"A great revolution in just a single

individual will  help achieve a change in

the destiny of an entire society, and further will cause a change in the destiny of humankind"   Daisaku Ikeda

"One's actions in previous existences are all engraved in and contained in this lifetime. The causes of our present suffering or joy, happiness or misery all lie in our own past actions. But Nichiren Buddhism enables us to fundamentally reform our destiny. When we truly base ourselves on Buddhism's view of life's eternity we realise the first thing we need to change is how we live in the present. In Nichiren Buddhism change arises from the depths of our being. Strong pure vitality abundantly wells forth. The iron chains of destiny are cut, and our original identity, the fresh and robust world of Buddhahood appears"

The birth chart - our karmic blueprint

I've chosen these inspiring quotes by Buddhist philosopher Daisaku Ikeda whose writings have inspired me, and given me the courage and hope to continuously challenge myself. Along with my practice of Buddhism, i have had a longstanding fascination with Astrology and Metaphysics, and Eastern Philosophy and forms of healing. This has included 'Reiki' for which I received attunements at level 1 & 2 ( hands on and distance healing).

How Astrology Helps...

Having researched and applied the insights I've gained in situations with people, I've found Astrology to be a powerful tool to identify psychological patterns and experiences. It's an invaluable lens enabling one to gain clarity, which in turn enables one to accept one's unique purpose and potential. In revealing a blueprint of our karmic influences it symbolically provides a framework for looking at patterns and potential challenges, keeping in mind our ability to tolerate and transform all aspects of our lives, and to fulfil our highest potential.  Identifying collective, or planetary influences allows us to see which area of our lives is pressing to be transformed - hence the importance of time. At our core lies the unlimited freedom of the 'Amala' state, or 9th consciousness, and a direct way to access this wisdom and hope fill life-state is to chant 'Nam-myoho-renge-kyo'

I enjoy helping people to gain insight into their lives. This involves seeing their lives as part of a drama in which they are the protagonist with a unique story to enact, and the ability to steer a course in the best possible direction, gaining clarity within themselves and in outer life. The archetypal symbols of the planets unfold particular myths that can create meaning in an individual's quest to gain a deeper understanding of their unique purpose in life. There's also the potential to look at early emotional experiences, conditioning, and relationships.
