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.

The Balsamic Moon Diary

Ahead of the Cardinal Water New Moon Every month, just before the Moon news, our closest celestial neighbour disappears from sight in our skies. Her invisibility is mirrored within our psyches as our emotional body turns inwards and prepares to release that which is no longer necessary and readies itself for a re-plenishment and re-newal of…

Eclipses

Some thoughts on eclipses If you think the hysteria over Mercury retrograde is silly, then if you scan across websites and blogs that seek to interpret the human impact of an eclipse, you would swear that we’ve not moved on much from the Dark Ages – doom, fear and negativity. Okay, so there are more…

The Venus Diaries

Venus Ingresses into Virgo As your heart slowly moves through this maturing time, what you truly value is brought to the fore of your spiritual development and lessons of judgement and discernment rise more powerfully for you to deal with. Listening to your gut, without judgement has never been more important, as your ego struggles…

The Pyramid Diary

Grand Water Trine from the Sun to the Jupiter-Neptune Trine Yes, it is and will continue to be emotionally intense. Yes, those ancient scripts, many of which are ancestral, have resurfaced. Yes, it feels chaotic and overwhelming. Yes, it feels profoundly freeing. But no matter where you are on your Path; no matter how dark…

The Red Diary

Mars conjoins the South Node in Fixed Air As the light dims on this descending path, it feels as if you are retracing steps already made. Memories of actions taken, interactions experiences, conversations had, exchanges shared fleet through your mind as you revisit and review what has previously befallen you. Frustration, that silent companion, whispers…

The Gold Diary

Cardinal Water Sun trines the Fixed Water Jupiter It is not always easy to be true to yourself, to stand firm with your conviction and to radiate your true essential being. It is easy to confuse ego with confidence. But they are not the same. Have you ever been in the presence of someone who…

The Red Diary

Retrograde Fixed Air Mars continues to conjoin the Lunar South Node Ancient scripts surfacing, irritating your ego as once again you tread gingerly over ground already covered. I thought I’d learnt; I thought I had healed; I thought I’d moved on; I thought I’d grown, are noisy voices that echo loudly, drowning out the reality…

The In-Between Diary

Cardinal Fire Chiron quintiles Cardinal Earth Pluto It’s a funny old place, this Earth plane. It feels solid, and yet… It feels like the laws of physics operate, and yet… It feels as if you have to toil and labour, and yet… It feels like you are alone, and yet… If feels as if only…

The Gold Diary

Sun opposes Saturn It is as if the hand of Fate has stretched out from the gOd’s themselves, as your Light feels as if being tested by a series of external agencies, as everything feels as if it is on slow reel time. Within this ‘slow-mo’ state, a tinge of pride flushes your cheeks as…
