Herschel, Uranus and Mary Shelley’s Vision of Horror

“Herschel, Uranus and Mary Shelley’s Vision of Horror” was  originally published in “The International Astrologer”, Aries 2009 issue for ISAR.  It was re-published in “Astrology Quarterly”, (Vol. 79, No 2) for The Astrological Lodge of London The article was updated in late 2016 with a corrected chart for the discovery of Uranus for an astrology lecture in Portugal and was re-formated on 14 May 2018, the day before Uranus ingressed into the sign or Taurus. “We are about to unfold the story of Frankenstein, a man of science who sought to create a man after his own image without reckoning upon […]

Allen Ginsberg

“Howling” Allen Ginsberg was born on 3 June 1926 with outrageous Jupiter in Aquarius (like Walt Whitman) and Saturn in Scorpio. Theoretically, had they all been born in the same place, he could have shared a classroom with Marilyn Monroe and Miles Davis (all 3 were born within days of each other)! Jupiter in Aqaurius Jupiter in Aquarius pupils can be a little, um, different. As I wrote in “Growing Pains”: “To say Jupiter in Aquarius pupils march to the beat of a different drummer is a bit of an understatement. These pupils seem to have an internal beat that […]

Educating Elliot Rodger

On 23 May 2014, the Isla Vista killings took place. The incident took place as the lunar phase was approaching the New Moon. My research on children and behaviour shows that poor behaviour is more likely to occur at this phase. Author’s note: One of the things I emphasise about using astrology in teaching is that it’s always important to check the balance of Jupiter and Saturn for the learners in question over the entire academic year. Elliot Rodger’s placement of Jupiter was unusual and for the sake of making a point, I want to demonstrate the possible impact this […]

9 Ways to Use Astrology to Help Your Child Cope With Secondary School (2016)

Pupils born between 1 September 2004 and 31 August 2005 will be gearing up to start secondary school in September. Studies show that pupils who are new to secondary school experience a dip in academic performance. For pupils leaving their familiar primary school, starting secondary school can be a bit of a shock to the system, just one cause of this dip. Strong support networks need to be in place to help these children cope with this process to avoid lack of progress or even regression. Here are just a few things new year 7s will have to contend with: […]

Ben Stiller

Ben Stiller was born on 30 November 1965 at 17:35 (Rodden Rating: A; Collector: Rodden) in New York with Jupiter in Gemini and Saturn in Pisces. His versatility as an actor has led to his films raking in a massive $79 million a pop. To date he has written, starred in, directed and/or produced over 50 film projects. As he is the son of veteran comedians/actors Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, it seems almost inevitable that Ben would become a Hollywood player. However, as we all know, parental success is no guarantee of the child’s success. By dissociate trine, Ben’s […]
