The astrology of Gone With the Wind

The Search For Scarlett O’Hara

The astrology of “Gone With the Wind” can be found in this article: “Gone With the Wind” The Zodiacal Parade“. I’ve always loved the versatility of astrology. I also like to push my luck. So one day, I thought I’d break every rule of synastry (according to the feedback I got from the Faculty of Astrological Studies) by using the composite chart of author Margaret Mitchell and actress Vivien Leigh to explain the character of Scarlett O’Hara. I had a lot of fun exploring “Gone With the Wind” even though I’m not a particular fan of the film or book (although […]

Astrology and "Gone with the wind"

The Astrology of “Gone With the Wind”

The Missing Notes! The Astrology of “Gone With the Wind” was not only my first published astrology article, it was also the topic of my first presentation at UAC in 2008. I was no particular fan of the movie or the book–until I found out the main characters were based on the signs of the zodiac. Since the article came out, I’ve heard all sorts of other guesses about what sign a character might be but I used what Margret Mitchell tenuously said they were. “Tenuously” needs a bit of explaining. The astrology of “Gone with the Wind” first caught my attention […]

Rock hunting with Naomi at the Sedona Vedic Astrology Conference

Sedona Vedic Astrology Conference

The Sedona Vedic Astrology Conference (SVAC) is held annually in Arizona, USA and is hosted by Dr Dennis Harness and is supported by top Jyotish astrologers from around the world. Although I am not a Vedic astrologer, I can’t help but fawn over Dennis: he is not only a brilliant astrologer and a wonderful person but I credit him for helping me overcome my resistance to the sidereal zodiac and its accompanying techniques. I’ll never forget the moment when my astro brother Ian Waisler and I picked up his book in Cape Town and the two of us began hacking […]

Solstice 2018, Rumi

Happy Solstice 2018

It’s the Winter Solstice 2018 for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere and Summer Solstice for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere. Wherever you are, the solstices are not only astronomically important but important markers in human life as well. Personally, I’ve always used the solstices to to reflect on what I’ve achieved and make new goals and targets. Everyone always says how quickly the year has passed. So much has happened this year that I look back on it in absolute awe. I’ll be posting the yearly horoscopes soon so be sure to pop back in. I’ve […]

"In Cold Blood"

In Cold Blood: the Book that Shocked America

“In Cold Blood” was written by the American author Truman Capote. The book became one of the first “non fiction novels” and detailed the horrific murder of the Clutter family in 1959. Completed in 1966, just after the execution of the perpetrators, “In Cold Blood” was an instant bestseller. Arguably, Capote also made the two murderers, Richard Hickok and Perry Smith posthumously famous. However, Capote was condemned for using the gruesome details of the murders to bring attention to his book. More recently, “In Cold Blood” has been criticised for its inaccurate portrayal of the Clutter family. This article examines the […]
