Astrology in the Information Age
One hundred years ago, students seeking to improve their knowledge of astrology pored over the birth charts (horoscopes) published in Alan Leo's 1001 Notable Nativities book. A big part of the learning curve for astrologers in this era involved studying these charts to discover commonalities...
The City of Baghdad, a curious astrological election
Baghdad was founded in 762 on July 31st. It is one of the few great cities of the globe where astrologers had a say in the timing of its first brick...
An Encounter With a Skeptic
