Thanks to all involved in The English Huber School

Bruno & Louise Huber began teaching their wonderful new system of astrological psychology in the 1960s in Zürich, initially in the form of seminars and later as formal courses. All the teachings were originally in German and a large following of students was soon established. Over subsequent years a series of books began to appear,

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

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.

The Boy, the mole, the fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy

This book was a Christmas gift (thank you daughter) and its simple message, full of wisdom and magic, bears hope and significance for the times we are living in as 2020 and the new decade begins. It’s about love, friendship and kindness. I’ve read it through cover to cover, I’ve dipped into it, and I’ve

I wrote this post on my astrological psychology blog in August 2007, when the famous telescope was celebrating its half-century. On 7th July 2019 it was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Status, and it’s worth revisiting what I wrote in the context of this significant award, setting in alongside the chart image for the telescope and

Colour Charts in Books

We all know that colour is an essential feature of astrological psychology, and it gives immediate meaning to the Huber-style birth chart. In the early days of the English Huber School, charts were hand-drawn with coloured pens. Then along came computers to help the process, and many charts were of necessity black-and-white. Of course, this

Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury tops of my list of rock singers. His voice is iconic, along with his style and energy in performance. He was electric and riveting on stage but, according to the current biopic of his his life with Queen, was not an easy person to live with. Nor was he comfortable with himself and

The National Health Service (NHS) in Britain is 70 years old. It was first rolled out as a service on 5th July 1948 at Park Hospital, Manchester. The chart is set up for noon; there’s no way of knowing exactly when the NHS was actually “switched on” The NHS is said to be the envy

Astrology, Relationships and Click Horoscopes

When looking at relationships between two people, a conventional chart comparison (synastry) will seek out aspects between a planet in a sign in one person’s chart, and a planet in a sign in the other person’s. For example, the Moon in Cancer my chart might be in a 120 degrees apart trine aspect relationship with

Gustav Holst and The Planets Suite

I recently visited the Holst Birthplace Museum in Cheltenham and was fascinated to learn about this British composer’s life. I’ve long been a fan of his Planets Suite and have occasionally wondered how he was inspired to write music about seven planets with their correct, traditional astrological characteristics. At the museum I discovered that he

Will has a long association with APA and his 2003 book, Psychosynthesis: The Elements and Beyond, is recommended reading for those studying our published Diploma Course in Astrological Psychology. Will has packed his

Theresa May

It’s impossible to find the birth time of the inscrutable Mrs May, so her chart is set up for noon. Don’t expect this time to be correct; all that can be done is to take a look at what is there using the noon chart and make some comments. I’ve been observing our Prime Minister
