"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 […]

Jupiter in Libra

Alex Trenoweth’s original and ground-breaking research into Astrology and Education earned her the title of “Best International Astrologer of the Year, 2015” from the Krishnamurti Institute of Astrology of Kolkata India. Her book, “Growing Pains” is an exciting development in astrology as it combines classroom teaching experience, sound research and the potential to have a positive impact on struggling adolescents, parents and teachers. In this article, an excerpt from her book, she describes how the incoming group of year 7 pupils (11 year olds) need to learn and how teachers can support them. Of her work, Alex says: “I know that I […]

Saturn in Capricorn: The Hard Reign

A beautiful school in Kolkata Saturn will soon be in Capricorn for the next couple of years and everyone’s talking out it. OK, the astrologers are talking about it. It’s big shift all right and usually some sort of symbolism makes its way to the front pages of the international newspapers when Saturn changes signs.  Remember “Je suis Charlie?” just as Saturn lurched back and forth over the cusp of Scorpio and Sagittarius at the end of 2014? Saturn in Sagittarius began with our need to speak our Truth and it will end with a lot of us wondering what […]

“Trading Her Tomorrows”

This article appeared in the International Society for Astrological Research‘s (ISAR) magazine in 2017, just before what would have been Janis Joplin’s 75th birthday. ISAR is one of the largest astrological groups in the Western world. ISAR holds regular conferences every other year (except during United Astrology Conference years).

It’s even harder to believe that Janis Joplin, the surprise hit of the festival, would have […]

Childhood Education: A study by a teacher and astrologer

This article on astrology and education originally appeared in Dell Horoscope, the world’s leading astrology magazine. My new article “When a Flower Speaks” appears in the May/June 2018 issue. Dismissed for their lack of precision, non-replicable results and miniscule databases, modern day astrologers are often ridiculed by their skeptics. Can astrologers step up to the scientific plate or will they go down with the pseudoscience ship? In my role as a schoolteacher, the bias against being an astrologer was so great that I was actually threatened with dismissal should any parent complain about my interests in the subject. As I […]

End of Season for Cherry Picking

Astrology Research that engages sceptics is very rare. If it does exist, then Astrologers are dismissed by their critics for their lack of precision, non-replicable results and minuscule databases. I wanted to address these criticisms and show other astrologers how they can too. This first hand version of the events leading up to publication of my research on adolescent behaviour and lunar phases appeared in the Autumn equinox 2017 edition of The Career Astrologer published by The Organization for Professional Astrologers and is posted here with grateful permission. My research into adolescent behaviour and lunar phases first made the astrology headlines with […]
