About Alex Trenoweth

Alex Trenoweth is an astrologer, author, musician and high school teacher. She is the author of the newly released book “Growing Pains,” written as an aid for adolescents, their parents and their teachers.

Born in Port Huron Michigan and now residing in London England. Alex first became interested in astrology when she discovered there was so much knowledge beyond star sign columns. Her views on Sun Sign astrology have softened considerably and she is now the resident astrologer of Ethical Hedonist Magazine and writes a monthly horoscope.

Alex studied astrology independently for several years then worked with Rainbow Circle as an astrology camp co-ordinator and also with the Wheel of Astrologers. She has worked at the world famous Glastonbury Music Festival and The Big Green Gathering as an astrologer, palmist and tarot reader. Her skills as a psychic are still highly sought following her appearances at numerous Psychic Fayres in the British Isles and beyond. More recently, she has worked with The Alchemical Journey at the Sunrise Festival and other camps. Her skills as a “wandering psychic” continue to be popular at the May Balls held at Oxford and Cambridge Universities.

In the late 1990s, Alex embarked on a more structured course of study with the Faculty of Astrological Studies (FAS). “I loved the fact that the FAS allowed me to learn from like minded people because studying astrology can be an enormously isolating experience. It’s like being the only speaker of an obscure language.” She later reflected that although astrologers speak the same language, they all have different accents. She is rightly proud of the fact that her engagement with a more formal level of study enhances rather than replaces her skills at a grass roots level of astrology. Alex is now the proud holder of the coveted DFAstrolS degree from the FAS.

Alex has also earned an MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology from Bath Spa University and is now one of the few people in the world to hold both an MA (CAA) from BSU as well as the diploma from the FAS. IChampagnen addition, she is a highly successful History teacher and pastoral care provider at an inner city London secondary school.

Alex was the long serving editor of the Astrology Quarterly for the Astrological Lodge of London, a contributor to The Astrology Show (with Jessica Adams, Neil Spencer and Adam Smith) and was a speaker at the internationally renowned United Astrology Conference (UAC), Denver Colorado in 2008 and at the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR) in 2014. She is due to speak again at the Astrological Association of Great Britain in September 2015 and the State Of The Art Astrological conference (SOTA) in New York in October 2015. In November 2015, she will be speaking at the Astrology Restored Conference in Cape Town South Africa along side Robert Hand, Komilla Sutton and Samuel Reynolds.

A prolific writer, she contributes to astrological magazines across the globe.

In February 2015, she was the UK Chapter Chairperson at the Krishnamurti Institute of Astrology conference in Calcutta and was voted “Best International Astrologer, 2015” by the executive committee. She is shown below being presented with this great honour by the Minister for Women and Children, Shashi Panja (right) and Shankar Nash Kapoor, a former High Court Justice of Delhi. She also delivered an academic lecture at the University of Delhi on the philosophical roots of modern astrologer in Europe. She will be returning to India in 2016.


In addition to her prestigious speaking engagements, she teaches astrology at The Mill in London, plays the trumpet in the South London Jazz Orchestra, is a self professed cat lover and supports the Detroit Tigers baseball team from across the Atlantic. Her books on Palmistry, Astrology and Adolescence (“Growing Pains”) and a collection of astrological essays are due out later this year.
