Phoebe left an academic career to follow her passion and become an astrologer.
After university, with a BA in English and Philosophy and an MA in English (University of Reading), she went to Germany to work as a lecturer in English at Hanover University, where she taught English language and literature for twenty years. Astrology, however, had always been her passion, and in 1985 she left English teaching to become a full-time professional astrologer. She continued to work in Germany from 1985-96 counseling, teaching astrology classes, holding workshops, and giving public talks in Hannover, Kiel, Augsburg, Munich and Rosenheim.
In 1986 she brought out her astrological board game ‘Lebensrad’, and the book ‘Die Aufgaben des Herkules’ (Burk Verlag). 1993 saw the publication of a second board game ‘Die Wendeltreppe’ and ‘Das Orakelbuch’ (Burk Verlag). In 1997 she returned to England, and since then has been working as an astrologer in Brighton and Hove.
Her latest book 'Inside the Cosmic Mind: Archetypal Astrology and the new Cosmology' (Floris Books, August 2014) presents a clear and logical explanation of how astrology works, combining ancient wisdom with new scientific ideas to create a foundation for a modern archetypal approach to astrology. Her books and games were created as part of her mission to spread the appreciation and understanding of astrology, which is still rejected by a wide section of the population.
In 2007 she published her first book in English ‘Hercules’ Labours: the Evolutionary Path round the Zodiac’ (Treetongue) an improved and updated version of ‘Die Aufgaben des Herkules’. And this was followed in 2008 by a fictional treatment of the twelve astrological archetypes, ‘Virtual Lives: the Animated Zodiac’ (Treetongue). Her latest book Inside the Cosmic Mind: Archetypal Astrology and the new Cosmology (Floris Books, August 2014) explores astrology from a new philosophical point of view. Her books and games were created as part of her mission to spread the appreciation and understanding of astrology, which is still rejected by a wide section of the population.
In addition Phoebe is a meditator on the Osho path, holds a qualification in counselling, and has also trained as a past-life regression therapist. In 2001 she met John Kapp, to whom she is now married, and they founded together a health centre in Hove, at present called Essence.
She has a grown-up son and daughter as well as a grandson and three granddaughters.
