Sy Scholfield: Overview
Thanks for your interest. I'm an astro-data researcher & collector, a consultant astrologer, an editor & proofreader, a published writer, and an independent scholar. Hundreds of my timed research data have been published in leading print, software, and online astro-data collections, and I have compiled and/or edited the data in several astrology books.
Astro-Data Researcher, Collector, Editor, Publisher, Blogger
Since my mid-teens I've researched, collected and shared "astro-data," i.e., the information (names, places, dates, years & times of birth) required to cast accurate astrology charts for famous or otherwise remarkable people and events. Today my collection contains thousands of timed astrological data.

My data is included in Lois Rodden's Astrodatabank (1800+ data, c2000-2014); Frank C. Clifford's 2003 book British Entertainers: The Astrological Profiles (3rd edition, 30+ data; see more at his London School of Astrology website); and Stephanie Johnson's Australian Data Collection (2004-) and Solar Fire Gold software (1000+ data, 2008-2014). I edited the data in Frank Clifford's 2009 The Astrologer's Book of Charts (available in softcover and hardback editions), Wendy Stacey's 2012 Uranus Square Pluto, and Frank Clifford's 2012 Getting to the Heart of Your Chart: Playing Astrological Detective.

Copyright, Fair Use of My Research Data
I hold full copyright over my collection of research data. Contrary to what you may have read elsewhere I have never signed copyright of my data over to anybody. If you wish to publish a few of my data (or charts using my data) for your project, and you include full attribution to me as the collector, including the URL or a hyperlink to this website, then to do so is considered fair use. If you wish to publish more than a few of my data (or charts using my data) then you should contact me and make arrangements which may include payment.
AstroData Proofreading & Editing Testimonials

"I owe a great many thanks to sy Scholfield for supervising and compiling the following list of data used in the book. Always sceptical of quotes and unverified sources – and the various errors that have crept into online astrological databanks – Sy was able to double-check much of the data using new sources . . . I would recommend him to those looking to have data researched, verified and compiled for projects, books or articles – Frank C. Clifford.

Proofreading & Editing and Testimonials

"Many thanks go out to . . . Simon Scholfield for wonderfully Dragonish critical editing and transformation of the text at the eleventh hour" – Bill Rodgers.

"Becoming Radical Faerie: Queering the Spirit of the Circle." Popular Spiritualities: The Politics of Contemporary Enchantment. Ed. Lynne Hume and Kathleen McPhillips. Aldershot: Ashgate, 2006: 117-27: 127.

In 1994, I compiled and edited Queer Gravity (under the pseudonym, 'Simon-Alice') for the national tertiary students conference, Queer Collaborations. To my knowledge this was the first Australian magazine produced for and by LGBTI students to be distributed across the country. It included the first reproduction in print of the lesbian safe sex poster, Dam Dykes, which would later be banned from the Brisbane City Council Art Gallery.
