Hello and welcome to my website and thank you for being here!

People often ask me when I first found Astrology and I tell them, “always.”  I remember being 4 or 5 and first seeing the word Sagittarius and time literally stopping and the world moving around me.  It was a very very strange sensation and one of my clearest early memories.

Numbers, patterns and making links has always been my “thing.”  My friends used to test me on when certain parties and events were because I knew the date that everything happened.  I was often asked, “what are you going to do with this memory of yours?”  For years I didn’t know, then it alllll made sense when I finally realised astrology could legitimately by my career!

At University I read Natural Sciences; Biology, Philosophy and Theology (in true Rising Gemini fashion)  I couldn’t let go of Science nor could I let go of Philosophy, so I studied both with a little bit of Maths, Chemistry and Italian too.  I loved the logic of Science but the wonder of Philosophy and Theology gave me a sense of grounding that I would not have felt with pure sciences.

In 2007, after some travels and twists and turns of fate I moved to Italy (May the 13th 2007) as I had always been eager to speak another language.  Eventually I found myself in Rome and found a job working at The Vatican Museums as a Tour Guide.  That was a dream, I used to be fizzing with excitement as I finished my tours outside St Peter’s Basilica under the brilliant blue sky. I feel the same buzz today when I lead Astrology workshops.

The Vatican Museums have an enormous selection of art that includes Greco Roman, Renaissance, Egyptian… you name it, they’ve got it!  I learnt so much more about Art History, ancient civilisations and the threads that connect them all whilst I worked there.  Astrology is the study of these Greek and Roman myths and Mars, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn are all understood more fully by experiencing the art, sculpture and family tree that connects them.

After moving back from Rome I was very lost, my Sagittarius spirit deflated a little.  UK based but still a seeker!  I began working with VetsMediCover an exciting project where I learnt about online business, animals, pet health and pet nutrition. I completely altered my health by applying what I learnt about animals to myself and my skin transformed from bumpy and angry to smooth and happy within two weeks! More on this in the Health section of my blog!

To keep my Sagittarius spirit happy I enrolled at University again to complete a Postgraduate Diploma in Management and Business Ethics.  A topic that I really believe in and the reason that I donate a % of profits from my Magic Momenti chart sales to The International Refugee trust.

After years of obsessing about Astrology, interrogating everyone I met about their time of birth and birthday… I finally realised that I needed to study Astrology and follow this path.  I began studying at the London School of Astrology in 2014 and since completing a three year apprenticeship there I have also taken the following courses:

Astrology is illuminating and fascinating.  It is more complicated that I ever imagined it to be, more far reaching, more accurate and never fails to amaze me with the precision it offers.  Thank you so much for being here and I hope you will keep in touch by subscribing to my website and following me on instagram.

Below is some historic content to the link I have with Frankinsense & Mirth (my original blog that I started in 2014.)  When I qualify as a Medical Astrologer and Herbalist I will use this again.

Thank you for reading and talk to you soon,

Why Frankinsense?

• It’s like my name!
• … I talk lots of sense! 🙂
• I am very frank.
• The three kings gave gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh (they were astrologers!)
• This binds astrology and religion (despite all religious traditions being rather indecisive about this.)
• I bind astrology with natural heath care.
• My favourite Neal’s Yard products are made from Frankincense.
• In aromatherapy frankincense is used to help deepen the breath, it has supreme healing properties and can assist with helping people relax away from the chatter of their mind into meditation.
• In Ayurvedic medicine Frankincense or “dhoop,” has been used for hundreds of years for treating arthritis, healing wounds, strengthening the female hormone system and purifying the air.
• Frankincense is sourced from trees that grow on top of rocks. Magic!

“Whenever we have allowed ourselves to become oppressed by the mundane or tied to the past- indeed, restricted or weighed-down by any form of over attachment – Frankincense can help us to break free.”

Gabriel Mojay

My ultimate goal is to help people heal from emotional anxiety, insomnia, tension in the body, relationship disasters and to help people trust their instinct and flourish. Frankincense is connected to the all the ways I intend on doing this.  It is a bit long winded, but I like it.



open, honest, and direct in speech or writing, especially when dealing with unpalatable matters.
“a long and frank discussion”
open, sincere, or undisguised.
“Kate looked at Sam with frank admiration”
unmistakable; obvious.


a faculty by which the body perceives an external stimulus; one of the faculties of sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch.
“the bear has a keen sense of smell which enables it to hunt at dusk”
a feeling that something is the case.
“she had the sense of being a political outsider”
 perceive by a sense or senses.
“with the first frost, they could sense a change in the days”


 amusement, especially as expressed in laughter.
“his six-foot frame shook with mirth”


the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.
“the world of science and technology”

What do I do? 

I talk to you and would like you to think of me as an old friend who wants the best for you.  I feel a certain responsibility as an astrologer, it’s a privileged position to be in when people trust you with their lives and stories.  I hope to nurture people and give them some ideas about themselves to develop.  I hope that people feel better after speaking to me.  My goal is that you leave me feeling understood and optimistic about the future.

It is a privilege to see someone’s chart and understand what makes them tick.  The way it works now is to listen, talk and help you feel more sure of yourself and your choices.

The main thing I do is to stick to real talk, astrology is not an airy fairy subject.  It is practical and it is rational, the intuitive interpretation is grounded in reality.


What don’t I do?

I do not yet talk about medical issues.  I am currently studying Medical Astrology but have another 3 years to go until I finish this.

I will not tell you precisely what happens, but instead offer key words, examples and metaphors what will help you to prepare for what might be coming, or how you might be feeling.

I prefer to say, “I don’t know” rather than say something to satisfy you.  I am often asked “when will I meet someone?” and I will never limit you with an answer.  I prefer to help you love yourself as much as you would love a partner.  I want you to be the best version of yourself; happy, secure and full of love, life and purpose.  That’s how the alchemical potential of astrology will enable you to draw useful life experiences and people towards you.
