“My fascination with the stars began when I watched the night sky as a child in Queensland. Over the years, on clear dark nights, I remember seeing eclipses of the moon, a long-tailed comet and various planets and fast-moving satellites. I learned some astrology from books in my late teens, then went to Melbourne University to study English and History.
After working as a secondary teacher for over a decade, I followed my love of literature and the arts and returned to university in the first intake for the Graduate Diploma in Editing and Publishing at RMIT. In the late 1980s, I began my work in the publishing industry as a professional book editor.
A significant dream led me to begin my formal studies in astrology in Melbourne in 1993. I was the first student to graduate in the four-year professional training program at Astro*Synthesis in 1997.
Since childhood I have been passionate about the symbolic life and the meanings offered through story, myth, poetry and dreams. My interest in Jungian Psychology was sparked in the 1980s and deepened through my astrology studies. In 2000 I went to Zurich and soon after began my formal intensive training there as an analyst – melding my work as teacher, wordsmith, astrologer and psychotherapist.
