Bernadette Brady

Bernadette Brady M.A. is a professional consulting and teaching astrologer, native to Australia, now living in Bristol, England. She holds a masters degree in Culture, Astronomy and Astrology from Bath Spa University, UK. In September, 2006 she was honoured by the Astrological Association of Great Britain by being awarded the prestigious Charles Harvey Award for "exceptional service to astrology".

In May 2008, Bernadette was further honoured and acknowledged by her peers through receiving The Marion D. March Regulus Award for Theory and Understanding. This award recognizes one whose work demonstrates the use of astrology with other disciplines, and thereby encourages the acceptance of astrology as a separate philosophical model or recognized discipline.

Besides lecturing and teaching, Bernadette designs software and writes.  She is particularly renowned for her innovative work in visual astrology, the role of fixed stars in western astrology and for her work in predictive astrology. Her latest work is in mapping chaos theory to astrology.

She is currently reading for her doctorate in determinism in western astrology at Bath Spa University (UK) and is a tutor for the MA in Cosmology and Culture at Lampeter University, Wales UK.


Astro Logos is the astrological teaching school of Bernadette Brady M.A. and Darrelyn Gunzburg, and was first established in Adelaide, South Australia, in February, 1990. It was based on the astrological teaching experience of Bernadette, who had been teaching astrology since 1980, and Darrelyn who had been teaching since 1984. At this time Astro Logos was both a school for attending students as well as Open Learning (distance education).

In 2003, Astro Logos relocated to Bristol, UK, to allow both Bernadette and Darrelyn to pursue their own study interests, as well as to provide easier access to astrological conferences in Europe and the USA. At this time Astro Logos made the decision to only teach students through Open Learning.

Astro Logos is a Ltd UK company, providing mentoring for a selected group of students, as well as publishing the Master Class Series of Studyshops.



Predictive Astrology, The Eagle and the Lark by Bernadette Brady (Samuel Weiser, USA 1999)

First published in 1992 as The Eagle and the Lark - A textbook of Predictive Astrology, the book was so well-received it was republished in 1999 with the title  Predictive Astrology - The Eagle and the Lark.  In 1999 Predictive Astrology won the Inaugural Spica Award from the UK for the best astrological book of 1999. 

Bernadette Brady has a gift for expressing the mathematically complex in poetic terms that turn angles and orbits into a celestial ballet. Predictive Astrology covers all the basics - transits, progressions, and houses - while unlocking the bewildering secrets of eclipses. In a seamless dialogue of logic and intuition, Brady encourages us to look beyond the basic blueprint of the natal chart and peek into the future. Her view of fate doesn't condemn a person to a set path in life, allowing the astrologer who carefully balances logic and intuition to better prepare her clients for the challenges fate has in store Brian Patterson

Brady's Book of Fixed Stars by Bernadette Brady
(Samuel Weiser, USA 1998)

Brady's Book of Fixed Stars is the newest, most complete book on fixed stars since the publication of Vivian Robson's Fixed Stars and Constellations in Astrology. In this single volume, Brady provides:
-- Paran Maps and Star Phases for over 60 stars.
-- New insights into the natal use of fixed stars, as well as their use in mundane astrology.
-- Extensive appendices of Heliacal Rising and Acronychal Setting graphs and tables to help astrologers find rising or setting dates for any given location.
-- A listing of 176 stars with their 21st-century Ptolemaic precessed positions versus their commonly-considered positions based on Ulugh Beg's methods.

Brady melds modern techniques with Egyptian and early Greek procedures and mythology so astrologers can apply these techniques to modern chart interpretation. Her methods open a window on the field of fixed stars, revealing how a major star in a person's chart indicates the stage of life in which it is active, and how it reveals the person's life journey through the mythology that the star represents.

Astrology, a place in chaos
by Bernadette Brady (Wessex Astrologer, UK 2006 )

The marriage of chaos theory with astrology produces a new frame work for the consideration of astrology. This research was the subject of Bernadette Brady's masters dissertation, but now she has re written it into this ground breaking astrological work. The book gives new insights into the long debate on fate and freewill and suggest a new position in the argument as to the nature of astrology. In creating another view in which to consider astrology Brady also challenges the daily habits and rituals that give structure to our lives.
