Dec. 21 2012. The End of the World

Well friends, countrymen, countrywomen, colleagues, foreign nationals and humans of all shapes and sizes, we have now arrived at the end of the Mayan Tzolkin Long Count Calender, the end of the world. I am a little uncertain as to why a central american tribe gets to end the world for all of us, it seems a little absurd, like allowing a christian fundamentalist theologists to be the one who gets...

The Awesome Saturn Return

I would like to continue with the Saturn theme. The Saturn Return is considered by many to be an epic event. Of all the astrological subjects that come up during readings from people who are casual in there relationship to astrology, this is number two. Number one, for the record, would be the Sun, Moon, Ascendant signs. Why do people tremble something terrible at the mere mention of the Saturn...

Crazy Mercury goes Retrograde Nov. 6th. All Mayham follows, or perhaps not.

Mercury. The Trickster, the jester, the fleet foot, changes his direction on Nov. 6th. You thought things were going one way, and then they went another way. As usual when posting on mercury retrograde astrolger's say, "travel plans go awry, communications become difficult, electronics fail, contracts are negated, slow down". And those of us who love using astrology as a philosophical tool within...

The Old Man wanders into Scorpio

Saturn, in astrology, has a certain fatalism implied to him. Saturn is an old man, a devil, he is horned, he illuminates the final darkness of the solar system that extends infinitely beyond the visible circle of light of the Sun. For no Planet past Saturn is visible to our naked eye, when we peer into the sky, from our home the earth. When Saturn moves he moves with fate, he moves slowly, and...

The Big Dogs Bark.

Like most mortals, I was stunned by Bill Clintons speech last night. Before it started, I was running around the house telling my wife and kids, "Bill Clinton is speaking tonight, you have to hear this man speak, he is one of the most gifted speakers in the world." Unlike them, I am old enough to remember his brilliance when he was orating in front of Congress, giving the State of the Union...

Mitt Romneys Chart is not exalted

It is a terrible and powerful thing to start reading astrology blogs. Thank you for your patience if you find your way here. Today I happened to read a few and both seemed to me to be written as if they were trying to convince people that astrology is just babble. Babble here means arguments that are above the comprehension of a non practitioner of the art of astrology, and that do not hold up...
