I WAS really excited to meet Patsy Bennett, The Northern Star's own astrologer.

I have dabbled in astrology since I was 15.

I used to make charts for my friends and family.

It became quite an obsession, and all the calculations were done by hand - there were no computer programs in those days.

Most people know about their sun sign. But do you know about your moon sign?

Patsy Bennett will this month host two workshops at the Byron Community College.

"Knowing about your moon sign is just as important as knowing your sun sign," she said.

"The moon astrologically represents your emotional reaction to events."

Your moon sign will give you an insight in the way you handle your emotions.

For example, whether I tend to be fixed in my emotions, or if I am flexible.

"The sun sign tends to explain who we are in the centre of our core being," Patsy said.

"The course will also look at your moon sign interacting with your sun sign.

"You will often find there are differences between your moon sign and your sun sign."

But the differences are really interesting - it means you have different layer in your personality.

It is more than just knowing if you are a Scorpio or a Taurus.

The first morning of the workshop will be about the moon, astronomically, and Patsy will also talk about the myths and legends associated with the moon.

On the second morning, all participants will be given a copy of their astrology chart, so they can find out where they moon is situated in their chart, and what it means for them or their loved one.

Patsy will also be looking at the relationship between the sun and the moon in each participants chart, during a one-on-one talk.
