My full birth data are available on request.
First interested in astrology in 1960; bought first astrology book in 1961 in Paris, in July - a very small Marabout-Flash pocket edition, much of which I couldn't understand, as the French terminology was at that time totally strange to me!
Seven years went by; then - as Pam Bennett - in 1968 started to learn from library books. Met Olivia Barclay, who generously advised and encouraged me, and became a kind friend.
1969 - joined the Astrological Association of Great Britain; enrolled with the Faculty of Astrological Studies' beginners course.

Became a member of the Astrological Lodge.Started the Kent Astrological Society at “a little after 8.00pm” on March 9th in Bethersden, Kent. Began astrology classes in Kent on 17th April the same year in Tenterden, then moved them to Ashford. Summer 1973, elected onto the Council of the AstrologicalAssociation of Great Britain. That Winter, took over the editorship of AA's newsletter Transit.
1975 Summer, moved to Assistant Editor of the astrological journal for the next five years. From this period onward, contributed many articles to the Astrological journal, the AstrologicalLodge's astrology, cao times in the USA and other magazines; also lectured to the AA, the Lodge, and to the general public on different aspects of Astrology.
Developed the daily progressed angles.

As Pam Crane:
1982 - developed and launched the Pamela CraneCollege of Horoscopy to teach beginners, intermediate and advanced students by correspondence to a high standard, and to promote Draconic Astrology.
1984-86 - worked on the book, Draconic Astrology, which was published by Aquarian Press at the beginning of 1987. During this period, made two lecture visits to Holland, then in 1988, with Jacob Schwartz, introduced Draconic Astrology to groups in the USA.
1989 - February 13th at 0h00 a single idea - for the Current Draconic directed chart - led to writing the next book, The hidden splendour - an introduction to interdimensional astrology, which brings into synthesis all major known Zodiacs, plus Fractal Astrology through the Dwad and Superdwad, and use of Asteroids.

October 25th - inspiration led, through Draconic astrology, to the discovery of the Nativity of Jesus - since then supported and confirmed by many years’ astrological work on Christian history with generous help from Him, directly and through guidance. The work grew into a book, the Birth of Christ.
During the 1990s, Draconic Astrology incorporated into all major astrological computer programs, including Solar Fire, Win*Star, Prima, Kepler, Electric Ephemeris, and Colin Miles’ Astrocalc (he was the first to program it for me, in the 1980s. Many thanks for that early support, Colin!)

Constant aim - to illumine human spiritual truths through Astrology, and vice versa. Impossible (?) dream - to reconcile both the scientific community and the Christian Churches with Astrology. The Liberal Catholic Church, in which I was ordained Deacon in 1992, is the only one, to my knowledge, which fully accepts the wisdom of astrological study and counsel.
