Astrology   Martha Clarke       083 8073907

Astrology is the in depth interpretation of how the planetary energies were aligned in your birth chart at the moment of your incarnation into this earth. Your natal birth chart therefore represents your soul’s purpose in this lifetime on this earth. Astrology includes the interpretation of the planets in your natal birth chart, and how the 12 planets, plus the North and South Nodes “talk to each other” (known as the aspects), and this interpretation gives us an in depth knowledge of ourselves and what we are here in this lifetime to experience.  

The interpretation also includes the four axis of a natal birth chart, the Ascendant, Descendant, Midheaven and IC (Imum Coeli).

Planets which are “angular” (i.e. close the these four axis) have added importance in a natal chart reading.

stellium of planets (three or more planets in either the same sign or the same house) also have added imprtance in a natal chart reading

To gain as much as possible from an astrology reading, it is best for the client to be open to what is discussed by the astrologer.

Astrologists world wide vary enormously in how they interpret a natal birth chart.

Martha’s approach to an astrological chart reading is a humanistic, solution orientated and free will driven interpretation.

Martha engages wholly with her clients on concentrating on understanding subconscious patterns of behaviour which they can immediately work on to change in order to grow in this lifetime.

Synastry / Family / Children’s Charts

Martha specialises in interpreting whole couples and family charts where your “astrological DNA” gives couples,  parents and their children a greater understanding of each other and a compassion for each others’ innate astrological differences (this is known as synastry). And yes, even step and half families will find they have similar “astrological themes” going on between them in their charts!


Martha also specialises in “astrocartography” which is the mapping of the planetary energies worldwide to find the optimum places for her clients to live, work, meet “that special someone”, develop their career, raise their family, or immediately heighten their creative output.

Martha has actively “lived” astrocartography for the last decade, by firstly relocating back to West Cork in Ireland from Wales in 2007, then subsequently moving to Italy in 2014 for two years (right by her Mars line!) and she is now currently living in Cork, having relocated back from beautiful Tuscany, Italy to develop her astrological practice!

Martha is currently living under both her Saturn and Pluto lines in Cork city and also lives close to her Mercury line (the planet Mercury is her natal chart ruler) in West Cork

As a quadruple Gemini with an Aquarian Midheaven no astrological question posed phases her!!!

Martha holds a Certificate in Counselling from the Cork Counselling Centre and abides by their Code of Ethics at all times.

Client Confidentiality is guaranteed at all times

 What are the benefits of working with Martha?

The benefits are profound, immediate and varied, some of which are as follows:

Increased clarity as to your life’s purpose

Greater compassion for family members, friends, and colleagues

Phenomenal and immediate increase in creativity

Understanding how to gently withstand family and parental pressure to choose the wrong vocation

Disengaging from conventional counselling, as an initial in depth consultation can provide the client with the inner certainty and surety to immediately change their life’s path to a one which nurtures them more

Greater ability to cope with change (via a transit reading which predicts changes ahead for the coming year)

Combining individual and / or family charts with astrocartography helps a family make a timely decision as to where in the world the individual, couple or family would best feel nurtured, nourished and supported

Martha is a resident professional astrologer with Dervish.
Bookings can be made direct on her website , or via the Dervish staff, or by phone 083 8073907. Sessions are usually between an hour to an hour and a half in length. Due to the substantial amount of time which goes into preparing a chart beforehand, all sessions must be paid for in advance.
Martha is also running a FOUR week evening ”Introduction to Astrology” course from Tuesday 4th April. Bookings online at or via Dervish.

Counselling TherapistLaurence Murphy

I provide a safe and confidential space for clients to express as much or as little as they feel comfortable with. My approach to counselling is person centred; at the heart of the person centred approach is the idea that the person seeking help ultimately knows what is best for themselves. The role of the therapist is to create the conditions for change and growth in the client through a process of acceptance, compassion and a willingness to meet and hear the person where ever they are at regardless of what is revealed. I believe that feeling heard and understood is probably what is most therapeutic about therapy and the very act of sharing and unburdening ourselves can be a source of healing.

The relationship between client and therapist, known as the therapeutic relationship is the core building block of change. We get to know ourselves and our needs through our relationships with others.

Common issues I work with include Relationships, Addiction, Depression, Anxiety, Loneliness,/ Isolation,

Family of origin issues, Finding meaning in life, Suicidal thoughts, Obsessive compulsive disorder. I have a special interest in the area of addiction and recently completed the (HSE)Certificate in Drug and Alcohol Studies with Arbour House.

I trained with Flatstone Institute in Cork which is accredited with The Irish Association of Humandistic and Integrative Psychotherapy. (IAHIP) I operate according to the ethical guidelines laid down by( IAHIP) and I am in regular supervision.

Rates I offer reasonable rates to reflect both my level of experience and the current finacial situation for many people. I operate a sliding scale of rates. For unemployed, unwaged or full time students I charge 30 eu ro per hour. For those in full time employment 40 euro per hour.
