Organisations & Sources of Information

If you are interested in finding out more about astrology - whether you are a veteran astrologer or a complete newbie - I recommend the Skyscript website ( www.skyscript.co.uk ) run by Deborah Houlding. It has pretty much everything you could need, including a well-informed and friendly 'forum' section.

If you want to get in touch with me, you're welcome - just email me. The email address is 'info' then the 'at' sign then 'astrozero.co.uk'. (I'm sorry for spelling it out in this rather unwieldy manner but it seems this is necessary nowadays - email addresses on websites are harvested by spam-bots and the owners are subsequently deluged with spam.)
