How to Be an Astrologer?

Astrologer Claire Petulengro’s new books, Diet Signs and Health Signs explore the link between astrology, diet and health. To find out why Taureans have sensitive throats and how Librans can shed the extra kilos they’re prone to carrying, plus much more, get your hands on Diet Signs & Health Signs. Available from good book stores.

When did you get involved in astrology?

When I was young I thought everybody had ‘feelings’ about things. I was brought up in a family of clairvoyants so I didn’t think I was any different to anyone else until I went to school. That’s when I began to realise I was different.

My mother taught me to trust my instincts and let me give readings to her old clients. When I was six years old my uncle Leo taught me the art of palmistry and used to pay me pocket money to learn the lines on the hand! I would stay up until all hours learning the names of the lines and was giving professional tarot card readings by the time I was 12.

What is it that attracted you to astrology?

It was always in my blood and part of my soul. It is part of who I am.

What did you do before you became a full-time professional astrologer?

Everything! My mum and dad made sure I tried lots of different things, even though I was travelling to LA and all over the world giving readings.

I started working professionally in my teens. At 16 I appeared on a children’s program (I read the horoscopes to kids) and I even had my own radio show where people would call in and I’d solve their problems through the art of astrology. I have a very deep and husky voice and so the listeners thought I was a lot older! .

How did you turn your hobby into a full-time occupation?

I met a lady called Melanie Cantor who wanted to manage me and said it would be silly not to get into the media and TV. As a little girl I always wanted to be on telly and took to it like a duck to water. We got on so well, (she is a Cancerian and I love other water signs) and I knew she’d make sure I didn’t do things that were corny or would make me the object of ridicule.

I have worked for the Sun newspaper, the Mirror and have appeared on many TV shows. I now work for The Daily Express and The Daily Star every day, OK Magazine every week, Company Magazine every month. I’m also MTV and VH1’s astrologer and I work full time for Open Television and I am dying to write a fourth book. I’m a workaholic but I still manage to get my husband’s dinner on the table every night! I even make all my own baby food for our son Paris.

How can we incorporate astrology in our every day lives?
By learning what your weaknesses are and where your strengths lie. After all prevention is better than cure, don’t you agree?

How do you use astrology in your own life?
I cheat, I use clairvoyance as well. If I meet someone and don’t like them then I won’t do business with them. I’m in the very lucky position that I don’t have to do all of the work that is offered. I just happen to love everything I currently do. Luckily, plotting charts for daily horoscopes means I know when there are problems coming up. It’s simple, when Mercury is in retrograde, I pack up and go shopping!

How to Be an Astrologer? (Cont’d)

How can we incorporate astrology in our every day lives?

By learning what your weaknesses are and where your strengths lie. After all prevention is better than cure, don’t you agree?How did you come up with the idea for the books, Diet Signs & Health Signs?

Each part of the body is ruled by a different star sign. For example, Taureans are prone to throat problems so should avoid foods that are overly mucus producing. I worked with top nutrition and diet experts who were amazed at the results of tests I conducted. I designed the meal plans for Diet Signs and then had health experts check them to make sure they were healthy and balanced.

Health Signs on the other hand, is about maintaining a healthy mind. It also deals with herbs that you can take when you are ill or just to stay healthy. I wanted to make people more aware of how to stay fit both mentally and physically.

What star sign are you? Are you typical to this sign?

I am a Scorpio and yes I am very typical of my sign. If I do something then I get obsessed by it, as you can see! On the downside I get jealous if I don’t get to spend enough time with my husband who is also a Scorpio.

I get a lot of fan mail and get to go to a lot of fancy parties but if it all ended tomorrow I wouldn’t worry. Rob, (my husband) and I make everything an adventure and when he comes home at night he still says, ‘get me a drink darling,’ so I have my feet very firmly on the ground.

How do you use astrology in your own life?

I cheat, I use clairvoyance as well. If I meet someone and don’t like them then I won’t do business with them. I’m in the very lucky position that I don’t have to do all of the work that is offered. I just happen to love everything I currently do. Luckily, plotting charts for daily horoscopes means I know when there are problems coming up. It’s simple, when Mercury is in retrograde, I pack up and go shopping!
