Wendy Stacey B.A, M.A, Dip LSA, MAPAI
Wendy was born late in the day on 3 August 1968 in the southernmost city of New Zealand, Invercargill. Of both Maori and English descent Wendy enjoyed a semi rural upbringing until she moved to Christchurch NZ when she was 19, which is when and where she discovered astrology.
Wendy began her studies with the Christchurch School of Astrological Studies in 1987 under the teachings of Tom Brosnan for three years. At 22 she had completed her studies in Astrology, completed an adult teaching qualification at the College of Education and was recruited as the youngest teacher for the Christchurch School of Astrology where she taught for two years.
In 1993 Wendy was a speaker at an Astrology New Zealand conference. With a never-ending thirst for knowledge Wendy also studied both Accounting and Social Sciences, (where she gained a Bachelor of Arts in 1994). She worked within Chartered Accountancy and took positions on various financial projects mostly within Government departments where she advised and instigated change of National legislation on three separate occasions; mostly do to with race relations. In 1993 Wendy relocated to Auckland in New Zealand where she spent the next 2 years.
Her interest in mundane and financial Astrology developed in Auckland where she learnt various techniques on applying Astrology to business and financial industries. She once again set up an Astrological practice and ran evening classes for beginners and intermediate Astrology students. Additionally she took financial and management project contracts.
In 1995 Wendy made her way to the UK to pursue post graduate study and a financial management position within a blue chip company in London. Within the first month she met her future husband whom she married a year later and has had two daughters since. Wendy continued teaching through various local colleges in London including Chiswick Adult Education Centre, Greenford Community Centre, Southall College, Harrow Adult Education Centre and Ealing Tertiary College, whilst maintaining an I.T company and property development business with her husband.

Unable to keep herself from learning, she entered the Masters programme at Bath Spa University College in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology and was one of the first year students to graduate in 2003.
With another interest in medical astrology, she has been researching childbirth methods and astrology since 1992. She has now continued this research and is now doing a PhD in this field.
