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

Tuesday 22nd September

Today the sun moves into Libra which here in the northern hemisphere marks the autumn equinox and the first day of autumn. It is fantastically warm , we ate out in the garden today and yesterday, and it’s really nice to make the most of the autumn sunshine whilst we can. The hedgerows are full of seasonal fruit and sun kissed blackberries just smell so lovely, fruity with a hint of wine, what is there not to like!?

Astrologically Libra is the sign of balance and the autumn equinox is a time of reflection and looking at what we started in the spring and how that has worked out. At the spring equinox. the sun is in go getting Aries the opposite sign to Libra and these two signs are all about how we relate to others whilst balancing our own needs with those of others, not an easy challenge. Libra is the sign of grace and co operation and it is good at stepping away from things for a moment and thinking about solutions. Libra is a logical air sign after all. However, Aries action is also needed because other wise we are so busy weighing up the pros and cons we don’t do anything!

This year we have been living with covid for six months as here in the UK as we were locked down on 24th March just around the spring equinox. So at the autumn equinox it is a good time to consider our actions and appreciate the positive results and look to adjust things that didn’t quite go to plan and to also look to teh winter ahaed and moe forward with that in mind. At the moment this is incredibly difficult for us all as a wider society.

On an individual level, I planted a whole load of veg seeds on our allotment around the spring equinox. I went to the garden centre just before lockdown and had a a big spend up on seeds and potting compost and I am glad I did! I am very grateful to say that we are very fortunate in that they have all done really well and we have been and still are harvesting loads of veg including tomatoes, courgettes, beans, carrots, beetroot, lettuce, radishes and lots of cute little mini pumpkins. We also have wild blackberries on our allotment which are really sweet, so its nice to appreciate all the goodies from our beautiful earth. Note to self- do not plant so many tomatoes! Also since the spring equinox I have learnt new phrases such as ‘social distancing’ and have got used to wearing a mask in shops and done most of my socializing on Zoom. I am happy to say that I have ‘attended’ quite a lot of interesting astrology talks and ‘seen’ speakers who I would not have done in the ‘real’ world.

I am really looking forward to a webinar entitled ‘Working with Chiron’ by one of my favourite American astrologers – Steven Forrest. It is this Saturday September 26th and is run by the excellent Astrology University I will make sure I have got my supply of snacks and drinks ready for that one!
