Thank you for so much input, encouragement and clarification of my Moon assignment.
And as I have just re-read over your comments and wonderful insights, I’m truly blown away. I can feel you kindly and wisely guiding me through some of the important issues. The accuracy is amazing and so very helpful to my growth.
How wonderful this experience is and I just wanted to let you know how very grateful I am to have such a compassionate and wise teacher.

'Thank you so much for the time spent with me yesterday. I am still reeling from the accuracy of your reading. It's such a wonderful and comforting feeling to know the journey I am on is truly Devine. The fact that it's right there in my chart and you shared it with me. A total stranger out of thousands of Astrologers that I could have chosen, it was you. I will look forward to sharing this journey with you.'
Kathrin Middleton, Daredevil Films, Los Angeles
'Thanks again for the awesome readings haha I don’t think I’ve had anything of its calibre quite yet!'

'Michael's predictions are superb. I am having mine done each year now and using the reading as a hugely beneficial tool to meet challenges and seize opportunities ahead of me. Highly recommended!'
Kimm Fearnley, Ilkley UK
You did my chart last year about this time. Could you please forecast the next year for me? You were very accurate and it helped me make decisions empowering me!'
"I can highly recommend Michael's Vedic astrology course for anyone interested. The course itself is specifically tailored to the birth chart of the student, in my case Michael was able to see that a lot of technical or "book" learning at first would have not been easy for me and his focus was on the more intuitive aspects of the astrology. This got my interest and made the teachings on rules much easier for me. No course that Michael runs is exactly the same, how many teachers do we find that can already intuitively understand the needs of each student? Michael will look at your birth chart and tailor the structure and order of the course to suit your strengths and challenges.
As a teacher Michael is caring, understanding, helpful and endlessly patient. Even when I made a serious error in my interpretation of a particular planet Michael was able to gently point out the error and make me feel good about it! I always felt empowered after reading Michael's feedback on my work too.
There are no time limits and deadlines in the course and so it fits in with your life too. Michael knows that studying the course will help you to grow and move forward and sometimes we need time to do that. The course runs at a distance and so you can also take your time and study at home in comfort.
In terms of the course itself I found it caused massive transformation for me. The careful way it is planned helps the unfolding of your understanding of yourself and it dissolved lots of self-doubt and self-blame for me. I was finally able to make peace with myself and my own human nature.
I cannot say enough positive things about the course and I would highly encourage anyone reading this to take the plunge and engage. Your life will change as a result of taking this course. Thank you so much Michael for offering this course and helping us to evolve into a more enlightened and compassionate understanding of ourselves, others around us and the world."

'Michael puts his heart and soul into all that he does, he is my distance teacher in Astrology and I have yet to meet him face-to-face, yet I feel his care and support so strongly through his distance learning course, much more powerfully than some face-to-face teachers I have had. He never ceases to amaze me, how he seems to have an endless flow of knowledge, insights, care and time that can be felt so powerfully through the ether, I have no doubt that if you take the time and travel to attend one of his days you will be spending it with a genuine person, a genuine knowledgeable and incredibly experienced astrologer and a very considerate man, who is literally worth his weight in gold.'
Tiffany Crossara, London UK
'Your chart analysis is of a very high standard, and you seem to have a talent for going deep into the chart and revealing the deeper truths and the subtle and psychological perspectives. Very impressive work indeed.
'You seem to be a one man phenomenon! Not only greatly spiritual and gifted poet writer of huge sensitivity, but also driven to swift and effective action to realise the dream. A rare and precious combination indeed.'
Kath Reade UK
'I have known Michael for a few years now and decided to have a professional astrology reading from him as I was interested in the Vedic side of astrology and know that Michael is incredibly knowledgeable in this field.'
'I was very impressed with the readings and was amazed at how accurate my charts seemed to describe my personality, especially things that Michael couldn't have possibly known about me too. Michael explained everything in great detail and encouraged me to ask any questions about the readings, which I did, and got a great deal of in-depth information from'
'I would be glad to recommend Michael to anyone looking for an astrology reading as he is very thorough and, I believe, very accurate in his work and predictions. I also had a short tarot reading from Michael too, which proved very insightful too. I couldn't have asked for a better astrologer!' Darren
'Your Reading helped me a lot. It jump-started me in another direction. I am already compiling my healing classes for art and jewellery. And thank you for your wise, kind thought, and for your sweetness and kindness.'
'Last year I attended one of your taster sessions at Star Mountain, Plymouth and was with you for more than an hour, as what was revealed was so fascinating and incredibly accurate. You probably won't remember me ... a Diploma student in person centred counselling ..... I am glad now to be getting in touch again and have been so much looking forward to having a full reading done'.
Kathryn, Plymouth UK
'I have a very soft spot for Michael, because he is a very kind and gentle man. Most people seek out astrologers or tarot readers at times when their path seems unclear. When either there seems too many possible directions to follow or none. In the latter case it feels as if a brick wall stands between you and your future. Finding a signpost or a guide to get you through those challenging times is a god-send. But it is important that your signpost is accurate and your guide knowledgeable.'
'Michael's strength as an Astrologer becomes most apparent. To reach his level of expertise is akin to doing a University degree followed by postgraduate studies and then years of 'practise' and research'
'There are many branches of Astrology and it always amazes me how much information can be drawn from the different systems. I was a Western psychological/karmic astrologer and I dabbled in a lot of other areas. But I never got into Eastern Astrology- such as Vedic Astrology because it uses different calculations and required a different mindset to the one that came naturally to me. So it was really wonderful when I found out that Michael's main area of expertise was in Vedic Astrology and I was able to get a completely new 'take' on the events and character traits that I have always viewed from a western perspective'.
'I had started to doubt predictive astrology when my world fell apart in 2002 and my chart gave no real indication of the intensity of that experience. Michael looked at the timing of those events from a Vedic perspective and on that chart a great deal was happening. I was able to get a level of understanding of the spiritual significance of that time that has really helped me'.
'What was really great about my session with Michael was the depth of information he provided on that event and on my future. Meaning always makes the challenges of life easier to handle. When you can see why you are challenged and what the lesson is, or could be, from the challenge it makes even the worst events manageable. And if there is a light at the end of the tunnel indicated ' and a date you'll reach it- it just makes the journey to reach the light so much more achievable.'
'Because astrology can feel a little like information overload, Michael uses Tarot as a frame onto which the meat of the information can be hung. It's a wonderful blend of the right brain intuitive guidance supported by the left brain analytical detail astrology provides.'
'If you want to understand yourself, your spiritual as well as your mundane life journey and its significance, then have a session with Michael. He also does children's charts, which I know can be a wonderful help to parents so they can understand the individual needs of their child more fully.'
'A big thank you to Michael. My life was in tatters. I was facing a police investigation and three court cases where unscrupulous colleagues had decided to take me to the cleaners. Michael's guidance enabled me to have the faith to get through this terrible period. He accurately identified the time-scale over which the court cases would run. He told me that I would not lose my money, clearly identifying when I had made a key investment and when I should sell it to protect my assets. Because he saw the outcome, I was able to have faith and trust and get through and carry my family with me'
'Michael's timely and sensitive reading enabled me to make my peace with my mother before she died.'
'I was trying hard to understand a period of recent conflict and struggling to get various business directions off the ground after losing my job. Michael explained that the period I had gone through was not only my 'Second Saturn Return', but also the predictive period in Vedic astrology known as Rahu ' Ketu, a once in a life-time tough period where I would encounter my incarnational destiny. The divine purpose of this rollercoaster period was to put me on my true life course. Michael saw that I was now trying too many life-directions to allow me to succeed. He advised me which to cut out and also advised me to undertake a period of healing to mop up the damage from the stressful period just passed.Michael puts his heart and soul into all that he does, he is my distance teacher in Astrology and I have yet to meet him face-to-face, yet I feel his care and support so strongly through his distance learning course, much more powerfully than some face-to-face teachers I have had. He never ceases to amaze me, how he seems to have an endless flow of knowledge, insights, care and time that can be felt so powerfully through the ether, I have no doubt that if you take the time and travel to attend one of his days you will be spending it with a genuine person, a genuine knowledgeable and incredibly experienced astrologer and a very considerate man, who is literally worth his weight in gold.'

'Many thanks for the CD and the printed reports. I have been beavering away on the computer over the weekend and early this week on the reports and find them fascinating. Indeed what you have to say on the CD is certainly true on many counts, also the predictions look as if they will unfortunately still be an on going process with my husband and I. Very karmic as I know myself but it has certainly not been easy for three years now and more to come. I admit not easy for him too. But hopefully this next year I will have learnt more about controlling my emotional outbursts. It is, as you say, the dreadful no confidence syndrome which is the hardest to manage right now,. At least when the cycle began the last time, I had more. 29 years ago when the cycle came round I was able to leave the house and work, alas this time the problems I did not sort out then have returned in full force and no escape this time. But I do believe one does turn to face ones destiny hard as it may be. There is one request I would ask of your before I get down to reviewing and talking with you again and going over certain points more thoroughly. Are you able to see where certain configurations were, just the vital ones from November 1991- through l993. Or even just November 1991 to March 1992. A quick check please. I wondered always if it was not predicted and came from outside of time, or whether one could see it in the stars, as they say.Because this is the key to my whole fate changing completely. You are indeed very talented and very hardworking. Sincerely I do thank you'
'Excellent Michael, l am really pleased with my readings & look forward to study my downloads you sent me.The report gives me a future to work on , & look forward to rest of my future learning new skills, l am so happy my friend thank you so much. blessings'
I find there are more people than ever trying to book a place on my Sound Healing Days and I am reflecting on the fact that it was my astrology reading with you who first suggested that I should go in to this work, and if it had not been for your initial encouragement I might never have thought of it. I really want to thank you and tell you how very appreciative I am. I am loving the sound healing work and find it endlessly fascinating.
Thank you so much for doing the interview today. As expected, you had a very soulful and caring approach to your work. I am looking forward to reading the reports which you have sent me.
