ere are some genuine comments from my clientele. I asked them for their positive
thoughts on what I do to share with the uninitiated and these are some of the
I had a one-to-one consultation with Pete Watson at the end of last year that
proved extremely beneficial in instigating clarity in my mind about the many
turbulent events happening in my life over the last couple of years.
One way to describe such a consultation would be to simply imagine that you have
poured out your life and soul to someone and now it was their chance to speak, to put
things into perspective, to rationalise, to understand, and to reassure you that you
are not mad but purely under Saturn's return! The most astonishing thing is that Pete
never met me before and yet he knew exactly what I was going through and how I felt
without me having to say a word… Bliss!
Everybody needs some sort of support in their lives, be it emotional, mental, and
physical yet astrology holds the key to a different type of fundamental
support that impacts on every aspect of your being. There are signs and gentle
nudges in life to get you on the right path and Pete, messenger and interpreter,
can either re-confirm what you know deep down is right, show you a different viewpoint
totally, or in turn address those issues to which you may turn a blind eye.
He is not there to tell me what to do but to let me know when the climate is right,
so I know whether to bring a beach towel or an umbrella!
If I had the means I would probably have Pete on tap to advise me on both business
and personal decisions like I would a financial advisor or an older brother. Every bit
of guidance helps when making life choices that could affect you for years, and allocating
for such guidance should be implemented in any good business or life plan.

When I first met Pete, I knew little of astrology and was very quick to point
out its obvious absurdities. I would say dull-witted things like ‘how
can you expect everyone to be one of only twelve types?’. It hadn’t
occurred to me that the world doesn’t care if you believe in astrology
or not; nature continues to go about it’s unnatural business regardless.
If your viewpoint is a scientific one, astrology holds all the trump cards –
it IS the earliest science. If you know next to nothing about this science (absurd
as it may appear) how can you make comments on its validity?
After sitting in with Pete on his chart readings of many of my close friends
and associates, I have seen a total of perhaps 30 horoscopes explained. I cannot
now say ‘Astrology does not work’ this would be pointless. I have
witnessed Pete describe in detail the character and behaviour of people whom
he has never met. There is nothing supernatural at work, it’s merely a
system that is currently ‘unfashionable’ in the modern world. My
guess is that the most successful or powerful people today are well aware of
astrology and it’s implications; they like to keep astrology to the back
pages of the tabloids where nobody will take any notice. What you don’t
know won’t harm you.
My understanding now is that those who ‘don’t believe in astrology’
know nothing about it.
Pete doesn’t have any Magic Answers to tell your partner or the golden
ticket out of your bad job. He won’t even tell you which horse will come
first (don’t think I haven’t tried this one). Astrology and ‘prediction’
are two things that you have to think through a little more clearly. If this
world worked like clockwork, what would we all be looking for? Pete has helped
me to understand that life holds many possibilities and routes, none more valid
than the next. Our understanding of ourselves and of the people around us can
be highlighted using astrology as a tool. You can use statistics or geometry,
a magnifying glass or a trumpet; how you interpret the world is up to you.
Astro-geography gets you thinking. The fascinating subject of how your life
is moulded by the places you visit. Even the sceptics have to bow down to this
one. I have used Pete to plan projects in other countries and even to choose
destinations as a route to my final goal. I will often take his advice before
a short trip abroad and bear his words in mind as I make decisions on my route.
Even if astrology is total nonsense, I’ve enjoyed myself simply by following
his lines on a map. Throw your Lonely Planet book down a volcano and follow
Lonely Pete instead.
Pete is honest and straightforward. He is excited by his work and wants to
share what he has learned with others. He doesn’t look like Kilroy or
Letterman and isn’t out to make a big noise. Pete treats the work like
a science, with respect and care; he does not try to bamboozle or impress with
cosmic mumbojumbo. I’ve never seen him wearing purple or juggling.
Those seeking scientific explanations for how astrology works are missing the
point. Just because there may not be a rational explanation does not mean it
should be dismissed. Pete's great skill lies in combining an artistic/scientific
or left/right brain approach; rationalism with intuition. A good chart interpretation
relies on succinct translation of swathes of data into understandable English;
Pete manages to combine the roles of scientist, philosopher, and advisor to
do this very successfully.
I would recommend Pete to anyone. I can accurately assess his development as
an astrologer through his analysis of my own chart over twenty plus years and
it never stops getting better! Pete can not only highlight people's personality
traits, times of key life-changing events (and their impact) but can also look
at the most significant future planetary developments and how they are liable
to impact a life. The emphasis here is not so much a question of ‘tell
me what's going to happen’ but more ‘what am I likely to be able
to achieve if I set my mind to it’. Thus his astrological approach is
a two-way process, requiring the client to look at his or her own aims, biases
and ambitions within the context of the charts being translated. I think this
is where Pete's work is really exciting. He seems actively involved in taking
astrology onto a new level - beyond the mere analysis of birth data and magical
thinking and into the realms of social psychology.

Before having my chart read by Pete Watson, I had a healthy amount of skepticism
with regards to astrology. Pete told me things about my past he couldn't have
known, including the year of my father's death and the year of when I moved
away from England to live abroad. Pete's very sensitive and made me feel totally
at ease throughout the reading. I have no hesitation in recommending him thoroughly.
