Mark Jones is an astrologer, teacher, Psychosynthesis therapist and hypnotherapist working with clients and students throughout the world. Mark’s first book; Healing the Soul: Pluto, Uranus and the Lunar Nodes, explains in detail his astrological method. His second book; The Soul Speaks: the Therapeutic Potential of Astrology, fuses Mark’s experience as a transpersonal psychotherapist with astrology to outline the transformative potential of an astrological reading. In addition, Mark has authored chapters in Astrology: the New Generation; Transpersonal Astrology; and Insights into Evolutionary Astrology.
Mark, who has lived and worked in Bristol, England for many years, is recently married, to his long-time partner, graphic artist and illustrator Clare Phillips, and will soon be moving to Wales with a view to beginning a family. Mark has a degree in English and American Literature from Warwick University and an M.A. in creative writing from Manchester University.
Mark’s astrological studies began in his early twenties when studying Kabbalistic Astrology with Warren Kenton. Concurrently, Mark’s democratic vision of spiritual development was supported by participation in the Open Mystery School of Dr William Bloom. By 2002, Mark had graduated from Psychosynthesis training through the Bristol-based Synthesis, an offshoot of the Psychosynthesis Trust, as well as from Noel Tyl’s Master’s Astrology Program and the Jeffrey Green school of Evolutionary Astrology. For the latter organisation, Mark became the principal teacher in the U.K.---teaching three schools in 2003-05. Since that time, Mark has taught extensively in North America and now teaches throughout the world.
From 15 years in private practice as a psychotherapist and astrologer---what has now been over 10,000 hours of client work---Mark has developed a model of transformational astrological counselling in which he works with individuals after the initial natal chart reading to support achievement of their true potential.
Mark is available for readings, astrology tuition training, and astrological counselling. Additionally, he has developed many resources for students including a foundation course in Evolutionary Astrology, a Counselling Skills for Astrologers program, and downloadable workshop recordings.
