About the Author
I was born in a small village in a remote part of west
Wales. I have always lived near the sea and this is still
true today. I live a simple life and am dedicated to my
work. One of the inspirations for my work comes from
my parents. My father was a Druid and an astronomer
and my mother was a Celtic astrologer. I am equally well versed in the 13
month lunar based calendar( which my parents used) as I am in the solar
calendar. I have chosen the solar calendar because I believe it is more
accessible for the majority of people, though my intuitive art is based very
much on early influences from both of my parents.
The Celts and the Druids both had strong oral traditions. All their
mysticism and secrets were passed down through generations by word of
mouth. The Druids have few written records which describe their
mathematics or techniques aside from Oghams-glyphs which are
notoriously difficult to translate. The Celts devised multiple systems of
organic classification and I believe their genius lay in their ability to
observe the motions of the earth and its connection to her inhabitants as
well as to her place in the cosmos.
The Celtic meaning behind each personality type is born from an
understanding of the interconnected nature of all things. A person born
under the dominance of a certain season, animal or vegetation indicates a
partnership between that person and his/her phase of entrance into the
natural world. I believe that my predictions are uniquely individual
because of the early influences from my parents.
In my view, astrology is an art form as well as a science. It’s true that the
calculation of an astrological chart is based on mathematical data and
astronomical facts. However, when I add the extra dimensions of
sensitive interpretation and intuitive perceptions (based on my intimate
knowledge of Celtic/ Druidic astrology and astronomy) to science based
findings, this is where the art and the science meet.
Although a detailed birth-chart can’t reveal the finer nuances of
character, what it can indicate are marked inclinations towards or against
drug addiction, for example, promiscuity, frigidity, homosexuality,
multiple marriages neuroses, hidden talents, career and financial
potential. It can also show tendencies towards honesty or dishonesty,
cruelty, violence, fears, phobias as well as psychic ability plus many other
strengths and weakness.
By learning your child’s solar sign you can increase both you patience and
understanding of your child. You’ll understand why your bright Gemini
child is prone to so much fidgeting; you’ll appreciate why your fastidious
Virgo child is preoccupied with tidiness and cleanliness. You’ll be better
able to tolerate the carelessness and blunt outspokenness of your
Sagittarian youngster, and empathise more with the endless arguments
put forward by your Libran child. Moreover, you will learn to see beyond
the apparent surface rudeness of your Aquarius child as he searches for
answers to his many questions.
When trying to analyse your child, don’t be fooled if you find the
occasional quiet Gemini child, the Aries child with a healthy savings
account, and a practical Piscean. If you scratch deeper than the surface,
you’ll most likely also discover that the quiet Gemini has a mind that
operates at jet lightning speed, the Aries will choose to wear a bright red
coat to the bank and talk back to the bank clerk, the practical Piscean will
write poetry in secret and in adulthood, probably foster the highest
number of orphaned children in the district.
What to Expect
The Aries child will be very active from a young age and an early walker. He will be
openly affectionate and very generous, yet it is possible to hurt his feelings very
easily and then you can expect short bursts of temper. He is naturally competitive
and needs goals to aim for. If you want him to excel in his studies (which he is
more than capable of doing) then introduce some element of competition. He has a
very vivid imagination and is a born leader which makes him very independent at a
very young age.
On the negative side, your Aries child will be quite demanding and attention
seeking. Because he is so active he will be accident prone and probably break a
few bones. Don’t forget that despite his tough exterior he is actually very gentle
and naive underneath it all and although he will try your patience to the limit, you
must not treat him harshly. Young Aries children who are not handled well in
childhood can develop a very cruel streak in adulthood.
Tip For Parents
A very hard lesson for him to learn will be taking responsibility for his own
actions. If you can teach him this lesson as a youngster it is not one he will have to
repeat later in life. Keep him busy and challenged at all times.
The Aries child will need gentle handling with lots of love and affection. Be firm
and make fair rules and your Aries child will grow into a fine courageous adult
who will make you very proud of all his achievements.
What to Expect
The Taurus child will be enormously affectionate and will respond readily to lots of
demonstrations of physical love. Taurus children adore being cuddled. The girls
are usually very feminine and will love to dress up for parties though some can be
tom-boys. The boys will be quite masculine. Both are emotionally stable by nature,
well-behaved in company and a credit to you most of the time.
They will work well in school, be industrious and methodical in their approach to
their lessons, rarely forget to do their homework and on the whole be quite
obedient to authority. Teachers are usually full of praise for Taurus children in
school. Watch out for an artistic and/or musical side to them which should be
Taurus children need lots of love. They will enjoy their food and have good
appetites. Girls usually become excellent cooks in later life and both sexes show
exceptional loyalty to their parents in old age. They have very sensual natures and
can be visibly moved by both colour and sound. They love fair play, common sense
and good judgement.
On the negative side they can be extremely stubborn, especially if you are trying to
push them into something they really do not want to do. This can also show itself
as sheer pig-headedness. They will physically resist being forced into anything
against their will. They hate loud noises and will rebel even more against being
shouted at. Do not underestimate their stubborn streak for this can turn from a
slight stubbornness into a will of iron.
Tips for Parents
Speak gently and logically at all times. Don’t ever threaten. Your Taurus child will
find it very hard to resist affection, and will respond best to a grounded, common
sense approach. If you can surround your child with visible affection, a cosy, snug,
loving home, fill his ears with music and his eyes with beauty, he will bring peace
and harmony to your home for many years to come, as well as an unquestioning
love and loyalty in later life.
What to Expect
The Gemini child is born with a very high intelligence and will be into everything at
an extremely young age. He is highly resistant to any sort of confinement so
putting him into a baby-pen should only be done for very short periods; otherwise
this could lead to a sort of emotional depression.
He needs a variety of toys for stimulation. He is friendly, alert, fidgety and
extremely inquisitive, indeed a little precocious. You will probably notice his very
quick bird like movements and the fact that he has been born with very fast
reflexes. He will love to communicate both verbally and on paper. He will excel in
reading from a very young age. His hands will be quite sensitive, expressive and
very capable. He will probably love foreign languages since the need to express
himself and communicate naturally is very strong. He is easily able to multi-task.
On the negative side, he can be a real fidget and a nail biter. He is a born mimic
and is very capable of exaggerating the truth simply to make it more exciting and
to feed his very vivid imagination. He lacks patience sometimes and can be
unwilling to persist until something is thoroughly leaned. This means there is a
tendency to skim over knowledge without completely understanding it. He will find
punctuality hard because he can be so easily distracted and he will not be a very
good listener. Watch your phone bill because he will spend hours on it. He will also
amuse you with the sharpness of his wit and may well become a clever satirist
when he grows up.
Tips for Parents
When raising your Gemini child it is worth remembering how intelligent he is. Your
best course of action is to give him as much freedom and mental stimulation as
you possibly can. Provide an exciting, stimulating environment for him to learn and
grow up in. Read to him and challenge him with new ideas. Respect his abilities to
multi-task. If he is a typical Gemini he will never be satisfied with just one pursuit
at a time anyway.
When he does mature and has his fingers in many pies, you can smile and reflect
on his childhood years which were exactly the same. In some ways the Gemini
adult differs very little from the Gemini child. They will always keep you on your
toes and always keep you young.
What to Expect
The Cancer child is full of fears and phobias. He can even have a fit of the blues if it
rains too much. This child is extremely impressionable and very strongly
influenced by his early home environment. He will retain all his childhood
experiences whether good or bad. At times, he will be emotionally needy, prone to
mood swings and may become so sad that he will play for hours with an imaginary
friend. Some Cancer children are so shy they will not express their inner desires
to anyone. Yet, they love to be cuddled and adored. In their teenage years they can
be rebellious but generally their discipline is straightforward and they are easily
managed. Parents should remember, this sign is destined for leadership, no
matter how shy the child.
You will find your Cancer child able to weep for hours and really turn on the tears.
All that’s required are bucket loads of love, tenderness and sympathy. If this is not
forthcoming, your Cancer child will seek solitude later in life and will be in danger
of becoming a recluse.
He has the potential to grow into a patient and generous human being with fine
artistic qualities, but if denied sufficient emotional empathy, may turn out a
warped, bitter and twisted, silent, brooding soul. At school the Cancer child will
excel in History since he will seldom forget an important date from the past.
Tip for Parents
Since the Cancer child can so easily imagine hurts and slights that never existed
it’s best to let love find a way. A good old-fashioned spanking, if required, will do
the trick along with plenty of hugs and kisses and lots of expressions of affection .I
can’t stress the need for an abundance of affection in the early years of life.
Happy Cancer children run up enormous food bills but may use food to soothe hurt
feelings. Parents should also note that Cancer children like to work for pay. They
will be very careful with money and will enjoying saving it up. They may work their
way through college to help pay the bills.
In grown up times, you can look forward to some good jokes, contagious laughter,
tender concern with ill relatives and a gentleness towards animals if cruelly
treated .The Cancer child will always return home and treasures from past
memories of childhood will be forever locked in their hearts.
What to Expect
The typical Leo child will have a sunny, happy and playful disposition and he will be
very jolly, especially when he gets his own way. He is high-spirited and
enthusiastic, quite full of himself but inclined to be bossy with other children.
However there are two types of Leo children- the extrovert and the quieter more
In many ways Leo children can be quite difficult simply because they will need
gentle but continuous discipline throughout their formative years. He will be prone
to temper tantrums if he doesn’t get his own way and he will show off, be a bit
reckless and take chances. He can also be extremely lazy, and, if spoiled too
much, is in danger of becoming a bit of a tyrant
The best way forward is to give as much love and adoration as possible while also
balancing this with gentle but very firm boundaries. The Leo child loves adoration
and if he doesn’t get enough of it in childhood he will force the attention of others
onto himself in adulthood.
He will always enjoy challenges and will rebel against menial tasks. He can learn
very fast in school and will love taking on the role of the teacher or instructor
You can expect your Leo child to be very dramatic at all times so learn to take
some of the things he says with a pinch of salt.
Tips for Parents
Never scold him in public. Encourage his natural leadership qualities in every way
that you can. Make him aware that he can lose his dignity if he shows off too much
in front of others. Take care not to wound his pride and/or his ego and train him to
respect the rights of others.
The Leo child is not the easiest to raise. Give him an endless supply of kisses
coupled with fair but firm discipline. Appealing to his sense of vanity will get
excellent results. Where money is concerned, teach him to give some, spend some
and save some. Think of him as a caged lion and you as the lion tamer. Use both
love and affection to unlock his heart and he’ll always make you proud. Remember
he isn’t as brave on the inside as he appears on the outside. Build up his courage
and flatter his ego and he’ll be proudly strong for you.
What to Expect
The Virgo child will have a natural talent for acting so watch out for this gift as it
will become apparent at a very young age. Generally there will be little conflict
with your Virgo child and only a few tantrums. For the best part, he will be very
neat, tidy and cheerful. You will notice he can be quite shy with strangers and that
he has gentle manners.
In school Virgo children are often chosen as monitors and prefects because they
are totally ethical and completely alert. Don’t be surprised if he is teacher’s pet.
He will be very adaptable and love mundane chores which he will carry out with
honesty and care, paying attention to every minute detail.
On the negative side, Virgo children can be real worriers. They will be very
selective about which foods they eat and many Virgo children are described by
their parents as fussy eaters. Also they can be acutely sensitive in their teenage
years, especially with members of the opposite sex when dating. They will need
lots of physical affection when growing-up otherwise this could strongly affect
their perception of future relationships. Above all what they need are kisses and
hugs that are sincere.
Tips for Parents
The Virgo child will require absolute privacy and will notice immediately if his
private things are moved or have been tampered with. These children can be very
critical and it is a good idea to provide them with a kitten or a puppy so they can
learn the lessons of love by caring for something that is helpless and completely
dependent on them.
Although Virgo children are born with wisdom beyond their years, it is important
that when raising them you boost their imagination and their self-confidence.
The Virgo child is a true realist and will love all the educational toys you can buy,
but it is also important to provide some fantasy, and/or make-believe, maybe in
the form of fairy stories, so that these moments of fantasy can give them the
emotional balance they will need when they grow up.
What to Expect
The Libran child will be a really beautiful baby. It will have, for the most part, a
sweet expression and well-balanced features. Watch out because it will be a real
charmer and may well have a dimple on its chin.
As a child, he will be kind hearted and fair and an expert at softening a hard heart.
He could easily be musical, artistic, or both. He will be such a delight that, if you’re
not careful, you will find yourself pandering to his every whim, such is his charm.
He will love a pleasant atmosphere and hate tension of any sort. He is bright and
alert and will love any form of debate. He will always keep a confidence and is
absolutely trustworthy. He will hate gossiping. For the most part he will be tidy
because Libran children hate a messy house
On the negative side, he is absolutely hopeless at making a decision, useless at
making up his mind and he hates to be rushed. His sweet nature will be less than
sweet if you confuse him and push him into making decisions. He also has a lazy
streak but his mind will always seek out the truth. Watch out for a know-it-all
attitude in teenage years.
Tips for Parents
Libran children respond noticeably to colour schemes and noise levels. Your best
bet is to decorate your home in pastel colours, especially blues and keep the noise
levels down. Libran children pick up easily on family tensions. They thrive best in
an harmonious atmosphere.
Your best bet is to coddle him less and stimulate his natural curiosity. Listen to his
arguments which are based on logic and will always give both sides. Libran
children are sticklers for keeping any rules so you can lay down yours and be
confident they will be kept and you will be respected.
Never invade his privacy. Don’t feed him too many sweets. Appreciate his neatness
and cleanliness. He would only be less so if he is handled harshly. Provide him
with all the beauty and pleasantness that you can and be prepared to have your
bathroom monopolised for hours on end when he is a teenager. Feed him with
books and be prepared for lots of cases of puppy love.
What to Expect
The Scorpio baby will be born with a very strong body. As he grows up, you will
realise that he actually enjoys a good fight and has the right anatomy to be the
victor. Get used to his blunt sarcastic speech. This child won’t compromise.
He will show boundless loyalty to friends and loved ones, but he can exercise
revengeful anger if he feels he has been wronged. You can expect a sharp
penetrating mind. Look out for him being the chosen leader in many school
This child may try to unnerve you with his burning gaze. He can make you feel he is
boring holes into you but he will need constant and firm discipline. You must insist
that you are the boss otherwise he will learn how to control you. Stress he must
respect authority and make allowances for weaker people. He has a brilliant mind
and a magnetic personality. He is also blessed with rare courage and honesty
He is in danger from being infected by his own super ego, especially when he
glares so fiercely at you. Remember he will only learn from someone who is
stronger than him. If he fails to learn lessons in his youth, he could become a
stinging revengeful scorpion and/or a miserable grey lizard tortured by fears and
He has a great need for privacy. Scorpio children conceal their own thoughts but
are easily able to discover yours. They have a miraculous ability to withstand pain
and are wise beyond their years.
Tips for Parents
Be loyal to him and he will be loyal back. He needs to feel calm inside for he has
many passionate and intense emotions to deal with. He will be fascinated by drugs
and drawn to fire. In his future years he will be a great lover, yet you can steer him
away from promiscuity if you instil some traditional values in him for Scorpio
deeply respects the family circle.
He will be the best in his chosen field and although he will be outwardly very self-
sufficient, he will still need your support. Keep him physically active and mentally
challenged. Feed his passionate curiosity about science, literature, medicine and
sport. He has courage, strength and intelligence but he needs to be shown how to
love and be loved in return.
What to Expect
The Sagittarius child is a very curious child. He will learn to talk and to explore
things through asking endless questions. There’s a part of him that will never
really grow up. He has a desperate need to be liked and he will be like a happy,
playful miniature little clown. In early childhood, you can expect awkwardness and
clumsiness. He is particularly accident-prone.
He has a happy-go- lucky nature and he loves uncut honesty. He is friendly and
lively but will cry easily if he’s left alone for any length of time. He loves the sound
of laughter, talking and the warm reassurance of human voices. He also likes a
familiar, cosy and happy environment. Despite all of this he may remove himself
very early on in life from all family ties. Be prepared for this because he will hurt
you in later life.
He will give in only to logical commands from his parents and this is if you’re
completely fair and honest with him. This Jupiter boy will respect your rules and
respect you. However, if you are less than honest, be prepared for obstinacy and
disenchantment. The Sagittarian child can smell dishonesty a mile away.
He will puncture adult hypocrisy with his questions and see right through
deception. He has a strong need for freedom and will strike out early on his own.
To maintain your relationship with him, he must respect you for your honour and
tolerance. He hates narrow ideas and any form of prejudice.
Tips for Parents
Expect romance to rear its head early. He may even need special tutoring on the
birds and bees. Teach him economy because otherwise he’ll spend money like
water. Don’t be over generous because he could easily take advantage and
besides, it won’t teach him anything about the value of money.
Both sexes enjoy school because of their multiple faceted intelligence and great
curiosity which can make learning a fascinating game. However if the teaching is
dull and unimaginative and the routines become too monotonous and boring, he
may well drop out of school early and go off to work. Sagittarian youngsters
respond best to progressive educational methods. Even so, he is still inclined to be
restless and fanciful.
You can expect a deep and very serious interest in religion. He will question
dogma, faith and church membership, searching eternally for the truth. He is
independent and honest, a happy optimist who likes to keep cheerful and upbeat.
Have faith in his decency and in his dreams and then you may not lose him totally.
What to Expect
The Capricorn baby will look like an octogenarian when he is first born, but will
appear to grow younger and younger as he grows older. In old age all his baby
wrinkles will have totally smoothed out. He will have a strange maturity beyond his
years and be very self-contained as a child. You can expect him to be very sweet
but also strong-willed and positive in his tastes.
He will make his wishes known very definitely and will like routines. You will notice
that he organises his life into predictable patterns from quite a young age.
He will adapt easily to mealtimes and quite happily fit in with your potty training.
He won’t be interested at all in childish tricks.
He will like home life very much and have only one or two special friends. He will
be very responsible about homework and have a strong sense of duty. He will
pretend to be a responsible adult or a teacher and will enjoy painting, drawing and
listening to music. The Capricorn child likes to make practical things, something
that has a definite use and purpose.
Tips for Parents
This child won’t seek out the sunshine or fresh air, but should be encouraged to do
so because it’s good for him. He will be a very good scholar, thorough and careful
with his learning. Saturn gives Capricorn excellent powers of concentration and he
will be obedient, studious and reliable. Don’t worry if you feel he is a little too
studious. He is simply being true to himself.
He will be naturally timid, inclined to introversion and a real little bookworm.
However, don’t ever be deceived into thinking he is not ambitious for all he truly
desires to get to the top. Try to recognise this in your little dark horse. He will take
his time but he will reach the top for above all he seeks respect and authority. He
will have a very strongly developed sense of self-preservation
Around the opposite sex he will be quite bashful but very interested and he will
need lots of encouragement in dating. You can rely on your Capricorn child to be
polite to elders and very serious about his future. He will cling to his home and
family with honest devotion and will take care of his parents right into old age.
What to Expect
The Aquarius baby will seem to be born middle-aged. He is made of the raw
material of Uranus. He’ll be a quivering, sensitive, stubborn, independent mass of
invention and electrical impulse. His mental processes will be as fast as lightning.
His thoughts will vibrate like a high-frequency radio.
Most Aquarians wait until they’re much older to use their skills of invention, but
there are lots of Aquarian prodigies around. He loves to figure out mysteries, but
he can also be strongly negative. His final answer will be only be acceptable
because it’s one he’s found himself.
On the surface he may appear calm and sweetly docile but then suddenly turn
topsy-turvy. Expect anything. Aquarius children can be totally unpredictable,
lovable and often highly amusing because they are so full of contradictions
.Raising them and teaching them is a big responsibility.
Their minds combine fixed practicality with uncanny perception and sharp probing
logic. They love to do favours for friends. Once they find a dream they will hold on
to it. Normal career choices will not be for the Aquarian. He will want to be an
oceanographer, or ichthyologist or archaeologist a crocodile hunter or a tree
surgeon, nothing mundane. The odd thing is, Aquarian children can cause things
to happen simply by waiting and concentrating.
He will want to be out and about, not staying indoors
He will be absentminded, break bones, twist ankles, but also be a budding genius,
who won’t pay attention in class. He has a highly developed intuition.
Tips for Parents
The Aquarius child will need lots of physical activity otherwise his inclined inertia
could get harmful. He will love sports and this is an area where you can give a lot
of encouragement. Mentally he is a speed demon. He has empathy for birds,
nature and the sea but will prefer his own discoveries to organised activities.
Be alert to the fact that he may take path of least resistance Encourage him to
make his own decisions and act upon them.
Unspoken tension can disturb him deeply. He will have a multitude of friends and
lots of pals. He won’t be boy or girl crazy, just crazy. He may write hidden love
poetry He’s a humanitarian and will love all people. He will always have
What to Expect
This baby will be born with a wistful dreamy little look in his gentle eyes. He is a
sensitive little soul and will have a deep compassion and sympathy for others. As a
small baby, he will charm you half to death to get his own way. Look out for his
sweetest smiles and winning ways. He will always be light on his feet regardless of
The Pisces child will always be childish and dreamy even when he grows up. All
Piscean children and adults love a world of fancy and will enjoy diversions far
removed from everyday patterns, schedules and routines. He will be very
imaginative. He has boundless compassion, understanding of beauty, tolerance
imagination and gentleness.
On the negative side, this child won’t be forced into a routine. He can sleep all day
and stay awake all night He will eat only when’s he’s hungry and sleep only when
he’s tired. For you it will be very difficult because he won’t be ruled by a clock. At
the same time he will need lots of attention and appreciation but will require the
occasional moment of privacy.
Tips for Parents
Since your Pisces child won’t conform very easily to a laid down pattern, he may
find his time in school a bit problematic. You will notice that he favours English
literature. He will love words and poetry often enchants him. He may find Maths
hard but can grasp the abstract theories behind algebra and geometry.
The Pisces child will have deep wisdom and sympathetic understanding of
situation beyond his years. Despite this, he will need lots of support or he could
get depressed, and retreat into silent moody despair. Watch out for him dressing
up the truth.
You may have to provide emotional and practical support when he has trouble
conforming to social and scholastic demands that stifle his individuality. Your
friendly warm-hearted little Neptune child will need a cloak of protection against
the brutality of the world until he grows up and can eventually cope with the real
world of war, crime, depravation, illness and hypocrisy.
believe astrology can give some powerful insights into both the personality
and character of a person born under a certain astrological sign. Of course
there are other factors at play (place of birth, parental influences, and
environmental influences) but it is easily the most important single consideration.
In my experience, the solar sign will be between eighty and ninety per cent
accurate in character analysis. The solar sign is a particular zone of the zodiac in
which the sun was located at the moment of birth, an exact position taken from a
set of tables called an ephemeris calculated by astronomers. If you were born on
the first or last day of any solar sign you’d have to know your exact birth time and
longitude and latitude of your birth place to judge whether or not the sun had
changed signs by that hour.
The stars incline us but they do not compel us. Most of us are carried along by the
influences of the planets and our electromagnetic birth patterns as well as other
environmental influences and the will of our parents. By using our free will the
soul can rise above the afflictions of its birth-chart and learn how to dominate
moods, how to change character and how to control its environment. This is where
my predictions for future trends can prove so useful and for new parents,
invaluable for a deeper insight into their child’s inherent birthright.
