Ho’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian spiritual tradition, which is best translated into English as ‘making what is right more right’. This captures our approach to reading an astrological chart. We are each born as the expression of a unique moment in time and the work of the astrologer is to assist the individual in understanding the essence of this moment, the kinds of outlets which will best enable us each to express these energies, and the way the life path unfolds over time.
We are two astrologers based in South Cheshire and North Staffordshire, who have many years combined experience in chart reading, as well as in delivering workshops and working in a variety of educational settings.
Matthew Wyman’s interest in astrology dates from his teenage years, when it seemed like a good alternative to the flatland science he was being taught. After a brief diversion to study, live and work in flatland, he returned to its study and practice in the late 1990s, and has recently (Summer 2010) completed the Astro Logos Certificate in Delineation and Predictive Astrology. He describes his work with astrology as one way to try to bring a spiritual dimension and a glimpse of divine intention into everyday life. As well as astrological practice, Matthew is an experienced teacher, having worked in a variety of educational settings with a range of age groups, especially young adults, since around 1990. One quality shared by both, he says, is the opportunity for the flash of insight, the breakthrough moment which can change one’s whole reality. Another is the ongoing possibility to affirm the truth and significance of everyone’s lives, to act as a counterbalance to the disempowering stories the everyday world feeds us about what is important and meaningful.
Georgina Spencer has always been fascinated by astrology. She developed an interest in her teens and, despite years spent studying and working in mainstream education, has returned to astrology again and again for the powerful insights it has to offer. Having been a student with several astrology schools, she completed the Astro Logos Certificate in Delineation and Predictive Astrology. She believes that astrology demonstrates time and again how everything is connected and reinforces her belief that everything we do matters, even the smallest thing. We are all unique and understanding more about ourselves and the best expression of our ‘uniqueness’ can help us lead more satisfying and rewarding lives. Georgina has no doubt that astrology can help us in this understanding and exploration.
