Are You
the World?

The Philosophy

My work with Astrology has always involved career consulting.
It seemed to me that if people could find their unique Usefulness,
their personal Gift to the world, they would find fulfillment,
both personally and spiritually.

This is what brings durable happiness


However, in the early days of my work, I soon discovered that my clients & students were hindered by a subtle self-sabotage that was presenting from their deeper levels of mind, masked as ‘unconscious anxiety’—this is not uncommon!

Being a problem-solver by nature, I set about finding reasons and solutions for this issue. 


It became obvious to me that there was a correlation between how great our potentials and aspirations were for our work in the outer world, with how great the anxiety was that we felt on the inside.

So, in a way, the anxiety was initially a good sign!
But of course, we need to restore inner peace. 

As with all truly effective systems, I found that it is through the combining of several tools that our goals can be supported and fulfilled. But this must begin with awareness.

The Central Tool: Yogacara Astrology

Sanskrit pronunciation of Yogācāra: ‘c’ as in ‘church‘.
‘a’ usually as ‘ah’ and fully pronounced when written as  ā.
If at the end of a word, ‘a’, with no diacritical mark, is only very subtly half-pronounced.

  • What I had begun in 1986 evolved into an advanced system of astrological interpretation, which I have developed further for the 21st century, and presently for our current paradigm. I have labelled this Yogacara Astrology.
  • As a system of vibrational frequencies, Yogacara Astrology details the various types of consciousness you operate within during various moments of your day.
  • I have developed this astonishing tool organically, through working extensively, one-to-one, with live clients and students. (My original personal sessions lasted for 6 to 10 hours—alas, a feat I can no longer manage! Hence, the triple-session program I have now designed to accomplish the same results.)

Unique Value

  • Yogacara Astrology is derived from its integration with the treasure of Buddhist psycho-philosophy & ethics, bringing a positive sanity to what is found in your birth-chart;
  • Some Taoist considerations for bringing wholeness through your inner life and outer environment; acknowledging the fluctuating tides in your life;
  • Thousands of asteroids now provide the body-text of your birth-chart, with the planets (in my view) now relegated to being ‘chapter headings’;
  • Deeper spiritual evaluations through my exclusive research of the 8 Transneptunian Points (only discovered in the 1920s).
  • Plus my own life-experience over six decades, and varied independent studies and research.

The Elements of the Bodhimind Program

More Layers of
Support for You:

  • Flower essence therapy (see my bodhimindessences.com website for details) which can help to ‘rewire’ your brain.
  • RedgateSpace is system I have integrated with your astrology chart through the use of the Taoist Bagua principles applied to your home and work spaces.
    And this also now includes your cyber-spaces. I can create a website for you that is in harmony with your own astrological signatures and your highest aspirations and abilities.
  • Bodhimind Reiki courses, though not for everyone, can stimulate or enhance compassionate attitudes, intuition, and inner healing.
  • Progress Sessions. After at least the first Yogacara Astrology consultation, I can also be available for sessions of 15 minutes to 2 hours as a reality check for pre-approval of your business cards, letterheads, important documents, etc, that could possibly be subtly sabotaged—it is amazing what we can’t see, ourselves, especially in regard to our own subconscious minds.

Yogacara Astrology can reveal the exceptional life purpose you can achieve, emerging in detail, almost in 3-D, right from your chart!

And once you discover, through comprehensive Astrological analysis, what subconscious processes are entrenched in your brain, and why they are there, the path to higher achievement can become visible and possible.

So why is this tool not in common use?

Sadly, the term ‘Astrology’ often evokes a plethora of negative (if not down-right rude) reactions from people in Westernised countries. . . Why? . . . Tabloids, of course.

I am happy to report
I have never authored
a ‘Sun-Sign’ column!
And I never will!

Please understand this:
Sun-Sign columns and Sun-Sign prediction reports are
NOT based on anything real!

There is a technique for writing those things, but it is a bogus process. Your birthchart is your DNA. It is personal to you alone. There are definitely influences from the Earth’s field that can affect you in real-time, but the particular effects you’ll feel, and can utilise, are based on many factors pertinent to YOU alone.

Some obviously security-conscious astrologers who should know better, or perhaps fame-seeking pseudo-astrologers, have found fame via Sun-Sign columns; and with unfortunate results. Although, more positively, there are (a scant few) astrologers attempting to sprinkle some wisdom via the tabloid process.

But such an abuse of this precious and ancient resource creates a never-ending downward spiral in the diminution of Astrology as a genuine science.

Your life is always in your own hands

You can have the most magnificent potential as your personal life purpose,
but if you don’t put in the work, yourself, that potential will be wasted.

To understand your inherent purpose, the reason you incarnated,
is to be empowered to achieve it sooner, rather than later,
and with greater confidence.
Yogacara Astrology is a unique tool for this purpose,
and can explain more than you could imagine.

Books & Newsletter


Since 1998, I have been researching and writing a large series of books to hopefully change some minds about Astrology and Purpose. I am planning to start rolling out the iBooks, Kindle, Kobo, etc, versions (thank heavens for self-publishing!) in late 2018. And one of them in the series will be periodically free in the ebook versions (Amazon has an aversion to permafree ebooks!). Paper versions will also be available to buy online for most of the books shortly after.

Being a member of my mailing list will give you advanced notice on their release dates and some exclusive introductory discounts. Plus you may find some helpful or interesting information in the newsletters (this will not be a flood of emails in your inbox!).

You can subscribe to my Exceptional Purpose Newsletter (formerly the Bodhimind News) via this button. (And Unsubscribing anytime is easy.) Your email address is of course never deliberately shared with anyone apart from me. My mailing list is electronically controlled by the good people at MailChimp.

After registering (it’s free) you will also be able to download a copy of my Insight Magazine article “Cult or Consciousness: A Global Ultimatum” (about 2,000 words), written in 2007 (with a small early 2008 addition after our Prime Minister’s Australia Day Apology to our Indigenous people), but not published until April 2008, explaining both the previous global astrological era (from 1995 to 2007) and this current one (2008 to 2024), highlighting the big changes that were yet to come at the time of writing, from an astrological perspective.

Many of the issues mentioned are already happening now (including the rise of right-wing ‘authoritarian’ cult figures such as Donald Trump), and we are only half-way through. This article explains why and how we can use this time to advantage.
