David Stuart Ryan


Writer, traveller and astrologer.
Inventor of a new astrological interpretation program.
The writing came first, you can see the titles at

Around the eclipse of March 1968 I turned down a job writing ads for KLM airline and went
travelling overland to India. (Didn’t everyone?) Felt a little smug about that until I met
a girl on the beach in Goa who had turned down a job writing for PanAm to head off to Formentera
and then India. (beat that Ryan!).

Did visit an astrologer within 5 days of arriving in an incredibly hot India ( the temperature was hitting over 120F
(50C) and even the Indians were dying) who blew me away with his analysis. Even getting that I was an
advertising copywriter.

So now many moons later I have a computer program that combines both East and West astrology to give
some unique, mind blowing readings.
