British astrologer and syndicated columnist for publications in the UK, U.S. Australia and South Africa. He began his astrological studies as a young musician and the initial provocation became a full-time career. A professional counselor, he wrote his first sun-sign columns in 1986 for the newspaper Today. In January 1992, he left Today and in December of that year, joined the Daily Mail. The Daily Express became his venue in January 2000.

Cainer has many radio and TV credits such as resident astrologer for a Monday morning show. He is a widower who works from the Yorkshire farmhouse he share with his six kids. His interests include computers, vegetarian cooking and playing the double bass.

Cainer was found collapsed at his home in York, England, of a suspected heart attack, by his wife Sue on 2 May 2016 at about 12.30am. Paramedics arrived and tried to revive him for 40 minutes without success. He was pronounced dead at hospital.
