Russell Grant is a popular British astrologer and media personality. He is frequently quoted in the media, as well as working as a television presenter. He has written several books dealing with matters astrological, among which is his biggest international seller The Illustrated Dream Dictionary.
He became nationally popular as a reult of his appearances on ITV's This Morning in its Richard & Judy halcyon days.
He is sometimes dubbed the UK's 'Astrologer Royal', by analogy with the official position of Astronomer Royal. The title was invented by the media in 1978, when he publicly gave an astrological consultation to the Queen Mother.
For anyone who's interested, his astrology website, in addition to the Western astrology that is his principle practice, also promotes numerology, tarot divination, Vedic astrology (historically related to Western astrology), Chinese astrology (historically unrelated to Western astrology), star naming services, purchase of titles of nobility, and psychic services.
He is the founder of the Middlesex Family Foundation which links all the Middlesex named places around the world together. He has his own officially recognised charity WISE (Wales Ireland Scotland England) Communities and works for research into a cure for Alzheimer's and Dementia and sports and creative expression for old and young alike. To this end he has poured much of his money into youth cricket leagues for young people and many other philanthropical and altruistic causes.
In 2006, he appeared in the ITV reality show Celebrity Fit Club. In May 2010, he appeared on Kitchen Burnout on ITV1 and in January 2011 visited Turkey on Channel 4's Celebrity Five Go to....
