Brighton astrologer – available for consultations and readings

Tim Burness – astrologer based in Brighton, UK

Based in Brighton (UK), I have run a busy astrological consultation and teaching practice at several points over the last thirty years, working with people from all walks of life.

With or without a face-to-face consultation, a careful in-depth analysis of the birth chart can be used as a guide to help us understand our psychological patterns and life choices. In keeping with other modern Western astrologers, my approach is to help empower the individual to become more fully responsible for his or her actions – “The stars incline, they do not compel.”

Astrologer Tim Burness

Brief astrological biography

Based in Brighton (UK), Tim Burness has run a busy astrological consultation and teaching practice at several points over the last thirty years, working with people from all walks of life.

After being surprised by the extraordinary accuracy of a computer forecast in 1986, Tim began intensive study, drawing on a very wide range of sources. These included seminars by the respected psychological astrologers Liz Greene and Howard Sasportas in London, coursework with the Faculty of Astrological Studies and the books of internationally acclaimed American astrologer Stephen Arroyo.

After interpreting many charts of friends, family and the famous, Tim gained massive experience in a short time from several years spent working regularly at psychic fairs and Mind-Body-Spirit festivals. Hundreds of face-to-face astrological consultations and personal feedback gave Tim a great opportunity to further refine what works and what doesn’t.

Since his teens, Tim has also explored a wide number of other related spiritual interests. These have included courses in Shamanic Consciousness and Therapeutic Intervention at the University of Sussex, a large number of intensive self-awareness courses and involvement with various forms of Buddhism.

As a sample of Tim’s work, here is a brief interpretation of Donald Trump’s birth chart.

Astrology is a huge subject. Tim believes it really comes into its own when natal astrology (from the time, date and place of birth) is used as a guide to help us understand our life choices, psychological patterns and ongoing changes. This goes a lot, lot deeper than newspaper Sun sign horoscopes.

Bowie Astrological Assocaition article

Astrological Journal 2016, major article on David Bowie

Tim has been featured in The Independent newspaper and on several local radio stations. More recently he has written articles for the magazine of the UK Astrological Association, including a major article on David Bowie’s birth chart. A further piece explored the astrology of old friend Sir Harry Kroto, the Nobel Prize-winning scientist who helped discover C60, a new carbon molecule. Tim is interested in raising the profile of accessible and intelligent astrology as a tool for personal, social and spiritual transformation. For a brief period, he was Vice-Chairman of the Brighton Astrology Circle and is also a musician and care worker. He was born with a Gemini Sun, Virgo Moon, Aquarius Ascendant and a rather tricky Mars-Jupiter-Neptune T-square, amongst other things.

An introduction to the astrological birth chart

Russell Brand's chart

Russell Brand’s chart

The birth chart (different to newspaper horoscopes) of a person or event can be described as a kind of road map or blueprint. For an individual, it shows the soul’s possible journey and the types of experiences and patterns that you are going to encounter along the way. In one sense, it shows your destiny and fate, your unique possible contribution to life. What it does not show, is how you deal with these patterns. In this way, we are each responsible for creating our own reality by our choices.

A person’s individuality is of course also influenced by their genetic make-up, the society/culture/religion they were born into, the social and economic circumstances, and so on. Two people may have very similar charts, both showing enormous possibility but only one may fulfil this for the reasons above.

Looking at the chart, the familiar Sun sign of the zodiac is represented by a circle with a dot in the middle. This may or may not be very important in the whole of the chart, one of several reasons why people are often not typical examples of their Sun sign. Each of the other planets are shown on the chart by symbols with numbers next to them. Using the chart as a psychological map, each planet represents a different part of the personality.

Due to their position in the chart, we may be more or less comfortable with some parts of our personality than others – I know I am! In fact it is the challenging relationships between planets (such as 90 degree angles, known as square aspects) that give us the greatest opportunity for achievement. People with “easy” charts may struggle more to find purpose and meaning in life than those with more obvious problems.

At its best, a balanced interpretation of the astrological birth chart can be a healing experience, giving one a sense of belonging to life – a sense that it is actually okay to be who one is, and a sense that however often it may appear otherwise, life is unfolding exactly as it is supposed to.

Many people know that astrology is of course irrational pseudoscientific nonsense and not to be taken seriously. Having studied and worked with it extensively for over 25 years, I came to a very different conclusion a long long time ago!
