Mark Jones is an astrologer, teacher, and consultant 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 married, to graphic artist and illustrator Clare Phillips, and lives in Wales with his young 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 over 20 years in private practice as a psychotherapist and astrologer, and having logged over 10,000 hours of client work, Mark has developed a model of transformational astrological consultation in which he works with individuals after the initial natal chart reading to support achievement of their true potential.
Mark is available for readings, astrological consulting and tutoring. He has developed many resources for students including a foundation course in Evolutionary Astrology, a Counseling Skills for Astrologers course, and an extensive library of classes and workshop recordings.
