Interview with Steve Andrews

Oct 15th, 2017 | By | Category: Articles, Pagan People
Steve Andrews has two titles with Moon books – Herbs of the Northern Shaman, and herbs of the Sun, Moon and Planets. He’s also a musician.
Nimue: Which of your Moon Books titles should people check out, and why? 
 
Steve: Pagan Portals: Herbs of the Sun, Moon and Planets because it is an introduction to a fascinating field of study that can have uses outside the subjects of astrology and herbalism. For example, the information in the book could be used by gardeners, and a herb garden could be designed with sections for herbs according to their planetary rulers.

Nimue: Looking back over your journey so far, is there anything you wish you’d done differently?

 
Steve: Yes, I wish I had realised years ago that to be successful as a writer, musician, or in any artistic field, you have to understand the value of publicity and marketing. No one is going to come looking for you or your work. You have to promote it.

Nimue: What are you most proud of?
 
Steve: Getting shown on Britain’s Got Talent even though I didn’t get any further than auditioning before the judges. I saw for myself how big a project BGT is and how hard it is to get through auditions. 

Nimue: Who inspires you?
 
Steve: Neil Young, because besides being an amazing singer-songwriter and musician, he is also an active campaigner who is not afraid to speak up about political and environmental concerns. He is a protest singer who has kept protesting.

Nimue: What do you think the most important issue for Pagans is right now?
 
Steve: The fate of Stonehenge and public access to it.

Nimue: What do you do when you need to feel grounded?
 
Steve: Go for a walk in some countryside, such as walking in a forest or by a river, and connecting with Mother Earth.
