The practice of using planetary cycles to measure or predict political events originates with Plato’s Timaeus, dating from the early fourth century BC: “Wherefore, as a consequence of this reasoning and design on the part of God, with a view to the generation of Time, the sun and moon and five other stars, which bear the appellation of “planets” [i.e., ‘wanderers’], came into existence … Read More A PRIMER ON POLITICAL ASTROLOGY
Summary – back in September, I looked at the ingress chart for the United States covering the last quarter of calendar 2017 in regards to whether it would find itself at war during that period. At that time, the answer was probably not although it remained a realistic possibility. Now, for the next calendar quarter, the situation has changed and the chances of war … Read More War in 2018?
Overall – this is looking very positive – with some problems to be overcome (to be expected) but a favourable final outcome. I would expect a publisher to come after my novel in about 9 months and that makes sense given that JB’s course finishes end in May 2018.

She wasn’t too keen on that, however. For her, spiritualty was too personal. OK – so I decided to come up with something by myself. It couldn’t be that … Read More What is Spirituality? I’m sure that I should know…
Once, I knew a Belgian ‘white’ witch who had been a powerful (hereditary) black magician. At the height of his powers, he could kill a man just by looking at him, or at least so he said. Sounds a bit much but I believed him – not the least because he had a Pluto Square Mercury and Pluto sextile Venus – both within seconds of … Read More The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
A friend of mine has a Mars/Neptune conjunction in a wide square aspect to his Sun. Most of the time, we get on very well and after many years, I can honestly say that he is a good man. However, in our more difficult moments, I’ve rightfully called him a bully – one who knows just when I’m feeling down or ill enough for … Read More Neptune/Mars = Angry Impotence?
