(I loved this comment: ” your photos are very ‘you’. That kind of Scottish, wry, well-lived and come through a hedge backwards yet totally together again kind of look…”from my old friend and former fellow CPA student Sarah Bartlett.

Born and raised in the storm-tossed stark beauty of the Scottish Western Isles where my love for nature, sky and seascapes first arose. Driven always by restless curiosity about why we are here, and what we have to do to feel there is a point to it all.

Diverse work record, mostly vocational but not without its forays into interesting byways, eg the British Merchant Navy whose honourable discharge papers I hold, as well as a university Arts degree, and post-graduate qualifications in education, social work and psychological astrology.

I have always written in one context or another, with published work in newspapers, magazines and journals in the UK and USA in recent years; nearly always taught adult education students in a rich variety of settings; counselled for a long time both in social work and private practice; supervised social work and counselling students; taught and practised as a professional astrologer.

Since 2019 I no longer do horoscope readings, since I am focusing on mentoring student astrologers, offering mentoring support to fellow professional astrologers, teaching a small group of tutorial students – and, of course, writing. You can find details of my articles, essays and columns on astro-wiki.


“Rumbold Raven’s Magic Menagerie” ( illustrated children’s poetry book)

“Wisps from the Dazzling Darkness” (memoir and analysis of thirty years’ intermittent paranormal experiences)


Jupiter Meets Uranus (“…a great introduction to how astrology works at the individual and social level…)    The first, print edition of this book was published in the USA by the American Federation of Astrologers in 2009.

The Moon’s Nodes in Action ( described by Dr Liz Greene as “…a superb thesis…” )
