interest and a growing involvement with children's activity
books he also studied psychology and in particular child
psychology. Wrote "Sun Child Moon Child" a
study of parent/child relationships, "Little Stars"
a series of books for parents based on the astrology
of the child's first 7 years. The latter series were

with his wife Caroline Smith on her Elemental Tarot
and Moon Oracle writing the books and contributing the
astrological content. An interest in the first computers
in the late seventies led to the creation of some of
the first computer software for astrologers. In the
80's John worked with astrologer Tad
Mann producing software for the Logarithmic Timescale,
a new system of astrologocal timing based on the work
of Rodney Collin. Throughout the last twenty years he

Relaxations are cooking ( produced 3 cookbooks back
in the sixties for Determined Productions Inc.) and
music, playing both blues and flamenco guitar. Has four
children and five grandchildren.His
love of creativity and interest in the learning period
of childhood combine in what he feels is his unique
approach to astrology. To rediscover the child in all
of us is where John is sure we can find our own personal
truth. Throughout life, in order to come up to other
people's expectations we shift tracks and take unwanted
roads far, far away from our real selves and the honest
happy and creatively uninhibited little person we once
were. John's astrology endeavours to explore, discover
and reclaim that spontaneity, creativity and happiness.
