Barbara Bolte has been offering astrological consultations since 1991. Her interest in astrology was sparked after consulting an astrologer who amazed her by knowing more about her than she did herself, and who was able to pinpoint the heart of an issue that several years of therapy had not revealed.

Intrigued, she taught herself how to calculate horoscopes, and began drawing up birth charts for friends and colleagues. One day, while looking at the results, she discovered that she understood something about the person that she could not have known merely through social contact.

This launched her in her studies, devouring astrology books, attending courses and lectures at both the Faculty of Astrological Studies, and the Centre for Psychological Astrology in London, UK.

Soon after her studies began, Barbara found herself quite naturally drawn to reading birth charts for others. This motivated her to achieve professional accreditation. She received her Diploma from the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London, UK in 1993. And because of the need to listen effectively in consultations, Barbara decided to undertake further training and received her Certificate in Counselling Skills from Lewisham College, London, UK in 1994.

Barbara also works as a professional classical musician, playing oboe, currently teaching and performing. It was her musical studies that took her to Europe, where she discovered astrology. She currently resides in Perth, Ontario, Canada.
