Astrologer Patrick Arundell
Hello, thank you for joining me. I was born in Stonyhurst, Lancashire, England. A Sun Aquarius, I also have the Moon, Venus, Chiron and IC in the sign of Aquarius.
With an Ascendant in Libra and Uranus, the ruler of astrology, Conjunct my Midheaven, the part of our Natal Horoscopes linked to career. I also have the penetrative and psychological planetary angle or aspect of Pluto Trine Mercury, which gives me I hope a natural instinct for research and analysis.
I have been a professional astrologer for over 25 years and though self-taught my interest first began when I was still at High School. That interest became, over time, a burning quest to understand what made myself and others tick.
A Diploma qualified management career initially ensued resulting in the role of an Operations Controller managing 800 people, followed by running my own small business consultancy. But astrology was like a clarion call, and eventually I became compelled to study in greater depth before leaving business behind and taking the plunge as a professional astrologer.
My work is now distributed through 200 newspapers, magazines and websites worldwide including New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, South Africa, Bahrain, Canada and the USA. In the UK I write for The Metro Daily Newspaper and I am the lead astrologer for the UK Press Association. I have written for Chat and Pick Me Up and for 3 Mobile and Vodaphone. Clients have also included Proctor and Gamble and Leo Burnett. My work has also been translated into Russian and Spanish. My Horoscope videos have received 30 Million views.
I am a member of the Astrological Association of Great Britain and believe it is highly important to add credibility to astrology’s standing in the general media. As we have seen with urban myth of Ophiuchus the 13th Zodiac Sign that the benefits of astrology do need to be stood up for.
Astrology may be derided by some, but I hope my background in a conventional business environment demonstrates that my move into astrology came from the sincerely held belief that astrology is a wonderful tool for greater personal understanding and the greater promotion of personal and inter-relationship harmony. Quite simply, it works. Many people who knock astrology don't truly know what it entails.
I live in the Medieval town of Shrewsbury, in the West Midlands where I have resided for 30 years. I have been a lifetime fan of Swindon Town Football Club and Swindon Speedway. My other interests include cooking, walking and music. I have also avidly followed modern jazz for many years and modern RNB.
I married my wife, the beautiful Alyssa in January 2019 and have a wonderful son Jason, who is 43. My "companion" for many years was a much-loved half Burmese black cat, called Ted, who had three legs. Sadly, Ted died aged 12 of acute liver disease on 20th October, 2009. Ted will never be forgotten, and will always be loved and cherished.
