About me

Hi there,

I am Claire and I’ve always been interested in maps, whether a crayoned treasure map as a kid or an ordinance survey map as an adult, the secrets they hold have always thrilled me.

I discovered astrology at 19 when I had my chart done and with it I discovered the biggest, most far reaching map of all. A map that allows you navigate the tricky path of your life, illuminating the stopping off points and future destinations like no other map can. I was hooked and still am.

As with all maps, to use them correctly and to their fullest, you need learn to recognise the symbols used and learn the key. This takes time and guidance and can become a life’s journey.

Mine has been peopled by classes, books and courses.  Liz Greene’s in depth discussions about astrology, mythology and psychology led me to take a psychology degree. My need to communicate what I had learned led me to Norfolk and a teaching qualification then onto a Diploma in Astrology from the Mayo School.

Norfolk’s clear dark skies offer a fantastic opportunity to follow the movements of the constellations and planets, particularly the moon and I am a great advocate of ‘back porch’ astronomy, which allows us to see this great map writ large above us. I am a Saggittarian and am always looking over the horizon to see where I want to gallop off to next!

So here I am at my next destination, sharing my knowledge and passion for a subject that has given me so much pleasure and guidance.

Claire

Astrologer’s Diary Sunday 17th March- Saturday 23rd March

Saturday 23rd March 2019

I’m delighted to say that the Opening up to Spring morning workshop at Kelling combining yoga and astrology went off well. Thank you very much to everyone who came, I hope you all enjoyed it. I would also like to say a big thank you to Gini for making this happen. I enjoyed the yoga and now feel stretched, energized and ready for the spring. We will soon be getting together to plan the next workshop in our series of seasonal Saturdays. This is called Embracing the fullness of Summer and is on Saturday 22nd June close to the Summer Solstice.
Kelling studio all set out ready for our workshop.

Thursday 21st March

Wow! What a beautiful moon, I went out at about six pm and wandered up our lane beyond our neighbours’ houses taking photos. It was a beautiful evening with the dramatic pinks and golds of the sunset in the West and the moon rising in the East.
Just before 10pm – the time of the actual Equinox, I sat out in the garden all wrapped up wearing my favourite furry hat in the moonlight gazing up at the moon. Then I got back inside by the fire for a warming cuppa! Oh the joys of being a rural dwelling (mildly eccentric) astrologer! 😉

Wednesday 20th March

Today, Wednesday 20th March is a busy day! To start with, as I have been mentioning for the past couple of days, it is the Spring Equinox. This is when the sun crosses the equator and we have roughly equal days and nights. The word Equinox comes for the Latin for ‘equal nights’ . It is that day when the sun moves into Aries, the first sign of the zodiac and a new season begins. For us here in the northern Hemisphere it is a day of hope and promise when the light returns. Astrologically and astronomically it is the first day of Spring and the weather here in Norfolk reflects that, it is sunny and warm. It is a great time to set intentions and to act on them. In astrology is the start of the astrological year. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac.

Also, did you know that the Spring Equinox (in the Northern Hemisphere) is International Astrology Day today? A day to celebrate astrology. 🙂

Added to this, we have a full moon tonight, here in the UK it’s exactly full in the early hours of tomorrow morning. Did you see it last night? It was beautiful, peeping through the clouds when it was still dusk and then later on, after night fall, flooding the sky with a pearly, silver light. It is a ‘super moon’, at perigee – its closest position to the earth so it appears at its biggest and brightest.

And finally… the 20th March is International Day of Happiness.

Happy Spring Equinox – bring on the light, the joy and the daffodils..!

I love this, just in time for the Spring Equinox tomorrow.No photo description available.

Monday 18th March

I hope you had a good weekend, we did, I had a lovely if rather muddy walk yesterday with my neighbour around the lanes and green lanes near our house. Spring is certainly on its way, the daffodils are out in our gardens and the blackthorn and primroses are out and green is starting to show in the hedgerows. Saying that, it is still pretty nippy and stormy, I do like this blustery changeable weather. There are two first days of Spring so we can take our pick! Meteorological Spring has already kicked in, it starts on the first of March. However, astronomical spring is just around the corner as it starts at the Spring Equinox. It falls around the 20th or 21st March and varies slightly every year as it is the time when the sun moves in to the first point of Aries. This year it is on Wednesday 20th March at 8.58pm GMT to be precise!
