Tanya Obreza




Astrologer and Metaphysician Tanya Obreza says many people have the wrong idea about her profession - and her aim is to break down the mystique surrounding astrology and other esoteric subjects.  Born in Slovenija, Tanya grew up in Sydney and started practising astrology 33 years ago in England.  Since then she has established an extensive international following - largely due to her reassuring, down to earth presence.  

Tanya says that the first question she’s often asked is “do you really believe in astrology?”  Her answer?  “No - I don't!  That’s because astrology isn’t a religion or faith. Planets are real - they’re up there  - so you don’t have to “believe” in them!  But I have studied and practised the subject for over 25 years, and have continued to find astrology to be a rewarding and valuable tool for self-awareness and understanding.  For the astrologer, the proof that astrology works lies in constant application and, mostly, the accuracy of my work is not confirmed by myself...but from feedback from my clients.  

Overall, the main misconception about astrology is that it’s linked to the “supernatural”.... or that it’s a religion, or faith.   I’m not psychic; neither am I a fortune teller...nor do I “worship” astrology.  I simply use it.   No special gift is required to become an astrologer - only years of study, training and practise.  (An interest in others helps!) In the case of planetary transits and progressions - rather than “predict”, I prefer to present the client with a set of possibilities.  It is then up to the individual to make the best of them.  When analysing a chart specifically for character analysis, I aim to highlight the client’s strengths and weaknesses, and if possible show how those strengths can be developed.

It’s often been argued that astrology is unethical because it dispels us of the responsibility we feel for our own behaviour.  Tanya’s feeling is that “no one should be allowed diminished responsibilities for their own decisions.  Life is a learning experience, and despite our “given lot” it’s up to each of us to operate in as much of a spiritually informed manner as we can.  Despite some grey areas, there is a generally accepted demarcation line between right and wrong, which we alone choose to knowingly cross.  Astrology does not hold your fate is its hands - it’s meant to be used as a “guide” or “map” to help increase self-awareness along your individual path in life”.

Tanya has appeared as resident weekly astrologer on Channel 10’s ‘Monday to Friday” programme; and contributes on a regular basis Marie Claire Magazine; Gold Coast Bulletin, South Africa’s Sunday Tribune, Prestige and New Zealand’s Sunday News.  Other recent credits include Women’s Forum, UK’s Company magazine, the mag, The Daily Advertiser, Geelong Advertiser, Sunday News (NZ), Mode Brides, Family Circle; Mother & Baby; Panthers Magazine and Slimmer.  Without mentioning them all, Tanya writes a regular weekly horoscope for many newspapers in Australia and overseas.
