Astrology has been my sole source of income, my way of being and the way that I live since discovering it on the 17th Jan 1993. Self-taught, I did sojourn with a correspondence course with the Faculty of Astrological Studies under the tutorship of Christine Tate-Wheeler, completing three of the four year training modules in a little under a year. However, I never sat the exams due to my commitments to seeing clients and running a school of astrology called The Dublin Astrological Centre.I’ve been ever so fortunate to have attracted people who wanted to work with me from the very beginning of my path and I’ve worked with clients intensely on a daily basis since 1994. I have a varied clientele, located all over the world, and have worked privately with individuals and corporately with business, sports clubs, political parties and religious institutions for over two decades. My practise is based in my office in Blackrock, Dublin, Ireland, from where I write, divine, create and see clients in person or via ZOOM.Until the time of my movement onto my current path, I was reading Geography in Trinity College, Dublin and playing football, two additional passions I still have today. I currently reside in Greystones, Ireland with my family. My life-partner and wife, Karen, walks the same path as an astrologer and we have two children, Sarah and Maya. Together we run the Blue Rose, a school of astrology and spirituality and have students all over the world who download our classes, join in via ZOOM or attend in person. My focus is evident in my extensive public writing. I am interested in helping people develop a deeper confidence in their commitment to what they lOve and living what they love. And I would lOve to share my passion with you and to work with you concerning what you love.I look forward to working with you.

Morning Star Venus Vigintiles the Sun in Mutable Air and Mars moves into a new Neptune-Mars cycle in Mutable Water It can be exhausting being on a conscious path, as the processing, clearing, reflecting, shedding, processing some more, clearing even more, reflecting a little deeper, shedding yet another layer, planting a hopeful seed, re-envisioning your…

The 7th June as Mutable Air Venus gestates Every dawn, like every conception, carries with it not only the hOpe of a new start, but an anxiety of what will come to pass as your mind projects forward into the ever moving stream of time from where you have previously moved through. That anxiety, is…

The Gold Diary

Astrologers are familiar to being both misrepresented and misunderstood and today is no different, bar the fact that it is far easier to access and disseminate information. There is a lot of poor astrology being promoted that is both disempowering and fear based. There are a lot of people in the spiritual community that use…

The 1st June – Dark Mutable Air Venus In a world that favours the bright and dazzling colours, the dark has developed many negative and fearful associations. It conjures up images of concealment, loss, isolation, madness, failure, grief and the demonic shadow. The alchemical power of such a phase may therefore be lost since the…
