Paul Westran is an astrologer, author, researcher and software developer born in Sheffield, UK on 8th November 1966 (00:20hrs) and currently residing in Kalamunda, Western Australia. Paul holds dual British and Australian nationality.

In 2006 his book When Stars Collide - why we love, who we love and when we love them was published by O Books. It outlines his theory of progressed synastry and includes many examples using public record relationships.

Paul attended All Saints RC School in Sheffield and worked for South Yorkshire Police, McDonnell Douglas Information Systems and Northgate Information Solutions in the UK in fields including crime pattern analysis and crime management software development and for Fujitsu Australia as an IT consultant in the police information systems sector. A former musician, he fronted several Sheffield bands in the 80s including Sophomore Jive, Ice Parade and The Heat Seeking Missiles.

He is the director of, a project-based astrology research organisation which is primarily engaged in research into progressed synastry, a branch of relationship astrology which looks at astrological factors which are prevalent in choice-based relationships. This method of astrology invokes the secondary progressed chart as an extension – or unfoldment - of the natal chart. Through this method, it is claimed that the feelings of the couple and the course of their relationship can be predicted over time. He is the author of several astrological research software tools.
Paul’s articles have been published by The Mountain Astrologer, The International Astrologer, Astrology Quarterly, The Astrological Journal and Mercury. He occasionally lectures, occasionally travels and occasionally consults. He is a supporter of Sheffield Wednesday FC.


Quotes from When Stars Collide:

“Science is subject to time, but time is not subject to science, if it were vice versa, Galileo would not have had to wait two hundred years for the publication of his Dialogue on the Two Chief World Systems”. 

“The extraordinariness of an idea is, like both treason and astrological attraction, a matter of dates”.

“Air travel is far more useful to people than astral travel... at this point in time”.
