Astrology and "Gone with the wind"

The Astrology of “Gone With the Wind”

The astrology of “Gone with the Wind” first caught my attention in Neil Spencer’s fine book “True as the Stars Above”. Spencer described “Gone With the Wind” as “a thinly disguised astrological allegory. Margaret Mitchell based the characters of her torrid epic onthe zodiac, leaving a blatant trail of clues which were only picked up in 1978 when US astrologer Darrell Martinie was shown photocopies of notes from Mitchell’s library.” Excited by the thought of exploring the characters in more detail, Neil (who is a good friend of mine) and I did our best to get our hands on those notes.

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 […]

13 Things Astrologers Wish Muggles Understood About Astrology

I meet a lot of people who, for a wide variety of reasons, dislike astrology. I don’t care too much about this. But I do care that I find myself answering the same questions over and over again.

Then I figured a lot of other astrologers might also be tired of answering the same questions. So, being the nice person I am, I decided to write them down. Without further ado. . […]
