Financial Astrology – might we be headed for a significant recession in 2025-2026?

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to attend an entire day of lectures by Christeen Skinner about financial astrology. Although I learned many things (including that my harmonious natal connection between Jupiter and Pluto  keeps me financially afloat during tough times), my priority was to gain information to support my work-in-process novel, The Curve of Capricorn, and  its primary premise that during the period leading up … Read More Financial Astrology – might we be headed for a significant recession in 2025-2026?

Will my novel, Curve of Capricorn, be published if I do JB’s Bestseller Fiction Masterclass?

  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. Interestingly, if it is true that publication is usually about 12 months after signing a … Read More Will my novel, Curve of Capricorn, be published if I do JB’s Bestseller Fiction Masterclass?

The Concept of Canon & The Secret Book of John

If we accept that (1) the concept of canon has existed for at least two thousand years and likely to exist for a few more and (2) in our increasingly globally mobile society, canon formation will not become easier then we need to look for a new solution and I propose that to be a radical change in our point of view.

Love’s Alchemy & the Alchemical Marriage

Enter Mercury to facilitate the active dialogue and transference which is at the base of all therapeutic work.

Love’s Alchemy & the Golden Age of Saturn

Because Saturn marks the boundary between personal and transpersonal (cosmic) powers, it is the alchemists most important planet being equated with both the beginning and end of the Great Work.

Love’s Alchemy – Stage I – The Purification process or Calcinatio

Calcinatio is a fiery, burning process governed by Aries/Mars during which the dross is burned off to purify rather like the process during which diamonds are formed.

Love’s Alchemy – Astrological Character Analysis – Heroine – Judith Shakespeare

Despite all that Scorpio, I do try to be honest and sincere and one of my greatest achievements is that because of this, I’m often put in positions of great trust.

Hens & Chicks

If Ms. Green-Peas, a belly dancer from New Hampshire, could capture the heart of the nation, then there was no reason her chick might not do the same.

The Secret of Silene Tomentosa

If anyone had asked why he’d done this every morning for the past six months, he’d gladly have told them. But since no one – not even his wife – had shown the least interest in his labours, he’d kept the secret of Silene tomentosa to himself.

And all you wanted was a good ghost story…

Instead of fearing loss of meaning as did our forefathers, post-moderns fear loss of touch with reality. Makes perfect sense in today’s world where entertainment, information, and communication technologies provide experiences more intense – and gratifying – than RL or ‘real life’.

Will the Literary Agent that just asked for a partial decide to represent me?

I’m not as good at horary astrology as I might like to be, but every once and awhile, I do give it a try. I’ve just finished my first astrological novel – The Curve of Capricorn (not quite like the Booker Prize winning The Luminaries, but just as good if I might say so myself).  In the process of sending out query letters to … Read More Will the Literary Agent that just asked for a partial decide to represent me?

The Pinch of Pisces

Not only has post humanism made redundant our most fundamental assumption that God is superior to man but also that man is in turn superior to nature. This leaves nothing left but nature and the funny thing is that the distinctions were all manmade in the first place.
