Faye - The Person
Faye Cossar was born in Christchurch New Zealand. Her parents were both born in New Zealand - some of the first generations born there, apart from the native population. Her mother came from a catholic family with a sense of humour and her father was an agnostic who studied psychology, hypnosis and regression in the 50's before it was the thing to do. He was a self-made man who ran his own businesses and was at home much of the time for all of Faye's early life. Both parents encouraged her education and were very proud of her academic achievements. Unfortunately her father died just before her first university graduation.
Faye is an Aquarian who likes to do things differently and she has followed her heart to become an astrologer in a world that doesn't always appreciate what astrology can do.
She currently lives in the centre of Amsterdam and like any self respecting astrologer she has two cats, her only company at home after two long term relationships.

Faye is passionate about her work as well as food, (Moon in Taurus) and she has enjoyed the many countries she has seen in her travels. She is also fond of skiing (well more après ski and enjoying the scenery these days) and photography as well. She has lived and worked in England and is now at home in Amsterdam, where she has lived since 1986.
She has also worked in Australia, Fiji and South Africa and given lectures in other countries.
Faye believes :
in alternative health options
in cats (and Ok all animals but some are more equal than others)
in food you enjoy that hasn't been messed with
there is more out there than science accepts - bring back the X-Files!
that science is wonderful but not everything
that the world needs astrology
that the earth has amazingly beautiful places
that we all have our own unique place in and on this planet.
