Miracles of Miracles

Things sure have changed since I became a professional teacher some 15 years ago. Way back then, I was effectively banned from practicing astrology (I found a way around this and you can read my story which is featured on the Astrology Hub).

A few weeks ago, I decided to take advantage of an offer to teach at a Primary School. I thought it would be a great opportunity to extend my skills as a teacher by studying the transition process into secondary school from the other side. Being a data nerd, I also thought I might have the chance to steal, I mean borrow, some behaviour data to see if there are different results to the ones I got when I investigated if there was a correlation between the New Moon and Full Moon and adolescent behaviour. After securing a grant from the American Federation of Astrologers, I wrote up my results and the article was published as part of a book which can be purchased here.

My class won "Class of the Week" twice!
I'm very used to operating as an astrologer covertly. Or so I thought. But then. . .

But then a few days ago, in the middle of an OfSted inspection, my new head teacher confessed to me she had been reading my weekly and monthly horoscopes on the Cosmic Intelligence Agency. When she hired me, she knew all about my interests in astrology, my book, my research and my data nerdery. She had read my blogs and my website. In fact, I got the distinct impression she was more up to speed with what I am doing than I am. She even asked me to sign a copy of my book for her. She also consented to give me the school's behaviour data!!

I've been trying to bridge the gap between astrologers and non astrologers for decades. And this really was the first indication that there is a glimmer of hope that astrology just might cross over into mainstream education. I think I'm still in a state of shock.

And then (yes there's more!), my respected and learned friend Armand Diaz, did a beautiful write up of my data nerdery for the Astrological News Service (and it's on the front page!). The Astrological News Service, if you didn't know, reports on the cutting edge astrology news. For example, they were the first to publish Prince Charles' attendance to the Cultural Astronomy and Astrology graduation.

All of this is great news in the run up to the Kepler Conference where I'll be revealing all the additional results of my research into astrology and education and hopefully getting some advice from my esteemed colleagues as to where to publish my (now) peer reviewed and updated article.

It's all mega exciting stuff and I am so glad I cut out out all the irrelevant things that were getting me nowhere (Venus in Gemini hazard) so I could focus on the important stuff.

Leaps and bounds!

I'll leave you with another view of my interview with the wonderful Rod Suskin. . .Since this interview, I've been fully booked up with astrology consultations! :D

About the New Book

There are two wolves fighting inside of me, the old story goes, one wolf is good and the other is evil. “But Grandfather,” asked the child, “Which one wins?” The Grandfather answered, “The wolf I feed.”

We might like to think that being good is a natural instinct. In fact, doing the right thing takes a conscious decision. Every day, we are met with temptation to get ahead at the expense of someone else, to get away with something we know is wrong or to cut corners if we think no one is watching.

Following on from her powerful book on astrology and Education, “Growing Pains”, Alex Trenoweth explores the benefits of using “the bad guy” of the solar system: Saturn. Often avoided and seldom understood, if we understand our own Saturn then we can help others to understand theirs. Using case studies of  highly successful people contrasted with convicted serial killers, Trenoweth deftly demonstrates the dire consequences of feeding the wrong wolf.
