Welcome to The Next Phase. My primary interest is in Astrology and the name refers to the next Moon phase, the Moon has a great influence on all people and creatures here on Earth and indeed the Universe. We tend to notice the Moon when it is full or just a slither as it emerges or moves behind the Sun. The Moon’s cycle is used in Secondary Progression Astrology in a dynamic way, to illuminate our pathway to success. The Moon’s phase tells us where we are now and the next phase shows where we are headed; this is useful information if you intend to start something new or in need of direction if you feel your creative flow has been stemmed.

We are all multifaceted and I have other interests including the use of Tarot cards as a catalyst of change by utilising  a number of spreads for divination and to cast meaningful spells that may help in manifesting a desire (for good only).

I have also studied mediumship and worked as a spiritual medium along with healing. My Doctorate being based on the comparison of the spiritual practices of medieval mystics and contemporary mediums. I continue to work with mediums and transformational healers.

So, it is my intention to use several disciplines to show how my life has been transformed and continues to change as I move into the next phase of my life.  My blog will reflect the Astrological clock and the other sacred arts, sharing some of my research with you, so I hope the pages will delight, inspire and connect with you in some way.

If you have a question regarding astrology or in relation to your chart then I will endeavour to answer this within 2 days. I hold the right to make public your question and my answer however I will not identify you. Please complete the form and submit your question in the free section.

You are welcome to send the names of people who are unwell and in need of healing. I will send blessings to them during my meditation rituals each day. You will find a form enabling you to send a message to me in the free area, details will not be made public.
