Gary Van Dyk

I have a great curiosity about the complexity and the wonder of the world we live in and the people we encounter on out life path. My animals have taught me a lot about the symbolism of astrology - not to forget the great opportunity and blessing in being able to work with wounded owls, falcons and a variety of wounded animals in analysing their ‘decumbiture’ (the illness-astrology-chart) to identify illness and to facilitate healing. I have always been ahead of time - I was born 2.5 months early, so I'm a survivor and am fascinated by what makes ‘us’ tick. My dreams and life experiences by the age of 6 months made me realise there is more to life than we could ever imagine, so I had to learn the hard way from a society that does not always understand nor support those they perceive as different... my insight into dreams, and the mystery of numbers which I learnt about in 1969, and the great insight I have gained form Astrology since 1970 has made my journey on earth so much more productive and useful.

PROFILE
What did you want to be when you were little?
In the grand scheme of things I’m still little: I thought I wanted to be an Astronaut – because I wanted to explore space, but I’d hate the lack of fresh air and cramped space whilst travelling – so, an Eagle is still top of my list, just imagine flying free...
What soothes you?
Observing my garden where the whole mystery of life, birth, death and rebirth is so clearly visible.
What irks you?
A long face and a negative attitude.
Is there a book you read that changed your life?
The book on both my palms observing the changing lines on my hands as I encounter Life.
The music you listen to most often?
The joyous morning song of the jewelled Malachite Sunbird outside my study-window.
Who would you go to the ends of the earth for?
Truth and Silence
Who is your greatest source of inspiration?
Nature
Do you have any 'show off' coffee table books in your home?
No, I don’t have to show off books to the trusted few who visit my home.

Ever been left speechless on the air?

Not really, but if an Alien-being popped in to have his/her/it’s Astrology Chart done I might untie my tongue.
Who is the one person you would love to interview, but haven't yet had the pleasure?
Four interviews with Galileo Galilee (1564 – 1642): he said that the Earth spins on its axis and revolves around the Sun, which was a heresy, and lead to Galileo’s Inquisition in 1633; the second just after his sentence when he walk out and said that the Earth Moves; the third when in 1992 The Catholic Church declared "formal recognition of error" and admitted that Galileo was indeed right; and lastly in 2006 with astronomers quibbling about what "a planet" really constitutes... oh, perhaps someone will channel Galileo.
