I also offer here astrological counseling and readings (plus Astrological Tutorials, Workshops and Beginners and Advanced Courses, CD Recording, Synastry or Relationship Readings, Re-location Charts, Baby Charts’ Booklets, Original Art Horoscopes, etc.). I’ve provided these services since 1985 to my local community, in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Australia, within the Mount Warning‘s one million years old caldera (Wollumbin, in aboriginal language).
I hope your response will inspire me to keep on sharing this fascinating journey.
My name is Paola Emma. I moved from Italy to Australia, with my partner Li, in 1982. I was interested in astrology while still a high school student, but only in 1979 I began studying it in earnest, with ever-growing intensity and passion. I am learning more every day, because there is no end to learning with Astrology.
After studying ancient history and psychology at the University of Rome for four years, I dropped out and started my inner journey, via India and , eventually, all the way to Australia. I have a background in Computers, having worked for four years for Olivetti, Italy, in the early Seventies, when the first word processors and computers were just coming out.
I started practicing Astrology in 1985. And, Since 1989, I have held many Beginners and Advanced Courses; privately tutoring many more students. I’ve had the opportunity to cast and interpret hundreds of Natal and Progressed Charts.
In 2007 I finally decided to take the exams with the FAA (Federation of Australian Astrologers), receiving for my efforts:
¨ the FAA Diploma (earlier known as the Practitioner’s Certificate).
¨ The Silver Medal ‘Doris Greaves’ Award’ for obtaining the highest marks in Australia in the FAA Interpretation Exam.
¨ The Silver Medal ‘Allan Johnson’s Award’ for obtaining the highest marks in Australia for the FAA Calculation Exam.
¨ The ‘John Clarke’s Memorial Scholarship’.
One of my essay from the FAA Dynamic Exam was published in the FAA Journal.
Taking the exams has been a rewarding experience, making me especially aware of the vastness and depth of Astrology in its many branches and stems.
If you are serious about Astrology I recommend preparing for similar qualifications in Australia or any other country; it is a worth the effort.
I have self published Students Booklets, Moon Calendars and Diaries since the year 2000.
I have also been a regular contributor to our local newsletter The Uki News for a number of years and have been writing for the Byron Bay quarterly magazine ‘The Art of Healing‘, which regularly publish my articles, since 2006. Click here for Articles. For a while, few years back, I weekly contributed my astrological thoughts to a local community radio, CoolFM.
To contact me for Readings, on CD or in person, Baby Booklets etc., please post a comment. Your comment, unless it has to do with the articles or posts, will not be published on my site. I will answer privately to any Reading request.
I consider it a great opportunity to be able to connect now, while still living in our bush dwelling. on limited solar power, to the astrological network the Internet is making available to all of us. I’ll try my best to link my site to others I love and that have helped me to deepen my appreciation and enjoyment of Astrology.
My wish is to promote a better understanding of Astrology as a spiritual discipline and a counselling tool, thus helping to dispel its time-long identification with hocus-pocus and fortune-telling.
