“The Trials and Tribulations of Saturn in Pisces”   I always advise parents and teachers to get to grips with their Saturn so believe me when I say I’ve been giving my Saturn a top notch workout. These past few months have seen some crazy scheduling, some full -throttle research and the kind of organising and diplomacy skills that only come from  years of experience in a classroom. Yes, I’ve been a little busy and lest I tempt fate, allow me to thank the gods that be for the guidance it takes to get a mucky pup like me through […]

However, given there has been much speculation in astrological circles about the possibility that the author of the series, J K Rowling, is an astrologer (and […]

Tales from the ‘Titanic’

We hear so much about Kate and Leonardo in the movie Titanic that the real star of the show, Gloria Stuart is overlooked. In case the name isn’t familiar, Gloria played Rose as an old woman. It is her story, her romantic liaison with a poor boy from a different social class to hers that we are listening to when we watch the film. Gloria was a classic actress of the silver screen. Born 4 July 1910, she was of the right age and physical beauty to be involved in the so called Golden age of Hollywood. From 1932-1946, she acted […]
