The 12th House as a Vocational Indicator
If we were studying astrology in the 14th century or up to a thousand years before that, the 12th would be listed as one of the career houses. Planets placed there can show a vocation in the original sense of the word..
The Sepp Blatter Horoscope, Money, and Dishonesty
Sepp Blatter's horoscope is excellent for money, as one would expect. The ruler of the second house of money is angular (though peregrine!) and in favorable aspect to both benefics, which is marvelous...
Uranus Pluto and the Black Moon Lillith
Black Moon Lilith has a close connection with the underworld, it is not only Pluto's domain. She is comfortable there and had exiled herself to that realm over 5000 years ago. This was a time to emerge and bring her wisdom back to the collective consciousness. It would take some time...
Planetary Influences on the 5/11 axis: Helios and Ouranus
Analogical thinking is at the center of the idea "as above, so below"; without the concept of analogies, we would have a much harder time understanding virtually any abstraction, including how astrology..
World astrology forecast for 2014 and 2015
Corruption in all 3 branches of government in violation of the constitution is radicalizing much of the general populace into feeling that there is no option left but revolution. The established power structure wants to provoke violence. That would give them the excuse to impose a police state lock down and impose martial law by using there near total monopoly on the technology of violence...
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aries, October 8, 2014
The Aries Moon conjoins Uranus opposing the Libra Sun conjunct Venus with Pluto in Capricorn forming a T-Square with both.

It might be necessary to revisit the issues we dealt with last April when the cardinal Grand Cross was in full force...
The Mansions of the Moon
The twenty-eight Mansions of the Moon divide the Zodiac in the same way as the twelve Signs of the Zodiac, marking out sectors of the circle of the sky, though, since the number of degrees in a circle, 360°, is not neatly divisible by 28, their span is an awkward 12°51'25.7" (a 364 degree circle would be neater)...

The Evolution of Western Astrology
Western astrology arose out of a synthesis of Babylonian, Greek and Egyptian ideas between the second millennium B.C. or earlier, and the second century B.C. Although documentary evidence is scanty, something that we would recognize as horoscopic astrology existed by 200 B.C...
Astrology: Art, Science or Craft?
Many times, I've had people ask if astrology is an art or science. Ultimately, I look at it as a craft, but I think it is more an art than a science. I know many other astrologers would disagree, which for me, testifies more to its art than to its science. This is more than just a light-hearted question, however. I think if one comes to think of astrology as a definitive science, like chemistry, one is also bound for some deep disappointments and prone to more surprising results. Let me explain...
