The Greek Island Summer School – Astrology & Tarot
May, June and September 2015
The Summer School in Nidri, on the beautiful Ionian island of Lefkada, provides the perfect study/holiday combination. We’re just a three hour flight from the UK with a transfer time of 45 minutes to the island that is joined to the mainland by a causeway.
On the course pages on this site you’ll find on the drop down menu the highly descriptive and personal feedback from the many students who have taken part over the last 13 years. Click on testimonials.

Scroll down to find more details about this year’s courses –
• 11 May – The Crystal Zodiac with Judy Hall. Suitable for all levels.
• 8 June – Be a Better Tarot Reader. Suitable for all levels.
• 8 September – Synastry: The Astrology of Relationships. Suitable for students who have completed any kind of beginners course.
All courses comprise 17 hours of study time and here’s how the schedule operates for each week:
Flights arrive in Preveza throughout the day so you’ll be here anywhere between early afternoon and early evening. As there are no ferry links the coach or taxi transfer from the airport to Nidri is just 45 minutes. I meet and greet everyone and organize a group meal for the evening if required or recommend places to go.
The study hours are designed to finish at 3.30pm each day so that you have plenty of time to sunbathe, swim, siesta before meeting up again for the evening meals.
Study hours 11.00 – 1.00
Lunch/swim at the villa 1.00 – 2.00
Study hours 2.00 – 3.30
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
Study hours 10.00 – 12.30
Lunch/swim at the villa 12.30 – 1.30
Study hours 1.30 – 3.30
Free Day for relaxation or exploration – boat trips, car hire – or book a private reading.
Free day and last night group meal.
Return flights home.
You can also read more about how I came to Greece and the experiences that led to setting up the Greek Island Summer School on this link, my guest blogger spot on Avril Price’s new website –
The Greek Island Summer School courses are all about combining the fascinating subjects of astrology or tarot, or both, with a week’s holiday on this beautiful Ionian island of Lefkada. There are all kinds of accommodation to choose from in the village of Nidri – contact me to find out more and about the UK tour operators who do summer package deals.
2015 will be the 14th year of the Summer School and you can book to join a group or do private tuition by arrangement from May to October.

All courses are Sunday flights from the UK, with return flights on the following Sunday. I’m now taking bookings for the following courses:
11 May 2015
The Crystal Zodiac
(13 of 20 places available)
This is a fantastic opportunity to work with crystals expert Judy Hall who has been a past life therapist and karmic astrologer for over 40 years. Judy is also a healer and psychic as well as an internationally acclaimed author and her books have been translated into fifteen languages. She recently appeared in the Watkins Review of the one hundred most spiritually influential authors. Find out more about Judy’s work on her website:
The Crystal Zodiac is a course based on Judy’s bestselling book of the same name. Judy will teach how crystals and astrology can help you to understand and heal the past and move forward into the life your soul has planned. All students will need to send their own birth data in advance of the course – date, place of birth and time of birth as accurately as possible – so that I can prepare everyone’s individual horoscope. Throughout the course you will be working on your own chart, specifically in relation to your Sun sign, your Moon sign and your Ascendant.
Plenty of time is being factored in for experiential work on your own chart but you do not need to be an advanced student. Judy and I will both be working with everyone throughout the week to ensure that the course material and chart interpretations are tailored to meet all individual levels. Judy will also be using the Zodiac Pack images to create a visual chart so that people can have the experience of sitting in their chart, feeling the energies and holding the crystals that will help them to heal blockages and imbalances.
Suitable for all levels.
This course is already booking up fast, so contact me direct firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to reserve a place and also for details of flight and accommodation from around £300.00. The course fee of £295.00 for the week includes lunch and all teas, coffees and soft drinks on the four study days, and all transport from the village of Nidri up to Villa Jorgos where the course will be held. No hidden extras.
8 June 2015
Be a Better Tarot Reader
(8 of 10 places available)
Discover how the tarot really works, learn the traditional and modern day meanings of the 78 cards and how to choose and use the best spreads to answer all life questions relating to love, vocation, guidance and purpose.
Suitable for all levels.
7 September 2015
Synastry: The Astrology of Relationships
(7 of 10 places available)
Discover how your horoscope holds the keys to understanding the nature of your relationships. What type of partner will you meet and when? Why do you connect with one person but not another? Learn how comparing your horoscope to another’s describes your points of both conflict and compatibility. You will need some familiarity with signs/planets/houses so suitable for students who have completed any kind of beginners astrology course.
The Greek Island Summer School is ideal for those travelling solo.
Although some students come along in pairs, most in fact come alone, to seek out the company of like-minded people and enjoy the sun and fun of the beautiful Greek island of Lefkada. You never have to be on your own, unless you wish to be, and optional group meals are organised for every evening.
Beginners / Refreshers
There may not be the space to run this course this year in Greece. However, there is a possibility of a London workshop around Easter time or in the summer so if this is of interest to you just let me know and I’ll keep you posted.
If you have a particular area of astrology or tarot that interests you I am always open to ideas. Just get in touch and let me know what you would like to study, and if you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced level.
‘Be Your Own Astrologer’ by Joanna Watters
Cico Books 2015
Everyone knows their Sun sign, but this is actually just one part of your personal horoscope. This book is designed to show you how astrology really works and is also a “cookbook”, offering a “take” on all the planets in each sign. This means that you can read about your Moon sign, your Mercury sign, your Venus sign and so on, and assemble all the astrological parts in order to understand the whole. You can then move on to study the horoscope in action, comparing your birth chart to the movement of the planets, in order to reveal the key events of your life in the past, present and future.
I loved writing this book as it was my chance to write up all my personal findings. You won’t find these interpretations in any other astrological literature – all the examples are taken directly from my own client work and research over the last 30 years, including stacks of celebrities known to us all from the worlds of film, literature, sport, politics and monarchy.
Chapter 1 – Sun Signs
Chapter 2 – The Planets through the Signs
Chapter 3 – The Houses and the Ascendant (or Rising Sign)
