Following on from Ghislaine’s recent post, reflecting on her tutoring experience, here are shorter contributions by other recent tutors.

Looking forward and back on my involvement with APA

It was with sadness and also a sense of anticipation that I approached December 2019 that marked the approaching closure of the APA School.

I wrote about Harry’s chart some time ago, on my astrological psychology blog, when there was speculation over whether or not he would go into action in the Iraq war. At the time, he was serving in the armed forces and stated (but note, only via his friends) that he wanted to go to Iraq.
