My mission is to excavate your Past, as deeply as I can dig,
to find the gold and precious gems of your compassion and courage
which have been waiting to be revived in this present life.
Your old skills are being called into action now.
We can explore your reason for incarnating,
your spirit’s deepest motivation that keeps you alive.
And you will see how the events of your life fit together
to lead you to this path.
Below is the experience and the skills I use in this service.
- began consulting with astrology in 1986, after 10 prior years of astrological study (with two teachers) and ongoing research, while also working for various ‘startups’ (of those times), keeping them on-track ethically (this was great background experience for helping you now with your career)
- developer of a genuinely unique, uplifting system of Astrology as a science of Mind, incorporating Buddhist psycho-philosophy & principles, to assist you with personal spiritual development & life purpose
- a specialist in using astrological interpretation to uncover the personal causes of insidious self-sabotage patterns (unconscious anxiety) that can block your career, talents, personal relationships, & health
- a specialist in using astrological interpretation to design an exceptional career for you beyond the mundane, for your inherent highest life-purpose expression for our times
- pioneered a new way to work with a database of thousands of asteroids (now over 19,000) as the ‘body-text’ of your astrology chart, thanks to advances in computer software for astrologers (see my Asteroid Software Reviews page)
Note: What I do sounds so bizarre that people can’t quite get their heads around it, until they actually experience a session. Interpreting the energy frequencies in the Earth’s field affecting your brain at your moment of birth is like reading your DNA—but with with more personal and spiritual detail! Here goes:
- articulating your higher aspirations and potentials while clearly defining your underlying motivation for incarnating (sifting though thousands of asteroid positions for the ‘body-text’ of your life-plan)
- providing you with a positive, insightful, spiritual & pragmatic approach
- encouraging dialogue with you, rather than a monologue of information, maintaining an open, relaxed, light, & often humorous ambience
- relating the ‘why’ of your life-issues and aspirations = Deeper Insight
- focusing mainly on your career/life-purpose direction, and sleuthing-out, to eliminate, subtle-sabotage so you can ‘live your life with exceptional purpose’
- an enthusiastic educator, an astrology teacher since 1991 (after initially teaching some Beginners classes for Garry Wiseman’s course in 1986)
- founded a curriculum based on extensive explorations into the scientific, metaphysical, spiritual, & practical aspects of astrology for practical application for you
- new courses:
Astrology & Mind Courses (personal/career skills via astrology: online late 2022–2023)
Yogacara Professional Astrology (comprehensive; professional astrology skills — no launch date as yet, possibly 2024)
‘Flower Essences: Healing Subtle Mind-Brain Sabotage’ (online — no launch date as yet)

- contributed a chapter ‘The Astrology of an Essence’ to Ian White’s 1999 book, Australian Bush Flower Healing (on the birth chart of the Alpine Mint Bush essence) (Apologies: the TransWorld editors, for some reason, published my first very rough draft, which was consequently also severely edited!) Now translated into Portuguese, German, & Italian.

- If you would like to contribute your deepest questions regarding the topics I’m writing about, you can send e an email via any of my websites on the Contact me page, to let me know what questions you’d like me to answer for you regarding astrology, flower essences, or reincarnation. As my life’s work has involved a huge amount of personal study, clinical research, and brain-storming over the past several decades (as I’ve had so many questions, myself!), I want to share as much as possible with you through my book series!

Speaker / Educator

- interviewed about astrology, and also flower essences, on Sydney and Canberra radio stations
- featured in double TV episodes of ‘Conversations With Robyn’ in 2006 (series screened on TVS and Foxtel Aurora, Australia), featuring also Dr Neil Hair (more clips from these programs will be available to view on this site soon)
- The Buddhadharma (practising Buddhist, official vows in the Tibetan Tradition from 1996) which has enhanced my abilities to work on a practical spiritual level for you … I had forced my mother to buy me a Buddha statue when I was very young. I read my first Buddhist philosophy book as a teenager in 1973 (a bit hard-going at the time!).
- Special Study: Yogacara Buddhist Psychology (since 1998), which I have combined with aspects of general brain science as the basis for my system of astrology, assisting you to reach for your exceptional purpose
- Taoist Philosophy; also Zen & Macrobiotic studies (since 1976), which have also led to my understanding of the astrological influences in your birth chart
(image: “The Tao”—my first attempt, 30 years ago, at calligraphy with real brush and ink block. This can now be done on an iPad!)
- Astrology foundations: Malcolm Utley (Cosmobiology from 1976); Garry Wiseman (Diploma NASOA 1986-7); international live speakers & authors, too many to name. (I’ve been very fortunate to have been led to the best people who had given me a marvellous foundation)
- Astronomy/Cosmology: Thunderbolts Project (Electric Universe model), especially via Wallace Thornhill, Don Scott, and Michael Clarage
- Business inspiration: seminars/books/blogs by: Lionel Fifield (mid-80s), Dr John Demartini, Dale Beaumont, Michael E Gerber, Siimon Reynolds, Napoleon Hill, Guy Kawasaki, Sir Richard Branson, Seth Godin, Stephen Covey, Garr Reynolds, Todd Henry, the CopyBlogger team, Joanna Penn, Jeanine Blackwell, the Flying Solo (Aus & NZ) online community . . .
- Worked in a number of new businesses (from their day 1 or 2!) in the mid-70s to mid-80s in various fields and in various positions (while also singing in rock bands), interacting with customers/clients, often as the face or voice of the company; keeping the companies on track, ethically, for success. A great experience in general career diversity and the effects of ethical strategies, which I can now pass on to you.
- Practising Hatha Yoga since 1968
- And even though I still avoid refined sugar and dairy in anything, I do allow myself two pieces of chocolate mudcake per year, one on my birthday (notice I didn’t say how large they could be!)
- I have been writing since I was 6 years old: poems, then short stories, an illustrated play at age 9; got well into a hand-written novel at age 10; lyrics for hundreds of my songs (some published with my last band); two contributions to anthologies (as above); still working on my book series linking astrology and mind (as above)—some ebooks due for publication in 2022 (I will be releasing several at the same time, and also as a box set)
- During the mid-70s to mid-80s, I was a professional rock (+jazz/blues) singer. I will later upload some very roughly recorded live sample pieces from my past to the Music page of my Portfolio Site, where you will presently find my first entirely made on iPad musical piece, Zen of Smooth, with uncharacteristically minimalist vocals (when I was testing the internal mic on my first iPad!) — you may have heard bits of this as my podcast theme. I have a little Buddhist mantra on YouTube (not my rock-singer voice!)—it’s also on one of my Reiki Courses: for Your Exceptional Purpose pages
- Have played guitar since age 10 (an improvisation I created in 1995, 10 years after I’d put the guitar and professional music away) is on the Musicpage of my Portfolio Site); I do miss my electric piano, but now dabble more on the iPad
- Avid Steve Morse fan!
- Doctor Who fan since I was a little kid (when the series first screened in Australia in black & white in the mid-1960s). The asteroid #3325 TARDIS is at my Sun–Moon midpoint, and also at my Jupiter–Pallas Athena midpoint! Favourite Doctors (in order of appearance): Tom Baker (one of the originals and the longest running Doctor), David Tennant (brought the life back into the role), Matt Smith (surprisingly nailed it, for one so young!), and Peter Capaldi (the quintessential Doctor!) … Sadly, like many others, I’ve abandoned the new 2018 reboot of the show with a female Doctor, absent of any backstory to the original narrative (and a seriously ugly TARDIS!). I hope the series eventually gets back on track 😔.
- Non-fiction books are my greatest attachment (thank heavens for ebooks and audio books or I would have needed a much bigger apartment!)
- A practising (official) Buddhist by lifestyle and philosophy (Tibetan Buddhist, and moving now back toward Zen); and a 40+ years student of Taoist Philosophy
- Kiva is my favourite non-profit organisation (not a charity, more of a solution): “Empower people around the world with a $25 loan”
- Happy to say I am not on FaceBook!
- I’ve had many dear friends in this life, including horses, dogs, cats, birds, fish, geckoes, water dragons, and cows. . . I don’t eat them! All life is precious (cockroaches, mosquitoes and only bothersome spiders are escorted outside in a special jar; and little geckoes, are welcome). A bug’s life may not mean much to you, but it means a hell-uv-a lot to the bug.
