More About the Author

An astrologer and palmist since 1989, Frank Clifford began data collecting with Lois Rodden, contributing to and editing her magazine Data News and book Profiles of Women (1995). Frank's first book, British Entertainers: The Astrological Profiles, was published in 1997 and updated in 2003. Frank's database of celebrity data is on the Solar Fire program as The Clifford Data Compendium (1997, 2000, 2012) and on Astro-Databank. In 2009, he produced The Astrologer's Book of Charts, an eclectic collection of 150 horoscopes and worksheets of the famous for students and astrologers.

Back in 1996 he founded Flare Publications, and since then Frank has edited and published two dozen books on astrology and palmistry, including Astrology in the Year Zero by Garry Phillipson, The Contemporary Astrologer's Handbook by Sue Tompkins, and a revised edition of The Twelve Houses by Howard Sasportas. Flare focuses on handling e-books and translation rights for its list and for other astrologers.

Frank has combined his work as a consultant astrologer with that of Sun sign columnist for magazines such as Marie Claire (UK), Quick and Simple (Hearst, US), the celebrity weekly Reveal (UK) for three years, and the family monthly, Candis, for twelve years (UK). He has also been profiled in various broadsheets and tabloids, and has been featured regularly on TV and radio. Frank counts his columns in The Astrological Journal ('Horoscope Snapshots'), the ISAR Journal ('Data Compendium') and The Mountain Astrologer ('Horoscope Detective') as his favourite regular writing projects. His media work has ranged from the sublime to the ridiculous - from being interviewed for documentaries about the BBC comedy Little Britain and Danny Boyle's feature film Sunshine, guesting on Radio 4's The Inconstant Moon with Jeanette Winterson, and working with the Oxford University Press and Universal Studios... to being asked by The Sun to locate a then-missing Saddam Hussein!

Frank is also a well known palmist and consultant (with The Guardian newspaper dubbing him the 'palm reader to the stars'), and his book Palmistry 4 Today (published in five languages) is considered the modern textbook on the subject. Frank's other book on palmistry, Palm Reading (Hamlyn, 2003), is a unique guide with profiles on love, work and personality for each part of the hand. Cards of these profiles were published in 2007. The book was revised in 2012 as The Frank Guide to Palmistry. Every year Frank organizes the Palmistry Conference in London, which brings together some of the top hand analysts in the country.

Back in 2004, Frank took over running the London School of Astrology (www. londonschoolofastrology.co.uk) and organizes certificate and diploma classes, seminars and residential courses in astrology and palmistry. Considered the students' choice for studying astrology in the UK, the LSA prides itself on hosting seminars and classes by some of the world's most accomplished astrologers. Frank has also set up an annual Astrology Student Conference (www.astroconference.com) and the occasional Astrology and Music Conference. He has lectured in Europe, Asia, Australia and the USA, and for some years was a regular guest tutor on a psychology course at the London Metropolitan University.

Recent astrology books include Solar Arc Directions (2011) and Getting to the Heart of Your Chart (2012) by Frank, and in 2012 Flare published volumes by Faye Cossar (Using Astrology to Create a Vocational Profile) and Richard Swatton (From Symbol to Substance: Training the Astrological Intuition), and a revised edition of Pamela Crane's The Draconic Chart. Frank's long-awaited books, The Midheaven: Spotlight on Success and Humour in the Horoscope: The Astrology of Comedy, will follow in 2012-13. Frank has also steered two book projects, Astrology: The New Generation and New Voices in Astrology, both of which featured essays from upcoming, previously unpublished astrologers.

In September 2012, Frank was given The 2012 Charles Harvey Award for Exceptional Service to Astrology by his peers.

12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Austin Coppock on June 1, 2012
Format: Paperback
People love to proclaim that something is "New." It's an advertising cliche. Every product is "New and Improved," with superficial features added in a weak attempt to validate the claim. Yet "Astrology: The New Generation" actually delivers on this promise. It's fresh, beautifully executed and possessed of inspiring range.

Composed of essays from 14 different astrologers, the book is a delightful gumbo of different perspectives and topics. What I found remarkable was that within every category (mundane, natal, traditional, etc), the essays were all extraordinarily competent. This is not a book of "young people finding their footing"- the essays here are all the product of years of blood, sweat, tears and insight.

Due to my practice and proclivities, I was immediately drawn to the essays on mundane and traditional astrology, which I found highly gratifying. Yet as I explored essays outside of my defined areas of interest, I was pleasantly surprised to find myself learning from perspectives I do not usually consider.

As a full time astrologer myself, I often get the "I've heard this all before" feeling when I crack open a new astrology book. Not this time. Yet not only does the material feel fresh to a veteran such as myself, I also felt that I could suggest many of these essays to a student of astrology without worrying that it would go over their head. The book not only touches on a wide range of topics, it also speaks on a variety of levels. A rare and difficult feat, with kudos due to the editors, as well as the writers.

In summation, I am confident in heartily recommending "Astrology: The Next Generation" to both grizzled astrology buffs and green students of the arte. Bravo!

Format: Paperback
"Astrology:The New Generation" spotlights an impressive array of astrologers from many different schools of thought.
These 14 rising stars are prolific writers and presenters at national and international conferences. They are
also largely self-published because waiting for a publishing house to recognize and approve your work could
take forever--and there's no time to waste. The writers in this collection have an average
of several books to their name and over ten years of professional experience. They are self-starters and self-promoters for good reason--they know their stuff.

Frank C. Clifford, the man behind the idea of collecting these new voices was first introduced to astrology in his teens and at age 31 took over running the London School of Astrology. His essay "The Sun, Moon & Midheaven in Vocation" offers a new view of combining the influences of these three factors with clear examples. I feel inspired to try this technique with clients after reading Clifford's essay. Clifford's advice to "follow your chart and your heart" resonates strongly with my work in helping clients to move toward authentic and meaningful work. His phrase that describes despair as "Coming from choosing to be someone other than ourselves" is one I believe and will certainly adopt in vocational consulations.

Maurice Fernandez, another astrologer who began his professional work in his early twenties has accumulated over 20 years of experience in teaching, lecturing and writing two substantial books since his beginnings in the field.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a relatively new student of astrology I found this book extraordinarily helpful in extending the depth and breadth of my understanding of astrology. The range of territory explored by the authors is inspiring. I especially appreciated Mark Jones' chapter on the Pluto in Virgo generation. Kudos to the editor!
