although I will be receiving emails I perhaps will be delayed responding but I shall be back in my office on Monday, August 26th and then I will pick up the threads with everyone.

Have a great summer.

How to Book an Astrology Reading or Astrology Course with Alison

First Contact

When you are ready for your astrology consultation or class the best way to contact me is by using the form below.

I will write back within the next day or two and let you know when I can see you and offer you some timing options.

I usually have a two-week lead-time and sometimes I am simply busy so it varies.

What I need from you

For all astrology work I will need from you ;

  • your full name,
  • your birth date (day, month and year),
  • your birth time (hh:mm am/pm),
  • your birthplace (town and country) and
  • the place you are living in now (town and country).
  • I will also need your email address,
  • phone number and
  • optional physical address.

I will send you a Client information sheet to complete and sign beforehand.

Time and date

A client consultation is usually booked for one hour but it may overrun a bit. Classes are for two hours each.

I take early bird appointments and start teaching classes from 7:00am thorough the day and finish in the evening 9:00pm.

Not all days are fully busy and it varies depending on my clients and student commitments.

Special focus

Please let me know the focus for your consultation appointment.

If there is a specific question you want me to analyze or other areas in your life need and in-depth interpretation (often money, romance and health come up) tell me as soon as possible so I can be fully prepared. Most people have a specific reason to approach an astrologer.


What to bring

If you wish to record the session you may bring a digital recorder or other device. I do not tape but you are most welcome to do so.

You will probably want to take notes as well, so perhaps arrive with your writing materials. If it is an extended session feel free to bring a snack or your lunch.

What not to bring – Consultations

Please do not bring a “friend” to sit in on the consultation they can wait in the other room. If your sister drove you in her car, she can cool her heels in the waiting room (see, suddenly it has a name).

If you feel the need to have your friends, mother or boyfriends present there are other options.  Please do not bring your dog.


Refreshments

A consultation is really about chatting for over an hour so in time we can both get parched. I provide regular tea or coffee and cookies. (By the way my tea is better than my coffee, or so I have heard…) If you wish you may bring your own specialty tea bags. I also have chilled iced water for you.


Privacy

All consultations are strictly confidential. Even if you and I have mutual friends perhaps in the astrological community, rest assured I respect your privacy.

I have three planets in Scorpio (the sign of privacy and secrets) and I have no problem keeping mum. Afterwards, if I meet you in the street I won’t discuss your chart.


How to pay

You can pay for your consultation or course at the time of the booking via PayPal. On some classes and consultation pages there is a Buy now button on the screen.

If you need something slightly different then I will send you a PayPal invoice beforehand to your PayPal email address which is often different to your main email address.


Acknowledgements and confirmations

Your booking is only confirmed when you have paid. I will send you an acknowledgement email. I will only start analyzing your chart after I have received your payment. I learned many years ago about spending hours of my time preparing for clients who become no-shows and, after two weeks of this, you change your approach.


Astrology is a luxury item

To my mind, professional astrology services are a luxury item. You do not need astrology. No one needs it not like bread and water.

You can get free astrology anywhere online but if you want an experienced practitioner that is something else.

I do give back to the astrological community and pay-it-forward, as I donate one hour of my time every month to those in need. Check out my Giving page for details.
