Uranus conjuncts natal Moon;  website gets makeover
Actually, my life is getting a makeover. Stomach surgery, plans to sell up and move, new job, and a return to the roots. This has a Saturn/Moon shakeup written all over it. Whether it is wise or not to start one's life over is a matter of debate. But when Uranus goes over the Ascendent and into the first house then there is no arguing with a God of Change.

And Now, A Little Message From Our Friend, Anonymous

The Truth about Scientology

"Until recently, I was amongst the millions of people who saw the Church of Scientology as a “kooky religion” or just another “Hollywood fad”. Then I did some research.

The so-called “Church” of Scientology is not a religion,
it is a dangerous and power-hungry cult.

A cult which scams its members out of thousands of dollars. A cult which uses harassment and intimidation to silence critics. A cult which masquerades as a religion wherever it can in order to gain tax-exempt status. A cult which has infiltrated governments. A cult which has killed.

Do not let yourself or anyone you know be fooled by this cult. Become aware. Become informed. " | |

Rant Redux

Science cannot explain how astrology's ideas are supposed to work.

Perhaps that is a failure of science. Perhaps a social science, such as psychology, has better tools to explain why we made the connections in the first place, between planets, luminaries, and events on Earth.

Here's something I would really like to know: why did Mankind start the process of matching astronomical observations to our Earthly realm? It seems perfectly natural that we would do that…why is it natural? Was it all just an Ego thing?

Modern astrologers often have a little bit of psychology under their belt.  Hasn't it been said that a little bit of knowledge makes a person dangerously confident?

Now I love looking at a horoscope from a psychological p.o.v. just as much as anyone. But don't you agree that it isn't the whole story? Our experiences are sometimes inexplicable. Moments of such magic they can't ever be described.

So I have to ask: amongst the perceived 'collusion' (hateful concept) and the 'enabling' of psychology's personal narrative, where is Nature?  Where are the animals who co-exist with us? Where are the tigers? The koalas? Where are are the majestic elephants? Psychology has no room for elephants. Except for the metaphorical kind which seem to like occupying various rooms whilst appearing not to do so.

Astrology has a legacy of centuries of human behaviour models . It is a God-given predictive system. Earthly bodies contain souls made up of divine numbers, which astrologers attempt to grasp as a whole.

So, as we shift away from the fortune-teller image, we should also not mistake the horoscope as a strictly psychological statement.

Because we are more than our psychology .

Medieval and Ancient astrology has had a profound impact on my life. In just two weeks after beginning study, I lost 10 kilos! Not only that, but my floors were cleaner than my family can ever remember---I could see my face! The steak knives stayed sharp, and after 6 weeks I found Jesus! He told me how to use Medieval astrology to pick the winning horse 9 times out of 10! I was able to retire early!

It's A Bitch, Britney.

Life has been difficult for the clown pop princess: two children born quickly, a broken marriage, rehab(no, no, no), loss of management, loss of career, and now loss of custody of her children. As astrologers, where do we look in the chart, when loss is featured so heavily in one’s life?

Many astrologers would turn instantly to Neptune, and for good reason. Neptune can dribble away the flow of good things in a person’s life, leaving behind helplessness and despair. Neptune’s transit through the 5th house certainly facilitates the loss of her children.

But let’s think about this for a moment. We are not examining the life of someone who has suffered from the blows of uncaring fortune.  No, Britney Spears’s misfortunes come from herself, from her own actions...

45 days.

Ok, any astrologers call this one for Paris Hilton? C'mon be honest. Most people thought the teflon shield protectors were still operable. But look at Paris's transits: transiting Saturn over her natal Moon in Leo. Jupiter trines the Moon. Which one is stronger? If you are used to having more good times than bad, then Saturn's cold discipline is going to smart. Will Justice be served? Absolutely. She'll be a better person for her experience but Saturn's influence through Leo will be extremely humiliating.

Top 10 List of astrologers' favourite charts.

These are the chart examples which come up time and again in lectures etc.

1. Hitler
2. Venus Williams
3. Elizabeth Taylor
4. Dr. Martin Luther King
5. Queen Elizabeth I (or II)
6. Marilyn Monroe
7. Cher
8. Madonna
9.Nelson Mandela
10. John Lennon

One gives a little sigh and thinks, "Oh no, not Hitler AGAIN."
My better half wonders why anyone would want to study the horoscopes of bad people, anyways. He has a point. Yet the lure of a known birth time and a life lived on the world stage reels us in and we can't help ourselves. We MUST look.
But does anyone else think it's time for a new batch of celebrity lab rats???
Drop me a line with your own favourite cases to study. So far Britney Spears seems the hot front-runner.

Happy Easter.
I love these guys -
ExplorersWeb - and here is their Easter message:

"You know the story. A guy takes his many buddies out to dinner, foots the bill although it costs him his very flesh, and still he's betrayed for money by his best friend. The high priests don't like his inconvenient truths and the regular folks resent his criticizing their bad habits. So he's captured and put to death - even in a choice over a serial killer who is set free! Our man is nailed to a cross and perishes, after which he becomes really famous.

They say that he woke from the dead three days later but while all else makes sense, we are not sure we believe that last part. Morale of story in any case - climbing Everest is dangerous but so is keeping it real. Courage comes in different shapes.

And who's to say what's possible anyways - remember Lincoln Hall's miracle survival on Everest north side last year? Maybe Jesus did resurrect. Which would lead us to the second morale of the story for all you warriors out there: No matter what life throws at you - impossible is nothing. YOU CAN DO IT - and it ain't over 'til the fat lady sings."

Oh What A Tangled Schmozzle We Weave.
Apologies for the delay in writing dear friends. During the celebrations of Diwali last, the elephants charged into the office and trashed the joint---all in the name of good fun of course. But that means that time was spent reconstructing various notebooks and deconstructing the obscure notes within them.

However, this left an appointment open for our good pal Dr. Thoth to visit. He entertained us greatly with his pithy little tales, and left behind 3 stories in particular to pass on to you. Please enjoy "Introducing Dr. Thoth: The Book of the Hours of the Day,"   "Dr. Thoth: Between the Lines," and "Dr. Thoth and the Heresy of Art."

Fixed Stars.
Does anyone here ever go out into the night and pick out a favourite, lucky star?
Want to bet that you end up with one of the deep red stars like Antares or Aldebaran? Good choices. But it is most likely that you choose the most wonderful star in the sky---Sirius. This is a large white diamond of a star; the glittering light of Sirius demands your gaze...

Dodging Chiron's arrows.

In earlier years I struggled to integrate Chiron into my work. I don't use it at all now. The hypotheses of Chiron’s meaning remains, to me, unfulfilled. At the least it is puzzling. Chiron does not seem so benign. The “wounded healer” image is firmly set in our minds and is apt enough as it stands. Chiron the Centaur was wounded, could not heal himself in any way, yet continued to aid others until his plea for death was granted by Zeus. In sacrificing his immortality, he left an opening for Prometheus to be released from his everyday Hell and re-take his place amongst the Gods.... MORE

Sceptics: Do they really exist?

I’d have to say No. Other than the various Sceptic’s journals (which admittedly abound, but could have been written by anyone) there isn’t convincing proof, and the meta-analysis is inadequate. People posing as sceptics can be identified by the blue tinge in their cheeks as they splutter the usual phrases (like “logic” or “facts”). The only response to this harrowing display? “Well, astrology works for me!”  I find that gentles the most agitated questioner.

With trumpets blaring, we proudly open this space for grazing.

For those who like their astrology a bit on the green side, there are articles ready for digestion. Green astrology (from our very own Planet) holds the view that stars must be seen in their naked beauty, that is, outside; preferably gazed upon in the countryside or out in the desert. Here, the variance in magnitude and colour can be appreciated. Only then can the astrologer translate the Light from above, to the calculations of the chart. A fine sentiment, what?


Today’s Question: Why do we have a birth chart?

We need a short-cut to self-knowledge. Some people believe that astrology is “received from God” to help us with the Big Questions of life and move our souls toward purity...... looking for reasons why we need a birthchart? CLICK HERE
