About Janine Opheim Evolutionary Astrologer
About the Global White Lion Protection Trust
This presentation is bringing together all those pieces where animals and astrology meet.
I will be sharing the signs that relate to animals, astrology signatures relating to animals, how understanding our astrology charts can give us more information about our spirit and totem animals and that animals also have astrology charts.
Through our animal friends charts we can see where they're coming from, understand their personality and challenges more deeply and it can support our deepening relationships with them (sharing examples from my own life and animal friends)."

No previous astrology or animal communication experience needed.
I grew up in Australia, lived in England and now live in Norway. I have a Gemini sun which means good communication is important to me, I am also a lifelong student! I have an Aquarius rising and moon, which means I Love Sci Fi! It’s also where my passion for astrology comes in as I have Mars in Aquarius too.
Like so many people I didn’t know what kind of job I wanted as I was nearing adulthood, but my whole life I have yearned for a career that I am both passionate about and extremely good at. I had so many ideas when I was younger about what I could do but that’s all they were, ideas, and I had a great imagination! I have Neptune in Sagittarius conjunct Jupiter at the top of my chart, my imagination is one of my gifts. One of my challenges is, with Saturn in Taurus conjunct Venus opposite Neptune and Jupiter, is to ground those ideas, fantasies and insights into reality, wherever possible. Something I am still figuring out.
I could list everything I’ve trained as but that would be lengthy (TRIPLE Gemini) so let’s just say it was mainly computer/admin/finance related or as I began to know my true self it was alternative therapies for animals.
I left Australia in 1996 to learn about Birds of Prey in England. I ended up by staying in England for 10 years. Birds of Prey are still one of my greatest loves and I am thrilled when I hear the White Tailed Sea Eagles calling to each other outside my office window.
In 2006 I moved to Norway to be with my now Norwegian husband. It has been the most challenging and the most rewarding time of my life.
With my South Node in Leo, I am a huge animal lover and have been for as long as I can remember.
When I was 11 years old I realised it was a natural ability to be able to communicate with animals. It would take over 20 years before I took my first animal communication course and in 2016 I qualified as an interspecies communicator with Wynter Worsthorne of Animaltalk Africa learn.animaltalkafrica.com. I now work for Wynter supporting her students and running practice sessions as well as hosting many of her webinars.
WHITE LION LEADERSHIP ACADEMY
In 2012 I went to the Global White Lion Protection Trust in South Africa for the 2nd time. This time it was to take part in a 6.5 week training, the first ever White Lion Leadership Academy where we would learn from many teachers and guides how to empower ourselves. My focus at the time was to continue my animal communication education with Wynter Worsthorne and Linda Tucker (founder of the Global White Lion Protection Trust).
It was here that I met Maurice Fernandez, Master Evolutionary Astrologer (and I do not say this lightly). Maurice is also a Kundalini yoga teacher. Little did I know my life was about to get an upgrade! In our week with Maurice we woke up at 4am every morning and did Kundalini yoga until sunrise and for the rest of the day learned about astrology. I came alive with both of these amazing and transformative tools.
I couldn’t get enough astrological knowledge. I was hanging on Maurice’s every word and when he started to test our knowledge the answers kept coming to me and yet I had never learnt astrology before. During an astrology consultation with Maurice later that week, he told me if I was interested in Astrology, then I should study it. Knowing astrology as I do now that makes total sense. I have a South Node in Leo, my Love for animals, and my North Node in Aquarius, Astrology!
After my Mum died when I was 16 I was supported by my high school’s counsellor Rev. Heather Marshall. I adored her. She was funny, warm, caring and such a bright life in my life where everything else around me was complete darkness. At that time I became aware of a part of myself that really wanted to be able to help people.
My first thoughts about being an animal communicator were to help animals. I soon learned that, most of the time, the way to help animals (including wild animals) was to help people. And in my time working as an animal communicator the animals asked for this a lot. “I’m fine, but help my human!”
In 2014 I slipped a disc in my neck and was unable to use part of my left arm. After an operation a few months later my body was in a really bad state. I realised that I needed to do stretches, daily. At that same time a Kundalini Yoga teacher came to the island where I was living. I began very slowly, (it took me ages to get up from a laying down position) but began having the most beautiful experiences and I began to think about the possibility of training as a Kundalini Yoga teacher. Which I did, and qualified in 2017. I have taught locally and in Wales on retreats with Wynter. I have also taught online and have plans to return to this in the future.
Although I was now aware of the possibility of training as an astrologer, my heart was still committed to becoming an animal communicator. However, I had known for many years that that was not the end of my story, it didn’t feel like my career would be working as an animal communicator. I didn’t know why, but that was just how I felt. But after meeting Maurice, it slowly became clear that being an animal communicator was simply who I was but being an astrology was who I was to become. At some point I expect the two will come together.
In 2018 I finally made the commitment to focus on my astrology studies. It was then I realised what I had learned in 2012 was kindergarten and I’d just signed up to University. And then the hard work began…. Astrology is an incredibly complex subject where synthesis of many different energies is needed to understand the chart. It’s been hard but the most rewarding work of my life. I am filled with joy and gratitude to be able to offer evolutionary astrology consultations to clients so they too can see the transformative power and guidance astrology is capable of giving.
